lovely stuff here man! that Gerhartz study is great.
I feel the same way about Alla Prima, I think it's the most attractive way to me. It works well for me in studies etc. but when I do my own work it all goes to hell. I feel like I can't describe forms without rendering the shit out of it most of the time. I suppose I'm not comfortable with the forms yet to start to simplify them. Anyhoo.. Great stuff!
Hey bro, you have a good attitude toward your work, I particulary liked how you set some goals for yourself for the year.
Really pleased to see the Sargent study, as well as the Gerhartz, the colour on the Gerhartz is particularly striking too.
Yeah, go do the whole Bridgman book, or have fun, but improve yeah. =)
gooood thinking and planning in terms of painting more alla prima. I completely agree with you in terms of finding it one of the more pleasing styles.
Nothing to crit really because you seem so motivated! Just keep up the hard work and thanks for motivating me to do more long studies
those latest updates are killer man! i love your sense of color in that last study! and your lines, ooohh your lines are very attractive. keep it up man, everything is looking fantastic!

alexson-Oh dude I feel the same way when I do imaginative stuff. I think I render the crap out of everything becuse I dont have enough imformation to make it simplier. Still trying to find a balence with that stuff. thanks for stoppin by Alexson will check out those updates in your SB.

~Going back to ths old Gerome study another new years resolution is to finish this thing XD I looked into Geromes process of his paintings and he did a very technical mapped out drawing under most of his paintings to figure out his perspective and stuff. I've been doing this study in a alla prima sort fashion wich will probly be my downfall for this study : P
~Got an antelope skull for chistmas from a freind the drawings are from still life just trying to draw it in alot of diffrent angles before I do a longer study of it. and the color study is from a photo

Thanks for commenting in my sketchbook! Those are some great studies! I love all of the antelope skulls, that's an awesome present. I don't know if you're finished with that Gerome study yet, but if you aren't definately flesh out the people he's looking at because now he's just leadin gthe eye to rough paint strokes. Great new year's resolution though! I got a Sargent book for Christmas so I have to pluck up some courage and do studies from it.
Hey Omerta great stills in here man especially like the natural lighting one damn thats gotta be hard, your lines are so smooth and clean you can tell your a graffiti enthusiast atleast! haha Keep it up man lets see more!
You drew a lot of heads on the last page!
I really like how you handle colors and lightning!
This seem to be your strenght!
Try to do more anatomical studies. The skulls in you head studies were very rough!
Just keep practicing! Sil!
Yeepppp that's looking great! There's something magical in skulls isn't there? Really hard to get a bad drawing out of them. There's an element of mystery...
Colors are looking fab too! Though I think there are some lines that aren't quite congruent (the rugs?)
the brushstrokes on the deer are amazing. Lovely colours too!
Great stuff Jamie the Gerhartz study is really good, your interpretation of colour is really unique, I like it a lot Sounds like a good set of resolutions, keep to them and you'll do great
Holy Crap. In one week you've improved a ton.
Love the gladiator scene. The foreground and mid-ground is rendered well. The dead bodies are awesome XD
I dunno if it's me, but I think you struggled a bid on the background. If this helps when rendering the bg try to use atmospheric perspective. As something recedes into space it'll mix more with the back light. Like if you have some green trees and you have a blue sky. Then as the trees disappear into space mix more and more blue to create an illusion of depth.
Shoot Keep the pace up your doing excellent.
I'm out to conquer the world equipped with a pencil, digital paint and a Sketchbook
and when I do achieve that goal...I'll conquer the moon too

Thanks for popping by my SB mate. I love the economy of line you have, I really need to work on that myself. I always make a shape and scrub away at if for ages, wish I could get to the shape I want earlier on. But I guess that's practice ey
Nice line work on the figure studies. The painting studies are nice as well. I think I wanna do some now.
Hello! I really enjoyed looking through your sketchbook. You have some impressivestuff in here! I like the antelope skull studies.
Thank you everyone for the lovely comments its encouraging.
deerinheadlights- will try and render out those figures hes looking at. It's almost defeating even trying to start rendering one of those figures out of the hundreds hes looking at XD
fudgeloaf-Yeah I think graffiti is a good way to practice or warm up your lines before going into different work.
Silwynar- Yeah been slacking on my anatomy studies gotta break out the books again.
sanakris- Atmosphere that's something I've really never studied into will keep that in mind. Thanks for the crit always appreciated
P- Hey Pijus for those strokes I'm using some default brushes and some square oil brush I found on deviant art along time ago. I try to experiment with different flow and opacity settings sometimes but generally like to have my flow and opacity at 100% with pen pressure on. Hope that answers your question.
Here is my natural light still life I've been working on.
still cant say its finished. I rendered to much on a lot of stuff. Deadening any focal point. But overall I've had a good time on it natural light is interesting!

Stilllife went really nice.
It only looks a little bit confusing because there are such much things in so much colors.
The eye doesn't really know where to focus first.
Also the reflected LED light on the skull seems a little bit too strong in my opinion.
Anyway great job and this was really hard work i think.
Keep it up!
