    Kev, I second THIS to the absolute max. I've been staring at that plate in my anatomy book for years now and I've come to the conclusion that IMHO mikey is the best sketch artist in history.

    Oh, and I'd like to have any of your loose sketches Kev.... thinking of emptying your sketchbook anytime soon

    Justin Sweet Anyone?? www.justinsweet.com

    BTW, Does anyone have an image that he posted on this site a loooong time ago...it was of an orcish character who had his arms raised above his head whilst grasping a hammer. He had a look on his face like he was gonna beat the shit outta something. I didn't get the chance to save it, and he took it off the site....

    Some of these look rather finished IMO

    But I'd buy that dead bird one depending on how big it was, it looks rather cool and finished enough

    Hope those are not copyright infrigments. If so, please PM and I'll take them down. I'm nervous posting external art, but those two sketches are just too cool to spare.

    Thank you Kev for putting a real worthwile topic in this place and for all the excellent choices! I just hope they're all uploaded directly and not hotlinked or they'll end up disappearing over time.

    I'm loving everyone's choices so far. I think, so far as the theme of the thread, we should stick to drawing. There could be a seperate one for painting/sculpture, etc. Be sure to mention artists's names, people. I'll go back later and edit this post to add some of my own choices. I have a feeling most of it would be from CA member's sketchbooks. That could just go on endlessly. Hmmm, maybe we should make it a point to pick artists seperate from the site just to get us seeing something new. depends...

    Alright, Famous Artists, starting with the files I already have on my drive:

    Cassatt - Mother and Child
    Durer - Hare, The Knight, Death, & the Devil (this image is all pixelly, anyone have a better file of it?)
    Escher - Hand & Globe, Hands, Three Spheres, Reptiles
    Wyeth - brandywine valley

    I have a couple files of Van Gogh's drawing but they're all so small they'd just look like crap here. I really love his drawing, so if anyone has good files of his work - plus more Wyeth, please post em.

    Also I would post Homer's watercolors, but I'm not sure if it fits under the term "loose sketch"

    I remember a sketchtrading thread dating from a few years ago. Are people still doing it? maybe it needs a revival.

    What, sketches? That's MADNESS! Who would want sketches?

    Mark me down for some Peter de Seve sketches though

    I got to meet Michael Whelan at a book signing once, and there sadly just wasn't much of a crowd. It was at a Costco type place where they had a ton of his new book, and most of the shoppers just had no idea who he was. Anyways myself and a few friends made the trip to meet him, and I was lucky enough to get him to sketch me a little something, while getting to chat with him a decent bit. Sadly, over the years and many moves later I now have lost it. I half expect an ex girlfriend stole it, but I'll never know. I've run into him a few times here and there but never had the nerve to ask for a sketch again. I guess it's getting older and realizing how audacious the request had been the first time (I was young and in art school), and how much of a pain those sorts of requests are.
