WOOOOOW dude!! sick sketchbook! you go to RISD? im up at mass art right now, i was thinking about RISD, but figured id stay in mass. i cant believe youve only been painting digitally for such a short time. i wish i experimented more with my digital work like you do, you get some very cool results in your speed paintings, im freakin jealous! but seriously, nice stuff dude, keep at it!
NickyBeats: Thanks, man! I actually transferred away from RISD and am at VCU now. RISD just wasn't worth all that money.
Here's a couple paintings I did in my figure painting class. Forgive the shoddy photos... we wipe out our paintings at the end of class, so I don't really have time to take good photos of them.
These are some sketches I did for a class assignment where we're doing a movie poster.
allways great to see that there are still people workin with traditionals - and damn your traditionals are great!!!
Sick moleskin pages, love them.. really nice line controll with that bolder marker. Also those thumbnail sketches with couache are looking dope, also all that other stuff after and before that, lots of ideas that can be worked on further on those environments. Will check some stuff on previous pages also. All that I can say is keep on going. Btw are there any benefits in working with couache in your option? Just interested, I myself aint really into painting that much.. but I remember that working with couache sucked compared to acrylics (though I haven't discovered neither of those mediums deeply)
xbert: There's just nothing quite like traditional. I mean, I love the speed I can get with digital, but it never feels/smells the same.
spark_zero: Gouache (with a G!) is a tricky beast. The quality of marks is a little different than acrylics, and it's a helluva lot easier to get soft edges/transitions in gouache. I honestly haven't used it that much, though. Thanks for looking!
Today's figure painting in class. About 1.5 hours:
Another painting from class. Again, please forgive the shoddy iphone picture.
Hey Noah, I love your sketchbook so far, if you haven't already, think about buying some hard plasticine to sculpt little roughs of whatever figure you're working on as well, it'll really help.
nice sketchbook, love your pencil and inks
Reymus: Thanks! I agree with you: sculpture is amazingly helpful. I've actually done a bit of sculpture in the past (about a year ago). Here's a link to my sculpture work. Brings back good memories... I need to take another shot at it sometime.
DeeStar: Thanks for looking!
Trying to work on my environment skills some more. Tons of fun.
Another portrait from class. Only had about an hour on this.
Another speedpaint. I'm hearing again and again that my landscapes/environments are the strong point of my work, so I figure it's a good idea to keep working on them. I love doing 'em, too, so that certainly helps.
Wanted to do something a bit more subtle than my usual crazy-epic lighting.
Crankin' out the art these days. Feels really good.
First up is another quick portrait from class.
A few recent speedpaintings. Figure I'll crank out a bunch of these, and the cream of the crop will get taken to finish. On the first one I kept trying to do the subtle thing. Good practice, at least.
Couple referenced-studies from class.
looking at some of your work makes me want to pull out a pencil and start drawing may I ask what was your research when coming up with the fantasy ideas for your illistrations/landscapes this is really good stuff your producing

Reason: looking through more of your work
Mac Con: Thanks! Pull out that pencil and start making some art! As far as ideas... I don't know. I look at a lot of art, as well as photography, and observing life. As they say: be a sponge.
Another landscape piece. Actually lucked out and got assigned one for class.
