andres333: Thanks man!
It's my birthday today, so to have a little bit of fun I did some painting. Woo.
Hiiii, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
Really like your sketchbook so far! I love the mood of that last painting (#91)
Your creature designs are nice :]
I'm really enjoying your speedpaintings, especially the one in post #75. And happy birthday!
Hey happy birthday
Great colors and quality with your enviros
First image is a study for an oil painting I really want to do. My professor suggested I try to do some traditional landscapes, and I think it was good advice. It's based loosely on a nearby mountain in Virginia. The second is just another speedpaint I struggled through.
fun stuff here, keep on keeping on.
Thanks y'all! I love the encouragement.
Been busy with a lot of non-art-related junk lately. On the other hand, I've also been prepping for IlluXCon next week. First convention for me, and also my first professional portfolio review (with Jon Schindehette). I'm pretty pumped to go and meet all of my art heroes. It's gonna be a blast.
So-so little landscape while chatting on the phone:
Thought it might be good to work on my portrait skills, so I did a couple imagined portraits.
Finally participated in one of the EOW challenges. Here's my entry from last week:
I've got a ton of traditional sketchbook work I'm going to try to scan soon and post here. Until next time... back to writing papers.
Some traditional sketchbook stuff.
That's the end of my first sketchbook for class. I'm doing a second for extra credit. I went ahead and picked up one of the A4 moleskines so I'd have a little more room. I really wanted to start to do some painted studies, so using movie still and photos for reference I've been doing some of that. The early b&w ones are gouache, but then I moved to acrylics. It's been a lot of fun to do.
Hi! Nice SB, Noah!
I really dig your enviros, they're fascinating! I never done one myself, but i think i might after looking at your stuffs. Your productivity is to be exampled, especially by me But i noticed one thing though, I learned that you have a tendency to make necks too vertical straight, as shown in your last two portraits in post #10/p4.
keep up the good work
Your environments are getting pretty juicy
Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!
Thanks guys! The encouragement always makes it a little easier to carry on. Sorry for the absence lately. Lots of exciting things happening, but it hasn't left much time for my own work. Went to IlluXCon, which was amazing. The week after I participated in a group show where I managed to sell off a piece. And now I'm wrapping up the semester with some final projects.
Took some time off to do a little speedpaint. I've been aching for a while now to show more distance in my paintings, which is what I tried with this one.
EDIT: Forgot to mention, but my art was just featured on ArtOrder! Woo!
