    MBK- Thanks! Hopefully this stuff will just keep getting better and better.

    Metal Fingers- I definitely agree, I think my shapes and value can get muddled at times.

    p sage- The Rodin is from life, I have to little miniature book ends. If the legs seem long it might be do to some bad foreshortening on my end.

    agelos- Hopefully it won't take as long for me to get to those next seven pages as it took me to get here.

    teapo- the space piece, as it stands, is about 45 minutes of noodling. I think it's kind of hard, especially with the smaller dot like elements because your natural instinct is to go to a brush that can do the random dots, but they end up being a little to perfect. I've got a long ways to go on the texture front.

    adamsimons- Hopefully I'll get a better camera sooner rather than later, that way I can do the paintings a bit more justice.


    not my best update, but in my defense, I've been on vacation for the past few days. i'm trying to work on my lines both digitally and traditionally. I tend to be a bit excessive when I start out. The painting is one of four that will be some semi-abstract paintings of the Milky Way, painting title is Mother's Milk I. The rest are just some random studies and some further doodling on a knight sketch.

    I'll be swinging around sketchbooks soon, thanks for dropping by.

    Update on my kingslayer and added the last dragon. Trying to get back into the Zelda piece now that I've had some figure drawing practice. Pencil and PS.

    yo man! thanks for stopping by my sketchbook! love your work in here, the traditional paints are really nice. great pallete and lighting in those portraits. i really envy anyone who can nail colors with actual paint. even with my digital color, being able to change it all instantly, i struggle with that. keep up with the studies, they are paying off alot!

    Loving your sketchbooks and characters. Your studies are awesome - they have a michaelangelo feel to them - does that make sense

    Nickybeats- Traditional stuff really help on speeding up the digital work, mostly because you can't undo in real life, so you learn to triple check stuff before moving on, which helps out when you get on the computer.

    steveland- thanks for dropping a line!


    I'm feeling kind of shitty today. Not sure why, but I haven't been to productive. I think I need to take a walk or something.

    You have a lot of good stuff in here, man. Your studies are great and your drawings from imagination look awesome.

    I really like some of the earlier incarnations of the Zelda piece. I think the best is 171.

    bishop- thanks for dropping a line buddy


    Feeling a lot better today, despite the fact that I'm developing an entrapped ulnar nerve, basically losing the feeling in two of my fingers on my left hand. Umm....WIPS. I'm working on the Zelda piece again, lots of work there.

    Structurally and value-wise, things are looking good (the last two heads, and the figures). Keep pounding away.

    Ugh. I'm to lazy to scan in pencils at the moment. It has been a little hard to focus the past week. We adopted a pup from the shelter, and I have spent the past few days house breaking him. On top of that, he got pretty sick, and I'm a bit worried he has Distemper. He's pretty hard up.

    Anyways, this is just an update to get the ball rolling again.

    Do it.

    To it.

    p-sage- thanks, pound away we must.

    ludic- thanks!

    dan- thanks man, I'm having hell getting things to look right, but they're getting there.

    teapo- yeah, I'm turning into a Game of Thrones nerd. I haven't touched fantasy novels since I was a teen, but the HBO series got me interested. I really love the set and costume design that the Series has

    Some traditional stuff I've been kicking around. I've got a lot of things up in the air. School is about to start, blargh. The plan is to get everything going during the summer, then finish it up as the school year goes. One week to finish up each piece.

    damn school... always getting in the way of things! XD well i do hope you will update as much as possible when you're slaving away in the academics these latest paintings are great~ really dig the 'muddy' (in a good way) quality in the colors. i think what's always drawn me to your work is the color scheme you have in your pieces. sort of muted/desaturated (which i love!)

    anyway, looking forward to these paintings to be finished!

    Great stuff in here! I particularly like #5 & #7 in the last post (the more "abstract" ones). The have a great tonality and mood to them. Also, the digital stuff looks like it's getting stronger. the Zelda WIPs look strong too.

    As an aside, you mentioned a problem with your hand. Is it Cubital Tunnel Syndrome? If so, I have the same problem. I got it years ago when I accidentally banged my elbow on a desk and damaged some nerves near my elbow. If you take care of it, it should go away, but it might take months.

    "Contrary to the belief of the layman, the essential of art is not to imitate nature, but under the guise of imitation to stir up excitement with pure plastic elements: measurements, directions, ornaments, lights, values, colors, substances, divided and organized according to the injunctions of natural laws. While so occupied, the artist never ceases to be subservient to nature, but instead of imitating the incidents in a paltry way, he imitates the laws."-Andre Lhote

    I really like the golden armor guy and the abstract juicy painting in the ones your "kicking around". Glad to see your carrying your sketchbook around a bit more.

    Cheers.

    Wow. What a difference three months can make. So, as I said previously, with school going, I'm slammed pretty much around the clock.

    On top of that, my wife and I finally had our little girl in October. She's absolutely beautiful, and damn it if she doesn't already have me wrapped around her little finger. My son is being super awesome with her, helping where and when he can. I just can't describe how utterly happy I am.

    With Thanksgiving vacation here, I've been able to catch up on some painting and drawing. I have SO much to finish it's ridiculous. I'm applying to graduate school in the next month or so, which really puts the heat on. These are some current progress shots with my crappy phone cam. I'll be borrowing a decent camera to take portfolio shots towards the end of December. Anyways, here's a walk through of my kitchen/studio. Mostly just the space pieces and some abstractions. Still have work to do on the portraits and figurative works. Learning a lot in a very short span of time

    Congrats for the newborn baby.
    You are right, things can change so much in
    three month time.
    You have a pretty cool painting studio there,
    and your work, mostly the traditionals are
    eXtra fantastic.

    Hi CK
    Thanks for dropping by my SB, I'm pretty swamped@ work so I haven't been able to update much lately. You've got some wonderful work here, great variety of media. I'll have to pick your brain sometime as to some of those terrific little textures in some of the digital work, and your traditional work is equally strong! I'm looking forward to seeing more
    As for the anatomy question you had asked, I've been at it for some time, so I guess you could say I've put more than a few hours in. I'm really not all that true to actual anatomy anymore in favour of a little exaggeration, but I try to ground my little characters in some form of reality so that they don't seem completely off the wall.
    Either way, there's always something new to explore, it never gets old.
    Anyways, keep up the great work here!

    yo yo CK! that is some great news to be had about your newborn girl. i'm sure she is enjoying her first Christmas or whichever holiday you celebrate this time of year! especially with the awesome portraits you're doing of the kids. i'm curious, what medium do u use with your oil paints? i'm particularly drawn to the 'softness' you create in your traditional work. alright then, i will be waiting for the update! stay cool and Happy Holidays!
