Oden's Sketchybook *Update May 27th*
Hey all -- a brief bio;
I'm 20 years old, attending UVIC and majoring in Biology....but reaaally wanting to be going to art school. I'm thinking about trying even just a year or two at a decent art school before finishing my "real" degree.
I'm from Nelson B.C., which is a beautiful mountain town in the kootenays and a constant source of inspiration.
I started fooling around with acrylics (and now oils) on canvas about a year ago, although I've always liked to doodle and sketch.

older sketches and studies
here are a few random studies and sketches I've done in the past couple of months...
p.s. is there any way to adjust the layout of attachments? like make them go linear instead of side-by-side?
anyways, the bottom two are Bridgeman studies. The top right is a sketch of the Kokanee glacier visible down the valley, and some studies of clouds. Clouds are cool.
The top left is random sketches, and the center head is a copy from a very useful CA post..I forget the poster now.

Damn good for a Biology student. I would love to wear the fourth page as a T-shirt. Perhaps you have a page just filled with doodles you would like to show?

uggghhh, sorry guys. I'm seriously questioning if it's worth having a sketchbook if I'm gonna be this unproductive. It just makes me feel guilty for not posting...
...I guess that's a good thing.
@everybody: thanks for the comments!
Jeff: cool mang, small world indeed. Were you born there, or did you go to Selkirk?
Here's a small art dump...paintings from the last half-year, minus a few I still have to get pictures of. I have a bunch more sketchbook pages and bridgman studies that I'll try to get up here within a reasonable timeframe as well (ie. 1 month )
the majority are water-soluble oil on canvas (love this stuff), although Red Cloud is pure acrylic.
and yeah, the shaman's neck is super-way too long. He's been dancing too much for the giraffe spirits, obviously.

Man I love that style. Your technique needs polishing ( but whose doesn't? ) but You actually rock now. I'm scared of what You may become

Awwh man your work is too cool, I love your paintings! Really, really hope you'll keep posting because I wanna see moooore.

cool styling - these remind me of a very early greg staples from 2000AD - he did a particular series called 'Slaine - Jealousy of Niamh'- Pretty cool
I like the darker undertones and the blocky styling...with the swirly bits-
And the guy leaning on the tree has a nice feel too - What is the general size of your works?
September 23rd, 2008 #11
thanks all...I appreciate the wordz. I'll try to keep pluggin away. School makes it tough, though.
@thanks Tor, the general size is probably ~18x24 inches...some are flipped everywhichaways, some are slightly different dimensions, but it's a decent approximation.
the reclining elf dude is around 20x24, but don't quote me on it.
...they're getting bigger...
