    Portfolio

    This is my portfolio. The Elephant, Leopard Boy, and Bob Marley pieces were done from photo reference. All else is from life. I intend on transferring the hands onto canvas and painting them in oils.

    thanks for replying to my sketchbook/thread. Nice studies here! I like the reductive figure drawing it really brings out the lights.

    is that a linoleum print of bob marley? where you have to carve all of the layers with a little knife? I remember doing that in high school, a whole week in the garage in 95 degree weather, carving away a 2x3 linoleum slab, doing 25 prints.

    3 came out decent. waste of time.

    Anyway, hands are super awesome and nice line quality. Hope you hear word soon from Ringling!

    Equality: Thanks for stopping by man. The Marley was done in watercolor, in wash stages varying in value. Got my fingers crossed for sophomore placement lol
    DeeLock: Thanks!

    Yo!
    Really nice stuff, I expecially like your life drawings, the one in charcoal and white onte is really nice! Your illustrations are also very interesting, I like the enormous amount of detail, with the elephant being my favourite. Keep doing the studies and working on your shading. For the hair I think you should render it in masses, as you have done on the one in white conte, rather than each strand of hair. I also like the fruits (in color) but I think it needs more change in value, it´s very bright. Leopard boy is great!
    Keep it up!

    DoubleThink Thanks for stopping by.
    Mumph Thanks for the reply dude, yeh I definitely need to break down hair into larger masses, gotta remember to simplify before I jump into details. And you are so right about the fruit, theres not enough dark values, makes it look unrealistic. Going to remember to really push the darks as well as the lights! Thank you!

    Hey just looked through your work, your portfolio is nice, I believe if you were to show it to employers people etc you could narrow it down to about 12 really solid pieces.
    The latest charcoal and white has a very interesting feel to it. :]
    "A drawing is not necessarily academic because it is thorough, but only because it is dead. Neither is a drawing necessarily academic because it is done in what is called a conventional style, any more than it is good because it is done in an unconventional style. The test is whether it has life and conveys genuine feeling."- Harold Speed
