The Art of Craig A. Hamilton: Check it out!
My name is Craig. I was referred here by a friend, who is both an illustration major and my roommate here at College for Creative Studies."
It's been a while since I've been here, looking to get back in the groove. Sift through the work, now that I have a scanner. Sketches, WIPs, IDWs, and any other creative projects I have going.
Please stay tuned

Clodioz || lol thanks, this site has me in this relentless process of photodocumenting and posting. Another set tomorrow from another sketchbook...keep in mind that i am a auto design major...lol, i just have this illustrative mind that i kinda hate myself for (its a traitor art to my field...sorry, no offense to you guys. LOVE CA!)
delmar || no, i wish.
Man, some of you guys here are insane with that. I plan on trying some digital rendering soon, maybe Christmas time when I go back to Miami, back to my job where i can get a discount on a Wacom Bamboo. idk, its something i really want to do but simultaneously don't because i was trained old school.
The following project was to create a human powered machine, similar to the impact of bicycles and rollerblades...I created the Kinetica as the mechanical spirit of walking and the human motion of running. It uses a compound magnet array in each of the wheels, amplifying the motions of a user's walking strut, thus effectively amplifying nature. in the sketches, i work out in detail what exactly im drawing and figuring out.

here's more from Kinetica, the human powered machine concept for Oakley...
a la bapsi || thanks for the comment. did you graff, reffering to the post-ups comment?
Envisor || thanks so much, yea, i was looking at your sb, and it was real nice. i'll return the favor and subscribe too. ^_^. You go to CCAD? i was going to go there, but i am going to CCS for auto design, which is a stronger program here...
jedininjaman || yea, good times in high school. Of course my h.s was vastly different than any other in the U.S, but it was fun. Take a look at the site for DASH, my h.s...

great sketchbook, rely like yours sketchs, and kinetika are great idea as i understand this is something like exoskelet on wheels . nice concept, keep it up .

Joce || no problem, thats why we all are here, to contribute both experience and our understanding of art, subjectively. I felt that commenting on your work was going to do as much for you as posting to this site was to do for me, help my skills improve with oversight and creative constructive criticism. This helps everyone who wants to get better in any artform, for me and my profession, is an essential utility we both emphasize and champion because it filters out good ideas from the great ideas and develops great ideas into revolutionary...
here's more from Kinetica, with that reply, and for any other response i make on here, will accompany with more work. I'm working harder than ever to supply more work for display especially the IDW #74- Asteroid Miner, which i have big plans for...stay tuned to that...

I developed further from concept to refinement, detailing two distinct version of the Kinetica concept. The Hima concept model was to be a urban, streetable version made to not only move around in urban enviroments, but enable the user to stunt and trick with the unit, allowing a greater range of physical expression. This lent itself to me, since I skate (aggressive inline), i wanted to push the concept to the subculture of extreme sports. The unit seems to play well with the idea of huge airs, grinds, and the overall stance of the unit gave a very rebellious "funk" if you will to the very intelligent feel of what direction the Kinetica was taking.
Here's panel 12-13.

hey man thank you very much for your comment! and wow nice range of vocabulary! You know its quite funny actually, before you commented on my sketchbook i was on yours, i looked at all your stuff, bookmarked your sketchbook to write on it later and i even answered the poll, which i thought was a good idea so i made one myself all this before you commented i was pretty shocked to see you happened to fall on mine, felt like you were watching me haha. I really love your sketches especially the elephant one and the sketchbook scan with the yellow watercolor. Very amazing and inspirational stuff all throughout And i really like the mixture of agony and his state of confusion in the face of your shooting soldier, the only thing that might somewhat improve your sketches, not that they really need too much improvement; is some shading to add volume to it just like you did with the elephant and soldier. However it is not necessary for all your pieces. Thank you again for your great critique

5scoop || Thanks for the commentary, especially in the level of detail in your response. I appreciate you subscribing to my sb, expect a wide range of my skills and concepts to be posted in the near future. I really took to that piece as a substatinally thought provoking, more plausably classic artistic subject matter, apart from illustration. It was a great composition.
One note about my work, the self portrait piece of self reflection, in yellow, is actually acrylic washes layered over gesso treated pages, which the entire book was soaked in water for several days, left to dry, then repeated twice, leaving behind a textured treatment on the paper and the fibers stretched. My methodical process of sketchbook composition begins in deciding the ultimate concentration on what I aim to study for the sketchbook, which is dually noted in its title. I am partial to the destruction of paper, only to work on it again, pushing the medium into the paper material and developing the "soul" of the sketchbook as the artwork itself.
Well, as I promised, more Kinetica panels...
Panels 14-15 describes the evolution of the Kinetica over the course of 10-15 years to a race model. The Kaze concept model, designed for high speed running features taller, slimmer tires with more powerful drive magnets. The runner is treated as a Formula One race car, treated with a steel alloy silkscreen application to their bodies and etched with team graphics and colors. The runner takes to a linear course, that runs over a given distance, like a stage race, through over various terrain. The runners, due to the effieciency of the unit and the magnetic amplification of the operation of the Kinetica, the races are held over hundreds of miles of landscape on hybrid asphalt trackts that weave in and out of the landscape's terrain and the racers speed about at speeds over 80 miles an hour.

I'm really loving your sketchworks. I love how chaotic and organized your two page sketchbooks can be. I also love the kids with guns set, I'm a big gorillaz fan and it's awesome to see some of the style translate into something else, the effect is really pleasurable.
I've just gotta subscribe, it's ticklish for my brain.
Freak out, Peace out
