    = february 25 = (big update)

    hey guys,
    havent posted anything or updated my site in a reeeeeeeally long time...im in the process of compiling all my new work into digital format right now so i can entirely update my site.
    so tonight i scanned a bunch of pages from my sketchbook....i still have another 30 or 40 more pages to scan in, plus about 75 self portraits that ive been doing daily (thanks for all the inspiration android)
    and then i have tons of stuff that wont fit on the scanner so that will all come soon...

    Glad you've found the time to post. Nice work on the faces and characterization. Any of these becoming paintings?

    Pardon Me..While I go Die...

    Seriously Wes. You have something great there. I'd like to know where you are going to be directing your work towards. I would assume you are caught in between Fine Arts and Illustration to pay the rent.

    I would love to see a very crisp/tight finished piece.

    I can't wait to get my new stuff up. I should have my knew site in Dec.

    oooooooooooh

    beautiful. (damn, you already know you rock, so i wont repeat it one more time)

    wes, you seem to work at quite a large size. do you have some pointers for a small-drawing moron who wants to adjust to drawing larger (=me)?

    thanks guys

    jmascho- heh thanks man. yeah as soon as i get some digital picture of paintings ill post them

    stephen- heyyy man, yeah im finishing up school in may...maybe ill end up in LA i dont know yet. ill be out there at some point sooner or later

    deth jester- thanks man

    joshuathejames- hey thanks man, yeah i tend to work more on my fine art stuff and do freelance concept work on the side and this sort of stuff in my sketchbook. more finished work? yeah its coming, as soon as i get some photographs of it all...keep in mind this is just my sketchbook

    jaku- thanks, and yes, unless otherwise stated, everything is drawn from my head or from life. there are only a few that have stuff done from ref

    gasmask, rudecorleone,sammy- thanks guys

    ericdee- heheh thanks, i dont even drink coffee though

    roger, danvd- thanks

    gekitsu- well all of these posted so far are right out of my sketchbook which is 8.5" x 11"..letter size. i guess for working on large scale drawings though, the best advice i have is to just tackle it and start working away at whatever youre doing. it might take a while for something to form, but dont give up. try using charcoal or paint or something that you can cover large areas quickly or broadly and then refine from there. also dont get caught up ion little details at first.

    fipse, landmate, endregan, donkeyslayer- thanks guys

    lungbug- hey man, thanks, your sketchbook thread is looking great, hope to see some more

    capt. harlock- heh yeah he does look a bit like ron jeremy. oh yeah those two star wars guys are actually from a picture of me and my friend on halloween a couple weeks ago. im wearing a c3po helmet and a button up shirt and black tie. my buddy doan was wearing a nien nunb mask heh.

    metalwinds- thanks man, those two drawings of the girl were probably around half an hour to an hour each..? im not sure...she posed for a while for each
