    Hi Ben, a little humility might not be a bad thing .
    The paintings are technically impressive for 17, but you probably want to move away from paintovers (I know it's hard without a tablet).
    Stick around here, you'll learn a lot (this is a good place to start). Good luck at SCAD.

    ugh, well, I have to admit I highlighted the link and saw it was a blog and not the generic spam site, so I clicked it.

    Your paintings look so good they almost like like photographs that have been "borrowed" and then smudge-tooled! wooooo. I just noticed none of your edges seem very crisp/hard, i'd work on that. You'd think after 3 months that would be a rather large thing to overlook...

    I'm assuming you either painted directly over/traced, or very, very, very accurately used a grid system. Either way, like Elwell said, you would do well to move away from that. Tracing is one thing, drawing is another. If you don't have a tablet, break out the good old pencil and paper.

    And, yes, humility will go a long way on this site. While, if you did paint these, they are technically good, they are still paintovers, and fall well short of "amazing". That said, best of luck at SCAD and welcome to CA. =)

    I don't see the harm is using a grid system, unless it's the ONLY way you can work. If you can't draw a face without gridding out a picture and doing that, then you have a problem. If you're gridding out just for fun, I say why not. Do not use it as a shortcut though. It will prevent you from learning the basic essentials such as proportion, and shape, and you will not learn anything about Negative space, which, ask anyone, is very important.

    The hairdresser-logo looks good, the (supposed) paintovers are techically solid aswell.

    Try to cut down on the self-praise though... and have a look around here, this place is great

    Have anything non-digital to share? It took no time at all to find the source photo you used for the T.I. portrait, as well as your MySpace page, which includes more work that looks similarly suspicious. (Ah Google ) It's not that it's impossible for someone to paint very photo-realistically, but some non-digital art to show your talent would be nice.

    "I'm also very into art (and really f***ing good at it)"

    How modest of you.

    But best of luck with SCAD, although I don't think they teach humility there.

The contest was full of amateur designers who stole logos from stock websites and I had to point this out several times to the contest holder. When the contest ended, it took the CH five days to decide between me and another entry but I ended up winning in the end and that's all that matters.

I lol'ed.


what everyone else have said... welcome to CA : ) teach me smudge tool plz.

    wow im jealous of your mad skillz, do you have and tutorials on using ps filters because wow i dont know any 17 year olds who could take a photo into ps and apply some filters and smudge it a little (in 3 months?)

    the only amazing thing about this tread is your own self delusion, good luck finding reality in the future.
    its time to knuckle down and really lick boot!

    BTW, we shouldnt be too hard on him, although age does not warrant everything hes only 17 after all and he doesnt seem really aware of how obnoxious his attitude comes off.

    PS: Another reason to stop dogpiling.
