I like your environment thumbnails, I think you should take one and turn it into a painting.
and I absolutely love the cartoons, they're so good! the lines and movement, really well done.
TomDeVis - I don't know if I should discourage that behavior.... for me school was always put aside to draw and my teachers and parents always discouraged me. Eventually I went to a school where all we did was draw and it became my job.
Funny thing is, now my nephew and niece love to draw (so not my fault.....) My sister doesn't discourage them one bit . score 1 point for us!
RBeek - I live by that! The subway is the best place to find all kinds of people. You get everyone from 3 piece suits to sketchy hobos, hipsters, fashonistas, slovenly fat folks and here in Toronto, every ethnicity and ethnic combo you can name. - I love it. It's like sketch book candy!
dracken- Thanks . I don't have a story to go with that...
Voodoo_Mama - Thanks for all that - I havn't done a real background painting since background painting class.... sounds like a challenge. I'll put it on the todo list
onto the update - I've been lax on posting because I went and got myself married last weekend
All back to normal now though so here's a sketch dump done with my trusty bic . I should get some more finishedy typed things up now that I'm not busy with wedding things.
thanks Valoo and ElPollo so many studies - so little time >.<
I think I avoid still lifes because at work I draw bazillions of props. Guns, paint cans, cutlery, food, more food... so much food.... by the end of the day all I want to do are goofy faces lol. I'll have to get over that.
Anyways here's a little change of pace, not much but subway sketches lately, a rough sketch of a background. - Clean up and painting are in the to-do pile.
