    Good color theory on the first painting, Looks pist, the color makes him look very angry. Can't say much right now, you do not have a whole lot up. Keep posting!

    Can I have some of the drugs you're on?

    But seriously, very imaginative... once you get some good anatomy and perspective studies under your belt you'll be unstoppable!!!

    I really like your first 9-10 sketches. I like the line work. I also like those trippy paintings. Very awesome and good likeness on Kathy Bates.

    These images are in no particular order. Ive been getting in the habit of carrying around a pocket sized sketchbook and doing 5-10 second gesture drawings of people animals and architecture. The last image is of an assignment for my drawing class where we had to draw a life sized gesture drawing of ourselves then alter it.

    im gonna give you a critique like i like it! hope i dont hurt you XD
    the amount is okay, proportions actually, too, but the stuff needs mor structure. you already practice that, but do more studies! more loomis, more brigdman, more bammes or whatever use reference on your stuff from head if necessary! the hand eg. looks kinda strange (the wrinkles and stuff) and the coat of that soldier isnt convincing either.
    STUDY and keep goin

    Frittzell, welcome to CA. I'm glad you viewed my sketchbook and appreciate the comment. I'm almost overwhelmed by your first post! Thats a lot of drawings and interesting art. I must say I really enjoy your pen drawings of all the abstract and interesting textures. And way to go on all the sketchbook pages... you got a good bit down. I've been doing nothing but studies and life sketches. I'm even starting to do some decent memory concepts and come up with some new stuff. I dont know if you know about posemaniacs but that place is great for gesture drawing. Keep it up, You've gove a great potential. Imagine what we will do in 3 years if we keep draiwng like this? i see you draw from life too in many of your sketch pages, that is super. It helps ALOT. I'm excited man, keep in touch. Pce

    The surrrealism in your drawings/painting is flipping awsome man, it's like an acid trip without the negative side effects. Keep at it, your anatomy studies are going really well.

    There are no negative side effects in an acid trip IMO

    Frittzell, great work on all the posemaniacs. It is an awesome website. It
    helps me to observe better when I'm out sketching real people.
