    aww bro, you did not just do that.. did you? OH FUCK YOU DID O_O
    the portraits are sooo beautiful bro! that sculptures looking superb bro. superb.

    p.s. @kidult: sketchbooks are for unfinished work, gamerhomie posts his sketchbooks and his overal process of everything in here, who are you to tell him to post what you want to see? look at other guys sketchbooks for concept art, what gamerhomie's doing is awesome and it is a sketchbook. he's also a full time art student so he obviously doesnt have time to do concept art/doesnt want to do concept art, and it's not only about skills it's also about time bro.

    Could have sworn this website was called conceptart.org? my bad.....really dig the last piece don't get me wrong you have skills but somehow I get a bit bored with just seeing work from observation. Check the guys from the next gen atelier, now that is some sick observation skill aaaand some serious concept work.

    Wow Adam how glad am I that you commented in my SB! Yours has been like reading a best seller that I just couldn't put down. Truly brilliant and so inspiring. Have to say that you make me want to draw, paint and sculpt. Your passion and hard work really shows in all your work and I can see just how much you have grown and improved since your first post. I genuinely feel very excited for you and where your art will take you. Like all good best sellers you have left me wanting more.

    Nice work as usual. You ever do open studio sessions at the P&C?

    Kidult, this is the sketchbooks section. Anything goes here.

    Sweet stuff in this update, your paintings are getting much stronger! I"m really liking the fourth painting, it's good a lot of great colours and it also has personality - the man feels like he's got a story, know what I mean? Don't get lazy defining edges and forms though like in the second painting of the woman. You've got lots of soft and lost edges, but there's not many hard edges to balance them out.

    As for hash-dash lines, well, I was really thinking of the figure drawings in your November 23 update, but I went back and looked at them again, and I realized you were probably just trying to sketch nice and loose. All the more finished stuff like those two girls in the last post have nice and smooth lines. So, not a huge thing, but something to keep in mind I guess.
    I'm liking the cast, it's turning out nicely. How did you go about giving it that weathered look?
    Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions, your answers were very helpful.
    Don't stop!

    magicpudding - Thank you, I appreciate it.

    ryanoir - I only hope there to be more. Always more.

    Loathsome - Thanks.

    kidult - Hey man, I didn't get a chance last time to reply since I was so tired. I totally agree with you about only showing observational work. I remember when I first turned on my computer about 6 or 7 years ago and I typed in "art" into Google to see what I could find. That night I eventually found a place called conceptart.org and curiously clicked on it. I had read about "conceptual art" before and thought it was going to be a website full of installation art and the deep meanings behind our everyday thoughts and all that. Well to be frank, I was SOOOO BLOWNN AWAY with what I saw. I clicked on my first thread and saw a digital painting (I didn't even know what a digital painting was, I haven't even seen a real painting) of either an orc or samurai, or a combo of both. I made up my mind that night that no matter what, art is what I needed to do for the rest of my life. No matter what happened, or what kind of jobs I would have to work to get there, one day. So for so long I was caught up in the site but I knew after research that in order to be as good as the greats here I needed to understand the fundamentals of art. That led to traditional art, which led to representational art and since then I've grown a huge love for it. I'd still live to do more digital, more illustrative pieces. I love that stuff as well. In fact when I started this thread I had it in the Fine Arts section for months before requesting it to be brought here. That stuff that's coming from the NGA and all those new places popping up, well, it's an exciting time to be an artist. It's really astonishing the amount of great work there is out there. Truly mindblowing. Right now I'm hooked on this stuff. So who knows where I will end up. That's why it's a journey for me.

    Marian Rowling - Thank you so much. Anyone can do it, they just have to destroy their social life.

    Jason Scanlon - Oh yeah man, definitely. I try to come as often as I can. right now with school I (really try, but sometimes I wake up late) go every Sunday and sometimes during the week if I have some time.

    Lionsword - For the fourth painting I chose not to take down an exact likeness but sit down and observe him for a bit and help "push" his emotions and his little tics. He was a fellow painter who was there all day that day and it was his turn to pose for us. He really hates doing it and was constantly trying to keep himself entertained. As for the second painting, that's a failure. She came up to me afterwards and I told her I had such a hard time painting her. She asked me how many times have I painted Asians before and I told her she's one of the only ones. And she said there you go. I'm really not liking my sketchbook too much, I gotta keep experimenting with that. I just stopped by a hobby store and picked up some patina paints. It's an acrylic binder with metal shavings inside of bronze and an acid to help "age" the initial layer. I painted the recent plaque I got done with and I haven't gone over with a second pass to bring down the intense colors the patina gives off. It's kind of wild how the acid interacts with it. I only wish I could one day cast a bronze and do a real patina.

    __________________________________________________ ________

    So I don't have much right now. I just did a quick figure study, 8 x 10 with a limited palette of titanium white, yellow ochre pale, terra rosa, and ultramarine blue deep.

    A cast I previously posted, working with a patina on it.

    And I had a friend from the Palette send me some photos of his wifes pochade box and I went to work on my own. My dads friend helped me with some of the construction like thinking up the idea of the slanted clips on the top and left hand side to hold a canvas in place. I threw in a piece of glass in there, it hasn't shattered yet (crosses fingers) and it looks like it'll hold up on the tripod. Super excited about it. And as I look out my window I see we got another few inches of snow last night. I have such great timing.

    The painting of the mandolin(?) player is intriguing to me. Looks very "dreamy". Enjoying your sketchbook. Please keep posting!.

    ryanoir - Thanks, thanks.

    kidult - It's all good.

    purplegoat - Thanks, I thought the same thing!

    I know I keep posting this (last time), but I decided to get the bust against a backdrop, I thought it would look cool. But I know my P+S cameras sensor is too weak to read anything in dark colors so everything in the shadow is just pure black.

    I got to collaborate with my friend who just started to digitally paint only about two weeks ago. Just passed it on and off every hour or so.

    Got some more portraits done. I took some photos of one of them doing it stroke by stroke and not touching it again unless I overlap strokes. I also forgot to take a photo or two before the end so there's a big jump.

    Finished that figure I mentioned a few weeks back. Half scale full figure in clay. I'd like to cast it just for fun but it'd be so much trouble since all I have ready right now is plaster so I'll probably dice it up next week.

    I also did a portrait for my friends mom. Did it in one session, around 7-8 hours. First time I painted from a photograph so it was interesting on how to take it on. The most trouble was the water so I went to look up Mr. Sorolla for some inspiration.

    Hope everyone's having a good time/relaxing/making art/celebrating or if you're working during the holidays. I feel you.
