Hot damn, look at all those eyes. Great studies Evan. You've been pushing and it's showing. Aww you should post the D3 piece anyway Maybe post it and talk about what you would have done differently, or what you would change.
@ninjac: hehe. Yeah, that was a ton of eyes. I am going to work on the d3 piece a bit more and then I will post it. I think it's important to post my uber failures as well
Here is an illustration I did last night. The assignment had to do with grouping figures and it was a huuuuge lesson for me. When I am thumbnailing, and the comp feels like it's missing something i stick more clutter in it. It never crosses my mind, that the best solution might be to simplify the piece. I know I haven't posted in awhile, but I have been cranking stuff out and I just haven't had time to scan and present all my work. I will probably have a huge post next month after the semester is out.
the drapery studies are beatifull! the ink lady, I think shes falling apart for some reason. the linework might be a bit too careful; the lines not connecting one piece to the other.

ooh yeah; did you know I'm a certified art-teacher? that's right. everything arty I say has been endorsed by the state of the Netherlands! (they'll be sorry soon)
@ashess: Thanks. I agree with the ink lady. I want to have some lost edges but there are no darkest darks. I think that is messing with the piece. Thanks for the crit! I'd love to get more
It's been awhile... haha. To say the least. I probably have 70 images to upload, but I will scan stuff in a made a post of the better work when I get back to Austin next week. For now, here are some sketches from the TAD workshop
Yes yes, I love the studies! So much improvement! I think even more face studies will pay off a lot. When you're studying something, do you also try to do it from memory, and then incorporate what you learn into work from imagination?
@Blizzard5291: Thanks for the compliment and I completely agree. Pushing my drawing from memory is something I have been planning on.
@Will McCraw: It's been a pretty crazy trip over the last few years but I have a good idea of where I want to go and how to get there. Hopefully everything should come through in the next couple of semesters as I finish up this card game. Stay tuned. I will need some help on kickstarter
@Ninjac: Thanks Josh, we are both in that final stretch. good luck mate
@metal fingers: Thanks brah. You know, just flexin' my art muscles
Hey everyone, it has been quite some time since I last updated. I update frequently on my tumblr and via instagram [evan_norman].
As for news... well TAD's first class is now just a few months away from graduating and guess what! I'm one of them. That's right, in just a few months I will be out in the wild and hunting for jobs. In the meantime, I am making a card game in the next couple of months. It doesn't have a name yet, but the working title is "Treasure Island or Hullbreach" it depends on who you speak to. The game has 100s of hours of play testing and has been in the works for four years. The first printing of the game should be ready by December or January with a kickstarter set up sometime in october or november. Keep a look out as I update this sketchbook with teases and box art, etc.
I just updated my tumblr with 29 images earlier today and here is a small excerpt. Click this link to go to my tumblr and see the other images http://evan-norman.tumblr.com/
