    retep:

    hell yeah man--> looking good! here are a few crits on the awesome dino/reptilian dragon thing:
    a couple of minor compositional things:
    • seems like the trees that frame the composition are a little bit predictable and stylized.... Potentially they could give you a really nice art nouveau kind of framing effect, but right now that they're mirrored is really, really distracting to me.
    • the dragon aspet..looks great compositionally. I'd say leave it as is and continue to rock it.
    • the middle ground with the robe wearing guys i dunno... i wish the eye level were closer to the groiund... maybe at head level with the snakes or SLIGHTLY above... not as much perspective.
    • tuft of leaves in the lower right??? seems like a haphazard compositional element.

    k... hope that helps. thanks for the info about HHH, i wanted to call him but last time i kinda woke him up or something

    looks good mang--> somehow we gotta get together for some drawring. will be calllin you up.

    hey gugg,

    thanks for the crit man! i should be working on the piece again soon. i was actually thinking about bringing the lizard guys up to eye level a little more. yeah, those foreground leaves were really bothering me. the lizard gu up front should be enough, but i might just take him out as well. dunno.

    im in the process of getting a new number for my cell, ill give you a call as soon as i get it.

    later.

    cool man... it's just, the lizard hunchback guys have so much potential i think. really if you played them up it would intensify the overall impact of that gigantic a$$ dragon in the background. also... i was thinking that a change of perspective on that burning cauldron would help things immensely... what if in looking into this scene we could see burning embers lighting out into the congregated reptilian group? that would cast some ed wood style b-movie shadow upward lighting onto the visage of the dragon, which would be a little difficult to execute, but would be so impressive to see done right

    Yeah... give me a call. actually tonight while i was driving i called your old number and some dude answered, that didn't sound like you:
    "hey, ahh, is retep there?"
    "uhh... ok. He doesn't have this number anymore."
    "ahh... alrighty. thanks!"
    click.

    hehe

    Retep still doesn't have a cell because he is a gigantic choad-monger.

    Reactions to dragon composition: The lines of sight are all pointing to that fire, plus it's the only warm element in the comp so it becomes the focal point, but I would assume that dragon they seem to be worshipping should be the focus. Get rid of the symetrical trees and leaf that's supposed to balance the guy on the left, put another guy there instead. The guy's head peaking out at the bottom doesn't seem to be doing anything either. Do some studies of churches and temples, laying on the steps doesn't seem fitting for a dragon god. Light between trees should be toned down.

    wow peter, some really impressive stuff you are dropping here! So i put on my 3D glasses and this really jumped off of the page at me. yeah, the digital camera isn't ideal, but at least you are posting stuff.

    def the self portrait is the so-called GLEAMING ZENITH of this update. seems like the face is dead on, and the rendering is nice and thorough. one crit i'd like to make is that...maybe the background should flatten out a little more. right now the marks that you are making that circle your head are somewhat evident, which ruins the foreground + background depth thing slightly. "ruins slightly" i guess is kind of an oxymoron , i hope it's not too confounding of a criticism.

    AND --> I guess you probably got my email about the CATL Sketch Group trip to fernbank to see the imperial rome exhibit on saturday the 28th--> lemme know if you (maybe even "you guys") are down and i could stop by and pick yall up if you are sans-automobile. Should be a lot of fun, it looks like a lot of new people will be showing up, so we may even break the 20 ARTISTS mark with any luck. Then we'll start a gang and go flip some automobiles at a shopping center, just to get good under-the-car reference views. Lemme know if you're down, k? it promises to be an entire day filled with UNSANE sketching debauchery. maybe even that blue-kollared-rake-brushed-emo-haired-freak from macon will make it up. which... actually he's going to be in town this saturday and several of us are getting together... hopefully we'll all be able to draw together for a little bit

    "uhh... are you guys in some kind of class together?"

    thanks for the support gugg. i see what you mean about the foreground + background relationship, its really bothering me now. when i geTIT back ill flatten it out so its all one value, or have it a bit darker by my shoulders and fade out.
    im really disapointed i didnt get to go to any CATL meetings. this last quarter really kicked my ass, next quarter i will hopefully be more prepared and have more extra time. how did that 24-hour sketchbook hoopla go down??


    heres an illustration project, human animal mix... didnt have a scanner when i had it so i had to settle with another shyty pic.


    close up...



    i threw this website together for a project. the first website ive ever made. hopefully i can get a real portfolio site planned out and built over break. some crits would be great.

    later.

    Neat idea having the figure on the left in your portfolio...I might put a head and legs on it so that it reads instantly.

    As for other crits...depends what you want to do as an artist! Show us the best of what YOU want to do. You could put a few life drawing pieces in there to show your traditional knowledge as well.

    incredible updates lately...

    ...Great job on the figure studies... the way that you're choosing a small area of the figure to focus on is particularly impressive... are all these like 10-20 minute poses? anyways inspiring work, thanks for dropping it all here on the SB for us to see!

    the USBC06 went well... 518 pages later we felt pretty worn out but it was a great time.

    will prolly see you in january at some point.

    No more drawing reteP. You should take up a new hobby, like kissing my scrote.

    The patterns in that last drawing are completely amazing, btw!
