    "Create like a god, command like a king, and work like a slave"

    Check the last page for the most recent stuff.

    I'm a 29 year old musician living in Seattle WA. Just looking to progress my understanding of art and illustration for my own personal enjoyment.

    Much love and respect to all here! This is, hands down, one of the best communities on the web!

    Hey man. Welcome to Ca!

    Cool use of texture in those balls be sure to not forgot the cast shadow underneath the balls. Now they're kinda lacking that. And you also wanna make sure you're not gonna show us but those balls. Upload some more stuff. Dunno characters and the like or environments.

    Keep 'em coming.

    Thanks for the feedback jordy. For sure on the cast shadows, I won't be forgetting those from now on. I will be posting actual sketches/figures/etc soon, I just wanted to start slow and work on some basic fundies for a month or so; I am not sure how long I can do just value balls so I am sure I will be posting something else soon! Thanks again.

    Another sphere exercise. I can't figure out the proper method of diagnosing the proper intensity of color to match an appropriate grayscale value...any tips?

    Also, I found myself a paper sketch pad that I am going to start carrying around with me so that I can start posting some real-life doodles and exercises. *WARNING* I am terrible! But, this is all for getting better, and I hope that the feedback I receive from this fantastic community will help me get better. Thanks for looking.

    Another Value vs Intensity Study:

    This one took me an overall 15 min to do. The other studies posted took me 30+ min each, so I am making progress in my sense of fluidity with the program. I am going to start doing these once a day now, along with Idiom's next exercise. Trying to get a regiment down. I will be sketching throughout the day now in my drawing pad whenever I can, so I will soon be posting those sketches.

    Been gone awhile.

    I am going to just upload anything and everything I make from now on. Getting embarrassed about how terrible I am just makes no sense if I want to grow as an artist. From hence forth I hold nothing back.

    This update consists of an original pencil doodle. Then I tossed it into PS and "symmetrized" it. It's something I like to do (but am slowly trying to work my way away from).

    Started with a pencil sketch up. Then PSed it. Then churned it into a 54"x48" acrylic painting. (Order of pictures here is: PS, painting, ball point pen)
