    just a still life today...

    This is another painting study I did today. There was some interesting light and reflections in this one.

    another painting study...

    mike butkus -- Thanks for the comment. I've seen you around before so it's nice to see you've commented on my sketchbook.
    Jephyr X -- Thanks for stopping by again. I really like your anatomy studies. Glad you dig the new digital painting. I feel like some of my colors got a little muddy when I painted the pink highlight on the left side of the bottle. It was a bit difficult but the colors did look that way to me.

    Anyway, I woke up this morning and I really liked the reflection I was seeing in the spoon so I decided to paint it. It took more or less an hour. More stuff coming soon...

    great studies and progress with your art belt(s), i bow to your efforts. a suggestion for your still lifes: stronger lighting. put a spot light on it or pick a time of the day where the light is coming through the window really strong. Remember light is really what forms everything to our eyes, so creating/finding appropriate lighting makes all the difference.

    likewise to your anatomy studies, I suggest as an addition to what youre already doing, to find photos of say fighters (www.mmaphotography.com) and try to draw in their muscles as if they didnt have any skin. Its really helpful to finding realistic proportions and alsoa great excercise for getting anatomy down so you really dont have to think about it anymore. Repetition and passion will absolutely raise your art game my friend. Keep on the keep on!

    just a doodle...

    smokenmirrors -- Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. I'll def check out the website and do those exercises. They sound like a great idea.

    I just have a doodle for today. I've been doing some other drawings but I'm too lazy to post them all.

    I felt like doing a rough painting right now...

    Don't ask why but at midnight tonight I just felt like doing a painting. I have a devil duck that I've painted before but I haven't painted it with an overhead light before. Even though I was tired I just felt like painting it. Now I'm really tired and should probably go to bed. Goodnight.

    More devil duck paintings....

    Last night I painted a devil duck with strong overhead lighting. Today I painted it in a colder light. They both feel very different in forms of mood and produce different colors. I spent about an hour on both of them. More stuff coming soon. Enjoy.

    rendering my doodle from before...

    I felt like painting the doodle I made a couple of days ago. I think doing these painting and anatomy studies has started to really help me paint form without using much reference. I'm also feeling more confident with myself which I think is helping.

    another digital painting...

    I've been drawing a lot but I don't have time to always scan my drawings. This is a painting of a pic I took of NY when you get off the train from Penn Station. It's tough painting environments because there is so much around to paint. Does anyone have any advice on painting windows? Is there a quick way of doing it or do most people draw each line? I'm really not sure if I have the patience to do something like that. I know some of my lines aren't straight so that is something I have to work on. I probably spent about an hour on this. Any comments and suggestions always welcome. Thanks for looking

    The environment is looking great so far. For the windows, paint the suggestion of lights and darks. It won't be a fast process, but it will suit the current mood of the painting.
