    Certain they will - and damn I need to start to go to any life drawing classes - been far too long, and a pregnant model? oh sounds pretty awesome. But maybe it's mostly weird, well no, mostly intriguing I think.

    & I'm certain they will like it - and I wish you luck with the exhibition

    Whats... up...

    UNIVERSITY. FINISHED. DONE, DONE, DONE. OVER. END. OF. LINE.

    "Univeerssiity... YOU SON OF A BITCH"







    Now, time for the GOOOOD STUUFFF.
    Shit is now gonna be tight, Im gonna do more of everything, and its gonna be way more awesome. And way more fun. Lots of work, I PROMISE!
    Trust Pound!



    .... ahhhhhhhhh feels good. As you can tell, Im pumped to be free.
    I managed to squeeze in some life drawing for the last time at Uni, and the last ever session for my Life Drawing tutor Gary Long.

    He
    Fucking
    Rocks(drawing of one of my classmates)
    Hes pretty experimental with a lot of stuff, but his figurative is fucking ace and solid. Hes been doing 'acedemic' illustration for like 30 years or more, so hes allowed to be pretty 'fresh' and go a bit mental. Gonna miss him, he was one of the few good things about Uni.

    Check out his site. http://www.garylongart.com

    Bleep:
    Havent used Gouache in about a year so this was pretty interesting. It came out in about the last 20-30 minutes. It was looking shit for aaagges. I had to build up the layers of colours for a long time to get a good base. Consequently, its a bit messy and overcrowded in the open spaces, needs to be simpler in the cheeks and so on. Need to find the right colours earlier.
    + 1 drawing.

    tldr; Uni was meh, pumped to be moving on.

    Thanks Dan and Alex! Appreciate it.

    So, moving onto more interesting things slowly. Ive had my week or so of bumming off and not doing anything so. Its time to start the daily work show.

    Borrowing some cool books from my housemates with lots of mech/tech kinds of stuff and just looking at things. I wanna get more interesting in understand how things work and how you can build up interesting 3d shapes and forms and so on.

    So some Evangelion stuff, and some stuff from MGS4 too.

    Edit:

    I totttaally forgot. From Nate Simpsons blog, Project Waldo, I found this guy:
    Clement Sauve.

    You owe to yourself
    and to him,
    to look through his stuff.
    He recently passed away, so rest in peace buddy. Your work has given me some pretty big inspiration right now.

    Peace.

    holy crap i haven't stopped here for a while

    first of all, congrats!

    second, WOW that was a load of cool people you met on your trip, envious!
    hope you managed to steal some art skillz, the boost of inspiration is definately visible in your new stuff.

    The finished pieces are all very very very impressive, and i really enjoy your sketches, it actually looks like proper studying i don't know if they look so clean because you draw them slowly and with attention, or if its because you clean them up a lot, but you should give some faster, more gestural drawing a try sometimes, since one of the few minor things i could suggest is some of your characters feel a little stiff.
    On that subject, do check out "Drawn to life" by Walt Stanchfield of "Force: Dynamic Life Drawing for animators" by Michael Mattesi.They're both really good books on the subjects that might be useful.

    Still, just a suggestion, it seems to me you're doing a bit too well on your own for my taste

    ciao!

    Thanks so much Ryan, I really appreciate encouragement like this, makes me think I'm the right track with things. Lets hope I am!

    Its weird, I dont clean up my work much at all. I've always been a neat and tidy person and it realy comes out it my work. I just work quite tidily by default. It has pros and cons. I do work suprisingly quick/efficiently though even being very neat, I've always gone for the first line is the right line approach. I do, do messy, though sometimes. Somehow though its always still kind of clean and considered.
    And I have the Drawn to Life books, they are really awesome. I should probably invest more time into doing some proper experiments and stuff from it.

    Thanks again though dude.

    And some techy mechy robot stuff.
    Im finding that although I can draw tech stuff, I REALLY cant 'think' about it properly. I fudge my designs and working too much in the drawing. Just skip drawings and so on.
    Hopefully gonna do more stuff like that, so I can do lots of working objects and have a large variety of them. Its like my options for doing joints consists of like 3 options or something...

    Heres some mechy inspiration for you guys.
    Probably the best trailer/CG/designs for stuff Ive seen ages. I fucking love this video.
    Will probably be ripping it off soon, my work is gonna be including LOTS of vulcan cannons and gattling guns.

    Ive been away for almost two months. No excuses other than I needed a break and well.. real life happened and I got a full-time job. The way that I know you are going to go far Andy? Because after two months away I just browsed the last few pages of your sketchbook and I'm pumped to get drawing again! Your trip sounds incredible too. Keep on doing what you're doing and I'm looking forward to what you produce now you've finished uni

    ...oh. eer. well. maybe it hasnt been THAT long...*whistles*

    Snobby FREEEEEDDOOOOOOOMMMMMMM... yeah its awesome. TY.

    f1x Thank youuuu!

    Dan Its always a sad day when someone awesome passes away. Time for us to pick up the torch! Thanks as always

    Nickey Hmmm... if I had the time I would definitely think about it. I have some other fanart I coulda do for some friends. But then, yes! definitely. Cheers too.

    Steve Thanks? Where abouts are you from then?

    n1frit Thanks a bunch!

    Tom Well, its not all bad. A full time job is hard to come by these days, hope its something fun and enjoyable. Thanks for the kind words, I always appreciate your confidence. Thanks very much. I feel like Ive taken a long time off too recently so its time to start working hard again!

    So Ive been bumming about a bit. But my legit excuse is ive been home for about a week of that where I couldnt do much. Had manual labor work to do (thanks dad), friends to see and so on. But now Im back. Ive got a lot planned, hopefully I can get into the working mode again. I really dont want to let it drop.

    Also, I know its silly saying here, since your all the competition!!! BUT I'm totally free for commision work and freelance and so on. So pass me on to people if you know anything. Or get into contact with me

    Mostly had time to do some sketches and so on. Hopefully gonna do some more focused stuff. I really wanna do lots of mechanical studies and then drawings and then paintings...

    blah blah blah - the stuff:

    Your mech stuff is rad. You've inspired me to try some robots. I also salute your use of brush pen -- I can't manage those things.

    Hey Andy thanks so much for commenting on my sketchbook. It's taken me quite a while to look through all of yours and I've really had a good time doing it. It's great to see such passion and progress and I love all the links to your latest inspirational artists.

    My only crit to improve your finished paintings is that sometimes it's not always clear what the focal point is. I felt there was three in the post by sourgasm #762. I think this is because the foreground, mid and background all have the same tone and edges, which sometimes makes the paintings look a little flat. I did a little paint over on one I liked, hope you don't mind.

    P.S. I really like the way you've designed your website.

    Oren90 Thanks mang!
    eightball Hes such an amazing guy, super humble and just absurdly 'normal'. maybe youll meet him one day. Thanks too, appreciate it
    kdiegert Thanks and good stuff - Theres not enough mechs and robots in the world!
    Metal Fingers Thanks bro!
    Marian Thanks very much! Good shout, I like the way you pulled out a focus. Its something that more and more people have been saying to me recently. A lot of my work lacks focus. Cheers.
    Mactire Thanks buddy!
    Mussy A Brummy eh? Thanks, and ofc Ill drop in to give you some crits. Mat04art Thank you very much

    I really do appreciate all your comments guys. Thanks.

    Just working on doing some studies and trying to build up my visual knowledge of things. Doing techy stuff.
    I got a big book full of diagrams/photos/illustrations of tanks/planes/ships/guns and shit. Its amazing, it was cheap and falling apart but its ace. Expect more military type studies and so on!

    EDIT - I forgot! I TOTALLY GOT PIMPED ON THE OTOMOBLR tumblr. HEREEEEEE. This is way awesome. Hopefully people will actually end up coming to my blog or commenting on my shit. I could do with the publicity these days so someone can offer me a job.
    Also, if I havent mentioned it. The Otomo tmblr thing is awesome. Its like the moebius tumblr, expect its all about otomo.

    PS - watch my blog and tell all your friends about it kthx.

    Pew pew:
