    Cliff's crap (for now......)

    Hello all. I am an artist who just recently started taking himself seriously well not himself but rather his art. I hope to never take myself all that seriously. Most of my work recently has focused on high-end caricature but I am seeking to expand my horizons. To that end I seek knowledge wherever I can find it. That is what led me here.

    It is my intention to post regularly here and take part in the site as much as I am able.


    To start this sketchbook off here are a couple of caricature speedpaintings:

    nice caricatures always liked caricature never been any good at doing them
    uhm a little bit of advice, it´s a bit hard to tell with this few paintings but you seem to drop them rather fast. would be nice to see some a bit more finished
    keep it up

    Thanks for looking DK. I do have some more finished work.

    These faster ones are because I am trying to discipline myself to get the basics down without worrying about detail at all. I have a bad habit of getting lost in detail. This way I can't if I want to finish before the buzzer. I still want to make sure I can capture the likeness which I feel is paramount.

    I am also trying to push my exaggeration a bit and the longer I work on a piece it tends to move closer to portraiture.

    Here is a Stern I am in the middle of as well as some sketches of my hand I just did. For finished pieces, I invite you to check out my website for I don't have many uploaded to my profile here at present.

    You're off to a great start, really dig the caricatures and your recent hand study is very impressive. Keep it going!

    Did some warm up sketches. These are the result of messing around withSketchbook Pro's symmetry feature.

    nice updates. You are mixing it up well
    something i have learned from my still life studies is to stay away from the soft brush as much as possible especially with hard surface object´s, other than that it´s looking good.
    Keep it up

    Thanks for looking DK.

    Didn't get much drawing done today. Tomorrow I am planning on a couple of still-lifes as well as some skull studies. For now here is a SBP sketch:

    I have a busy day planned. A couple of still-lifes, a speed paint or two, working on laying out a children's book that I am illustrating (and co-authored), and a skull study (from photo ref found via Bing image search).

    The skull study is well on it's way here is the wip:
