    Cheerio's Box of Sketches

    I've been lurking for a while, but I figure it's about time I started my own sketchbook here.

    I'm entering Junior year in Illustration at university and am trying to kick it into high gear with art. So any honest/harsh criticism is welcome.

    Thanks for visiting!

    Wow I love how you use color and texture. Especially with the gummy worms and other candies.They look so good and almost real with the right amount of shinyness and how they are placed.

    Jellyswirl: thanks!

    Here are some sketches from the most recent figure drawing session I went to. All short pose, around 5-15 minutes.

    Long time no update! Anyway, I want to get back on track with updating regularly, so hopefully this will be the start of that. I'll just post a few of the "highlights" from the past few months. As usual, honest feedback and criticism is always welcome

    Cheerio, you've got some awesome stuff going on here so far! The paintings are great, intriguing, and I love the variety of styles you are comfortable with. The lifedrawings are beautiful, too - very nice values! The painting with the chocolates and gummy worms made me go "eww!" for a second, because I almost thought they were actual worms! Then I realized they were gummy worms. lol!

    I think a lot of these pieces have tons of character, expression, and mood. Which is critical for an illustrator. Keep it up!

    As for criticism, one thing I noticed is that the anatomy on the little farmer boy seems a little weak...also, he doesn't look like he's actually on the ground. But, the mood of the piece as a whole is great. I love all the buffalo looking at him!

    RedOwl: thanks for the encouraging words and thoughtful criticism! I agree with your feedback and will keep it in mind for future work.

    Thought I would post some of the stuff I do at my "day job." I make illustrations for independent study courses for high school and college students. These are a few recent ones from a course on European history.
