    Hey Thanks Dude! Gotta work on my animation, its pretty weak as it stands right now.

    Got a chance to plug in an hour on the Frazetta Study....I really hate being a perfectionist, I think it drags my work down sometimes.

    Nice work over here !
    I'm really enjoying your graphite based works, they are fluid and pretty to look at.

    Hi matey

    Dont worry about the perfectionist side of your personality mate, trust me its paying dividends for you. the Frazetta thing is brilliant, I rather think that frank himself would be impressed, though he would ask why you are not painting one from your own head. According to what I've read he was big on encouraging folks to do their own thing.

    anyway like the book mate keep it coming I like your work, and thanks for posting.

    I have seen now some pages of your sketchbook and I need to say it is cool! I like especially your characterdesigns. You have a really strong style in them and they're full of expression.
    And I'm jealous of your pencil drawings! The way you do shadows and lines is just so wonderful. Full of dynamic
    But I kind of miss this things a bit in the digital paintings. Maybe it's the colour choice, but I can not feel so much life there as in the pencil drawing. But that happens to many people. Seems like simple things can catch life better sometimes

    Willy - Thanks man! Im guessing you're talking about my life drawings! They're not graphite, its all in black conté.


    Lightship - Thanks a ton for the encouragement! My peer mentor, San (who will no doubt soon be mentioned with the Greats in animation design) suggested I try doing the Frazetta study based on my work from the Heron painting...he noted how Frazetta used soft and hard edges to fade the figures into the environment and then separate the significant parts... so I did the pencil one day and I figured Id understand it all better if I painted it, and I really do. I admit its almost time to move on. Thanks for stopping by once more!

    Valyavande - THanks for the compliments on what Im guessing are my figure drawings, again they're done with Conté on newsprint. I agree that some of my paintings lose some of the spark of life, its definitely something Im working on. I find that the paintings in which I do on the spot turn out better than the ones I plan.... Anyway thanks for stopping by!

    Hand Studies: Robin Mitchell's random characters and Hogarth....I usually do these as warm-ups before I begin work for the day as hands are one of my weaknesses. I spend around 15 mins per page.

    Hi matey

    Have you noticed the form and abstraction thing going on in frazetta work too, loads of detail where the focus is and it tails off where you dont really need it, you just get basic shapes or hints.

    Thats one the many things I always get wrong I tend to litter the place with detail and it ends up cluttered and wrong.

    Anyway the reason I popped by was to suggest another fraxetta one for you to have a go at, namely "The Egyptian Queen".
    Its a great one because as you study it you realise that the use of light in it is amazing, he uses it to re-enforce the 3D effect with it. I reckon you could pull it off mate, go on challenge yourself some more.......please


    all the best to you mate and i love the sketchbook.

    Lightship tthanks for dropping by again man! The revisits are so much appreciated! The Egyptian Queen was def one of the ones I was looking at doing in the first place, such a master piece. Right now I'm starting to storyboard a film and I have a childrens book and a video game on the way so another Frazetta study isnt in the immediate future but I will keep what you said in mind, so thanks!

    Knut- I actually have been doing TONS of enviro's but unfortunately im under an NDA so I cant post any....but once my contract ends ill get back to doing my own...thanks for dropping by again dude!
