    My Way of Getting Through the Day

    I need to overcome my fears of showing this stuff, so here i am making a sketchbook here on CA I've been lurking around here for some time now, and as i am now finally forcing myself to tackle my worst demons, i feel that i should confront my worst, and by that i mean, putting it out there to get crits and any advice that can help...no man is an island

    this first post will just have the little thumbnail thingy, and then i will post my current sketchbook, up too now as well as any digital study stuff i have.


    Thanks in advance for stopping by and taking your time to look through this crap pile as i struggle to become a decent artist

    Wow, really top notch still life's. I've got to get in the habit of doing those. It's interesting; I think your painting skills really trump your pencil sketches, at least thus far, which isn't typically what you find. It's usually the other way around. I think that's pretty cool. You've got a natural talent for being an awesome painter, congratulations!

    Awesome stuff to look at. I'll be checking this one often.

    thanks lunarsis, i think you are right on with that, i've always seen pencils as a means to get ideas out, never to fully form them so my rendering skills...even my doodling skills have fallen far behind, i hope to remedy that someday


    far from a productive day

    so, a still life speedy in photoshop, and some doodles in ink and pencil from imagination (bad idea.....bad bad idea : / ) and finally something i've never done before, a drawing from life of absolutely nothing...just whatever was around me. I have to admit, though im ashamed...it was far more difficult than i imagined.

    anyhow, as always c&c always appreciated

    Edit: having trouble getting images to show, but it seems like i can get one at a time, i will try to post others in a bit


    EDIT THE EDIT FFS. still not showing flicks...maybe im slow but the attachment manager seems to be wonky atm

    thanks for the kind words jonathan

    i've spent far too long doing graffiti, i should have moved on years ago. It was easier to quit smoking than it is to stop scribbling my name.

    anyhow trying yet again to upload pics, its been a bit now maybe it will let me now.

    hopefully the images show and i wont have to delete this post :3

    decided to test my bravery yesterday and stepped up to sketching in ink and marker instead of pencil

    i think it turned out for the best though i may be wrong

    overall some hits, some misses, some imagination, some study etc etc etc.
    NOW its time to draw, until tomorrow

    I have allowed my fears to get the best of me yet again, and let myself neglect this thread...shame on me >.>

    hopefully i can keep myself disciplined in the future and continue to post things here. this is all the stuff that i havn't hated over the past few days, some digitals and some pencils, some from pictures some from imagination

    any feedback, crits, etc, always appreciated

    thanks omerta , sad to say i dont have any other still life paintings to show, since to date those are the only ones ive attempted, i think i may sit down and knock one out tonight, no time like the present to get to work

    anyhow, not alot to post, got a couple new sketch books yesterday, and have been waging war with my arch nemesis THE BLANK PAGE, trying to fill up some pages so im not too ashamed of my sketchbook also got my scanner up and running again so no more crappy camera pictures

    some photo study, some barcsay, some bridgman....

    Your still life paintings and movie studies get better and better. But I was wondering that green mario mushroom is next to a lighter, do you keep weed in that. I do, its a good little nug container. Anyway keep posting I'm practicing the same kind of stuff, except it looks about 10x worse. Cheers!

    guh, time to get back to work, been slacking since the holidays....no more time for that

    not alot to add, just a few more quick landscape study thumbnail things. trying to get myself back into the swing of things, however this does mark the first time i didnt default back to graffiti after a break to get working again. it isnt a huge step forward but its definatly in the right direction (or so i hope)
