    These ponies have a lot to learn. SKETCHGASM

    ALRIGHT I grew the balls to start a CA sketchbook. Critiques and comments are welcome. I couldn't manage the financial crap to get into school this quarter and I must MUST MUST improve.
    I've only been painting for a year. D: But I love it. I've also just started experimenting with the wonderful world of digital painting. Hooray! Except I lost access to Painter recently. Things. will be done. about that.

    Anyhoo, guess we'll start with some paintings and a recent sketchbook page or two. The first two and the fourth were done in school a good three months ago at least. The sizes vary. A lot.
    Too lazy and tipsy to bust out the gesture drawings/paintings/assorted still life stuff. D:

    Anyways, I'll post more tomorrow (including my silly digital experiments) after I leave comments on other folks' sketchbooks since nobody likes a douchebag.

    Derp. Did a quick PS self-portrait that I have yet to figure out how to overlay properly and also a 4x6" oil painting I need to work on some more for a silly local show. I might need to bring that pinky in a bit?

    Thanks, xbert.

    I went on a trip, so all I have right now are some sketchbook pages. Back on the ball today, though!

    thnx for passin
    damn your paintings are nice, but your sketches seem to lack a bit, practice your lineflow a bit, you seem to be skating a bit with your pencil.

    Thanks, Grafguy. I've always had a problem with that. Combination of impatience and shakey-as-fuck hands I guess. I'll work on it for sure.

    Here are some mostly unfinished things. Also a thing a friend and I dicked around with on my wall. The big painting of the chick in the wedding dress is from a few months ago. I set her aside and I regret it. Just don't feel like going back, you know?

    thanks so much for the kind words in SB!

    can't believe i've missed over your SB, I luv the style and most of all oil paints which is really refreshing to see in this digital world we reside in! Bummer about the school thing but it looks like you have all the arsenals just need to keep refining, the first fishy painting is sick, how long did that take you? Any tips for beginner oil painter??

    glad you grew the cojones to start a sketchbook and look forward to seeing your art grow!

    I'm really enjoying the way you use color- vibrant yet still somehow mellow and relaxing. It's like looking at a beautiful newborn baby made out of skittles. Your proportions seem to be all over the place at times tho. Specifically, you seem to have an issue with arms. Good luck with all that school stuff. You should update more, lol.
    And here's my sketchbook. Help me out with some c&c?
