These paintings are fucking awesome. The one with the kids' expressions are especially cool. Great gestures as well.
And the part about how you never graduate exercise is spot on. I always feel that way myself. Keep on!

Pixel--thank you, will do!
Aaron--Argh! I was hoping it WAS wrong. What a tiring world! But it's too much fun to get mad at, I suppose.
Rastary--Thanks a bunch! Post more, huh..? if you insist..!
Quick update with lots and lots of heads today!
I've near given up finding a local clay supplier and a kiln, so I downloaded sculptris. Here's my first two heads, each about two-three hours. I don't think my computer can handle sculpting hair. .__. Still, very very fun, will be doing more. No ref - I probably should be using some. Please crit these!
Plus two b&w head paintings,
aaand two more ink heads, playing with how to render different things.
Thanks much for looking, leave some c&c!

Great update. Lots of good heads here. My crit would be that the edges may need more definition? It seems the paintings could really use some hard edges around.
On the woman, her neck is way too think and too long. And maybe soften the edge near the top of the hairline(generally it's a pretty smooth transition) and harden the edges of the jawline?
Those ink drawings are really fun BTW>

Been playing with sketch techniques in Photoshop lately. fun stuff.
Also a wip for a queen friend's birthday card~ :P
I'm in the middle of moving (I'll be moving 4 times in the next month! gaaah!) so I haven't had as much art time lately.
Oh yeah! I got a tumblr! Share some love?

Your anatomy is really nice, proportion wise and all. Though the eyes seem a little off. Maybe too big? And I dont know if you are going for this look but the last figure the WIP. I believe you named it chimuWIP - the body seems a little masculine for a female. It gives the impression of a cross dresser or a transgender.

Alex - Thanks for commenting! For those sketches, I was using an anime-inspired style. So the eyes are intentionally larger. If you think it looks wrong (I could see it venturing into uncanny-valley for those not expecting an anime influence), that's another story, but otherwise.. P: As for the "manish woman," you're completely right - it's a guy in drag. I mentioned it in the post comment.
I'm halfway through a lot of projects right now. Here's a warmup and a portrait...

Hey, nice sketchbook you have here. You've improved quite a bit since the first page and I like the various studies you have. Are your still lifes from life or photos? The self portrait is very nice as well.
Also, thank you for checking out my sketchbook. Looking at your renderings, I can see what you mean about the white highlights. I'll work on that.

Long time no see, you've certainly been busy, alot of images in this sketchbook are a proof. I like your gentleness in the pieces yous how us, but i've noticed that you are atracted to blurry soft/lost edges lately. Be careful as it's easy to veruse them. In the matter of fact controling soft edges is a very tough subject. Check on Leyndecker a famous american illustrator. He had soft/smoth transitions contrasting with crisp sharp shapes. In my opinion he was a true master in that field.

Still lifes are from life.
Yeah, still struggling to get a feel for hard/soft edges. I'm always too far one direction! -sigh- Thanks for recommending Leyendecker!
Sorry for the lack of updates - I just spent 3 weeks locked away at an oil painting class at MIAD. 7 hours of painting every day (plus after class painting) and 3 more hours of figure drawing! And lots of sketching outside that; I went through 6 100-page sketchbooks. So, it was a fantastic time. I learned a lot about oil paint, of course, but also a ton about composition and color gestalts.
Here's some of the work I did at MIAD--I'll be posting it slowly over the next week or two. I've also got a lot of digital paintings and stuff to catch you guys up on!
