    HELLO!

    Hello All!
    After the months and months of being inspired by all this website has to offer, Ive finally decided to share my progress as an artist with whoever cares to look! I havent really created an internet presence until now at the tender age of 23. I have a tumblr (conjavart.tumblr.com), and a blogger (http://conradjavart.blogspot.com/), and NOW I'VE finally mustered up the courage to post anything and everything that I do. I really express how much the artists on this site have inspired me and influenced my art. I hope to experience the GIANT jump that I see in my favorite artists pages. Fundamentals, fundamentals. It doesn't get more fun than that PEOPLE! I'm really outgoing and hope communicate with EVERYONE here! I'D REALLY appreciate input and criticism. I will be posting my progress from the past year in the world of DIGITAL AND TRADITIONAL painting. PLEASE PLEASE comment and ENJOY! can't wait to hear from you all!

    conrad,OUT.





    HERE's my first paintings that I could find in my really unorganized library.......ENJOY! i use photoshop cs5 and im OBSESSED with digitally painting and watercolor! I tend to do a ton of short and really quick studies. Here's a few of the earliest ones.

    The first study is of my gf. VERY FUN. next is of an apple. (DERRR) . This tree study was an awesome breakthrough for me, everything was about SPEED PAINTING~SPEEEED PAINTING! everyone does it! lol. this was my first attempt at it. about 20 minutes. the last post is of my living room

    Since I had a Derp moment (Like I always do.) I actually made two threads. SOOO.. I will be reposting those studies here along with a few more! watercolor and digital! the digital pieces are about 30minutes to an hour study.
    The watercolors were done in class, about two class periods (2.5 hour sessions). I LOVE watercolor.

    So, the uploading engine played a trick on me and 6 or 7 pics didn't go up 4 hours ago...WEEEEEEIRD. but NE HOOT. I've finally fixed my signature, added my buddy ADAM NOWAK and now I will continue with the posts of progress!!!! YESSSSSSS!

    The first posts are of classmates in my digital illustration class.
    the next few are just other various studies.
    The little goblin character is one of my first digital characters named VICTOR RADD. a small goblin with some alien TECH. he's actually very small in stature and uses the suit as his vessel for fighting and transportation.
    The last piece is another classmate from school, farting into an explosion. (OH YEAH...I said it).

    MOAR MOAR MOAR.
    1. The idea for this project was to shoot your own reference and to try to make your designated "food" to seem appealing and unappealing in two different illustrations. I had the difficult task of making ICE CREAM look not yummy...very hard indeed (that's what she said).

    2. This was my "yummy" attempt at the ice creeaaam
    3. elephant study on my comp
    4. A really quick 20 sketch of clayface from BATMAN
    5-LAST. So, the next project was to recreate a literary figure and give him/her your own spin. The character had to be humanoid and so I chose Dr. Frankenstein's "MONSTER". The next few pieces are process shots and final renderings. SOO MUCH fun. I hope I did the big guy proud.

    SOooo, I've been trying some digital life drawing lately. IT'S UBER FUN. for anyone who hasn't tried it before, I strongly encourage you too, it's quite interesting. I got what I wanted in the first 1.5 hours, but Adam Nowak encouraged me to push it further and BOY, was I happy he did. Cheers.

    That last portait really is fantastic; definitely worth the extra effort. Overall your drawings from life are really strong, but I'd like to see more imaginative works as well. Judging by the frankenstein monster, I think you could further develop your intuitive sense of anatomy.

    Soo. My last response was SPAMMED and so it didn't show up and was DELETED. sucks. but OOO WELL.

    Overworlder: Thanks for your input! I agree with you. I believe that I should show some more imaginative pieces. Doing al of these studies I hoping that I will be able to improve my imaginative skills 10fold. hopefully SOON! =)

    p sage: Thanks for the nice comments. I also have been studying some loomis. He's graaaand isn't he? ALSO. All of the pieces leading up to the last portrait are super old...SOO i'm hoping the "jump" that you speak of is very much there! or else that would mean I suck at getting better! ya dig?

    Adam Nowak: Thanks for pushing me bro. Let the adventure continue!!!

    bish0p2004: Thanks for the comment! I'm really digging your sketchbook as well! We seem to be doing very simliar sketches! nice self portraits.

    Here are a few updates:

    1. here's a body study, i wanted to try and improve my rendering skills and address this whole tattoo thing!
    2. Here's a study of a watercolor painting with the supposed "watercolor" brush....ehh. it was ok to me
    3. Screenshot of Casanova Frankenstein.
