    thanks for stopping by my book Ben! i really appreciate the advice you've given me! your skill is amazing dude, your sketchbook is really inspiring! Also i think i totally respect the move you made in dropping out of school for your passions. you're a smart guy who knows what's right for himself! do you have any good painting excercises for me to improve my understanding of lighting and form?

    gpozzo: thanks again dude working on that brushwork
    greenhouse:thanks so much!
    wutangclam aint nothing to fuck wit: no problem! thank you man its good to know i can inspire someone i think its the best decision ive ever made, especially cause i wouldve ended up doing some retarded shit again in school haha. for exercises to improve in lighting and form id say to study from life. try painting different materials in lighting situations and really think of the light and how it bounces off . and im pretty sure theres some good reads in the resources section about that stuff. heres a link http://crimsondaggers.com/forum/thread-3.html

    i havent posted anything in awhile, i seriously need to paint and draw more. ive been super lazy lately and i feel real guilty about it so heres some of the stuff ive been working on lately

    jaime jones study

    then applied without reference quickly. looks like it needs more saturation and controlled brushstrokes

    and now back to personal work for today
