    life drawings-a-go-go (whatever that means) - 4/25

    I was pretty comfortable w/ my drawing style for awhile, but then steak-tron introduced me to CA and everything changed. I started drawing a lot more, tried drawing different ways, and I currently find myself experimenting w/ these different ways to draw. I want to draw more from life and reference, as opposed to imagination(as suggested countless times on these forums), and see what comes of that. The CA community rules, Austin ruled, and drawing is fun. yay.
    Here's some coro-inspired drawings of people and things in Austin. The scans are a bit dirty and bad. My proportions are wiggidy wiggidy wack and I know there's lots of room for improvement. Let me know what other things I should/could work on. I'll keep drawing.

    Hey hey hey! Welcome to the daily sketchbooks! This is where the real men (and women) hang out. I've already told you before I really like your inks, your hatching style is great, especially when applied to my gut :mad:

    Thanks for the avatar too!

    do u know the meaning of useless strokes? I think not, cuz for real, you have no useless lines in your work at all. It's like, once you lay the line down its the perfect line - pretty damn admirable, man. it shows mad skills.

    also, i gotta say that you seemed to capture the likeness of a lot of these people pretty well. like that doodle of metaphysiks on page 4 - looks just like how i remember him. another thing i admire is the sheer number of doodles you've made - how quick did you spend on each one?

    anyways, your ink skills are badass - how bout posting some of your pencil or paint or digital work? And how bout posting a piece you spent a little more time on?

    I WANT TO SEE MORE DAMMIT.

    oh, and btw

    YEA! Triumphant beginning to the awesome-ness that is el-Lucien's sketchbook! I love everypage man, even more so in person. Not only are the likeness dead on but I love the intensity of the table objects, the hotel rooms, and the hatching. You started with an object and created an incredibly engaging scene of controlled lines. Leaven me thirsty for more... and i'm not the only one. Lookout, your a hopless posting addict now like the rest of us (i hope).

    Hope all is well in the ATL (unintended rhyme). drop me a line some time man, well go sketching or some sheeeitt, maybe reunite some of the dirty south CA posse. (one the streets yo.)

    I had a great time hanging with you in Austin Roy, glad you came along (how would i have gotten through the airport?)

    one question... wheres the shrimp of burden?! you had the whole room rolling.
    -steak

    -and to everyone else, this man is hard-core, he drew non-stop every day o' the workshop!
