    strych9ine's steamy pile

    What's up everyone, thought I'd give a sketch thread a try. I realized in Austin that if I'm ever going to get anywhere I have to get off of my lazy ass and do something about it, so that's what I'm doing. It was a pleasure meeting all of you in Austin...

    So here's some old and new stuff for you. I'd love to hear any C&C you all have for me...

    wow cody. it was awesome meeting you in Texas. You've definitely got something good going on here. Your anatomy is real solid. I think some head studies would do you good, your heads aren't as good as the awesome bodies. You're right, you gotta get off your lazy ass and draw! Now lets see it!
    I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.

    i love you painting they have an abstract energy to them kind of like compostion it the substance of the painting and it is shown through value
    i think you have taken the right step by choosing to work on your fundemental drawing skills because while your paintings and painting style is very attractive it lacks to solid understructure
    i have had this problem for a while also so i orced myself out of coverup mode by not allowing myself to shade or paint for a while and just working entirely in line
    the first image the stomache doesn't come out enough the arm is short and the geomtry is a kind of off and the light source is conflicting with itself and the mouth looks little unintensionally assymetrical in the fact the circle is off center the same for the belt i think these problems will be fixed if get a better idea of where the center line for the stomache is
    try to study more porportions and anatomy as well as stress correct drawing of 3d objects from imagination
    get something in the room draw it from an angle differnt from which your viewing it ffrom the chech to see it you correctly drew that object it will help you greatly
    you have really nice painting skills but you can't hide behind them stick with the fundamentals for a while
    peace and such

    Nice work Cody. If I could draw figures like you do, I'd be a happy bunny. My only crit is I think your colour work is a bit monotone. I think these peices would have much more impact if you introduced some variation in the palette. There's a nice Phil Hale quality about them. Other than that, it's all good stuff.

    My man Cody! Good to see you start a sketchbook here. Had a blast hanging out in Austin btw. On to the art, this is some really cool stuff, especially the first painting. Great textures on all your paintings. As for crits, on the first one (and a couple others) the part where the forearm connects to the hand looks a little weird (I just noticed cuz I suck at drawing hands and it's something I'm working on right now). Keep posting dude!

    what's up doppleganger, nice to see you start a book...

    my only crit would be to do more lifedrawing, while your drawings are cool here, they could be helped by a dose of reality, just going out to the mall and sketching people as they eat or something... it helps out so much because you catch nuances and little things that you would never find in your head.

    oh yeah! keep posting! I wanna see where you take this, it'll be interesting

    Got a couple for you... a Barscay anatomy study and a big ass freak.

    jetpack42: Thanks man, it was cool meeting you too dude. I'm trying to nail my anatomy by doing studies and then sketching without reference. I'll be working more on heads a lot more in the next weeks to come.

    the good war: Yeah, I noticed a lot of those things too. I seriously need to be more critical of my work instead of focusing on unimportant details. Thanks for the crit...

    Summer Pudding: Color scares the shit out of me. I'll definitely be doing a lot more color pieces... I'll even post them up if you can all deal with flipping through that horseshit until I get comfortable with it.

    Groover McNab: Austin was the shit, plain and simple... it was cool meeting you bro. That whole arm in that piece is messed up but I'm working on arms and hands right now, thanks for stopping by dude.

    xia: Rock!

    cotron: You, sir, fucking rock... it was cool hanging out with you in Austin. I have been kind of lazy about life drawing but you're right, I do need to go out and sketch from life more often. Thanks for pointing out my faults, asshole. I hope you feel better about yourself now. :bootyshak

    behemot5: I made a ton of custom brush sets in PS from ink splots, thumbprints, and random strokes that I made. I usually paint texture upon texture, use a lot of overlays of other textures I painted, and sometimes use little pieces of photographs set to blending modes.

    Be back in a couple days...
