    Guys I dunno how to explain it but all of you people have inspired the hell out of me.. all I can think about is how bad I want to open my mind up to new possibilities and keep challenging myself to work at this. The workshop was so incredible its all I've been able to think about really. I've been doing a lot of exercises and stuff and then trying to ask myself some bigger questions - I feel like I'm gettin lucky most of the time - I dont want to stop drawing because I'm afraid I'll lose the ability or something. Thanks everyone for all of the encouragement!!

    Capprotti- YOO Mike. Dude was great staying with you man! Thanks so much, hit me up on AIM if you can and we can OC - I am usually up pretty late so thats a good time for me.

    Joe - Yea me too dude. You were right to say that we'd be seeing each other again a few months ago. Thanks to you and cody for giving me that little taste of Austin! Hope your new gig goes well!

    Pat - Great meeting you too dude! Yea man we gotsta hit up sometime. I'll call you/call me or something.

    Some more Paintchat stuff, somehow got stuck on this shaman idea.. need to work on these hands

    nice stuff you have here.

    one thing, make sure your hair line follows the rest of the features when your doing different views of the head. because in most of the ones that are not face forward, the forehead is way too big.

    ok then.

    MisterJc - Thanks man! Good spot on that, I hadnt ever noticed but you're absolutely right, I'll have to watch out for that.

    Hanging out over at Niko's paintchat quite a bit -

    I've been doing these figure exercises for the past couple days - they are somewhat Mentler/Hogarth inspired - think I am going to keep at them and hopefully get a better handle on foreshortening and also start injecting more anatomy study into them. Lot of the poses are from watching some gymnastic videos, but just watching them, then making some drawings with their influence.

    MisterJC - Thanks dude!

    Here's another of those, and a SP and still life I did for figure drawing class.. I think next week we actually gonna start drawing figures or learning about them. The still life is cropped a bit at the top because I didn't feel like scanning this huge page 6 times but if anyone's got some good crits on it please hook me up, cuz I have another to do for homework.

    holy shit , that self portrait is awesome. very nice work. dont be afraid of those eyes, look at them a bit more when you re drawing. eyes are just condensed forms.
    sorry for not being around when you were chillin. (work sucks) maybe we can do a bit more drawing and a little less "me getting fucked up" next time. i'll give you a call when i m in the area.

    The Teenie Weenies!!!

    Intense SP really like it ____ assume you are using mech pencil _____ line quality is more difficult with some media but it is always extremely important _____ try putting a harder surface between the pages of your sketchbook _____ like a very thin piece of mylar or plastic!!!

    The teenie weenies are great _____ it is a great way to do lots and lots of little studies <><><><><><> it really forces you to look for variety and points out the how important movement is in a pose.

    One of the traps a great many artist fall into is working only with what they see_____ unfortunately life does not stand still and if you really want to put life in your drawings it has to come from you! That is way it is so important to be able to capture the movement in a short post and be able to finish it without the model anyplace and anytime!

    Photos are not the same, even though many artist rely on them____an experienced artist come spot a rendering from a photo instantly_____

    Keep doing the teenie weenies with and without reference to expand your understanding of movement and simplified figure structure ____ it will pay off big time_____try to do some with the same pose from a lot of different viewpoints~~~~~~ it will stretch your brain a little

    Zebz - Thanks dude! Yea these figures are a lot of fun, took me a few days to get into them .. I think the biggest thing that I picked up out of the workshop was to let loose and keep it loose.. tighten up in the key spots. That and flex kind of set me off with the idea of posing with skeletal landmarks. I will be dropping by again.

    Flex - Yo thanks man! The portrait was kind of rushed mentally.. I need to get bolder quicker and get my value relationships correctly in there much faster.. its still really kind of grey. But I'm glad you guys like it, I will watch out for those eyes next time. And it was cool chillin with ya man we can do more than just be artists all the time right?

    Mentler - Thanks! Man you always just drop the kind of posts I have to read 5 times over. Yeah I started it off with a mechanical and had to finish it up with a good old fashioned pencil because I ran out of lead. Good suggestion I will have to do that next time I work out of my pad.. I think when I work this big I'm gonna just need rip the paper out and use a board. Also thanks for your tips on the teenie weenies I will start incorporating some more reference and try the multi-viewpoints thing also.. I noticed that when you draw this small it really forced me to pick up on the whole idea of rhythms.. use what you can to communicate because there is not much space.

    Well I got a challenge with Canuckwithapencil for the US vs World thunderdome - topic is "A world of all times" - basically a world that has no boundaries between any histories/fantasies/futures.. heres some thumbs just trying to feel out the idea.
