hey chris! good to have you on here. looks good, let's see some more sketches! git it!

HELLO CHRIS! Glad yer finally here! I'm digging that raccoon.... I don't think remember that one... is it new?
Are they still doing those model sessions at pollack?
Oh, I'll be in town for like, an hour tommorrow, won't be able to hang out (have to go to susie's dancing thing) but will be thinking of you, cotron, doom, and the gang. Have a good one dude!
Like cody said; more more more!! We'll get you addicted to this through peer pressure!

let's make a dino viking!?
I shouldn't even really post this because the painting was kind of horrible and the sculpture isn't too thrilling because it is just a try at creating my first standing figure. If it works though i am sure that the next one will be as dynamic as a cascading style sheet! I guess i will keep who ever checks it out posted. Stay tuned to see if i can make it work.
This is the original sketch, which really isn't all that great. I should have taken more time and actually found some reference pics.
This painting was kind of rushed and not really done with great reference. I plan on redoing it someday to make a more moody version of it. Possibly with some disembodied heads laying around.
This is just a bit of the sculpture i am working on. Blankslate and cotron know and probably think that i should be done with this by now. I have to actually make the arms and other apendages seperately because i am still learning how to deal with making a real good armature. I also don't plan on getting into putting in the details until all major parts of the body are present and proportional.

So why do i post stuff?
Well, it is nice that there is a great community on-line and all that actually shares work and comments on art, but why am i here posting if i really don't get any crits. I know i have only been on this site for a week , but eh. I guess i will keep posting until people say stuff.
Here is a digital painting that i am still working on. Pretty much working on it every day after i get off from work. My plan is that i will paint digitally for 2 hours a day after i get off work.
There is actually an image of the earlier painting of this towards the top. I think i am deciding on going with the second image which is darker and trying to work my way up in values again. It seemed like the image was getting kind of too close on value.
I love drawing women, and giving them eye patches!
this was just a quick painting i did on card board, i just scanned it in and blocked out the color in the back in photoshop. I think it will become a posssible sculpture sometime soon.
here is some other junk. Trying to get used to using the wacom
well, that is all for now.

nice work chris, i actually like that green guy painting the most of all this stuff, something about it is really strong.
as for eyepatch girl.... kill bill inspired?
as for posts, don't sweat it. Keep at it, people will stop in eventually. Try and post at least once or twice as day on the forums, if not in your sketchbook, than on other people's, or in lounge, or anywhere for that matter.
Get some more from life drawing on there, suckah.
August 2nd, 2004 #11
oh, im glad that the sculpture is finally gaining limbs as well. they look a little long in the upperarm... (elbows I think should line up with the ab area..?)
I like the second, darker robot too. keep at it dude!

it's helpful to render to the forms with a mechanical pencil. what i mean is dont just crosshatch whichever way, but think about the contour and the rings that a cylinder has. think of the body as shapes. I know insane visions does this and his shit is awesome.

ok, so i will go do some drawings of humans for a while.
I love my wacom tablet and have pretty much been working with it everyday for about two hours after i get from work. I have been working on painting this robot and I think i messed it up and might have to go back on working on it. I kind of just want to call the robot quits and work on something else for a while. (drawing real people)
Thanks for the advice on looking at insanes work, and thanks for the advice on cross hatching.

uh, here is some stuff
these drawings look kind of crummy but i will take them in photoshop and up the levels later. i am just posting before the woman of whom i used t o call women comes over to take me away.
These figure drawings are all about 5 minute sketches and were done in ball point pen. they are off, but that is ok beause next time i will have my drawing face on!
she is here, got to go.

Hey Chris, I just wanted to say that I love that robot!
And now that I've seen the different stages of progress it's been through, I can see that all those dings and knicks you put on his torso in the final version really give it some personality.
I know you said that you're sick of that picture, but if you could tighten up some of the wreckage in the bottom corners I think you'd have a really killer piece here.
Keep up the good work man!
