    Excellent work on all counts except the kid(the kid's only good). His legs/hips seem a bit off.
    I absolutely adore the first one though.

    wow. i love love LOVE your cowboy sketches... and ESPECIALLY the second cowboy painting posted... the first one i feel like needs a rest area for my eye, its a little too busy. you should try to carry the same feel from your artworks into your poster... i feel like that would make it more dynamic...because the poster seems plain compaired to your other stuff...it seems like you had more fun with the other stuff too

    ancient pig- thanks if you have any westerns to recomend please do the more cowboys in my life the better...

    Moysturfurmer-thankyou the kiddo was freelance for a client that wanted something slightly cartoonish and bright...hence the hip displacement and gen "off" feel to form and lighting, but yeah his hip don't really exsist

    inulg-thanks, yeah he is pretty busy... lately i have been trying to get a feel of how far i can take a piece. The poster was freelance so what the client asked for client received.

    poster for client, water color, acrylic and illustrator on text only

    poster was originally painted in 11by17 inch format for printing purposes,

    sketches

    Dont take thsi the wrong way, but what tecnique did
    you used for this one:

    4web%20copy

    It looks like a mixture of lowres photos and painting, and I DO like the
    result you got; still I would like to know how did ya asambled this image
    together.

    The main problem I see in your figures, is that you seem not to
    like drawing eyes, yout tend to just shade that are of the face
    off using the cast shadow of the forehead, I sugesst you do more
    studie only of eyes, and how they go placed into the skull, eyes can
    bring more life to the expresions of you caracters.

    Other that that I am REALLY ejoying your thread, keep Us updated!!

    Wasp Cowboys_indians_and_peguins?(3/16/05)

    max -hey no worries i use photos lots of them when messing around with an idea and not sure where to start especially when it comes to an enviorment and when i want to get it out quick like when at work ...I am heavily inspired by criagmullens as of late as well as dermo...Hmm the technique..kinda goes as follows:

    -find some rad ref photo's
    -take favorite parts of photo's
    -blow them up shrink them whatever..making 1 low opacity layer in photoshop
    -paint in line work
    -work in areas of more phototexture and paint into it as little much as time or patience allows


    I use this "technique"...if you can even call it that... to save my butt from forgetting what a mood was like or an idea that i had..whatever i need to get down the idea of a piece and if i like it i'll come back to it
    this one though i liked the obviouse photo's/montage kinda a collage... instead of using acrylics and magazines, i'm using photoshop and corbis


    but thanks for the questions and crit it's great to get some true feed back...and i'll hop to some eyeball studies probably in pencil and get those up asap


    on phone w/mum sketches:
    cowboys on the brain

    These are some great pieces here. I really like the Geronimo looking guy. I love all Western themed art since it was such a great looking time period. You had natural (horses, Indians, and just the wilderness of the West) clashing with industrial (railroads and the beginnings of modern conveniences). If you are lucky enough to get it, watch the Western channel. If you subscribe to any Encore movie channels, you should be able to get it. It always has some good movies and shows on. "Gunsmoke", and "Alias Smith and Jones" are some good ones that come on there daily. Also, I think "Gunsmoke" also comes on TV Land. "Rawhide" comes on Saturdays I think on the Hallmark Channel. "Deadwood" is comes on HBO and will give you a full daily dose of the "F" word As for movies...

    Dances with Wolves (A MUST! It has to be one of my most favorite movies of all time)
    Open Range (Slow, but has some beautiful scenery and the ending kicks ass)
    The Searchers (One of John Wayne's best movies, also beautiful scenery)
    True Gritt (Another good John Wayne movie. The little town I live in, kept getting mentioned in it too)
    The Culpepper Cattle Co. (This has to be the grittiest Western I ever seen, but it's really good. Everything looks dirty.)
    Young Guns I and II (These just kick ass)
    Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (Was set at the turn of the century. It gives you the look of not just the Wild West, but other areas at the time)
    Also, anything that has Sergio Leone, or Clint Eastwood attached to it is good.

    -Brad Cossey

    The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.
