hey guys and gals! remember me? im that guy who used to post pretty steadily around here. as of the past few months, i have found myself up to my ears in work, which is a good thing in the fact that i am able to eat, but the unwanted side effect to this is that i havent had as much time to just play in the studio. i do squeeze them in here and there, and this is a dump of all kinds of random things from the past few months. at foster's request i am going to post a buncha crap all random, and in no particular order. jonny boy, this is for you man....
here is some graphic design stuff insane visions and i tag teamed a few months back for fun
a sketch of a bar...
a still life of an onion and garlic
a page of ps car sketches..
doodling in pen with noxizmad...
my beagles, katsu and ponzu sleeping, done from life, and an indian done from my head...
a 36x48 oil on canvas of a boy atop a monster...
a recent paintiing i did for marko...
my girlfriends head, 48x72 oil and acrylic on canvas
and a closeup:
some figure drawing stuff from the sf workshop
some random pencil stuff...
sumi brush and a white out pen...
more of the same:
sketching at a diner one night with wes...
a few bitches...
a still life of an old vice my father gave me...
playing with some vine charcoal
a crappy self portrait i never finished
so there ya go. now back to my cave to draw for the next 6 months -c36
much needed inspiration. thanks man.
This is gonna get spammed with people bowing at your feet... I might as well be one of them. Great work man.
The first few you posted were my favorite. Guess I just love the texture work you did. Fantastic stuff. The Girlfriend painting was crazy as well. How long that take you?
Very gifted indeed.
hell yeah! if that's only the tip, my bung is quaking in fear of the rest of your ramrod... wait, what?
great to see the experimentation, the one you did for marko is my favorite I think, along with the girlies in yellow... the patterns you're incorporating are great. reminds me a lot of mark english, but it's got your own "street flava" in it too. thanks for posting, lots o' motivation here.
Good God man, you have too much skill for your own good.
I think I will give up drawing and painting now.
This post was worth the wait. Many thanks for sharing these.
i think the portrait of your gf is my fave, great pallette and a real feeling of life to that. this post has something of everything, and i respect your versatility.
if i was to crit anything (since it's crit week and everything!), it's that your figures and poses could be more fluid or expressive sometimes. for example, the 'sumibitches' page lacks the expressiveness that you captured so well in the 'nekkid' page. haha, how can i keep a straight face with filenames like that?
you know i love your stuff, so take that with a grain of salt.
dame i love em all. looks like your really getting the hang of your cars.
the portrait of Meliassa is nutts. i cant believe the amount of detail in it.
im really digging that vine carcoal drawing too.
thanks for posting these. its always awesome to see ya posting some artwork.
you say that portrait of your girlfriend is both oil and acrylic?
could you explain more?
as i understand it, you can go oil over acrylic but not the other way 'round. is that the case here?
Hey dog. . . . did you see the size of that chicken?!
Your versatility is just astounding, man. I love the transition from a still life of garlic and onion (love the glow on that onion), to the page full of cars. And even on that page full of cars there's a lot of versatility. Quite a few of them still smack of your street influences, but then there's that top left one...pure sci-fi concepty goodness. And then that oil of Melissa...that's just crazy man. Seriously crazy. I wish I could see that in person...the change of focus from the neck and the color choice really makes it look like she's emerging from the painting, a lot like that hand on that Assael(sp?) painting at the workshop. Just gorgeous. Oh, and those sumi/whiteout dancers are a riot!
Glad you found time to share these with us!

hey, great work! I love the graphic design stuff up top. Reminds me of Modrion - one of my favorite artists to study!
The edge control and focus on the portrait of your girlfriend is nice. Your stuff keeps getting better.
Thanks for being my art director.
Thanks for being my teacher.
Thanks for painting that godfrigging awesome painting for me.
Thanks for being my friend.
Thanks for being a vital part of my life.
Love ya bro!
Very cool work!
That painting of the red haired woman is fuxing creepy. Its like this shadowy ghost figure staring at me. im scared shitless
Goddamn man... your oil paintings are just... I mean jesus... I have no words.
rock on man. thanks for turning up the heat on the rest of us. it looks like you're drawing inspiration from a wide variety of master artists and creating a nice mix, greater than the sum of its parts.
thanks for also responding to foster's request in less than 24 hours!
nothing to say, except "beautiful!"
i particularly like the bitches sketch, the sumi-e breakdancer, and of course your girls portrait. i see a lot of different influences here... where did you study?

That's right boy.... take the dump....
The one thing I haven't really seen from you is the pencil rendering...and *bam* you a drop some...those beagles are awesome...
And my fav is the vine charcoal piece...solid as hell...
like you wrote the other day...."I just made poo poo all over myself."
truly worth the wait! beautiful stuff....hehe...vampire coro.
So good to see you post again. The piece you did of your girlfriend's head is fucking mindblowing, just so damn realistic and beautiful.
Great stuff coro! The portraits are beautiful, great realism. I think you should finish the one of yourself it looks good, a lot of character.
The cars are badass.
your art makes my nipples swell up like fucking...swelly shit.
god i love you
i needed that. thanks coro. the portrait of your gf is so nice.
true awesomness !!!!! spechless , you one of the guys who most of us look up to , i just have 1 question (pretty stupid one ) how much did it took you to get portret of you gf done ? cause on what i see from the closeups it looks like not hours but days and days of work.
