    Your studies are fantastic - a real encouragement for me to do like 50 more each go as opposed to just 3-4. Anyway, Bridgeman is easily one of my favorite modern masters so to speak. Anyway, heaps of work to do! Keep yours coming - I like the scary, Vaudevillian harlequins etc. They're really quite spooky.

    wow, what an awesome sketchbook. You have hands down better them most I've seen. I think your "Cetaphin" is amazing by the way, that creature is bad ass

    I'm back!!

    Alright guys I'm back, sorry its been to long. Needed to take a break from the sketchbook section and focus on trying to develop myself further. I've learned a lot and am still learning and growing. I'm almost done with school and I have to decide on what I want to do next. My goal is to stay in SF and work. I really want to continue learning and attend the concept art atelier. That school will push me like no other. But I have to figure out how to make it work.

    Here are some environment studies mostly that I did a little bit ago. Need to do a ton more of these.







    Jakers: Thanks for keeping the sketchbook alive sir.

    InvertedChalupa: Hey man, it was great seeing what you've been working on lately. That personal piece involving the shotgun. Damn that left me speechless. Your really on a level most want to be at. You deserve to be there because you put in the hard work man. Amazing amazing work sir. Thanks for sharing yesterday.

    ~Faust~ : Trying Faust. Thanks for taking the time and checking out my stuff. Trying to grow How are things going on your end these days? I hope all is well.

    Exquisite Beast: Thanks for checking it out.


    Benjamen Christ: Whats going on Benjamen, good to see you at the Dallas workshop also bro. I hope things are better for you out in Hawaii. Keep working hard man.

    Moftah: Thanks

    Yautja892 : My apologizes for not updating for awhile. I'm back now and hopefully for good.

    Arteater: Thanks mate, I will be developing creatures that are much better than the cetaphin!!

    Kaffinated: Cool man, good luck with that academy. I'm on the way out and have mix feelings about the school. But I guess you get out how much you put into it, something like that. I feel large institutions are becoming obsolete in the way the professional world is advancing. The gap is widening between the professional world and large institutions in my opinion. I could go on and on.

    Taneli: Thanks bro, I've stopped rendering for awhile to try to get my forms and gesture more solid. Still have a ways to go.

    ~Faust~: Don't worry I'm back, Thanks for the support man, means a lot


    Jakers: STill alive and cooking bro, I think I'm going to keep this sketchbook alive so that people can see the road I've traveled. Thanks for staying interested in my book bro!!

    Benjamen Christ: posting now!! I think you've seen this stuff at the workshop.

    PeNcIl ReBeLlIoN : Thank you very much.

    More stuff

    Daniel C: Hey man, great chatting with you at the workshop also. Its been great seeing your growth. You definitely have the work ethic down. Really dig your work man and I hope things are well. Cheers.

    More stuff to update, I've been working with Wes Burt for awhile on mostly character design. basically anything I take to him he destroys and makes a zillion times better. Its the best way to stay humble. Working with an individual who is as skilled as him really pushes me to work harder.

    These two characters are apart of my thesis project. My project focuses on a small band of soldiers, old men and boys fighting to defend the present against an uncertain future. My story focuses on the fall the Third Reich from the German perspective near Berlin.

    The awesome mountain enviro - is there a fancy trick to speed up the drawing of all those little cracks, value and hueshifts? Or is it just going in and doing it by hand? How long did it take?

    Sargent studies

    DanielC: Thanks man, yeah I agree I feel some detail elements is lacking, I will keep that in mind on my future characters. Thanks looking.

    Diphallia Thanks its been awhile since I've touched clay, going to have to stop in the sculpture building and do some sculpture sketches.

    paran0id This was one of my first mountain paintings so I painted everything by hand. I mostly stayed zoomed out at about 25%. I zoomed in at 100 to clean up the cracks I suggested when zoomed out. So no special brushes this time around. There are many ways of doing this also. I hope this helps.

    Last few days I've spent my energy focusing on doing a few Sargent studies. I spent on average about 2 to 3 hours on each one. It was good to take a break from my usual and focus on some old Sargent master paintings for a time. experimented with some custom brushes I created. I will be regularly including these in my work flow. Thanks for viewing.

Spend even more time at these studies Darron.. watch the brush strokes and try to stay critical and concentrated with your observations.

http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...hmentid=689306

i think this has the best brush economy. Simplified yet so informative.. the forehead looks a little flat with that hard edge.. but maybe that's just me..
good planes !

i also enjoy the edges most in that one =) ( the sharpest edge is the hairline though hehe )

keep it up man.. you've always kicked ass with your portraits mate

    The pencil moves a bit.

    towy: Thank you towy, I will have more to come.

    Dile_: Thanks D man, yeah I really should spend longer on the studies, but I feel like with each one I reached a point where I felt I wasn't changing much to make the studies stronger, so I called them done. Thanks for the crits and feedback. I'll be falling your sb, thats for sure.

    MacTire: Thanks Mac

    D@niel: Thank you, really digging your work, love your palette and brush execution. Your work is definitely an inspiration.

    Thanks for everyone who has viewed my little book. Digital painting, but recently spent a bit of time working with the pencil. Reinforcing my understanding of freatures of the face and structure of the head. trying to cement head structure in my brain. Some good heads many wonky heads.
    More stuff coming soon.

    lovely studies, and nice hard work man.

    within your paintings, i think you could stand to work on materials...some of the pictures (like the gunner and the bazooka guy) look like everything is the same material. the leather bag looks like the same material as the bazooka, as the jacket, as the pants. this is partially due to your transition in values for each of the materials, so do some studies, see how they work, and make adjustments for how the different materials transition form and value. you're really improving man, so keep it up. expecting great things.

    Hi, sorry it took so long for me to get to your sketchbook. Very nice stuff, and I'm enjoying your paintings. The studies made me smile...whole pages of eyes and noses looks a bit unsettling at first glance.

    It was good meeting you at Reverie!
