    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.

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!
