    Thanks for stopping by mentler.


    Today for my paint class we had a model come in dressed up. He was dressed as a zombie cowboy. And we had western music play. It was a rather interesting experience, and I feel that these are some of my best sketches. 10 and 15 minute poses.

    nice shit, those last cowboys kick ass. You've really been putting out a ton of work lately and youre getting loads better because of it.

    One crit I have for most of your pencils, is that I think you really need to get in there and add some super dark areas, or even just a dark shilloutte to make the lighter areas pop out. Just dig in with that pencil

    Nice work, man! I really dig the paintsketches and the pencils looks cool. Some of them could use a little level adjustment after being scanned - have you tried playing around with them in PS?

    I like all of the various skull sketches and the quick painted figure studies are very, very nice. There's a lot of stuff going on in some of those and others have a ghostly apect to them.

    Hey, I love those quick paint sketches. Your pencils and your digital are great too but the oils is what really caught me, the zombie cowboy is awesome! Got not much to crit but I got a question. Maybe you already answered this and I just didn't see it, but how do you paint with oils on paper without grounding it? Won't the paint eat through? I wanna do these kinda quick oils too but thought I'd have to buy panel or canvas and that's a little too expensive... Also, what kind of medium do you use and how much of it to keep the oils from smearing when you turn the page?

    Mr_S_14-thanks. thats an old one, charcoal pencils and grey conte paper i believe.

    madplanet-thanks!

    Immortal-Thank! typical strathmore sketchbook and oil paints, mostly rembrant and davinci.

    gaijin-Thanks! heres some more!

    Hunter610- thanks!

    Dile- thanks!

    Boogieman- Thanks. When I first took the painting class too, I was confused to oil on paper too and I asked my teacher. The paper actually obsorbs the oil in the paint, so they actually dry faster, I painted and scanned these today, they are alittle wet still, but scannable. As for a binder, these sketches definately arent archival (atleast I dont think so)and I myself am curious as to see what will happen to them as time goes on. But since they are sketches its ok, its great practice for getting used to oil and mixing and all of that and not being to careful about your piece, treat it like a sketch. I dont always use medium, depends on how oily the paint is, the davinci, some of those tubes squirt out more oil than I like usually, but works great for not adding meduim. But when I do use meduim for these, its usually 50 refined linseed and 50 gamsol, some are done with straight linseed for added meduim, some done with straight gamsol for meduim, and some no meduim. When I do use meduim for sure is if I feel i dont have enough paint on my brush and I need to push some more pigment around. I never douse my paint in too much medium, atleast not anymore, some of the ealier black and white quick paints have too much meduim and look more like ink. And now to the smearing, since the paper soaks up alot of the oil, they dont smear like you would think. I normally though when I am done with a page I turn it, but I let it hang lose and not close my sketchbook shut, paint will pick up on the back side of the paper infront of it. Some other students in the class close there book and it picks up more paint, but I dont usually think its enough to ruin the image. Also for paper alternitives, you can try water color paper or even illustration board or matte board if it isnt too much money, I know some people have tried that in class instead of the sketchbooks, they get a big piece of board and paint them all on it, hard part is being consistent enough with size to fit them all on. Ok I hope that helps

    pix-uk-Thanks. Some of the skulls are inspired by the artist in the Anatomy for Artist book.

    ok heres the update. Some frazetta studies in goauche, oil quicks, 3 10s, a 20, and a 30. And some other stuff.















    character for class I am working on.



    The background for the character, I am really jumping out of the comfort zone with this one, a completely new process for me, curious to see how it ends up.

    Great character man! Only little crit might be that the darks could be pushed harder, but maybe that was caused by scanning....
