    Hey dude, I really like a lot of your stuff.

    This most recent finish though, still feels a little unresolved for me. A lot of the marks in the background read more as flat sketched in color and any real depth or atmosphere. I also feel like having the same range of warm-to-cool on the figure as on the background flattens it a little. I can appreciate that the figure is reflecting the light of her surroundings, but i wonder if you can do that while making the figure more cool and the BG more warm, or vice versa. I dunno, something to consider, but I know sometimes i feel like when I'm done, I'm done, and I just hafta move it along.

    So, how is that Illustration Masterclass?? I really would like to go, possibly as soon as next summer, and I'd love to get an honest opinion on the program! How many students attended this summer? Is everyone attending top-of-game up-and-coming talent? Worth the tuition?

    See you around man.

    hey man, the robin hood piece for the master class turned out great, did you work on it any more after the workshop? Dont know if you remember me but i was the one sitting in front of all the greg manchess paintings and sitting in the comfy chair. I agree with McLean that the background isnt resolved enough and it just looks unfinnished. Also the figure looks a little like she is floating and not standing on the ground. Sweet work man, hope to see you at the master class next year.

    McLean-since I went to the master class too i thought i would give you my feelings on it. I thought it was the probably the best artistic descision i have ever met (even more than going to art school) you cannot belive how much i learned there. the tuition was worth every penny (some people said the workshop paid for itself by the second day!) there was about 70 students and the talent and age ranged greatly, I was one of the yougest people there at age 22, there were some people that were 50. if you have a passion for art then i strongly recomend this workshop.

    McClean: Wow...thanks for the comments. I think you might be right actually. I did have another background layer where I played around with defining the background elements, but chose to leave it off because it just got too distracting. I really wanted to focus on the figure. Butttttttt, you might be one to something with the cool/warm relationship. I think I will work on the more...and still define the background more. At ComicCon, the biggest thing people told me was some of my pieces look 97% done. So I just need to push them just a bit more finished...and I plan on it.

    The masterclass was amazing. It was so much fun and so informative. If they do it again, I'm totally signing up again. It cost $1700 for classes and room and board, plus 3 meals a day. Not bad, considering you get a week of classes taught by some of todays best illustrators. The students ranged from just starting out/beginner in oils, to working professionals (one guy worked in animation for Warners Bros...and worked on Iron Giant and the Matrix) So there was a good range of talent.

    MissingLink: Hey, I do remember you. I didn't really have time to finish up Robin Hood. Between class and work and getting ready for ComicCon...I just didn't have time. I did, however, overlay some color in photoshop...just to harmonize the color and temp. I plan on doing it completely over, once I get some free time.

    Merlkir: Thank you, man. Glad you stopped by.

    Awesome stuff. The last one has a few issues with the leg anatomy, but the costuming is da bomb.

    Mr Doom: Yeah, I think I see that now....it's kinda bent outward a little too much.

    Here's this week's chow: Blood Moon Monk. I think with this topic, we're going to get a lot of similar entree...but I'm just going to go for something 95% cool looking, 5% original.

    The monk looks like it's going to be interesting. I've seen your stuff in a lot of CHOWs; your characters have a very distinctive upper-class look to them, and I think the way that contrasts with your costume choices and character attitudes is always fun to see. Good luck on the CHOW this week!

    Senira: Thank you!

    Just a little update: A friend of mine and I are putting together a book of villains. We started a blog to set up challenges every few weeks. Check it out - artgasmchallenge.blogspot.com

    This week's challenge is to come up with a villain concept for a Boss and Assistant. Here's what I came up with. Going for underworld arms manufacturer. He's the guy that other villains go to get their crazy, diabolical weapons made. Need a spiked mace that leaks poisonous gas. Go to him. Need a gauntlet that also serves as repel line. This is your guy.

    {I haven't done his assistant yet...but right now I'm gearing towards making that character his daughter. Plan to paint it this week. Update to follow}

    Jed: Perhaps, you're right. I started painting, though. I think I'm going to make the daughter the character that's more 'out' there. He's just a workshop bad guy. Nothin' fancy about him. I'm not trying to skirt the issue of him not being super original or creative. No excuse, really. Just in my head, I wanted him to be the boring one and the daughter to be the "whoa" one.

    Here's the painted updated: (Just the basic underpainting)
    I did add some biker tattoos on his arm. And I've got to redo the face.

    i love your painting style! everytime i see one of your pieces i can recognize it immediately. and the way the iron glows is very simple yet effective!
    concerning him being a villian - i dunno. he doesn't look evil at all, rather concentrated. but life would be boring if all bad guys could be easily identified...

    and i look forward to see with what you come up for the daughter!

    I haven't been doing much art for the past month. Been kinda busy with work and other life. To boot myself into gear, I've been attending this little (great) Figure Drawing group in Quincy. It's only going to last 3 sessions, and I kinda wish it lasted longer.

    Here are some of my faves from last night's class.

    So, I've been in a little funk lately. Haven't drawn much. Basically work, tv, eh, more-work. blah. I took a figure drawing class for the past few weeks and, as I was hoping, jumped-started my creativity a bit.

    My friend and I are doing a book of villians. This weeks' topic is to create a hero's doppleganger.

    Here's my take:
    The Hero is a telekinetic human, who's very much in charge of his abilities. I always figured, though, that if telekinesis really existed it would probably leave the person with some sort of mental handicap. Like, the brain just can't handle all that information. In a way, I'm thinking something similar to autism, where all the information is stored, but processing is difficult. I'm also thinking that if someone were to be able to control things telekinetically, then their motor functions would probably be limited.
    Here, my villain has the telekinetic gifts, but he has almost no real control of them. He lashes out in fits of rage over his circumstances, and is quite powerful. This is just a real quick sketch. Just wanted to get some attitude on paper. I'll have to fix the body and hands some, maybe add in some levitating object, like a car, in the background. It also sort of looks like Punk-rock Snair...which I wasn't really aiming for.

    Jesus! I've got to get back to doing this book on a daily basis.

    Here's some recent work: A friend and I are doing some Villain of the Week challenges over at our blog Artgasm (artgasmchallenge.blogspot.com)

    This week's challenge was to create a Bond-like villain who creates machines. I decided to go for a guy who builds submarines and is plotting to alter the underwater sea currents which control the Earths land temperatures.
