Hey Sage, these look really good. All exept the Pam Anderson one, which just isn't up to the same level as the rest. I'd take this one off your site, along with the Phil Hale copy, just cause, no matter how good it is, it's just a Phil Hale copy, and the Orson Wells drawing. Remember, when showing your portfolio, whether on line or in person, it pays to be merciless to yourself.

Yo sage, what up? Cool pieces man. Love the one of Natalie They all look pretty good overall. The one of Ludacris,or the 3rd one, the eyes seem a little close together. Are you in class this semester at all? If so, what days? Shoot me a PM or something. Hope all is well man.

i agree with elwell about the pam anderson drawing... its definitly lacking compared to the portraits... her breasts seem very flat to me compared the stomach. plus the left nipple is too high i think. but the portraits are great.

These are really well done. And generally the quality is very high on the site too. However, I think the jump in quality between the sketchbook and finished paintings on your site is quite remarkable. I actually think that sections hurt the overall feel of your work a bit. (Depending on what you want with the site, that is.)
I thought I knew the works of Phil Hale pretty well, but apparently I don't since I can't find that painting of yours that Elwell mentions.
Thanks for sharing.

thanks for all the feedback. based on your comments I have made some online portfolio changes... dumped the hale study (which is why you can't find it) ...etc. thank you all for the comments. eventually my site will have a daily shot of what ever is on my easel, as I gear up for a show at the end of the summer. The sketchbook stuff definitely is from a different planet. but I keep getting so much illustration work based on it that I just keep lettin' fly.

wow, these are definitely awesome. like everyone else says, i'd get rid of the pam anderson one. it's just not up to par with everything else. if i was looking through your portfolio and saw everything else first, then this or vice versa, i'd be dissapointed and curious about the rest of the pieces. top notch work on the others tho. i love that natalie portman. keep postin =)
