    Woo, way to step up the ante! Love the arms on the dude, great render!
    If I had one crit (and wouldn't you know it: I do!) its that the reflected light hitting the bottom of the ogre mofo's face is too strong, makes his head appear closer and therefore disconnected from the body. :X
    And yes, i am way uber-jealous of your book collection. I miss having moneys
    Oh well, least Ive got more hair then guggen

    Dammit, that last one is just awesome! The expression on the big guy is priceless and this composition really works because they could be up to just about anything; this causes the viewer to kind of interact more by injecting their own adventure in there. Successful piece, I'd say.

    AldayJay: Thanks, mate! I need to make my rounds over to your book too. Glad you like the new works.

    brok3kenspirit: Maybe we should disband. lol Doesn't seem to be much activity for most of us lately being busy or something. Glad you like the drawing, man. Yea, that brown paper is great. And it's cheap! Just butcher paper!

    fooxoo: Thanks! I will!!

    Midnight: Thanks a lot. Yea, prolly... the secret to good pencils is patience and loads of layering. Done be afraid to erase and mix it up with other pencil softnesses. Keep at it!

    flaskpost: I'm inspiring people?! Sweetness! Hope you like the next update of graphics. Nothin' to write home about but what the heck. Keep comin' back for da' real thing, Flask ol' boy!

    Gugg: That's for all the help tonight with pricing and all that good stuff. You really remind me that what the crap I'm doing here with my art is for real. I ain't just some random guy drawin' funny pictures. I appreciate the encouragment and constant butt kicking you hand me to keep me going!! We're gonna sketch so much in MTL that we're gonna run outta pencils and have to smear our blood around on the canvas with a stick!! And yea, I remember that Friskies stuff.. lol You bring the most random dishes to the table, Gugg. lol Much love.

    SirGreenSock: Nik, you're hillarious. Good chattin' with ya and gettin' your opinions tonight. And yea, you're right about the crit. I'll be sure to fix the wrongs in it when I get it back from the show. It's kinda too late now. Keep pointing out the flaws tho! I'm still proud of it!! And yea, you need to get on the book club bandwagon... I just bought the new N8VanDyke one yesterday! Ships May 1st! Yea!!

    madplanet: Thanks a lot! I really like how it turned out too. It's a fun piece. Random but fun. The lighting I think helps the composition. It's definately one of the best works I've ever done. Glad you enjoyed your look at it!

    Mitch: Thanks, bro. I'll take a look at that crit and see what I can do. I think they're alright tho. Keep at it!
    -----------------------------------
    Well, you guys were talking about graphics work and my logo and stuff... which I'd still like more help with since I'm gonna maybe use the thing. But I thought I'd update with this project I just finished tonight (pending no more revisions) for a T shirt design for my school. It's pretty simple, a few caricatures in a Royal Flush, just black and white line art. Easy cheesy. And I'm also posting some logo work I've done over the past year or so. I've got a lot of this sort of stuff. I don't do it as much as I used to but it really helped me get aquainted with Illustrator and get used to working with people doing freelance. So, something different. And I don't have to scan a dang thing so that makes it even better for me! lol I need to do that scan and dump soon tho. We'll see. I'm pretty tired, lazy and streched for time. ARG. Much love, guys. See ya in the next update.

    BTW, my stuff is matted and framed and ready to hang. I'll post pics from the show when it's all hung and good to go. Assuming I can take decent pictures of it. Heh. I'm outta here. Lata.

    Ry

    Ryan my man, just wanted to drop some love and respect. It's good to be well rounded as an artist, and you've done that here with the graphics. Gotta get my hands on illustrator myself. And you already know i'm loving the pencils for the show, don't worry about impressing others but yourself. The best feeling is when you know you've improved but keep pushing yourself even further. I'm liking the pictures showing parts of your "studio", it's nice to see others' work areas. And i'd like to say thanks for being apart of this art journey with me and the DOOM, it's always a good feeling to know that other's have got my back. Cheers, man.

    Love your studies, well actually your whole sketchbook. And the reading I have to do on your sketchbook is like mine. Haha, I thought talking too much on my sb was a problem.

    You inspire me and nooo, i dont think you'll be living in your parent's basement all your life. You've got too much skillz!! I'm still livin with my folks, but that's because they are super gracious and give me mercy for going to our community college to get the basics outta the way. I can't wait for art college!! GAHHH!!

    Keep up the sweet work and you'll def see my face around here (your sb) more often. Oh and those ads look freakin sweet and pro!

    Zord: Thanks, man. I'm trying to be well rounded. I've been working with graphics for a long time now so I'm fairly familiar with it. I seldom join my traditional stuff with my digital stuff but I really should attempt to marry them together more. We shalt see! Thanks for stoppin' in! And don't worry, always got your back, bro!

    MattGamer: Heh, hope to see you around more, bro. Glad you like my SB! And glad I could inspire you to pick up the pencil again. It's crazy what this site does for my inspiration! BTW, dont' worry about the wordy thing... yea, I got the bug too. lol

    Pennington: Thanks! And you're welcome!

    Darktwin: Thanks.

    Tyranx: LoL That's a great idea! Too bad it's already on display now. Man, I may have to change the name if I use that crap again! Ha!

    kingcoyote: Whatzzzup?!?! Thanks again for comin' out tonight and showin' mad support. I really appreciate it, man. It was also great to finally meet ya. Hopefully we'll be seein' much more of eachother! Lookin' forward to Friday too with Fatty!! Right on!!!

    -----------------------------------
    Well, I had a great time at my Senior Show tonight and had a lot of people seeming to dig my work. I think average layman leans towards a liking for illustration rather than fine artsy stuff so it was cool to be well recieved, even if I did have Harry Potter fan art in my art show by accident. lol ANYHOW. It was so awesome havin' my friends and family come down and look at my crap. I didn't sell anything (yet anyhow) tho several people would have liked to had I priced them more affordable. lol It's cool tho because I wasn't really ready to see 'em go. But yea, it was awesome. I even got to see my boy KingCoyote (Jeff) who came down to take a look and have a beer with me afterwards (ok, I didn't drink but next time I will! lol). I'm sorry I don't have better pictures and if you want to see more you can check out my page on Facebook... if you don't have that or don't know what that means than just ignore that last comment. lol So here are a few pics from the evening. Again, sorry, my camera sucks and it's hard to shoot good pics through the glass of the frames. ACK! Hope you like 'em! Maybe I'll shoot s'more when I get 'em home and un frame em to take better pics. We'll see. I'm one month away from graduating college guys!! Wiggity Wack!!

    In other news, ThatFatKid (Andrew) is coming down this weekend to spend it with your's truly. Definately lookin' forward to meetin' Andrew and getting our sketch on. I'm sure I'll have more pics of that as well. Should have some pics of KingCoyote with us too as he's going to tag along with us a lil bit. Should be a pre-workshop blast!! This week has been the best ever!! So, I should have a healthy update after this weekend. 'Till then, I guess enjoy the pics of my show! Take it easy, peeps!!

    Four of my works got their own wall.. Oooo....

    "The Day Of Pentecost"

    Bixby the Blower... you wouldn't believe how many people wanted this freakin' image... Many settled for my promise that I'd eventually print it on a T-Shirt... lol Guess I should make that Children's book afterall...

    "T Is For Teamwork"

    "Gotta Get Up To Get Down", a page I jazzed up from my sketchbook.

    "Big Top", another page you'll recognize from this SB... these last two drawings were in another room mixed with other works from other peoples. Prolly got looked over, I dunno.

    Me and my buddy, ATLAS2900 (Kevin) who was also in the show...

    Me and Jeff (KingCoyote) standing by some of my works... This was the first time I'd actually met Jeff face to face so it was really cool to meet him and to have him come out to my show... Nice to find someone else with similar goals and interests! Very cool dude...

    And here's KingCoyote again at Applebee's after the show. Sarah (My GF) and I went there for some dinn and he went there for some beerz. And despite what this picture may tell you, he didn't have that many. Heh.


    Gooooood times. You should have seen all of my classmates tailgating outside the show because there wasn't alcohol in the show. lol They showed up at Applebee's later, some of 'em a bit drunk. Ah, college days... almost over now... kinda sad... G'nite guys.

    Must be weird meeting cats from the site, like meeting celebrities. I would get autographs. I'll have to hate on you for "Big Top", you didn't even finish it. I guess I'll randomly add that I too wear glasses, I want to get that laser surgery. Congratulations on the show. By the way, how much were you charging for the drawings?

    Once again... Great show Ryan! Like I said, you have great potential to go a long way. Just don't blow it by getting down on yerself, you know?

    I had meant to ask you about "The Day of Pentacost". Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but... Pentecost is judgement day, right? Where all the souls of the rightous go to heaven, and the damned go to hell. So I assume that the little glowey balls are these peoples souls. What I wanted to ask is, "What is the significance of all the people with mouths agape and tounges sticking out, except the dude with his mouth sewn shut?"

    Had a great time talking to you last night... Sorry for bending your ear so much! Ha-ha! Oh... and in that last pic of me, I hadn't had any beers yet!

    ...And you were very brave for trying the stout.

    Later.

    Nice update man. Nice to see you almost graduating!! Great pieces... and believe me, i know how hard it is to take pictures of your stuff in the glass... with the stupid reflections and all. Haha

    I love how CA just grasps you then doesn't let you go... so you have to keep drawing or you'll be left in the dust. Well, for some of us. Haha
    What are you going to do after college? Gotten any job proposals lately?

    Soy... you mean soy. Missouri grows a ton of it. Those folks across the border do corn... Oh, and cows! Did you know that Missouri is the second largest bovine producer in the country? Only the great state of Texas can beat us! ...and they're welcome to the title.

    I like to use Luke's description of Tatooene... "If there's a bright center of the universe, then this is the place it's furthest from."

    Sorry to Hijack your SB Ryan... Just stoked is all!

    Later.

    hey zebs, great show!! all your works are really top. the day of pentacost is great! what was your motive behind it. it looks like a commentary on the early christian church. having people filled w/ the Holy Spirit making them kida like zombies or something. and boxby the blower reminds me of the flight comic. and i think it's a little simpler and that gives it a lot too. sometimes less is more. great job on it. oh yeah and it looks like you and KC had a lot a fun, he's such a goof. cool, later.

    Congrats on the show! I don't see a lot of pencil work in the galleries near me (admittedly, that's not many...), and it's great to see this!

    Thanks for dropping by my SB, btw, and keep rocking with the pencils!

    How long will your work be up there?
    By the way thanks for letting me visit the other day
    (before your birthday) it was verry cool- to
    look through your Sketchbook...

    I'm going to attempt to sculpt the stiched stomach dude
    I'll show you the progress when I get anywhere with it.
    I'm gonna guess at what his back looks like.
