    // The Douchebaggery //

    I decided to make a new sketchthread because I honestly can't stand some of my old stuff, just as I'm sure I'm not gonna be able to stand this new stuff in a year. Thanks to everyone who offered up encouragement in my last thread.

    Some newness

    ender - Thanks man!

    Magic Man - Thanks man, I appreciate it. I've been enjoying the stuff in your sketchbook.

    maknien - Thanks! The first sketch with the faces was actually done completely in photoshop, but most of the time I go back and forth. There are some brushes in painter I really like, but for detail stuff I usually go to photoshop.

    I used to do quite a bit of these here self-portraits, but I probably haven't done one in a year (I'll have to check my old SB to be sure, hehe). I decided to start another one for old times sake. I used a slightly blurred, overlay layer to punch up the colors a bit.

    Too sweet - do you actually finish any of these though or are you using them as studies?

    Magic Man - Thanks man. I'm sure I'll finish this one eventually. I just tend to jump around a lot on personal projects.

    van - You're too kind man! Too kind.

    Something new I started tonight

    You´re just too fucking good. Seriously. But in a kind of inspiring way.
    And that self portrait is amazing.

    Post some more!

    That self portrait is totally hot, man. I agree with strych, you nailed the likeness on that. And the colors are wicked too. Love the warm pallette and the use of the blues and purples.

    One small observation, and it might just be the work posted here and not indicative of things on the whole, but your stuff from imagination tends to put the heads either in profile or full frontal. I noticed it immediately with the latest one...that full profile view of the scene really flattens things...I _think_ you're going for two creatures sorta looking at each other here, but I'd almost like to see the creature you've started sort of circling a bit around the hanging creature, with a bit of sideways motion and facing a tad more towards us (and maybe the opposite effect from the hanger)...bring focus to one of the creatures and increase the sense of space. </rambling>

    Cody - Thanks dude.

    Flaskpost - Man, that's too much. Thanks a lot!

    Fuki - Ah thanks dude. I totally agree with you. The latest one especially looks really flat, which I noticed as I was working on it today. I guess it's just a comfort thing that a lot of the stuff ends up in a full front or side view. Also, a lot of times I just doodle without much of plan or underdrawing so I default to those views unintentionally. Definitely something I need to watch out for. Great crit.

    Well I'm just slowly picking away at the last one. Like I said, I dunno where this is going really. I'll probably keep futzing with it until it stops being fun.
