these are getting better. are you paying more attention to the warm/cool alternation?
The newer ones seem to have more of a sense of form. Might just be because thats what im learning about though. Im gonna photoshop the shredder mask on that one i told you later. But im tired now
That fat kid - thanks dude, Schille anywhere in the vicinity of my name is a huge ego boost.
Shiraj, Scott - thanks as well. Sunday was awesome. I don't know about you two but i was so inspired by Tiffany's work that i decided to totally jack her imagination and do a version of her CHARACTER. Hopefully she aproves. I kinda forgot to sleep and spent something like 2 hours on this on OC last night (now i pass out at work). it's sad.
Hey Commy, nice stuff. You really have to loosen up though...stop cramping up! Just kidding. I admire your ability to be so loose, as I am a bit of a coward in that regard. I just can't leave it alone until it's all tightened up.
I really dig the pregnant females, you really brought across the mass and weight effectively. You seem a bit more ambitious with color in OC somehow, maybe because it doesn't cost you any paint? lol
I'm not bullshitting or saying this cause we know each other...I really believe you have some of the strongest life-drawings on this entire forum. It's rare to see so much information in such a loose, expressive style. I cannot say enough good things.
- Tiffany's character redo is looking sweet! Yeah..she rocks, and it's only a matter of time I think with her...she's gonna do well.
I picked up this David Mack Kabuki comic yesterday...it's just a collection of watercolors and shit. He does some stuff in there, that I really think I could see you producing fo your illustrations. Especially now that you are doing these watercolors from life (preggo looks awesome by the way) -
If everything goes well...I plan on coming the 23rd...I'll bring it if ya like.
sweet life drawings. The line and watercolor is great. try using a colored pen for the outline or a colored pencil. Its fun. To bad your scanner or camera werent better. Maybe try fixing the contrast in photoshop before you post.
chris ocampo - thanks for the kind words. but you made me feel like a dick cause i didn't know who Charles Reid was. But then i looked him up. Thanks fo finding another guy for me to look up to and to learn from.
Well, i had some time to slack down in FL and some time to sketch. Too bad nothing good came out of it.
Here i was testing out some new watercolors i found in my stash of supples. (Flex Mathew's inspired - that's right Pat, i've been doing a bunch of scull people lately and i blame you)
Odda - i do these figure drawings at the Society of Illustrators here in NY. every Tuesday they get a jazz band and some burlesque dancers to pose. and they have a fully loaded bar to get fully loaded. its pretty sweet. its like a lounge with naked girls and the history of illustration on the walls.
Diego - thanks dude, i got really pricy watercolors that have really rich pigments and i love smearing them all over the paper.
ApolloNuevo - I use a pad of strathmore 140lb Coldpress watercolor paper. Although the last batch was kinda funky and fairly rough (kinda makes the ridiculous price i paid for it at an overpriced art store worth it though.) I also have some arches 300lb paper that i cut up but i havent used it yet becasue i've been sucking for the past few weeks.
CoNTRoL - i guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I avoid the faces in watercolor mainly cause i don't want to fuck them up. But i really do draw way too many faces and not enough other things. as far as red nipples are concerned, i work at the SI and i kinda tweak the model's nipples before they start so that they have some blood flowing to them , nah i recently started to focus more on their true color.
you do have ability but you need work...
everyone has ability but everyone also needs work. Yuo should hear Jon Foster complain about how much he hates his stuff and how he needs to work harder. I'm no different. I'm the first and last one to hate my stuff.
Interceptor - use Shminke watercolor halfpans (although i've been using tubes to refil them and its not the same but its cheeper) I used to use a size 6 Kolinski brush (which is awesome) but lately, becasue i like to work big, i've been using a size 16 and 20 Red sable brushes. They don't rock as much as Kolinski's but they are a hell of a lot cheeper (one day i'll fork over the $1500 for a size 50 DaVinci Kolinski) The brown ink is Walnut Ink, its not waterrproof and i like that i can work into it. and i either use a brush or a dip pen with it. one of these day's i'll photograpg my tools for ya.
Icey - Finished. HAHAHAHAH!!! that'll be the day. but yeah, i'd like to see myself finish something too.
shiraj - HAHAHA!!! it is now.
tensai - thanks for the cheerleading. sketching from life in general is such a great payoff.
armando - ya dude, i have no imagination, rotted that out by watching lame sitcoms and masturbating way too much. Perspective is my evil nemesis. makes all my stuff look stiff and labored. Plus all them lines just confuse me. Plus i never really took the time to learn it. I suck.
styler - thankee!!!
so there is no model session tomorrow so i'll try to make up for it by taking some of the sketches i did today in the park during lunch and trying to work them up in color. I stumbled onto a fashion shoot where all the models were wearing crazy animal masks and now i'm all sorts of inspired. Hope they're there again tomorrow.
