AmishCommy's SB - update: 05/22 (Progress Report on various paintings)
originally wanted to have my Studio Journal moved to this thread but i guess its better to start off a new one. Maybe this will get me sketching more.
Here are some gems i'm actually happy with from the Society of Illustrators Jazz Sketching:

Edit: here's another one i was able to weasel out of my poopy camera:

Beautiful stuff! The one on the left is my favourite, lady on the bottom is done so nice.
Post more please.
Cookiedough, That fat kid - thanks for the replys.
heres the rest of the batch:
Wow, I'm very impressed with your figure work. The subtle use of color works so well, although I think you could have placed the red in that last one in a better place. lol. Good stuff, though. I'll be back.
omg youre like the best drawer ever. super good!!
madplanet - ya she was sitting on a red cloth and i love that color a little too much. its way too distracting, but then again the figure itself turned out pretty poopy so maybe its a good thing its distracting.
winjer - i got's to show off for the fans. You missed out a fun night. School can wait. Nells and I came up with a system to make the tarp our bitch.
weee - new batch from the SI Jazz session:
and an old one from July:
shit, rock on with these watercolors.
Very expressive lines and shapes.
So glad to see you starting another sketchbook here. I gotta sit next to you one day at the SOI drawing session and watch you draw. You are so loose and expressive...but I won't go on. You know how I feel about your sketches..(i love em)
I got an Egon Schiele book for my birthday called Drawings and Watercolors. It's awesome..you would really appreciate it I think.
can't wait to see more mate
Damn good work man, I'm glad you started a book here bud. The confidence you have in the looseness of your painting style is evident... it was great to meet you bro, and hopefully it'll happen again soon.
Awesome stuff russian, keep this up and you should wind up running your own gallery!
dude ,, these are sweet,,, I guess all of that life drawing in the park and on the subways is paying off,,,,,, are you guys still doing the subway sketch group???? I am back from my summer place and really want to get some a' pleine air type shit,,, get back to me if the thing is still going,,,,,,I will be able to come a lot... keep on posting cuz this life drawing is great, like tony the tiger would say,,,,,,, one last thing,,,, are you attending any life drawing courses in the city???? if so where, I am going occasionally to the minerva durham studio and it is okay,, but if you know of some better stuff,, tip me off, guy,, okay bye
thanks to all: Diego, That fat kid
Scott: - Schiele is like a god to me. being compared to him is the greatest ego boost anyone can give me.
Cody: - thanks a lot man. hopefully i can fill this with other things besides watercolors.
Aviv: - yeah right.
codakromek: (tony? right?) - Subway Sketch Group happening every sunday. This Sunday will be even better. I'll be at the Pond early with my easel and oils. here is the INFO on the event.
October schedule will be a little weird. October 2dn i'm helping pack theSpectrum show at the SI. and October 16th i'll be down in florida (hopefully with some luck i'll be able to get the gallery i worked at to pick up these watercolors and sell them for ridiculous amounts to stupid rich people) but the rest of you are more than welcome to come out and draw without me. I never wanted this thing to be dependant on me.
as far as life drawing goes. Jazz Sessions every tuesday at the SI (128 E. 63rd St. and Lex.) and the 3rd thursday. $12 ($6 with student id) gets you 3 hours of drawing beautiful models amongst the greatest illustrations history has to offer and a great Jazz band every night. They also have a Bar where you can get wasted (for a price though)
you could sell your stuff here i think. You have to go to city hall or something and get htis certificate of authority or something for free and youre allowed to harass people on the street trying to sell them stuff. I have a friend at school who sux and makes like $200 a week doing that.
yeah, but that requires work on my part. besides, it does not compare to a gallery charging $500 for something that took me 10 minutes to do.
did this last night on OC (my comPOOter has too much shit on it to run PS) took just over an hour. I'll try to finish it up one of these night. then i'll put up the .wpe file.
