Wow. Great use of color. Can't wait to see more.
you dont know how much i love those watercolors. great stuff bro. we should oc sometime.
Van - thanks dude
Pat - you too, thanks for tha compliments. I'm totally down for some OC action, just have to find (make) the time.
and now for some update:
here are the watercolors from the SI thang on September 27th:
And last night's hackery.
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
i never get tired of your life sketches...ever
i hope i can chill with you soon and some sketchin in the near future (being a daddy is tough!)
peace bro..talk to ya soon
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
Cheers, and see you @ the SoI tonight.

nice stuff I like the lifely feeling you know to bring into your works
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.
whats on the 23rd? Also you need to tighten up arkady. Im sick of this loose crap. You need to do some bargue drawings and copies of plaster casts. Thats real art. Not this hippie tree hugging crap.
nice oc guy, the last batch of figures is looking sweet as well. Some in my favsfolder.
this new batch from tonight i fiddled with the levels a bit. But yeah, my camera is on its last leg, and my scanner is not much better.
Tonight's (tried to show off for Tony Bennett, succeeded just on the last one):
these watercolors look great. it reminds me of charles reid's watercolor book on figures. it makes me want to do more traditional painting.
