Greetings all. Some of you may know me, but most likely no. My name is Ian Olsen. Graduated from Ringling in 2003. Ive finally decided to kill my reluctance to post here after a long time lurking and confess. Ive taken so much from this website and its members in knowledge and inspiration. And its just not right to take and take and take. I must pay for my crimes of take with give, and this is my attempt to do so. So heres some of my thefts and failures. Feel free to punish me as I deserve.

i really like some of th stuff you're pullin with your linework and value. lets see some more.
These are hot.
But for as hot as they are, they don't *quite* cover the cost of all you've taken, so I'm afraid that we must request that you post more.
LOL - welcome to the boards - great start, and seriously, looking forward to seeing more. Some of your sketches there are just wicked.
Hey thanks guys for the words of attonement. But I know I have many a sin that must be accounted for. And for every transgression it must be repaid ten fold. I am prepaired to pay the price.
Heres some more 10 min figures and some self portraits Ive done.
Hey that guy with the eye in his skull is awesome, i can't believe i haven't seen this idea before, most artwork reminds me of something else, this one is very original seeming, i'm sure i'll probably remember something close to this but right now i can't.......THE RING!, not quite but close.
my favorite is the guy with giant mech arms, I'd like to see a drawing that is only a mech, y'know... no cyborg zombie elements just mecha. but that's me.
I really dig your life drawings. you have implemented a very nice technique.
Thanks all for the compliments. Ill try to post some new stuff soon, hopefully Ill get to do some new life drawings but I rarely get the chance. For now I just have to settle with posting more of my old self ports. Maybe I can find some color. Just realized the thread was lookin kinda bleak.
Great work here brothaman... love the face in this...

Oh you really came here to give something new.
I really like your stuff. First thing that caught my eye was your interesting linework (mostly on those live figures). Defenitely not too clean. I like it. For me the most interesting piece here was this http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a12...ortninja01.jpg. I just love the design.
Keep on posting!
I like your stuff... be sure i'll have an eye on you guy
More old stuff. All cleaned up from my old portfolio. Hate looking at my old work. Always see too many things I dont like. Bleh. I need to get some newer work done to post, if only I could find the time....Well Ive always got more self ports if youd like to see em!! Prolly post those soon. Anyways cheers!
Killer stuff in here! Love the dirty drawings !

Really damn strong stuff. Love the mood/lightning on the first pages! Keep it up !
Gee man..I just LOVE the texture in these drawings...Did that even make sense? I think you should do some coloured versions of the female..I think that would look awesome. Well done
Hey all. Thanks for everyone's comments. Its been great to get such a positive reaction to my work. I plan on posting much more and hopefully pleasing enough eyes to make up for my absence until now. Ive always loved this site and how much there is to absorb and learn. Its really great to get feedback from such a diversity of other artists all over the world. Please by all means be as critical as you are complimentary, cus thats the only way we all learn!! Thanks again. Cheers.
