    Damn fine sketchbook!
    Dont know which I love more, the lines or the pencils!
    The recent oils look great, very fresh and energetic! Do you paint it straight on alla prima?
    Also enjoying the way you insert the subtle greens and reds into the figure!

    Thanks for the inspiration! gotta go draw/paint!

    Do you ever look at stuff that is sooo close to where you want to be that it makes you sad? Not a bad sad really, more of a "See? That's it!" I don't know... I hope that makes sense, and doesn't make me sound creepy... beautiful work this time 'round, man!

    The girl on the train looks like Roz from "Frasier".

    ...stupid fox. That's probably my favourite.

    Keep up the great work, I always enjoy it!
    Later.

    I'm getting sleepy, so I'm just going to say, "Awesome." Your oils remind me a little of the Ashcan school, nice and loose but it's all in there. Cool cool cool.

    Hey dude-

    sweet update, glad to see your posting so much. Glad to see the paintings starting to come out again, totally bang up work.

    Two things I'm particularly digging: The polar bears, or just regular bears, they're rock and roll. The second is that chick on a subway. The drawing is nice, but mostly I'm attracted to how you handled her face, I think its really pretty great for as simple as it is. Where are you pulling this reference from for this group of drawings?

    Word up. Rock out.

    Whoops, didn't mean to lapse in the updatin for so long. Seems ol Andy P does still actually have a social life. Huh, who knew? So not much drawing/painting done for the last two weeks. On the plus side, my beer pong skills are back to their prime.
    I'll try and get more done here very soon, thanks to everyone for the comments!

    Orozco- Thanks, watercolor's something I feel I've never gotten as much as I could out of it. I need to play with it more and try and bring more energy into it.
    gmags- Yeah man, will do.
    SirGreenSock- Thanks for the love, I usually just paint straight, maybe working with a burnt sienna ground or something, no real set game plan each time.
    tensai- That monkey loves you!
    ashrumm- Thanks man, yeah I've been leanin heavy on the pen for the last coupla months. Probably comes from lookin at a lot of stuff like Cotron's SB. Thanks for checkin this shtuff oot.
    Darktwin- Yeah those paintings have been pretty fun so far, one night I just decided to take a buncha goofy reference of myself trying to look like I could actaully fight someone. Big ol lie.
    kingcoyote- Dude I know that feeling all too well, where you see something and it's like "frig! that makes it look so damn simple!". The stuff that's been doing that to me recently has been Mike Mignola's stuff, and a former teacher of mine, Sterling Hundley. Sterling is doing pretty much exactly what I want to do, smart, good looking illustrations, with heavy concept. He makes it look too damn easy! Frig!
    Groover McNab- Cheers right back at ya man.
    salah- Thanka mucho!
    Idiomatic- Wow, high praise, I love a lot of the ashcan stuff. Thanks for checking in.
    pennington- Most everything in here is from Ref, with the exception of the SPs and some of the goofier stuff. Usually I try and keep the line stuff down to about 5-10 minutes, if that. Any rendering'll take me considerably longer, cause I love to noodle.
    stine- If I could possibly get "That Fisticuffs-Guy" to stick as my nickname, I'd be set. Thanks for the words!
    VeSeljak- Thanks, you make-a me blush!
    majinpunisher- Yoooooo dude, thanks for the comments. Most of the reference I've been using lately is from a site called flickrleech. As far as I can tell flickr is a site kinda like this, cept for photographers. Kinda. Flickrleech just filters the more interesting stuff posted from that particular day. So everyday I've got a new batch of random junk to draw from. Good inspirado when their's good stuff on it.

    Well here's what I've managed to spurt out over the past two hectic weeks.

    Hey That Fisticuffs-Guy, Great update!

    I checked out Sterling Hundley. Cool stuff... What I could see of it anyway. Unfortunately, most of (well actually, every one I tried except for the default images) the thumbnails didn't link to larger images for me. Pretty dissapointing really, that I didn't get to see too much of it...

    The flickrleech site rocks! Thanks for the link!

    This one, with the fish is just lovely! Maybe it's just me, but there's something about levitating fishes...

    You're doing great stuff man! Take care and hope to see ya soon!

    I really like the inks. Though I am curious, are some of the proportions of your pieces purposely out of proportion, since there is a style to these, some of them I feel sit on the fence about porportions, cant tell if its a mistake or on purpose. Keep up the good work.

    I'm a little less tired now than the last time I checked in, so I've got a bit more to say. . . This shit is stellar, Andy. I really appreciate how each of your sketches has enough of your own interpretation or character to have a life or narrative of its own, which seems to be really really difficult, and when you tie them all together on one page with arrows or text or glances it just slaughters me. I really hope I can take some of my sketching this direction; it's really inspiring! Great work, man!

    Yo yo! Awesome updates, Andy. I really like that last pic in the your latest post, Poopin.jpg. Except i can't for the life of me, figure out why the hell it's called that... Anyway, you're stuff rocks- and it always cracks me up. Keep it up!

    Here's somethin real quick...

    wakazou- Thanks, I really should paint more than I do. It's somethin I'm workin on.
    bumskee- Thanks, me like lines. As fer coloring the pages, ummm, I don't know, I try and a color a page in PS every once in a while, and it never really turns out the way I like. I'll try sometime here soon.
    kingcoyote- "Fisticuffs-guy." Yessssss. Thanks for the words man. Too bad about Sterling's site, seems like I've had some trouble with it too on another computer, something about it using Javascript. I'm not that computer literate to know what's up. Anyway, he's got a piece on there that he used me as reference for that's won a silver medal at the Society of Illustrators. If you find a way to check it out, it's the piece for a play called Hair.
    cotron- Mmmm, pats from Cody. On my special place. Good way to start the morning.
    pennington- Gracias!
    Darktwin- Thanks dude!
    SirGreenSock- Thanks, exclamation point!
    maxetormer- Whoa, glad you like the stuff. Just curious, was it because you like Tom Waits, or was it just that you like those drawings in particular? Because, man, I've been listening so much Waits over the last year, it's not even funny. That guy is awesome. And fun to draw. Here's a page from a sketchbook from about a year ago where I think I got his likeness a bit better. Anyway, if you have no idea who I'm talking about, sorry for the off topic rant. As for ink tips, um, man I just kinda fly by the seat of my pants. Always try and have confidence in your lines, and don't be afraid to black things out!
    Matt Smith- Yeah man, you're right. Most of the time the exaggeration is purposefull, my stuff looks weak when I don't really commit to something. Thanks for stopping in.
    Idiomatic- Yeah, I find the stuff I like to look at most has a bit of narrative to it, too, even if it's just a glance from one figure to another. But, still gotta love just gobbing on the random stuff onto one page. Fun times.
    Orozc0- Thanks, looking at your page always makes me wanna paint really big again. Thanks for the input.
    sith- Hah, that one's called poopin because at first I had just drawn the lady with no couch under her, thinking it would be a page of just figures. Her pose made her look like she was about to take a dump, so I added in the couch. Also I was listening to an NPR interview with Robert Smigel, so I had Triumph the insult comic dog saying "for me to poop on" for inspiration.

    Okay so here's a new painting I did and scanned in steps. It's an oil-lift out technique that allows you to paint but still keep really close to your drawing. I never learned this technique until my junior year of college, so I hope this might help at least somebody... For examples of people who can really do it well check out old Mark English and C F Payne.
    First off I started out with a drawing done with a burnt sienna colored pencil on illustration board. I Crystal Clear that, then hit it with an oil wash of more burnt sienna. I brush that dry then I lift out the highlights using a kneaded eraser. Once I'm happy I Crystal Clear it again, then hit it with a cool wash, mostly Dioxizine Purple, French Ultramarine, and Permanent Green. The I lift out the highlights again. Wasn't feeling it was cool enough yet, so I did another cool wash and lifted highlights out again. After that you can go in with opaque oils, or more colored pencil if ya want to tighten it up and harden some edges.

    Andy P's Sketch Book ((Updated Oct 25)) The Richmond Zombie Walk

    I don't really use the technique anymore, don't really know what made me wanna do this last night. Anyway, hope it helps at least somebody.
    And one piddly new page...

    Very nice, thanks, never heard of that technique before!
    2 questions though, does lifting out the highlights mess up the kneaded erases (so should I use an old one or something) and do you prepare your illustration boards (gesso) beforehand or just use the crystal clear it?

    Painting came out real nice, seems like a real good way to build up the skintone.

    Andy, sorry I haven't stopped in to issue some major props to you lately but you're definately deserving, bro. Please don't stop and just continue to bring the pain! And paint... heh, I love your oils and really hope to see you push some of this stuff further. Loose, confident brush strokes that really capture the essence of the figures and such. Very great stuff. Thanks for posting that technique in the last one too, the oil washes. I learned something similar this semester from my illustration professor. Very cool technique. Are the little scrapes in the paint and such done with pencils? How are you getting these effects?? It's very nice. I hope to see more finished work from you soon, man!! Inks look clean and beautiful as usual. I wish I had half the talent you have and half the line confidence that you have. Brilliant stuff. Are these from photos or from your heads? They're a delight to look at, man. Beautiful. Keep posting. Your just one of the many guys I was hoping to meet in MTL but I don't think you're going are you? Damn. Heh. You've inspired this boy to draw today! Lucky I've got the new Tool to push me as well! Ha! Take it easy, man.

    Sweet, the ol' CF payne method... you handle it really nicely, her face is really beautifully done. My only gripe is the ear, the hole's super dark and the ear doesn't have the TLC the rest of her face does. An easy fix would be to paint her hair over it, it might help unify the shapes in the composition more too. The spots of the yellow ochre-ish color in the shadows are great, very subtle and noice. Yooooouuuuu are the chaaampion my frieeeeend

    Really cool tecnique I gotta try it out some day, soon,
    the inks looks as sharp as ever, I really like how you
    deform reality, and at last I agree with cotron critics,
    the ear could use some luv
