I'm moving back to Guilford, BC in September...maybe we should meet up. Anyways, keep up the kickass work and would love to see something finished from you. I know you can make something really kick ass. Later!

    Edit: Opps, I thought you we're in Richmond, BC not Richmond, Cali. Hahha stupid me.

    White Rose- Thanks, he dug it. Ya know, we liberals like that guy.
    MattGamer- Thanks man, I appreciate it!
    maxetormer- Glad ya like it dude, happy to oblige. It's funny how the really quick stuff tends to work out well.
    this1- Thanks, I couldn't remember, but I think it was Heathcliff that used to either dream about or be obsessed with fish bones. I was always confused, why would a cat only want the bones? Best not to think about it.
    That fat kid- Word, thanks a lot for the crit. You're right, I did kinda rush from the drawing to the paint a little too quickly. I knew there were problems with the eyes, just couldn't put my finger on it. Next time...
    Chandan- Thanks man, I'm tryin to work on some more finished stuff right now, it's just hard with work and other lame excuses. I'd love to get to Canada sometime, though. One of my favorite musicians, Devin Townsend, is from around Surrey. Sounds like an awesome place to be.

    A few new pages, workin on painting a cover for this particular sketchbook. That should be up soon.

    I really enjoy the sense of realism in your pics - the rendering is great! Keep up the awesomeness and take care

    I don't see what you're talking about... honestly. I took the portrait on Jon Stewart into photoshop and it looked pretty good, both mirrored and not. I think there are stylizations in Mr. P's drawings that are inherent to his drawings- and they give them the personality that they have. I think there's a big problem on this forum to over-analyze the work presented to the point that nobody is focusing on the important aspect of the imagery... so what if the arm is slightly longer on the left side of the body as opposed ot the right- it just turns into a pissing match.

    Look at Jon Foster, for example... his figures are extremely stylized for the most part, and lots of the time they're "incorrect" in the anatomical sense. The clincher is this- he's not doing them for medical textbooks, but to fit whatever story he's trying to convey. And he's really successful at it, in my opinion. In illustration, it's paramount that the mood/story/idea is put across, and one of the things I really like about the stuff Andy does is the personality injected into the work. So yeah, there's a bit that's not "right" here or there, but that's what makes the drawings interesting. It's really a matter of getting the right things right, and the rest follows.

    Ok, done with my lil rant about that, now to give the thread back to its owner- A lil crit- one thing that I feel is lacking in your po-trait work is the ears, it seems like they ain't getting the love & attention to structure that the rest of the head is... this crit might contradict the point I was just trying to make, but I feel like it's something that's detracting from the excellency of the rest of the job. They often feel like holes on the side of the person's head instead of the complex and interesting things that they are. It seems like a small thing, but it's important to the success of a portrait. I don't want to sound too critical, though, because I'm really enjoying everything that I've seen you make recently- just sharing an idea of what you might want to to look at while you're working next time.

    Actually, looking at the JS portrait again, the angle of the ear might be what's causing the funkiness, it looks a lil high on his head while the rest of the features don't follow the same angle... but I really didn't notice that at first, I saw the likeness and recognized who it was- good job on that! I only noticed the ear thing after looking at it for much longer than most people do. Maybe I'm just eating my words and nitpicking lil things like I was just advising that fat kid not to... haha... Anyway, hope this slightly drunk post monster makes sense, I really like the new sketches, especially the washy peeps on the bottom right of the second image.

    Hope things are goin well my fiend!

    Darktwin- Thanks dude, will do.
    BillyDead- Thanks as well, I'm gonna try.
    Matt Smith- Thanks!
    That fat kid and Cotron- Thanks hombres, I really do appreciate you guys taking such an interest in this piddly ol shite. I totally agree that there is a lot of wonkiness goin on in my drawing/painting, and not all of that wonk is good wonk. I'm always trying to "improve" my drawing but I don't really want to get rid of what makes it unique either, if it is unique at all. I guess it boils down to, I'm not so much trying to make my stuff look "right", but I don't want it to look "not right" either. Another way to say it is I like things to look off, as long as it's not distracting/unintentional. And there's stuff going on in that JS portrait that are distracting. Good point about Jon Foster, his stuff can be wonky, but it's always interesting, not distracting. I never look at his stuff and think "Oh, he fucked up that arm" or something.
    Soooo, I really do appreciate you guys pointing out what doesn't work. Like the ears, I hadn't noticed that I had totally written them off again in that painting. And the alignment of the face is something I definately need to keep in mind more when it comes to capturing likeness. Cheers ta ya both, this stuff is a big and inspiration, highjack anytime.

    Not much time to work lately, but had some fun yesterday doin this un. Has some problems (like that damnable face on the right), but it was fun. Value control was what I was thinkin about most, tryin to keep values close together and savin the dark darks and light lights for where I wanted the eye to go.

You definilty got the expressions right. I'm sometimes that guy with my eyes closed.

    Hey Andy, how's things? portraits looking great. there's a good vibe from the last painting you did, I don't quite see the eye prob though, seems good from me, but yeah.. I really love seeing your line work, but I think you could loosen up a little more on the line weights, you know give it some kick here and there. All your drawings very solid, I am nitpicking. cheers, Min

    dude, just chiming in to say that I'm keeping my eyes on you like usual. Totally awesome. I won't dare to interject Cody's or fat kid's comments, they're illustrators, not me. I totally love how gay everyone is for you. You're a god among gay men. And regular men I guess too. Keep it up, I'm glad to see this stuff.

    PS: You know that ozzfest lawn tickets are 20 dollars this weekend only right? You know that DragonForce is gonna be at Ozzfest, right?

    Are we going?

    great discussion, one that i often have with myself. the one that is re-reading and practicing basics, and the other one that is trying to make more expressive drawings. i think its cool to point out mistakes and i definitely learned a lot from reading crits, but i also totally agree that crits on CA often focus only on 'anatomy is off and so is the perspective' and it wouldbe cool to see similar interesting crits/discussions about the character of an illustration.

    sorry for hi-jacking even further...
    love the june 29 sketch pages man.

    That fat kid- Thanks man, I think that's all I'll do with that painting, agreed it could go places, but greener pastures beckon.
    Dile- Yeah man, thanks for viewin mine too. Being active is definately the key to getting better, but I don't know how active I really am...
    maxetormer- Yeah, after drawing it, I saw that the horse's front half was way bigger than the back half. Oh well. I had only intended on drawing the jockey in the first place tho.
    Darktwin- Hah, thanks man. I have very limited clubbing experience, and those right there are about the only moves I've got. White boys dancing...
    sith- Good to hear from ya again, man. Yeah, with this new bigger sketchbook I've been thinking more about the composition of the page.
    MattGamer- Thanks man, good to hear. No, no gel pens, though that's probably something I'd like to pick up. Right now, for the white parts, I just use FW ink and a brush.
    bumskee- Yo man, things is aight. The eye alignment problem is something I'm definately taking more notice of now, even if it's not so noticable. As far as line weight, you're right I do tend to keep it a lttile too uniform. I try and keep in mind that heavier line weights should accompany the darker sides though.
    DOOM- Yeah, I have long considered myself a GayLord. Good to see that even regular men turn gay for me in my presence. Too bad fellas... Anyway, good to hear from ya again.Update your sketch jams sometime. Also, yeah I'd love to go to Ozzfest, in theory. Seems like every year I wanna go becuase of a coupla bands on the bill, but never do. Strapping Young Lad are gonna be the self proclaimed "proverbial pubic hair in the cheese cake of this year's festival." Would love to see that. And Dragon Force. If you're gonna go, definately let me know.
    this1- Thanks for the kind words, man. That new painting isn't my new SB cover, though, that's still forthcoming.
    Joey Joe Joe- So you're not an Andy P stalker? Huh, so who's that guy outside my window? Hmm.
    tensai- Yeah man, I agree, that dueling crit session brought up a lot of good points, stuff I need to think aboot. Stuff I guess we all need to think aboot. Good to hear from ya again.

    Just a few new blings,

    Sir fisticuffs,

    Is that Wild Bill Hickock? The drawings on this page are kind of all over the place, but they're all quality work man...

    Something about the texture of the background... and the rxpression (the pharmecuetical reference was intentional, by the way) on that dudes face really creep me out... Does anybody know what happened to these poor homeless people? I think he does, but he's not telling anybody... unless you read his blog. ooooh creepy!

    The likenesses of the sheriff and the bar owner are spot on... for bobble heads that is. I'd hate to see him try to do situps with that wee little neck of his. Ha-ha!

    Man dude... you're doing some great work. and it's consistently good, and getting better all the time!

    and yes... you are a good dancer. Damn good.

    Your friend
    KC

    P.S. I'm not gay for you...
    You can choose to use your powers for good... or you can use them for AWESOME!

    Whoops, didn't mean to let two weeks go by between updates, but a lot of stuff's been goin down lately. Quit my job at the frame shop, lookin for design gigs around Richmond, lotsa other junk and stuff. Anywhoo, Page 4!

    Groover McNab
    - Thanks man, yeah the toned books are a ton o fun.
    That fat kid- Yo man, nah the white is FW acrylic ink, that stuff is the shit. Good luck with the erectile solutions, I have every confidence in you.
    masterpug- Thanks man, I'll keep it up.
    kingcoyote- Thanks duder, yeah I was watchin a lot of Deadwood at the time. Too much, one might say. It got to the point where every thought I had was punctuated with either 'mother fucker' or 'cock sucker'. Time to watch somethin more wholesome. And thanks for the dancin props, every bit helps.
    Burning Eyes- Thanka, hope you enjoy.
    this1- I'm gonna keep at it, thanks!

    Haven't had a whole lotta time to draw, but I have managed to finish out my white sketchbook. These are the last eight pages. So I'll probably be postin mostly toned stuff for a good while, til I get a new moleskin or somethin. I need to get this update in now before the new Brisco County JR DVD set consumes my life.
