    maldrin: thanks! it means a lot to me that you actually want it for something it's still got a bit to tinker with, I'm gonna paint a bit more on it tonight... it's oils w/ an acrylic underpainting... I've been having fun with it. I'll scan up a highrez version for you when it's done. Here's that sketch I did of you at IHOP:

    cody! nice work bro. that painting looks good. ..im still very new at painting (ive only done one, and that was yesterday), but i have a couple of crits. first, anatomyically, there should be a highlight on his right pectoral. ..not a very pronounced highlight, but there should be one. also, id like to see some highlights put on the stitches. the ribs are off, but they dont really bother me. ..they just look abstracted. i wanna see this painting in person dammit. .. then i will give you a better crit and more praise.

    the pen work is definitely improving.. . .i really like how youre starting to render some of them.. .definitely good for you. i love the picture with the 3 people sitting (the 3rd image). .. very nicely done. this update makes me want to lifedraw. .. .time for another self portrait.

    btw, OILS FUCKING OWN! me and chris are each about to start a 20 x 30" painting. ..may as well jump right into it. ..should be a very good learning experience. now, i need to find a really good reference...

    what up fellow "tron". It was cool hanging out with you and the rest of the posse in Texass. I'll always remember drolling over the hot models alongside the cotron.

    nice sketches man, i think the one of maldrin in my favorite, but the oblio/ninja sketch is pretty dead on.

    i also see that a pic of my mug has been posted... some how i knew that after you took it.

    keep it real on the streets. -steak

    cody, good to see some stuff man. the sketches are fun especially the pen sketches from life. the painting is really fun to look at. i just noticed what danny said but i was going to say that when i first looked at it i noticed that his right pec needs a hint of light. thats all. otherwise it is a lot of fun, i really like the color. aight man

    great stuff cody, you're improvement with each post is awesome. YOu also seem to be a lot closer to finding that balance between refinement and looseness that you were looking for.

    Goodluck with the last half of the academy!

    Oh, and where did those ninja words from oblio come from? It wasn't you who wrote it.... it wasn't oblio.... it must be a mystery.....hrrrrmmmmmmmm.

    First off, a more finished version of the painting above...the picture still funks it up, but it's hard to scan with the 3d nails on the piece..

    hope you dont mind, but i did a quick paintover in PS to show you what i meant:

    cotron's visual buffet || 3.19 || procrastuhnation/mastuhbation

    the way you have the lighting on his shoulder and chest (in the painting you just posted), there would have to be another light source above his head. ..shining only on his shoulder and the top part of his chest. .which is somewhat confusing because those are the only 2 areas that the lightsource is illuminating, and that source seems random and unnecessary because there is another lightsource (the one shining below and onto his torso). anyway, hope this helps some.

    ive been painting, but i dont have a digital camera, so i ll have to borrow chriss and then post what ive done so far. ive done one still life painting and im working on a referenced piece of a woman right now

    peace buddy

    Cotron - this is great stuff, and like I said, the goons at work don't get it. They asked me to put my Naomi Watts wallpaper back. She's hot to look at, but she's also my wallpaper at home - so my work peeps have to deal some NIN inspired fun. If they don't like it, welll..... :machinegu

    thanks for posting the sketch of me. the wife got a kick out of seeing it again, and I'd not seen it. One might think my hair wasn't that f'd up - but it really was.

    your other work is coming along nicely - the life drawing stuff really paying off. your hatching is nice, and when you try you really seem to "nail" things.

    Try take a bit more time with some of your drawings even more often than you are and try to really see - especially with pen work...you may feel stilted sometimes, and it will take time to find the right mix of "free" and "tight" drawing (god knows I haven't found it) but you'll benefit from it, I think.

    Keep up the good work!

    maldrin- hey, glad you like the wallpaper that's really flattering. and thanks for the comments, I'm trying to spend more time on my sketches...

    I just did this piece for shits and giggles, a "Slice of Life" of Richmond, my current hometown, pretty much el coro's method but with an oil wash at the end to change things up for myself:

    cotron's visual buffet || 3.19 || procrastuhnation/mastuhbation

    I just noticed how jacked this composition is.. oh well.

    Here's a bunch from the life drawing @ the academy, each in the range of 5-10 secs to about 2-5 minutes a piece...George Pratt's method, which is like bootcamp, but really turns on the intuitive side of drawing.

    nice man, i like that top picture a lot, the graffiti on the wall looks really good..

    i like your style a lot, the loose look to your sketches is nice.
