    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:

    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.

    damn cody there are really nice ones in here.. the pissing guy cracks me up. Feels like he's really aiming his piss at something. hahaha. I'll hang on to the sketch of yours in my SB just in case you get big someday.

    I especially like the contour studies. Rock on bud

    awesome stuff bro. I'm glad I met you in austin, you're one funny guy. I was laughing the other day when I was thinking about you teasing meta. Great sketch work. The coro technique is coming a long way, i think its pretty decent. pump out 50 more and you'll be doing it smoothly.

    sweet set of updates cody. Love the one on the lower right on the orange paper. The lines that define her profile, beginning of her back, and shoulder are damn near perfect.

    Oh man, that painting of the pissing dude is great! The texture of that door is awesome, with the graf and rust, really well done. Some nitpicky crits, the bricks perspective seems to be off a little bit and some parts of the wall looks a little bright. But man, that's a cool painting.

    I love these quick drawings too, especially the one on yellow paper, really confident lines.

    cody, I'm liking that last batch of figures. I think the first is my favorite. Curved lines make the ladies look sensual. I like that painting with the nails too, but i think the marks are a little soft (if this makes sense) dont be affraid to make some jagged edges, more like you did in the pissing painting. Also the teet (pec) to our left seems like it could be stretched more,since the arm is thrown back, bringing the nipple up.
    keep rocking the cradle, great work.

    7-21-04 Update

    comments I neglected from before

    nmcleod- thanks, the graffiti in it was the most fun to do, actually..

    kazz- haha yeah hang on to that sketch, you might run out of t.p. sometime... but thanks for the comments, I appreciate it

    jetpack- thanks, this technique'll be played with more... it's super fun. glad I met you too.

    troy- thx

    hito- thanks man! i really don't know what i'm doin, these thigns just happen sometimes :fruit:

    groooooover- thanks, yeah the perspective suffered from my lack of patience... I just threw the shit down, and it looked all funky after I finished, good lesson on taking a little bit of extra time..

    meta, metal- thanks so much guys, it really keeps me going to hear that.

    steak- yeah, the nailed painting is lacking a certain something, edge variance/texture is probably what it is... and yeah, my lack of anatomy knowledge is apparent

    so- for an update... I been trying to turn my doodles into little compositions, putting down a few boxes in my sketchbook, then drawing in them when I go out... plus some random stuff from the last week of the academy:

    wowowowow. That painting is awesome, sir. :clapping1 wow. i did oil for the first time yesterday, so my respect for anyone who can make anything look like something has increased about 100milliontimesover. :chug: keep working on the inks. when you're good, you're really good. now to just be consistant. can't find anything too smart to tell you.

    here, have some encouragement: rock your sketchbook some more!
