"Let it BURN"
Gah been too long wihtout an update, AND I don't have much to show for it... I been kinda lazy the past week, but I needed the lounge time I guess. Art slumps suck. Back to drawling..
chris- thanks man, much appreciated.
pen sketches from da beach-
and just some ink wash junk from ref-
thanks for lookin
Ooooooooh. I really dig the line quality in your inks cotron miles. Especially the hip hop cat lovin pic. The Joe Strummer ink wash is also veeeeeery nice.
We don't have a beer smiley anymore?!?!?! oh well this'll have to do
haha, hiphop cat lovin' is awesome.
Everything I said before agian, great lines. I like the weight variation with the thin lines. The washes are a nice touch too.
I can easily see your work in a society of illustrators annual in a few years.
-Peace in the Middle East (huh?)
groover, steak, joe- thanks guys
just a quick update so my sketchbook doesnt totally die out.. I have more stuff but I havent had time to scan yet...soon though.
anyway, a cover I just finished drawing for my friend's band... doing the back cover and the text layouts tomorrow. (and yeah, theyre very politically correct)
nice that album cover is sweet looking, simple and graphic and effective
I'm really digging that cover too, very stong... but, knowing you and your print work, do you have the back half or inserts somewhere for us to looksee, or did they not give you that task?
Anyway, nova is depressing. I miss all you guys at school. How's richmond treating you and the e-tron?
someguy, jackal- thanks guys, I'm glad you like the cover
joe- I'll call you up sometime soon, see what's up with ya. As for the cd, I'm doing the back cover right now.. somewhat less involved, more about the typography and all stuff.. but i'll post it when I'm done. word bee, your 3d stuff is looking cool!
just some sketches:
Amazing progress ~ you are getting better almost daily!
mentler- it nice to hear someone say that, I don't notice much change at all.. seems like I'm regressing a lot more often ... thanks, I appreciate it. thanks for the link to the sofa forums, too.
back of that cd from above, just whipped it up tonight:
model session gestures
kids in class
some more crayon, on newsprint... trying to focus on tone, composition
that cd back is incredible man, seriously, perfect style and look to it.
I also really really like that last model page, the tonal one.. you really captured the gesture of that pose on the left.
Those two stand out the most for me this batch.
I'm not digging the red-buttocks too much... looks like it could have been a fairly big drawing. I heard an interesting trick a while back you might get a kick out of; draw with vine charcoal and draw the entire pose in less than a minute.. shorter/quicker the better. Then, since it's vine, take some napkins and wipe it all off, leaving a ghost of the image. Then, try drawing the image on top of that with whatever your medium is.
I've heard it helps you decided which marks you actually think about, which ones are instinctive, which ones do something, which ones don't and all that jazz... Haven't done that trick in years..but it helped me a lot way back when... hurm... maybe I should go back and give it a try myself..
Anyway, excellent work overall, and thanks for giving them differing file names this time!! Keep it coming, dude!
man, i havent dropped by here in awhile. great stuff dude, you're coming along nicely. i really like those ink washes, they have tons of mood. also the CD cover stuff is awesome. is that who i think it is lying on the beach towel...?
Whatever the mind of a man can conceive and believe it can achieve.
sikkcorey- haha thanks man, and no, it's just some random girl on the beach.. e-tron was in richmond while I was beaching it up.
joeness- thanks, and yeah, I agree the butt one is the weakest in the post.. I guess I'm partial to it because I did it in like 3 minutes, and I can look past the shitty shading...fooling myself, heh
mattern- thanks bro
not much, just a pen doodle page, while watching the debate on tv tonight (the world is fucked, fyi):
The world is fucked, feels like we're all up shits creek...
but enough about that.
Your work has a great graphic appeal, this pops out more with each post. I really dig it. It also works well with just tone, like that red crayon pic, especially the foot.
That last page wins man, I've been drawing politicians lately too.
"heroin chick" and the debate doodle rock. You're right, the world -is- f'd up. great pictures of how skerry BOTH candidates are.
your figure work is rocking, but your pens are really kicking ass...
d a v i d p i n e
steak- thanks man, I've always been attracted to graphic art...be it design or drawling, I guess it's just showing up in my sketches. politicos are fun to draw, I agree... they tend to stay on screen longer than on the other shows too damn short attention span generation
intern- word bee
maldrin- thanks bro, hope you and the wife are doing well
in chronological order:
sketches in my horrible research paper class-
drew this in the chinese restaurant while the virginia conceptart kids were waiting to meet up-
did this tonight while watching starwars, scanned a bit too dark..goauche-
wow cody, excellent couple of pages you've got there.. I never did get to see what it was you were doodling; I was too busy eatin' I guess, but it came out nice looking; in particular that one quick sketch of the guy and his kids at the cashier.
The state fair page looks exceptional as well.
By the way, what did you think of shaun of the dead... did you see what game they were always playing?
wow, i really like that last one. i think it s my new favorite from you. very cool to meet you and flip through your sketchbook.
dude watcha talking about bad??/
your a definite influence on line work for me cody, i love the contours and you seem to have a great confindence in each line u make. your color work, needs to push its values more, crayons are a cute touch but you got the drawings better with a thinner line. your rendering is getting very good, you got nice contrasts in there
wow dude. that latest goauche is awesome. i love the way you handled the lighting. i agree with flex, that's my new fave too. keep kickin arse!
Whatever the mind of a man can conceive and believe it can achieve.
Seems like your in the zone! The kind of floating feeling when you seem to tap your subconscious and good things happen!
joe- thanks bruddah... and shaun of the dead is great! they enjoyed their timesplitters as well.
flex- thanks man, nice to meet you too... next time I'll hang out for more than 15 minutes.
imglue- thanks man, I use the crayons because I have to break up what I'm doing or I'll get tired of just the pen/pencil stuff.. theyre caran dache crayons, not crayola...just a really nice feeling tool to draw with.
mentler- that's the best, the creative high... the time warp
stuff from sitting in on george pratt's class-
and some coloring fun from the coloring book thread-
