    Damn John, you are truly on your way.....this is cool to watch. On your April 22nd post post there is a line drawing of a girl sitting....I'm assuming it's a life drawing? If so, I think you broke new ground in your life drawings with that one (as well as the less finished smaller one under it). It has a very definite sense of rythm and grace to it. You captured a little bit of the subtle beauty that most people are oblivious to. Neato!

    John, I am in awe of your brilliance. This stuff is AMAZING. I love your enviro paintings, They have been real inspiring to my own and opened my eyes to try new things. One thing though, I LOVE your rendering, especially when you do hair (omg). However, I think that when you do some things you go a bit overboard and render things for renderings sake. Like the girls face in the post above this, cool drawing, but a woman's face is very smooth and it would seem should receive barely any rendering if any at all, she kinda looks like she has a skin disease right now and looks real bummed about it. I know your going for a full value range and I would like to see how one would handle this. Amazing stuff though, I still can't get over your environments!!! I think I am gunna throw up this stuff is so amazing.

    PS - I'm still waiting for hold the mustard!

    fattkid-Hey, I hope I am on my way. But the more your eyes are opened, the more you see your own shortcomings. I guess that is just the way it is learning this stuff though.

    th3rd_sin-I think you just met your compliment quota for the year there Anthony. Serously though, I appreciate your good words. I will take into account what you say about the face, though I think part of it is the scan. I do not want to be the type to make my scanner a scapegoat, blaming it for genuine drawing issues, but I honestly will say it contributed in this case...

    Wow. Sorry I can't think of much to say, but I feel obligated to comment. Your black and white work looks so full and powerful, I love the picture you did of the tattooed guy with the knives at the top of this page. your poses are really dynamic! Really cool work!

    ChaoticKnight-It's funny becasue several people have mentioned that they like that knife guy. That was just a boredom induced sketch, I guess it just shows that good drawings come when they come.

    TheGnoll-Now that's a trifecta of comparisons, though I am hardly worthy of any of them. There is no denying that there are certain individuals that will have a big impact. All these MB guys are so good, so it's definitely worth exploring what they are all about. But I have to remind myself there are an infinite number of options out there. I am hoping that if I try to sample the range of all the things I like, even things I don't, it will lead to a place that has something unique in it.

    Dabaers-Hmm, I feel like a total slacker sometimes, thanks though.

    bbassir-Hey thanks Brian, but I am no master. No one becomes a master in 3 years, some things are just restricted by time, and there is no way around that.

    Camara-Haha, thank you I really appreciate the support.

    I'm speechless, your making amazing progress sir!! I'm really loving the new batch of work! your pencils skills has improved a ton. Wow, Man its been to long since I've been in here.

    One crit, the left hand of the creature on the second post looks a bit akward, It could be because the hand is a little wide, or the fingers seem to all be the same size, just being alittle nitpicky.GOod to see your book. I have to also think you for the really awesome crits you give in my sb. Your words are truely appreciated. Keep up the good work.

    Darktwin-Thanks for the speechlessness...Yeah things keep going. Agreed about the hand on that guy, I don't think I made it clear enough what the position was.

    Chermilla-Yeah I'm really trying to step up the painting, I have always sucked at color and value so I'm trying to fix that.

    mehran-Thanks

    archipelago-Yeah I took a little longer on that one then most. I often forget that it is a good idea to come back and work on a picture on a later day, so you can see it with fresh eyes.

    Epias-Thanks. Painting has always been my bane, so I am trying to get it up to par. Yeah I usually try to very loosely gesture out stuff before finalizing anything. Often though I like to hit some committed marks right away. If they are wrong I just erase them, but I like this method since it really disciplines you. The most important part of a drawing are the very first stages, so it is good to get those solid and have a good foundation to build on.

    RaistlinTheDark-Sweet.

    Camara-Hey double thanks for dropping in again.

    Lone Wolf-Thanks

    Couple more paintings, and a gif, since a few people have asked about some process stuff. If you feel there is a better way to approach stuff, please share.

    awesome sb pages dude! and the life drawings are sizzlin'. I wish I had a place to do more life drawings. That's what sucks about living in a small town.

    One crit: maybe you could add a bit more color into your skintones, take a look at some sargent, bouguereau etc. Good stuff to learn from. Keep truckin!
