uberlol stuff, your work is ... just uberlol
i can't believe i've never seen this thread before! really nice work!
Life is a long lesson in humility.
An impressive amount of work man.
I see you are in Seattle...why not drop by the local CA thread..would love to have ya come out and meet the handful of us that have been meeting every week or so..
I look forward to seeing your updates from here on....
Seattle Sketch Group Blog
this sb is awsome, I have a feeling I can learn a lot from you.
Loving the color choices and your sketches (especially the faces)!
lens flare renaissance
Jabo-Actually, I don't like how the brush strokes look, it feels too "digital"
S!R-Yeah I used to go draw at A/N Terminal almost every week, but things just got so busy, I kinda fell out of it. I'd like to get back on the life drawing wagon though.
Anurizm-You are free to try...
Koto Stomp-I'm tryin'
ronaldK-Thanks Ron. I just assumed you knew, this has been here for a while now.
So, I have been pretty freaking busy lately, but here are a few new things. I'm getting sick of something about my work, I'm itching for some change. We'll see what happens.
i like the arrangement of the hands in alot of your cartoon sketches. the ones from life are good too im just referring more to the fact that alot of people (including myself) dont know what to do with the hands or how to render them properly.... but dude you got it!
great stuff here ^^ i really like your concepts, any advice for a newbie like me??
nice updates, I like this SB a lot.
Thanks for sharing mate, learning a lot from yoyr stuff...
Wow this last update I like a lot. The 3 paintings are a sign of evolution I think. A little more solid yet still loose. The greener fern painting is a keeper I think. Showing a little bit of the different types of plants helps show where it is more. My favorite so far.
SkraTtch-Well... draw, draw, draw, like they always say. Balance your time between studying others and working. Study life, and draw from your head, as both will test you in different ways. Value your work, but also be completely willing to "let it go", since if you get too attached, you will be afraid to try something new. Oh, and live a healthy life, or else it's really all for nothing...
zweiDee, Hazart, ghoulio, MeTaL-Mike-...thanks all.
DoodlinDave-Don't make me come over there...
Hey man all'n'all everything is coming along nicely and theres consistant improvement. Re your sketch work.. I notice you put alot of time and energy into rendering which to a degree is great but ultimately if you want to do yourself a favour I think it'ss be best to invest perhaps even more time(for a while anyway) on simple line work. If you find you only enjoy looking at your sketches when rendered thats a sure fire indication that that don't hold their on prior to some candy coating.
Just my thoughts
dude ur fuckin good!!!love the SB!
pld: NEED CRITIQUE! But BEWARE your Eyes might BLEED OUT of YOUR eye SOCKETS <---cause I really suck and haven't done shit pld:
My Sketch Book!
brilliant work! really solid faces and heads (which im trying to work on at the moment)...plus love your digital stuff! really cool lighting etc
whats going on John, how are things going, nice updates, remember you showing me the flies and your poster. Sorry I haven't been online in awhile, been busy working on finals for school. Trying to get this stuff out of the way so I can work on other things. Overall nice updates, drawings and digis both.
Crit: The first figures lower legs arch back more than they should if you were going for human anatomy. The area where your bicep and forearm meet looks a little wonky. We should see the bicep recede down into the forearm, your forearm should connect from the tricep and overlap the bicep as it becomes the contour of the lower arm. I hope that makes since. Your drawing was really close but you lost the form and contour in your painting.
The last creature portrait, I think you can make it stronger if you make the eye the focus area by turning up the contrast a bit. you could make the eye a more saturated color, make it glow or something to the effect.
Keep up the great work.
These are cool, this last one being quite adorable.
Gotta say your enviros are very interesting. Great design sense in your shapes and color + lighting are to study in your pieces.
Greetings and salutations John T - it would appear as to my untrained eye that the elements of dynamic design and composition are finding their way into your works more and more, which is quite pleasing. I wait with both eager anticipation as well as reverent consernation as to the works thou shalt produce hence attending thy CA workshop. And remember, birds are really just futuristic miniature dinosaurs.
