Hey, my name's Jason. Got myself a sketchbook. Yep. Oh, I see you have one too. Well, fucking dandy. I'm 17, currently in my senior year attending Carver Center for Arts and Technology in Maryland. Most of this work here was done when I was sixteen. Perhaps some when I was fifteen. But nothing prior. Never anything prior.
Quick shitty self portrait I did on the tablet - I wanna say half an hour? I think it's kinda distended and fucked up, but I didn't much feel like going back in and fixing it.
I dunno. Some...guy.
Nancy (oil, 10 x 12)
Younger brother in a moose costume committing suicide. Did this a while ago, I think it was back in october? First quarter independant painting, oil on masonite, 3ft x 4ft if I remember correctly.
Self portrait, detail from a much larger image. Frankly, it was the best part of the painting, so I'll upload the larger version later.
Study from a Sargent painting, because Sargent is god.
Anyway, that's it for now. I'll upload some new stuff tomorrow. Feel free to tell me what you think, I'll check in here regularly.

Couple more things. First one's a WIP, play off of a Sargent painting. Just a figure reclining on some weird blue chair, I'll repost once the entire background's down. Oil on canvas:
This next one actually took me a while, worked on it on and off for about three weeks. Still don't like the way the hand off to the right looks, so disregard it if you will. Six-arm painting, oil on masonite, 2ft x 4ft. Second Quarter school independent:

Nice stuff, I really love the colors you're using and your values on the sketches. Unforunately, I think some of the paintings are a bit fuzzy on focal points and whatnot. On that last painting for instance, my eyes just kind of roam randomly among the colors, without much direction: "oh look! an arm...dissappearing into a background...look another one..is that a sword?..." etc.
Ahaha, thanks. I actually get told that a deal by my teacher - that my paintings just tend to roam. Granted, that last one was overall intended to be rather nebulous, it was more of an experimental thing than anything. I'm looking to try some works where I just focus in on the face hyper-realistically, then let the rest flow out from there.
And if it makes you feel any better Lentz, I'll be 17 in about two months.
Because everyone loves porcelain clowns:
And the grand old standby, the hand study page:
Did this a loooong while ago. Got a lot of shit for it - my friend told me it looked like I smeared my mouth with honey, like "pooh bear, but like. After a golden shower." The color's f'ed up for a reason, I'll leave it at that.
I. I don't know:
Painting of a small mountain in Hawaii (acrylic):
Alright. I'm sleepy; went to a pool party today. Yay. I'll be back tomorrow. Feel free to peruse and leave me comments. Or cheesecake, I will also gladly accept cheesecake.
Really fine. I need to paint. Twins we are, are we not(?) Where and how do you study? Given the similarity of our cosmetic circumstances we should chat. Portraits are great - expressive quality and all that. Only issue is that in both your paintings and drawings, the plane can get muddled with excess or abstract strokes. Are you planning on going to art school - if so, what are your prospects?
Lovely. The sketch of me is still my favorite, but maybe that speaks to my ego. You gotta take a slide of that piece you sent to scholastics, cuz thats your best painting to date. Anyway your linework looks nice, I blame you for my commitments here. Now I feel it necessary to do sketchbook stuff instead of the actual work I need to be cranking out.
But. Still. The drawing of me is nice. The sargent thing is nice too.
This is Sam Kipnes. He's so dreamy. He's got a big chin and is currently unfinished. I'll post the complete version tomorrow, but I'm too goddamn tired to do so tonight. Working with a 3pt brush on the tablet, taking forever. Gwaaah. Adult Swim time.
No tit or dong I'm afraid, tonight. Quick little dump, just a sargent study (which scanned really shitty, I'll take an actual picture of it tomorrow) and a small hand study. In keeping with tradition, no right eye! Oh, and that other lifesize turned out kinda shitty. Mneh.
Ruddy hell! I just looked at Carver's website- Can I room with any of you guys??? Seriously.... I go to an "arts" school, but it doesnt even compare... The art classes are actually worse than in the public schools.... Man... some kids get all the luck, eh?
And we certainly are never given teh chance to draw from live models...

Pixel - Hah. We have much better stuff than what's on that site, unfortunately. Our guy doesn't, er. Well he doesn't put stuff up. And, yeah. We are fucking lucky as hell XD. If I'd gone to my home school I'd be shit right now. Nude models in class ftw.
Dile - Only 14? You're stuff's pretty hot too, man.
