Myxomatosis: UPDATE 11-01! Finally!
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.

It is true, what you have said about Sargent. Great sketches, I am really enjoying the loose but confident feeling. 16? wtffffff

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.

Yep. Lazy. I never put them in on sketches. Finished pieces, generally. Sketches, blaaaaaaargh.

16? Wow, i'm so shamed.
Really good work, dude. Them sketches are excellent, i was convinced the first one was pencil - you've got good tablet control.
The six-armed painting is wonderful. Keep it up.

Thanks for all your kind comments guys. You should see the guy in the third when properly rendered with all of his hair, Ksama. Generally speaking, it envelops his face.
And Mentler, coming from you, that's a fucking honor.
More stuff. I was bad today, only did a couple. Might repost a view later tonight. I'll start off with another porcelain doll:
A girl from National Geographic, whose legs I skillfully replaced with octopus tentacles. Octopussy (ohyeah):
And then some weird little sketches I did over a light picture of this girl who was sitting in front of me in study hall. You can barely make out the sketch of her:
Alright. I'll post more later tonight unless I fall asleep. Peruse at your leiiiisuuuuure.

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?
