    That portrait of your pops is excellent. I like how the perspective on the glasses and the rendering just make it jump off the page. Looks as though the Nerdrum studies have been really helpful :.

    I also like the one of your dad, just because it's showing what a more developed piece looks like from you, and I like this one http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h1...ksgesture9.jpg. Sweet stuff, I'd like to see some more oils. I think you'd really like it if you learn the medium.

    Wow. Like the latest water color self portrait.
    Inks are strong and impressive. Can
    I ask what your mode of stroke direction is. That is what determines which way the lines go an a particular area?

    oh.. what to say here? the evolution throughout the pages is touchable and the finesse of the lines disguised as agression is beautiful.

    the watercolours are especially good.

    congrats man.

    Thanks to all.

    Blueseverin - I plan on getting back into oils

    Fireflower - I try to follow form, lines become thicker and more frequent in darker sections. I think the idea of hatching is netting form.

    very inspiring gestural pencil work. i think you rushed a little bit on the latest pen drawings.

    Love the portrait of your dad. New watercolors are also looking much better. Fine art fundamentals -> conceptual is the way to go, i wish i had started that way. I'd like to see some enviros from life or imagination done in your awesome gestural style, it would add a little more variety Keep up the great work.

    Hey there man Thanks for dropping by my book!
    You sure have improved since page 1 Just like the rest of the guys here I'm digging that watercolour-portrait a lot! It shows a lot of life!
    Your pen-stuff is cool as well, nice style ^^

    Keep it up!

    ( Btw, have you ever tried to paint a fully rendered painting with watercolour? )

    Again, thanks for the responses and the good words.


    Fishspawn - I think I'm going landscape painting this week. I'll be tending towards environments.

    Zynic - I haven't rendered anything fully but I've thought about experimenting with underpainting (in watercolors). I'll have something up eventually.

    them watercolors are improving with each new post. I love the weight in that last figure study. the watercolors complement the line and vice versa.

    Are you sure you're 17? Can i come over and break your fingers?

    Love the pen renderings!
    Do you have something finished in some other section of the board?

    The watercolors are outstanding.

    I'm so sorry for the obscure.

    Jason and Justin - Thanks guys. I think a well maintained sketchbook (conceptart.org) is perhaps the most important field of study.

    Amishcommy - Thanks for the compliment. Next comment, please give me a clue on how to achieve that heavy vibrancy you're painting in.

    Bard and Jake - I'm taking a little more time on these recent watercolors (hope it's apparent). I'll get to some more compositional pen work. Thanks.

    Goddamn dude let the rest of us catch up!

    Stunning updates as per usual, the watercolour and pen studies are on a whole new level, qute beautiful.

    I think the stilllifes are still the weakest of your strongsuits in their lack of definition/wateriness, especialy compared to the last few portraits.
    Shit I gotta get the dust of my watercolour set and do something with it (no watercolours done since october )

    Thanks, you two.

    Sirgreensock - I know what you mean on the still lifes. But even as they lack definition, I feel they're a little more bold than the figurative watercolors (because of care in getting a likeness). I'll be working to find a medium.


    Another one of my mom. It's a likeness but a totally flat use of the medium.

    I think it comes from getting comfortable and confident with your color pallet. If you look back at my sketchbook you'll see me being very monotone and reserved. Also, realizing that these are just studies and not the Mona Lisa will, hopefully, get you less attached to getting it perfect and let you be more adventurous.

    So i'm starting to realize what attracts me to the work of Kent Williams, George Pratt, Dave Mckean, Ashley Wood and the like. What attracts me to certain elements of my own work and what attracts me to your work. It's the abstractions and the mistakes we all make that develop into style and the confidence to leave those mistakes alone. It's funny most of the things i like about said artists are the things they have no control over. it's the sporadic things they do which can never truly be reproduced consciously. some of the abstractions happening in your most recent watercolors and the gesture studies would most likely be tightened up and sterilized if you had more time to work on them. I tend to do the same thing. Sometimes a small time limit is a blessing in disguise.

    keep them coming.
