    Hey, thanks for visiting my humble sketchbook Listing! I'm honored to have a you giving me your encouragement! Sorry I couldn't reply right away, as I was down with the flu.

    So needless to say, I think you got great stuff here, some of your stuff looks really artistic and I think it's great that you're sculpting too! That's one thing I really should find the time to explore as well haha.

    So, thanks again man!

    I don't like the Aeneid (at 441 & 443) as much as the Crime and Punishment at 435. Is that Porfiry and Razumihin talking to Raskolnikov about his article? Haven't read the book in a while, but the scene does seem to come alive. I think the positive and negative space and form definition are better there and I think it is partly because of the very dark darks (against light lights) coupled with internal line in the figures that makes the difference. Passages of the Aeneid don't seem to be coming to me with the same clarity and I'm just looking at those illustrations as general drawings and trying to figure out what I am looking at. Maybe it is because the C & P negative space dark areas hover more around the edges and make it more like a traditional framed in view fixing attention toward the figures.

    You are drawing very well and this is all I can come up with to pick at things. I hope it helps.

    The giant on the wall makes me think of Goya.

    Those inks are fantastic. The watercolor stuff is coming along nicely as well. Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. Sorry for taking so long to respond. Keep up the good work. Take care.

    re

    You been amping up on those watercolors. The Rodin study a few pages back I'm digging. I'm not really feeling the last Sargent Study, but the contrast is there. Keep posting those sculptures are neat.

    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    Thanks for all the comments, guys, sorry for responding so late. Thank you especially for critique. I've been missing that service on these forums. So, some recent work. Been doing a lot of experimentation and I don't think it's paying off yet, one hopes for fall. Also, since I'll probably be working in much more a fine arts vein, apart from technical criticism, I'd take comment on impact, freshness - that sort of aesthetic quality.

    linoleum block cuts

    Great to see you posting again, Miles

    As far as your works go, I think I know what you are trying to achieve. I like the watercolor studies and the selfportraits (you could've guessed that ) The second linoleum cut also stands out for me. In general i think your works could use more definition, in some of them I absolutely don't know what's going on, e.g. in the first linoleum cut of the newest post. Also your works from imagination have many "unnecessary" lines, not supporting the flow or the readability. But maybe that's what you want to? Is it the ambiguousness you like so much? I hope i'm not to harsh or totally wrong, I'm curious about how your view of things will develop in the future.

    You're hard at work here, I see.

    I miss some definition, but there's improvement to see. I'd like to see you get a little out of "your box" though, go for stuff you've never done before

    It's always nice to see traditional watercolors and charcoals on this site. Very pleasing to the eye. The last one is a bit disturbing...animal corpses...blech :-)
