    Thanks Eyton. I'll see how the big one turns out.

    The first oil is from 3 weeks ago (got covered in charcoal and smudged). The second from last week.

    This still life besides being hotly messed is of three white/off-white objects against a white background without any specific lighting (that is my last encouragement).

    I have wondered around your sketchbook for some time now, wanting to say something, but can't find the proper words. I guess I have to go with
    "your work is great! I really love the linework in the heads"
    althought these pieces deserve more

    You show lots of talent. I like some loosenss in drawing to a certain degree. You might want to refine your work. Anyway i'm curious on how you are going to progress here.

    Nice stuff. I really enjoy the doll studies, pretty creepy but i probly just have a doll thing. especially those lifelike dolls *shudder*. I especially like the looser work like some of the pen studies, gestures, and more expressive charcoal work as well as that last sketch in oil. Keep up the good work. Holy crap i just saw how old you are, thats when i first got serious about drawing. please try to take it easy on me, chief.

    Bartovan - I know, I do need to tighten up. I too am curious as to how all this study is going to turn up in future art work.

    Murderclaus - Thanks for the comments and recommending my thread. Great encouragement. Keep moving.

    I was very tired today, so these weren't very concentrated.

    Hey man. Thanks for stopping by my horrid little corner of the internet I refer to as an SB! I'm liking your cross hatching, I think I'll be looking over those for quite awhile! And alot of your paintings give meaning to the "form without line" saying, Really nice stuff!

    I just returned from a weekend vacation in Mexico. I have pieces to post but my camera's down. I'll have that up soon on. I've been interested in working digitally; what would you recommend for a good setup that simulates physical oil painting?

    So, here's some work from Mexico. Even though I like the expressive element, I think my work is beginning to fall apart, it's so loosely bound.

    Two sketches of my brother sleeping.

    My brother and sister on a promontory. Two sketches of fisherman on that same promontory.

    Sweet stuff man. You're definitely getting more accurate in your drawing. Your stuff is pretty loose, and a great way to take it further would be to tighten up certain areas to draw focus, then you have your loose expressiveness and it looks like a finished piece. Also, think about edges. All the edges between your shapes are the same softness. Use hard edges where you see them. Concentrate on putting down a few really dark darks (almost black, but still color) and lighter highlights in certain areas. Again, put them where you want to draw focus. Your color pieces are sweet, but they seem to have a limited value range. Nice gestural stuff though.

    Missed out on some damn excellent progress! Paintings look great!

    Only two somewhat major crits are that you gotta work on your edges and contrats. The edges of form are often unreadable, and although this can get nice results in a single figure drawing, one you get more figures and a background in there you lose all clarity and focus in the painting. Contrast-wise the paintings are pretty flat looking in terms of value (not colour, colours look great), that could be pushed more.

    Keep up the awesome work dude!

    Blueseverin - Thanks. I am losing (or not developing) value and edge definition, especially in painting, which I've been approaching on mass almost exclusively. I've been told by a painting teacher too; I'll work to apply it. Also, in the following drawing, only a beginning, I've started to delineate focus at the middle bust's eye. I'm going to work on this general clarification in drawing and then reapply to painting.

    SirGreensock - Glad to have you back. The paintings are flat. With all the stray, expressive line my value is starting to lay flat and symbolize instead of describe form. I'm keeping at it.

    So, here's the beginning of a drawing of three horse busts. I'm sorry for the invasive shadow. But it is the preliminary.
