ash888: I'm 22, and in my 3rd year of the BFA program at a state university in Maine. Right now I'm taking my 2nd semester abroad in germany...but the classes still aren't very beneficial. The things the school offered that I was interested in, aren't being offered this semester...and yadda yadda Well, there is one good class that I'm taking.
tops to keeping at the posemaniacs~ i cant deal with the jagged edges on all the figures, i am such a wimp. i'm sure you know this by now, but it's always snazzy carrying those matchboxes around to offer lights to people ~ gets come hither looks and intrigue quite rapidly sir. quite rapidly indeed. keep it real in germany and just dont end up in any basements!
These tight-shot portraits are sweet. I especially like how you work the monochrome really well but still work in some other, more subtle hues. The fact that they're on matchboxes makes it all the more impressive. Those fashion sketches are great, too. Is there some resource you're getting these ideas from, or do you just have good clothes sense? I'm always trying to come up with good modern-day outfits but they're always so basic.

Getting through the internet, one kitten video at a time.
all those poses/gesture drawings are really great, and I particularly like the recent refined character studies as well. Do you find it easier to capture values using all grey tones first rather than just starting out in color? I know there are different ways of doing it, and I was never sure which is better/easier/more accurate.
the matches in the matchbook faces look like teeth... gives them a really cool creepy quality.
