Cool painting!!!!! Totally cool!!!! Thumbs up
jkior - Thanks man...yeah deadlines are definitely a good thing to give yourself for sure. You don't need deadlines cause you are working 24-7 heheh...You dead lines will be..."If I do anymore I will be dead" hehe
vctr - Thanks for the info on the dvds. I have to fly out of state soon so I am going to wait for the bridgman thing until then. I figured sitting on a plane would be a perfect time to copy the whole book...pity the person sitting next to me hehe.
metalwinds- Hey man long time no see! Your words are too kind my man...way too kind. I appreciate it. I think in the future I want to paint both fine art images and also illustration/concept stuff. I am using these still lifes as a way to build up a body of work so that I can sell through a gallery, etc... I also am trying to build up my concepting skills but I have no training in that area so I am pretty far behind. But I'm trying hehe. I'd love to do both one day professionally...that's my goal at least. How are things going for you man...still kicking some serious butt i would assume!
Capprotti - The devil tried to take my soul and I killed him with a sharp piece of charcoal heheh. But seriously thanks so much for the kind words. I'm not even close to a master yet though...Talk to me in 25 years and then MAYBE hehe.
shyamshriram - I am always shocked when people look through this whole ridiculous thread hahaha. Especially at that crap in the beginning heheh. Hey man...much respect back at ya...no one that looks at your hand drawings can say you can't draw...that's what I'm talkin about.
fooxoo - Thanks!
sorry for the crappy pic...I'm abandoning this now...if I work any more on it I will damage it even more I fear hehe...on to the next. I spent so much time on one image at the atelier that I am trying to find a balance now...so we'll see where I end up.

Hey, MCM, going strong as always. Lovely stuff wirh each new post.
I myself am getting closer to the day when I start drawing again. Not that much till then, I've been concentrating a lot on graphic design lately and still have some things to sort out before that.
But it's not long now
Keep it up.
amazing work mindcandyman, amazing paintings, very inspirational thread, cheers
Oh my, I was leafing through your sketchbook just now, and I have to say: You made some serious progress from the first pages!! Keep making art!! I love your works!
Hey just looke through this thread an I'm loving it.. really shows had work can get you really far..
Your oilpaintings are amazing, ust starting to experiment with oil myself but have alot of trouble with finding the riht colors and saw your color chart exercise.. Would be great if you wanted to through them a little more detailed.. For example, do you have a system for each hart for what colors you blend into each square? hope you get what I mean.. Really think doing charts like that would help me alot..
Keep up the great work man!
veeeeery nice result. . .I think something is strange with the way the wood is handled, particularly on the left side. . .probably just the lighting. But that's unimportant really in the final painting I think - absolutely stunning!
mmm. . .maybe it's that too much of the wood is illuminated. . .hard to say. . .hehe I have no clue what I'm talking about.
ps. on the self-portrait. . .it's still a little rough but the likeness is nearly perfect - very nice! hehe j/k it actually is cool
shit man you really kick yerself up some levels, its all great!!
started doing the oils myself, i suck but its so fun^^ hopefully il be able to paint like that someday, have a good one
Self-improvement is masturbation, Self-destruction on the other hand....
You're the meaning in my life
you're the inspiration.
You bring feeling to my life
you're the inspiration.
No but for real dude. You progress is just awesome. So awesome. Your hard work and dedication is the reason that I started a sketchbook thread here. When I look at the hard work you've put in it makes me feel like a lazy ass. Truely inspiring!
