    @mcm: wow, i saw your development from the beginning (i went through your topic now) and you're a huge inspiration for me. i'll try to do the same, but i have a small question: how much time did you spent on selfportraits or other sketches at the beginning? is it good to do sketches slowly (i take more than 10 mins for a cup)?

    If you get some paintings up in VA? I'll drive to see the show, for sure. That's VERY exciting. Keep up the great work, and look forward to seeing the landscape finished. (Take your time tho)

    You are truly amazing! I sat down one day and looked through all of this thread and I can't believe my eyes! Being a "rookie" artist myself, you are truly an inspiration to me as well as many others, I'm sure. Your dedication to your art and determination to make it work is definantly paying off, and I'm glad everything is working out so well for you. I can't wait to see where you will be in the future; no doubt it will be in an excellent place.

    Pantura Studios looks like an amazing school. From what I've seen and read, it looks like they strive to help their students in any way possible. Considering they only take five students, they must have seen your potential from the start.

    Keep up the excellent work, and I hope to hear great news from the show in VA when it takes place. It sounds like an amazing opportunity!

    Sok N. Wett - Thanks man. Tell your friend he can learn it just takes hard work. Thanks again

    Zakk - Thanks. Speed is the last thing to come...don't rush any of your drawings at the beginning. A sketch that takes andrew jones 5 minutes will take me an hour probably. He has paid years of dues and night after night of drawing so now he is able to do things quickly. Worry about doing things right at the beginning...don't worry so much about speed at all...make it look good no matter how long it takes at this point...worry about precision...looseness and speed can come later. In other words...to render a cup (get the ellipses right and get all the shading right) 2 hours would not be a long time.

    stormy - Thanks! It would be cool to meet some of you...I will probably (by then) have a couple paintings on display and have a couple big cast drawings or cast paintings as well...probably like 4 to 5 pieces. It would be great to meet you!

    coriat - Coming soon hehe...thanks bud.

    brium - Thanks for looking through the whole thread...hope you had a cable modem! Pantura is awesome...it's a FANTASTIC place to study at...we get a lot of attention and the teachers are awesome at what they do plain and simple. Thanks again!



    Update coming soon guys...I have been working on a mural that I am painting at someone's house so I've been a bit busy...I will update soon...thanks for all the kind comments and thank you to everyone who reads all the way through this thread...it's amazing to think of people going all the way through it hehe. Your encouragement keeps me going...thanks!

    As soon as I can I will take a picture of the cast I have been working on as well as the painting...but for now some sketches:

    This was a really crude sketch I did while talking to someone...I wasn't even sure what I was drawing as I was doing it...I have some ideas to use it as a concept for a digital painting.


    This is a quick sketch of an idea for a painting I may do in oils over the next year sometime. I want to do it for the show in Virginia...it will be a scene of Ulysses leaving Troy (from the odyssey)...my ideas are still in their infant stages.




    some sketches

    Dude, nice job on indicating those wings! I really like that sketch. It has such a cool feel to it, and would make an awesome painting.

    I think you need to work on gesture a bit. All your drawings without ref look extremely stiff, like they were done piecemeal.
