    Hey guys

    Hey guys thanks so much for the encouragment I really appreciate it! My dad always told me that the plodders are the ones that win. So that's what I am doing...just plodding along drawing every day. I figure...the more hours I spend doing it...the more mistakes I make...the better I will become and the quicker I will get there. My wife has been really supportive by allowing me to sketch and paint into the wee hours of the night...not to mention doing virtually everything around the house and working...she is too awesome for words. At any rate thanks so much guys...this kind of positive feedback helps me be motivated to move forward and draw even more! Thanks again for the encouragement! You guys are the best!

    :electric: :trippy: :flower: :ep:

    Here the latest stuff.

    This is a self portrait inspired by the style of "Blackhawk" in the guest self portrait gallery. I think this is the closes likeness to myself I think I have achieved so far.

    Attachment 92212

    This is a stream of consciousness that I did for the "stream of consciousness" speed painting thread.

    Attachment 92213

    This is another one of my ongoing value studies hehe.

    This was actually something really funny. Since it is Halloween people are dressing up and all...I saw this guy waiting for a train and he looked hilarious...a business man with this briefcase bag thingee and glasses wearing this bizarre outfit...I had to sketch him.

    Here is the stuff from November 1st through the third.


    I did this as a surprise for my nephew for Christmas...I am going to frame it and give it to him. He really likes Rolie Polie Olie so I painted it for him hehe. If you know my nephew don't tell him or his mom (my sister) hehe!

    Attachment 92218

    Some self portraits. The last four are total crap...sorry I had a really hard time this weekend.

    This first one was for Andrew in the guest self portrait thread...I tried to do something unique.

    Attachment 92219

    These two were frustration pics...I couldn't get it right so I drew myself fat. I saved that one and moved on to the next one which you see right after it. Really frustrating.

    Attachment 92220

    Attachment 92221

    These last two were last night's.....ARRRGGGHHHHHHH talk about frustration...the first pic is step one and the second is the crappy final result. Looks absolutely nothing like me...stupid frustrating drawing.

    This one was done in the window of the train as I rode home...that's my friend there in the other side of the reflection.

    What I did on this self portrait was an experiment. I didn't erase or undo at all. I wanted to see where my problem areas were...found a lot hehe.

    The pencil sketch self portrait is from the weekend. The other one was done in painter last night.

    HB pencil in around 15 minutes.

    Attachment 92250

    Probably like 1.5 hours or somewhere similar to that time. Had to fix a lot of things as I went.

    Attachment 92251

    Some of keyth's gladiatorial characters inspired this one. Drew this on the train with my ball point pen.
