    Your sketchbook... man... it makes my life hurt to look at it - in the best way possible.

    I've hereby declared that, in time, my sketchbook is going to look like yours.

    MY SKETCHBOOK IS AWESOME

    You're one of the persons who made me realise that it was actually possible toactually become super good, a friend of mine showed me your sketchbook when I was depressed 1 year ago because I couldn't understand why I wasn't progressing any. You and Algenpfleger opened up my eyes and washed away my depression, it was only by then that I finaly realised that studying hard is the only way to progress. And after that I have been trying to study each day.

    Thank you so much! You're an amazing inspiration for everyone who want to become an artist.


    If you don't mind I would like to ask you a question about how you drew up your time. Did you have a schedule you worked after? Like "per day: value studies 2 hours, anatomy 2 hours, etc". I am quite intrested to know how you planned your days. Thank you in advance.

    as it's been said a million times, it really is phenomenal the progress you've made over the years, and how humble you remain, and all the new things you expose yourself to in hopes of learning and improving your art. amazing

    thanks and never stop posting!!

    Hey,

    Thanks for the link and the encouragement! Great work.

    Question: Did you take the Perspective Class via TAD or was it something altogether separate? I'm just curious because Perspective is a weak area for me and I need a lot of help and guidance. Were any great books recommended by the teacher to continue your studies?

    Thanks!

    incredible! I am pretty amazed by those portraits, I'm amazed by all the stuff you poster but those portraits are superb!! seems like few brush strokes been lain down and a gorgeous face pops out, now that's true mastery, thanks for sharing... wish I was there listening to James Gurney lecture.

    Good luck!

    This journal is absolutely staggering. : ) I've been on the fence whether I could do what I've seen you do here, but after seeing this I'm sold. Thank you so much for the inspiration!

    Not the first time I've checked out this sb, but I loved that last big TAD update. I hope to be studying at TAD myself next february and am looking forward to it even more now!

    First off, faved and saved.

    Second of all, DAMN, holy living hell....

    I'm not sure which is more mind blowing, your current work, or the fact you've kept at it for....... nine years or so, and still going?

    Only thing else I have to say, and you already know it better than a lot of us do, keep going.

    I almost cried while reading this. I felt so inspired. Especially after being so discouraged and overwhelmed by all I have to learn. Thank you.
