    lots of sketchbook pages

    hey guys,
    hows everyone doing?
    i havent posted much in quite a while, but i scanned in 50+ sketchbook pages today to add to my website, so i figured i'd post some and get some feedback.
    so here you go, let me know what you guys think of these

    did this one using coro's marker ink wash technique...just fooling around with materials one evening..



    pencil sketch for a large piece i'm working on...referenced a photogrph for the figure.



    some doodles i did the other day..



    a couple life drawings...





    a quick sketch of Ludacris XIV.... part of my Decadence of hip hop series...


    more doodles...



    and a couple cadaver sketches...






    i might post a couple more later if anyones interested

    thanks!
    -wes

    wes, i am completely in awe of your drawing ability and the obvious need and vivaciousness with which you pursue drawing.

    these drawings knocked my socks off, buuuttttt, then i went to your site and the abundance is on the way to resuscitate me.

    i have had a long day. i got mad, i stuck my foot in mouth, i felt a little the fool, but seeing your work has me smiling and excited about drawing again.

    wes, i'm going to steal your childern and learn from their genetics.

    i mean.
    awesome as always. Sorry about lying to you again about going to CIA, it's just a long drive out there, never too convinent, and i'm lazy. If it's still on i would like to go though. I need to get back into drawing tradational and life draiwng would probably be the best step. come on irc sometime and let me know.

    wes, after viewing every single piece on your page...no wait...after seeing the first few sketches you posted...i was/am humbled by your works.

    simply amazing skill...wow.

    your style reminds me alot of Alan Tew at www.beeba.net ...amongst others.

    the only critique i can offer is on the cadavers; the're disgusting! haha..but thats just me.

    Damn, Awesome stuff Wes. Remember your work from a while back, was really good then too, tho think you've made even more progress. Kinda see abit of a Roundeye and Puddnhead influence in some of your doodles aswell, great cross of caracuture with realism.

    Anyway kick arse stuff, look forward to more.

    Awesome Wes. Your drawings are carefree in some ways, but full of substance in others. Cadaver drawings look nice. Nice to see some new stuff from you. Is the first piece going to be a painting?

    excellent.

    i like the first one (very jugendstil-y) and the third one (that pirate guy cracks me up) the best.

    awesome anatomy.

    Thumbs up

    The thing that really grabs me is your consistency. Thanks for sharing!

    btw the "Decadence of hip hop" is just damn funny...no hometown Bone Thugs? (For one who does listen to rap anymore I must admitt, I like them)

    great stuff man. i really like how you not only draw the figure but you also choose your composition very wisely with the surroundings. great line quality and a solid grasp on anatomy. keep up that passion for art.
