    Hi guys,
    The following is stuff I've done at sheridan in the illustration program as well as things done on my personal time while attending the school.

    Thanks in advance for any input.

    Watercolor and guache done on yellow drawing paper in the painting studio at school.

    Homework assignment where we had to find our own model. Friend posed for me with my bass guitar.

    Multi-session oil painting I did on canvas board... it was a double-model assignment as you can see.

    Here are things from that summer, starting almost as soon as school was finished...

    Quick painting I did while I had mono and a fever
    141 days until I graduate

    Still coming off of the mono and not feeling too creative, I did my best to paint a photo at IMDB... hopefully you can tell who it is.
    141 days until I graduate

    Just a quick grayscale painting of a model to try and get used to my tablet again..finally the mono was over with... hurray.

    your basic portrait comission -- done from a pencil sketch and then put in illustrator.
    141 days until I graduate

    Characters from the movie -- "the jacket" starring adrien brody and keira knightly... the old man I forget the name of at the moment but he was in 'blade'...
    141 days until I graduate

    Was tired and just decided to do a painting from a movie frame.
    141 days until I graduate

    Just a weird painting I did of a woman with really exagerated features.
    141 days until I graduate

    started on this dude when I got tired of painting the woman... I think I'll rather continue with this one.
    141 days until I graduate

    another illustrator-ish comission for my friend's birthday in august..
    141 days until I graduate

    Something I started right before I headed back to school for 3rd year. I'll explain more about it later when I get the final completed. Illustrator again.

    First assignment in our illustration class.. it was to record strangers having a conversation and then make an illustration of a short text exchange from that conversation -- as well as take it out of context

    Spot illustrations that I should of done size-as instead of drawing them so small -- again for interpretive illustration class.

    141 days until I graduate

    Short one-night assignment where we had to illustrate the word 'perfectionist'... I took the control-freak approach.

    New interpretive illustration class project. It was for 'recipes for disaster'... we could either do food or something conceptual/humorous.

    I chose a recipe for getting dumped/bad date.

    Hey duder.

    I love your stuff from your mind - the portraits with exaggerated features are really strong. It's too bad this doesn't carry over to some of your heavily referenced pieces (like the celebrity paintings) - they come off a little stiff. But hey, you certainly seem to be learning from 'em, so keep it up.

    Awaiting updates! :3

    Jesus de Haro, Thanks for the kind words and you're welcome.

    Thanks for checking out my website too.. heheh

    Bhanu, thanks for dropping by. Yeah, you're right I do need to watch out for the proportions... especially the amount that can go wrong by not looking in the mirror. Maybe next time you see my stuff I'll be better at it, hehe.

    Ryn, thanks for coming by. I appreciate the kind words. Yeah... see likeness has always beena huge struggle for me and I'm scared of combatting it... so I tend to tighten up on stuff like that. Hopefully with more practice it'll catch up to my other stuff. Glad you like my exagerated stuff.

    Thanks everyone!

    Ken

    You seem to have a really good handle on faces but you need to work on other parts of the anatomy a bit. The hands in some of them look a bit awkward.

    Your watercolors are beautiful and I do enjoy a lot of your digital stuff.

    Keep up the good work!

    Thanks Blythe,
    Yeah, I should probably start filling sketchbooks with hands and whatnot again. It's been a while.
