    <<<Grae Area>>>

    After lurking for a minute, I decided it's time to start a sb...as a motivatoinal tool. All C&C welcome!

    Here's a bunch of stuff from the spring:
    Brain Travelin'


    detail


    Bush and Chavez


    Ghost Hand


    James Brown from ref


    JB detail








    Here are some pages from a book I made for my digital art class. They explore the meeting of digital and print media as well as sexist, racist and violent themes that I was oblivious to as a kid but are glaring to me now.















    CHOW from this week


    detail of the hand that I liked a lot but ended up blurring in the final




    That's all of it! Thanks for stopping by!

    Here are two WIPs I did a few nights ago. I don't have a scanner yet so the only stuff I'll be posting for a bit is all digital.
    Snake


    Goya from ref (only about 15 mins in so far)

    the goya study has all kinds of proportion problems which I intend to fix. I thought the colors got pretty close, which is good. The Snake doodle is just for fun!

    OK, back with a little update before I go off to Europe for a month and have no access to digital painting media.

    I've included an update to the Snake painting and two poster Illustrations I did for a clandestine postering campeign my friends and I did last night.

    C&C appreciated!

    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook,

    Good start here, I think the crow piece is great!

    About your Solid Snake piece, take a closer look at the hand holding the knife. If I were to hold a knife like that my knuckles and hand would be tilted at a angle like the knife. Try holding something like that in your hand to get a better idea.
    There are probably errors in the anatomy. Parts like his arms throw me off. Maybe post it in the critique section to get better thoughts on this one. I'm currently a anatomy noob myself so I can't help you out too much here. Think about pushing your shadows more and direction of lighting. Hope that maybe helps.

    Keep up the good work.

    Here's my first update in a long while, I'm hoping to update more often... we'll see.

    The last one is obviously the most finished and probably represents the height of my current rendering and color ability.

    Crits and feedback are welcome and wanted!

    Tonight I finally sat down and made some brushes I'd been meaning to make forever: a decent sized gathered bristle type, a hexagon, a ring and some grunge brushes. Here's me playing with the first three.

    Daniel- Thanks! The crow piece was for a digital art class, so it had to be... you know, like, deep and like, meaningful and stuff.

    Amontillado- Thanks dood!

    I really dig your more stylized interpretations of humans. Brain Travelin', Ghost Hand, and St. James the Boxer are all great work. The huge hands and huge faces without actual necks, well, what can I say? Lovely. I look forward to seeing more.

    bustermaximus- Thanks man! It's a cannon of stylized proportions that I've been cultivating for a while... I'm glad you like it.

    Here's some more sketchbook stuff, a zombie priest speedy and a WIP of the digital sketch I'm doing for a painting as part of my senior project series on mingling torture and office work

    As always, crits, and love always weilcome!

    Cool ideas here man.

    What I would like to point out is that
    you get into studies on anatomy and
    anything that interests you or doesn't
    interest you. If you can at least do 2 or 4
    hours of studies everyday, you will get where
    you want to be in art. Unless you are purely
    doing it as a hobby.

    Remember, studies = great art. And you can't
    forget the passion for art either. Get inspired,
    go out and fill up sketchbooks, study things around you,
    study artist's images that you live. It takes time
    and I'm learning this too!
