Big thanks for your advice in my post. ( I say that here because its posted in the wrong forum and I dont wanna bump it up)
I really dig your work. Hmm I'm really no good at critique. But I'll try. Ok so in my personal opinion - you realistic pencil sketches could use a little finer strokes. But that's a very personal opinion.
On to another point, one I consider less objective (and other ppl might have said this I didn't read all the posts) is that you anime picture (some of them) lact symmetry. So try flippin' them in photoshop. I really like that "stencil" angel in the latest ones. Keep it up.
also... the thought of johnny depp playing Schiele makes me want to cut my face off. Don't get me wrong... i realize it was only a dream.. and considering some of his work... i like the guy (as an actor). but schiele
I'd be afraid he'd make him act like a drunk rolling stones member. Nikolai Kinski is playing him in the movie Klimt. I haven't seen the move yet... nor have i ever seen Kinski act... but he seem like a worthy match...
zeitgeist: i was entirely unaware of that klimt movie, i'll have to check it out. (the review of it on imdb made it so sound bad that it might be good)
here's two portraits in an adorable hat.
1- pencil on paper, 20 mins
2- while were still on the topic of egon, here's a schiele style portrait. digitally altered the color to make the paper not as ...white. and looks like i'm giving the Four-Horseman salute. WHOOO!
i recently filled my sketchbook and went out to buy a new one.
ive been using strathmore 11x14 60lb sketchbooks. nothing fancy, ive just grown used to them.
the bookstore i frequent no longer carries this specification of sketchbook, but now has some local art distributor which has really shitty quality bound sketchbooks. its like 1.50 more expensive too, and the paper weight is a whopping 40lbs.
i bought one because i'm an idiot, and i'd hate to blame a bad sketchbook for bad drawings, but i just dont feel comfortabe spending time in this thing. i'm too cheap to toss it and buy a new one, so i'm feverishly going through pages trying to fill the damn thing so i can be done with it.
anyone have any preference for a lovable sketchbook that i should buy?
i want to treat myself to something fancy after this ordeal.
