    I had surgery the end of September, and am just starting to feel better... LAME

    Here is the stuff I have been doing the past week or so. The Troll was an Illustration assignment from the book Harry Potter. The Halo one is another assignment for the same class, and this is just my under painting/comp I'll post the final. The other two are speed painting's half an hour each I did after spending 2 hours scanning and photographing all the stuff today...

    UPDATE: I haven't really touched the guy on the right yet, I am trying to establish the level of detail for the main character. I still have a week to go on this, but it is mostly there.

    Vyle cloud brush for the win!!!!

    Oh, I like the color version! Be careful how you touch this one from now on; it's very close.
    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    Thanks for the outstanding feedback, I thought that to myself, then my teacher said it, and now you! I will most certainly follow 3 people advice! Once I put some light on the right guy, I mostly just need to noodle small things and add a few more little highlight kicks.

    It is fun to look at this most recent work vs. the very first painting I did a year ago here:

    F**k the pallet knife, I use a pallet sword: a 7 year journey from art school to now.

    I really feel like I am improving, and I really feel like throwing up looking at the old one. I HOPE I FEEL THAT WAY ABOUT THIS ONE A YEAR FROM NOW!!!

    Wow. Looks like you made the right decision. Im really stunned by the amount of improvement here. You still need to work on anatomy, but overall your stuff is looking great. Especially that last piece is awesome.

    And another one...

    Almost there. I really wish I understood how to fake cast shadows more realistically. I know there is a way to plot them in perspective, but unfortunately, I don't know how it's done

    GOAL: Here is my new daily boot camp quota:

    1 Head Study
    - Self portrait, person from life, or photos if needed.
    1 Environment Speed Paint - About an hour or less, I also need to start working on more color environments, I am doing to many gray scale, and it's becoming a cop out.
    1 Character Speed Paint - About an hour or so again. Color is optional for now, design and drawing is the focus.
    1 Hour MINIMUM Drawing on paper - Anything goes, but will be focusing on anatomy, gesture and imaginative drawing.
    Weekly Life Drawing - Minimum 1 open life drawing session per week.

    That means minimum 4 hours of art a day, lately I have been doing about 14...

    So here is a few from this week, at least there is only one way to go from here right?

    Great stuff man! Ahhhh I've made schedules like that myself and just havent kept up with it....make sure you write it somewhere like a whiteboard, or have it in a calandar you can tick off haha.

    Your doing 14 hours a day! (well with normal life stuff I assume) I kind of wish I didnt work so I could do the same, the art I do at work isnt what I want to improve upon the most. The rock formations are cool, neat quickies. Great job on that halo piece...I didnt play it much (so maybe I just dont understand) but I'm not positive I like the bridge like things coming out of the city on the left? Cheers!

    jeeeezus you have well and truly caught the bug mate, nice dedication and that’s what its all about, you have some fantastic ideas that seem to be just waiting for your artistic ability to catch up, keep at it, you are doing all the right things.

    this sketchbook was a nice kick up the rear, thanks.

    End of November through mid-January: ALL about 1 hour or less.

    Lots of studies, trying to make myself paint more color since I am poor at it... Seeing allot of improvement the last 2 months though, wonder if Revelations has anything to do with that?

    And about a 4 or so hour sketch inspired by Android. Still WIP. Mr. Jones really moved me at Revelations.
