Crazy to see you were at the SF workshop - odd that we didn't meet. Here's to seattle right?!

ps: nomore chows? where u been?
CHECK ME OUT
& ILL RETURN THE FAVOR
AIM/AOL SCREENAME: ACRO IS ILL
Ya that is really crazy that we were at workshop and school together, who knew? How are you liking your new job? I heard your working at avalanche right? I am soooo jealous, hopefully my skills will get there in the next year or so. Me and the wifely are staying at the Marriot across from the Seattle workshop, I am so stoked!!! Also, I am going to start doing Kings and U of U figure sessions again since I am not at SLCC anymore, you should come with us sometime.
Sorry, I'll bust an update soon, but the internet really is kind of distracting to me and I am trying to spend all my time drawing and painting- MUST IMPROVE!!! I really have allot of stuff to show, but much of it is 24x18 and it won't fit my scanner...
More art to fallow!!!
Big update- Lots of garbage, but I am putting in the miles and some stuff is starting to show promise and improvement. Drawing is my focus right now, cause lets face it, I suck. Now that's out of the way, the only way is forward.
There is a little bit of everything here from about August until the first of September. Cartooning, life drawing, illustrations, conceptual, etc. Thanks for looking.

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:
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!!!
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!
Didn't get to my head study done for today...
Guess I'll go paint me right now!
