Some sketchbookery. Not so concentrated as of late, plenty of blind contour and scribbles.
Sketchbook (daily Oils):
happy holidays to you too!
these look great. for perspective stuff, check out the "free book thread" (link in my sig). also search for perspective drawing, or things like that, on the internet. why not pick up dobsky's perspective drawing download?
for your two last grayscale landscapes, remember to factor local color into the shadow values and such. the shadow on the ground is too dark. take care dude, look forward to your next batch of stuff.
Cool hatching! You're getting really creative with that sketchbook.
Katzenminze: Thank you.
purb36: Thank you for the unexpectedly helpful post! And i can see what you mean with the thumbnails. Cheers!
Two scribble pages and a self portrait. My scanner doesnt really do the portrait justice, and ive made some adjustments to it (smoothed it some)... regardless, here it is 11x14".
(Concept art is being a real bitch about me attaching images to my posts, am i the only one? It has never been a problem in the past.)
so I'm totally obsessed with your stuff. It is amazing.
What school are you planning to go? I'm guessing its ringling if its for CA. You'd definitely get in (I went to ringling precollege and saw some portfolios that are going to get in; yours go far beyond)
I don't have any resolutions for you.
Happy New Year CA!
smily3t85: I'm flattered... I'm applying to Ringling for Illustration actually, as well as SVA and Pratt. Applying to Cal Arts for Character Animation and Cooper Union/ PAFA for either painting or drawing. Thank you!

awesome. Im applying to ringling as well. Have any thoughts on art center?
Great book, great styrel!
happy new year
smily3t85: Ah nice, goodluck! I have heard good things and bad things about art center. There seems to be alot of sentiment that it's very expensive and doesn't provide it's students with opportunities within the program to develop very strong foundational drawing skills, kids end up studying at a local atelier outside of class. It kind of concerned me as someone that is both interested in realism based figurative illustration and can't really afford to go to art college without outside financial help to begin with... That's just my take, i didn't end up applying.
BRINKMAN!: Cheers , here is an updated version
So, i was feeling really burnt out today but ended up resolving to start sketching more in Photoshop. I've been pretty frustrated with my digital work of late and i have a feeling it stems from my lack of comfort with the medium. What better way to change that?
Yeah. a similar reason why I didnt apply.
I'm checking every week. Keep on keeping on!
i really like the direction your staring to go. keep it up!
It has been awhile CA... again.
BRINKMAN!: Thanks man, i think i feel it to.
slyx: Ha, thank you, i'll do my best.
smily3t85: Sorry it's been a bit more than a week, hopefully you will be appeased!
raife: Thanks, love the energy your sketchbook has right now, i hope youll do the same.
hp: That last one annoys me greatly, the only reason i'm not taking it down is because it will devalue this sketchbook as a faithful progression! Thanks for coming by
frog and *BAM*: Changing course slightly, thank you!
PieMonster: Aw, you just arent trying hard enough Thanks!
Okay, so i finally have a few things to show for myself. My art time has been spent primarily on oil paint and loomis copies/studies. I've been doing the loomis junk as warmup's, in addition to being a fine warm up, i feel like some of it is seeping in... Ill post the paintings ive been doing some day soon, in the mean time:
A cover mockup i did in painter X, a value/digi warmup from tonight and then the drawing that followed. The drawing is a concept for a street fighter kind of based character series im doing for a show in february, still has some more work to be done on it, the idea is that she is a woman that wears a mythical kind of fatsuit that gives her super strength/ world fighting badassery.
blimey, can't believe I haven't looked in here much before, fantastic stuff, I'm really enjoying flicking through. have some stars man, interesting work.

I like the new stance and greater variation in the fat-suit-fighter, but I'd say ditch the background gradient for some more architectural background elements. They don't even need to be representative, it's just that the gradient flattens ish out. I'm sure it's place holder anyways! :p
Great work bud!
