I agree with Krato on both points. Also, this:
is super cool.
Having such a good grasp of chaos is a huge advantage as an artist. Also the contrast of shiny smooth modernistic
structures and their catastrophic deconstruction is a compelling narrative and aesthetic element. LOL, can you tell I
went to 'art school'?
Anyways. Like Krato said, make haste slowly. Strike for calm and thoughtful exploration, a controlled looseness.
For starters, really be strict with yourself in not using two lines where one will do, and don't scrub back and froth over
the same lines. A key to this is visualize or 'feeling' the line before you draw it. You can also ghost your hand back and
forth over the line before touching down the pen/pencil. I found that using a very fine-tipped pen helped me improve my
line quality by letting me see my wobbles clearly and it also makes an annoying scratching sensation of you 'scrub' your lines
The bottom line is that each line, whether straight or scribbly, should be intentional, meaningful, add to the total message of the image.
Umm...also on your paintings, try to avoid so many small dabs. Use as big a brush as you can get away with. You want to
really be thinking about each stroke and how it will effect the image, so less strokes is probably better, I think you'll find its
more aesthetically pleasing, as well. Again...make haste slowly. Watch a real-time video of a really good painter, they often
stop for a significant pause at every (or many) stroke, thinking about what they're doing.
Color looks really good.
Anyways, cool stuff. Keep it up. Thanks for the stock...really fearless, man, good job!!

Kool thanks, not used to getting this much advise and especially quality advise, I liked your summary of some of the chaotic work ha.
Yep i need to take it slower, some of the work does look a bit stressed. I have been trying to use pen more in that hope I will take more care with line work but clearly still sticking to habit with numerous lines everywhere.
Your right about the paintings, I never really thought to think about each stroke and how its going to effect the image, I just dab away at the page hoping for the best but takes ages and is frustrating.
Thanks again Blud, yer the stock pictures are kinda mad ha.

Really nice start to the SB man, like Krato said slow down and also, those wrecked cars are seriously dope man! On the pencil sketches, try and get your lines down without redrawing the same section over and over, even if they aren't coming out at the correct spot, draw them once and with conviction. Lots of hatchy marks can sometimes show hesitance and hesitance can be a bad thing when drawing/painting. Throw that line down move on to the next, visually constructing things in your brain one line at a time to make the complete picture. Keep it up man! Cheers. Bah, I just typed all this out and read the last two statements above me, yea....broken record. haha.

Really like your style, and your drawings have a kind of expressive quality to them. Keep things up!
