It was really cool meeting up with you and Rich. I'm looking forward to the next meet up. Those sketches turned out great. Keep up the great work!

My stars and garders! Page two! My mustache is pointed with excitement!
Looking back at the old page though, I can only say "poppycock!" Largely because that's what is written on the wall in my studio space, but also I am horribly disappointed with what I showed you guys! I want to do better for all you kind folk! WIsh I could've had some more accomplished works...but such is the life of the 'unfinished artist' as i call it, one whom never completes a damned thing! there i go getting all grumbley
Imaim - appreciate it immensely, i miss using charcoal so i'll have to do another study someday soon ( as in, yesterday soon)
bumskee! you are too nice my happy sir!
entroid - i am sooo happy you actually stopped by, my stuff is a little darker than your but i'm glad you gave it a whirl!
ostrander - thanks mr glen, hope to see you next saturday for sketchfest
envisor - novel idea! i actually hadn't even considered using my studies directly...there could be some interesting results!!!
SO NEW PAGE, NEW AGE OF TIMMY.
Here's what I'm working on tonight. A bumbling medieval kinda character, couldn't decide if they should beholding a sausage or a fowl. but i started in on the second one, trying some different techniques and steering away from the whole 'black' silhouette fetish i seemed to have stuffed myself with. OH, and pay no mind to that cryptic writing on the sketches, just notes to myself at how pathetic i am!
Pip pop and cheerio mates!

extra little tidbits! seems photobucket deems my nudie sketches as a wee mature (or just not good enough to host!) so here are the scandalous ones that got deleted...
five minute poses in my little sketchbook.
one dirty charcoal
GAAA! Charcoal deleted, avast!
ahh finally , I have been having so many problems coming to the page. CA is acting really wierd. but finally I enjoy the wirdness of this thread. really likikg the creepy factor. characters here look innocent but are very mich decieving arent they ? they arent so inncocent and nice. more like sick , fucked , twisted and seriously I like em like that. the study look really yummy, less lines put to good use.
bhanu - much appreciated sir. i like using those toned sketchbooks becuase you can really focus on the contours and pop some areas out with ease!
abyss - too kind sir!
marioucci - woodroffe! i just looked him up, awesome stuff, thanks for the tip off mate as for mucha, hehe that man was amazing.
flaskpost - sir always a pleasure, and you read my mind:
with this one, i got into the details, then ended up erasing mabye 30 percent and shrouding the figure in mist a bit...

"hunting fairies with a sausage and a stick" hoot!
I love this
and I liked your art god too
theres a lyrical qualiity about these two peices that I really like
To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.
I like the fatty a lot! I think the sausage needs to pop out a bit more though...
I use imageshack.us (when I'm not uploading to CA directly) and never had a problem, I set the images to "private" just in case though.
Hey, it's good to see this one finished!! I like it a lot! Your earthy palette really makes those blues pop, and the halftone is working really well on the belly's light to shade transition.
mmmmmm, now *I* fancy a hot dog
Had some extra time on me hands this fine evening so i decided to dirty up a sketch i started earlier, which serves as a speed study for an oil emulsion piece i will soon undertake. the whole point of emulsion is layers of texture, working with pure sticky egg! so i figured the best way to exemplify that would be a dirty, grungy pier with scratchy clouds, waves, and of course an octopus. of course an octopus! my only regret is that the character, which i'm considering as the baron of the docks...baron winchester?...is without mustache. he needs one desperetely
chaos - so pleased you had a looksie! i'm glad you liked the couple characters, for me, i like the original sketches myself but feel the finals are never what i intend them to be!
entroid - you know, i think he is the first fatty i've ever drawn and you are sooo right about the sausage, i absolutely despise the way it came out, but for once i actually 'finished' a CHOW - something new and exciting i say!
fedezz - you and entroid are too kind to me sir, you spoil me with riches!! ha ha i have realized though that i am estinkee with color, expecially traditional, so the simpler the better!!!
ostrander - and mr fumbles likes you see ya saturday??!!
i have a few pencil sketches from tonight i could show you guys but the scanner on campus is kaputz, so until tomorrow!!! i'll throw in a close up of mr fumbles as well, just a few layers of textures and overlays - kinda falls apart as you move in!!!!

I'm enjoying your funny attitude and personality along with your cool creature concepts. This is a really fun SB! Your exchanges with Voodochile starting with post#16 made me laugh.
So those are charcoals in the 1st post. Wow. Really awesome approach and style! I like the flat shadows alot. Adds much drama.
The design work in this COW is marvelous. Great design sense and imagination.
This one has a Mayan feel to it. Reminds me of one of my favorite incredible artist heros: Saturnino Herran. Very monumental. It would work nicely as a mural piece.
Nice SP on post #15. Mustache adds an elegant touch to the design.
All in all really enjoyed looking at your SB because of your excellent design sense.
Will be back to see your updates.
hi. thx for sharing these. your for sure a genius. your traditional paintings are amazing and charcoal works are outstanding. ull be mindblowing one day if not already.
Just a quick update tonight!
Aztec - glad you enjoy this sb, i have been jealous of your figures for some time now and the only way to go on living is to have a good humour about it
fUel - one can only hope...too kind
stared a dynamic study group tonight, and did some quick sketches on the tablet, which was akward as trying to spell ruttebagae. but i tried a wierd sort of approach that didn't really work thaaat welllllll: figured i would show the muscle striations, and highlight where the muscles tense and handle weight in a golf swing. around two minutes for each, didn't really nail it but i can only try again...oh, and also a few gestures of ways to show people trying to open pickle jars (modelled after a recent struggle in my life)
Okay enough studies on to the fun!!!

hey, i am completely in love with your work. I love your line work, paintings, pencils. If i were a woman i would have your babies....well maybe not, but your stuff is very inspiring, imaginative and very well done!

that traditional graphite and charcoal work is just great, the personality you get out of that stuff is fantastic. also the baby one cracked me up
something that might help you with your digital stuff, is periodically looking at your image in greyscale, so you can see how clearly your values are reading.
keep up the good work, looking forward to updates :B
Great sketches Tim!
jake - glad to see ya back form your vacation mate!
brendan - thanks alot, i really appreciate it, and hopefully within a few days i can post some of my 'thunderdome' stuff, which i :cough: have yet to really start!!
texahol - great approach, i'm gonna give it a whirl right now! i find i get scared of color so just desaturate everything, and therefore it all gets really flat.
envisor - if i can teach anything it's through my mistakes, trust me on that one! glad your liking this thread mate!!
stormcrow - if only
god i am such an incomplete artist! i get like halfway done and move on, so...nothing solid to update on (isn't that a surprise!!!) i hate just putting up these third assed sketches (i am a skinny boy after all) but i've been doing alot of digital kind of experiments, but nothing worthy of putting on the thread, so here are some random sketches i hastily scanned and the beginnings of some other work. did some life drawing this morning, but not gonna postem - i think i was suffering from a loathing of humanity and they came out stinky :
barebones of a new approach to character painting (for me at least!!)
idea i want to follow through on, mabye 25% done!!
and some quick sketches for this weeks CHOW; the bard of the apocalypse. but ive come to a realization that i don't like painting over my pencils and compromising, so i'm gonna start over 100% digital after i post this!!

MAn I just love your style bro! No crits here, keep updatin!!

Ha, with pencil work like that, I wouldn't want to paint over it either. Real unique style you have got there coupled with a great sense of humor and skill.
Good luck with that Chow and I hope you get it finished on time.
Tim that sketch is real nice. Good to see you experimenting when it comes to techniques etc.
Cool update Tim!! Now please, finish that goddamn CHOW, for mustachios' sake!!!
*clears throats* seriously that CHOW is ass kicking.
I really like your mustache men Tim Timmy. They look so damn classy
And for *insert preferred messiah's name here*'s sake!!!! Don't you DARE not finishing that CHOW, it's so wonderful!!! What? You have a fractured wrist? Paint with the *insert non preferred hand here* hand, damn it!!!
Seriously though... liking these updates a lot lot lot. Keep 'em coming. Yeah, erm... when you get better and all that.
