shit from the head
Hey man, been through your sketchbook; some real signs of improvement, I love the tatto designs too not something you see a lot of on here. Kudos for going out of your way to learn to draw as well, as you said at the start of your SB it's not something a lot of Tattoo artists do.
hey man great studies I like how you're doing different types of studies. Negative spacing, contour drawings, etc it may be easier to fill in the black for the negative spacing. That way you can define your object or figure more thoroughly.
these two are blind contours i think theyre called. where you don't look at your paper, just your reference. the first one is a flower for 1/2 hour and then a castle, which got cut short cuz i had to deal w a client. seems like a whole lotta wasted time to me.
Nice SB, that profile above looks like Tom Cruise - is it?
no it's not tom cruise. just some guy. it didn't look like the guy from the picture either. i can make my drawings look like people, just not the right people. i need work on faces and heads. i read a blog entry on a mad magazine site i think about caricature recently. apparently the key to caricature is relationships of the shaps/features. maybe if i keep that in mind.... or, you know, just learn to draw a face!
here's some initial sketches for that bigfoot halfsleeve a few posts back.
Damn your getting good man! Heaps of impovement!
Your studies really are paying off, and you've got a really nice style!
I know you want some crits, but your better than me, so I feel waht I say would be poinless, so just keep drawing and studing and doing what your doing because mate it seems to be working!
