such improvement! Youve become so good with oils! loving those last portraits on this page, keep it up!
Jephyr X - Thank you dude! Someone came into class and broke the nose off my bust. Now I gotta take some time to fix it.
Yor - Thanks man, you've got a great sketchbook! Lovely drawings!
I did some landscapes! They suck! Alright, moving on, some recent portraits, the ones after school continuing to paint in the 12 x 12 format. Had another after school drawing session, I think I can bring it back like we used to have it last year with a different group. It'll be good. Still lifes, just finished one, and have started another one.
these are so beautiful. i am very inspired!

Wow, I haven't gotten through everything yet but:
1. The improvements are fantastic and
2. I love so much of what you are posting now.. A Schmidt feel (eArly figure Schmidt I mean!) to many of these.. Good good good!
the blog will not leave me be: http://www.kevinwuesteart.blogspot.com
Wow Adam I've missed some great updates. I love your chimney sweep sculpture. I've been having a go myself at a self portrait in clay but I think I prefer yours. Seems a shame you won't get to cast it. I thought the photos of it look good as well and that it would make a good painting.
Have to say your landscapes are not as bad as you think and I really like the reclining figure. Sorry to keep gushing but I do really like your work, always so inspiring.
I really like the balance between the hardness and softness in this one: http://attachments.conceptart.org/fo...1&d=1319042047
Velocity Kendall - Thank you so much.
kevinwueste - Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting, I'm really glad you like my work, I've been looking at yours for years. Early Schmid! Ehhh, I don't know.
Marian - Thanks, I wish I could cast it, there still might be a possibility though. Otherwise I'm glad I have a photo of it.
Tuendeboer - Thank you, I'm kind of glad I was able to push it a little further than before, but it's still not enough.
mburell - Thank you sir.
So I just spent the past 12 hours painting this non stop. I had a reference for the face and animal skull though I mixed a deer with a sheep. I only tried to use the hard round brush on this like everything else digital I do just so I can figure out it's possibilities. Textures have been scanned in. I've always loved Jeff Simpsons work, I'm sure a few of you are going to notice this is influenced by him.
f1x - Thank you.
Marian - Thanks, it was a fun diversion.
Suprore - Thanks for looking!
First one is a 1.5 hour sketch from class. In the middle of it I had to leave so I couldn't push it further. The other two are part of a group of buddies staying after school to pose for each other so we can all draw, paint, and learn from each other.
Great to see some inspiring traditional, you seem to jump right into each medium and make it work well for you. The variety of subject matter in here makes looking at your sketchbook refreshing.

Thank you everyone!
So this was completely new. My next sculpture I was introduced to was a relief as opposed to a full bust or figure like normally. I had to go through a different mindset trying to figure out what to push back and what to bring forward in the relief. I know there are anatomical and whatnot, but it was a very interesting experience.
Also, dropped by the Palette and only had a charcoal pencil and kneaded eraser on me so got some more life drawing in. Please don't mind that gap on the left figure. It's not like I wasn't paying attention to proportions or anything.
Great work in here, really love to see someone who still uses oils instead of PS
Your portrait drawings are superb, really like 'm. They seem right on the money.
IMHO: your paintings could benefit from some contrast between your awesome painterly hand and some solid (less painterly) fields . So they compliment each
Great to see the passion in this SB.
I really love your sb, man

all I can say is fantastic and inspirational work, keep it up, pleasure to flip thorugh...
Great oil work!
wow man seems like your getting really pro with oils
please visit my page and help me.
Okay, a few more minutes to go through your thread properly.
Really a unique vision, and a fearlessness to try new things. I really like your impastos in oil and sculpts.
And even this got a giggle out of me.
The strokes in this one are impressive.
Loved the concept in the sketch on the right...
And all of those are in just the first couple of pages. Since then, you've really amped up.
Thought the little gold star in this one was funny (good choice, too).
Overall inspired and glad to have spent some time with your works.
Thank you all so much!
p sage - Oh man, you're going way far back, I don't like to look at some of that stuff anymore. But thanks for checking it out so thoroughly and enjoying what I do, it means a lot.
Portraits. Three of them this time.
