The following is stuff I've done at sheridan in the illustration program as well as things done on my personal time while attending the school.
Thanks in advance for any input.
Watercolor and guache done on yellow drawing paper in the painting studio at school.
Homework assignment where we had to find our own model. Friend posed for me with my bass guitar.
Multi-session oil painting I did on canvas board... it was a double-model assignment as you can see.
And attached is an illustration class assignment... visual metaphor CD cover illustration for 70's song lyrics -- Horse with No Name by America

Here are things from that summer, starting almost as soon as school was finished...
Quick painting I did while I had mono and a fever
Still coming off of the mono and not feeling too creative, I did my best to paint a photo at IMDB... hopefully you can tell who it is.
Just a quick grayscale painting of a model to try and get used to my tablet again..finally the mono was over with... hurray.
your basic portrait comission -- done from a pencil sketch and then put in illustrator.
Characters from the movie -- "the jacket" starring adrien brody and keira knightly... the old man I forget the name of at the moment but he was in 'blade'...
Was tired and just decided to do a painting from a movie frame.
Just a weird painting I did of a woman with really exagerated features.
started on this dude when I got tired of painting the woman... I think I'll rather continue with this one.
another illustrator-ish comission for my friend's birthday in august..
Something I started right before I headed back to school for 3rd year. I'll explain more about it later when I get the final completed. Illustrator again.
First assignment in our illustration class.. it was to record strangers having a conversation and then make an illustration of a short text exchange from that conversation -- as well as take it out of context
Spot illustrations that I should of done size-as instead of drawing them so small -- again for interpretive illustration class.
Short one-night assignment where we had to illustrate the word 'perfectionist'... I took the control-freak approach.
And here are some sketches I did during that fall semester...
They brought an elephant to our school!
Here are some mock-up subscription cards we had to illustrate for the magazine of our choice.
altertanate front with the crap all over it
and here's another sketch -- handed in for one of my final sketch portfolio's before christmas in life-drawing.
I'm back with more!
Further progress on that big-nosed guy from earlier.
Here is a nearly-finished version of that salsa-dancing one I posted earlier in this thread.
Here are some progress shots of one of the latest weird pieces I've been working on
Here is some further progress on it by painting over the sketch in photoshop
That's all for now
Nice work man!
thank you for post in my Sketchbook. i like your artwork, faces, designs...you have really good ones here.
PD: nice web too hehe
~Everything is in Everything~
Please visit my Sketchbook, i need critics,
reallys tylised stuff ehre man love ths plashes o f colors , colors and paints are in particular spectacular but do watch out for the proportions. and the digi images look sweet.
I love your stuff from your mind - the portraits with exaggerated features are really strong. It's too bad this doesn't carry over to some of your heavily referenced pieces (like the celebrity paintings) - they come off a little stiff. But hey, you certainly seem to be learning from 'em, so keep it up.
Awaiting updates! :3
Jesus de Haro, Thanks for the kind words and you're welcome.
Thanks for checking out my website too.. heheh
Bhanu, thanks for dropping by. Yeah, you're right I do need to watch out for the proportions... especially the amount that can go wrong by not looking in the mirror. Maybe next time you see my stuff I'll be better at it, hehe.
Ryn, thanks for coming by. I appreciate the kind words. Yeah... see likeness has always beena huge struggle for me and I'm scared of combatting it... so I tend to tighten up on stuff like that. Hopefully with more practice it'll catch up to my other stuff. Glad you like my exagerated stuff.
You seem to have a really good handle on faces but you need to work on other parts of the anatomy a bit. The hands in some of them look a bit awkward.
Your watercolors are beautiful and I do enjoy a lot of your digital stuff.
Keep up the good work!
There's some good stuff in here, I especially like the distorted heads, reminds me a little of Joe Sorrens work.
"absorb what is useful, discard what is useless, and keep what is essentially your own." - Bruce Lee
Bojee's Monkey Brain
Sheridan, Sheridan... sounds familiar. I'm from Sudbury if you're willing to let me know where it is in relation to that, and quench my curiosity
Very strong stuff here man, no real crits except for a slightly misplaced feature here and there (aside form the obvious exxagerations of course)
Keep 'er up
I go to Cambrian college of arts & technology, taking graphic design. Basically it rocks in applied arts (one of the best design programs in Ontario thanks to our awesome genious of a coordinator) but it falls on its face in fine arts. In fact, the fine arts is being removed after this semester because of low attendance. We DID have an awesome painting teacher this semester for about 2 months, but the fine arts girls chased him away for stupid reasons. So aside from the stupid little projects our foundations teachers give us (in all seriousness, we are painting faces on eggs. I feel like such a man) I get my artistic learning from this site.
About Sudbury - it's a dirty industrial town with very little going for it in the way of attractions, unless you want to see the largest smoke stack in the world. It has a decent little art scene I suppose, if you can ever find a gallery to visit.
Anyhoo enough about me. Hope to see an update soon
Recipe for disaster project in 3rd year illustration class
Logo I designed for Toronto Dance Salsa dance competition. The sketches from earlier in this thread were from that.
A freelance assignment where I did a bunch of business spot illustrations
The finished version of the kensington market one from earlier.
A freelance decorative illustration for girl guides Canada.
Another of the same type
Turn down the music! Heh.
Book cover that I plan to correct some of the perspective issues on later. The drawing which I'll post later was much accurate.
Another flying painting that I'm currently working on.
A battlestar galactica illustration that I'm currently working on.
Piece of clipart I made for girlguides.
Another section illustration freelance thang for girl guides canada.
Quick sketch for a larger illustration I don't think I ever got to.
That's it for now.
You have some nice work here. I like the Illustrator-ish work and the sketches the most. Your work really seems to convey a hidden story in each image, it is really nice keep it up.
Rhineville, Heh, I guess my "soon" update was a few months late. Thanks for the input though.
NiyanaMae, Thanks for the kind words. Yeah, my teachers seem to like the illustrator stuff/drawings the most.
I'm still trying to get better at the whole painting thing.
Here's another illustrator-ish piece with some hand-made textures.
Teddy Bear Mafia.
hmmm, so thats what u learn on an illustration school eh?
looking good! love it that u have a lot of happy characters instead of the more sad ones a lot of people here make
My sketchbook: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...106521&page=11
Hahaha, I'm not sure how to respond to your first comment. There's alot I didn't get around to photographing or posting... mainly the first two years of life-drawing, painting, drawing systems, flat tone designs, and conceptual excersises.
Beyond that we kinda move in our own directions.
Thanks! Yeah, I guess my characters are pretty happy. I'm working on a couple sad ones though, I'll post tthose up.
Bhanu, Thanks! It's to know my style is developing. For a while there I was kinda all over the place and wasn't sure at all.
One of the things my interpretive teacher suggested I do was to draw from paused DVD's and recorded TV shows.
I started looking at illustrators who do arts and entertainment decorative pieces for magazines and a cool illustration about the show; "Lost" caught my eye.
I decided to do one on the Galactica remake.
To do most of my finals I use photoshop for the more painterly stuff with my tablet.
In the one you pointed out I used illustator to create the more 2D characters and sculpted the old man head by hand out of sculpey. I photographed and dropped it in using photoshop.
Thanks for the kind words,
