Man, LOVE the chiseled look in all your work! All of this looks like you chopped it out of a block of stone, all these figures look like you could just reach in and wrap your hands around them (and struggle to lift them). Great work .
Misch- Thanks for the encouragement, man. How's shiz back in RVA?
Sid- Thanks man. I don't know if this one is working quite as well, haha.
Still kind of wishy washy on it. Haven't touched the re-done arm... I don't really think I should finish it... but I should!
... Oh well.
Feel free to comment. I'd love to hear if it's working.
His face is at least skewed. I'm still not sure about that arm, but I'll figure it out. It just looks awkward when I flip it, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's wrong.
Or does it?
Thanks! I just try to paint like i think I'd sculpt, or something like that.
Hey thanks for commenting on my work. I was wondering if you could be a little bit more specific on my last piece that I posted. Too be honest, I've been doing everything you've mentioned for the most part so I'm a little confused. I think I've really gotten better recently and I think my last piece shows it.
Thank you for the links. I'll def check those out.
Really not feeling well. Must push through.
I feel bad, but this is all I have at the moment. Normally I wouldn't have even saved this, but what the hell.
Here's a lame ass-composition.
I don't know. I think it's kind of cool. Maybe you should develop the relationship between the ship and that rock in the foreground. Like put a man on it or a city or something.
keep it up!
Ok, so I'm trying to work some stuff into a regiment. I'm going to do gestures a few times a week, full on studies a few times, painting studies, etc. etc. so I can try to improve a bit more.
Here is something I think I should do more often. It's like random sketch pages, but it's a random painted sketch page. Probably a lot of structure issues, but this is really the way that I love to paint.
Artfix gave a link to some brushes, and I think they're awesome as shit.
good luck sticking to a strict regiment, we all need it
the lastest compositions are looking good, i'd say keep pushing them to the finish, and i think your new value studies will def help improve the overall power of your pieces.
keep pushin it!
Began working an illustration for Mountain Wheel. No it doesn't pay, but it has an art director who makes decisions from my sketches and deadlines. These things I need. If not I'll always render out what I want to and finish it when I want to.
Here are my initial Sketches for "Humans Versus Neanderthals". The way I see it I have to figure out the main action first, so here's me doing that:
(i'm to the point that I like sketching. A LOT.)

Great thing that you are working for "Mountaiwheel Games".
Maaan, that has to be awesome.
The character painting in #245 is epic, I like the brushwork.
The spaceship environment looks creepy.
Sketches in #250 with your new brushes are way too good,
definitely great improvements. As I said earlier, like to visit
your book from time to time.
Nick, thanks man. This is gonna be a fun one to paint if I set it up properly.
Plissken, thanks yo. I'm trying to take an image to a new level... starting here!
woke up at 1:30 AM, painted this for an hour, and now I'm going back to sleep.
Working Working Working. These are almost done, couldn't quite finish them off today. Got work early, so I'm gonna sleep well...
Plissken- Thanks yo. Glad you stop by as often as you do, always good hearing from you!
As done as is gonna be. They seem to like my work.
So, I think it looks too much like he's putting weight on the extended foot (which might or might not look extended) and it makes it look really long. Oh well.

Neanderthal man? Maybe. I'm stretching it with the proportions, I think.
He's gonna get REALLY hairy.
Um. I'm not sure the face is working, but he does look kind of like a hairless cat to me. He's going to get hair, I'm just building form.
EDIT: By the way, Plissken- I think you got my 666th thanks. Haha.
Really dynamic poses and charakter designs. Nice values too .. keep it up!
Oh goodness, four replies. Thanks guys!
Namae- that's the plan. The head hauncho guy of the project likes the black and white work. I like the speed and work-flow I'm developing. You learn a lot from DOING. I just need to reference a lot more while I'm doing.
TomDeVis- yeah man. Will do!
huc- thanks. Many more to come!
Elophant- you betcha, thanks for the words of encouragement.
Small update, cus I had to work tonight. Work is really getting in the way of my art, I can't wait until work is my art. I'm actually starting to become confident that might possibly happen. I'm totally stoked to wake up and do art, come home from work and do art, do art in my sleep... I wake up when I can't sleep and start paintings. I'm really in the zone, and I hope to ride this to some major improvements.
I couldn't leave him hairless for that long, that's most of the reason I'm compelled to update with this tiny move. I think the form will work out okay, I need to be faster. I NEED TO DO MOAR!!!!!!!!!!!
