*poops out another one*
nice things you've got going here. last one's pretty good,although the bg is competing quite much with the figures. some dynamic posing pages wouldn't hurt either (stick figures n stuff)
yo tex, whats up brother, I figured I'd try to find your sketchbook and check out your work cause your always giving me good info in the irc.
The silliouette guys really stood out here, I like that, and The Ice cream truck thing is pretty funny. These last gestures are really amazing, are you using references. Looks like done in photoshop. I don't have any crits to offer, sorry, but I will check in for your updates and hopefully I can offer some helpfull crits them.
Take care Tex,
You could get more variety into your Rorshach scribbles by including straight lines, and patches of value.

"Knowledge is proven in action."

Nice gesture studies. I'ld like to see how they influence your work from here on.
Keep on going
electronic paper. They were all scribbled in PS (no ctrl+z, I promise!) they are actually at 50% of the size I originally drew them at.
on another note, here's something from when I was 9 years old:
Makes me really wish I had stuck to my guns and didn't quit drawing in 5th grade. I started 5th grade, and then skipped into 6th --from there studies took priority. What a nerd.
I love pandas and I love bats... put them together and you have pure over weight flying greatness.
I love the action poses... .I should do more of those....>.<
great panda-bat dude...

just for the pleasure of doing it...
Nice gestures dude!
Just some random thoughts for you to uhm think about; try using as big a brush as possible in your paints. Block things in, planes and shapes - refine little by little ending with detail. On your monochromes, work 'warm' or 'cool' with your light, try using more saturation and value (obviously) for warm, less saturation and more value for cool (as you add light that is). Watch your edges, particularly where they meet other shapes and planes, soft edges means 'slower' transition like a sphere, sharper edges are more like a box. Check out elwell's post in the... I dunno fine arts section about edges for more. Values and edges are the most important factors in form and readability I think. Color can be finicky, I'd suggest reading up on how light works and basically going about color as a 3d rendering program would. Check out the Peer project link in my signature for more of my thinking on color too.
Just some thoughts, Cheers dude.
two small figure studies from my painting class (something that's small and scanable!) it's small...but I need to figure out how glazing techniques work with acrylic...and I still need to work on getting better colors :| (although...my scanner blows and the colors are all fux0red...waaaaay darker than they should be)
I like the falling concept
Sorry for my poor english
hey devin, the acrylics stuff is actually looking really good. as far as the sp goes, try something a bit more dynamic for the next one. it's actually much much easier to do a portrait when you have dynamic lighting.
I'd also try doing gestures of expressions in a mirror. I started doing it this week and it's really paying off
