Another sleep depraved drawing.  I really love using my arms as reference... a lot more than I should, probably.

I might color it, if somehow I feel compelled to...

Octopus Design Assignment

B&W Crem Soder

Hey guys, here's the last boring black & white portrait I'll probably EVER post again.  Sick of it.  I think it turned out well, though.

Oh hello there peoples. Some more arts I did this week.

3 minute quickstudies.

Free Figure Drawing Workshop

Hello all, it's nice to see some new artists. I have some news to share with everyone. In an effort to provide a resource for learning the clothed figure I have been given support to start a workshop free of charge where students may get together and draw costumed models in a more fast paced environment (meaning 2 to 5 minute poses) I'm still waiting on whether or not we will have classroom space available to us. Only drawback is that we will have to take turns modeling, or find someone to model for us. So talk to your friends. I'm sure we all know someone that likes to cosplay. Let me know if you're interested in joining up. The more people we have the better it will be.

And since it's been a while since I've posted some art, here is a sketch

I'm new here. In an effort to make me less of a recluse, Parker invited me to this blog. Thanks, Parker. After this orgy of initial activity, I will probably disappear for months, so get it while you can. These are a couple drawin's from last semester:

This is just a quick oil pastel study of Mark. He models a lot for the department at the U. He was wearing his Jockeys and this cowboy hat. If anyone asked me to model in my underwear and a silly hat, I wouldn't. But Mark is just awesome that way.

Birds have cooler bones than you or me. Charcoal bones, evidently.

Thanks for having me.

it's a'Me!

Did this last night, for today's class—it looks rather a bit like me, I think.

Dial 'er Back

Tuesday's model.  This is my progress at about the hour mark...  It looks better than it did by the time class was over.


So Much Stuff!

Here's a pretty massive update of what I've been doing recently. Stuff from Clothed Figure 1, Figure Painting, and Heads and Hands.

Here's some stuff from a few weeks ago. It's so strange to think I've improved even since then. All on 18x24 newsprint.

Today's Clothed Figure!

Some in class drawings I did in my clothed figure class today--10 minutes each. Had lots of fun with these--I love having the ability to draw from a model and make them look COMPLETELY different than they really do in real life. WOO PROGRESS

Hai there. I'm getting into the spirit of updating - meaning I'm going to throw down some sketches taken from my terribly crappy cellphone! WHATYOUSAY.

Massive Update

I figured it was high time for an update. You'll be able to tell that I've improved over the last month, or so. I love when you can actually see yourself getting better week to week. So this is stuff from my sketchbook, clothed figure drawing, still life painting, and intermediate figure drawing. Enjoy!

Last One, I Promise… For Now

This one is a little stylistic.


I know, it's hard to tell, but there is a pigeon in this picture.  The reference is some photo I found on deviantart, ten points if you can find it.
