Love those sketches you did. I am by no means nearly as talented as someone as you, i really wish i can pull off those portrait sketches where detail is really not important, but at the same time the subject is totally recognizable, your first sketch is my favorite! I always end up trying to make every detail perfect

Haha, thanks. We cranked out soooo many sketches in that class it was ridiculous. If you have access to a model/ live sessions, the 30 second gesture sketches are what really help the most, imo. I started that course as one of those people who hold the pencil real tight and use short, jerky movements and by the end of the course, I was moving across the page effortlessly and (somewhat) accurately. I'm sure I've lost most everything I gained from that course by now though (out of practice).

Anyhow, since you bumped the thread, here's one of two pieces of a diptych I'm working on for my watercolor course... This is really only my second time watercolor painting, so there's a ton of room for improvement:

I'm really terrible at self-portraits, so this was exciting that I finally got a fairly accurate depiction of myself (and my first time trying a watercolor self-portrait too):

Alright, check these photos out... These are for a character portrait assignment I'll get criticism for tomorrow afternoon. Any guesses as to what character/role I was assigned?

Doesn't seem like anyone checks this thread any more, but here's a current work in progress that will be a part of a 7-painting 'book' I'm putting together:

Yeah, I've always kinda wanted a blog, but are there any decent looking blog hosts that are also free? I know they're relatively inexpensive, but I'm so poor right now lol. Thanks for the feedback man, I appreciate it

Anyhow here's another finalized project I finished a couple days ago... It's a book of portraits (the watercolors I've been posting) and a sleeve that holds them all:



Botched the hell out of Geddy Lee's face on that one^

The pages swivel like this:


And here's the case:


Edit: Whoaaa lol. Sorry for the massive pics.

nice work dude. been browsing this for a bit. my only real criticism is that your portraits seem to lack a certain amount of depth/realism. doing portraits is a ***** because one wrong line and it changes everything. i think whats bothering me is the hair in your portraits..it doesnt have any type of texture or depth to it.. i can see you tried to put it in, but for some reason it isnt working for me. like the portrait of Rush.. you have highlights, lowlights, etc but it still isnt coming together for me. otherwise, your work is really really nice..i especially like your abstract work

Thanks for the crit and kind feedback! I totally agree with you on the portraits- those are my attempts to better myself and begin to realize the areas I need to work on. I've got a few more finished school projects here and I'll keep posting back with finished work.



And some photos I took for fun a couple weeks ago:
