html<\a> I think you're trying to show sagginess, but they should still line up with the armpits. Also, the shoulder muscles are too big. Hope this helps a bit, though if it were my pic, i'd probably be too lazy to fix it. Maybe you could do it when you change the paint color... ;)

Probably won't fix the color because i've moved on to other projects and just won't get around to it, and on the anatomy, don't remember what i was going for at the time

but by looking at it i think it partly might've been sagginess, and partly me being stupid and making his collar bones to big

but the anatomys all over the plac on that one, if you notice his belly button is somewhere below his hips :-P he has all sorts of problems

cool, over a thousand views, closing in on a hundred replies, thats fun

sorry guys, i'm horrible at updating this thing, here's a piece i painted while waiting for paint to dry on another canvas i'm working on,

and just an update, i finished the munny, it's being submitted to this show now, along with 6 other new pieces of mine, so when i get them back i'll post up pictures of them

plus i'm geeked for this weekend, might be helping my friend Jamie spray a mural for a local museum, Jamie was a big graffiti artist who tagged SERG, he practically made graffiti big in pittsburgh, so i'm a little excited

You've got some really gnarly stuff on here. I really like it. Those sketches of your hands are where its at if you wanna learn shading quick. Just fill up a couple notebooks with drawings like that of your hand in as many poses as you can think of.
Cant wait to see more stuff, you've got cool paintings.

thanks for the compliments, and i like to think i'm getting a little better at shading and such, just a smidge though

here's a watercolor i did for this "What does Jazz look like?" contest, i don't really listen to jazz at all, but i figured do something music themed and i have a chance, top 3 people get an iPod nano, and since my mp3 player broke 3 months ago, i've been without music :(

so i'm banking on this :-P

eh, here's a self portrait i did today.

it sticks to my theme of self portraits that vaguely resemble what i actually look like.

not sure if i like it or not, what do you guys think?

I read the text before I saw the picture and frankly, the thought of a self portrait in your style scared me a bit, this was very nice though. Although I don't like the hair very nice it's got nice facial features. I like the eyes the most, very good.


I need Monet, to buy DeGas to make my Van Gogh. I tried to Hale a cab but my Whistler didn't Turner 'round.

haha thanks, i've done one other self-portrait, that anyone who saw my self-portrait thread would've seen, i think this one is alot better, although it looks a little less like me.

and i agree with you about the hair, i am a little iffy about it, but kinda represents how my hair is right now (washed out blue/green, that sticks out everywhere) and i'm not to good at drawing hair, something i need to work on :-P

Heres one of the canvases i had painted.

well i didn't paint the background, the painting was this really ugly non-objective painting that was donated to the organization that i take classes and intern at.

so i grabbed it and painted on it to make it better :)

you can't tell to well from the picture, but the guy looks really drippy, after painting on the blue i just got water and ran it over it so the color would run, it looks cool, to bad it doesn't really show

yeah, thats something i'm starting to work on, currently i'm trying out actually blending colors and using value in painting instead of just using that blocky shading.

i have my munny with me, just my camera needs batteries, but when i get some i'll post it up right away

You've got some really great stuff on here, particularly your paintings. I really wish that I could do things in the style that you've got; it's kind of a combination between graffiti art and underground comix styles.

This one has got to be my favorite, although, it's pretty hard to choose:

http://bbsimg.ngfiles.com/14/15542000/ng bbs47bcd000a313d.jpg

Also, I hate to shamelessly promote projects I'm involved in, but, you're pretty good with the grotesque, so, you think you might consider contributing something to the Metropolis Disaster Art Collab? We could really use something to offset all of the slick computer assisted art that's made it in so far.

Anyway, please keep posting stuff as you get it done, because if you hadn't posted in my thread I don't think I ever would have caught you art thread, and it's really got some of the better stuff on the forum at the moment, I think.

First of all, really cool Munny deco; I like that you ripped its arms off and put crayons in there.

Regarding the collab, at minimum, you need a monster and one building being destroyed, and those have to be colored. You can probably get away without having to do a full background. I'm not sure if that answers your question or not, so, you might want to check with McJesus since it is his project.
