I love the shading/lighting in this one (also a lovely pic, of course!)
Thank you, Tad! I've been working on trying to get a better sense of light and shading.
Hey all! I know I have been pretty quiet on these boards for a while now. Life is busy/crazy/hectic as always, but I still check in from time to time and I have still been creating artwork. Just thought I'd share a couple of pieces that I completed recently and posted on my DA page. Hope you guys enjoy!
Love your art! Awesome stuff!
Thank you so much, happily_married. It took me a long time to build up the confidence to start sharing my artwork publicly. I am always happy to get positive feedback from those who appreciate it.
It is really nice. Thank you for sharing.
My pleasure.. thanks for taking time to check it out!
Just thought I'd share another quick one I did today.
I like them huge (pun intended). But really, it's nice that the pics you're posting are large.
These are great! Keep at it. I know from personal experience that it can be difficult to post art (I'm a writer myself) so kudos to you for throwing these up here. You mentioned that you've done these quickly--some in as little as an afternoon. Wow. Impressive! Thanks for sharing these!
Thank you, Broseph! I really appreciate the encouraging words!
I just now discovered this thread. All of this artwork is really outstanding (I especially like the reclining nude). The way you draw the faces and eyes is very expressive - even a little bit Manga-like. I will have to check out your work on Deviant Art.
Hey thanks, Jerry! Yeah please do check out my DA page as I have a lot more stuff posted over there. Be sure and say hello.
Just thought I'd share a couple of pieces I did recently. These ones I really wanted to treat more like paintings rather than drawings or sketches, and I really tried to experiment with light and shading. They still look kind of cartoony or comic-bookish, but I guess that's just part of my style.
They look perfect. You do incredible work. I understand being your own worst critic but man...I wish I could come close to being able to create that kind of art!
Thank you for sharing!
I love your style! Keep it up!
I think these latest ones are perfect - and SO sexy! Maybe you think they look cartoony because of the colors, but I could see either one of these as the cover to a really great graphic (emphasis "graphic"!) novel. Now you just need the story to go with it. And thanks for the link to DeviantArt.
I have long been my own worst critic indeed; it's something I have had to learn to keep in perspective. It's good to be realistic in your self evaluations, and not inflate your abilities beyond what they are - but it's also very easy to let your criticisms give ways to fear and indecision and end up never actually doing anything. I do my best to just push through and do the best I can with whatever I have to work with, knowing that no matter what I put out, my next one will be better.
Thank you for the kind and encouraging words, H.M.!
Thank you, AmyJo!
It's funny you say that, Jerry. I've been thinking a lot lately about ideas for a comic or graphic novel I could create with my artwork. I come up with some story ideas, but I always run into a roadblock somewhere along the way and I get derailed. Maybe I can try to collab with one of the many talented writers who submit their work here. At this point I'd be open to almost anything.
Those recent couple immediately made me think of the femme fatale in a noir type detective story.
