Oil pantings

Here are my first three Oil pantings.

I just started a new session of classes, and this time I am trying to do things I have never tried.

These were about 2 1/2 hour paintings, never got to render these to a finish, but I am learning a lot.

old life drawing

A life drawing I did, but never finished.
this one was still in the measurement stages...I really enjoy long poses, I find it to be a meditation of sorts.

The tracing is from my teacher Ron just showing me some sweet stuff,

Still life

Still life from my "Drawing in color" class, About 2 1/2 hours of work, it was a mask and a skull.
Colored paper, B&W charcoal, and conte crayon.
I was pretty pleased with it, enjoy.

Madame butterfly

I recently saw the movie Kung Fu Panda, and let me tell you, SWEET!
Before I even saw the movie I had been blown away by an artist named Damon Bard, he does sculpture maquettes that are just amazing.
Damon did character turn-arounds for "Panda" and as I was researching his work it inspired me to make my own maquettes for a book I am currently illustrating. So here's a little piece I did using a couple mediums like sculpey, colored paper, and foam pads...she's going to be the butterfly in the book.
"Madame's journey home"

Here's a little "sculpiture" I did on Indy.
Not really much of a Harrison Ford likeness, but it's not to bad for 1 hour 5 inches and no paint.
I like to do this every once and awhile, I think it's one of the most beneficial excercises there is for drawing Caricatures, or anythong else.

Sorry the pictures are pretty bad....

supa' baby

Here is a live drawing I did the other day, I have been drawing live caricatures here and there, on and off for about 2 1/2 years.
I started out working with an airbrush when I worked in MN for "MAD" man Tom Richmond.
I now use art stixx (a slightly larger, woodless colored pencil) at my current employer.
It's really tough to say what I like more...I think both can teach you somthing, and both give you the ability to accomplish unique look.
I'm really excited to go back to airbrush and see if I can apply any of the sweet techniques I've learned with the stixx.
I'm am really lucky to work with a very talented artist here in Cali, who is one of the best I've seen with the art stixx, so with my friend Marco's help, I feel I'm getting the concept.

Sorry about the picture, the one of the drawing was with camara, but I took the one of the little girl on a friends cell phone. I didn't really get the same expression in the picture as much as when I was drawing her....darn.
