I drew an eye.

Not sure why.

EDIT: I just realised that rhymes, not intended.

Laterallateral:
You didn't happen to study illustration & design at Dawson in the early 90's, did you? You're style reminds me of a guy I went to school with, who looked a lot like you (he had dreadlocks at the time). I can't remember what his name was. I could just be having a senoir moment and creating a false memory, though!

I'm afraid not, pappy. Wink

I was living in Ottawa (born an raised), back then.

I'm flattered you think my drawing skills are reminiscent of academic training, though.

A digital painting type thing, this ones called "The Gamer". It's about that special time (wahey) when it's the following two things:

a) 1994
b) 1:00 am

and there's nothing but you, your snes and a shite old telly where you have to write the channels next to the dial since it only has a dial and a volume knob. (This was my childhood gaming experience).



I'm pretty much done with it, trying to do the lighting on the bloke was getting me all frustrated.

That's great, Zaphod! reminds me of the early 90s when I would play Doom for 12 hours straight on my 486 until my retinas were peeling off and I'd end up going to bed hating myself for having wasted a whole day... (good times!)

Woo I decided to stay up all night to acclimatize to night shifts next week and doodled some shit in my book, with felt markers made specifically for someone not yet one quarter my age. Booya.

Beatles pictures are abundant so they're fun to use as references. Not that it seems as though I used a reference, though, by how sloppy it is. The point was to make something as fast as I could and to not worry about which colour values I happened to be picking up for what area, but to worry about how true to the original (greyscale) image the brightness/contrast intensities were. I don't know if it worked, or if I even explained correctly what it was I was trying to do. You be the judge.



A skull, in acid rave colours. I had printed off dozens of pictures of reference skulls for my last completed charcoal drawing, and last night when I was bored, they happened to be the first thing I found.



Don't even know what to say about this one. I got bored with drawing drawing so I wrote something in cursive pretending like I can be elegant, then started adding wavy lines. Before thinking it through, I chose to use grey (starting right underneath the "yw" of the first anyway) but that pen was too leaky, I needed one that was almost dry. The skin pink was drier and provided the consistency of ink I needed, but when all of the pink lines were done I still had to do something with the dark grey lines I started with or it would throw everything off.

I experimented and came up with what I think is a pretty cool solution to fix the problem area that turned into something of what I would consider a front line technique if I continue to entertain this particular avenue of drawings. I won't explain it, if I tried to explain it I would end up writing a short novel of my theory only to discover someone's already condensed it down to a single word. v:raise:v

For some reason this one reminds me of the work of Robert Williams, once you see the pig/grandma nibbling away at the second anyway, the whole thing becomes reminiscent of the type of chrome Williams painted for whatever reason.

There is this saying anyone can learn to draw, but only few know how to paint.
Yes..
There is the difference in the color and composition.
(thats what my drawing teacher said)

Handen, you continue to blow me away.

Thank you. Smile I've inquired at several tattoo parlours about having my work tattooed on my body only to be turned away because it's too intricate.

Here's something else I've been working on, and it still in progress.

at first I was really psyched to see this thread resurrected. then I realized all my old artwork was lost when my computer crashed. Mad
eventually, I should be able to get some of it back from old computers. what a pain in the ass though.
