Obviously, this guy doesn't neglect his traps when he works out.

Here is a commission I worked on over winter break. It's pretty large- 30x40. Landscapes, among many other things are a weak point of mine- but I believe this turned out relatively successful for what it is.
Also, this painting and two others of mine are entered into the chroma art competition. I would appreciate if you took the time to rate them- whatever you think of them!

Beautiful. Balanced impressionism influence; don't like it when things are too ambiguous. What intrigues me about this painting is that the vegetation is nearly all black, yet it still works somehow. Good job on the water. The sky has an odd radial flow, like a fish-eye lens photo. Please link to a larger version if you don't mind, my eyes want magnification. (clicked the 5th star for ya)

In the photo the trees are slightly darker than how they appear in real life, but im glad you think it works! haha. So much was not captured in the phot- im beginning to really realize the impact of a large work. When you can see it from a distance and then walk up to it and immerse yourself in the canvas texture- it's a great feeling.

Quiet night at work tonight:

"United Video" is the name of my store, all we had was jumbo chalk, but I think I caught his likeness pretty well.

I like to see the principles of color conservation that you've picked up from pixel art applied to this too  :blind:

I tried out india ink for the first time today.

There's obviously room for improvement.   :yell:

Meh I drew a picture today and here it is



I stopped for one reason HANDS!!  I want to learn so many freaking things and on top of that I have pixel art and animation and I'm just stumped on what to prioritize  :yell:

Also I have been doing a lot of thinking, reading and procrastinating tonight and I've learned that I am a perfectionist and that I need to stop over thinking everything and just draw/pixel.  3 men decide they need to mow their lawns 2 of the men get right at it and use different techniques and the third man ponders what would be the best way to mow his lawn and in the end the third man is still thinking of how to mow his lawn and the other two have finished already.  THAT IS ME!!!  I'm the third man!  I read this thread by some guy who was questioning his love of art and how he wanted it to just be a hobby and there was a huge discussion about it, quite the eye opener.  At least for me anyway. 

Also I spend too much time browsing the net and playing video games mostly browsing the net!  CURSE YOU BLOGS!!

Life drawing is hard. I'll try to do more when I have the time, I downloaded some cds with rotatable models so I don't have to go to a class, although I probably *should* go to class heh.
