Life's Ambition Painting



Hey, everybody! Here's this new painting I just finished. Sorry it took me a while to actually post anything for a while, but I've been quite busy with other crap.

There are many things I like when I'm painting my drawings. One is where the painting will almost look nothing like the original sketch. I sometimes don't like that 'cause the sketch has more of an energetic feel than the finished painting, but I'm actually proud that this one didn't come out as close as the original drawing. Obviously the proportions are off when I compare them both and that really never bothers me. I get real stressed out when I try to copy something from an original piece. I used to do that, but I decided to screw it and just kinda went with the flow and energy of the drawing. They're both somewhat the same thing, but they have these slight differences of course. I'm hoping to make more paintings before I make my trip back to school.

Tell me what you think! I hope you like it!

Oh and a couple of drawings I wanted to post here for a while. Who knows, you might expect some of these to be painted and prettied up!

Wow that painting came out great! I love the ears and that first skecth at the bottom, Holy Shit is that good. I have to say I'm with Benj, in that I can never find anything negative to say about your work. I'm looking forward to the next post already.

You're drawings have a very old timey kiddie book feeling to them. I like!

It's important to have some sort of narrative visual hook in stand alone paintings or drawings. Movement in story relationship, the actual work itself....

Much too static. But a sure, amazing hand, technically.

Go for depth, meaning.
