Sketches, thoughts and other... things.

I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly.  :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy!  You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through.  You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way!  Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!

Love your art, love yourself!

Amazing!

Mouth drawing tutorial, tumblr!

I take questions if you have ‘em.

Going to show this to my class. They’ve been asking about drawing mouths and the muscular description on the second page will really “put a smile” on there faces.

Literately.


…See they are drawing faces with mouths… and this will show…

Oh you get it. Good.
Thanks Dianekraus!

…and here’s one done by yours truly to round off the week. I don’t normally paint this dark but there’s no better time to flex your pallet. As you can see by the process drawing below I started with a much rounder head and thinned it out about half way. The whole thing probably took 4-5 hours including the writing the post and compiling the process image Thanks to everyone that has drawn me and allowed me to draw them this last 30 years!

These where created by James Stewert. An amazing cartoonist and a very cool dude.

Not all drawing are faltering but this one was created by an industry legend. Mitch Manzer is the real cartoon deal AND the creater of Sharky the Shark Dog, from the show Eek the cat. More of his stuff on http://www.mitchmanzer.com/
