Your drawings amaze me. Friend of Deb's.....Julie Bais
Hey man awesome stuff. I have two questions, what's the real life size of your figure drawings and do you scan them in or take pictures?
Hey Julie, ThanksMy life drawings are done on 18 x 24 smooth newsprint, and I photograph them.
Hey Erik!only charcoal pencil, right?no blender, fingers or other things..do you use just pencil strokes?tell me your techniques in a few words..thanks
On these I did use just charcoal pencil, but I do use some smudging. I use my fingers, and it is very deliberate and minimal. I try not to just smudge, it is generally more like a single brush stroke with my thumb.E-
Steve,Thanks man, you have some nice work. I saw it on Jon Schindehette's blog.E-
i love your style. im doing some art a level and have never had a proper art teacher, your work is great because your style is really individual, did you teach yourself? ive only had a little practice drawing figures so i had to research for inspiration.your work is defo one of my inspirations, it looks like you design album covers or something :)
Goroundthebend,Thanks for your kind words. I am not self taught, I was mainly trained at Watts Atelier, the same school I now teach at. You can check it out at www.wattsatelier.comE-
