Finding the FLOW



one of the hardest things about drawing is finding the flow or gesture of the pose. it has nothing to do with the individual pieces and everything to do with how rhythms transfer through the body. it usually takes me a few sketches before i decipher the correct flow. the goal of drawing for me is to emphasis that while playing down the "bumps and lumps" that may be there, but don't contribute to the idea.

insightful. i gotta say, i'm glad to see you're blogging. i've been a fan for a while and your gestures absolutely blow me away. i wanted to be an illustrator, but it's guys like you that keep me in check. i'm probably better off as an animator anyway... no oil paint fumes.

thanks for sharing your thoughts.

I'd just like to say I am enjoying where you are going with your work. I have a poster of a Red-Sonja-ish character you did for a Dragonlance calendar, and it is one of my favorite paintings. I haven't seen nearly enough of your work on the net, and I'm looking forward to following this blog.

I'm really impressed with your stuff man. You have so many talents all wrapped up into one. You can really tell you spent a lot of thought and effort into making each sketch/piece into it's own idea. What can I say man, I really enjoy your work. I will bookmark your blog and make sure I keep comin' back for more. Thanks for the coffee breaks in the morning, REALLY fun stuff.

If you get time, please check out my blog and let me know what you think. Thanks!
