Avalanche drawing session

I went to the drawing session this morning and tried to apply some of the things I've been learning lately from the tutorial sessions by Adam Ford and Dave McClellan. I painted this almost entirely with Painter's "Loaded Palette Knife," because I wanted a different effect than in my usual paintings.

Lunch study

Some guys at work have been doing these studies during lunch, and I was happy about the way this one turned out, so I'm going to post this. Done from photo reference, no color picker, about 45 minutes.

I'd post the photo, but I don't know if it's copyrighted, so you'll just have to imagine.

Gangster progress shot 2

I want to spend a lot more time adjusting how the values work on this thing, but I need to post something.

Gangster progress

I'm working on this for the Avalanche blog. I've been really busy at work and haven't had much time to do things for this blog, so I'm going to post progress shots of this piece, and hopefully someone will find it useful.

This is inspired by a tutorial/training Ryan Wood has been doing at work, so I'm trying something a little different. I did this drawing while standing on the aisle of the bus in heavy traffic last night, but that's not why it's messy. That's just how I draw.

Cute Baby

I did this picture of our newborn son for his birth announcement. I'm not usually good at drawing babies or kids, but I like how this one turned out.
