Subject title: Gryephon

I was thinking about starting my own sketchbook here.… I’ll post some studies, and maybe some of my comical works here.


This one I made for artists that are considering pointy chins as an art style, it explains the good and bad about having pointy chins. It's things every artist should know.

This is just some recent value study I did. (Obviously reference were used)

Really? Well it does have some uses, like removing head cancer.

Anyway, nothing funny today... worked on a value study of every guy's favorite pop singer, Taylor Swift.

If you have head/brain cancer and shop off your head. Wouldn't you just be a decapeted head, still with head cancer? This would however depend on what defines a person. Is it the body or the head/mind.
I would say it is usefull for not having to worry about being in shape, or worry about what clothes to wear on a hot date.:]

I don't know, I was just trying to be funny. Though, if in the case of the head defining you... Then I guess it would be effective for removing breast cancer.

Worked on another piece... I was trying to make the most interesting man in the world more visually interesting. I actually used an over-painting technique on this one, so I didn't go the hardcore nerdy route like in some of my other work.

This is a WIP of batman water skiing, its a parody off of one of my favorite artist, Jim Lee. Still got a lot of carving to do on it.

Really nice value work! I love the painting you did for your avatar. I like the way you highlight the edges minimalistically in your paintings. T-swift looks great!

I know you were trying to be funny, and you were. I was just trying to get to the bottom of that joke. I had ben trailing that joke for years and I finally thought I had a breakthrough on the case. To put an end to it I need to know how the joke works, what makes it tick. Does the joke make an audience laugh, does it make you get the girl at the end of the night, does it tickle it's own funny bone? ... I...I...I Just have to know.

Look, if you want to know how to analyze a joke... I'll illustrate how I normally do it. Hope you don't have anything against gore.

Yeah, all you need is John Cage's 4' 33" playing in the background, and everything is perfect for the viewing experience.

Daredevil. Experimenting around with opacity brush. The idea was to create a kind of "blind abstract form" sensation, kind of a see and not see feeling... Granted turned out the daredevil sees things more like a world on fire instead of black and white, so this is ended up being an incorrect interpretation. But it was fun to experiment around with opacity, I usually don't mess around with opacity.

This one was inspired by this video. Illustrating the random stupidity one finds on the internet.

Just saw Batman vs Superman. Most of the movie i liked but thought the ending was well.... Random, and character development mediocre. I'll try and elaborate though an overpainting\manipulation.
