Viruses!

i like this one quite a bit. too bad i miss the first 3 hours of the pose... .\/.

the finish. a labor of work but really nothing inspiring.

It's been so long since i updated~ Mostly due to the viruses of all sorts swarming around~ First i had to live a whole weekend without my computer(O____O) because it was so "dirty" i had to let a technician reinstall my windows... and then there's that mega strong office flu that just won't go away.... Well you catch my drift.

Work's been pretty busy as well~ i doubt there will be any thing besides these life paintings for my blog for a while. but it's always nice to read the kind remarks you blog travelers make... :D thank you so much for cheering up a sneezing soul~

Some cool links to share with you. There is this MOST amazing lineup of painting/drawing workshops from Watts atelier: you have to check it out!! and after a myspace page, Jeremy has a blog as well to showcase his amazing new paintings~ :)

bye now,
sw

Shelly, these are wonderful studies! Wow.

I'm such a nerd, I love seeing the way we handle exercises, more so than I enjoy seeing professional work.

That top one has a really great feel to it. Who knows, maybe another 3 hours would have killed it!

Thank you for these refreshing nudes. I think the finished model with stockings is just inspiring enough. I have decided that I have had a life drawing shaped hole in my soul for enough years since college and it is time to fill it.

Furthermore, a friend recently bought me a bunch of mermaid cards trying to get me to play MTG with him. It worked and I was looking through the art and particularly enjoyed your watercolor merfolk. Cheers.

Hello.

I really enjoyed your work ever since reading your article in the IFX magazine (Issue 18). I look forward to meeting with you at Comic-Con this year!

I am in agreement with Mark, the one in yellow really projects attention. Good composition, color, drawing, it works. Your stuff flat out "kicketh thee butt in the most of wondrous ways."
