I haven't been sharing......

hey all, I noticed that though i have shared a few things, there are still some pieces that i never posted here to get some feedback on. with that said this is the first of a few things im going to throw up soon. For those who dont know its Michael Weston from the show "Burn Notice". I started watching it recently and pretty much got obsessed so i decided to draw the main character. oh yeah thanks for all feedback on other things ive posted and feel free to check out my personal blog at

Bye John

f0r those that dont know, one of the best announcers ever has decided to call it quits this week. thats right no more john madden. Its kind of strange becasue i actually decided to do this painting before he decided to retire. I really did it because his birthday was last week, oh well guess it serves two purposes now. anyway i just wanted to share with everybody

This is of the Swedish pop group ABBA, who were big in the 1970's and 80's.

I did some colour studies in pastel before going digital, which helped a lot.

Thom Yorke and a baby

Not together, that would be weird! It's been a while since I posted. It's cool to see all the 'fresh blood' on here doing the same exercises I did during Jason's class, some awesome work being developed here. Here are my latest paintings, Thom Yorke, and my niece, Abigail (not a caricature, but a great value study!)

Happy Birthday Marlin

April 3rd is the birthday of Marlin Brando. Here is a drawing i did to post on the NCN web site. I am going to do more work on it, but liked it for a morning drawing.
