HATE!, that's fucking rad. How long have you been doing those?

Thanks, man.  That was my first one.

hella bad ass, could you add the arm-guard to the predator?

I considered it because it has those two cool blades that come out but arm guard thing is on his forearm just below the wrist so if I was keeping it close to the movie than you wouldn't have seen it where the wrist is severed.

Starting my second comic book thing today.  Man-Thing and Werewolf By Night.

Thank you, straight and Abbas! It's still a little unreal to think my work will be on a board. I don't think it'll really hit me till I see one in the wild. I've got a ton of stuff I'm currently working on for the showing that I'll be posting on here. There's so much damn talent in here it's a shame that SLAP art show is in limbo.

HATE! post when finished, please!

Forgot to say congrats!  I can't imagine having art on a board, that would be such a crazy feeling.

Thanks, HATE! Yeah, it's gonna be pretty rad to look at. This entire experience still feels a little unreal.

Really sick doublesteveburger!! I'm stoked for you. Your artwork is awesome!

I forgot to post those last ones on here so here they come...

3x80x60cm, Acrylic Background +Oil "me" over canvas.


Also some progress on a new one i'm doing. I still need to retouch the background and a few details. All oil this time.

So if anyone here is interested, I recently discovered I can print really nice posters of pretty much anything you can send me. No setups or minimums. Size is 11x17"

That looks like your typical cardstock print from Staples/FedEx, but still rad nonetheless! How'd that come about?

boredom at work, really. I use a garment printer to make shirts, but recently I've been pushing all sorts of things through it. I have managed to print skateboards, but thats still way work in progress. How much would a commercial print place charge for it? I have no idea what to ask for. Hah.

Thank you!! I'm really trying... that last one gave me so much work. Not the figure, that is just the normal thing for me and i do it quite quick too, but the background. I had this idea of doing a fade in it, from yellow to dark orange and started with acrylic. That shit was the worst idea ever. It came out so bad that i was ashamed of it. My acrylics arent the best too so that should be one of the reasons. They work well for full color tho. I covered in white again and did the background with oil this time. It came out better but it is a little off still, i did a new layer but i need to do another one at least. Than it's full finished. I am a little busy with other classes now but i want to finish it
tomorrow and start 2 new ones (that i have to show them in 30th june, gotta work fast!!)

Dont question your stuff! Everybody has a different style and a different taste. Working hard is the only way to improve your stuff.
I am at a Art highschool. I learnt a lot in the first 2 years but now i think i'm learning just by myself, experimenting stuff and see if i like, finding my style. I may keep this style for a while, because i found that it works with my kind of painting and i like the result, but next year i dunno, i can change it radically!

Update, finished:

Oil on canvas, 120x80cm.

Dude, that is fantastic.  Oils are so hard to get used to (and expensive to get used to.)

Thanks guys!! Oils are indeed hard to master and expensive. All the mediums, the brushes (bristles are costly), the canvas, etc... i'm lucky that the kind of Painting i do is rather thin and i dont waste that much tubes of oil. You can also try to buy just the student range stuff, its much more affordable (not as good but works). It's what i do since i'm a cheap ass mo'fucker...

Those paintings are incredible, holy shit!

Also, Frenchfry, it's okay to question your stuff but it's crucial to be constructive with your own questioning. Don't let it turn you off. Keep that productivity goin and you'll find your own style before you know it.  :)

Do any PALS here have a history with safely shipping art in a cost-efficient manner? I'm starting a webstore pretty soon but I've always been hesitant because I'm aware of how tedious of a process shipping art can be.

I'm referring to shipping canvas paintings, painted decks, framed artwork, etc.


Thought I'd throw it out there on here and talk to people who might be familiar with the process before researching random sites on Google. Any tips are appreciated, thanks!

I'm trying to do a contour portrait of my friend, but I'm not very good and I've never done contour drawings before so she keeps looking like a hag. Any tips for contour drawing?

If you're unframed, rolled is always the way to go with a sheet of tissue paper over the artwork.  For framed, your best best is to go with the packaging that is actually made for them, where it looks like a little box within a box.  Also, bubble wrap is your friend.  For sources on all that shit, I'd hit up actual galleries as they mail a lot of art.  Good luck, man.  It can get expensive if you're not going bulk.  If you have the option, team up with another gallery so you can go bulk.  I've got a homie who runs a record label and he and two other labels go in together on shipping supplies all the time so they can order in bulk.

Noted! Thanks for the tips, HATE!

Last question for anyone who's familiar, what's most cost efficient to go through? FedEx, USPS, or UPS?
