Thought I'd bump a thread with a new image.




This is a charcoal drawing I did for the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I took about 10 hours to complete and I emailed them, saying I was a local artist who went to the Aquarium as a kid and wanted to give them something in return. This was subposted to be a gift to them. They emailed me back, asking for a preview of the image and I sent them one, a 150 MB jpg. Then they emailed me back telling me to mail it to them. I replied that I didn't want to mail it and would rather just drop it off in person. Then I got their reply back: "I'm sorry, but we do not have any use for your gift in any classes or deomonstrations." What the hell? They rejected a gift? I wanted to give them something, they could have put it in the closet for all I care, I just wanted to show my appreciation. So I gave it to my girlfriend instead. Stupid Aquarium.

It would have been cool if the Aquarium displayed though. It?s kind of weird that they asked for you to send it by mail, but when you said you drop it off they rejected it. Nice use of shades. How big is it?

very pretty, i just got back from playing at a high school coffe house, we confused, astonded and played loudly. good stuff.

i like your shark, its to bad that they didn't take it, but at lewast its in the hands of someone who will enjoy it. w007 w007.

to be more accurate, how do you people define art?

i define it as ANYTHING that intenoaly portrays a message thought or idea. needless to say that nearly everything can some how fall under this definition.

i don't have any of my work on computer tho

Wow, you got a good eye. yeah I was looking at some FE Roy art when making that. I love their stuff and needed something to practice with. And thank for the compliment, of course it's nothing compared to some of the other stuff people have here. Sam there has a really good pic there for a example. Same for Savior.

I used charcoal and had about 30 min before the model got tired of doing the pose.

To bad you guys can not see the rest of his art, it is unbelievable how good this guys is. His art is so good his parents decorate the house with it. Ever since we were kids he has been an excellent drawer. Maybe I will let him borrow my digital camera so he can take pictures of all his art so he can show you guys.

LOL, I don't have my work decorated all over my house. Well I don't mind showing my work but some of drawings are from nude models. While they are just drawings I'm not sure if it would be appropriate to show them here.

BTW Thanks for complements.

I did this today with prismacolor pencils. I was kind of bored and with the flu I can't really go out anywhere.


I might add some more to it some other time.
