Fuck it or fight it. Its all the same.

These will be the last sketches I post on here for a while. I am sure you guys are getting sick of them.

Notes on the Facelift painting

There are three people I have trouble getting anywhere near close to drawing their face right. The hardest is the one person I need to know how to draw for the painting I wanna do for my favorite South Carolina girl for here birthday. It is a ways away, but I will not paint it I don't have her face near perfect. I have been drawing her every day for three months. Today's will be the only ones you guys will see, because the other ones are awful. These aren't too much better. Her eyes play games with my head.

Original Idea

Face one

Face Two

Two more weeks and I will figure out where I am going wrong. I just hate the fact that I can't draw certain people.

Random Sketches

I'll post some more when I finish my virgin mary painting. Maybe.

I need someone a person to talk too, Someone who cares and loves, could it be you?

Virgin Mary progress - Printing press wheels, heart, blue and red gown done.

It pisses me off more than anything when I can't draw people.
"Fuck, I can't draw her"
I also erased her like 100 times before I just quit.

Here are some sketches for the next painting I want to do. It is roughly based on this song. Download and listen it is fantastic.
Terrordactyls - Facelift
Here are some prelim sketches. Which mouth do you like? The pen drawings and the pencil drawings have different style mouths.

Mouth 1

Mouth 2

Studies and face drawings

I am pretty sure I am going out of my mind, but what happens happens. Van Gogh cut off his ear after Gauguin abandoned him for Tahiti. Luckily for me I love no one to give a chopped off ear too.

Here are some studies I did for the skin colors of my Virgin Mary Painting.

Skin Tone 1 - Red Based

Skin Tone 2 - Yellow Based

Skin Tone 3 - Buff Titanium Based


Here are some faces I drew for practice. If one looks like you it maybe, but I draw faces weird so if it doesn't don't be offended.

Face 1

Face 2

Face 3

Last but not least some random body parts
Torsos and Legs
