Texture Sketches!

A couple of quick paint sketches playing with texture, which is always fun. I used a couple of photo texture overlays, some "natural hair" brushes, and opaque lines. The top sketch is based off a gorgeous sculpture by Bhead, which is far more interesting than my sketch. Check his work out here.

Dissonant Pilgrim

The new year brings with it a (fittingly) direful painting of a diasporic lad who renders himself frighteningly astute on your doorstep. And he just needs to use your bathroom right quick...I feel this one went dutifully well in regards to speed and clarity of execution, simple as the composition is. Although I may have overworked it in some areas (or not enough if self criticism comes lacking). This dashing fellow joins his brethren amongst Jeff's growing collection of my (rather questionable) fine arts.
