Tom Waits, ink drawing, 8”x10”

Tom Waits, ink drawing, 8”x10”

This is really good! Tom Waits has been my favorite artist since i was 15. always love seeing him mentioned, or as is the case drawn perfectly. On Reddit.

I literally have all of Tom Waits' Discography... and thats a lot.

Hes such an interesting and poetic man. But also very down to earth and good humored.

I remember a story Artie Lange told that when he worked with Tom Waits on Mystery Men, he really wanted to ask him what his song "Jersey Girl" was inspired by... hoping hed get some fascinating bizarre tale. So when he asked him, Toms response was

"My fuckin wife is from Newark"

This is great. Also, shout out to Mr. Waits, he turns 68 today!

What one song? oof that is extremly tough to to choose,as i think most are excellent. so i'll just list a few you don't want to miss out on.

Love the tones, can't stop looking at the details. Good work!

Girl, charcoal, 9x12

Beautiful! The charcoal looks almost painterly. I especially like the blending in her face, as well as her dark eyes and strands of hair.

sick work my dude. watch out for some of the fabric cause they are underdeveloped and fabric can do wonders for your drawing.

I love how they capture the emotionless glance this woman has the cigarette in her mouth a symbol of rebellion and her messy hair an indication of carefree reckless living. I am in awe of this piece

edgey ;) I love the details on the clothes and the face. The hands may need a bit more work though. Overall wonderful piece.

Holy shit Op this is beautiful. The way you blended the colors. I’m a watercolorist myself I know the medium can be very tricky, but you’ve done a fantastic job. It’s actually pretty mesmerizing. Those poppy’s in the background also flow beautifully with your painting I️ just really love it.

Thank you. Of course color blending is very tricky. It costed me several papers to get to this.

"Subway Boys". An unfortunate coincidence.

To be honest if this was a show on Netflix ,I would watch that shit

Apparently Sonic Drive-In was founded by a guy named Troy, and the commercials once featured a carhop named Katie. A smidge oblique in my opinion.

Lost on Troy and Katie. What do they represent?

Light and snow. Watercolor. 65x50cm

Although it is clearly water colors, the amount of detail almost fooled my brain into thinking it was a real shot.

Nice job!

Capturing dramatic light is so hard to do with watercolor, yet when you pull it off like this - oh man is it on another level. Your dry brush technique adds so much depth and texture to those trees too. I can tell you're not even cheating with this photo (very true to color). This is one of my favorites for sure - pure nostalgia for me.

Well I have been following you closely, and I can definitely see progress, so you're doing something very right! I'm more focused on portraits and figures personally, so I look at guys like Marcos Beccari and simply wonder, "how is he using the same medium and achieving that lighting?!"

Watercolor takes faith, in the sense that, when you look at what the masters are capable of, it is an undeniably gorgeous medium that can achieve the status of oil paintings.

If you ever make prints of this - look into touching it up a bit digitally. I think watercolor is really receptive to this.

I want to be there. Great work.

My 17 year-old daughter made a charcoal and pencil drawing of a motorcycle engine.

Holy shit, looks like a photo.

This is amazing. She's got some genuine talent there.

Here are some progress pics, and yes, she took the photo herself first. Progress Nice try though!

My sentiments exactly.

Hey guys I'm the 'artist' if you could say that. Yes I gave permission to post this so it's fine, I actually appreciate it. I'll post the proof when I get home if I have any since it was for a school project and I don't current have it on me. 

Last time I posted some art to reddit I did get lots of positive feedback but the negative ones did get to me since I was younger, hopefully I can take criticism much better now!

I'm 18 right now if anyone was wondering and I did that piece for my A level project and took 15 hours under exam conditions in bloody silence. 

Don't current have a deviantart as I never felt a reason to have one. Maybe if I can find whatever art I have left I'd start one. Don't go expecting any paintings  though as  pencil  is my jam. Thanks for the positive feedback so far!

edit: Here's the proof I guess, just a close-up of the multiple layers is all I could find. https://i.imgur.com/DfPmnz1.jpg

edit2: Holy crap guys this blew up, thanks for the feedback and support. I created a deviantart profile for now that i'll upload my drawings to later! 'cup-caik' if you're interested

EXAM CONDITIONS?

Fucking hell. You've got skill and nerves of steel. Tell me you had this idea beforehand and didn't just come up with it on the spot?

Very impressive for exam conditions. Great likeness and expression, the torn paper is a clever touch of personality. I wish there were darker tones in the face (mouth, nostrils, hair) but other than that its super cool. Love it

Haha thanks. Don't worry it's not as terrible as it seems. We were given 3 slots of 5 hours (3 days) to complete it. We worked on the project for a month or two beforehand with ideas and such, but to be perfectly honest I had only come up with the final design the day before. The hardest part was having to tear it, definitely broke into a sweat there.

Wasn't this painting in a Spongebob Episode?

Yeah ^ I had a college project that was to copy an artwork or create your own for humanities, or write an essay on Hamilton. Chose a painting :)

Cool!
