The portraits you paint are so rich. Their fun and exaggerated, but also full of genuine depth and character. You can tell there are some interesting stories behind those faces. Nice cathedral too.

Sweet job on the civil war dudes. Reminds me of some cool concept stuff for a vid game or something.

I love the Civil War heads. Your caricatures of people look better than actual people. These are great.

So you're sketching churches from life in your sketchbook. Now you are a real artist.

Great great heads!!! I dig the expressions on each of them, we could easily imagine a lot of stories just by looking at only one of them!!
great job as usual, Ryan!

Shawn Escott said...

Scott Altmann said...

Thanks for sharing these.

ah, good ol' sketching. The best way to keep sane. Love these man. You've got a sense of dignity in each of those faces.

Todd Oman said...

Pretty awesome, but you already know that.

David Malan said...

Very nice drawings. The Forrest is nice, I like it's shapes. I've had a Butler photo in my file for a while now with plans to draw it. Back to the drawing board I guess.

Really nice Ryan. I love seeing your finished paintings, but it's always so interesting to see your sketches too. It's very cool how you indicate light and shadow while still keeping your linework very loose.
