This kid. Is ridiculous.
16 year old Miles Johnston. My buddy sent me his sketchbook link which shows his first post when he was around 14 back in 2007. Almost three years later, this kid has been featured in ImagineFx and is already on his way to the top.
Havent been blown away by good artists in a while...
Miles' Blog and Sketchbook thread
Well, when I went to do another self portrait this morning, I looked at my Wednesday post with horror. I almost wanted to delete it, but then realized that there is only going forward and it motivated me to do a series of these. I also learned that one of the challenges to doing a self portrait is being a good model, my head continues to shift toward the screen I am painting on, and tilt up, elongating and narrowing the proportions. Now I know what Masha goes through when I try to get her to sit still for a sketch, it goes against every impulse to fidget around. hopefully I can do enough of these to get a consistent likeness. And find some other models....
