Sketchbook: Olympics 2 by Maxahiss Sketchbook: Olympics 2 by Maxahiss
Here's the next set of pages in my draw-a-day sketchbook featuring the Olympians of the past Winter Olympics. I'm still continuing this themed montage in my sketchbook and should have the next couple pages up by tomorrow.

Yeah ^^ I like coloring with white. It gives it a different feel to the art, I think.

This is a beautiful piece of work, even if it resides within a sketch book. I think that a lot of people take for granted how powerful mere sketches and sketchbooks can be. You've only proved that with this piece. I really enjoy the graphic quality that you've chosen to use. It works even better because the paper in your book is more of a manila-beige color so the white pops off the page. The white and the black is just a really strong touch.

I really can't say enough about this piece, just that it's absolutely wonderful. I can't wait to see more of your work!

Oh, and another point I wanted to make: The composition you've managed to create here is visually pleasing. Also the balance of white to black to neutral paper color is much better constructed in these particular pages in comparison to the other two that you have up.

I am just in love with this. :heart:

Nice observations on sketches and the mid-tone paper. And I'm quite thrilled this had a strong impact on you. Thanks very much!

Thanks. That's the same sort of description I would conjure when describing watching the Olympics.

I don't mind at all! Thanks for including it. I actually read your journal entry, and it must be such a privilege to have worked with him in as much capacity as you have. He seems to have a good heart and to be a genuine person.

I was very lucky to have such a great student... and truth is, I have a LOT of wonderful students. His class in particular. We became very close because I was diagnosed with cancer, so they were always very caring. I was able to work with Evan for two years, and the second year it was just him and I. Every once and a while we would talk about what he was doing... what an adventure. He always held it together. He even gave me a couple tapes of him competing for the Junior, and Junior World Olympics. I knew then that he was going to do it. I made my whole family sit down and watch them with me :) They loved it as much as me :D And still do...

You're lucky to have had that experience with him, and it sounds like he has some artistic talent. He certainly performed phenomenally well at the Olympics and was the top competitor, hands down.

I am lucky... and it has been an experience to see how hard he worked and how motivated he was to get at the top, and know the humble background of where he started. He was always excellent, but made everyone feel good about who they were too.
