I really shouldn't buy sketchbooks bigger than my scanner, it's such a pain joining scans together. This must be the only time I've ever gotten a picture I like from oil pastels, but I used chalk pastels as well, which helped. This work is licenced under a Creative Commons Licence.

This looks great!
I just have to comment on this one!!
I like the bit of red in it. not too much.

anyway.. I Think I like oil pastels more than chalks. chalks make my hands turn every color possible...

:-) Logan Pickup replies: "Thank you! Yeah, I like this one, I'm even getting it framed 2 Yay me! I can't use oil pastels so well, you get way more solid colours with chalks. And getting your hands all colourful is half the fun! Sure, it makes a mess out of the sink washing up, but you can draw another picture just with the colour left on your fingers 2"

I love the contrasting. Nice blending with the shadows! I love the creepy mood this gives off. Very cool. I wish I was as succesful as you with pastels....-_-

:-) Logan Pickup replies: "Thanks!"

I like your shading it's really good here. You should use oil pastels more often you know, cause with your style it seems to work out for the best. This would also make for an awsome pic to use on your website. I recommend you use it in a layout or something. It's just begging for attention, I tell you. SCREAMING for it. It's also interesting how you did the body. It gives it real orginality on how it's a definate shape but kind of a indefinate one at the same time. the neck is coolies too. I'm very jelouse, just so you know, so I'll be going to lock myself in a closet and somehow manage to create something even better. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

:-) Logan Pickup replies: "Funny you should mention that, I'm in the middle of redesigning my website. You're right, it would work. Have to think about it now."

This one I Really, really like. It´s kinda different from the rest of your artwork (kinda dark), and it´s... Very Interesting.

:-) Logan Pickup replies: "Thanks! I think it's one of my better pieces, myself."

Wow that hand is amazing, this is a very moving piece even if it is a bit dark. you're irony in all your pictures never ceases to make me smile. I like this one better than the orc one i think *smiles*

:-) Logan Pickup replies: "Thank you, that means a lot coming from you 2 And as for the irony... well, you know me, I can't stay serious for the length of time it takes to finish a picture 12"
