    Thanks dude
    And don't worry - I'm like the king of wasting time - so if I can manage I think anyone must be able to.

    This was just to get the basic idea down. I still have to shoot my own reference for the Gates. Going to drive up to Stanford for that, and visit some old friends.

    Wish gas was cheaper right now.

    I've been slacking on the masters studies here, so I set aside a couple hours today to work on one.

    Sargent seems to be the man lately, so I did pencil quick study after his drawing of Jascha Heifetz, 1918. Spent most of the afternoon trying to get the face right, but once that was done the second part was a lot more fun. I just listened to my favorite strings players in itunes and tried to scribble along until it felt right.

    Hey!

    Just got done looking through your progress thread, I've never really taken any art classes or really got into this whole art thing so as much as I'd like to I can't really say anything positive or constructive or intellectual nonetheless besides that these look amazing. Especially the ones on the first page, there's so much to look at, and it's really difficult to nitpick all the little details. It's like there's good.. flow? I don't know if I used that term correctly but that's what it seems to me. I also like your reference drawings, but I like your creative ones more ;] good job! and thanks for the inspiration!

    cheers!

    I’ll take that. If nothing else I aspire to good flow

    The main thing I’ve been trying to do lately is push my values and develop a better midrange, which I’m now beginning to realize is essentially about forcing myself to slow down. I’m still impatient, but I think it’s getting a little better. Also, I just figured out that the graphite seems to lay down better if I go from soft to hard, rather than hard to soft. Seems more intuitive to me now, but I remember someone telling me the opposite once, so I guess I just went with it. Before I would draw with an H or HB pencil first, and then B or B2, now I’ll start with the softest pencil and go harder from there. I’m not sure which way is correct, but they seem to play better like that for me.


    I had this big plan to finish something major in time for the Saturnalia, but when it became clear that that wasn’t going to happen, I decided instead to work on some studies that might double as gifts.

    I started two more, but didn't finish them on schedule. Probably better to spend the extra time on these anyway.
    Here is an interesting passage from La Rochefoucauld that's been keeping me up at night lately. What is it with these guys and the sea anyway?

    And something I started about a year ago around this time, which still isn’t finished, in case there were any doubts about my ability to procrastinate.

    Something I was working on, probably my last drawing like this for a while. I'm not done yet, but I can't really bring myself to finish it right now.
    I guess that's like the mantra of this thread, but here it goes all the same...

    Damn, I'm sorry to hear about your girl troubles. That'll knock the wind out of even the best people. Speaking of knocking the wind out, I'm blown away by these explosive drawings you've posted here! They're beautiful. I can't think of a good way to say this now, but they engage my curiosity immediately. I think I'll show them to my art club at the next meeting.

    So I assume you're in China? How is that going? Post an update! It's been several months!

    Thanks Moai! Bapsi and TA too

    This is like the coolest homecoming ever! I applied for the program from a net cafe while running around China and the ROC with my friend Birchett - still sporting the backpack and just under the deadline, so I didn't think I'd stand a chance. Too wild! The talent on CA is insane, and I feel ridiculously lucky that I'm getting the chance to study with you guys.

    I signed up for the drawing and painting program, since I really wanted to concentrate on the basics (the area where I need the most help I think), but I'm hoping they'll be a chance to hang out and learn from students in the illustration and e.d. programs too, because their stuff has been blowing my mind all over the room - crazy skills and amazing work all around! Hope even more people get to join up in the Fall.

    When you get to town Moai, keep your eye out for this mug...

    We can hit up the local digs and get that education on

    Oh and for anyone who was in the Color Theory class, check this nuts youtube snippet about cephalopods and chromatophores… Masters of the 3 color palette for sure
    http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=pU237UjfYqI#t=135

    And now I think I definitely need to get crackin’ on a new sketchbook. Maybe something with a little less heartache in it this time
