Size:  1,019.3 KBHiya CA'ers, I've been following along with you guys in the shadows for quite sometime but the overwhelming want to learn has lead me to begin my journey and post . Like mostly everyone here I've been drawing since I was a child but once highschool hit I really lagged behind on my art since I was usually thinking negative thoughts. Towards my last year when I was a senior I began to really start practicing and attend lifedrawing classes at my local community college. I'm now 21 and have a strong desire to practice everyday and I'm very excited knowing that I will improve with this community Now enough talk, more scribbles.

    more Ashely Wood inspired stuff:

    meh, this one could have been much better but doubt that I will go back to it:
    Ape's Alla Prima *6.16.15*

    some more painting with acrylics:
    Ape's Alla Prima *6.16.15*

    But I've told myself that I should focus on Black and white and learn values and how shadows fall on form before I dip into color.

    Hey KidApe, great start to the SB! Some really nice stuff here..Liked the Ashley-wood'esque paintings, but go a little crazier with those brush strokes next time, Its all about creating a dynamic feel with the strokes! Really dig your single moleskine image. Keep swamping this sb and welcome to the sb section.

    Now with more Turp!*Updated 6/20/9* !

    Thanks for the advice Brozzi, i think i see what you mean about being crazier with the brush. Now that I look at Wood's work there are brushstrokes ripping right off of the bots and into the background,etc. I will remember that next piece I do.

    more graphite:

    Impressive stuff! Yeah, go to life drawing sessions/classes as much as you can.

    I like that deer looking sketch that you have, in particular.

    Okay, well a couple days ago I picked up two tubes of oilpaint and some turpentine. Here goes my journey:
    First oil study, man I really prefer oils over acrylics alreadyXD
    Ape's Alla Prima *6.16.15*

    second go at it, i think I spent around an hour on each one. I'm pretty happy with this bananna
    Ape's Alla Prima *6.16.15*

    3rd, disapointed with how it turned out but I guess I'll learn that not each one is going to be better than the last. heh.

    and ending off with a different fru..err vegetable? lol. This one got me excited, starting to pay more attention to values and squinting my eyes a lot.

    Blah, I tried painting a potato today but I just had too much difficulty in trying to sculpt the forms with shadows. I kept making the paint go muddy, but did learn somethings in the process.

    I will start cropping my images in my updates, just wanted to show the size of studies compared to those crazy bulldog clips clamped onto my board=D. Till next time, peace!

    Looks like you're busting out the studies. I'm digging the strangely horned deer thing. It'll be sweet when everyone gets their 100 COWs done, sweet to see that you're participating in that contest. Keep posting thew work, you'll get better quick.

    Hey,
    Nice start with the oil paints. Something you may or may not be aware of is that not all white and black oil paints are made equal (kind of goes for other colors as well). I'm not really sure of which two you have there but it looks to me like they are probably pretty opaque and on the cool side of the spectrum. If you wanted to add a little more variation while still keeping to black and white you could play around with using a warm transparent black and or white. They just over all act differently. For me personally I prefer using Titanium White (a cool opaque) and Lamp Black (a warm transparent) most of the time, but still keep around a Flake/Lead white (a warm transparent, toxic) and Ivory black (cool opaque) just for special times of use which does inevitably happen. Anyways, I'm probably rambling at this point. Keep up the studies!
