Hiya 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.
Messing around with Robots:
more Ashely Wood inspired stuff:
meh, this one could have been much better but doubt that I will go back to it:
some more painting with acrylics:
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.
time to leave off on a SP i finished up today:
Thank you very much for taking the time to view this and even more if you comment! Until next time(which will be tomorrow), take care and kAttachment 2124034eep drawing.

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.
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.
welcome bro!..nice start..nice pencils...mmm i like specially the vicious thing u did, also the spider..that makes me ask for more creature design heheh..keep postin'...oh by the way that sp looks cool to..
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.
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!
