    Nice texture practice! Although you might watch out for that animal anatomy. The head seems strange.

    Keep updating!

    Hi Shmaba,

    Great work in here. I love what you've done with the still lifes in the beginning of your sketchbook. Your last post, of the textured horse, has an affecting and mysterious quality to it. I feel like I can smell ancient history. I'd like to see this one explored more. Keep it up.

    Your life drawings are the strongest, I would suggest you do more of those. The environments are a good start, but I would suggest a little more contrast in value in that first one.

    Keep it up!

    Hey, sorry guys. I had finals for the past two weeks. Now that I'm graduated from high school I'll try getting my current sketchbook filled before I head off to Ringling for college.

    Going to Ringling, huh? That's a great opportunity for you! Congrats! As far as the sketches go - maybe tighten them up a bit. Give consideration to the marks you make on the page. Sometimes it looks a little hairy. I really like the bug-dude! Best of luck!

    Congratulations on Ringling!

    Like MarkWinters said, be bold about your mark making - do less searching and put down lines as confidently as you can. I'm digging the skeleton king in your second image.

    Keep postin'!

    Hi man, your work is awesome, very promesing.
    If you want to get good as sooner as possible, stick to the figure, decompose it in simple forms, and try to draw more confident, with straight lines.
    Everything looks great, but remember that painting is way more easier when you can draw as a master.

    You have great promise, so all you need to do is work up a library of reference and keep working hard. Draw and paint as much as you can and do not give in when you lose inspiration.

    Sorry guys, this sketchbook has been kinda put on hold because I can't get any sketches on the computer. So all you'll see from me in awhile is digital paintings.

    Fun image! Some comments for ya:

    Try to keep elements off the edge of the painting. For instance the car is sort of resting on the border. Get the car up there on the page more. Make it look more precariously placed on the bridge to add some tension.

    Grab some reference for the sky, road, rocks and car. I think having better informed elements could really help sell this painting.

    Since all we get are digis make sure to keep 'em coming dude! Best of luck!

    Trojan man in space should be a finished illustration.

    Sorry about not replying for so long.

    I really like the breakdown of your dog's head. It's good to see you thinking about simplifying complex structures into basic forms; that will go a long way to help you construct things out of your imagination.

    Keep it up, and update when you can.

    Hey, long time no see.
    I love the studies in the last post. Especially the dog!

    Yeah dogs tend to move around much so they can be quite tricky to draw. Thats why I always draw mine when he is asleep.

    WOW, didn't mean to kill my sketchbook like that. I'm back and I'll try updating this as often as possible, I've already got a lot of college work that I might or might not get around to posting but here's some homework for Contextual Figure that I just finished

    We had to take 4 gestures we made and re-draw them, then draw the same pose from a different angle without reference. I labeled them so you know which is what. (sorry for the lousy photo-chopping)

    Lookie lookie! The prodigal son has returned! Haha Interesting assignment. I may try that sometime! I think you did a great job with the new views. I probably wouldn't have been able to call which is which (original or new).

    Try and focus on your line quality. Don't be afraid to erase out a lot of the sketchy lines and replace them with a single deft stroke. When shading you seem to be indicating where the shadows are as opposed to actually rendering the shadow areas. There's a difference. Start RENDERING the shadows and avoid simply indicating.

    You're doing good work dude! Best of luck in school and KEEP POSTING! Haha

    I have risen from the grave yet again, and I bring pictures! Here are some random sketches and studies I've done. It's really hard to update this between work and play, but I'm going to keep trying.

    hey hey! long time no see hows ringling for you?

    one crit mainly from me: the forehead (particularly brow bone region) on your greyscale paint portrait in the last post seems too protrudent, like hes got a lump or smthg... also on your first sketch, that neck throws proportion of the character off a little!

    looking forward to seeing more of your schoolwork, seems to me like its doing you lotsa good ^^

    Short update this time. I haven't gotten much work onto my computer, but hope to do so soon.

    petitemistress - Hey! It's all right here. Ringling definitely gets you working as much as possible, kinda exhausting but it's still all good.

    an update. Really hard finding time to be active on CA, but that's only because i'm doing a lot of work. Averaging around 4 hours of sleep each night with my homework and social life conflicting, I hope it's not hurting my artwork.
