    hey drunken it is nice to see you get motivation in yourself by starting a sketchbook. well first of all the still lifes are going to be hard and there is no short cut on how to get better at drawing. first tip i can give you to start out with is light contour lines, no matter if they come out ugly or really good, its the shading inside that matters. once youve got that mastered the contrast only comes harder. although i think you got the hang of it already, just keep practicing everyday no matter if you dont feel like it, its the only way to get better at anything. also keep posting ill keep checking in every now and then to see how your progressing. hope this helps

    Thanks lost, I'll keep that in mind next time I try tackling still life... or whatever my subject may be. Yeah, I definitely need to get my ass to draw every day because I'm not really motivated nowadays. But thanks for the tip and encouragements!

    Here's the last round of stuff for now. I get a laugh out of the folks on the second one because it's supposed to be a dad playing with his kid (that's what the picture was anyway) but he looks far more sinister and scheming than he was supposed to.

    The hand studies were something I decided to start doing while I was waiting for the prof to come in and start lecture. Well.... before and during lecture.

    Hehe, yeah, I'll be trying that contour line thing for whatever I'm drawing next. It's not that I ignored your advice here, it's just that these actually come from any time from last year to ... a few weeks back,so they're kinda old. Thanks for swinging by.

    and doodling on your notes is perfectly legitimate if it helps you stay awake in class! even if you're not necessarily paying attention, haha

    Nice to see your back with the sketchbook, good studies.

    The hands practice in the school notes are nice, I made a bunch of doodles in math notebooks and the back exercise sheets, specially from the pretty girls that sat in front of me one should practice whenever and wherever right? .

    Keep it up, and remember to test what you study as you go, have fun with it.

    I haven't been drawing jack beans lately. Forgive me my CA brethren.

    Well, I have another sketchbook to upload, but rather than do the whole damned thing, I'll just post a few pieces... and marvel at what little progress has been made. Well, time to draw some more.

    Most of the nicer looking figures/skulls/what not are from Peck's book.

    The girls down at the end were done because I realized I couldn't do subtler shades and flat images worth diddly poop and figured I should try practicing some pencil control

    Found out there was an art school offering a full ride scholarship, I called up and tried applying for the opportunity. They wanted me to bring in a portfolio to assess my current skills and needs. I freaked. I don't have a portfolio, just a loose arrangement of sketches and studies. Anyhow, since I was going for the 3D program, I figured I would scrap together what small pieces of 3D I had. They sucked. And so figuring I'd try something more up to date, I drew some bad concept art and modeled the damn thing in a day and a half. The result sucked too. It wasn't meant to be the best model, nor was it supposed to be textured. I was going to try skinning and rigging it for animation. That.... didn't quite happen. Well here it is:

    Probably the best I've done in a while was this piece (I've since lost the file and any good renders of it)

    Thanks Malpanka! Shading's still my bane though, gotta work on that.

    While I'm staying up at my cousin's place in San Jose, I figured I should try getting more sketch practicing in. I've been going to coffee society for the past two nights and trying to sketch some folk there. Here are some snippits of the better pieces. I'll scan the crappier pieces and toss em' up later... maybe.

    Hiya drunken

    Nice to see your back on the horse, pretty nice badge of studies. I like the coffee shop sketches, thats a good idea for a practice, never been very successful myself at that sorta thing, i keep getting weird looks and people walking away, is actually trickier than one might think :/.

    Cool model, the design is nice, you should post some more imagative stuff.
    See ya around.
