    WHAT? you are going to ACCD and you have enough time to keep this thread updated? well... i guess it is only 1st week...

    glad you made it! welcome to the big black box!

    cynical 8th termer side note: ACCD may seem all peachy to you right now, but by 8th wk you will be incredibly dissapointed with the school- just be ready for the sugar low, that's all.

    if you are very interested in entertainment design, make sure you get to know Fred Fehlau (FND dept.chair) and swing by the ent.studio sometime to say hi.

    master copies!

    Amphex: The rest of the days is for homework. Gotta keep busy...

    Endregan: Go ahead! (just use em for personal use of course...deal?)

    jlo: Wow! Thanks for checking out my thread. Ive seen your stuff on ass pat, and I must say I'm impressed. Especially by the baghdad project you guys worked on at school. I always stare at it when I pass by.

    I am definetely interested in entertainment design. I'll try and find out where I can find that guy you mentioned. Oh.... where is the entertainment studio, I didn't know there was one? When can I find you there?
    I'm an accd noob:p Btw, why do you say I will be dissapointed by the 8th week?

    I just downloaded over 300 leyendecker pics.
    If you dont know who he is go over to the art history section and check out josh's threads.
    Josh, your threads are always great. We need more!

    Hey Iwasink, I also copied those Leonardo heads some time ago - I think he was a sharp observer and had lots of humour. And I want to thank you for posting your notes - this is a great thing for me to learn from. Hope that you won't become too busy in the future to continue this. Enjoy yourself and keep up your motivation, you're a great source of inspiration.

    i.was.ink that is good work! i like how you cross hatched to get different values on the figures. (is values the right word?) you seem to make your outlines very dark on all these, is it a style thing or is that how they really look? great work all around.

    figure drawings

    Gasmask: will do sir. Where's your life drawings btw? You said you'd show me yours...

    Jester: Glad I can help!

    J.Mac: Value is the correct work. I did outline them a bit more to stylize them, but no too much.

    endregan: This is going to help me out a ton. I'm glad you're preparing.

    Today was a good day in my fig. drawing class. The model was cool, first time I draw him too. I was talking with him, and he was telling me things he liked in my work, and he ended up giving me his business card, which was really nice of him. The guy had modeled for Kevin, and Steve Houston.... I drooled when I heard that...:eek:

    But anyways, here's some 5 min. layins. The teacher wanted us to concentrate on sturucture and gesture. Cuz if you don't have any of the two, your drawing will suffer.

    (Some of the thinner and fine lines get lost, but I hope you get the picture)




    I forgot to add the chair he was using to balance himself. It looks like he's dancing without it:p












    There you go! I'll post something else tomorrow.

    i.was.ink great figures, you gave the forms weight. they really look good. what size paper did you use 18 x 24, and what size are your figures about? also do you want a critique on any of your postings or is that not needed? one last thing, i like how you show your stages in blocking the head in, that is great! Can't wait for more.

    Hey bro....this is fantastic! This is really good for me to see because I will be getting a bit different type of education being at the atelier so this will help me round things out while attending there...I will post all the techniques from the studio in my thread as well as soon as I get started so I can hopefully contribute some stuff that will help you as well. You have a lot of talent already iwasink...you will go far...keep it up! I would like to see a high res of those perspective notes...I am curious.

    Hey guys! Sorry for the delayed response, but I've been busy lately with school and all. I'm at school right now, and I'll be updating it later today with my perspective notes(full res), 5 min. gestures, and possibly with my head drawing notes.

    For my pespective class yesterday we learned about scale, and we did an in class project where we drew a couple of things inside a room, like a door, a hole in the floor, and some steps that lead up to the door. The catch is that they have to be in perspective(ov course). He taught us how to do it, earlier in the day through his lecture, but when you're drawing it, it gets kinda tough at times. For example when drawing the door, it was 3 ft. from the wall, and thats 3 ft. in perspective. Which is damn hard to do, if you dont know how. So we finally finished that drawing, and had to turn it in, so I don't get to post it. When I get it back I'll post that fatty!

    so for hw we have to draw our room, based on the floor plan of the room, in perspective. He showed us some samples, and its not too hard. So I'll post that when I'm finished. Meanwhile, I gotta keep going with the head drawings( todays lecture was based on the planes of the head, which isn't as easy as it may sound, but it is extremly helpful:cool: ), and the master copies.

    Thanks again for checking the thread, and I'll talk to ya guys later.

    Hello once again. Ca wasn't working for me yesterday, so I didn't update.

    Here's my perspective notes at full res:http://iwasink.visiblesurface.com/Ar...ctive%20Notes/

    The only bad thing is that my scanner won't pick up the little details, so some lines don't show up. Sorry.

    Here are some 5 min. layins that I did for my fig. drawing class. The one on the left is is pencil, and the other two are black prismacolor.




    I'll update with some more soon.

    Oskar

    good work, i like the your drawings of the figures they are pretty well mapped out. the top left woman looks a little off, i htink it is her shoulders and her neck. but hey it is 5 minute sketches,but hey they are way better than i could do in that amout of time i actually really like the second figure, it is the contrast i think. you got the gestures down pretty good on these.

    when you do gestures how do you do them? i know you get the main movement and and center of gravity down first, but what do you do for the arms, legs and feet. just curious i like to see how you do it? :p

    great notes. um hmm well that is for me. good luck with your classes and update when you can i think we would understand you are busy. well i am off to go draw a still life and paint.

    I.was.ink you rock :rock:

    Thanks for your comments!

    J.Mac: I do get the pose down with the main movement, but I usually start off with the shape of the rib cage/torso, or if the model is looking directly in my pov I draw their eyes, cuz thats the focal point. If I dont have enough time to do that, I simply always start off with the torso, hips, shoulders, head, and then limbs. I don't worry about specifics. I go from general to specific. I'll post some more fig. drawings on monday.

    Amhpex: If you go home, do your hw, and dont screw around you get some time to hand out, but not much.

    Endregan: Thanks, yeah I do practice a lot.

    Thanks cityworker and chao!

    Here's an update of master copies andhead drawing notes.

    I copied N.C Wyeth's work for these. 25 min. on the first 3, 45 min. for the last one.






    I think this is my mastercopy.
    At the other end of that rope he's pulling a hostage with him. Wyeth is soooooo good!



    Here's the head notes. He introduce planes of the head to us, and we have to do 40 drawings using this method in our sketchbook.
    page 5

    page 6

    cya!

    heh heh- funny you should call it the "ass pat" forum, because it's actually the "no ass-pat" forum... our specialty is throwing out the feel-good and getting straight to the constructive criticism. most of the people on there are ACCD students/alum and we try to crit as if we were in class. for anyone else who's interested, it's forum.studio222.net

    the entertainment studio is room 202g (the prototype space). i would hold off visiting until 5th or 6th wk (no art is up right now) and wouldn't visit us after 9th (too busy). also warning: we're kinda hostile to unknown visitors so make sure you say who you're looking for.

    Fred Fehlau (patron god of entertainment) is located in the DCO (dept.chair's office). he never smiles and is very curt but that's why he is so efficient. he is responsible for the ent.studio and most of the ent. classes at school. get to know him.

    and as for 8th wk, well, it's someone everyone goes through, so i'll just let you find out.

    That last MC is sooo good, your really kicking ass in ACCD. The more Im seeing and hearing about it, the more I think I should try to pick up my work and aim for there.
    Keep rocking!

    Thanks for this thread man, nice drawings so far, and congrats for achieving your goal of getting into Art Center! I've been really keen for some insight as to their teaching methods, and your posts have been most helpful and inspiring. Wyeth is a cool choice for doing studies from, keep on keepin on!
