    You're good at only drawing the outlines, I find that the hardest way to draw live figures. Your drawn shading could use help but the painting is beautiful. It would be nice if your figures had the same roundness the teapot has, and the same sense of being planted firmly on the ground. Getting into details with the figures can sometimes distract from the overall shape. Like on that woman's shirt, the wrinkles look unnatural because they're not following the form enough.

    Thanks for the useful critique Linzoy. We have been mainly consentrating on outlines on our figuredrawing sessions - I guess that's because some people are having so much trouble with them - so it's hard to get in practice for shading. It can be sooo frustrating to just be doing a single outline for 2,5 hours .

    Here's something new from my sketchbook, a portrait I did of mom while she agreed to pose for me (in other words stay relatively still while watching television). Unfortunately the tv distracted me way too much, so nothing spectacular.

    Here I did a character sketch for our new rpg campaing, I'm excited since I've wanted to try playing for a long time, but somehow never really managed. My dear friend already kindly translated the character profile to simple terms:

    She's good looking, can't see for shit, can't remember who she spend the previous night with and can dualwield, no wonder everyone likes her.

    I'm not really that happy with it, but I'm so goddamn lazy it's a miracle I even half finish something that isn't shcoolwork, so I'm trying to work my way up from that.

    A selfportrait assigment for school, It was looking really promising at the start, so now that it's gone all wrong I'm just annoyed at it.

    Some examples of technical drawings from school. I wish all our courses were as fun.

    Seems I'm as bad with updating as I feared.

    Holidays are over and I'm back in school. I'm starting to get the hang of oil paints I think. And I bought myself a new brush a few days ago I already love to death, it's so big and springly!

    Some hands I drew when I figured I just suck at them too bad. I have a problem finishing everything I start properly as you can probably see. This reminds me I should draw some more. I got the book of hundred hands just now, so I'll probably copy some good looking stuff from there when I get around to it.

    I'll Post some anatomy copies I try to do regularly next time, this updating thing takes so much time.

    Managed to finally take a photo with minimum glare. I should get three more paintings home next week, if I manage to carry them

    Homework I started working on today, since it's a "holiday". Some nasty glares on the picture.

    Thanks The Original [E] .

    Now I'm not sure if this is interesting at all, but I thought I'd record my process through the painting alltogether, since I already started and don't really have the means for that when I'm at school. I've worked two more days at this one now, and it's taking me too long. Today was going horribly anyway, so I called it quits early.

    This is somewhere during day 2, working my way through the fabrics.
    Attachment 308853

    Day 3 starting out, must have spend half an hour trying to mix a good color for the lower right. Also did a reddish wash for the darker background. At the end of the second day I couldn't see *anything* because of the glares, and at this point I can see that really screwed the left fabric I was working on at the time.

    Did the chair, some fabric and the hat.
    Attachment 308855

    Redid the apples. I'm hoping I'm far enough that I have time to finish the whole thing the next weekend and let it dry so I can carry it to school.

    Just a quick update of the old paintings I finally dragged home, and the newest development on my homework, which I turned in today. Hopefully I can manage to snap a few pictures of the ink croquis we did today as well later.

    I hate how this one is just plain not finished, but when time is up, it's up.

    Just a quick update, a day's worth of work on my next critique, working on finishing faster than the last one. Tomorrow starting almost portraiture (selfportrait for 4 weeks), so excited!

    Wow, did I really not comment here already?

    You have some really good stuff here! The last post is really good. Your still lifes and figure drawings are great. The chair still life in post number 7 has a sense of 3D, but the back of the chair is a little flat. Compared to your still lifes, the material self portrait is a bit boring. So more studies for you!

    Wow I'm bad at updating.

    Paintings from our selfportrait-period. I had been itching to try portraits, and then all we get to paint is selfportraits, bah. First one sucks pretty bad, but it shows the progress nicely.

    VERY good self portraits!

    And of the figure studies, the sitting one is the best.

    Keep updating!
