Hello everyone here's my first post! i'm new here...well not really...ha..been roaming around the forums for awhile now but haven't had the guts to start a sketchbook..i'm currently 17 and still am working on a portfolio to submit by the end of JAN or FEB to LCAD and ACCD...even though i really don't know where to go... i applied to SJSU animation/illustration program and will probably go there due to financial issues...

Reason: added descript
Neat stuff! I'm not much of a critique-r or anything, so I can't really help you there.. but I know what you mean about the guts thing. It took me a couple months to even join the forums, I was so intimidated!
Your style is cool, it reminds me of graffiti. And I really like the 3rd one, is that marker?
Haha, yeah to be honest the class is a little lame! Nobody in it really cares about art or knows what they're doing. Plus, my teacher is going through menopause so she can only help me out between hot flashes. :-p
Great bold and unhindered experiments in design and style. I like the graphic panda. That you are having fun shows through and that's attractive in your work.
Your traditional studies are quite good. T'will be interesting to see how your ideas combine with your growing traditional experience.
Keep it up.
hey man, thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. you have some awsum work! i also have the problem with learning to drive, just dont have time lol i want to see some more human anatomy and self portaits! KEEP IT UP!
AztcFireFlower: Thankyou!! i love your work! i want to study at an atelier someday!
Glory666: Thanks man! yes yes! i have to do that driver's ed this weekend! haha... i will post some of my human anatomy studies and do more self portraits! lots TO DOO!!!
VenustusVis: Thankyou!! ahh i learned so much from that drapery study! basically learned how light works and it's principles. still i'm far from mastering it! UGH. COLOR..is my weakness.. at times i tend to use all the colors of the rainbow...lol..i need to set myself to use a limited palette well...start off with the black , white and the greys or something!
finally got these uploaded
These figure drawings were done this year at AAU's pre-college saturday classes. UGH.. too bad my class was combined with the drawing and composition class and there was some kid that was uncomfortable with the nude models that it changed into a clothed figure drawing class. BLEH! oh well
the only thing i didn't take advantage was the short poses, and trying to understand the torso, which i'm lacking on. all i really did was try to render the form, especially the faces..ugh. stupid me!
