    To get started: these are an assortment of things from the last year. No particular order. Feel free to ask questions about any of them. All are from a reference of some kind. Thoughts/critiques appreciated.

    (edit: Sorry for the shoddy scan quality. I got it figured out by page two or so. If ever I'm feelin' really ambitious, I'll rescan and repost)

    Hey there sedig, looking good.
    I just think you should try to lower the contrast a little on the scanning, so we could se better the nuances of your rendering.
    Nice rendering on the wooden doll too!

    Keep it up man!

    The only thing that stands out to me is your line quality, most of this seems scratchy and a little difficult to read. Not unreadable, but like reading at dusk. Other than that I love your rendering.

    i like it alot but i agree that you need to tone down your scanning... my fav. would have to be the side portrait (perhaps a self portrait?) keep it up and post more !

    I turned down the contrast on the images from the last post. Hopefully they will read a little bit better now. Getting these images to show correctly might be an adventure for a while. Anyone have tips on how to get them to show more clearly? Right now I have to scan and then resize in ms paint. That's probably the problem.

    Carbono- Thanks. I did lower the contrast on the previous drawings and the next batch. Hopefully I can indeed keep it up.

    Retronym- Though I'm sure my line quality needs work, I think the scratchiness is a result of poor scanning. Maybe this next set will be better. We'll see.

    Rockhart- that profile portrait is actually of a friend. I got decent likeness, so I am happy with it for the most part. It was initially sketched in felt tip pen, and then I went over with marker.


    These are further selections from the previous year's work. I'm trying to set up a starting point. Hopefully by the end of this week my posting will be caught up with my drawing, i.e. I will be posting what I draw on any given day.

    where are you in illinois?

    i grew up in aurora and went to school down at urbana-champaign

    i agree with the other post. drop the brightness and increase the contrast on your scans s o they show up better.

    You dropped your gauntlet in my sketchbook, and i thought i'd bring it back.

    Careful where you throw 'em, because damn they're tempting to pick up. Perhaps we can do some Guggemmaneuver vs. Illinois full-color moleskine in a week challenge? i'm willing to bet mine will be better and more expressive. let's try and set this party up for the spring when things are blossomming and the putrifying dollops of blood slowly making their way toward the lazy and polluted mississippi river will be less obvious...

    also, with my chronic allergies i can work some snot into the page! yay!

    I think I've got scanning figured out. The images seem to read better, so that should be improvement, if nothing else. I may rescan the previous images this weekend, or sooner if I feel particularly ambitious.

    Andrew- I'm happy to be back. The scans will be caught up shortly, I think. Nesti was probably going overboard. ::::: The first semester was pretty good, I think. I have a design class that meets for four hours, twice a week. Lots o' drawing. We focused on technical drawing for a while, then got on to the good stuff. We had two really big projects (mixed in with infinite, time consuming, yet still excellent smaller ones). The first was a progressively zoomed view of a building: two drawings and a model. The final project was called "walking into the perspective" It was a great project. We had to insert a circus into a one point perspective street scape. Included a rendered site plan, 26x30 drawing, and a basswood sectional model. If you want more details, pm me.

    ccsears- I'm from a little town called Morrison. Northwest, east of the Quad Cities. I think I took care of the scan problem

    guggemmaneuver- Uh oh. You brought the heat. I think I'm gonna pick up your gauntlet. Better? More expressive? We'll see. The results can be nothing but positive. The stress may kill me. I can't wait. We'll set this up once I get settled into a routine here at school. It's on like Donkey Kong.

    Today's offering:
    These are from my current sketchbook, so I'm getting closer to completely current updates. As always, thoughts are appreciated.

    Really nice atmosphere in your life drawings! Especially in the people - they capture so much. The last mannekin's legs are a little off (the far leg) - I know you know this already, but by drawing attention to it, you'll keep that particular situation in mind the next time

    Hey there Sedig! Thanks for you comment on my Sketchbook!

    Great life studies, i really need to start doing these! The amount of art you do is nice too, great practices!
    My only advice would be: The noses, in most of your portraits they are looking too big or too small! Other than that, looking good!
    Keep it up man!

    Sedig, thank for coming to y SB.
    I saw your post in green fire's SB, just so you know, lalovergel is a HE, not a SHE. but it's ok.
    About your post on my sketchbook, yeah, the chiaroscuro and crosshatching diagrams seem to be vary light, but it wasn't something i did by myself, it was a class excercise, and i only had a 4h pencil to work with that day. Nonetheless I will repeat it and show some good darks. Thanks for the advice. As for you work, i can see you have a lot of idea on handling value, even the loose renderings are good at popping out.
    _lalovergel_
    I consider it a challenge before the whole human race, and I ain't gonna lose.
    Welcome!(Sketchbook)
