    These are mighty pictures! Can you tell where you drew the charcoal, acrylic paint, and spray paint in the 2nd one? I'm curious. BTW, the first one is incredible!! you did it with just charcoal?

    Sam's Sketchbook updated: 2-29

    The surface I used for the big charcoals was fake flooring pre-rolled. linoleum. You can go to any local home depot and buy them in varying sizes. The back surface is what you put your image on. All I used on the first one was regular chunks of charcoal. The second I used spray paint and acrylic paint as well.

    Here are some more shots of the two.

    Did this Godfather in charcoal. Around 15 hours I think on and off throughout a week. 6X8 feet.

    Another 6X8 ft. piece I did in charcoal, acrylic paint, and spray paint. The child I used as reference and the rest was me. Took a little longer than the Godfather.

    Your doing good. Keep up the life drawing studies to help with those odd places with proportions, such as the feet and hands.

    Thanks cookiedemon your right. The thing is, I usually do those last... So when my instructor says done I freak out and just scribble them in sometimes... I have like 40 more figure sketches Ill need to photograph tomorrow and put up. Thanks for the comments ItalianHorse and Cookie and Rolo. Much appreciated.

    lilnebo - haha i am no way near being a pro, but thanks for the encouragement.

    here is a little something Sam I am.

    a work in progress, layout. i am actually going to cut out everything and leave the man and just a cup to drink.

    my original idea was: like a view of a dude at a card table, with his hands over his face. he is wearing a tux with the tie un-done and looks all haggard and tired and shit, with like a few empty martini glasses next to him ,like hes been gambling all night and lost all his money. i was thinking having him at a blackjack table where you can see him and the table and everyhting else is black, except for a spot light on him and around him and his part of the table

    here is an idea of what i was thinking
    Sam I am.

    any suggestions?

    hey man nice book!
    you obviously got a great talent for drawing, especially from ref
    i would keep hittin those figure studies because it seems it is one of your weaker points, your rendering skills are pretty amazing obviously so i would just work on drawing, line and proportions, just seeing what you can get without rendering because thats the easy part
    keep updating man, this is a real nice book

    nice stuff. really like your ref. stuff (especially those huge charcoal ones) i would put more emphasis on figure studies though because it looks like you need some work on that, it will help improve your non ref. drawings. keep it up.
    To live is to create, to create is to live. Without art and music, I do not know how I would get by in my day to day life.

    Dadushin and thesadpencil thanks for the comments. Throughout highschool I never got to do figure studies until this semester (second semester as a freshman) in college. My figure drawing class is the hardest art class I have done. I am definitely learning as I try to draw from real life each day.

    I just got back from class and we were focusing on the head.
    Each of these were done in 45 minutes with a model.

    This was done on some good quality paper.
    Sam I am.

    This was done on newsprint... it was so hard.
    Sam I am.


    And here is a fun sketch I did. The girl holding up her sweater was drawn from another member who I forgot drawing. I thought It was fun to add an "apple" theme to it because I had to draw a still life with some fruit.

    You did all of those digital sketch images in 15 min? you mean 15 each correct? haha

    The referenced stuff is fantastic, it must have been so fun to make such large studies! I hope to do that myself one day. Some of the digitals from reference, particularily earlier on were great, but I feel that some of the knowledge isnt being carried over to your imagination work (the first image in #12 has very noticable proportional problems) - just keep on practicing! Oh the facebook ap. one was very neat I must say!

    Looking good sir! Practice is the key. Have you studied Loomis or Bridgman books before? They have helped me a ton in things that I could not learn on my own.

    Hey dude! Thanks for commenting on my sb! This is jammed packed with lot of cool stuff. I didn't think you had this much. Keep going to the live drawing session and read up on Vilppu to see how he works in live drawing. There are a few demos of his at his website. http://www.vilppustudio.com/

    The digital studies are the bomb. I need to do more myself. I like that you take references randomly that you enjoy and make good finished art out of them. You explore mediums too, I think it just makes you more of a well rounded artist that way.

    The apple still life, Simpson, and the eye digital study are all favs of mine.

    Continue your journey!

    Matsign I appreciate the post. I will check out those demos sometime. I took a glance and they seem kind of expensive but I will check it out.

    Your right about taking random photos that please me. I tend to do that sometimes haha.
