    sketchbook of hope

    Well, this is my second posting here on CA with a try at a sketchbook. Hopefully I go farther with this one. I've started a website and I've been trying my best to improve. Please, C&C is welcome.

    I know it's not much, but I plan to do more updating, daily at best. The pictures are a little distorted because I took the pictures with a cheap digital camera, I apologize in advance.

    Anymale- Thank you anymale for the thought, actually, your right, he is holding the weapon in a strange way.

    Started on this piece last night, anything you see:

    My only suggestion would be to work the pencils and lines of the drawings further, before bringing them into the computer for painting.

    Work on your figure as well. www.saveloomis.org Check out "Figure Drawing for All It's Worth"

    I hope you make good on your aspirations to update this thread regularly.

    im still at it

    Sorry haven't posted in a while. No scanner, so I'm working a lot digital now. I want to do a single self portrait every day. So far I'm into the 5th day.

    Here are the results, and please tell me what you think would help me improve my skills.

    droppings

    Sorry its been so long, very busy. Moved into my first ever apartment with my gf! Should be fun, and will give me a chance to work a lot harder on my abilities. Well, I also got a new camera so I can take pictures of what I'm doing. Right now I'm taking 4 art classes, visual foundations I and II, advanced figure drawing, and intermediate painting. It keeps me going, but please tell me what you feel will help me improve. I'll be dropping more off tonight, sorry again for the long wait. I love this place, I feel like improvement screams from it, so thank you for letting me join.

    We have to create a 3-d mask so I made a few sketches to see what I want to bust out.

    None of the pictures are loading for me.
    Hmm, I don't think Geocities like hotlinking. Oh well. Guess I'll check back later.
