thanks. I need to study value and color. too bad this term's focus seems to be on line and design basics etc. I'll try to find the time to go to a painting workshop between classes. i want to get better.
Wow Ur going to art school and actually working on art, what a random concept. sorry im really pissed at the art school im at. I think in the last 3 weeks iv been here iv drawn for an hour. maybe ill transfer idk sorry im ranting the studies are looking wonderful. keep posting in your free time
Wow those figures are looking cool! How long were the poses? Great sense of balance and weight! Just pay a little more attention to some of your proportions, although I realize these are gestures and you were taking liberty in adding a little rhythm to the figures.
The sketchbook pages... are just spectacular. I'm serious, you could sell your sketchbooks as works of art, they're so beautiful and creative. The lines of text, crowded drawings and layout of all the pages makes every spread so appealing.
one of my big fears is to graduate from this school as just another cookie cutter designer.
making the extra effort to "come original" this term, as 311 so concisely put it.
I'm trying to do that and make sure my figures don't get too stiff and lifeless.
anywho. some pages from my head drawing class, a couple gestures from week one, and a ..rey bustos pelvis from my monday class. :V
[sorry for the picture quality downgrade. had to give morgan's D80 back. x: so phonecam today.]
oh and thanks for the support, guys. xD
kind of snuck up on me while i was posting.
I'll be sure to pay closer attention to my proportions. there's exaggerating, and there's going overboard, and i gotta make sure i don't do the latter. D:
Love your sketches ! Those figures look great, you keep at those and I don't think you're gonna have to worry much about being cookie cutter. Which school are you going to? Art center (just running with the Pasadena thing)?
I've really enjoyed looking through here; your work has an artsyness to it that a lot of the sbs around seem to here lack. You can tell you're having fun, and it gives your work a lot of appeal. Also, gr8 figure drawings. 5*s
small ridiculous gesture post.
my drawing/compositiong teacher's way of teaching's really really stiff. he didn't even cover gesture. just lifeless robot layins. so every week after this class i'm going to the workshop for a few hours to go crazy with gestures and swoopy awesomeness[okay. not awesomeness. not yet.]
i'll post with more later. gotta homework the fuck out of analytical fig tonight.
Sidharth Chaturvedi: you're right. i'm going to art center. D:
jcpahl, cdejong, OmertA: thanks!
rossipoo: i've only seen one short guy and he looked really scrappy. D:
yeah. there are a lot of white girls here, but none of them are really cute. haha Attachment 782479
