    Amazing Action ApeThanks! I actually tried a few blind contours today. Haven't done any since college. Good fun indeed!

    Ok so the first batch of scraps is from last week. Did stuff from The Human Machine, posemaniacs, and a few photos. The second page is some scribble from physical therapy today. So drew the chick from a magazine while waiting, and my hand while covered with heat and ice packs. I'm really struggling to break the bad line habits.

    Here's my scribble for IDW#75 Dream Splicer. I'm not submitting it though. I feel extra awkward with photoshop lately possibly because I've been avoiding it like the plague. I'm pretty terrified of color in general unless I'm oil painting.

    hey hadesdream,
    nice to see that your doing some studies, and the xbox paintings are good, but maybe not good for the xbox lol. oh well, anyways so far your getting an ideal outline of the human anatomy, i would suggest keeping everything to a simple lines than trying to retrace each line. i hoope that helps u in a way. anyways, i like the cars that youve posted, god loves them cars. lol best of luck

    I love how every cake you do is better than the last—you're getting very good at making them quickly... I really think the dragon turned out beautifully and I can't wait to see what you do next now that you're working with fondant.

    Jeneni Thank you!
    Kaffinated Ah...it's a classic...and thank you. I've actually played with posemaniacs a bit but I tend not to want the quick sketches to ever see the light of day once I'm done.

    So I've been a bum and haven't updated. Luckily I started figure painting class with Jeneni today. Here's Jeneni's first progress shot. Below is the start of mine. I'm angry with it and am thinking about starting over next week. But I'll decide that then, after I've avoided looking at it for a while. Does feel good to pick up oils after about two years though.

    I definitely don't think you should scrap it... there will be other models and you'll get a chance to start differently and I think it will be a good opportunity to look at your progress by the end. Anyway, I really love the sense of weight you captured, she looks very relaxed like she's leaning into the pose. I really love the skin tone you've got (which I have to say looks even better in person because you can really see the soft subtle pinks and the white looks very beautiful and creamy).

    Don't have analyze-have fun and learn from mistakes! And I'll try to keep it in mind too!

    Jeneni Thanks. It's totally different looking at them on the computer, allows a little more seperation from the work. Hopefully with class tonight I'll completely forget about this piece and see it through fresh eyes next week. If not, I have more canvas...hehe.

    So I submitted a sword design for colosseum-game's contest. I was a little frustrated that I submitted it on the due date and then they extended the contest. I didn't get to smooth out the lines and try to give them weight or lightness as it were. Ah well, still fun to do...I tried to mimick the style of their sword samples.

    Just found out I got honourable mention...yep.

    So I had my first Drawing II class at Fleisher tonight. We're working a little to big for me to scan, and my camera needs a good charge but I want to get those up here to see if I'll make any improvements in 15 weeks.

    For now, here are some sketches I did before class referenced from a ballet book I have. I forgot how small the pictures were when I took it along, practically had my nose on the page trying to see. The one foot is huge...haha definitely got distracted on that last one.

    Just wanted to say that the bottom dancer's kicking foot is really big. Just keep up the studies-- when I first studied torsos, I just found as many photos as I could, and timed myself to see how long it took to draw each one. (The time thing might be irrelevant, but I do suggest focusing on certain parts in addition to drawing the whole body).

    eminkey2003Yea, I noticed the foot was huge but forgot to fix it til after the scan. Thank you.

    katinki Thanks for the interest. I have painting class tomorrow so hopefully there will be an improved update.


    So I just did this quick and dirty Degas study with oil pastel. I have never tried to do anything with oil pastel besides nonsensical scribble so I honestly have no idea how I'm supposed to use them. Heck I don't really know how to work in any color medium that's not paint. Ah...tangent...
