MM Howard's Sketchbook - May Cause Temporary Blindness (Update: March 08,2010)
I was too scared to post on here for a long while. I signed up, I think, three months ago, with tons of sketches to post, (edit) but I was afraid of the type of critique I was going to get. I sucked it up and I'm ready to improve.
Just a little bit about me:
I'm 23 (old enough to drink, yay), want to go to school for art after getting my associates in Broadcasting for a BSA in either Animaton or Game Art Design, and hopefully will be the first out of a family of artists not to give up on it because of other things in life. Mostly self-taught, but took 6 art classes (had to stop due to family problems). That being said...enjoy, comment, and rip my art to shreds so I can get better!
(Note: Wasn't going for a likeness of Jessica Alba or copying every detail of the movie poster on first drawing, but it was fun to do!)

Kaffinate: Thank you! Been holding on to that dream for such a longtime I can't let go of it.

Here's some more sketches, a digital painting of an apple, and some digital sketches. Not completely great, but I'm getting there. My trial for CS3 ran out, so if I post anymore digital work, it'll probably be from GIMP.

I decided that I'm going to try for Ringling and see what happens. Already working on a traditional portfolio (what I'm more comfortable with anyway).
Here is a character portrait from someone on DeviantArt. Her name is Chasity.

Hey MM, I saw you on the Ringling thread and I thought I would check out your sketchbook. Dude, great stuff, my favorite part of your drawing has got to be your strong outlines, you got a great style going on here and it really seems to work.
As for preparing a portfolio for Ringling they really like to see life drawing. I may be wrong but it looks like most of your work is from photographs/ magazines, so if possible try to attend a life drawing session, class, or sketch your family/friends/ pets.
Also if you finished that perspective piece, I think it would make a great addition to your portfolio, it looks awesome.

jimboslutstien Thanks for visiting and taking a look. Yeah, I do copy a lot from photos, whether I copy them exactly or use them as references. I think that's my biggest problem. I used to do portrait drawing using a grid and I think Amy Winehouse was one of the first pieces I did without grid and just using the photograph. Best thing is that before I submit my portfolio is that I'm taking some figure drawing classes at a museum. None of these pieces are being submitted. At the moment I'm working on a couple of still lifes and plan on visiting downtown for perspective pieces.
As for the one life perspective piece, it's actually from my sketchbook while I was hanging out at Dunkin Donuts. Maybe I should visit there again and do a full, finished piece for my portfolio. Thank you again for visiting.
thrilafrommanila Wow, thank you! Hopefully next time you check it out I'll have an actual drawing from life.
