    Wow love your stuff, especially the vector work.
    The giraffe piece is still kind of hard to read after you tweaked it. It's really cute once I figured out what was going on, but it took me a minute. Maybe the giraffes in color against the b/w background? Or something else that makes it easier to read.
    "This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy." -Douglas Adams

    Aha! I am at SCAD. You figured it from me being in Savannah... or something? Oooh! Are you at SCAD too? That'd be so coooool~

    And, MyOrangeHat, for that project I could only use black, white and two tones of gray. We'll do them in color soon though. I'll be starting on the final today Well...maybe >.>

    Alright! for that robot thing, I thought to do a family of robots! They'd all incorporate into the logo like the first one! That's the kid.

    Also, I did a.... mad scientist time travelling villain who was framed for a crime she didn't commit but still remains quite fashion conscious... lol Well, all the circles are clocks... I'm just too gestural for it to read right x.x

    Theeeeere we go. Technical difficulties

    Er... I actually worked on it a little... 'cos I'm pretty sure it was unreadable. Just compare it with the sketch above lol See if you can figure out where I get the actual forms from

    Some nice styles going on here! A couple pictures that really caught my eye were the ghost story illo in charcoal, some intense mood there, and the initial sketch for newest one (I liked the looseness and expression on that one though the final rendering looks good too and certainly helps to read what's up with the arms). Keep them coming and draw some more hands too!

    Ok! Sketches

    Thanks smuli! Er, yeah... my studies are all over the place lol but that's just how I draw 'em. I didn't get to do many hands, really... and I didn't mean for them to come out that way... but it's cool-lookin'! I think so, anyway. I'll do more later Also, some of the gestures are... me... and that made me feel kinda weird. And kinda awkward. Might be why I got a tummy ache halfway through lol

    And there's doodle ideas for turning my x-ray into art! Robots! Of course

    Mn... Very hungry! Also a bit sleepy... Anyway, these are the practice samples of this technique we're learning in class. Pretty much, you slather paint, then slather texture, then... slather a transparent color, do an underpainting, more slathering of transparency, and finally the real painting! I painted like twice before, though... so... yeah. That's what it is!

    Wellp, you've got some really skinny cartoon peoples. And they're all awesome-looking. ^^ Make some fat ones too, just for fun. Push your comfort zones! Get out of them and try new things. I agree with Shardana, some really nice gestures here. Very fluid! I'm envious. Keep at it, draw! Do iiiit.

    Like the rest of the guys, I really dig your style and your gestures. However, how about some anatomy studies? Try to get some of your anatomy studies as real as you see them. I think that would try to push you out of your comfort zone of cartoon/stylized drawings.

    Also, I would like to see some environments or color studies. With your style of drawing I think THOSE would be pretty pimp!

    Nice stuff! I think on some your colored stuff it's a little irritating that you use some black outlines (on te legs for example on the modle) but skip the outlining on other parts. I'd actually say ditch the outline altogether. You could go more saturated and dark on the shadows on the faces too.

    Ah, yes. I got it right before I submitted it. Even though I'm done with it for class, I'd still like to know what I should change about the hammer I might go back later and it'd help me with other things too!

    I think what Kidult was trying to say was that we all already commented on each others work and where missing you.
    At least I was wondering if you got the memo. ;P

    that last design is a bit busy. Thors shirt and fur coat are similar in value and it makes the figure a little hard to read.

    I think what would help the Thor design is making the actual runes on the hammer a darker shade to make the rest of it stand out.

    Now lets see some non homework stuff!

    UGH. Another almost all-nighter. It's almost 'cos if I do full all-nighters I get very sick... so I'm only kinda sick. Also, I put my hair up in cute pigtails to preserve my sanity Double also, I met psychotime just a little bit ago and it was funny~ and weird. And very brief But funny~

    I knew thor had some issues with uh... readability... but I was too tired to deal. Might do later, also might make the yellow on the t-shirt/hat a little warmer, and perhaps yellow beard too? My friends want me to do something with that design and get them an actual shirt... but eh... it's not refined enough.

    First one is a pie... blueberries... didn't have time to research them >< Anyway, it'll read better when I color it =.= It is for class... which is why there's crazy splotches everywhere. Teacher made us do it.


    By the way... what does the first S in SSG stand for? I keep forgetting/thinking it's super.

    Oh... Those gestures look fine!
    Go, Darlene, look *nudge*. That's what I was talking about considering construction of a mannequin.

    I think you could do some studies of noses. They are not looking as good as the rest of the face.

    I'm looking, I'm looking! But I don't really see anything that could help me. When you say "Construction of a mannequin", I get confused. You mean different parts? o_O

    ANYWAY.. These are awesome sketchies! And I do love the gestures, they show motion.. I don't know HOW, but I do know that they do, and I like them! More more more!!!! Keep it up, keep it up! Push, push, push.

    Oh, and stands for: Sketchbook support group!

    Yesterday was super busy and super disappointing =.= so this... is what I've got.

    And don't lie psycho, you know you enjoyed it

    I'll start more pen and ink stuff today probably... but it's just interesting thinking about how I hate using outlines in Illustrator but I really like them with traditional media. Well... Yeah.

    Oooh! I found something really good! I was searching for mannequin examples to help out with gestures... 'cos I was too lazy to draw one >.>; However! My laziness paid off!

    Blogger blogger: http://analyticalfiguresp08.blogspot...1_archive.html

    This one in particular is what I'd like you guys to look at. It shows the upper body mass, the tummy bit that can bend and twist, and the hips. When I draw I leave my tummy as just the line of the "spine" but as long as you have the torso separated into those 3 parts you'll get a better understanding about how the body moves Yay! I'll study it a bit too...

    PUPPPYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!! EEEEEEEEE!!! SO CUUUTE. D ... I want it


    .. Err..mmm..ogkgk. Okay, done drooling. You've just drawn EXPERT NOSES. I love those noses! They are the noses that I love. Look at the nostril in that one! And the bridge of that nose is DEEEEE-VINE!! Let us embrace, you, and I, mr. nose.. We will dance into the sunset with your wonderfully drawn symmetry, or lack thereof, depending on the nose! ...

    ahem.. anyway! I'm feeling a bit silly. It might be the ice cream :3 But in any case, I'm SO HAPPY that you've decided to UPDATE .. And.. I love what you've been doing! Pressing to improve! hehe, the backup fairy. Funny. Though, I don't know whyyy! Anyway.. Keep it up! Keep at it! You're great!
