    added some color to my CHOW piece. I really want to do some more studies like i did a couple pages ago, but Clinicals are starting and it's difficult to squeeze in time. I know, excuses, excuses. I'm going to be so excited when Winter break comes, I'll have two weeks of freedom!

    improvement and dedication yeah!
    keep it up, you work hard, always participating to the CHOW, it will pay

    maybe try to improve your line movement/quality by doing fast live drawing pose. It could give more energy to your sketches

    Thank you for the advice! I think I'll pick up the habit of going to the park or the library or something and do some live drawings. I think that's what you were saying anyway...

    Here's a sketch I did little by little at school. I need to find reference for him. It's Spike, the Dragon Dentist over at CHOW. Oh, and he will have pants and boots, I was sketching things at school little by little when I could so I just never got that far.


    I'm going to throw this one out and start again I believe.

    Starting to get frustrated. I'm going to try to step back for a little while and then come back and see if this is salvageable.

    MJ,

    I had noticed that your CHOW entries have improved with each passing week and after seeing your sketchbook, I can see why your work has become stronger. I wish that I had your work ethic.

    I don't know your situation but, do you have access to a traditional printmaking program/studio? I think that your linear style would really shine as an intaglio or lithographic print.

    Really nice handling of the details in the clothing on your last piece.

    AUG - Thank you, that is such a huge compliment, and I really appreciate it.
    And, no, I don't have access to too much really. I looked up the lithographic and intaglio that you talked about, it looked really awesome! I'll have to look into it more.

    Here's a quick little thing I did of a picture of me in my $2 prom dress and handcrafted mask, it's an old photo and unfortunately I don't have a copy of the original photograph, I'll try grabbing it and scanning sometime, so you can see exactly how far off I am.

    Hopefully, I'll get some more studies done this week. I'm going to see if I can get access to a skull or a good pic of one. I'm having difficulty with facial structure and I think that might help a little.

    This week's chow. She's a victorian automaton made of bronze, copper, ivory, and pearls. So, the "fabric" will actually be metal.

    Another update. Need to fix her skirt if I can, looks a bit messy.

    EDIT: OK, tried to fix her skirt. This will probably be finished version. Depends on whether or not I have some time. So busy!

    I think I destroyed her face. So, I'm not sure if I'll turn it in or not. I plan on getting some more studies done and posted this week.

    Here's some things I've come up with for CHOW. I'm keeping the bottom one, but I'm going to make a few changes.

    And, a little bit of progress. Busier week than I thought it was going to be, so this may not be finished in time for Chow. Definitely a good excercise though!

    is always good to see your chows. i like your attention to the character design.your characters are interesting.
    lots of improvement on this sketchbook.
    as an advice, besides the anatomy studies pointed before by other users also try to feel the forms.look at your own body, at the mirror...do some acting. everything that help you understand what you are trying to portrait.

    keep the good work and have fun

    Definately seeing improvement so far. Keep it up!

    The stranger things appear the more real they usually are.

    DIMAGYAN - thank you for the advice. I will do that!
    Shannowman - thank you!

    Some more studies and a mirror self portrait. My face isn't extremely expressive right now, had a seizure today. Not that my face is ever that expressive.

    Ummm, is this copyright thing new? I was confused, I hope I filled it out correctly.

    great stuff MJ, it may help to do individual studies of legs, hands, arms, torso, etc. do pages and pages of the stuff, like Mr. Delicious and Alpenfleger. Mr Delicious especially, he'll do the same drawing of a leg over and over to get comfortable with the muscles and angles. After you get comfortable with those studies, combine them to create a whole figure. This may help you overall in your anatomy. Keep it up!

    Some hand studies! Well, actually I just drew my left hand over and over. Probably referencing my own hands are not a really great idea. My fingers jut out at weird angles which make them look broken, but at least I can get a general idea down.
    Also, a CHOW that I will hopefully finish this time.

    I messed up trying to color her dress. I'm going to see if I can fix that.
    I also redid the other WIP.
    I'm not sure which one to do for the Elizabeth Bathory CHOW.

    MJ: Just wanted to pop in and say that you've really been improving. I went back and counted all the chows that you did (15 out of the last 17) and saved them all to my hard drive.

    To be honest I'm really proud of you and you're one of the reasons that Chow is a joy to do every week.

    Please keep up the hard work! It's paying off! And Vorace is right, keep up with the studies.

    My finished CHOW. Well, actually far from finished. But, as much as I got done before deadline. It's still VERY rough looking.

    Work on newest Chow. Just a basic idea. I hope to get some research done and maybe come up with a better concept.
    Also, since I'm a little less busy this week. (or I should be) I hope to get some studies done.
