    update

    ok....got sidetracked! with classes and such, so didn't have time to update, but I'm done with the classes at the community college now. I plan to take about a year off from school to focus solely on getting better, practicing drawing and painting on my own. I suck a bit less now, but I still suck nonetheless. I'm gonna post a lot of older sketches from the last 2 years, up until the newer sketches, and I want to update daily from now on, any comments, advice, would but much appreciated thank you!

    Older sketches from 07-08:

    [I'm 27, and I've wondered around for 8 years. That was
    8 years too long. If it's in the heart we should just go for it.]

    A lot of anatomys which always helps.
    I'm currently hovering around values and colour. Composition and
    perspectives .

    [I've only just accepted the value of real life studies. I'm starting with still
    lifes. An apple won't run away, except in my tummy]

    Keep up the studies mate.

    Your figure drawings and anatomical studies are going great! This is exactly the kind of work I need to be doing, and seeing this progress is a great motivator.

    Keep it up!

    well, turns out I had more stuff to do for class this week, but now I'm done for real with everything, so I'll officially start my self-taught/practice journey thing this Monday. But here's a small update for a last in class still life oil painting:

    May 11 - May 14

    These are studies/drawings done from this Monday until today. Originally I had planned out a list of things to do each day, but it was harder to follow the schedule than I thought! I ended up spending 4 days just for the 1 day schedule....but I think I'm getting better at keeping at it. My schedule was:

    - Posemaniacs Gestures (1 hour)
    - Study/Practice Loomis/Bridgeman/Villppu about 20 pages (2 hours)
    - Draw portrait (1 hour)
    - Draw from life (1 hour)
    - Paint (2 hours)

    So far, I finished the first 4, haven't done the painting yet, I'm going to do value studies with the oil paint today, then start the "day 2" schedule, which is a repeat of the above list.

    So the past few days I realized it's better to focus on one area per day, because I get more out of it, rather than trying to rush doing the different things I set for myself on the list. So these are studies done from Loomis' Fun With a Pencil, I think I learned a lot on how to draw a head from these, and I also started a value study with oil earlier, and will focus more on that next:

    I see youre working on heads, here is some advice : something that was invaluable to me in learning how to draw heads was to sculpt a small replica of a human skull. Whether you draw it or sculpt it, make sure you put good amount of time into studying that. Also for your figure drawings, I recommend when you start to first approximate the locations of the core : skull, spine, and pelvis

    keep up the good work

    I decided to take time off before transferring because I wanted to rebuild my portfolio piece by piece. This is the first piece I'll include in my portfolio, it's a still life I worked on the past few days with charcoal:
