Thread: Recent Work.
September 1st, 2008 #1
Hi I'm an 18-year-old student, who's taking a Art Foundation course. (or will , in a weeks time)
The work you see below is from between October time last year, and July of this year. The second piece on display here being my exam entry, for my A2 art course. (Which was done completely in Watercolour.)
I used reference photo's with the work seen above. What annoys me is when I put my hand to anything from own head, it just turns into Animu bullshit.

Oh thats awesome. I also did an A2 portfolio a couple of years back... was quite a mission to get the work together. =/
I love the hatching and the use of colour in your work, but you should add a little contrast to your pencil drawings, you know, more variation with light and dark.
Keep it up =)

Here's some quick sketches I did of my hand. Most of which have been drawn in about 1 to 3 minutes, with a fineliner;
And here's a WIP of some musicians, drawn with a F pencil (With I intend to go over with a fineliner);

really like the first one the style reminds of the artist who designed Aeon Flux
I would watch out for the neck line and the head
something about the perspective seems slightly off with the head
I would suggest using curves as guides for body and then buidl up form and shapes around them
if the head is leaning back slightly the centre point will move back with it, as it is I think the eyes should be up further and the nose at more of angle
The head looks like its leaning back yet the placement of the features indicates the head would be looking forward... hope that sense I am running a slight fever so my thought process is a little abstract
I think some of the lines in the pieces need to pushed more there is slight muddiness
your large - persume self portrait is your strongest piece
Really like your Jeff Buckley piece but would like to see you push it more try and inject touches of personally some personal flare in to pieces like that also watch the noses;
your curves seem too straight, they seem too square.
Over all some strong pieces,
BTW the Thom Yorke drawing has a massive ear not sure if that was intentional
really like the first one. Keep posting each drawing is a step forward

Hi kagemusha22, some really nice pictures here, I really like those portraits, keep making studies from life and all anatomy stuff, it'll be easyer to draw humans from a head. And why dont u update this thread, I want to see improvement.

Sorry about the slow reply, just haven't had much work to show over the last few months, as I've been busy.
Thanks Brian; The first image (The woman with Ginger hair) was my first attempt at drawing some in a Egon Schiele manner. That's probably why it's similar to Peter Chung's work, as he drew influence from Schiele too. Anyway thanks for the critique.
Pijus; Sorry about the delay.
Kiyo Karma; For the black and white drawings I use Graphite pencils, the Manga drawings were made with a HB pencil, a fineliner and Prismacolour markers for the colour. The image of the woman on the pedestal, was made with a fineliner with pastel watercolour, and the image below that utilizes an F Graphite pencil and pastel watercolours again. The self-portrait was drawn with a HB pencil and I coloured it with pencil watercolours.

Here's some life drawings that I've done over the last few months.
Quick sketches, that were done within 3 to 5 minutes;
For these I used sketching chalk.

Here's how I developed my drawing style over the last couple of months months;
This is the first set lifedrawings I did for group I'm going to now, the drawing is quite clunky and the line isn't particularly fluid.
Then I decided to try and draw as few lines as possible, to just clean up my drawing style and have come up with these, over the last few weeks.

Here's some slightly more polished works;
This one was done pastels, within a time that I can't remeber now, but it was definitely over 20 minutes.
And this one was done in 30 minutes, with a 6B pencil and pastel watercolours.
There is another similar lifedrawing to this watercolour, that I did last Thursday, that's far better and was done in 50 minutes. But I put that on exhibition at my local art centre.
