    My TD entry. Although Sliverslash challenged me, he didn't sumbit an entry.

    There's a project I'm working on for my intro to illus. class where we had to fill a 30"x40" foamboard with 4"x4" thumbnails of what depression and anxiety mean to us and how we have experienced them. While sketching and looking in the thesaurus for different words relating to depression, I came along the word disorder which reminded me of when I was a little kid the kids would make fun of my big ears and that would make me depressed.

    So here are some studies based off pics I took of myself exaggerating proportions and especially the size of the ears.
    -Updated:9-15 Digital-

    and here's a quick rough I did(gouache) in my sketchbook of what the illustration is going to be like.
    -Updated:9-15 Digital-
    So the kid/person is depressed because of his deformity(or at least that's what I thought I sorta had when I was young) and above him is the idealized/perfect ear.(ironically it's my ear, that I once was made fun of).

    A sketch based on this metaphor:That tree of a man, scratching at the roots with his twisted claws. He wants in.

    That's going to be tight, man. I can't wait to see it all wrapped up. I like the background too stuff in there too. The big floating ear is great! LoL And hey, don't worry may all the goofy lookin' kids unite with the fat kids and take over the world! LoL It's funny how my fat self sort of became a part of who I am as I got older. There's just some crazy crap I couldn't make look funny if I were skinny! Yes, I know that's kind of pathetic. No biggie tho. You've gotta learn to love yourself or in my case, get my fatt arse on a treadmill. LoL Eh, the man just likes to eat. Keep it up, dude.

    Thanks everyone. I am also really excited about my ear painting.

    Jens: Great crit man. A lot of my figures aren't complete, cuz they're usually 5 min. poses or shorter so I dont have much time to do a fast drawing, so I concentrate on other things. Thx for pointing out that I dont draw the back of the head(Usually I stylistically make it flat, cuz I like the way that looks, but I should stop it for a while, and draw heads how they actually look). I do draw the ears to far back dont I?..stupid me...

    i'm really liking the stylistic life studies and the personal piece is beautiful, i think alot of people can relate to it. in my opinion i like the rough sketch where the guy is a quarter turned the best.

    so is that why you wear that signature hoodie?

    Burning eyes, nofish, complete: Thanks for the compliments

    saraesc: I also really like the drawing 3/4 turned drawing, but after messing with it, the one I chose really seem to be the best one. I wear my hoodie cuz it makes me comfortable, not to hide anything. I dont care about my ears anymore, cuz I grew into em.

    In my rendering class, we're working on a graphite piece. I'll explain what the whole thing is about when I post the finished version, but for now I'll show you guys the wip. (We have to use refs in order to get a photorealistic result)

    Ink, when I see your sketches it's very plain and easy to see the planes - when I try drawing people myself, I only see round forms, no planes and have great difficulties to think them "round". I wonder how you do it.

    Is that little sketchbook a moleskin? The de-saturated scans look really antique and nice.

    In your graphite photorealistic pic - what are the scissors stuck in? Is it a feather?

    liam: thanks, rendering scissors is kinda fun.

    jester:When drawing I try and emphasize the planes so that form reads. What I try to look for is the corners, and I can usually tell when they're there cuz of the light. If the value changes, that means that theres a plane change, and its easier to see wherever there's highlights.
    Yup, the sketchbook is moleskine. I love their sketchbooks, especially since you can paint in em, and you dont get bleed through unless you get the paper really wet.
    There's a piece of bamboo balancing on the tip of the scissors and a feather on one side.(ill explain the whole thing, when I post the finished version)
