    Trial 2

    so, I've had a big issue with photoshop. i just can't get the feeling of analog medium. I fucked with the flow today and I'm liking where this is going. I DO NOT have a clean style. I make shapes slowly appear by adding a little at a time. This made for some cool stuff. Here's today's tests. I'm not going to note them... though I know I really ought to.

    On a side note. I love the CA community and the site, but seriously, this fucking upload shit blows. I tried doing my 1st image with it and it's a fucking pain in the ass. I want to upload MY work. I'm not going to fill out a form for 5 different pictures every fucking time I want to upload something. Hence, I'm using IMG tags. For anyone who doesn't like it, then get them to make this shit easier to upload 5 pics at once! I don't mind doing it for the gallery, but this shit is ridiculous!

    Hey Man,

    Looks like you're having fun with your stuff. That's a good thing. You've got some things starting to happen in your compositions as well. Maybe if you are posting here you are hoping to get better as well? If you posted some things you drew from life you might get some crits, or help to get better. Keep posting, we see you here.

    It's good that you're enjoying yourself. you should take some time away from digital work and color and just focus on your drawing. Sketch from life. Try to get things looking neater.

    Update

    ok, so I'll type some shit while my pics load...

    Been working on sketching like crazy. Not hard to do when you're lonely in fucking NoWheresville, VA. The following are things that I did either for DSG concepts or trying to draw women or just because.

    I'm running 2 sketchbooks lately. One is a graph paper spiral notebook. I love it because the sections are color coded. The stuff below is from my "good paper" sketchbook.

    I've found Panera to be a great source of inspiration. Also, they let me keep refilling my coffee for free. On top of that, the tables are big and I can spread my shit out.

    Listen to "Two Tongues." That's my life right now. One of the sketches is from track 5 of the album. that track alone is worth listening to.

    I broke my left ulna, so I needed some martial arts in my life too.

    Thanks to all my visitors. I worship you guys! I'm glad to get any feedback.

    That's why I love doing this so much. The competition aspect is simply to increase the wealth of skill and knowledge that exists. It's very supportive. I love it!

    I am totally proud and totally disgusted by this comic. It's my 1st shot, so I'm stoked to have completed it. I'm disgusted by parts of it:
    1. All the perspective errors
    2. Lack of deep coloring
    3. Weak anatomy in parts
    4. Weak fold/fabric design

    I'm absolutely frustrated. I moved and started a new career, trying to take my life in a new direction. I don't think it's working, honestly.... The more frustrated I get, the more I want to draw. Unfortunately, my work isn't getting much better... Here's an example of what I've been up to.

    Hey Deuce,

    You say you don't think you're improving but I do see improvement. You've got a nice sense of form in the Dinosaur character, nice caricature too. The people's headshots are getting better also and will continue to as you keep putting time into them.

    Good stuff.

    I've been restless lately. I checked out a couple of blogs and they keep talking about how awesome life drawing is, so.... I did it. Went to a session today, but I couldn't stay for the afternoon one, since I needed to read for classes. I was really surprised at how well I got the form compared to other people. It's a much different league of people in this than there was in my intro college classes.

    I struggled a lot with getting a solid shape down. I did a lot to work with the figure as opposed to the face, since this is an opportunity to see an actual figure that isn't mine. However, I often got too close and the heads ran off the paper. My method today often included using a really light gray copic marker to do the lay-in, and then went over it in pen or pencil.

    I stopped by the supply store on my way home, and bough some turquiose lead and a lead holder, so that I can see the lay in better. I really don't know where to go with this though. I would like to have a focus before walking in the room.

    Here are the highlights:
