    GO TO THE LAST PAGE AND COMMENT, FOR GOODNESS SAKE!!






    ----------


    Oh man, I've been viewing this site from afar since 2005... each time I'm intimidated even more and more and more, but NOW IS THE TIME I FINALLY JOIN. I want to get better, please take a look and tear my drawings apart. :3

    EDIT: I also apologize for the bad composition. I don't have photoshop and my digital camera is pretty awful.

    Powerfull stuff. I think I speak for everyone when I say that you need to post more.

    A first post is little to go on for high value comments and first posts are usually a mix of stuff from a wider time frame.

    I like your last pic's tonal power. Keep em comming!

    From Life Drawing class...

    The man posing for us reminded me of Bill from Left 4 Dead sooo much... I really wanted to ask him to come in wearing camo, but I believe that is a strange request when you're posing nude. Hehehe.

    The skeleton is incomplete. Funny story, actually. It was homework over the weekend, but it slipped my mind and I forgot about it. I worked on it for three hours last night and left with a major headache. Drawing the entire skeleton, fully rendered for the first time is hard work!!

    Here are some little dudes I'm doing for a Color Theory project in class...

    Supposed to do a gameboard and the professor gave us the idea to be, get this, CREATIVE. I totally want historical figures to fight alien zombie peppers.

    Yeah, it's not going to make sense, whatevs.

    Continued from my Color Theory project...

    Gave a shot at caricatures. I think I did them well for a first try.

    I'll post the other two later today.

    EDIT: Here they are!

    Here's a self-portrait I did... Sorry, the image looks like crap (stupid flourescent lights), but it's the best picture I could get.

    Anyway, I spent probably a total of 18 hours on it. I'm aware that the arms look awful and I crapped out on the hands (its deadline snuck up on me), but I'm proud of it because it's the largest painting I've ever done and the only painting I've done with a life reference (myself).

    Late late late update, but still an update, right? Also, sorry for quality, but I don't have a scanner to work with at the moment. ):

    I've been doing studies... and a few doodles here and there.

    The spinal column is still incomplete because I'm a lazy, lazy person.

    The characters are Kaiba, Popo, and Neiro from the anime Kaiba.

    The mannican drawings are Loomis.

    More drawings from last night/this morning.

    1. Some more mannican poses using photographs as references.

    2. My roommate had a mask she had to do a full value drawing of. I joined in and did some contour drawings... I like them. I kind of wish I did an entire page without the mannican drawings, but I've become so ecological that I MUST NOT WASTE MY PAPERSSSSS.

    3. I started this drawing as a contour of my roommate - don't take it seriously, I just love doing contours. Then I started using a brush pen to render the shadows, but it turned out like crap.

    4. Some copies from a figure drawing book. The skeleton needed a tutu.

    5. MORE MANNICANS!

    1. Contour drawing of my friends' apartment... it's a mess!! I felt like I needed some practice drawing atmospheric stuff. I tried to put in some perspective but it didn't seem to have much of an effect. Oh well... At least I finished it!!

    2. Random character. Her left arm is missing because I didn't know where to put it. Mmmphhhhhh... red lines would be nice.

    Hi there, you have some nice stuff in here. Good grasp on anatomy, keep doing the figure studies it's always helpful.
    Also, I wanted to point out that I really like the first drawing in post #9. It may not be accurate but it has something raw, that makes it interesting.
    It's full of life, and I something that's something you should strive for in your art, I know I try to.

    Keep drawing, keep updating

    Duuuuuude you gotta post your work more often! Good start! Great to see you using loomis and doing other studies. Your rendering is good but your latest post doesn't show it...try to push that more if you can and maybe do some drawings from imagination utilizing what you've learned through studies. Keep it up!

    MORE CONTOURS. I JUST FREAKING LOVE CONTOURS. HOLY CRAP.

    Another of the apartment featured in an earlier post.

    SeB_C_BiEn - Thank you very much! I always thought that I had a terrible grasp of anatomy, but I guess that's because I never drew with any references until I started these.

    - Thank you, I will try to start rendering more even with short poses. I guess speed is something I should work on as well. I take forever to make full value drawings because I'm so picky about light and shadow... EVERYTHING HAS TO BE PERFECT.
