    Wasp Visual cogitation time

    Here is where I will be posting digital and traditional sketches and work to show my progress through the years. I have been inspired by many people on this site and elsewhere to do this. I practice daily and hopefully one day I will be working the job I dream of. I'll be updating this as often as possible (hopefully weekly). Please give me honest feedback and criticism. I appreciate the time you take to look at my stuff and comment.

    About me: (updated Dec. 28, 2010)
    I'm a 21 year-old student now (at a lame state university with a crap art program), so I'm pretty much self taught. My goals are to get my bachelor's degree at the end of 2011, and then perhaps attend TAD or Art Center for entertainment design. I would love to work in a studio in Burbank one day and also do freelance illustration. One day when I'm older I'd also like to teach art and be a good mentor, especially since I know how much it sucks to never have a good art teacher.

    Haven't updated in a long long time, but here is a drawing I did for a class. It's Ganesh looking decrepit. I'll update with newer sketchbook pages once I get to a scanner.

    Thanks Dstrax.

    Yeah, I really have a lot more in my sketchbooks than what's up here, but the issue is getting them scanned. I might just try taking photos of my sketchbook soon. Either way, I'll try to have plenty more studies up soon.

    Once September rolls around, I'll have access to a good scanner, so I can't wait for that : p

    Thanks a lot : ]
    I'm going to be doing some lessons from this site in the community mentoring threads, so I'll post my work up from those in here. I'll also try to scan in some more pages today or tomorrow.

    Hi jeremyg0rd0n, cool stuff overall, really . My only advice would be keep posting/working on those studies.
    Would love to see some traditional paints too. Also trying to give crits, but that's hard cause I'm still at the "beginning" . Euhm, this is hard, some tips then maybe :p. I saw in post #3 you did some arm/trunk studies. I think they are from a book, am I right? No problem about that, but make sure you keep practicing from mind too.
    Do studies, practice from mind and get back at the studies when you don't remember the stuff you learned.

    So it's just about setting goals and keep improving. Search for things you lack off and studie those.

    I hope this helps ^^. Good luck!

    thanks for visiting my SB.
    Nice studies you are have here.One thing though,your head side profile studies seem too long and narrow. ( they might be your older stuff and you might have already known)

    keep at it dude!

    Nice work so far! You are definitely on the right path to reach your goals. I like the flow on the last couple posts, and I am envious of your flowing pencil linework. (I'm still stuck in the "feather feather feather" stage. ) Keep it up!

    you progress is looking great, you have a great sense of form. You should do some still life studies and just draw everyday objects. A lot of life drawing I believe will get you where your wanting to be quicker. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for the feedback. I've been at the beach for a week, but I managed to draw for a couple hours a day there, so I'll have some new sketches up within the week.
    Keep an eye out ; ]

    Thanks, I'll be putting up new sketches this week (finally have a scanner to use). Sorry for the long delay since my last post, I've just been busy drawing and studying for the most part.

    I really like your sketch book some thing to make me want to keep practicing. I'm curious though. Your earlier studies didn't look like the ubiquitous loomis (sp?), what were you working form at that point? Had you been able to work on figure drawing from life or something at your school?

    Wow! Some great stuff you've got here! You are definitely very skilled in the pose / drawing bodies department. I really like your eye painting and your animals ^_^

    I should start doing figure studies like you
