We're No Sketchbook
Hey everyone. I promised myself that if i got into the Cleveland Institute of Art that I would start another sketchbook, and if i didn't then i wouldn't because i just wouldn't feel worthy. Well I got the acceptance letter this morning, so that gives me the go ahead to begin embarrassing myself! i will post the stuff i do during the day, whatever that may be, probably all spring and summer until i ship out and start getting my ass kicked! YES!
My favorite artists are....James Kei, Kieran Yanner, Daarken, Coro, Wes Burt, Marko Djurdjevic, Justin Sweet, algenpfleger, Daniel C, Archipelago, Dile, Mr. Blonde, MindCandyMan, dan milligan, noxizmad, shawn barber....and the greats like Caravaggio, Sargent, as well as all the ninja turtles.
I study out of bridgeman, Loomis, Hogarth, Richer, comics, some various others and porn.

i like the bunny painting, creepy and cool. for the shadow side, you might want to try using some pink in there as reflected light, could make the painting pop out a little more. your studies are amazing, very lively and real.
oh, and congrats on your acceptance letter, that's a fine school you got into!

You really do draw butts well. I'm guessing not a boob guy then.
Everyone has off days(sometime I feel like mine outnumber my good ones) but on this one http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1236915871 watch the direction of your lines when you shade. Right now the way the strokes on your shading run they flatten the figure. Also the arm over the chair looks like it should have some foreshortening happening, but she could have just been posed strangely so I'm not sure on that one.
Nice sketchbook. Keep it up. Love the butts"This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy." -Douglas Adams
My goal: To get good enough to post in the Finally Finished Forum.

joe824: thanks man! i have been trying to use some cooler colors but to no real success. this will probably be a work in progress for a long long time.
myorangehat: yeah i know what you are saying there, i just wasnt paying much attention i suppose. i did this from a photo and pretty much half assed it which i do with most things i do from photos, its a pain in the ass for me really haha. and thanks about the butts, i butts. butts butts butts.
well i have recently bought a few of these online videos from mb and they are so awesome. i bought a few of the coro ones, one of whit brachnas, james kei's, and some others and i think i learned a lot just from hearing those dudes talk. one of the key things i liked the most was coro saying something like..."i judge an artist by how good he draws hands and heads"...therefore im going to work on those all summer before school starts....and whit brachna saying something like "i never tried to make up my own style, i just want to make a successful image." and ive taken that to heart too. i feel a lot more free in my drawing lately because of that, im just trying to make things look good! i want to draw good, thats all i effing want. ef. fuck. ok.

Excellent studies here man. I definitely wouldn't mind seeing some of your finished work. All looks pretty damn good here though. Great pencil work.
