Spork891's (sort of) Daily Progress
Well, I decided to just go ahead and resurrect the old thread, since it has a lot of my old stuff in it.
What I'm currently working on: Trying to develop a shading technique, trying to get my perspective right, planning on doing some more work out of Loomis as soon as I get a spare moment.
I'll be drawing daily, but uploading only... maybe semi-daily. I'm an engineering student trying to teach myself to draw one day at a time.
(I look so sad, it was before finals after all.)
Most recent SP (Early August):

this is good work, the only critism is that the face seems a little elongated and the neck a little long, otherwise it's good work. i've just started my own daily sketchbook, look out for me.

More self portraits
Been working on self-portraits lately. I have heard it is a common practice to do these daily. Might not be the right strategy for me, I usually only have time for one semi-complete drawing a day at the most!!
This one is a little better than yesterday's in some ways as the proportions are more correct... but on the other hand it looks less like me.
This is a gesture drawing I did from a photo reference online
and this is something out of an ad- magazine (Ralph Lauren Ad)

Read about half way through a Loomis book last night, pointed out a few things I have been missing, it was late so I was only able to practice on a few heads. Still seems like I can't draw the skull from *any* angle y'know?
Server isn't workin at the moment, but eventually eh?

Thanks you two for stopping by!
Now that Xmas is over I can post some things I have been working on. I have been doing a lot of mediocre stuff lately trying to relearn how to draw a few things. First here is something I just finished.
This is a ref from an FHM magazine I had on hand. This morning I went a little crazy and started slashing references out of every magazine I own. :bash:

Haven't posted for a couple of days because I haven't really been drawing much, the reason is that I promised to do this and I really didn't want to since it's pretty cheesy. I vowed not to draw anything else until I got this done since I promised it would be done a *year!!* ago.
In spite of my lack of interest I managed to make it look pretty decent IMO. (It's of course very cartoony, not going for realism here.)
C&C welcome of course as it always will be.

Maybe it's ridiculous to do this since this is a "daily" sketchbook.
But here is all of the random doodling and sketching I have been doing aside from my more detailed stuff.
One thing I'm beginning to notice is that I am far more inclined to just sit there and doodle from imagination than to draw from life... I think I'm going to have to push myself a little more often. At least once a day. ;-)
Actually come to think of it some of these are from the other night when I read an entire Loomis book cover to cover.
And that is all.

Had a last minute push of energy and decided to resume work on my self portraits. :-)
Done with my new prismas and brush pens.

Hehe, I hope so... well actually now I can't see anything either, probably server troubles.
