Newest work is on the last pages ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I also have a few studies containing nudity. Please note that.
Well here is my attempt at a second sketchbook after my first one died some time ago. I'm planning to keep this one alive by posting my work that I am doing for my Diploma of Fine Arts. I really want to follow my progress with this one.
Just a quick Intro, I'm Karein, 23 and a female artist wannabe in Sydney. Have always drew, Recently become obsessed with refining my drawing skills lol. So, I will probably base most of my work in Trad for the movement, Until I am a little more confident to move into Digital.
Anyhow, here is some art
The first piece is a still life in Prisma. Second is a life drawing and a referenced image from the cover of GUP magazine (Issue 17) and the third is an A1 drapery study that drove me nuts 0_0 Cover the whole page in Vine Charcoal and then used an eraser to cut back the highlights. Lol. I don't think I have ever been so dirty....

Great stuff, I love the fabric study! I'm sure it was a huge mess! but the result is far from messy at least ;D
Since you've been tutoring me with values, I've been practicing a lot with making sure I get good values so thank you! It took me a while to understand what limited values were but I finally figured it out.
Sorry I'm not to great with my teachings though lol. Still learning myself, so I'm kinda just like, 'push them more!' Lol. I'm hopeless. But thanks for dropping By Amianna
I have a bit of a junk/ dump post now, It's all unsorted work, which annoys me, but it is all recent. I will try to be a bit more consistent with my postings, but I would rather get this all done now in one hit
I'm trying to focus a little on Observation at the moment, So all are from Life, Except the last one which was Photo referenced for a Painting I am currently working on, and the Gestures of course
Thanks HerrleerzeichenS, I'm glad you like the door, My teacher really likes that one as well. He thinks it's an artwork on it's own lol. Thanks for stopping by
Thanks for stopping by Alex, I'm glad you enjoyed what I have here so far
A few random things today, not alot though. Been very busy, mainly doing larger works, and been terribly stressed out for personal reasons. The first piece is an A1 Still life I had to do today, In Conte. Second a Life drawing in my Moleskine with a sharpie. The third is a still life I need to pull apart and make a cubist work for my next painting, and the last is the actual painting of the door at the moment. (If it looks like I am doing anything wrong with the painting let me know lol. It's my first time doing something like this and I have had little to no practice with Oils :/)
New stuff for today. The first two were from my class this afternoon. We were supposed to do a quick hand drawing using our whole bodies for the work. We had to use two or more A1 sheets, which was really fun. I've never worked on such a big scale before. These were both around 20 minutes, Charcoal and Conte. I wasn't very focused on the anatomy, I know But this one was more about enjoying myself and the physicality behind it
The second one is a page out of my sketchbook from last night. Doing ccsears Ink tutorials. The last two are just from a 'random' image search on google All using a fine tip pen. I'll scan the image sometime over the weekend, so please excuse the photo
Thanks for dropping by Strings. I did enjoy the hands, doing my diploma is actually making me stop myself from being so critical of my work, and taking everything so seriously and perfectly. The teacher's I have are great, they keep pushing me
Well here we have another longer post, Due to more stupid circumstances stuffing me around. Anyhow, long story short, I had some douche bag run into my car while I was waiting to turn at the lights yesterday, My car needed to be towed and currently at the smash repairers, so no car, and to make matters worse, the only injury I got, was on my goddamn drawing hand! Gah. It's driving me nuts. But hey, Today I found out I am ambidextrous
The first page of referenced figures are from CharacterDesigns.com, 2nd and 3rd are from Drawing-Tutorials-Online. (The first Which I done this morning, to test out my hand)
The rest are really just work from school, and a few doodles. Oh, and the crappy cubism work is for my painting class.

Thanks for dropping by wookiedabo I get what you mean with the lines, I will try to take a little more care with them, On the last five pictures they were intentional, as I was using my left hand for the first time, and really wanted to try and control the line as best as possible. I had so much trouble trying to control the weight of those lines, So I will have to practice with my left incase another injury happens lol. I'm glad you like the faces though, I'll get that piece finished and do a few more
Not too much today, we had a really weird set up with flowers and skeletons and material yesterday, So the work is a little random. The first two are prelim studies for a triptych we had to do, and I ended up not really caring what I done for the actual piece. It was all letting loose the stress from this week really. Tom Waits is god when It comes to putting me in the right frame of mind for my work lol. I will need to get more of his albums.
