Here's some more. Unfortunately, lips and torso's happen to be my weak point and right now the book is chock full of 'em.
Hey, everybody! Happy new year! (and birthday to me!) I have to admit, I've never been very good at keeping up with updating things like this. (As you can probably tell since my last post was in freaking November. But I'm going to try my best now to keep this updated frequently.
Apologize for the not-so-good quality of my webcamera for these. I'm hoping I'll find a decently priced scanner soon that Vista decides it likes and wants to run.

Been really busy with school and applying for scholarships lately, but I've managed to snap a few photo's of a project we're doing in art with my cell. We have to paint some kind of furniture with acrylics and I'm going to try "The Red Hat" by Thomas Musgrove Joy.
I have to admit I'm not very good with traditional paints and I prefer oils over acrylic a lot. (Mostly because acrylic dries so fast I can hardly even use what I've mixed.)
Some of the drawings are hard to see, but it looks like you're drawing a lot and you're doing the right studies. Which is good because then you'll always improve. That Maya creatute is cool. I remember how much of a pain that program was, haha.
Here's another update. Unfortunately I wasn't able to take any picture of my stool we're working on at school, so I can't show how its going. Although I am making a bit of progress in my Bridgman book, and have finally reached the hands! (Although considering how bad I am at them I'm not sure if its a good thing or not. :p) Looking forward to finishing this book and moving on to the next one, though! (I've got about five or six more, haha.)
Decided to lurk your SB after your post in Art Discussion.
You have a very solid work ethic-- your Bridgman studies will serve you well!
Helpful Criticism: You have a tendency to focus on the outlines of the figure. Try studying The Human Figure by John H. Vanderpoel to gain more insight into developing the internal planes of the figure.
as far as i can see, when you draw from books you make the lines straight and long, but when you don t actually see the lines (like in the gesture drawings) you tend to make the lines very fuzzy.
i can see that you improved on this in the later studies keep it up

Ugh, really sorry for not updating for a bit. I had come down with some awful bug and was out of school for a while, and as a result when I came back I had tons of homework I needed to catch up on. (One of the downsides of having ten classes!) Hopefully I'll have a bit more up on here by the end of today.
We're starting a new project in art, and thankfully I don't have to go out and buy a stool again. However since my teacher just loved the other portrait I did she insisted I do another one. (I wanted to do something simple this time!) I guess its not all bad, I just don't really have the hang of acrylic paints and I think I prefer oil more.
