JULY 1 --The Hermit starts again!
EDIT: Better stuffs on the last page. Thanks to you all!
I finally got the courage to start a SB here. I know I have a longgggg way to go before something great happens.
My whole life I've drawn, but it wasn't until last year that I decided to take on art as a career, and going through my first year in art school, I realize how ultra n00b i am. T_T
I have big dreams and ambitions, so Ive put my work load on full throttle!
I love the community here on CA, you guys have the best advice and motivation.

Not much today because it turned to be a bad morning and lost my time for figure study xx But I purchased a MB download of Zhang Lu and Jason and started doing the studies. Bad days don't mean you stop making art.
I will do hand and feet studies tomorrow, because I know I hardly draw them, and mostly because I know that they will turn out bad. I need more practice!!!
And in pencil, I need to go back to traditional and get my foundation skills back up to par.
The zhang lu portrait studies: The first one done without a ref, you can tell it's UBER PHAIL.
Second one with a ref, and came out much much much better. I will continue making more portraits tomorrow from that awesome tutorial.

Hey Hala, great start and you seem to have done this before. definitely doesn't look like the work of someone just starting out! Man that Zhanglu vid must have been really inspirational and definitely digging the tonal structure in the ref portrait in your last post, man once you put that color overlay on, I think there is definitely going to be some magic happening =)
As for life drawing, search Craigslist and the web because I'm actually from NJ but living in NYC right now and found a place down in Princeton NJ that had life figure drawing even though it was really tiny. I think it was like $20 or 30 for a 3-4hr session which is wicked expensive. But better than nothing in rural juhzey! And if you ever make it to the city definitely check out spring studio down in soho, usually only like $7-8 for 3-4hr sessions and also michael alan's drawathon which is kind of funky live theatre figure drawing where they got costumes and stuff.
Can't wait to see more of your traditional works once u feel up to par!!

I appreciate that ^^
Hmm, thanks I will definitely look into that. I didn't even think to look on craigslist. Lol that is wicked expensive , but beats the closest thing to my house which is a once a yr event at a local museum, 40 bucks to get in xx. I really want to check out those venues in the city, the costume one sounds interesting!
XD oh lawlz "rural juhzey" its so true !

nn nothing really proud of in this dump. I'm gonna work some more tonight on studies. I know I really need them.
Sketches, and unfinished studies.

oooo... sweet b/ws dude.
And I always dig the feel & look of sb-007 type sketches.
I'm still scared to do hand studies.
[I assure you, if you see my current state/level, you'd be scared too. blahahaha.]

lol i was scared to do hands too but this morning i got up and was like "fk it. You'll never get better if you don't".
my past hand studies always looked like either marshmellows or bones x.O
haha getting philosophical again?

I went to the library today!!
Got a burne hogarth book on dynamic lighting, anatomy for artists...sargent's works..etc etc
so here are some small studies.
couldn't do any digitial work today because of leg problems preventing me from sitting down at my normal pc
These are all referenced from Anatomy For Artists.

I am digging those hands for sure.

I love doing hand studies, even tho they are challenging.
I've been working on my newborn entry (in the contest thread), so not much speed paints to show >< I need to work that in, they are my goal.
Just an updated WIP on the character design from post 1, and some more studies because "anatomy for artists" is wonderful.
I really hope to find a space in my house to get some larger charcoal drawings started.

i dig the dedication!
i like the work in progress in your last post. :]
one weak spot i see in the painting is the pelvis. it appears very front view, even flat. I did a paintoverish type of thing just now, assuming her hips are facing the same direction as her upper torse.
again, i love your dedication. keep up the good work in your sketchbook. it's only been a few posts in and i already see progress!

thanks so much for the red line! I was having a lot of trouble with the pelvis, your red line makes it much clearer, thanks! I understand the shape of it now at the view much better

Some nice work in here hala!
Really dig the pose work, and the anaotmy studies (Hogarth or bridgman?).
And the portraits are awesome! Really good work there, values look good so far!
Keep at it, and thanks for the visit to my thread!
