    This isn't one of my proper daily images. But, since my intended victim for the daily engaged me in conversation prompted by his interest in my copy of Peck's Atlas, I'll just crap out and post my Peck studies for today: Pentel mechanical pencil with HB lead.

    Hey north pole,

    Thanks for visiting! I figured someone would notice the distortion on that-- I was hunched over an ottoman that I was using as a table-- I think the angle of my vision had me drawing an image that skews a bit when looked at straight on-- it's a thing I do too often!

    Grinning at the bathroom door frame. You're right.. it's these little things in life you only notice when you really look at them. And that's what I love about artists I remember drawing a corner of room once, with a door, and stumbling across the same "problem" of all the lines!

    I get some distortion on my drawings too.. I tend to tilt my head, and draw at an angle.. then when I scan, it shows

    Liking the tree studies last post. The forehead of the top skull looks a little elongated, or at least, longer than it does in the side view. But nice work all around!

    Insanity is the key!
    Also, studies are a key. And passion is a key. Also, so are inspiration, motivation and dedication. Talent can be a key. Insomnia can also be a key, depression is a sad rusty little key. Damn, artists need one hell of a keyring.

    Hi Aila!

    Things with lots of parallel lines drive my eyes and brain a bit crazy when I try to draw them. Later, I spent about 2 hours using formal perspective to analyze the "data" that I collected with that sketch-- my cartoon characters are getting better accomadations by the day. I've probably drawn those Peck skulls around 20 times in my life-- think I'd get them perfect!

    Still life with Dead Raccoon. (Stretched the time out to about an hour--no sense wasting a perfectly good dead raccoon). I was thinking about decapitating her to preserve a skull. But, being hit by a car really smashed up her face-- not a good specimen. Got lots of photographs of the elegant little paws though.

    at the raccoon drawing the dead human. Last study of the man driving looking good, maybe start shading in different directions/in the "direction" of the object? To kinda make the different components of the drawing stand out from each other.. first time I looked at the driver, for some reason my mind had delay in "sorting" out the image. Could just be me though. xD
    Thanks for commenting on my SB again, hope you had a good New Year's!

    Hey Aila!

    Driver shading mostly from my time limit thing! Values need more time for better working and blending-- so, often I end up with more "accent" than "modeling."

    And a good New Year to you!

    [Big "make up dump" coming to compensate for the past few days-- but just one for today!]

    More catch up stuff! (Bad attitude re scanning as of late!)

    Multiple conversation type sketches (some with less or no ball point underdrawing). Plus, ball point of shoes at outlet mall (abandoned after a few minutes) that missed the last batch.

    Hi Mister Kamber I love you please let me marry your sketches.

    Seriously though, nice work! Great that you keep to your schedule and your plan... I especially like the raccoon! Very good sketches, timing yourself is a great way to go. I would like to see some longer studies, though...
    I would study anatomy, though, especially the head. The female profile in post 143 is very angular and out of proportion, try comparing it to a photograph to see what I mean.

    Keep this up! Great work!

    Hey Monkeydominator!

    Marry my sketches? But, why "buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?!"

    Plan's sustainable, though some post holiday sleep disorder has/had me playing catchup. Glad you like the work! There's a little longer stuff in my Fine Arts thread; my old tsofa.com thread; and a new weekly I'm doing at cghub.com-- dang! Gotta get back on that Fine Arts thread, but been working on my comic stuff and some art history studies.

    Unfortunately, I'm well enough schooled in anatomy to have realized how badly I was goobering up that poor woman's face as I was goobering it up! She moved about 6 seconds into my initial ghostly-gesture-doodle that I start out with-- threw me off-- ended up putting a too big facial structure on a normal cranial structure-- ball point and conte are a very unforgiving combo!

    Anyway. . .

    The enviro for those two previous people; tiny cow contemplates giant pencil sharpener; two figures over a chair back (one bailed out).

    Hi Kamber Parrk,

    I like how you're drawing so much! You seem to fill your drawings with a lot of midtone shade; might I suggest this: try to cut down on so much filler shade, and identify where the important shadows are in the image you are drawing, and focus on them - push them so that they point out what the drawing is about. By having so many similar shading values all over, it seems to flatten the drawing and makes it harder for the eye to decipher it.

    Hope that helps! Can't wait to see more.

    Hey freakmod-- welcome by!

    Well, that's the second critique re readability of my filler stuff.

    And, I do understand what you're saying! (The problem with my way of working is that it simulates the way I would work up the drawing in graphite or vine charcoal-- which I would rub and work on with kleenex and kneaded eraser. But, I'm not giving myself the time frame for that level of work, and conte (per my experiments on similar tooth paper outside this book) doesn't rub all that well.) [Though, for high contrasty carefully built up small areas--like the Coon Paw--the stuff can be really clean and elegant.]

    I'll try to work in some higher contrast "3 tone a la Bridgman" type of enviros, see how it works. [But, for Book III, I'm already experimenting with sanguine as a somewhat more workable (at speed) media that is dustier, chalkier than black conte and allows for some smearability but is still neater than vine.

    Boot.
