5 stars? Definitely not deserving of that, that means a lot guys.
6 Sided - Heh, the direct opposite direction. I take the BNSF Metra to Aurora, directly west. Though I'd love to just chill make some art. I try to bring some people together after school sometimes to draw someones portrait. When it gets warmer I'd like to actually go outside someday.
towy - I'll take any critique. Once school winds down I'll start on more varied subjects.
Taneli - Thanks! I submitted those still life's and a few life drawings to the schools freshman fundamentals show and got 1st (for http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1265608870) and 2nd place for the still life with the ball and vase.
Jasper_ - Dude, thanks a lot, I love your sketchbook. I check back every now and then.
Dr poPcoRN - And your sketchbook is devastating Dr poPcoRN!
Small update from today.
1- Finished up this weeks painting. I could have taken another day last Wednesday but chose to go see a rep from Winsor Newton. Not the best idea. Oh well.
2- 1st pastel I've ever done. Nupastels on White Mi-Tientes.
3- Sketchers. SP turned out a little odd, I was seeing too many abstract shapes and got distracted.

crimsoneye - Thanks, it is good to see more people from around here.
Small update for now.
1 - My little sister, pastels. I'm upset that I couldn't capture the true colors but it's better than nothing.
2 - My friend Doug came in and posed. Didn't flinch for a second.

Oatestwder - Go for it man. It happens to me all the time. I get inspiration by looking at other sketchbooks and then I just browsing more until I realize I just spent an hour page after page...
1 - I'm really excited about not screwing this one up. Largest painting I've done yet as it's a two week pose that I have three more 3 hour sessions. 16x20.
2 + 3 - Gestures from last week. Interesting as the year is almost up and we got the same model from my very first gestures I posted which means some similar poses.
4 - 2nd try at pastel. I approached it with more of a crosshatch technique.
5 + 6 - Some 1 or so sketches from a few weeks back.
7 - Last Tuesday's watercolor instructor posing for us. Decided to kind of go with a more painterly style. Really fun.
8 + 9 - Sketches of people, also tried to go for a more loose style but should have kept a better eye on proportions and form.

Nice sketches, especially the hand figures on the yellow paper. I also like the first pencil / coloured added ones.

JasonHickey - Hey man, I'm going for illustration. The first year every class is very fine art based and after that it becomes pretty focused on whatever course you decide on. So everything now has to do with fundamentals, life drawing, etc... But I love the fine art side. As soon as school ends in two weeks I'll focus more on areas I haven't really played with. I'm not sure of your situation, but I'm sure you could find a way to improve without the need of school, right? What do you want to go back for?
I've been sick for the past week so not much got done. That painting that I mentioned above won't be finished as I never came back for all three sessions.
1 - Trying out watercolors on Arches rough.
2 - Still life with black and white charcoal.
3 - 3rd pastel. My goal was to try a different technique with each of these pastels since I've never used them before. I quite like this broad suggestive way of working. Only took about 3 or 4 hours.
