    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.

    soros - Thanks soros.

    I forgot one more thing I did a few days ago. It was a portrait of my sister for my grandparents but I don't think I got the likeness down completely. She looks a few years older than she is now.

    Hey! I love the way your work is going. What kind of course are you on? Is it pure fine art? I'd love to go back to college and get a degree but I'm torn between the want to improve and the cost..

    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.

    1 - Final for Life Drawing 102, 13 hours. I don't know, I measured the head, chest, everything multiple times and it all seemed to match up. But in the end it still seems like the chest is a little too wide though he's leaning back...

    2 - Friend came over to pose, about 3 hours. Trying to play with edges.

    3 - It's the little things that give me a lot of trouble. I had to erase the prongs 10 times over before I just went ahead and painted them before I ripped the paper.

    4 + 5 - Last open session, will complete it this time...

    6 - Sketcherz. Is it just me or are Vanderpoel's eyes crosseyed?

    Hey!

    I just want to go back to have time to learn the things I was never taught the first time. I did a two year practical diploma in computer animation with very little focus on colour and light and the use of traditional materials. I also want to go back to work in 2d full time instead of 3d all day long. Booooring!

    I love the study of your friend, it has a lot of warmth in it compared to some of your other studies.

    Wow, it's awesome that you've made such dramatic improvements in such a short period of time! You're a real inspiration. Your oils paintings and life drawings are fantastic, but I particularly like your moleskine sketches. They're so lively and loose!

    Which school are you studying at?

    Can't wait to see more!

    JasonHickey - Yeah, everyone here is required to all take the same fundamentals and life drawing classes no matter what major, illustration, photography, 3D animation, advertising, etc... Thing is a lot of the animation majors don't think the life drawing is beneficial to them since they're going to be drawing "cartoons" anyways.

    I wonder if the warmth comes from the toned paper, I find all the pastels in my set to be very cold.

    Belindi - Thank you so much man. It's nice to know what I do actually has an effect to someone across this vast digital space. I'm currently attending the American Academy of Art in Chicago. Also known as "you mean the Art Institute, right? Because that's the only art school here in Chicago."

    1-3- Oh God, I really need to work on my gestures...I feel bad just uploading them.
    4- Almost done with this study. 9x12 on cheap Utrecht canvas board. Will do a few touchups tomorrow, mostly on the face.
    5- Trying out some of that bulk of Reeves BFK paper I have laying around. It's different, but it's really tough, quite nice.
    6- Self portrait + finishing it at 4:30 in the morning = goofy expression. I tried to get an oily look to the pastels, been looking at a lot of Sargent type portraits.
    7- Drew my friend on the way home same night we had the session. He said he looks like Trevor Goodchild.

    Beautiful work, I'm bookmarking your sketchbook so I can come back and look at it for inspiration. You have such a fluent style in your work. It's breathtaking.

    whatpants - Thank you very much.

    1+2 - Henry Yan inspired gestures.
    3+4 - Head studies. I did one and started over but I wasn't able to finish because the instructor saw I was the only one left in class and told the model to stop. What?
    5 - So once she stopped I asked my friend to pose for a bout half an hour. There were quite a few people coming in and out, couldn't concentrate very well. I wish it came out better, features are really off.
    6- Just trying different techniques with watercolors. I want to get better with them.
    7- My friends girlfriend posed a second time last night. Very fun.
    8- Finished touching up the study. Love doing these.
    9+10- First one I tried just some expressions out of my head. Second one was from a fun train ride. Had a bunch of girls hiding from the conductor and a couple (one was a white sox and one was a cubs fan) arguing.

    Chr. Steam - Thanks

    School's out for the summer, time to get to drawing. I'll try to attend the weekly drawing sessions downtown at the Tojo Gallery and the Drawing Workshop whenever I can.

    Goes as follows:

    TDW - 40s, 1m, 1m, 2m, 5m, 5m, 10m, 15m, 15m, and 25m
    TG - 1m, 5m, and 1 h and 30m

    Henry Yan again. I just find this method really quick in laying down a figure.

    It's good to be back at the Wacom. Second try at a still life. Had trouble with the jar, especially the top.

    Great works here. It's nice to see you tackle so many mediums and succeed with them. As a sketchbook for viewing, this one is a joy to go through.

    Keep it up!
