    Heeey, welcome! No worries about your phobia it's only natural. As for you sketches, they're looking good and it looks like you have a good sense of form. That creature sketch is creeepy looking so thumbs up for that one. Also, what stands out the most to me are your facial expressions- they've a lot of character and emotion. So far so good, but put some more stuff up, even your "bad" sketches. PEACE.

    Just a note: so there's no misunderstanding, I don't expect to be handled with kid gloves. I would enjoy any form of critisism.

    The first one is actually a test of a copperplate print i was doing a few months ago. Sometimes a different kind of ink can make all the difference in the world.

    The drawing that says "pig" says that because that's what my friend thought it was. I was just trying to make a horse with a gigantic head.

    Set a goal

    Friday's sketches, going to try to post something every day, that way I have more of an incentive to keep up with my art while studying geology. It's tiring stuff, man!

    Today in welding the fill rod somehow got under the mask and burned a line on my neck right under my chin. The bandaid wouldn't stay on, so I had to wrap my ace bandage around my neck to keep it on. Someone made the remark that with the bandage, my knit hat, and my black hood, I looked like a nun. Maybe tomorrow I'll draw a self portrait...

    by the way, I've gotten extremely heavy handed ever since I've started getting more strength in my arms. does anyone know a trick to keep yourself from digging the paper to the point that you can't erase? I try, but...

    Haha. "Help I am too ripped to draw!" I wish I had your problems.

    It looks like you're doing pretty good. I don't know what the context is for this recent drawing of the cans on the desk, but the perspective is a bit confusing. Although it is good to be loose when you're sketching most things, I wonder if the geometric shapes of a desk and a can need energy more than they need careful measurement?

    Also, you have the typical habit (I think everyone does it) of drawing the face in great detail and then generalizing the rest of the form. I wonder if it would help you to spend some time doing drawings where this relationship is reversed? Forget about the face and focus on arms, or clothing, or whatever.

    Keep posting!

    I know... I was really hating that one. The perspectives would just not line up. And I know I need to work more on getting more detail in thebody, but maybe I just needed someone to also tell me it for it to really matter. By the way, hammering metal for hours on end will get you the definition you want!

    So the bandaid that I put on my burn left a red mark around it, and it look like a halo punctuating it, so I drew it. Also, the snail that all these burns are from working on. More tomorrow.

    Are you going to paint or color that snail in any way? I really like the way it looks so far.

    You've got cool idea, I really like that "Knock out" image, and it's good that your working on studies too.

    Lol, I don't know how to help you with your hulking upper body problems. It's a problem I've never run into. Be careful?

    No, I'm not going to paint it. Trust me, the colors are a lot better in real life. I have the snail put up in the WIP if you want see more of it. It's "Nathan, the snail with trees growing out of him".

    Yes, I remember seeing it a day or two ago when I was trying to get help on some work. I didn't feel comfortable commenting because I know absolutely nothing about metal work.

    Have you considered putting some smaller details like little tiny trees or twigs coming out of the back? Like you would see growing on a very steep hill?

    Ya I used a technique called drip welding today to make some, it's the same thing I did for the slime stalactites. Do you think it's good enough to post in the 3D forum? And it's definately alright to comment design-wise. Who knows what kind of ideas would come of those suggestions!

    first one is of Kat during a critique in welding, altough she moved before I got every thing I wanted down. I asked her later if it was alright if I posted this here, and she said that for all she cared, I could post her naked. She's a firecracker, that one. second one is a continuation of an earlier sketch.

    Question Smokestack People

    This is something I was thinking of doing with a copperplate print and monoprinting. The thumbnail is just a really rough idea, but would look like a town around a coal plant. I don't know if it's the mouth or the smoke but I just can't get it to look forceful enough, like the smoke is really chugging out. Ideas?

    Awesome snail!

    "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye."
    Matthew 7:3-5

    Thank you, Rhoades. Just did the critique in class and the only thing the teacher could find wrong with it was that it wasn't flush with the table on the bottom.

    Thank you, Basham. Hopefully I can get a lot better than just faces.
    For now, though, I present Phil. more later. Namely, my friend using a pick axe trying to crack up the ice covering his apartment's pool.

    The faces you do are wonderful, I would probably like to see the same amount of work put into the rest of the bodies. I would also keep working on your perspective, the cups look a bit off in comparison to the dresser. Other than that, I like you sketches keep drawing!

    Yeah, I know. The thing is, the heads don't take me that much time at all. I just am always having to go somewhere else before I can finish. That's why I'm reeaaallly going to be working hard on my other areas this winter break. I promise!!! Otherwise, I owe you a soda, Alex Obert.

    Prints

    I feel like posting some of my prints from the last few years, so I'll start with these few woodblocks, and do some copper plates later.

    The first one is one that I did in high school. I wanted to create something where different surfaces had different angles of lines.
    I can't believe that I would be sitting in the back of the class carving into wood, and the teachers didn't say anything!

    The next one is my version of Hokusai's The Great Wave off Kanagawa, which although a little blotchy, still turned out pretty good.

    The one at the bottom is the print that is dearest to me. This small woodblock is of my dog Taffy, who died of cancer around this time last year. She was only my dog for 5 months, but I had known her for around 8 years. Before I had worked on my interactions with others, she was my only close friend and would always wait for me outside our backdoor. She was wasting away at the time I made this, and at some points I couldn't even work on it. But with all that emotion, it ended up capturing the spirit she had in her.

    Was really busy today, so didn't get done with this drawing. Later this week will post the finished version of previous unfinished sketches.

    [edit]PS: sorry these have been so big, I'll fix them once I can

    figure drawing is great, you're scratching fearless that's the way
    but I think you need more patience when rendering
