    Euthyphro's Fresh Start

    Hello CA. It's been a long while, much to long, since my last sketchbook and it is time for a fresh start. I seem to suffer from coming and going here. My first round lasted about a month, before a six month hiatus, and the second run was for a solid 4 months before a year and a half or so. So if the pattern continues this should last for 16 months and hopefully that will be long enough to set the discipline in place. So to start here is a SP I did in blue colored pencil last night. I'll follow with sketchbook pages from the last month and half or two months of drawing.

    The image quality is very poor because I am shooting them with a old cheap digital camera. I work at a print shop with a professional quality scanner but for the past four months I've been biking to work. In the future I'll try to take my book with me if you'll bear with me for the time.

    Cheers

    Here are the sketchbook pages a variety of stuff mostly ref'd. Some are from Loomis, some from sites like gracefulnudes.com, a few master studies et al. I have been working on thinking and drawing form hopefully that shows. Also these aren't any any particular order other than the way the opened in photoshop. I'll be back in a bit to put up my lunchtime sketches but for now I need a break from the upload manager.

    Cheers

    Crits are welcome, requested, bribed for, and coerced. Thanks.

    Okay so these are sketches that I've drawn during my 30 minute lunch break at work (I do design work at a print shop). There probably isn't a drawing that I used the whole 30 minutes for thought because CA threads call to me at lunch These are mostly master studies done from sculpture usually from the online art gallery at http://www.wga.hu. The first two are from Imagination (where I really suffer) and a few foxes and bears because no thread is complete without foxes and bears.

    Crits are encouraged, welcomed in, cared for, and raised to an age suitable to be released back into the wild.

    Cheers

    Well its good that so few people have been in here since I still haven't biked my book to work to scan it. More bad photos. Self portrait from tonight, a Brague drawing WIP (about 4hours so far, just by sight, not sight-sized), and a pen sketch from lunch.

    Crits are invited.

    Alright, here is the finish Brague with another 1 and 1/2 to 2 hours. The photo doesn't do it justice.

    Cheers

    EDIT: Quick study after Raphael's Putto carry the ring and feathers of the Medici - from Robert Beverly Hale Master Class in Figure Drawing. The Brague is on the same page and I think the contrast shows better in this shot. Contrast and what not touched up on Putto as the flash flooded out some of the subtlety. With Hale's book I've been trying to alternate reading a section one night between sketches and practicing the lesson the next night, read and repeat.

    Here are the last two days of lunch time sketching. Two master work self portraits. One is Courbet and the other is a Raphael something or other that I can't recall at the moment.

    Cheers

    Here is a quick sketch from today. Sorry about the poor quality. I think I might do some coloring on it later.

    The last three pics in your SB are definetely the best. In the Selfportrait, you could do with a bigger skull in relation to your face. The nude's done pretty accurate, but watch her droopy mouth and elongated left hand (left leg's on the small side also). Keep going as you're going i'd say, there's an upward curve in this SB.
