    The extra time really paid off on it. To me it actually has a bit of a 3d feel to it (err like 3d program, which I mean as a compliment).

    And yeah his new stuff is looking crazy.

    skMOP: Thanks man! That is a huge compliment!

    Alright, so I figured I better not let that last study go to waste and did a super quick portrait from my mind. It was honestly really fast...I dunno the exact time, but probably like 10-20 minutes.

    I definitely agree with skMOP. These last two are fantastic. Your quick work is becoming really ace. Just...dang.

    Keep this up man, you're definitely on to something.

    Great updates Andrew you are progressing so well. The asaro head and this last one show just how much. Good luck with your portfolio application, where are you hoping to get in?

    I dig your traditional work. Really nice Bridgman studies! For digital I would definitely slow down and focus more on structure and drawing. Good luck with the portfolio!

    eekolite: Thanks man! I did fee la bit of a level up with those haha, let's hope it continues.

    Marian Rowling: Thanks! I'm applying to the Illustration program at Sheridan.

    h2rra: Thank you for the crit! I'm gonna do some more long studies I think then.

    Okay, so just a speedpaint without any ref. I based the colours vaguely on some mental notes I took while waiting at the bus stop (but I forgot most of it because there was like 5 hours between painting it and when I was taking the mental notes).

    I really hated this piece but then got my girlfriend to do some heavy critiques and now I am sort of actually pleased with it. Sort of. I don't really know haha.

    I think I will start working soon on a portfolio to get some commissions now that I have finished with my portfolio to get into art school.

    hey man
    think of using either the lasso tool or a really sharp brush or unsharp edges filter to bring out some extra sharp edges (when working with photoshop everything tends to get a bit soft)
    that portrait sketch is looking good
    and yeah I just sent a PM to Jason (happy now )

    I really love the composition on this piece. The horizontal thirds just gives it great weight and, combined with the really energetic marks, keeps the eye moving around. I think the color is really fun, too, murky but still warm.

    The problem I'm having in viewing this piece is establishing why I'm viewing it. I feel like there needs to be some sort of investigation or argument. It's not a study, so the goal isn't to represent from observation, but its not entirely imaginative either, so there's not really a feeling of exploring an idea. I feel like if you're going to flush it out, it may help to think about emphasizing the most important parts by rendering them more clearly, or otherwise adding some sort of point of view about this space.

    I really am not sure that I know how you feel about it other than its quiet and pretty, but I feel like the space has a lot of potential as a story-ground and as a really engaging piece. Give us something in the image to struggle with and think about, maybe? Like is the building more important than nature? Are we admiring man's skill? Are the plants more important? Has the snow taken over EVERYTHING? How do you feel about this space?

    I feel like those are questions I've found helpful in viewing and working on landscape, so hopefully they can help you too. Beautiful work though. I really admire your work!

    some lovely work in your sketchbook and a good mix of subjects and styles. Now all you have to do is keep it up for another 16 pages

    hunchback: Already sent you a PM.

    Ryan: Thanks, yeah I should haha! I like that one a lot though...

    xinranliu: Thanks! I just did a study using the lasso tool, then didn't use it in my speedpaint--d'oh! And yeah I also PM'ed Randis about it, but haven't heard back yet.

    autumn: Thanks! I really wasn't thinking of ANY of that. It was a quick speedpaint, but those are great things to be aware of for more final paintings.

    Dennis: Haha, you gotta go on MSN more...I'm always there (of course the six hours difference probably doesn't help).

    Pixelherder: Thank you! I will keep updating until...forever.

    Alright, so this isn't the greatest of updates. I have some life drawings to photograph too...but until then here are some crappy things.

    First, a 45 minute studydome I did with Bapsi.

    Next, a quick shitty sketch for COW that I won't finish.

    Then a WIP photostudy that I will bring to a high level of finish hopefully.

    And lastly, a WIP for a poster for my school's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. I've never read the play, and don't really know what it is about. I was told to draw a whimsical and magic forest with fairies though...so yeah. Probably nothing like the play haha. But I have to do this for volunteer hours in order to graduate high school.

    Friggin epic way to fill your volunteer hours. You definitely know how to make a picture look good.

    That cow is sweet, a really great sense of the light emanating from that thing. I can definitely tell that that nude photostudy is headed somewhere spectacular too.

    Damn dude, just keep it up!

    Bapsi: Thanks! The Asaro head helped a lot.

    Ryan: Thanks! Sorry I pussied out though haha. Didn't like the design at all. One day I'll actually compete in a weekly.

    tronrobot: Thanks!

    eekolite: Thank you! And yeah man, glad I can actually get volunteer hours for art. Got pretty lucky with it.

    Lain: Thanks...of course I am procrastinating as much on a professional portfolio as I did on the one for art school. We'll see how long it takes me to get around to it. Also, good luck on your transition. Each video your voice gets better!

    Matty: Thanks man!

    Adam: Thanks!

    Thanks for all the support! It really motivates me. Anyhow, finally on my March Break. I want to try and do a ton of art now, but have to help my mom prepare the house for selling next weekend, which may mean doing housework instead of art.

    I think I will wait to update until the end of the week and see how much art I can do in that time. Hopefully I will have a nice art dump to show.

    For now, I finally got around to photographing the last two week's worth of life drawings (the good gestures in there are copies after Kevin Wueste, everything else is from life). Also, the finished poster and a couple quick colour studies from photos.

    Hey Andrew great updates. The life drawings are looking good and you've got some nice gestures and feeling of form to them. I like your poster as well and the digital paintings also look good. Good luck with helping your Mum and cleaning.

    Holy crap man, this stuff is getting to a whole nother level. Your life drawings are graceful and deliberate, your value is rich and textured and your digital brushwork is maybe the most improved thing in the whole batch (to my eyes). It's super silky and really starting to describe the textures and edges in a painterly way.

    Most major thing I see is the feet/legs/foreshortening in this one feel a bit off/small, kind of like they're a bit squished in there because there's no more paper down low. But really, it's tough to make every life drawing perfect and you got pretty damn close.

    I may have to ask for some advice sometime. Keep it up, dude, you're getting there!

    The colour studies in post#322 from photos are looking really good. The colours are excellent, particularly in the 2nd wip.
    Keep up the excellent work bro!!
