    A quick lame generic pirate for Talk Like A Pirate Day...and nine selfportraits. They were a strain to finish. Got bored after about six and was running out of interesting faces that I could hold.

    qlotzan: Thanks. I think anatomy is really important to learn. Some people find it a bit boring to study, but I enjoy it a fair bit. Either way, it is really important to sit down and get through it.

    So I got through round 1 of the Last Teen Standing, and now am starting round 2...the topic I'm going with is Prehistoric Meets Future. Went with a retro sorta style in this early sketch:

    qlotzan: Thanks--I'll post it up soon. I am partway through a greyscale painting of it now. Afterwards I may or may not add colour.

    All I have to show now are a rather dull oil plein air painting I did last Saturday (was waiting for it to dry before photographing) and some sketches I did in the National Gallery for a school assignment. I have lifedrawings and stuff, but they didn't photograph well so I have to retake them on a better day.

    Qlotzan: Thanks for stopping by again!

    Finished up with the Last Teen Standing entry. I found it real tough although am pretty pleased with the end result. The colour was killing me, but I think I found a nice balance between warms and cools, red-oranges and blues.

    Nerferinn: Thanks.

    Alrighty. Two really crappy pages of pencils from imagination, then some ballpoint sketches. Interestingly they each got progressively worse as I went through them. The first is after Frazetta (he is so amazing), two after Loomis (really screwed them up), and one from imagination (where I failed to apply what I had learned from the other studies). Yup.

    Not sure how this will turn out on other screens (hope it isnít just a black rectangle), but on mine it is nice and dark but there is still a lot of detail visible. I think it is the most restricted value range I have ever painted with, because the only light source was the light from my monitor. I am fairly pleased with it and the likeness considering that A) it took one hour, and B) I didnít do a line drawing underneath, rather just painted in flat values starting with big shapes and moving to small ones as I saw them.

    lolbbq: Glad you like it. The subtlety was really tough to see, but I am happy with how it turned out.

    ryanoir: Thanks, working with a pen is really tough, but makes you think a lot and can get some really nice results. As for the self-portrait, I may very well do more dark ones. There is something both fun and satisfying about experimenting with self-portraits.

    Hokay, a bunch of stuff here. The life drawings are 20-30 minutes each, the still-lifes range from 1.25-4 hours, and then a Frazetta copy and some hands thrown in for good measure. While I have more that can be put up I probably won't as it is pretty rubbish, and I think that this should be good for now.

    Calling this one finished. I've been working on and off it for several days now, and am pretty sick of it. It was done for a school project, and is a self-portrait, although the likeness is off a bit. I took a photo of myself which I used for maybe ten minutes to get the pose a bit better, then painted the rest from my imagination (except the face, in which a mirror was used).

    ryanoir: Thanks man. Life drawing is my favourite.

    I finally got a sketchpad of toned paper. I have been looking for one forever, but for some reason never was able to find it in Ottawa. My dad just came back from Germany and he found it there so I was excited to break it in.

    To start off here is a bleh self-portrait. I liked it when I first finished it, but now looking at it the features are misplaced and the likeness is off. It doesn't help that the scan makes it look super textured (looks WAY better in real life). Anyways, about 2.5 hours.

    Went to lifedrawing tonight, so here are the results. Starting off with some 90 second gestures that I actually don't hate too too much, and then a 20 minute and the rest 30's. Last two are ballpoint pen sketches (so hard to do).

    ryanoir: Thanks, I'm loving the toned paper too. And are 20's and 30's standing not normal?

    Sarc: Thank you, it's really cool to know other people from there are on CA.

    cgaddict: Thanks you sir. I still have a long way to go.

    Anatomy and lifedrawing. The anatomy is after Bammes; I've never studied him before but it seems really really good. I like how he breaks things down.

    The lifedrawing was done at this group I have never been to before, and the poses were much quicker than what I was used to, but anyways it was fun. They were done in coloured pencil and ballpoint pen, and the poses were 1 mins, 5's, 10's, and one 15 and one 20.

    Congratulations to you also
    You have a nice sketchbook.
    I really like your pencil stuff, but some of your digitals look a bit washed out (if that's a correct word). I think you should try to experiment more with sharp vs soft edges.

    ryanoir: Thanks.

    Wr00m: Thank you.

    cgaddict: Yeah, always studying anatomy. It helps boatloads with figurative stuff.

    Okay I have seriously been lazy in updating. So here is a bunch of crap, mostly from life, but some Bammes and a couple imagination buried in there. Oh, and I still need to photograph three oil paintings.
