    a picture of my friend.

    1. I wanted to work on something that involved fabric. Drawing wrinkles and stuff.

    2. A couple ads from Sports Illustrated

    3. Gina Carano, I don't know, I wanted to try a new technique, with mostly drawing straight lines. I didn't invest much time into it. Which is sad because she is hotness. Sports Illustrated.

    4. The next three are from from my Bridgman book. I have quite a few of these, but most of them sucked to much to show. So here are the best of those.

    7. I don't remember her name, but she was in also in a Sports Illustrated.

    Really fast scribbles, Bridgman, and Walmart parking lot.

    1. Part of a fast sketch, while I was waiting on my roommate to get out of work.

    2. Same, but different car, and some sketches of different parts of my face through the rear view mirror.

    3. Bridgman studies. I need a lot of work on those. Gotta buckle down on that.

    4. This is still a wip. It has been really tricky for me, but it seems to be coming together.

    5. The same page as the first, but more of it.

    Sorry some are hard to see. The light isn't the greatest for my camera. let me know if you have any suggestions for that.

    Some more!

    1. Referenced from a photo. wip

    2. More Walmart parking lot sketching, including a self portrait using my rear view mirror. I didn't have a lot of time for detail. I was just trying to do what I could as fast as I could.

    Keevy, I don't beat around the bush so I'll be on point.

    Great studies and personal drawings.
    Drawing is hard, learning to become brings a lot of frustration and grey hairs but if you keep working hard, develop a discipline and patience you WILL get good at it, that is my promise to you.

    Embrace failure and learn from your mistakes.

    Draw from life. Learn to see angles and values of light and learn to constantly compare.

    Try to find some kind of method to learn by. When you know what to do then it's all about doing it with concentration. There are ton of great books which have a system in place. To name one is "Figure Drawing designing and invention" by Michael Hampton.

    Learn to love frustration and the plateau. The discoveries come in spurts and die fast. The more you learn the more enjoyable it becomes.

    Try drawing longer lines. It will take time but it will improve your work.

    Learn the basic foundations which are at times boring and remember that a house built on strong foundation will sustain an earthquake.

    Learn anatomy by copying Bridgman, learn the muscles and bones from an anatomy book and learn the mechanics of the body. Learn perspective and form. Learn to see values.

    Do your own research and remember, what worked for me doesn't necessarily mean that it works for you. Find your way and be honest.

    Hard work pays off.

    All the best!

    I bought my little hand held mirror today, for self portraits. Its sad how brutally honest a self portrait can be. well if I do any better tomorrow, ill post my ugly mug up.

    bleh

    been trying to work on self portraits. By its self is fun, but mix it with quitting cigarettes... it becomes stressful.

    Its not the greatest stuff. but better then I expected.

    I've been studying some Bridgman tonight.

    my friend a little touched up, I don't know how I feel about it. and some mirror stuff. I'm getting more comfortable with the self portraits, but they: do show how F*$% up my face is.

    completely out of my element.

    Sorry for the delay, I tried to post these up last night, but I didn't get a chance to because of the super bowl.

    I'm trying to change up the way I'm drawing, i.e. using longer strokes. (As suggested by Jussi Tarvainen) So I have been focusing more on accuracy, and my lines, Hence the limited/no shading.

    Also... I started the 30 second gesture drawings on http://posemaniacs.com/ for the first time EVER. So... yeah, be kind as far as that goes, I know they're not that great. Ill be doing them everyday as warm ups before I start drawing, I think that will help me out.

    Also, The first picture is still a wip
    Thank you.

    Im done talking now.

    not much to show right now. Im still working on that portrait, and I'm having a terrible time with the eyes. So, Im sitting down and busting out some eye studies.

    I did my gestures to, but your not going to see those.
