J.D. Kutzer is a graphite addict (nudity)
Hello CA, as you may notice i joined this remarkable .org awhile ago, only to muster up enough courage to start posting this very evening. This website has inspired a lot of hard work and I've decided to start working even harder, thus i begin the commitment to regular updates of my studies and attempts to apply them. It goes without saying that crits are welcome and very much appreciated.
unfortunately i don't have access to a good scanner so i used my camera, sorry for the crappy quality
Some of my older stuff (late '09)
This ones from a long time ago the summer of '08, but i found it again and i like it
and here's some more recent stuff
alright one more for now

some more background. I haven't been painting for more than a semester (because i was afraid of it until some one taught me) and i know jack shit about digital painting (although i'm gonna start doing regular studies tomorrow morning). when i was a kid of 8 years i took art classes at the Art Association of Harrisburg in Harrisburg, PA. I was moved into high school level classes after one course, however me and my ADHD personality found video games and T.V more agreeable than art and alas i didn't get back into it until age 21 (not a day goes by where i don't think, "FUCK ME!) but that's in the past and i should move on!) So now i find myself obsessed making amends for easily the biggest mistake of my life. No excuses, no half assing, no delusions of grandeur, an exodus from a paradigm of mediocrity and incompetence.
as i promised some paintings. an N.C Wyeth study and the second acrylic i've ever done and some watercolor photo studies (3 out of 8 of my first attempt at the media) shitty photo quality again so sorry about that again.
all of these are 4x7 inches

eeesh that photo shop didn't go so well so i'm gonna keep it to myself....
so here's some multi limbs i've been doing over the past couple of days (in my "spare" time). the idea was inspired by janaschi, as well as a random sketch of a girl reading a book, and lastly a quick (less than 10 minutes) sketch of anime-ish faces after looking at leJeanx3's SB. i got my hands on a scanner, but i couldn't get it to work (damn my life) so this will be the last time i apologize for poor photo quality.
i just realized i drew the nose of the girl on the right as if it were almost straight on, whereas it should be 3/4 like the rest of her face

some stuff from Crimson Daggers, and a a couple crappy cross contour drawings of torsos. I'm definitely going to do more of these, slower, more carefully, in other words better. I've been busy with school stuff, one project i restarted and i need to bust my butt to get it on schedule, and a painting due on friday morning. i'd like to spend more time drawing full figure stuff w/out reference, maybe i'll squeeze in a multi limb thing or something tomorrow. Who knows, thanks for looking.

Awesome awesome awesome stuff in here, and especially the graphite studies.
To put in a thumbnail for your thread you edit you first post.
Then you use the "attachment manager" and upload the file you want. You can do this for all of your post as it may seem easier than using an alternate image hosting site. The thumbnail will only count for your first post though.
Hopefully i explained that okay.
Keep up the good work!

I love the figures and paints man, they look great. And cheers for the comment on my SB. I never really did 3d/Photoshop in college much. Mostly learned through video tutorials. If you can learn somewhere decent though, give it a go. It's something I'd love to do meself. It'd go really well with illustration too I'd say

great work in here!!
Are those all done with graphite or also with a normal pencil?
And how did you do those watercolourpaintings?
well, keep doing more!

sketchii-mop: thanks for telling how to put up the thumbnail (now i just need to make a good one), and of course thanks for the kind words.
Gyzmotnik: thanks, I feel like that combination would be killer if i get really good at both.
Blizzard5291: thanks, i'm pretty confident that it was my drawing ability that allowed me to pick it up quickly, but i'm still trying to master traditional media, and i imagine it'll take me some time.
gnilrE: looks can be deceiving, i've got a some more studying to do before my understanding of anatomy is "rock solid". Thanks for the kind words.
sarbro: the paintings are done with winsor & newton artist water color on 300lb cold press (i like hot press better but it's trickier) all with a kalinsky sable #8 brush (pretty pricey but a great water color brush). And yes all those drawings are done in graphite 2H, H, HB and HB mechanical, i'd like to use charcoal again, but i think i will wait until i have time to breath (i should be painting right now) and i think by "normal" pencil you mean a #2 which is also an HB, and no i try to use top quality media only, the graphite isn't as good in a writing pencil. Oh yes and thank you
DeeStar: thank you. I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so my pencil work drives me crazy, but i love it and i love getting better and broader in style. I hope my paintings and digital work will one day surpass my graphite
OKAY soooo, i have a LOT of work to do, but i really wanted to draw today and here's what i did. first one is from imagination and the second was a quick study. Also a still life for CD that didn't got so well...
