    Art Dump #2

    These ones are old and from Loomis. I wish I didn't have to go to school, that way I could learn more.

    I apologize for any eye-burning that may occur from gazing at my crappy art for too long -.-

    Right, i'm going to get on with some Bridgman !

    Wow! A really great start! And look at all those studies!!! It also great to see so much done in traditional mediums. If I were to suggest 1 thing, it would be to do some more drawing from life. Draw your cat, arms, calculators...whatever. You can always learn something from what is around you. Ah, I'm blathering on... keep it up mate.

    I'm a bit of a failure when it comes to anything original... Thanks for the kind words, once I get a scanner hopefully you'll be able to see my stuff and give me some crits.

    Goodnight !

    Nice work Loki, I like your attitude! Screw what the teachers say, just ignore them, don't let them put stupid ideas in your head Seems like you have that under control anyway hehe.

    Keep up this pace and you'll be awesome in no time! Looks like you're doing all the right stuff!

    Update

    Not much today (Well, yesterday), started some Vilppu and I love it, it'll help me make sense of construction I think. Need to find a good book on artistic perspective, I have one but I think it's very technical and pertaining to architechture... I think Loomis recommends one in Fun With a Pencil.

    Seriously, dude, you're my latest inspiration here and I've subscribed to this thread.

    I'm in the final year of GCSE's in England, and I have to say, the art education at this level is horrific. If very occasionally the teacher (Who is actually a language teacher...) teaches us something, it will be irrelevant, based on false information (She thinks that paint is additive mixing lol...) and usually involves us copying some contemporary twats style. I've been doing lots of self study, reading anything I can get my hands on (I recently found Bridgman's Complete Drawing from Life in some ratty old bookstore )
    Same here. Come to think of it, years back when I took my GCSE O' Levels (ours was the Singapore version), we were taught crap.
    The first few weeks or so (2 lesson per week, each lasting 2 hours), we went straight into drawing apples and oranges, and straight after that, we learned watercolor painting, all in a time span of 2 months or so. After that, we proceeded to doing craft work for the rest of the 2 years.

    It's good to see you're learning this all on your own. In particular, those anatomy studies look very well done.

    Keep up the good work and spirit, dude. I'm rooting for you!

    OMG, thank you so much ! I'm so glad that you like what I've done

    I won't be learning on my own anymore, I've applied to MindCandyMan's on-line atelier (www.classicalartonline.com) to learn to fundamentals of seeing from life, so I'm going to supplement those studies with my own on construction and imagination so that in 2-3 years I'll be ready to go to one of the Art Department POD's. Right now I'm interested in conceptual art but I'm dubious about job security.

    Ga ah, I've been such a lazy bastard the last few days, been doing a website for ICT coursework and my Young Enterprise project. But anyway, no excuses, I'm going to do at least 3 facial anatomy studies today and then some reffed drawings.

    Thanks Xeon, that's got me motivated again ! I'm pumped for Jon's atelier Although he's full so i'll be studying with his new full time instructor -.-

    Seeya !

    I have a good feeling about you, I'm also subscribing
    My parents also think that of Art in general, its quite depressing but I guess its all the reason to get up and prove them all wrong.
    Pretty impressive that you've got an A* for Portraiture, I got an B altogether combined along with my 2nd year's project, different from you probably because of a different exam board, and your so right about the art education in England at GCSE level.

    Keep rocking dude, never give up.

    Thanks Exon-Ion ! We're on Edexcel and it's 97% for an A*, so it's undoubtedly the hardest subject (I generally get A*'s in everything). I'm strapped for time, have loads of corusework deadlines atm, but i'll get some stuff up after I start at MindCandyMan's Altelier, which I am psyched for !! And I'm reading Alla Prima, which is damn interesting and inspiring.

    Seeya ! (I'll check out your SB when I get back from dogwalking ^_^)

    Hey man! Great anatomy studies and gestures. We're about the same age (I turned 17 a couple months ago). Sorry about your art education situation but MCM's atelier will hopefully supplement for a lot of things and give you the education you need. But you can learn just as much if not more so from teaching yourself. Don't worry so much, you have your entire life ahead of you!

    Don't listen to your parents! Well, you still should...but not TOO much

    @Eddieee & schumak - Thanks !

    Here's my still life that I did for my GCSE final. Crappy photo courtesy of iPhone 3G. Oils on an A3 canvas. About 9 hours (Ain't that pathetic -.-).

    I'll start posting once my exams are over on June 18th. Seeya !

    You've got some serious determination. That's great. I see progress. Slow but sure. Keep at it but don't forget to have fun, too. Try to balance out your studies with sketches from imagination or use reference as a theme or idea only. Great way to keep things fun and also to understand how much you've absorbed from your studies.

    thanks for looking in my sketchbook dude!
    haha weird im the same age as you at school and i do young enterprise as well lol. biggest waste of time ever.

    in terms of the anatomy and stuff, your proportions and perspective have been steadily improving since page 1 so i'd focus on line quality for the moment.

    Bending your arm at the elbow and shoulder to draw rather than using the wrist allows you to get much free-er (is that a word??) lines, as the line is not restricted by the reach of your wrsit. Also, don't purposefully use lots of strokes of the pen for a line when one would do.

    keep it up man, i'll definitely come back here to se how you're doing!

    p.s. are you in the uk? i figure you'll be thinking about art foundation soon; i'm going to all the open days this october x

    @Raffix - Hey, thanks for dropping in. Yeah i'm trying to reign in my chickscratch strokes, i'm probably going to do some master copys to train that aspect.
    I am in the UK, Surrey to be specific, but I'm going to college to study art, maths, physics and english literature. I'm hoping to get a good enough portfolio to go to The Art Department in 2 years time after my A Levels, but I guess it can't hurt to look into foundation. The only problem is my parents, I guess i'm going to have to have a showdown with my dad eventually .
    I think that studying with Johnathan Hardesty might be a better alternative, so I can do that and my A Levels at the same time. I've talked to him and an hour on every schoolday is ample to progress as long as I do lots of work when I have spare time.
    I'm rambling. Seeya !

    Hello there, thanks for stopping round my sketchbook.
    I love the sheer amount of studies you've done, you show an intimate knowledge of individual aspects of anatomy, like features of the face (I loved the eyes) and that of the body, now I definently know what you mean by how studies can pay off.
    Keep up the good work lad, it's inspiring.

    Epic 61 image art dump !

    To hell with the CA uploader ! It's horrific for batch uploading. I promise to use it for minor updates for the longevity of my images, but for the love of god I cannot be bothered to use the thing for 10+ images.

    Oooh, two pages !
