Hey Drew great to see how much progress you are making. I really enjoy looking at these types of classical studies. My favorite though is the first tree landscape painting. Well done all round though and I look forward to seeing more.
Hey man, good work on the long pose figure! You might want to post bigger sized images instead of clickable thumbnails, most people are pretty lazy browsing through sketchbooks. Hopefully see you around malls sometime soon!
Hey! Nice work I am also 17, I saw that you applied to GSA so am I, ECA as well but GSA is so much better. I hope we both get in, keep me updated on how it goes for you. I'll be uploading my portfolio to them soon
Keep up the studying, you're getting there. I'd love to see more works from your imagination, where you implement the observations you do in real life, utilizing the knowledge you have gained. This is challenging and it forces you to think more about what you're drawing and painting in real life. Observe the model/still life, analyze it, Don't just copy it. You might be able to create a pretty picture by copying, but it is far more important to gain knowledge of how we perceive life, so that you can implement that in your own work.
Marian - Thank you ! Heh people always prefer the quickest ones - I guess they have that 'fresh look' that is so hard to retain as a painting progresses.
tehmeh - Cheers Thanks for the tip, thankfully it was a quick number replacement in the url ! Seeyou after new years at life drawing !
Raffix -Thanks, seeya up at LARA after the new year !
Nibras - Awesome ! Heh, I prefer ECA personally for their Illustration course. Rushing to get those mini-portflio's done ahhh ! Hopefully I'll see you around, good luck !
Roope - Thanks, I definitely agree. I need to implement my studies directly after into imagination work to get the most out of them. And heh yeah it's way to easy to zone out and just copy the visual field. I'm doing more imagined compositions now and for the next half a year for college work and my portfolio's for uni (and cos they're damned fun !).
Quick life drawing at LARA
Life drawing (Badly edited)
Self portrait in oils, used restricted Zorn pallete
That self portrait has a very good likeness and a big step up from the last ones for that, good show.
hard to tell if that is clouds or mountains in the background of the enviro, but biggest problem is scale. looks like the lake is 3m long and that door a letterbox at the moment - might want to bring in some common objects like trees in the back and where the guy stands, so we can see the depth difference better
