    Tuesday's Sketchbook

    Hey everyone, thanks for dropping by! c8
    I made this Sketchbook to have a place to show my portfolio for Ringling since I was accepted to the GAD program for 2010, but I've actually been wanting to make one for awhile |D I'll post updates every once in awhile!

    Critiques and suggestions are greatly welcomed and appreciated!























    The one above and below are actually both over a year old ( Winter 2008 ) but everyone told me to put them into my portfolio lskdjf I felt REALLY embarrassed to put the Ram Skull one (above) in, because it was my first acrylic painting ever but people kept telling me to put it in and I'm a big pushover so haha |D










    ..And that's my portfolio for Ringling! I also applied to AAU, LCAD, and CalArts with pretty much the same portfolio give or take a few pieces. I got a $4,200 merit scholarship per year for LCAD. CalArts was the only one I didn't get into, but I expected that. I TOTALLY had to rush down to the last minute to get my portfolio in on time and meet the deadline for them p_p Oh well!

    Tell me what you guys think! I'd especially like crits on my figure drawings/gestures because I know some of them are pretty wonky haha |D

    Hey Tuesday well done on getting in to Ringling. Your paintings look good and I will watch your SB with interest as you continue with your studies.

    Nice job on getting that acceptance letter, you worked hard for it, I can see. I'm still waiting for my letter (acceptance or rejection!)

    Good figure work, keep at it! You'll have to at Ringling, lol

    First Ringling Arts Update

    It's been awhile! I've been at Ringling for a month and a half and haven't updated yet, so I thought I should Oh man, I'm already embarrassed by most of my old portfolio art |D

    These are gesture drawings from my first 4 Figure Drawing classes back in August/early September. All of them are 1 minute long sketches unless I put otherwise. They go from oldest at the top to most recent at the bottom.
    I was terrified of doing 30 second gestures at first because THEY'RE SO FRUSTRATINGLY FAST, but they became my favorite pretty quickly, and it seems like some of my best ones come from those.

    Sumi Brush Ink Gestures (1-3 minutes):

    I really don't like Sumi that much 8( Some people are just naturally so amazing at it, but I really don't like the feel to them 8\

    Contour Line Objects:


    Contour Line Still Life:


    More Contour Objects (Transforming*~*~*~):


    There'll be more people in the next post 8>

    Thanks for looking!

    I haven't updated in awhile, so I'll break things up into a few posts |D This stuff is from October.

    There's cafe drawings, some short gestures from my Figure Drawing class, and a self-portrait where we could only use white and black charcoal with no blending.

    Hey Tuesday I'm glad to see you doing so much drawing. Looks like you are doing well. I especially like this last self portrait in the black and white.

    Hey Tuesday nice update. Looks like you are doing well and really starting to capture the action and expression with your gestures. Love the expression on you self portrait, made me smile. Keep up the good work

    Spring Break Update

    Thanks again, Marian! Your comments are much appreciated

    I was hoping to get back a few more assignments from Color class, but we never got them back, oh well 8\ The first picture is from Traditional Animation; we were told we'd get to do an animal jump when we got back from spring break, and got our animals really early - I got a Toucan c8 I was so excited I sketched out a page of them the next day to figure out different ways of exaggerating them and what worked. The rest of the assignments are from Color and are PRETTY BORING, but I think this next quarter we'll get to do more environments 8>

    Hi! I don't think the colored ones are boring!! Absolutely like them! You're doing fine, also with figures and even more with charcoal!

    Wooow! You've made a lot of improvement in one year! Great!
    You look like you have a pretty good eye for detail but I would keep an eye out for some of the more subtle things as well like the overall shadow color and light source color.
    I hope that helps and keep it coming!

    Just wanted to say thanks for looking into my sketchbook. Anyway, your figure studies are looking good. Although I have no idea what your teachers want to you do with those color assignments, I would say the colors are ridiculously over saturated. And the perspective in that colored room seems kinda wonky.

    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook!

    Your figures are so lovely and I love how you capture the form of the figure. I'm also loving the toucans as well. Very fun sketches. Nice work all around. Keep it up!

    I love that page of birds too, haha
