    I missed the deadline by an hour, but it's ok. I would have refined him a bit more, especially the lower half of his body.

    I didn't do much today. Did some figure drawings which were utter shite considering I haven't done them in quite a long while <- an understatement. So I started a new study, doing my best to match the colors on my own.

    Some quick figure sketches from tonight. I'm so burnt-out on doing portraits. Time for something new.
    It was 80F yesterday and snowing today. I hate spring.

    Sketch hard or die trying! (Update 4/14/10)

    Pfloyd: Thanks so much!

    I've a lot more work can be found at http://www.thenecco.deviantart.com

    I don't have anything to post right now, mostly been finishing my last 2 pieces for AP Portfolio and starting a miniconcentration for my Commercial Arts II class, however, I do have news!

    I recieved a letter today from Cleveland Institute of Art and they said I've been awarded a $60,000 scholarship.

    It isn't my first choice school, considering I wish to move to Spain and study there, I think I will ask them if they can postpone my decision for a year.

    Long time no see.

    I haven't posted here in a while, so I decided I'll update this a bit.

    Well, the Orange/green one is printmaking, the final product of the sketch in the previous post. It didn't come out as well as I wanted, but it was way too many layers to cope with (linocut)

    Thanks Koh!

    I'm recently starting to draw again, so while it's feeling uncomfortable, just working through it and playing around. Here's a quick sketch of today. A maid for thanksgiving?

    Also, part of an altered book (collage pages) I made that I like. But it has a Sculpey 'face' and I think my sealant was old... it's still tacky 5 months later. Anyway just fun stuff. The texture is made from Elmer's white glue, dries clear

    Thanks Gthm/death! I like to try many different things

    I'll upload more of different mediums.

    Here's a quick doodle from today using Painter X, haven't used the program in ages.

    The 2nd is one of my favourite pieces, the sketch and the after. I wish I had a better picture, though. (String + Acrylic on Cardboard) It was very hard to place all that string correctly! Was fun though.

    In case anyone is wondering why a few of them have contoured lines is because I focused my portfolio on it in AP portfolio senior year.

    Hey all!

    Small sketch of today (I haven't started anything 'major' lately)

    Left imagination. Right referenced of a Bouguereau painting, but made the girl older looking

    Tomorrow I plan to do some hands and possibly posemaniacs

    Lol! Disastrous!

    Never really used Painter, so I decided it's worth a shot to improve at.

    Posemaniacs is much easier in traditional mediums in my opinion.

    Thanks NickyBeats!

    I didn't like how in yesterday's post that I smoothed some areas out, I felt like it took away some character with the brushstrokes, so I tried again today, this time left areas hard.

    Actually, should have put thicker strokes in the hair and the hand is kind of a blob. lol

    Thoughts in many forms

    It's been such a long time, guys. It doesn't even feel like it.

    Some of the pics are a little big (Spare me it's 4am )

    I've been busy studying spanish for university entrance exams (I passed!) and I am finally starting my degree! It's been a very hard time in my life both with stress and uncertainty so I'm glad that's over. My art has suffered a lot these past 2 years, but I guess what my dad said to me yesterday really hit home. "You can't let your talents waste away". Which is exactly what I've been doing - so... with no further adieu. It's time to start a new chapter in my art life. No more sitting and waiting for things to change. Now I have no reason to be all sad, grumpy and overwhelmed all the time.

    First I will post a small update here of a few works that have been... born... since the last update - ones that I particularly like anyway, since there is too much to post here.

    For the last picture, I plan on making some paintings with the pictures I took there (it's paradise, really) Las Islas Cíes

    Tomorrow I'll be back with new stuff

    It's been ages

    It's been ages since I last posted here. I'm really, and I mean really, bad at keeping up with things. Need to fix that~

    I've since started studying fine arts in Universidade de Vigo in Pontevedra, Spain. The first year is over in a few weeks.

    Here's a small update, there's really too much to pile into 1 post - so here is a highlight - if you will - of some progress.

    As always, I would love to receive any critiques you may have. I haven't been doing the same type of work as I used to really.

    I will be back, I promise

    The landscapes are acrylic on a 'transparent' background, but I placed them on top of a white paper for photographing purposes
    all from life besides the 2 distorted ones

    Got a little carried away with color studies / themed of the seasons

    progression of the 'figures' painting, it's 'finished' now (meaning I'm not happy with it) but I havent had the chance to photograph it
    also first step to another small painting
    and a still life (didn't get to finish it, this was ~30 mins in)
    Some images aren't uploading, don't know why. So will try again when the site is done with the whole transition

    Updated 12 April / OE's Sketchbook

    I haven't painted digitally in at least a year...

    so, have to 'start over' again Some quick drawings - The first one has way too high contrast, then it improved slightly (last one isn't finished, but I will probably restart it in a different way anyway)

    Went to the Escola de Canteiros de Pontevedra today as a little field trip. It's like a sculpture/mason school (if you google it you can see a little bit of what they do). A lot of it is sculptures based off of other works of art, or restoration or reproduction of other sculptures. It was cool to see students working on different things like crests for buildings, arches, different ornamental pieces for architecture, cruceiros, cabazos, actual buildings, and to see the process. I thought the most useful thing to see was how they build the very large sculptures in parts, like a puzzle piece that fits together for the finished sculpture (so it can be transported mostly)

    I wouldn't be able to do a 5 year program there without being killed (I'm far too clumsy for such a dangerous areas with giant lifts and stuff haha)

    - study for color and material: taking a model study (posted it earlier) and placing them in a landscape
    - painting on fabric (it was very difficult actually...)
