    Update: 19-Oct-14! John Matrix and the Bazasrs Vs Rosebuds XI.

    Hello CA.Org
    I've been drawing with the aim of having a career in art for about six years, it started with my brothers and I wanting to make games and 3D (something we're still pursuing) and somehow we decided we needed to be good at 2d (how long could that take ).
    So here I am roughly six years (probably more like four years. 2012 update) on and have finally taken the (huge) step to start a sketchbook, as I feel I need a bit of a boost and thought this is a step in the right direction. Crits more than welcome.

    This is a selection of sketches from the last month and is from life, photos and imagination

    Enjoy your Doom!

    Just want to keep updating this thing (will have to start promoting myself so I can get some comments)

    First a painting trying out Sam Nielson process

    Then a grey scale painting
    Name:  Monster-Painting.jpg
Views: 3455
Size:  33.0 KB

    And I've decided to get my butt in gear by going through Michael Hamptons Figure Drawing book (one of many figure books I've started and never fully gone through), by doing the lesson and then doing/applying it to photos/life.

    I've also decided to try (again started never finish) learn the cannons of the head/face

    Greetings, long time no update!.
    I've signed up for TAD part time in the compositions and colour theory.
    So I'm going to try and keep a more regular account of my progress.

    So our first assessment was to create compositions based on emotions
    Here's the sketches I did for mine, which were strength, happy, loneliness and calm
    And skulls from life of course

    Very nice drawings! Very fresh. Keep it up...if you can incorporate the freshness of the pencil drawings into the final pieces you're well on your way!

    Phwoaar, so much stuff! You've really studied a wide range of things here.

    I'd like to see what you're really capable of though, perhaps flesh out a detailed drawing from life?

    Very impressive stuff so far though

    anitakunz: Thanks for the post. As for getting the freshness of the pencils in other mediums, it is something I'll have to work on because the pencil "is" my tool and anything else I am a little stricter with, more practice!
    Sulphur: I was doing still lives but have switched to master copies for a little while. Will post once finished.

    I'm going to try updating once a week.
    So here's some recent sketchbook stuff and an attempt at Arne's process, only the first two steps, will try to render it tomorrow.
    Plus the first of 52 Cards / weeks (which ever comes first!) of mini illustrations. This one is done from a photo.

    Love the pole vaulter in the fourth one, lots of action.

    Additionally, I'm going to have nightmares for a week because of that monstrosity on your desk, thanks.

    Just a small update this time, as I'm spending most of my time working on a piece that hopefully, I won't be able to show you until late July (it's for the Megaman tribute book ).
