    Very nice sketchbook. You really do a ton of studies! I'd easily lose my patience doing that much. I love the colors in the pictures, especially of landscapes and human faces.

    More gestures and feet studies and I am calling it quits on the shoe painting! I'm at the point where I am just going circles on it and going nowhere.

    Love the still life studies. For a crit though, try to push your value range as they are very light right now. And watch your ellipses; your toilet paper's looking kinda wonky (like it's curving up on that back edge).

    Dierat--thanks for the crits! I knew the TP looked kind of lumpy and weird but wasn't quite sure why, so the picture really helps. I definitely have a lot trouble with values when I'm working digitally in color, so I'll try to think about it more consciously next time I do a still life. I think it'd be good if I could get to a middle ground between where mine look now, where they're too light, and the super high contrast pics you showed where everything's blown out.

    Today: Shooooess and photo study and quick env study.

    Went to Dr. Sketchy's in Tokyo last week. First time getting to do figure/gesture drawing from a real person in probably three years... I'm definitely pretty rusty, but it was so much more fun than drawing from photos.

    I'm surprised the colours turned out so similar since I did these at 2 different times and never looked at both at the same time.

    The quality and the meaning of your studies is improving,
    you have changed the pressure from sixtytwo to seventyfive
    instantly, leaving the windows steamy and the air full of moisture.
    I adore the environments and the feet studies. At dinner table
    you will not be neglected anymore. When the soup and
    the Bouillabaisse mon ami arrives, you will get the first serving.
    First you, then the others. That is the correct order.
    I knew it that you will get the suitable attention and
    respect under the sun. It was only a matter of time.

    There is a high energy in your self portraits, every time you
    do one, your evolution as an artist grows, and the distance from
    hell rises, cause no self respected devil will receive people to his
    kingdom with a few self portraits done. Sun is shining and everything
    is fine. You totally satisfied my needs with those green environments,
    cause green is good for the eyes and for the liver. Heavy drinkers
    used to be banned to the deep woods to cure their livers. They
    cured their livers but they was unfortunately eaten up by huge
    anacondas and lions. You are doing good, and it is a pleasure
    to be in contact, and to work together with you.

    7-day work week killed my energy.

    This has its problems, but it was good for me to get to work in a medium I actually enjoy and get away from the computer/studies for a change.

    but now time to make the most of my one day off! hopefully I'll be able to get a real update in. No one will know if I don't, but I'll hold myself to it...

    Drawings from Dr. Sketchy's!

    I am absolutely aware of all of the god awful anatomy and know exactly what's wrong with these, so please no comments about the crazy giant limbs and horrible proportions. I have a lot of trouble getting proportions down quickly when I only have one chance to do it and no opportunity to fix anything. I can do way better than this when I have time, but I just totally fail when I have to rush. Frankly these are embarrassing but I'm going to post them anyway since not every day can be a good art day, and failures are still attempts at improving.

    Wonderful my friend, those studies are very good,
    you just keep pumping the pressure, until there is no measure.

    this month I learned a valuable lesson about Japan--when the internet breaks here, IT will get around to fixing it when they feel like it, and no sooner... :| Which is why I have been absent from updating so long.

    Will start uploading things from this month a little bit at a time, but until I have time to battle with the single-file uploader, just one for now!

    kevin_ thank you for the encouragement!!

    I decided that this summer I want to master all the major muscles/memorize them all. Once I have them down, it will benefit me for life, so now is the time to buckle down. I'll try to keep the onslaught of boring muscle studies down to a few at a time...

    Started with the thigh. Using 4/5 different anatomy books + photos and other pictures from the internet. Started copying from books, then replicating again, then drew on the muscles over photos to try to see how they'd fit. These ones turned out really bad, but these were from my early studies, and my studies got a lot better after these. Still helped me in trying to figure things out, so not a waste of time!

    Drawings from the Tokyo Dr. Sketchy's. As always, well aware of what all the proportional issues are. Still can't get things right quickly enough for gesture drawing.
