    naidy thank you very much for the encouragement. You are very sweet. (also, that felt weird - calling someone older 'sweet'. hmm)
    I just found out today that our Singapore A-levels and your A-levels are rather different. Wikipedia says Singapore A-levels are ridiculously difficult (well more difficult than international standards anyway) for one thing. And that you have some AS/A2 thingy where your A-levels are split up into two exams.
    teapo - ok, thanks for the book reference!


    so, some pics from GP class.

    also, I just discovered this today: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcsRl_LIJHA (Argerich plays Scarlatti, Sonata K. 141)

    blows my mind. If I tried playing at even half of that speed (see 00:24) I think I'd just get a million bruises on my fingers. Damage the nail matrix or something.

    You are too young and pretty much experienced with your art.
    That combination is such a great thing. It is bad news that
    your teacher is not letting you to post some things. That will
    reduce most of your art amount here on conceptart. However, we will
    be glad to see some other studies, you just keep on working hard.
    I guess that I saw that you are doing all kind of studies, going through
    the few pages of your sketchbook, all I can suggest is for you to do
    more of them. Also do not forget about anatomy studies.
    #137, very nice referenced painting. Do not worry, your imaginaries will
    not go bad because you do a few referenced ones. You just mix them up
    nicely, and there will be no problem. Will try to follow your work from now on,
    that is if you will follow mine.
    Cheerz.

    All these talented teenagers on this site make me envious. If only I could draw as well at their age!

    Hey, you're totally welcome mate. And I know what you mean. I have a terrible habit of addressing everyone as 'lad/lass' if I say it to the wrong people, they get really annoyed xD

    And I had no idea about how our A levels differed! I feel sorry for you, but you're a hard worker so I'm sure you'll do well. Wish you the best of luck.

    Your knowledge of form and colouring is really advancing well. I'd like to see some more paintings done in daylight, and possibly a few landscapes.

    Cool stuff!

    Plissken, Trex thank you both.
    Naidy it's not fair graaaaargh
    Ultarant yes, I have been meaning to try doing some landscape/environment pics. Will shift that to the top of my to-draw list.

    ===
    so I just tried playing one note repeatedly at high speed (see previous post) and the key couldn't even come up fast enough for me to do it how does Argerich do it!
    ===

    today's pics are from a) choir - something funny going on with my throat for two weeks now, can't hit high notes properly and all that, so I took a break today and didn't sing - and b) two hour block of announcements, updates on school construction work etc. (b) is really not much though and I didn't want to put it here at first. But this is supposed to be a 'sketchbook' so oh well. I'm quite happy with today's updates. I feel like I accomplished something, somehow. Like I broke through some barrier of epic suck for female faces. Now have to repeat that for everything else. The full sheet of paper has more drawings; only about half are shown here.

    ===

    lastly...anyone good with C/C++ :

    I often use the float datatype to handle tasks that involve decimals e.g. computing money. So I declare float money = 100.89; or something like that. My compiler tells me that this is actually a truncation from 'double' to 'float', and I understand why this is so. Would using double to handle decimals be better (lower severity in truncation, maybe?) - and if so, why does float even exist? Why not just use double all the time? Is it to save on memory space?

    beth thank you
    eyestrain I'm pretty sure you meant that for Marlee instead...
    plissken here it is!

    ===

    banged around on the piano today, taking a little rest from a week of school. I kind of regret not going on to take my diploma...it would give me pressure to practice properly.

    ===

    I wish CA had a mass uploader not that I'm particularly prolific or anything but it would be nice. the categories make it a pain mostly.

    1-4: some people from http://www.pixelovely.com/tools/gesture.html - I like this much better than posemaniacs.

    5: I promised enviro studies SO HERE THEY ARE (took quite a long time on each of them compared to the figure ones) they're my first tries, pretty much, so advice and crits always appreciated

    6: I have this friend. Anything she draws looks like rocks (or at least Cubist). She likes drawing hard edges and planes. While I can't draw rocks at all and like soft squishy female bodies...

    Good so far but on the last pic the brownish water looks a bit like its flowing down like a waterfall instead of lying flat, I don't know if that was what you wanted though. Anyways, keep it up.

    Your school sounds kind of scary...but that little workspace looks really nice/cute. I see a lot of good things going on here. Keep up the life drawing and all that. And I agree, I like doing gestures from photos much more than posemaniacs.

    For your newest digipaints, try to start thinking more about edges if you're not already. Elwell's post is a great place to start.

    Keep it up!

    Well, thank you.
    You are right this pixelovely is much better than posemaniacs,
    and you did those gestures great.
    Plus you are starting to rock these environments real nicely.
    Way to go.
