    Ameysha - Thank you very much. Its very humbling to think that I inspire people when I still have so much to learn. Thanks for looking.

    thesecond - thanks yo!

    Elbensen - Thank you very much. Again, hard to believe that I inspire people when there is so much good art out there and I have so much more to do and so little time. Thank you again, thanks for looking

    rumpenstiltzkin - Thanks! You should see my teachers and people who are a year ahead of me.

    Andantonus, Metal Fingers there are a bunch of others in their second year but I don't know their CA names.

    Okay so I think I skipped a week on here. Page 5 wow, never thought I would make it. Thank you for posting guys you are helping me a lot. I will continue to try and put a shit ton of art out there on each post so that I am worthy of your responses. You really are helping me reach my goal. I did believe when I started this thread that I would be relying on the help of others a little bit because living a married lifestyle and going to school full time at TAD doesn't really allow me to make 5 posts a week like the quota demands for me to make my goal on time. Again I will post at minimum 5 pages of art to try to make it legitimate.

    But I've been thinking also. At the end of 100 pages weather or not I'm a working concept artist or illustrator. I'm probably going to change my name for a fresh start and make a new sketchbook.

    But I am well under my 33.333 pages a year to meet my three year goal. Its not that I haven't done the art, its just the posting. Please tell me what you think of posting 5 images per post if that's cheating, or posting all art I've done into single posts. I know its my thread but I would love to hear your opinion.

    Also I have an entire sketchbook that is finished with a bunch of homework and assignments from a Basic Design class for Community College. I will post the whole thing in one post. But its kind of long and its a bit old and not really concept art related. Not really where I am now either in my opinion but I completed it in spring of this year and I think it counts. Anyway, again let me know if you want to see that or not and I'll take the time to take the pictures.

    On to the art.

    Here are the Feet studies that are out current assignment in Figure 101. I could do more I think.

    Here are the assignments from last week for Marshall Vandruff Anatomy. So far we've don simple torso's. Simple femurs, simple ankles and now we are getting to shoulders and the arm. No muscles yet still. Mentler would be proud of us studying bones for this long.

    Okay so I really really loved this assignment. It was my first venture into 3D but I can tell you that it will not be my last. If you are an artist at all and have a few hours to sculpt a head of some kind in 3D do it! This was my fourth start over for just a normal human head. Download Sculptris over at Pixologic for free and have at it. Normal head out of the way, now to some monster heads in the future! As soon as I have the scratch I am picking up ZBrush with a new computer to handle the load.

    Now on to a few figures. After beginning foreshortening in the last post we were now to make 2min gestures and 10 minute studies of the same pic. Random from the internet as long as they were foreshortened.

    In this assignment we had to use any of the same foreshortened photos that we had before but draw them upside down or upside down and backwards. Let me say that again. Upside down...and backwards. This was to present a new challenge to the same old way of drawing a figure from a photo right side up or upside down to get the proportions right. It was interesting. Frustrating, but doable. Mostly for fun I think.

    So I'm back at the Live Open Figure Studio sessions over at this tiny little gallery that hosts them. Quite honestly it is so cool because there are only a couple people there and everyone is so friendly, and at the same time competitive. Something interesting that I've been observing though, is that I think people who consider themselves artists, who are in fact learning or beginning are quick to say things that sound familiar to other artists in order to sound agreeable and like minded.

    Also a lot of people I've met seem to think that if they cant make something that looks like reality from the beginning of their creative endeavors then representational art is not for them, and they must have some inner abstract expressionist inside of them. This is just my theory, and I have nothing against really good abstract expressionism. In fact we have to explore abstract compositions to represent different human emotions without figures or anything that reads 'as something' in composition class. But I feel like this initial decision makes these artists whose art looks confused, and they keep doing representational art "abstractly" and it just ends up looking like they cant draw and they all look the same. Its very odd. It's odd to me because they become satisfied with what they are doing. I understand the fact that some people may not give a shit about what other people think and are perfectly content with what they are doing and its just a hobby. I did that myself in highschool. But I didn't improve at all getting no opinions but my own. I also didn't look at any other art that much back then. I guess I'm just trying to understand them. What are your thoughts? Anyway, some stuff from those figure sessions.

    These range from 1 minute, 2 minute, 5 minute, 10 minute, 15 and 20 minute sittings.

    I've already rated you 5 * for hard work alone, and now it seems your work is starting to really pay off.

    I loved the "feets" studies you did recently, and I need to do studies like this one that you've done (particularly relating chest mass & pelvis mass with spine).

    Look up Dunning-Kruger on wikipedia. I have been guilty of that effect, I believe, many times.

    Again, I'm hugely impressed by the volume of work. Keep that going, and maybe undertake the Deathline challenge at Crimson Daggers to keep your motor chugging along.

    Kudos and hats off

    Hi Philosiflo, lots of great stuff here! Is everything on this page from your work at TAD? Nice figure drawing work, it's seems like a hundred years since I was in a life drawing class. I'm sure it would help me out considerably. Can't wait to see what you post next!

    I wanted to thank everyone for the very kind words you say. Dont feel afraid to critique if will only make me better

    Okay so I'm going to make single posts with different assignments. These are all from TAD as I had time for nothing else. You'll see these here before you see them on my blog as it takes a bit more time to post there.

    I'm glad the first semester is over so that I can get some sleep and study some stuff that I've become interested in since I started this journey into a life of freedom and hard ass motherfucking work.

    Now to the pics.

    Composition class. I think this one completely got away from me in the final stages and I lost sight of what it was I wanted accomplished and the feeling of raw and hard power that I wanted. Also in the rendering I completely lost it. I will never make these mistakes again in painting. I will give myself more time in the future.

    Here is an egg head assignment. I might upload the step by step version some day if I'm bored or someone requests it.

    First real physical master copy ever. Was fun. Will try a more difficult one in the future.

    Had to draw in all the stuff and completely remake the stairs to scale to fit all the crap I drew in. I think I must have imagined it much larger though. It seems quite small now.
