    heres what i have so far for today. i had to stop and start working on the paper (which i still have like 2-3 more pages to write) and that kinda killed the flow of things. did i ever mention how much i fucking hate writing? ill try to get in some paintings later tonight, but we'll see.

    did some more posemaniacs. tried bumpin it down to 30 seconds with these. its a LOT harder, but i think im benifitting more from it.

    and i did some animal gestures too. these are from an aweome site i got from a la bapsi (thanks! ) heres the link: these are 30 seconds too and damn these are a lot harder than humans. i think its cuz instead of having the same "animal" over and over again it switches it up so you have to take a moment to figure out where to start. im gonna do more of these

    Attachment 1097339
    after that i did some poses from imagination, couple minutes each. these got a lot better. i need to do more of them!
    Attachment 1097340
    and heres are more portraits. this page is from photos. trying to go faster. 1-3 minutes on these (except the old asian guy)
    Attachment 1097344
    ....and this one from imagination. these suck a lot...except fo sasuke i might paint that too.

    Great job on the new round of 30-second poses. I'm still working with 60 seconds, and I still find that rather difficult, but it's getting better. Awesome portraits, especially that of Sasuke! Can't wait to see how you paint it. And I think we share the dislike of writing. Haha!

    Nice drawings, but I have a suggestion for the gestures.

    You seem to be focusing too much on just shape and an outline of the positive space. And your lines on the gestures are made up of lots of little hairy strokes. Try using more fluid and longer lines from the shoulder/elbow, and don't be afraid to draw inside the outline. I find I learn more from gestures by throwing in some construction lines--an oval for the rib cage, a line marking the angle of the shoulders, line down spine/linea alba etc.

    Blender914: haha yes writing sucks. thanks, i hope sasuke turns out ok O.o

    Andrew Sonea: yeah i know what you mean about the gestures. ill experiment a bit with them and see what i like best.

    small update today. we watched a scott robertson dvd in my industrial design class today which was about the only cool thing we've done so far. it was the intro to perspective one and thats something i really suck at (along with vehicles), so i thought id try to get better with it. heres some homework for class and then some on my own. all free-hand (if you couldnt tell from my little note )

    Danny_K: thanks again man. ive got some good inspiration

    heres some more posemaniacs gestures. 30 secs each again. as promised, i tried out a few different things with these. i like whats going on on the second page. i tried making a near constant mark on the paper while keeping my hand moving the whole time and i liked how that worked. im getting almost as much done in 30 sec as i was in a minute. andrew sonea, as far as making construction lines, i pretty much just do that in my head as i go. i visualize those relations and then put them down on paper. i dunno, when you get better at drawing that gets easier and you can skip that whole step. i used to do the construction thing, but now i dont. all the studies of faces and animals ive done have been with very little erasing. i WILL try to clean up my lines though!

    Attachment 1099009

    Attachment 1099010

    Attachment 1099011

    Lancer, something I tried while doing 30 sec poses is to use one line for one edge. When doing very fast gestures like that, I noticed that I was really rushing to keep up and scribbling as a result ( I guess basically hoping that in my scribbly mess one of the lines would be right). But instead, it just ended up with lazier observation and crappier figures. So instead I tried out slowing way way down, and using one line for one edge and my drawing ability got a big boost from it. I tend to scribble less, plan out better and record more accurate forms. Plus line quality instantly improves to boot.

    Hope I'm not sounding preachy here. Just a little nugget I observed and thought I share.

    NickTrip: no, no preachiness there :] thanks for that and i know what you mean. i do have trouble just using one line cuz i find that when i do its a LOT more inaccurate than the scribbly. im still playing around those 30 sec gestures. hopefully my lines will improve eventually :/ ill work on it.

    oh. my. god. i have soooooo much shit to do this weekend. i gotta finish up a 10 page paper (so 7 pages), do a wood project for industrial design, write a 2 page research paper for my film class, research for the research paper, and make 5 posters by hand with glue and scissors for graphic design...fuuuuuck plus i have to work a meet for like 10 hours. fml!!!

    now that im done bitching, heres some art.

    started that chow. i do love monkeys :] i had a minor ref for the background, but everything else is from head. im getting betteeeeerrr!!! hopefully i can fit in time to finish this by sunday.
