    Massive Update...begins now

    Thanks Marian Rowling! We are both doing amazingly well now, praise God. We are very thankful to be back to "normal" life. I am posting the drawings, with step by step, from last fall. But the current one I am working on which has a DAILY progress step by step (and Ill also include explanation) will be posted later tonight or this weekend.

    Thank you llex_paul.

    I will be posting 2 figure drawings from last fall as well as my final cast drawing project. ALL drawings are done on TONED paper with charcoal and white chalk.

    I will create a new post for each drawing as that it is insane to try and upload 14 pictures in one post. I begin with the back pose, which was my first drawing done on toned paper. It was done last fall during the first 5 weeks of the trimester.

    There are 4 in-progress pictures. The first at 2 days, then 4 days, 9 days, 13 days, and the finished piece.

    "Courtney"

    Thisfigure drawing is very large (44") and done on toned paper with white chalk. It was my second drawing done during the Fall trimester. It is my best figure drawing up to this point. It is also my largest.

    This one includes 4 in-progress photos and the finished piece.

    I want to include two extra pictures done outside of my normal atelier studies.

    The first one is a drawing of a cellular tower I did for my Husband for a Christmas gift. He works in telecom and loves cell towers. It is a simple day sketch.

    The second picture is a frame I am making, thanks to my teacher's amazing instruction. I still have to finish it, but this is a quick picture of the progress.

    I will post the DAILY progress/tutorial pictures of my current figure study in the next day or so.

    Absolutely stunning work, really love that cell tower framed up. The female nudes emerging from that dark background are equally stunning, keep up the good work.

    Thank you kikindaface and kevin_!!

    Thanks too Jordan_. My Husband really loved the drawing. I only regret I did not have longer to work on it.

    Thanks llex_paul! Actually 10 weeks is an extremely long time to work on a single project... These are all atelier studies. I am training at the Ravenswood Atelier in Chicago and just finishing my 2nd year. Each trimester has 2 five week long figure poses, evening drawing, and afternoon projects. Each project can take anywhere from 2 weeks - 10 weeks, depending on the individuals ability and the project's complexity. Hope this helps. (PS - I LOVE my atelier. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to study in the traditional painting method).

    I hope to have more posted soon.

    NiyanaMae these drawings are superb! I love the level of progression in this sketchbook. The most recent works are stunning. The soft tones and gradations! I'm majoring in fine arts and have a great deal of appreciation for this type of work and hope to get on your level and beyond one day. Keep up the great results.

    Hey guys! Thanks so much Colour Coded and Giorge for the compliments! I'm sorry it has been so long since I updated this post. The Spring was extremely busy! I ended the school year in the middle of June and I am just now feeling the urge to draw again after being so burnt out for most of the Spring trimester.
    I began painting and I will post pictures as soon as I can! Thanks everyone!

    ARC Scholarship Competition!

    Hey guys,

    I am sorry it has taken until now to update this thread. I had a very overwhelming Spring trimester and a very needed restful summer. School begins next week and I am ready to get back to it.

    Before I post my work from the Winter and Spring trimesters, I have a special announcement to make!

    My Final Cast project, the Draped Figure Cast Study, placed Third in the ARC 2013 Scholarship Competition!!! I am so thankful beyond words and give glory to God for blessing my life with such amazing teachers and blessing the work of my hands.

    My piece is shown below, but you can view all the winners by following this link:

    The final 5 weeks of the Spring Trimester I was able to officially begin color painting with a limited palette (ivory black, flake white, yellow ochre, cadmium red). Unfortunately the only picture I have of the final painting, which didn't turn out as well as I hoped but is still a step in the right direction, is from my cell phone camera. :/ Hence the small size and horrible color that is not true to real life.

    More to come in the next couple months as I return to school! I also need to post the step by step pictures I have for Marian Rowling! Sorry Marian, I haven't forgotten about you, I have just been busy. I will try to post those today or tomorrow.

    Wow, love the softness of these while still having great contrast. They almost glow.
