    Like in your last few posts how you draw in your sketchbook a full scene with just pure general lines and not so much going crazy on rendering. Just the fact of getting a complete scene done on a page is difficult enough.

    Every time I draw a scene like a cafeteria or wherever I'm at I can never finish it. Always get distracted, or just can't cut it down to fit on a page correctly.

    First quarter over!

    Just finished my first Term at SCAD. Did not get as much drawing as I had hoped for. Had to clear my foundation courses like art history, english etc etc. But summer is here! Time to start training!!!

    Here's the rest of my 2nd sketchbook for the term. All drawn from life.

    Some assignments from my first ever foundation drawing class

    Just finished my first quarter in SCAD last week! Here are some Foundation drawing class assignments. You know how foundation classes goes.....draw buttons thrown randomly on the floor.. draw a view of a nearby park (forsyth park). Haha! The focus of the class was processing things in life with our eyes and learning how to translate it into drawing. Glad to have learnt some really important concepts during that process..

    Nice studies~ Try to be more precise with your lines. Be assertive but retain control. Right now, they seem a bit choppy and the control of the volumes and proportions are suffering. Slow down and make every mark count. GL =)

    hmm.....I understand what you mean. But I'm sure you know slowing down is not an option when models/people in the streets are doing 2 to 30 sec poses. Then again, within that timing should result in gestures much less detailed then what I've been doing. Haha! It confuses people sometimes.

    But the choppy lines have got to go!

    Slow down and make the right marks is better than rushing and making a lot of marks that don't count. I panic with quick studies too, but it gets better with more mileage.

    I really like how expressive your ink work is and how you shade with graphite.

    Concept art

    Finally began doing some character concept art sketching. Done with ball point pen. No direction in terms of design here. Just went with the flow of my pen. You'll see lots of mistakes in the costume I tried to correct. Haha! *Can't really erase pen ink....

    More will be on the way! Maybe pencil next time.

    Class assignments

    Some stuff I did for my second drawing foundation class. The still life was done with black charcoal pencil on white paper, and self portrait done with white charcoal on black paper.

    I like the quality of light that you are able to get in the still lives (really like the button piece )that you have posted and the rendering in your latest piece with the bull in really nice!
    One thing I think you could work on, and I'm sure life drawing will help with this, is proportions.
    p.s. thanks for introducing me to Paul Calle, his stuff looks really interesting

    Thanks Bruce! You're right. I was kind of focusing on other things apart from proportions for some of my drawings. Will be sure to bring proportions back on track! Yes! Paul Calle! The pencil master! He has a book on his pencil works on amazon I think $10? The best $10 I have ever spent in my life.
