    I'd love to tell you somehting insightfull and usefule=... sadly after a couple of daying thinking of what exactly that would be I'm drawing a blank. Keep drawing from life and keep exercising your brain by questioning what you are doing and learning. You are deffinitely improving and are on the right track. Most of all- have fun!

    Really impressive progress with your people and figures! You shouldn't be so scared of working more still life digitally, there are some control problems in the lines and ellipses but its great to keep at it. I also really like your Alice picture, the expression is so apt, really hope you finish it soon

    Hey guys! Sometimes the Powers that Be just have a very different idea of the way your day is gonna go. Weird sh*t kept happening this morning that put me in a very bad state, and without any time.

    So I leave you with this horrendous drawing, and I will have to respond to all of your amazing comments later today.

    I'm so sorry! *LAME LAME*

    Okay, I have a few minutes to respond to your delicious comments!

    Ramalooke: Yeah, I can tell that I'm drawing with a tortured wrist, because I think I'm developing carpal tunnel! I need to start practicing with my whole arm. Hard to do on a small plane though.

    FootstepsBeckon: I think in the evenings I'll do longer still lifes to balance out my approach. It's one thing to try to scramble, and quite another to really study every detail.

    Quigleyer: Thank you! I'm glad people have been pushing me to up the brush size. It definitely helps.

    Spivak000: Indeed, fun, but intimidating! I think I might solidify my understanding of the form before I leap into that arena But look out when I get there! Yargh!

    Arepa: Your name is so tasty. And I am extremely hungry. Torturous! Thanks! I'm glad you enjoy the experimentation. It's really the best way to tackle any misgivings about doing something one is uncomfortable with or unsure about. It opens many doors! And no recycled paper? That's unfortunate...It's fairly easy to make your own though All you need is a blender, some starch, and some paper!

    Sean McClain: Thanks! This thing has been a great motivator for me. I'd done a sketchbook a long time ago and didn't stick with it. I don't think I really had my eye on the prize, wasn't in it for the studies. I feel like this is really gonna get me somewhere. Thanks for the support! I'll try to keep pumping the gas

    Gof: I agree! The crits have really helped

    TacoMeat: Thanks friend I will do some longer studies now.

    devastacio: Hey! I was actually getting up every morning to do a study I will continue to wake up with art! And thanks so much for the links, they're really helpful I'm sure that they'll improve my work substantially.

    LtPlissken: YOU TOO! And Grazie.

    Sivonja: Damn. I gotta get some coffee in that mug. It's stressing people out hahaha. And thanks for the encouragement. Just gotta keep pressing on!

    iven: Thank you! I'll include more gestures as I go along And I'll check your stuff out too, not to worry

    SuperSwank1: Thanks dude Alice has surprised me with a lot of good feedback

    PixieTrick: Haha, really? Looks like you said something pretty insightful in your post anyway. "Questioning what you are doing and learning" is a very profound thing to say. So don't second guess your advice! I will strive to enjoy every minute of my art. Cheers!

    PaintMyBrain: Thanks friend, I'll try to figure her out And no problem, I try to contribute in every post.

    Nelka: Thank you! Yes, I have to keep working through the fear. It's just so weird drawing without paper, no real give or take in the medium But it's a different approach and way of thinking, good for keeping me well rounded! I'll try to finish Alice, she's hard to resolve!

    Justas: Thank youu!! It's a really great exercise, and fun. I recommend it!

    ...

    Thanks guys. The support is amazing. I go to sleep with a smile on my face! I will continue to support all of you as well

    hello.

    The previous mug painting was okay but now... you use that scribbling again... Many object can stand that if done artistically but a your mug is a nice shiny warm roundinsh thing, it doesn't need those I think.
    I've read what you wrote about the puke-y one Don't put you under unnecessary stress... 20 minutes seem to be enough for a decent simple still life when everything is okay, skill, mood, whatnot. I guess a pro can pull off something like this any time (and even if he/she would say otherwise, the result would be still great for the normal folks).
    But when you paint something, you are the current version of you and the time you need has no relation to the above. Even you you do it fine now, maybe tomorrow it will be different. Life is like that. Practice helps. Appreciate the fact you practice, even if the results aren't so good you expected...

    Your figures are kinda nice (I just rushed over your whole sb, I can't say useful things now), sometimes really cool. There are room for improvement on faces, features sometimes are a bit off.

    Keep it up and try to get friendly with those cups and mugs, I never really knew the difference, I will never be really good with English but I can make me understand and chat with people like you so it's not so tragic.

    Hey, I just read on the internet that life studies will going to kill you.
    Michael Jackson was doing lots of life studies...

    Just joking.
    Anyway, your painting is ok, do not discourage yourself.
    I will do that instead of you.
    Joking again.

    But, you just do a lot of these life drawings and paintings and
    you will get better and better. That of course rarely happens
    from one day to another, but you just have patience, faith and
    do not let a bad mood to get too much to your core.

    I always have a load of trouble getting myself to do still lifes myself, so I think just the fact you're sitting down and getting to buisness is a good thing.
    Keep up the good work mate!

    Thanks for commenting on my sketchbook!

    You're making a lot of progress, but I'd like to see you really focus on a piece, finish it out, or even work on getting cleaner lines.

    Just my observations, keep posting!

    ...the imperfections make it interesting...

    hey there,

    as 'Snake' already mentioned dont you worry too much about a few messed up work. i too did some nasty wonky faces lately and made me wonder "will they haunt me when im sleeping" You may see that last paint job as a utter failure but trust me, through failure you'll be successful. btw if i paint the same thing i might not drink coffee for some time. Muahahaha ....

    cheer up mate. your friends are here with you. now go do an update for us will ya?

    EDIT :

    heres something i found just now..some daily painting stuff. check the suggestions on the right side as well. could be useful.

    Haiyo!

    Thanks so much for the kind words, a very healthy sounding endorsement!

    Gestures are looking great, still lifes need a little more patience, something more vibrant, i've personally loved painting organic still lives

    Please keep it, people capable of short and sweet words like that are necessary to fuel forums like this!

    ! go go go !

    Some really nice work you have here. Though it looks like you'd benefit by going back on some of your studies after they're done, you can vaguely see the gestures of people behind some of them (I mean the really quickly done ones that are referenced from life: people walking past etc) and then try to fill in the gaps from memory, good for putting anatomy studies into practice when you're trying to use memory as your guide.

    hey kiwi!
    wow, youre drawing is really good. its crazy the difference between your drawing and your cg paint. Have you seen the peer project? its basically a bunch of exercises to help one understand how colour/light/paint works, it might help you get a solider foundation for your painting.
    anyway i like your drawing a lot, and the alice concept is cool
    keep i tup!

    hey

    when you make a study from life it's good to simplify a big mass of lighting and colour

    Hey guys! Man, I've been so busy since school started, sorry for the delay in updates

    Anyways, I highly recommend checking out Bruce Nauman in this Art21 feature. He's quite fascinating. And an awesome installation artist (to tie into my previous art palaver). That, and if you haven't listened to Andrew Bird, please do...the more I listen, the more magical his music is.

    shiNIN: Yeah, I slipped right back into it didn't I? Old habits die hard. I wonder if there is a broad-tip tablet pen, that would help me a lot I think. The thin point is too close to a pen I guess. And thanks for the encouragement I'll try not to be so hard on myself! The reason it's 20 minutes is because that's about all the time that I can spare in the morning before my day begins. It's tough, but since I was successful with that brown mug, I know I can do it (at least sometimes!) I'll work on my faces, I'm trying to draw those too fast as well...I can do them correctly with a lot of time (as can anyone, right?) And your English is quite good! I'm sure that if I attempted your language, that you wouldn't be able to understand one sentence from me haha.

    LtPlissken: I think you're right. They're out for my blood for sure! I will draw them with a knife now. And that will help my mood as well, a little battle is always good for the soul

    Naidy: Thanks dear, I'll do my best!

    Dope Fiend: Well you just named my greatest weakness! Finishing something...I've gotta work on my discipline. I'll get on it!

    FootstepsBeckon: haha...so am I...

    Ramalooke: Would that work for a tablet? The drawing surface is only so big..

    devastacio: Haha You're simultaneously cruel and kind, you make me smile And thanks for the link! I'll try to apply that to my work

    fragmentedchimp: Haiyo to you! And I agree, something organic would be fun, but at the moment I'm trying to get my geometric shapes down. It's easy to cheat with a flower You can get away with an ellipse that's incorrect. I'm off! POW!

    BlightedArt: You're right, I've had this suggestion from a couple people now, I'll put it into practice!

    Spivak000: Aw Spivak, I'm sure you guys have plenty of threads to keep you busy School is going well, it's an exciting year for me, my professors are much closer in philosophy to me than the ones I've had in the past.

    aks9: Thank you! Glad you're enjoying my work And thanks for the link to the peer project, i'll definitely check it out!

    Marion Rowling: Thank you! Man I've felt like I'm terrible at ellipses, it feels good to have a complement on them

    TacoMeat: Thanks for the nudge, I'll try to update more regularly! It's tough with this schedule

    [ste]: Thanks! Glad you like them

    kojot: That's very helpful! I'll try to apply it in my future stuff

    ...

    Here are a few gestures from life.

    I'm still struggling how to sketch a face quickly and accurately, they're so specific! I'm thinking I try to insert too many details.

    I sat on a cold bench by the university library where people are constantly coming and going, and tried to capture walks. Still trying to find a good economy of line, sometimes I feel like I make too many arbitrary marks.

    Enjoy!
