    Hello Kiwi, what's up?
    Sorry for me being absence so long, sometimes I just
    can be an ungrateful bastard, I apologize. But here I am
    now, visiting your house again, thank you for the coffee.
    I viewed your latest paintings, and I am happy with your
    life painting from #222. Is that a huge sign of improvement hanging
    above us there? I think it is my darling, I think it is. Step by step
    you are slowly achieving something that humans thought that it
    is unachievable. I want you to send me your autograph ,
    when you became famous. Or hey, what am I talking about,
    you are already famous. You just keep drawing and painting and
    do not fear the reaper.

    #213 answered my question about tone studies, I did not know for sure what
    that means, regarding to drawing.
    #222 looks great, I had to look twice if it's real or a picture.

    Hey guys, thanks so much for the support. I'll get to your comments when I make a "real" update

    It's been tough these past couple of weeks, very busy with school, and I've had a flare-up of health issues that I'm trying to take care of, draining me you know. But I'm still here in spirit, always appreciative of the time you take to view my work and say a few words

    In the meantime, the quest to find my voice as a contemporary artist is constantly nagging at my brain. I feel less and less of an illustrator, and more a person of the contemporary art-thrust these days, and I find that I value art that is charged with meaning and intent. Illustration will always keep a special place in my heart, but I don't think that it's my path, maybe it will remain as a vehicle for my imagination to become visual fodder for my future work.

    And representation bores me, though I feel that to skirt around it in the developing stages (when aren't we developing?) produces immature work.

    Anyway, long winded way to say, I'm grass blowing in the wind. My view as an artist is subject to change with the tides. I wish I were more close-minded so I could stop this existential, inward-searching dialogue that I'm stuck in.

    But I keep reminding myself of the Buddhist philosophy: It is not what you think that defines you, but what you do.

    Gotta get out of my head!

    Thanks as always guys I'll try to get some new work up soon

    Hey you Kiwi, stop joking around
    and give us some beautiful updates, just as you used
    to do earlier.

    Heh. Overall statement = story of my life. Bold = Noooooo!!!!

    I nearly went into an art school for university. I didn't, basicly because I couldn't figure out why I liked art so much. Sounds a bit stupid when it's simplified, but that's what is boiled down to. So, when I do figure out what the hell I want out of it I'll take that sucker down.

    If contemporary's your thing, go for it! There are many types of "representation" if you you want to look at it in a less bodily manner- representation of something that strikes you, be it the colour, the shape, the light layout, the roundness, the happiness- who says that the only way to show this is realism? Of course, often the "best way" is realism , but if you're going for exploration out of self interest... Anyway, your experiments seem like you're having fun, and they are fun to watch as well.

    I agree, go for it Just experiment, it's all about finding out what you like doing the most. I have a thing for contemporary too, though like you also love illustration, I just don't do it as much these days! I often just play around with ideas and things.
    Anyway, I love the abstracted life drawing a few posts back. Keep it up and looking forward to seeing what you'll come up with!

    Insanity is the key!
    Also, studies are a key. And passion is a key. Also, so are inspiration, motivation and dedication. Talent can be a key. Insomnia can also be a key, depression is a sad rusty little key. Damn, artists need one hell of a keyring.

    So true. Some people never seem to realize this and it can be very annoying.

    Your still life work is looking good. The latest one in post 222 is nice so you are definitely doing something right. I wish you good luck on your path whichever way you chose to go with your art.

    Could it be? An update? I have lots of new figures to show, so I'm gonna split this up...

    But not before I reply to you all!

    Jasper_: Thanks! It keeps me excited, I can't stick with the same thing for very long

    Naidy: Yeah, I was skeptical about abstract for a long time, and then I started to see the merit, after I learned more art history. Now I feel like I have to find my voice in abstract!

    devastacio: hey friend, thanks for the support, I always feel happy after reading your comments I'll try to get more imagination work in here, I just feel like I'm not solid in my studies enough to really throw myself out there yet!

    [B]Velocity Kendall[/B:] You're so sweet! Thanks so much

    Dope Fiend: Solid advice! I definitely think splitting the 'scape into layers would help. I was really struggling in trying to separate different areas.

    Verehin, metalsnakejuice: thanks guys!

    LtPlissken: It is always an inspiration to hear from you, my friend I will do my best to keep updating with new things!

    iven: Thank you!

    Ramalooke: Thanks for the nudge, I needed it!

    Aeon, FoostepsBeckon, qlotzan: Thanks!

    CrookedHorn: Thank you! I definitely hope that the studies will help

    Pixie Trick, Aila, Bergulf: Thanks guys, it's helpful to know that someone out there understands

    ...

    So I had an opportunity to do a lot of life drawing recently, which I snapped up eagerly But...to my disappointment, I sucked. Guh. I need to do a lot of studies of sitting positions. I fuck up on proportions. And this guy was super ripped, difficult to draw someone with that much muscle for me.

    My favorite of the bunch is the final blind gesture. I think it has the most character.

    More figural work! Better stuff in this batch, I think. Wasn't so concerned with accuracy...I think they were more accurate anyway though!

    Still not at the top of my game, but I think I'm getting there.

    sumi brush and bamboo pen for the first bunch.
    The standing long pose bled a lot on the mulberry paper I used -_-


    Watercolor wash with conte on the grey toned one

    And a full watercolor painting for the last, which I may pursue as a style in the future.

    Enjoy!

    ...oh yeah, and go get St. Vincent's new album, Actor.

    Kiwi, i really like the loose gesture of the very last piece in 256, it intrigues me! you're def right, character is a good word to describe it..funny how things work out that way

    Your last post shows a huge improvement from the previous in terms of form and proportion.

    My only suggestions might be to do some more work from imagination (test your knowledge), try to push your values, and just keep pushing yourself, despite the hard ships you seem to have run into

    As always, don't be a stranger to my SB, cuz I certainly will be visiting yours often, so i expect to see moar!

    ...the imperfections make it interesting...

    Pluscandy, SharonJ, MaFeng Thanks guys

    DopeFiend: When I get some free time, I'll definitely try to get some imagination in there, seems to be the general suggestion And of course I'll stick around your sb, way too interesting for me to stay away!

    Velocity Kendall, hucumkedi, ste, jailhouse: Thanks to all of you for lookin!

    ...


    Here are a few portraits I drew today while a few of my classmates were stuck in the hotseat for their project proposal. I feel like I have more success in capturing likenesses when a person is always moving a little bit. Forces me to be more thoughtful in the lines I choose to put down.

    Skr8 up inkin'

    Wow, the second batch of figures today looks good (not every figure but most of them), especially the colored ones, gesture, atmosphere, I like them a lot!
    The portraits are nice too, I love the liveliness in the first one
    Well done!

    wow those last portraits are awesome. I especially liek how gestural the last one is, without the renering. I am seriously impressed by the mark making there. No crits from me at all, other than just keep doing what you're doing.

    Perhaps, perhaps.. just one. If you block in the darks and/or lights as more large areas it will give your portraits a little more form. Particuarly on this last one of the guy. There are plenty of lines, but when you don't have time to render meticulously then try to block in whole areas of light and shadow. You have done that pretty well on his top lip and left (our right) cheek, so you know what I mean (I hope)

    Hope that reminder helps!
