365 Days of Art - 100+ days done!
2011 A Year of Experimentation and Artistic Exploration
Hey good people! I'm pushing myself to do something ridiculous. This year I'm gonna TRY to spend a little time everyday creating something. It's a commitment I already feel myself regretting, but I'm never gonna get better unless I put in some serious practice time.
Though I have little experience with this art stuff, I've always been fascinated by it and eager to try my hand. I took a couple of dinky intro art classes in college and since then have always wanted to do more.
ConceptArt.org has the best artists I've ever seen, and though I feel unworthy of being here, what better place to inspire me to push myself. This project might result in nothing more than hundreds of crappy 5 minute sketches, but I'm pushing on in the hope that something greater will emerge with time.
Criticisms of all kinds are welcomed, I can't get better unless people tell me where I suck.

002: Boy Portrait
So here are the first images of the project! I was in Washington D.C. for the turn of the new year and had a great time checking out the sights.
I'm a very impatient drawer, I'll need to force myself to slow down and take my time lest all my drawings become scribbles.

003: Girl Portrait
Excuse the strange scribbles, this was done on a random piece of scratch paper while waiting for my slow computer.

006: Digital Lady Portrait
This is my first serious attempt at digitally painting a portrait. I am quite surprised at how well it turned out. How in the world do you draw hair though? For now just lazy scribble hair.

Yeah mate! I'm doing the same 365 thing in my sketchbook! I tried last year and only got to like mid feb...sigh. I'm determined this year. If you ride me to get it done i'll ride you! If you miss a day, just dust yourself off and get back to it. So far your stuff is looking great! i need to be doing more realistic stuff like you.
4,8,2 are the best so far i think. Keep at it and you'll be amazed by what a year does!

Nice man! Doing this daily thing is pretty intense for those of us who don't have a career doing this. I could feel myself regretting it before I even started! For extra motivation I'm posting all these drawings on Facebook also where all my friends have easy access to them. Their excitement and comments is good inspiration to keep going, but it also means there's no giving up now lest I die of shame and humiliation of my failure. There's no turning back now!

thansk for stopping by my sketchbook man!
Ill do the same for you and ill try to leave something usefull
First off,, this project.. 365 days of art.. super cool! this could definatly be a way to improve yourself enormous especially if you add in super cool studies along the 365 days aswell
Anyway, that last digital portrait you did looks nice.. you have rendered it very smooth.
but i see some stripes here and there, that are prolly belong to you sketch?
especially the 'hair' ones that drop down from the side over the head. If you make those a little thicker and maybe add a highlight and give them some shadow on the face. It will give the portrait a bit more interesting points to look at.
If its a photostudy then something i always like to try is to add some stuff of my own and see if i can put it in the picture without looking unnatural. You could give that a try!
the figure has a nice movement in him, which is most of the time the hardest thing to do do in a figure.
But i guess i would have to say you could need some more figure studies to make it more appealing. The proportions are not super off or something, but the way you have attached the lower arms to the upper arms is just a bit freaky i think
There is a better way to sell that pose, which you will learn if you really know whats underneath the skin.
So just keep working hard like you are doing now! Good things will come to those who work hard aye
We'll stay in touch
Good luck m8!

The digital portait is looking great, you really seem to be getting the hang of it, the last felt tip drawing could use some shading, it's def your weakest of the bunch, but you're right..keep going, i'll pop in to provide inspiration quite frequently, i love the motivation you're showing so far, i also ask you do the same for me if you have some time

yeah man, nice stuff so far! i like your portraits, they are very expressive! i also like your plan to do every day of the year something creative I'm doing something similar: at least 100 different selfportraits in 2011 (sci-fi- and fantasy-versions inclusive ), so maybe you can stop by!
keep up the good work, i'm looking forward to see some new stuff!
