    Art for my own sake

    I'm currently a second semester freshman at Boston University studying painting. My eventual goal is to become a conceptartist! But for now I am working mostly with traditional medium (graphite/charcoal and oils) and strengthening the basics.

    My current goals are to:
    1. Improve anatomy
    2. Paint without as much blending ( using mark effectively)
    3. Apply my studies to my compositions

    Since I'm already in second semester, I'll post a bunch of my old stuff first and then go on into more recent work. Also a lot of my newer paintings are still with my teacher so I won't really have many of those .

    I appreciate any comments/critiques, Hope you stick around!

    I like it all. I think you could really benefit from learning how to get the same line from making one stroke rather than 10. If its hard to do then thats an indication that you should be doing it.

    Hey there! The piled desks and mirrored self-portrait drawings are really gorgeous! Especially in the desks I can tell there's so much investigation into the different angles. I'm glad to see your figures too; they're a great start. I would suggest working larger, so that you can use your entire arm to draw and to establish a more deliberate relationship between the figure and the page.

    Also, something that will help is drawing from a more structural standpoint for the figures. Draw within the silhouette/contours; build from the most basics (triangle, circle, rectangle, sphere, cylinder, etc.). This will allow you to really understand what you're drawing, and commit it to memory. For example, with what basic shapes can you build the hands? The Loomis heads are looking good, although I would simplify them even further; no nostrils, eyes, lips--those can be easily added on later.

    Keep it up.

    PLeon - Thanks, will keep going.

    Sunny - Thanks, have started to draw the general shapes of things like figures to build form. But when i draw contours i will try to be more aware.

    Yih - Thanks so much for the critique. I am trying to work towards the shapes and building volume. For the loomis heads, I am having a bit of trouble and will try to draw them more simply hopefully with the correct angle and gesture.

    Here are 2 one session head paintings from class

    the one on the left is white and burnt umber palette and the one on the right is yellow ochre, white, burnt sienna, raw umber.
