    those planar heads are really cool! you should keep them in mind when painting, as i can see that you're missing some volume in some of your paintings.
    nice compositions, too.
    keep them coming.

    Purb--I love that attitude, "keep attacking..." thanks for commenting!
    Razy--Thank you, will do! I really do need to remember depth while painting. I've been reading Loomis lately, and he talks about always being able to "see the other side of the head..." it's an interesting thought.

    Remake of an old portrait, two cast study WIPs (value sets! THEY'RE IMPORTANT! I wish someone introduced me to that concept years ago...), some perspective studies, annnd something else. I've been playing around with brushwork recently, but nothing I want to show quite yet.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Zol--Thank you! CA is a great community, isn't it?

    I made a comic for school in one weekend (just for an English class, by the way)... which took the entire weekend, but I'm actually pretty impressed I finished it at all. Still, the art's too shoddy to post, so you get thumbnails.
    ..sorry.

    I've begun playing around with hatching and ink and stuff! I don't really know what I'm doing, but it's difficult and a TON of fun, so I'm gonna keep doing it! Seriously, it's ridiculously fun.
    I am graciously following ccsears' guides and homework assignments for this subject. Great stuff!

    Lastly, I've started an isometric drawing.

    Quick post today--
    more heads in pen and ink, all 10 minutes each. Just playing around with effects. I'm really enjoying these!

    Also some color comps (relatively fun--whatever color was selected at the end had to be the primary color for the next comp) and an update on my isometric project.

    Thanks for looking!

    Awesome sketchbook! I love your colours... and the line work in the self portraits and ink hatching experiments (particularly like the first and last postraits) are full of character. I totally think you should do more of those...

    Hello.
    I like a lot of things in your studies. The figure ones with line are really fresh and I think the quality is good. About your more realistic paintings: I think it has good aspects, but you can improve the quality of the edges. In some of your paintings the control is good, and your figure is in one atmosphere, but in other ones, the edges are really sharp and this makes your paintings look cut out, and not like a one integrated painting. This happens some times in your drawings between the hair and the face, in the outline of figure, or in the eyes or in the eyebrows in some cases. If you soften your edges it would solve these issues. In some of your paintings your control is good, but in other ones it feels like you don’t think about it.
    In my studies I´ve learned that having a hierarchy of edges is vital. Try using sharp edges in some parts, like in your focus area and accents, then soften the rest in diferent levels. The parts that are farther from the focus point should be softer and softer in a really subtle way. I think doing this will make your work more athmospheric and make the image more readable and appealing. I think that If you have this concept more in your mind, your work will improve!!!
    I hope this will help you!! ☺ And I hope I have explained clearly. My english is not perfect.

    Thank you for the feedback everyone!
    Spinsea -- the ink portraits were superfun. I'll definitely do some more!

    Xavier--Thank you so much for the detailed critique! You make a lot of good points. I really need to work on edges.. one comment you made about how I'm more careful in some pictures but lose it in others is actually really eye-opening for me. I think of edges as something you do at the end, some blurring here, sharpening there, to finish the painting. And if it's just a "quick work" I won't pay the edges much attention. But I still pay attention to proportions in "quick work;" I never abandon value for "quick work." Everything with an edge needs those edges to be consciously designed, from the very beginning, quick work or not. With that in mind I'll try again. And again, thank you!

    Quick post today--sketches for my perspective class final and some environments. I'm going to start trying environments again, but... I'm just as clueless as before. It's so frustrating.
    Which is why I have to work on it!

    Thanks elpez!

    I often feel that in art, you never graduate exercises... you just add in more difficult and more varied ones, as you expand into higher levels and study more subjects (ie perspective AND color AND this AND that). And whenever I decide to focus in on a weakness, I feel like I'm abandoning my other studies.. I draw for hours a day and still feel like a slacker..
    I'm happy with my progress and all, but it's just like I'm always two steps behind. @__@" If I look here then I'm not looking there, right?

    So in accordance with that theme, here comes a variety of studies! Gestures 1-3 minutes.
