    Went to the local Zoo today, stopped by the Bug House and did some sketching. Did some more stuff on it when i got home. I kind of altered them alot though. Really helps when you have a living model in front of you.... Bugs count as living models right? LOL

    Hey man, I see improvement from the start til now, so don't you give up. I know how quick getting sucked into other concerns can be, though. It's gotta be easier to keep on track when you're a pro artist and it's what puts food on your table, but when you do it "on the side" it's scary how easy it is to get sidetracked. Here, I use this, and set it as my main page on my browser: http://www.dontbreakthechain.com/ Motivation by shame!

    As for critique, my best advice to give you would be to a) focus on having longer, smoother lines. They can be a little chicken scratchy at some points. I've been working on this problem by drawing with ink sometimes, which really forces you to put down confident lines. And, b) keep doing what you're doing, because it's working.

    @littlebones
    Thanks man! i took your advice to heart and i've been trying to be more confident and less fidgety with my pencil. Also i'll probably end up using that site of yours also! haha


    First time with a tablet, tried to mess around with it in photoshop. This is some pencil sketching i did, cleaned it up and tried to detail on Photoshop, not sure if i'm going to push it any further.

    Great throughput of figure studies here- what I personally find useful is to go back to previous figures and annotate them, pointing out mistakes or future actions.

    Keep it up

    Good stuff! Keep working on the figure studies and anatomy and you'll be on the right track.

    SCOTCH GLASS!

    @oODanyalOo
    I never thought of doing that so i tried going back and doing just that. I did find it to be pretty insightful! thanks, i'll do that from now on.

    @Telephonoscope
    That's the plan!
    ________________

    So i've been really flakey about going to other people's SBs and doing my duty as a CA.org member. Even though i find it to be courteous to check out the SBs of people who come and show some love to mine =) so i've written down all the names of the people who've come here. and i need to make a note to leave some good feedback on everyone's SB when i'm not being tied down by... Life.

    That being said i did this for my Online Art Class, which was an assignment to draw a plain plastic cup from four different eye levels. Basic perspective practice i suppose. But art is all about pushing the envelope, so i decided to toss away that dinky little plastic cup and grab me a SCOTCH GLASS. This is how manly men do Art. Also for some reason the online submission had to be a photograph, we aren't allowed to use scanners?

    Also i'm not allowed to alter the levels over Photoshop. So this is the result of some really awkward lamp positioning, it's the only reason you can make out what's in this photograph.

    Here i come, I bring shame to the word Artist!

    I notice i erase like a crazed writer, so i'm trying not to do that AS much. While i don't advocate throwing away erasers entirely,
    i do advocate learning how to Improv with art. That being said this dump includes one failed shading study, wherein i didn't notice
    the eye was offset by like half an inch, and yet i didn't notice it and continued to shade like a grade A retard. Also a digital study
    with the tablet, it's been a week since i've had it so i'm trying to get used to it by doing studies and doodles occasionally.
    So pardon me while i make Digital Artists across the realm facepalm with my tablet vomit.

    A shade study

    Did a Shade Study from a photo on Photoshop. this one turned out better then the others. I'm starting to get a bit more comfortable with this Tablet. Gonna do more of these Photo studies!... Also i kind of went off the trail a bit with the shade study, i figured since i was done i might as well have some fun with it and make a few changes.

    Assorted Figure Studies.

    Need to mix up these studies some more, i guess lots of Figure and Gesture is good. Need to do some hands tomorrow, i suck at them. If anyone has any advice on Hand Tutorials that'd be good, i mean other then drawing them from life.

    Also need to do more Tablet stuff! i'm still really uncomfortable with that Tablet :|

    Ixallus the Scrub is glad he is in an Art Class. Otherwise he wouldn't do shit.

    @moaribn
    Thanks man! i'm going to keep trucking on, i want to get good at this.


    ______________________________


    So my Art School makes us draw a lot of objects from life, which is really great because on my own leisure time i rarely do that. So the stuff below is all Charcoal, this week in school we did lots of charcoal. Which, i found personally difficult, because for some reason i really don't like charcoal and have never really used it. Maybe this class will make me love it? Anyhow, the instructor gave some really good techniques on how to utilize charcoal. I will say this really helped my shading knowledge. Charcoal makes you really think about those shade maps ALOT more.

    The first pic is a Still life i put together, the task was just to draw one fruit, an apple. But my CA.org spirit kicked in and i wanted to really push the envelope, so i set up a piece. I'm sure there's some real charcoal artists there who are cringing at the many mistakes i no doubt made, so fire away!

    The last pic is just done with pencil, it was a Mug Study we were asked to do from an art manual.
