    Looking at your 3D I definitely didn't deserve that max-grade on my 3rd semester project which was a 3D game! My God... I can't even start to wrap my head around how you do that! And how long does it take you to render!? My PC would die frying in the process :p
    Your other art is great as well.
    Awesome!

    Looks great! The colors remind me of Lorlandchain. Not saying the work does itself, just the color, haha.

    Keep up the good work, Connie!

    Your painting already looks 1000 times better than my first color still life oil painting when I started at Laguna College of Art & Design back in 1995-'96...

    Semester is over, Beginning Drawing Class done. It went pretty well - for a total noob that never did stuff with a brush before. All four of my paintings ended up in school display. Only one other student has all four on display. about 5 others have one or two - for the fall semester that is.

    I'm taking three classes in spring. 3D Design, Color Theory, and repeating Beginning Figure Drawing.
    I did figure drawing this summer, and got A and full credit. I want to take it again for two reasons... see if I can handle close to a full load of school before transferring to a major school, and also, to make me practice figure drawing more. I'll take figure drawing 1 again for credit.no credit, so in case my health starts falling apart, I have an option to go easy in the class.

    Fantastic work! Your paintings seem to be really meticulously done both in process and in the rendering. It's great to hear your 3d work was featured professionally too! You've got me beat on crits however.

    That still life painting in post #126 is really impressive, especially for your first colored painting. I love the combination of colors, but my favorite part is that little white teapot in the front - the subtle blending is really wonderful.

    Thanks for the comment on my Sketchbook! You know, I might join you in your Loomis-repetition suffering, misery loves company after all. I don't know much about 3D art, but yours looks good to me!

    Your still lifes are rad! Accurately drawing all those ellipses still eludes me. Great jorb!

    Great sketchbook. I kinda had to whiz through and missed all the comments, but there's some strong images and artwork.

    Hey ConnieKat thanks for the gesture advice. Awesome stuff in ur SB I really love that Durer hand study!

    The contour drawings of your still lives are insane, how are you able to deal with so much detail at once, I take one look at it and just think "nope, impossible."

    Hey Whirly, thanks a bunch for looking and the nice compliments.

    About the detail, we learned how to do that in my drawing class, we started off with learning how to look for positive and negative space, and after few exercises where you start having a clue what to look for, I find those freeform contour line study sketches pretty fund to do. I know the proportions and perspective on them are all wrong, bit that wrongness gives them and interested organic look at the same time, the way I see it.

    sweet sweet stuff man, i dig those oils and 3Ds
    but you need to tackle a little more anatomy and proportions.
    its a good start, but those porportions need some improvement.
    tho your 3d stuff seems to have the right proportions and anatomy

    thanks for all the help with my whining btw!

    I went though your entire thread, and man you did a lot of progress during the class, your figures toward the end were very good
    Your first paintings look much better than any of my still lifes, so you're good
    Keep it up

    You've got some interesting 3d works! I'm sure your 3d skills will help you a lot in understanding volumes and shapes in your further drawing practice. Also your still lives are very well, love your coloring style! Keep up your tight work! ^__^

    Hey Connie, nice work on the paintings. It's obvious you're really pushing hard to improve. I would really watch the head sizes on those quick stick figures though, they look like midgets... unless of course the model was a midget, which could perfectly be the case. Just remember, the rib cage is roughly 150% the mass/volume of the skull, and there has to be enough space between the ribs and the hip box for the body to be able to bend, so just knowing those two facts will automatically orient your size relationships of the head, ribs, and pelvis (the three main masses of the body).

    The more detailed figures look nice, especially the last one, but I would personally recommend moving on to study many of the connector points in detail... for example, how the hips really work (eg. the widest point is at the greater trochanter, which comes out at an angle from the hip socket), how the deltoids wrap over the shoulder joint, etc. Having them as balls is really not that beneficial in my humble opinion. Start getting to know anatomy a little more.

    Keep up the great progress!

    Thanks for the tips
    These are for figure drawing class which just started, he has us doing something new every class. Right now the cylinders were to start people on the above/below the viewer concept. Boxes are to start people on looking at the body parts in perspective. More anatomical detail comes later in the class Today's class we did light logic and identifying lights and darks.

    Since you made the comment on the heads.

    Looking through the sketch pages here it just looks like you haven't done many studies on the heads and such. Just need to practice em' simple as that lol. It's one of the most iconic and complex things to draw. The 3 things it seems people find the hardest initially to tackle are hands, feet, and the head surfing around peoples SB's.

    For me I'm in the opposite boat, seems like your getting a pretty firm grasp of the human figure, while me I've done a ton of faces and heads, starting to feel fairly confident on those from imagination but I need to do a lot more figure studies. So I feel more confident in that and it's features than the rest of the body.



    When you do get into the face the only real comment I can make is be aware of the proportions of the eyes. One of the biggest flaws I see people (including myself) do is unintentionally enlarging the eyes. I think people do it because the eyes are rather fun to make and an important feature people put more emphasis on than they should personally.

    Since I'm watching your for SB quite some time now, I guess I could also leave a comment...

    About the heads: Also try to always remember that they are much more than just a egg shape with features (exes/lips/nose), but that the planes are equally important. Someone once told me I'm just slapping features on the face withouth thought, and that really got me thinking - I guess it's a common mistake, because eyes are just so more fun than drawing a forehead
    Maybe another thing to note is, don't draw the eyes too close to the nose in 3/4 or profile view. Your heads so far aren't really off though - the basic face/head and proportions look good. And you're right, some studies and you'll excell!

    I feel a bit pretentious for giving advidce on drawing heads, as I'm struggling a lot with drawing those myself - but I'm mostly repeating what advide I've picked up here and there, so maybe it will still help.

    By the way, will you be reporting about your LCAD experience here (or somewhere else)? I would so love to watch you progress there and how it's going and all!

    And one last question (am I annoying you already?) which bothers me since I first entered your sketchbook: How the hell did you achieve this level of smooth shading in the second image? http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...1&postcount=10
    Even if I try to be "careful" with drawing, it doesn't even nearly come out like this. Did you use harder/thinner pencils? Careful hatching in several layers? I always wonder if I'm just too impatient when I see pencil work like that, or if I miss something crucial.

    Have a nice week!

    Thanks a bunch for such an elaborate response

    You know, my first figure drawing class was a month long, three days a week 8 hours a day experience. One day covered a lecture and some practice on head drawing. That happened to be the day I was so tired and nauseated from the heatwave, that even though I was in the class, I just didn't absorb much.

    So this semester I decided to take the class again to keep practicing - we can take same level class up to three times, it started about a month ago.

    Coincidentally, today, we had a lecture and some practice on head drawing - I was able to follow this time. Between then and today, I had virtually no head drawing experience.

    I was just feeling a tad confident because I made some progress on the figure drawing, that I thought I could wing it with the head... and well, it shows I'm missing a lot.

    We had a really nice three and a half hour long lecture today, he talked and sketched the skull, the flesh and how it fits the skull, where key points are, how the 'canons' (proportions) relate to one another... then showed us construction of the individual parts.... Now I'm armed with all kinds of new things I can attempt to put into (mis)use next class (Wed.).

    That second image... that's probably about 60 hours of layer upon layer of fine pencil strokes, starting with a 2H pencil, then gradually softer (H, B, 2B, 4B, 6B), to deepen the darks as needed.

    I got kind of lucky on that one, the teacher showed us a demo on how to do it, and it immediatelly just clicked. That rough shaded image above is what I know how to do before the demo. I'm not sure if I can explain how, without a demonstration. Let me poke around the youtube and see if I can't find something similar.

    Thanks for replying - it's good to hear that it really needs time and practice, and I'm not just missing something or being too stupid. I'll go and look if I'll find some videos on that topic, thanks for the advice.

    Good luck with your head studies!
