    Chock Full o'Nuts

    It's been a while since I was last here. Classes are almost out for the summer, which is exciting and means I get to work on comics and [sad attempts at] concept art.

    It's so much more encouraging to post my stuff here, crits or no, just so I can keep track with everyone else.

    If anything, it puts me back into perspective.

    Most recent thing I've done, finished a few hours ago as a project for life drawing.

    Self-portrait, in charcoal on 22x30 Arches paper. Took about 10 hours. I need to do more of these over summer, they're really a lot of fun.

    This is my most recent stuff aside from the self portrait. It's all classwork from drawing and life drawing class. I'm going to miss my drawing classes over summer.

    The first one is from about 4 months ago, the last one within the last week. Nyeh, there's a little glare on the second one. I took the picture after it was shrink wrapped. xD Whoops.

    Thanks for commenting on my sketchbook Your work is so good O:

    The charcoal portrait has really nice form to it and I really like how you used a unusual colour for the background (: And your still lives and life drawing also have great shading, I love how you painted the cloth, it seems so life-like
    I'm gonna watch this thread, you have a lot of skill~ :3

    Thank you! c: It's encouraging to hear you guy's words.

    These are two more from life drawing, the second isn't finished yet, but I think it's one of my better ones.

    I would appreciate any advice or critiques.

    Very cool stuff!
    I'm just starting a life drawing class in couple of weeks, and having major stage fright about it.

    I was kind of terrified too before I went, and I dreaded going to class for 10 or so weeks because things weren't going well in it. But it's really a very fun class. I'm sorry that my schedule won't allow for me to take Life Drawing 2. But there's really nothing to be worried about. It can be really embarrassing at first I suppose since you might not know a lot about the figure and drawing it may be difficult, but the key is to relax. It's one of the most enjoyable classes I've taken.

    Thanks, that sounds very encouraging
    I'm wanting to repeat the Drawing I, our instructor was kind of absent for 4 weeks of it, and we ended up being a whole project behind... only got to do one rather simple charcoal, and very rushed too.

    I love your charcoal drawing, very supple, super well done wrinkles and reflections, and light logic

    @Rena, Thanks! c:

    @ConnieKat8, Whoa! 4 weeks? That's got to suck. D: But thank you, I appreciate it.

    @Aereon, lol that figure kicked my ass when I went to finish it in class the other day. Had to have redrawn it 20 times, but I think you're right. His arm was looking a bit long.

    Well, classes are finally out and I'm so excited to get down to business! This is a page from my Introduction to Sequential final. It's my favourite. I can't wait to start doing independent projects now.
