    I haven't posted in a long time so here is an update. I'm now living back in the united states and am attending a classical art atelier. I'm really liking it so far and feel that I'm learning a lot. Here are some thing's I've done so far in school, we haven't gotten into rendering yet so all of these are ether block ins or value studies. As always, critiques are much appreciated.

    Thanks for the sketchbook comment, OakLeaf. Your atelier work is looking great! I think it really took a lot of guts to go sit in the Louvre and draw, not knowing french (or drawing.) You definitely taught yourself some things by doing that.
    It took me like three hours to finish the shading on your upper lip. It's probably the best drawing I've ever done.



    My sketchbook (it'll get good near the end)

    Thanks! I think just being around really good art is what helped me the most. I leaned what quality art is supposed to look like, so now I know what to strive for.

    Quick self portrait sketches with crayola crayons. I haven't used crayons since the second grade! I kind of liked them.

    Just now I went through some of your artwork, and even though I was a bit skeptical when looking at some of your earlier studies, now I can honestly say that you are improving-- and that shouldn't be a big surprise to anyone, as people -do- improve when they stay consistent on a certain subject. It's just the way our brain works-- or muscles. It depends a lot on how you spend your time studying art. Do you just draw something over and over until it looks good? Or do you look into human anatomy and actually study what length and size everything should be-- how they bend and whatnot? Now that's not an actual question which I'd be seekin' an answer to, I'm just going over this-- thing.

    Either way, I'll try to keep this short. You have improved but your sense of anatomy still has it's flaws, but who am I to say? My sense of anatomy is quite terrible. Much worse than yours. But what I love about your work, is your use of lighting. You really, really, really know how to do that, haha. I don't think I'll be able to pull that off in a long while, mainly since I'm more centered around landscapes rather than anatomy and all that jazz, even though I wish I could expand my range of knowledge and just-.. "doing" of things.

    But, great work! Study, work. You'll be great.

    Bargue plate number 7. This took way to long.. And I'm still not very happy with how it turned out. I think there's a few little things I can improve on it but I just had to post it right now aso I can move on!

    Ehecod: Thanks! And yes, I know that my sense of anatomy still has many flaws but at least it's a bit better than before!

    Tweakfox: Thanks! I'm happy that people can see an improvement.
