    My Drawrings (crits pls)

    “All artists are willing to suffer for their work. But why are so few prepared
    to learn to draw?”
    ― Banksy

    Dear Banksy,
    It's my style, don't be hatin'

    My very first sketchbook in all it's failed 1 page glory (dec07-jan08) http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=114384
    My second sketchbook, 4 pages but still lacking (may08-may10) http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=127243

    week 1 of figure drawing in chronological order

    gestures are all 1 minute, otherwise everything is 20-25 minutes

    I haven't been in a legit figure drawing class in 2-3 years so this has been a lot of fun

    The teacher is pushing me to slow down and focus on line, not proportion, construction or values. He isn't my favorite teacher in the world but I certainly try very hard to work on pursuing the things he encourages in class and I hope I'm making obvious progress with them. Are drawings like these appropriate for a college app portfolio or are they not finished enough?

    more figures
    these felt really good and I'm happy with the result, but I do have to acknowledge that I was getting way ahead of myself by trying to tackle value so soon and in 20-25 min poses

    Proportions and linework are awesome; values a little disconnected (I have the same problem).

    Nice work.

    Thinking connects desire with creation.
    How good are you?

    thank you so much, your comments mean a lot to me

    I've taken on mentoring my roommate http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=227475 which has been a lot of fun (for both of us I hope)

    went sketching at The Museum of Natural History with hem and anonanon and others without sketchbook threads, it was really enjoyable and I'd love to do it again (and perhaps not be quite so late )

    -more from the michael hampton book and a couple faces constructed with photo ref
    -buffalo and lions and tourists from the museum of natural science
    -a mule deer

    Did a sketch group thing with a few friends, had a fantastic time and got some great sketches out of it. We took turns posing for each other starting with some shorter poses and working up to a max of 5 minutes. We had a couple fencing sabers and a stool for props and managed to have some fun with the poses just with that. Can't wait to do this again.
