    My student work (from my first year at Georgetown Atelier)

    Hi folks. I haven't shared my drawings in an online forum in a long long time. I'm excited to do it now. I'm now at my second year in a full time program at the Georgetown Atelier in Seattle (link if anyone is curious what my Atelier is like). I'll be posting my student work here as well as occasional independent work I do outside of school (really excited about that).

    So here are my drawings from my first year of the school.

    stunningly amazing!
    I wish I was going to your school instead! My school, our artists are so lazy and lack talent! I found only a few with true passion for their studies and I'm at pre-portfolio classes. I expected to see more masterpieces by then...
    If this is your first year's work then I can't imagine how you'll be by graduation can't wait to see more!!

    These are beautiful! You are so fortunate to have access to such a top-notch education, and it's clearly something you have a passion for.

    It's like that at a lot of places, I swear. I sometimes feel guilty saying that some artists are "lazy" but you know what, that's what it is.

    Thanks, all! Yeah, I do value my education a lot. It definitely boosted up my skills.
    Before the Atelier I used to do a lot of drawings from imagination. Working from life was new to me, but now I just love it. I love getting a "feel" from the three dimentionality of the figure and how everything is arranged in space.

    I also learned how important it is to have a reference or a model to work from and that's what I plan on doing when I graduate. I might post some of my old old stuff just for fun later on, or I might even make them into HQ paintings.

    Awesome student work you got there man. All of them are great but the second, third and fourth pieces are my favorites, especially the second. Love the volumes. Now show us some imagination stuff!

    Yea! I'd love to see from where you were and your progress since then!

    I'm sure your education is great but even more so probably your work ethic! You'll definitely be ultra great by graduation!

    Wow, beautiful work. Those figures are gorgeous, although the faces feel a little weaker than the rest of the body. (Third one down, the skull's a bit funny and her features seem squished somehow, and on the top one his eyes seem to be at a different angle than the rest of his features.) That's just nitpicking though, it's great stuff.

    Thanks, all.

    I love this forum, so much great art and so many talented people.
    By the way, I'm not looking for critique for my work. I prefer to have only one teacher (my current teacher) and get my feedback from him.

    Say, Revidescent, mind if I blog about one of your digital art paintings? I want to make a blog post showing the difference between a photo and a painting and how a painting enhances it and makes it into art. So I wanted to use your woman in a white dress. Is that fine with you? I'll give a link back to your profile here or your deviant art profile.

    I'll post some of my imaginary work, but I want to get it to the same quality as my student work first. I used to work without any references, straight out of my head (I didn't really get the significance of drawing from life, I thought I could know it all by myself that sort of beginner's BS etc'). Anyway, this is what I could do before my Atelier training and without a reference, it's semi-nice but has a lot of structural problems. Anyway, hope you enjoy it.

    Here are some block-in drawings I've done this year

    Here are some block-ins I've done this year. These are 10 or 20 minute block-in drawings. I don't remember which one is which. These were fun to do. Now I'm into painting longer poses so there will be less drawing this year for me.

    A 4 day monochromatic painting

    I worked on this for about 10 hours on and off for 4 days. This one was a real struggle for me and at some point I just went wild and invented the background (which I love). I had to re-do the face at least 15 times...

    I took the picture with my cellphone.
    I really love painting so far. I love it more than drawing, which I did all of last year.

    I have some better photos of a drawing I did last year at my school. It was a 4 week pose. The medium was soft black and white pastel pencils on toned paper. Attached (bottom) are a couple of shots of it.

    Bellow that is a picture of 2 drawings I did before I joined my school (which is now accepting applications for next year, by the way, if anyone is looking for such an opportunity). Both are mostly based on a photo (I invented the faces a bit).

    2 day study in oil

    This is a tiny painting for a pose I am working on for the next 3 weeks that turned out well. I'm also attaching the drawing.

    I'm trying a different approach to painting this time. Lots of studies from up ahead instead of going straight to the painting, I'll do a wash-in with oil paints with the same colors as the painting will be (meaning, creating a transparent, water-color-like layer before putting in thick paint). I hope it will go well. I haven't painted or drew an old man before. It will be 18X24 inches.

    The background is going to be somewhat different than the hack job in the color study... If it turns out well you might hear from me again in 3 weeks as I post the final painting :-)

    Your drawings look great! You have a really smooth blending style that's really pleasing to look at. Your painting has been improving a lot, too! Particularly the edge play in your painting seems to be improving a lot to me. Definitely keep it up!

    This was a 4 week pose (at my Atelier). Called after the model, 'Randy'.

    My student work (from my first year at Georgetown Atelier)

    I took the bottom one with my cellphone. I'm finally happy with my technique in this painting. Ironically, I think I used this technique because I didn't care so much about the subject.

    A drawing from imagination (I didn't use a reference for this one):
    My student work (from my first year at Georgetown Atelier)

    Did this one from a photo + a little inventing.

    Hope you like it!

    Thank you.

    Here is another painting I finished. This was from a live model, 3 hours every morning for 4 weeks. I took the photo with my cellphone so the quality is not exactly top-notch. I'll post a better picture when I get one.

    It's 24'' X 18'', Oil on canvas board. I named it 'Transient'.

    I graduated from my Atelier! Now I'm finally working on my own things. Fun. (The last two, however, are still stuff I did in the Atelier). The second painting of the nude woman was actually done from a 60 year old model, which I have attempted to make younger in the painting. Never trying that again... Hu!

    Really love the first painting of your last post - there is a spontaneity about it, especially the subjects facial structure which is very pleasing. ENCORE!
