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.

Wow!!! all i can say is wow!! I'm not anybody but I'm very impressed with your work!! Its so detailed and realistic. And that's exactly how I am, I love fine detail. this is wonderful!!! I will be subbing your sketchbook would love to keep an eye on you and your work!! Keep it coming!!
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!!
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.
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.
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.
