Late Nights and No Sleep
Hey! Hi, I'm a long-time lurker. Figured I'd finally grow a pair and join the community. Thus, the sketchbook! My name is Beola and I'm an 18-year old Visual Arts student at a community college, currently in my first year. I've been drawing since the age of 3, but it started out as a hobby for the most part. I decided to get serious about it in 8th grade, and I got my ass kicked into shape during high school. I'm still getting my ass kicked into shape. I'm not "disciplined" enough, and I'm majorly inspired by a lot of members here. I'll use that as momentum to keep going!
I did want to go to School of Visual Arts, Pratt, or what have you, but I can't afford it. I planned on majoring in 3D Animation, but instead of going to an expensive-as-hell art school, I'm thinking about transferring to a 4-year SUNY college, doing workshops and taking individual classes.
In any case, any and all critiques are welcome! I'm looking forward to it and I'm also looking forward to meeting new people!
Gonna start out with a man I spontaneously drew on the bus to school and some studies that I did not too long ago, mainly Loomis and Bridgman.Next up will be still-life contours.
Sorry for the occasional suckage in quality. My scanner ain't all that sexy.

Ven S: Thank you! I'll definitely be posting more. Hopefully everyday. xD
Still-life contour assignments! Done with marker. These were super fun to do and I learned a lot.

Bah! Some studies I did last night. I'm trying to get the hang of painting digitally. Not too bad-ish. Lastly, a character I've been working on for a small bit.
I'll be posting up more after I return home from my brother's wedding! Hopefully it doesn't last more than 3 ~ 4 hours. x.x

Midterm week is coming up, so I've been studying heavily. I apologize for the lack of activity. >.<
A couple of doodles I did in 2D Design class, and some Bridgman studies.

Whoo! I really need to update much more frequently. D:
1) Tyler, a character I drew last November. I'll get back to her eventually, whenever that may be.
2/3) Started to do hand studies and then female torso studies. Fun, fun.
4) I sketched these up last night in Photoshop without any refs. I'm actually quite proud of 'em. ;_;
5) Doodled a not-so-serious SP in my drawing class last semester during break.

A few more torso studies (crappy scanner, my bad). Got a little bored with that and decided to try my hand at digital painting using refs. I used Paint Tool SAI for the bird and Photoshop for the eye. I'm not sure which program I enjoy using the most. I'm sort of leaning toward Photoshop because I'm more familiar with it, but SAI is pretty fun.
I'll attempt digi painting the human figure tonight, after class. Speaking of class, spring semester just started and I'll be taking Painting I, Drawing II, and Art History. @_@
I'll explore more active poses with the female warrior down there too. Seems a little boring, don'tcha think? I can't be afraid!

Yay college! :D
I have more studies that I've done and fun doodles, but I shall scan those later. For now, I leave you with this! A homework assignment done for my Drawing II class. My phone camera is poot, so I apologize if the quality is a little derp.

Ooooh man, Drawing II is trying to kick my butt! I mean, it's kicking my butt, but in a good way. It's all beneficial in the end, and quite fun. But dayum, on 24x36 drawing paper? Killer, yet very enjoyable.
Apologies that I haven't gotten around to scanning in my sketchbook stuff. I've gotten into the habit of sketching people wherever possible. Fun fun!

you're so good at anatomy I'm jealous. How did you get so good, book?, how much time? also I'm loving the last still life =)
Wisdoms dawns the veil of pain,

Hey fellas! Sorry about not getting back to you sooner.
Artpotion: Thank you. I'm still working on making it muscle memory, y'know? I studied from books by Bridgman, Loomis, and now Hogarth. But in my opinion, studying from life is the best. Using the books to locate the underlying structure of the human form during figure drawing sessions is super helpful.
Kauil: Thank you, but I'm still not dishing out as many studies as I want. Getting there though. And about the digital paintings... I want to get a hang of painting traditionally before jumping into the digital medium.
1) The current assignment for Drawing II, keeping track of progress made.
Everything else: recent pages from my sketchbook. Most are from imagination, and others are people I drew on the bus. Bumpy, bumpy roads... Oh well!
