    super sleepy

    Bogan - Yeah, controlling the values in my images is a big thing I am trying to work on. Something I think was taking for granted for a while. Back to basics! to build a foundation, on which to CRUSH!

    bobmeatbag - Thank you! I checked out your sketchbook earlier, and your gestures are coming along really really well, just keep at it!

    Hey it's 2:00am! I'm sleepy and it's sleep time now. I was going to go to sleep earlier but then Dan started streaming in the danger room and I got motivated to keep pushing! Which is awesome. So I did these. This is me trying to do life drawing digitally. I've only ever done gestures with pencil or conte before so It was fun not getting dirty! I still tried to treat it like traditional media so no erasing! I'll have to play with this more, it was fun!

    I love the life studies - you have a good understanding of drawing form, and the colors and values make the drawings glow.

    Greatttt work. very nice style, really liek your self portrait, using those otter guys for gestures is awesome and your life drawings are really great too, your solidity and value is very neat.
    Looking forward to more. Maybe try some environments? Cant think much to critique.

    Wow, I really dig your mark making, paints or pencil. Super gestural forms and brush strokes, all around. I don't think you can ask for a better foundation for pushing forward in your work. Nice start!

    Nice life drawings.
    Thinking connects desire with creation.

    111108 Just home from class, getting ready to CRUSH IT

    Hey guys, thank you all for the kind words!

    I am so pumped to get better and improve! I have been coming up against a lot of walls lately in my art, but I'm not finding it discouraging these days. Frustrating yes, but not discouraging. so the only place to go now is FORWARD! Towards crazy unrealistic goals and dreams just out of reach! If you haven't checked out the Deathline over at CrimsonDaggers DO IT!

    Here's the current state of my creature design. Down to massaging the hell out of it before moving forward with texturing and finalizing the environment it's in. Trying to render forms in space while considering value, colour temperature, composition, focal points, and technique is tough but also kind of meditative! Really trying to push myself farther with every image these days. Gotta step it up, gotta' CRUSH IT!

    111112 crushin time again!

    Hello!

    I have not posted for the last three days, but I HAVE been CRUSHIN'!~

    I'll post the sketches I did at the Royal Winter Fair here in Toronto later, but for now, here's a study I did tonight... this morning?

    I've been trying to do darker images in my studies just to get a feel for pulling a range of colours and values out of a limited scale. SO~ I've learned a bunch about greys and value with this, and also some about modelling! I haven't done these in the past because I didn't see much value to them, but the folks at Crimson Daggers changed my mind, and now I'm exited to do loads of them! Learning a ton!

    CRUUUUUSH IT!

    111113 Crushn'

    SO!

    Here's a still life I've done as part of the weekly CRUSH we're trying to do. I didn't get to finish it, but I'm verging on taking this beyond a study if I spend any more time on it. I've learned a lot from doing this, but I need to focus on getting the most out of my studies and getting as much out of my time as possible.

    The Deathline is super intense, and I am super pumped to do it. I am going to have to zero in on three goals this week and set up some quantitative short term goals that I can CRUSH!

    Absolutely amazing studies! You have a nice understanding of form and lighting. it's impressive. I might suggest doing some work on lines though. Great work!
