    Hapless Slapdashery

    Posting here is so intimidating but here I go. Mostly just scribbles and studies, seems like that's all I really do. I've never really had any criticism of the stuff I've drawn except from myself. So, uh... hi.

    Original post images are on page 2 now

    Finally back to post more. Really wish it hadn't been so long. Hasn't been good times... I'm going to post more often in this sketchbook from now on!

    The strawberries are my very first acrylic painting. It's on a 5x7 canvas panel. The still lifes I did last night, going to be doing more of those tonight as well. I'm hoping they'll help me improve more quickly. Pencil stuff is just a new attempt.

    These aren't sad scribbles, they're nice! I especially like your figure studies and poses

    Great sb! Love the Gameboy and candy wrappers. Your gestures are great, too. Keep 'em coming!

    Thanks for the comments!

    I only managed to do two more quick still life studies. Still going to do more of them. Decided to take a bit of my own advice from my post in Burnme's sketchbook. I don't do enough stuff from imagination at all, especially not figures. I'm going to work on doing way more of these in the future as well. I have quite a ways to go, haha. Critique would certainly be appreciated.

    Another acrylic painting I've been working on. Just messing around with different techniques to see how it worked out. I think I've only spent a couple hours on this so far. Technically this is my third acrylic painting... or second and a half. I have one shoved away I need to get back to.

    Some new still lifes. Trying something new by setting up red, green, and blue panels around the objects to get color reflections. Also a bit of an update on the flower painting.

    Working on a big set of imagination-figure studies that I don't want to post until done too.

    Weird... why did my attachments vanish?

    Your use of colour is lovely - especially those strawberries. Lovely to see someone using real media!

    Thanks for the support, everyone. I've been trying to be more colorful in my paintings for awhile. Planning to try some acrylic still lifes sometime as well.

    All I've got for now is a still life of a bottle of Snapple; not too pleased with it.

    I think the problem with the bottle is that the lettering doesn't wrap around the bottle, it's just kinda flat, which conflicts with the bottle's shape.
