    Hello Jerry! Was just trolling through CA.org forums and saw your post about art school in australia. I'm pretty much in the same boat as you, I started drawing at the beginning of the year. I've just finished my first term at Ashtons this term with David (Briggsy) (I only can afford to do one class a term =/) So if you want hit me up and we can have a chat.
    Ive seen you on the CD forums/livestreams too, seems we have similar goals and interests.

    Keep pushing those values and dont be afraid of softer brushes

    Good steps in the right direction! It's nice to see that you are really trying to understand the forms you are painting rather than only learning to spot the 2D shapes. This will help you a ton when it comes to drawing from imagination. Don't be afraid to really slow down and spend even like a week on a study, One of the biggest limiting factors in beginners is feeling like they go too slow or take too long and rushing to a 'finish' to compensate. I'm sure if you were really critical on yourself you could make one of these screencaps near perfect and learn a ton in the process.

    It's just a suggestion based on some of the atelier philosophy of learning I've picked up in the last year. All in all you're doing great, just keep it consistent and don't get complacent. I don't think you will though, good luck

    Thank you Miles ! today i practice what you said about slowing down and everything come out ALOT easier and nicer ! i also started another screen cap study that im going to spend a whole week on Thank you for looking in at my SB !

    Today i did some pencil study and it was suuuuuper fun ! Slowed right down and focused alot on construction, im starting to think its not drawing itself that is difficult, but its knowledge behind the marks. I was telling someone that i have been drawing alot more lately and they said yeah practicing to get the pencil to move like this * then they did some weird arm gesture haha * ( they are not into art at all )

    and i said its not difficult getting the pencil to do what you want, but knowing why you want the pencil to do that. so i figure its smarter to spend ages drawing one head, and learn as much as you can from it, then drawing 10000000000000000 bad heads to make your SB look fancy. I guess only time will tell haha !

    It is always good to see someone start right from the start

    Just push it, keep it goin , I can see the development already, actually it is not questionable at all, you just need to practice and practice

    oh man thank you ! its such a buzz to hear that im getting better, I love thinking about the future and how you can only always improve ! I think its better then letting those scary thoughts take over of never improving , what am i doing bla bla bla which i have done before !, But open up a sketchbook and we can all work and improve together !!


    Grinding through some more loomis! thinking of new approaches, Trying to create my own, I think that is really the best for learning at the moment. Trying to learn the very specific measured construction and then trying to simplify it, but only once i understand the complex and a Refless girl from imagination, trying to see how much is getting stored in the old Jerry brainnnnnss haha !

    Today rocked ! I got to draw lots and i tried lots of new things DDD i stripped down and drew myself in front of a mirror, It wasnt very comfortable because it was at a dressing table but it helped SOOO Much, i actually think it would be better drawing myself then a model because you feel your own anatomy moving as you move and you understand why that part has moved ! anddd i tried some mass painting ( i think thats what it is calle ) just no lines. my values and colours are still poop but practice practice ! oh and i did some quick colour studies, Not worying about details, trying to see value and colourssszzzz. I also looked at some art that made me day dreaammmmm about the chance that one day i could be that good... maybe haha

    so some more boring anatomy studies,
    Journey from absolute zeroThen the
    Journey from absolute zero

    worlds crappest doodle

    Journey from absolute zero

    Journey from absolute zero

    then i decided i wanted to learn some perspective, so worked out the horizon and blocked in some basic values, but was not going to spend time rendering, then i started another study but realized the reference for the study was bad because it was super over exposed and there is no point learning that... i think :o

    sooo then i did some self portraits, the first one made me veryyyy dissapoint..

    Journey from absolute zero

    So i said dear face, im going to draw the shit out of you .. again, and worked on it again before bed

    Journey from absolute zero

    then made it scary !

    Journey from absolute zero

    then just... eh i dont know haha

    thank you for the very kind words i am very excited to become a good artist ! lets all bussttt butt and get there haha!


    So i had a few days where i could barley draw at all which sucked and put me in a bad mood haha, So its been a little slow trying to get the ball rolling again. Basically just some studies, crapy doodles and trying new things. Like 100 opacity things some more. I also realised i sucked really bad at painting, but then though i had not really dont much painting. so ill need to work on that over the next few weeks.
