    Jared Blando's Sketchbook ***TheRedEpic***

    Hey all,

    I decided to start a sketchbook thread to post random work, thoughts, or exercises that i've done in my sketchbook(s). Since i work constantly on maps and cartography in the industry, its been difficult to maintain drawing and figurative work. I thought this would be a good way of keeping things fresh Crits welcome of course. Thanks in advance.

    Some tonal work on a woman's face. I've always found women's faces difficult because of the softness of the features. I tend to have a linear, heavy hand, so this type of stuff really forces me to look at tackling a drawing a different way.

    Great sketches you seem to use the pencil in a very clean way (... so total opposite of me, oh oh). I'd love to see a bit of colours on some, sometime !

    Update #2 5.6.2012

    Thanks for the comments guys, i appreciate it

    I just did dome life drawing for the first time in a few months, and i'm out of practice. However it was great to get back in the seat again! I'm trying to make this a weekly thing, and though 2 hours of life drawing a week is hardly enough, its all i have for right now

    Update #3 5.18.2012. Journal entry #1

    Some marines i was drawing yesterday for the hell of it.

    Had an all time art low yesterday. Dunno if any of you have had it before, but i think its the worst feeling in the world. Not sure if i am a figurative guy stuck in a cartographers body, but my map work just doesn't satisfy me any more and i need to break out. After 4 years continuously in the industry, its getting to me, and i think i need a fundamental career switch from maps (which is my bread an butter) into more conceptual work (which i enjoy).

    Anyways sorry for the ramble, enjoy marines

    Update #3 6.9.2012. Life Drawings

    So i hadn't been to life drawing in about a month, so i went this sunday for 2 hours. My first drawing was ok, but i was certainly rusty, so i concentrated on the models face, which has always been a rough spot for me. Here are 2 drawings from the session, a 20 minute and 30 minute respectively.

    It was a alot of fun but i had to shake off some cobwebs!
