    There is nothing wrong if you've got "horrible addiction".
    Will be worse if you don't use it to develop your skills.
    I'll be waiting for updates!

    hi,

    hey just thought I'd return the favor and try and write something constructive. Hmm.. on your drawings.. it looks like you have pretty confident smooth lines over everything, which is good. But I think on your drawings you should go a step further, and really look at where certain things would overlap.

    For example that girl standing leaning on the side.. do you see how that bent arm that she's resting on.. where it's bent.. u have that line sort of overlapping.. to show the forearm is in front of her bicep? U could use that type of idea more.. in different areas of the human figure.. such as the deltoid. Or around the midsection, to sort of be more descriptive of the figure you are seeing in front of you. You can even exaggerate it a bit.. to increase the feeling of structure. Hmm I hope that makes sense.

    Crap, you are doing all these studies at 15...awesome! Keep them coming. I don't see much gesture drawing hidden underneath your drawings. Try mapping out your subject with some quick loose gestural lines. Then you can go in and refine (don't erase ). I am excited to see you progress.

    Hey there's some nice stuff in here. Good work with the studies, I wish I did em when I was 15. Something that might help you out is really measure the proportions of the drawings before you do any shading. It looks like on some of these the proportions are off but there was a lot of time spent on shading. A lot of people (including myself) do this, so don't sweat it. Just trying to help. If you keep going you'll be just fine.

    Artists do not draw what they see they draw what they know!

    This is particularly true of light and dark values in a drawing and where they are placed.
    You have to learn to see the object as a form with a light side and a dark side. Artist invent their own light source based on the knowledge that down planes and side planes away from the light are dark and up planes and side planes facing the light source are light.
    So determine where the main light source is (or where you would like it to be) and stay true to it!
    Also, the main. or perhaps only, purpose of shading is to create the illusion of volume, that is why I refer to it as shaping not shading.
    Cast shadows should be eliminated or subdued if they don't help describe the forms on which the are cast. (they usually do not)
    Lighting in most conditions is from several sources, this is confusing and softens the form units, it is are job to analyze and simplify the lighting to best portray the form. Again do not draw what you see---see what you draw they way you want to see it.

    Some of these studies are really fantastic. The arms look good, as does the nose and the skull. Can't top Mentler's great advice, so I'll just say to start working on your heads/faces more. It seems to be weaker than your other areas. Over all it's looking good. And at 15! egads, I'm so far behind...

    Keep us updated!

    DVD's

    I am sure your have already done this---if not give it a try!!

    You can stop dvd's anywhere your like - draw a head - or body - get it!

    this is also a great way to do action sequencing. Get movies with period or
    sci-fi stuff---- this object here is to look for poses odd angles ---
    several drawings of the same head at slightly different angles.
    Do not sweat the details add those later---just dig the action--great for the scapes as well!! Remember, screw up a drawing once and it is a mistake, do it 100 times it is a style, do it 10,000 times you are a master, do it 100,000 times and they come and take you away, put you in a straight jacket, and lock you in a little room.

    Bridgman!

    Like the way you are looking at the Bridgman shows you are really seeing it! Also, working directly with pen is great - you have to make the statement!

    OK how do I add a pic to my Id like you have done????



    By the way hits have picked up!!

    Will post some of my old Bridgman shit -- so you can see how I handled it!

    Good stuff! But then, I'm a fan of pen work. I like the confidence of your lines. There's no tentativeness to them, like is seen so often in us unprofessionals. There's nothing there to crit (that I can see) that time and practice won't solve. Good update!
