    AC's sketchbook

    [Not NSFW at the moment, but tagged for probably future nudity.]

    Hi, I'm AC
    I feel like I'm plateauing in my art so I made this account hoping for inspiration and motivation mostly. Some personal items which I need to remind myself to practice in particular are as follows (list will be updated as needed): <b>environments<b>, color, mood, space relationships (in life drawings especially)

    Crit is always appreciated!


    --
    I will scan some paper stuff in a moment, until then

    I went to go scan stuff but couldn't find anything besides the stuff on my desk. I need to buy a new sketchbook, there's just loose papers everywhere. Jeez...

    Everyone on this website is so skilled and motivated, and then here I am, already returning to the seductive embrace of monochromatic busts. This is a self portrait by the way.

    I was stuck in a tiny hotel room with horrible internet connection so I kind of just ended up drawing whatever was in my line of sight.

    2. Draw a figure using a reference - link to reference
    I decided to try something different than usual: charcoal

    Also, I'm pretty sure no one reads this, but on the off chance that somebody is, any tips on the nuances of properly sealing with hairspray would be magnificent because I think I screwed up when I tried to seal this. It worked but the moisture made the paper do that wavy thing that paper tends to do when it gets wet then dries :/

    3. Draw a figure that’s in action, using a reference - link to reference
    Additional experimentation with hairspray has yet to yield desired results. Not sure if it's the paper or the spray itself.

    The weirdest thing I could see from my chair is this half finished puppet-head I was sewing a while ago. I really need to finish this guy...

    I would have liked to experiment more with this, but I have had so much crap to do lately. I will probably come back to this, though. Well, not this, but I want to draw more candles

    Love the 30 day challenge thing! diversifying your stuff is smart, and it's really give your sketchbook a strong front page

    #8 is great - really wonderful gesture there, and #3 is a better self portrait than the cartoon - even if you look like a psycho ^_^

    Remember, sketchbook isn't about pretty- it's about learning. So far I think you're off to a great start!

    Hehe, I am really liking this sketchbook so far. Your self-portrait is so beautiful, as you say I am feeling myself seduced by the expression on your face

    I'm supposed to be planning for a sculpture for AP art that uses symbolism to describe a transition in our lives and I wasn't really sure where I was going with this until I realized I might be able to fill my own head with plants. Gonna have to talk to my teacher about that one though...ha
