Thread: cas's fine art

Just posted my latest drawing on TSOFA. There you can see my progress dating back to September 2004.
I highly recommend reading through John Ruskin's book (mentioned above).

Chris you are awsome! That last sketch looks terrific, and the painting is coming so nicely, I'm really impressed! A huge jump from the stuff I saw hiding in your sketch book last year, u must be practicing all the time!
Well I won't drop any crits right now cause like you said you've already critiqued your self and know what to do, which is good!
I'm gonna start a thread soon, you've inspired me! Plus I just bought a bitchin scaner!
Keep'em commin cas! Good work.

Thanks for the encouragement, Chucky, although I'd be happy to hear some C+C's. Especially ragarding shading as this is something I need more practice at, so any advise would be appreciated.
Yeah, I've been devoting a fair amount of time to my art, although nothing compared to someone like Android! I was doing 2 whole days of life painting and one evening, leading up to Christmas. This year will be a little toned down because of money so I'm only doing one day per week of life painting and a half-day drawing. Saying that, I'm going to have my garage converted into a studio, where I hope to paint every day. Hope that gets sorted soon!
By the way, I'm not sure if I already told you, but I'm moving to the character team next week so I'll be doing something much more interesting than football stadiums!
Anyway, looking forward to seeing your work up on the forum!
Plus, hope your work and RAD is going well?

As Mentler said, good to see you painting as well!
Real good figure and life drawings so far! You should update more often, man! I'd love to see more of your work.
Keep it up! I plan to check back often for updates!

although your sketches are a bit rough,
u seem to have a good hand when it goes about painting/coloring
In fact, when those sketches are just underpainting-sketches it doesn´t matter how they look like... they just have to be accurate... which they are!
Wanna see more...!

Hey there Chris, It was cool meeting you the other week. I stick by being impressed by your paintings. Especially like the lighting on the woman against the table.
Your recent drawing is very good as well, I think it could be improved if you massed in some tone for the background even if its just dark space, since you have toned the cusions. Its hard to see a separation between the model and the cusions. Maybe if you hatched the cusions in a completly opposed direction to how you do it on the model. Maybe there are other ways to show a separation
I always like to see people going at it of their own will. Personally this website has lead me to making progressions I couldnt have hoped for from my current art course. However what you said about choosing fine art has stuck with me and I will keep this in consideration.
Oh and I hope you get your garage studio, keep it up!

Damn, these are so cool! I'm really liking the colors on the painted stuff too.
I dunno how long you been drawing and paint but this is a real good start.
I really look forward to seeing more.

Thanks All. I'd be happy to post more of my work although I'm not sure whether it's worth posting stuff which I'm not, in any way, happy with. Or is it worth posting most things up nonetheless?
Thanks for the feedback, Harry. Yeah, some of the things you suggest did go through my mind but I ran out of time before I could develop the drawing further. Despite running out of time, I suppose I should have done something to balance/un-balance the tones overall. I'm also wondering whether I could have done something more with the composition whilst keeping the whole figure on the page.
Good to hear your thoughts on a degree in Fine Art. Some of the recent portfolios I've seen at work have very little computer work and are, instead, full of fine art drawings and paintings.
I've decided to scale down my garage conversion project but it should be finished by the following weekend. I hope.

Here are some drawings from today where we were learning about Degas approach to developing composition.
C+C, as always, hugely welcome and apologies for the poor scans.
Here's a quick composition study using three of the above drawings.

Work has been so busy these past few months, plus the fact I'm only enrolled on one painting course instead of three, has meant I'm not doing much of my own work. Hence the even slower drip of new posts on this thread.
Here's a recent drawing I did during a lesson on composition.
You'll have to pardon the 'piggified' nose (I should step back from my drawing more often and take a serious look at what I'm actually putting down on paper!).
C+C always welcome.
