    Some work I spent time on, but mostly 2-3 minute studies from Sketchbook assignments at Digipen

    Photo taken with a 16 second open shutter exposure. Unaltered other than the editing on the face and addition of the hood. Pretty pleased with how this one turned out

    Hey thanks for your comments guys. I guess I was hesitent about posting my sketchbook work because I don't feel like its up to my full potential. The thing to remember is that I only spend 2-3 minutes on each one of those pieces. Something I could never have done with those results before I got to Digipen. I am really excited for the summer when I'll have a chance to put more focus into each piece.

    yea i've been trying to make it to our drawing lab every thursday, but its frustrating because we don't have anatomy until next semester. they want us to suffer and stuggle so we value the class more i guess. anyway i'll be in there in a couple of months so HOPEFULLY my life drawings will improve a lot

    dude, one thing ive learned at DP, is dont 'wait until we have that class' to learn something, go get some anatomy books start studying, dont let someone else (especially abbott) hold something above your head telling you that they're the only person who can teach it to you, that is just wrong. or tell you that this or that artist is 'ok' to study and that artist is not, you know what you like, go study it, if there is knowlege to be learned then learn it. if i listened or waited till i 'had a class' in something, i wouldnt know 90% of the shit im doing. dont wait for it, go out and get it man, lifes too short to be waiting around. sorry, i have many issues with school lately.

    its good motivational advice man. i realize education is what you make of it. just being a digipen doesnt mean you'll learn anything, its having the desire to actually learn and improve +work that makes you better. the one really tough thing about going out and finding and learning what I want is that with the load they give us here I'm spending 95% of my time jumping through the hoops. i do still constantly browse around and look at other artists. i have just started reading some of the loomis stuff and am really excited about it, but i agree 100% with you. my biggest issue is just simpley finding time to do it.

    Very abstract, crazy stuff, man! Here's some advice, work from life as much as you can! And do some studies (anatomy, etc.). They'll help! I promise. And remember to form the figure, make it feel three dimensional. Think of it as sculpting clay. Alot of your forms look flat or unnatural. If you try and do it this way it'll help. Keep it going!

Also, the coffee cup has good rendering, but nothing hurts drawing worse than proportional errors, that ellipse needs to be right and the whole composition would be stronger....

    those class sketches are great, keep up the good work...

    thanks bro. after getting away from the piece and coming back to it those flaw stand out like nobody's business. its hard to not get consumed in your own work sometimes. thanks for the pointers. the elipse is really off. i was aware that the ipod appears to be floating. it actually has a plastic clip on piece on the back of it so it is in fact propped up from the notebook a bit, but i didn't capture it very well. also i now notice that the notbook's right side is far too high for the left. thanks for the feed back though. it feels good to be posting in here again.

    Wow, I can really see the progression in your work. You got the hang of digital media really fast, I envy you sooo much. I would say that you might want to try some more full body poses (not nessicarrily nudes, but whole people from top to bottom) since I don't see a lot of them. It might help fill out your portfolio a bit and also is a great way to really work you proportions. I notices that in one of your earlier drawings, the girl looked a bit short in the mid section. Still, you have a beautiful subtlety to your work. Keep cranking them out. As my Senior Studio proff. would say, "More more more, faster faster faster."

    See you areound the .org!

    Masterpug-

    Thanks for stopping by and saying hello. I appreciate your enthusiasm. Most of the illustrations with the black frame are two years old now, and were my portfolio from Montana State Uni to transfer up to the school which I'm currently at, Digipen. Since then I've had a years worth of life drawing labs and an anatomy course. Though I'll be the first to admit I still have major issues with the basics, perspective, the fluidity and overall cohesiveness of my forms and as you pointed out, proportion. It usually takes me a good hour of drawing from the model before I feel like I'm really warmed up and not producing total crap. Usually when I life draw, its on 18x24 newsprint and too big for me to scan here at the house. I think what I'll do is try to remember to jot a few in my smaller sketch book towards the end of each session so at least i have something to show here anatomy/life drawing wise. Thanks again buddy. Creating is sure addicting!!! I can't wait to do more.

    -Anthony
