    Finished painting plus sneak peak of a new one--update 7-3-10

    Ok, a couple of people at the sf workshop were getting on my case because I don't post much artwork.
    So I'll try to post a few things here. Hopefully I can keep adding to it.

    I did this a couple of weeks ago.
    Nupastel on coldpress watercolor paper.
    Finished painting plus sneak peak of a new one--update 7-3-10

    People seemed to like this drawing from my portfolio.
    Nupastel on newsprint.
    Finished painting plus sneak peak of a new one--update 7-3-10

    This is an old image that I did when I was in school.
    I had it kicking around so I threw it in my portfolio--mostly for myself so I could think about the differences between the way I drew then and the way I draw now.
    Nupastel on vellum.
    Finished painting plus sneak peak of a new one--update 7-3-10
    I think back then, I could give the appearance of good structure, but I wasn't really thinking about it.
    I was just drawing what was in front of me.
    Now, I'm really interested in structure and often prefer my structural drawings over my more rendered stuff.

    Cool stuff. They have a nice feeling of "weight" to them. Your rendering is way better than mine so I can't crit that - the last guy there has really nice values IMO.
    For some reason the first woman's stomach looks more like cloth than folds of flesh, I can't really figure out why ... maybe it's just my screwed up brain

    Keep it up!

    PS. Were you one of the 14 who had dinner at that crazy Chinese restaurant with the rotating table, the night before the workshop? I think I was sitting a couple of people left of you.

    cool civilwar soldier. The lower half of the face and the cloth is very nice.

    I remember watching over your should while you were doing some life drawing. Then you left. Ron walked over, picked up Foster's sketchbook and after finishing looking at it, saw your spot open, shrugged and sat down and started drawing.

    Hope to see more soon.

    coolness. I've often wondered what your art looked like.
    Enjoyed the creativity of your mind in the lounge discussions for long enough to be interested in the creativity in your art!

    keep it regular!

    emily, these are really nice, especially the first of the three. you have a very good understanding of value shapes, and this makes your drawings really POP. keep posting more and i'll keep checking.

    Thanks so much for the replies and comments, everyone. They make me so happy!

    I miss all my friends from the workshop. I had a dream the other night that you all came to stay at my house . . . and we went rollerblading . . . and I was an awesome rollerblader . . . then I knew it must be a dream Ďcause I canít skate.

    MoP, thatís a legitimate comment about the fleshóI guess it just looks that way sometimes. Yes, that was me at dinner--the one with the long blond hair sitting a couple seats to the right of you.
    hito, thanks! Yes, I donít mind if Ron wants to draw on my newsprint pad!
    Groover, thanks, it was really great to meet you. Perhaps Iíll post some childrenís stuff sometime.
    NoUse, aha, thanks for complimenting my mind! I enjoy discussing things with you, too.
    artkitty, thanks so much! Glad I got to hang out with you a lot in sf.
    cartoonfox, ah, Iíll never be able to keep up with your insane sketchbook frequency! I live in Utah, about 1 Ĺ hours by plane from SoCal. But if you come down to San Diego, youíll be a lot closer than in Wales!
    jetpack, so happy I got to meet you. Maybe my sketchbook stuff posted here will appease you.
    Sketch, thanks! Iíll try to keep it worthy of watching.
    cotron, glad I got to meet you, Cody. Yes, I had tons of fun in sf, and Iíll try to keep up the posts.
    cburt, thank you very much for the comments. Hereís another post for you to look at.
    gabo, thanks so muchóif only I had half the dedication that you do!
    burning eyes, I remember seeing you on the last night in the Galleria lobby. But I was wiped out by thenóI mostly sat in the chair like a blob and listened to you guys quote Napoleon Dynamite.
    mentler, sure thing! It was great to meet you and see your drawings up close!
    oDD, thank you, and Iíll try.
    Black_neon, hehe, thanks, life drawing is the best!
    corky13, thanks for the comment, I hope the wait wasnít too long.
    hurricane, hey, thanks! I have some gestures to post this time.
    Bojee, errrgh, arrrgh, how come I didnít meet you! Thanks, and Iíll have to catch you at the next workshop.
    RES, great to see you here, Ryan. Iíd love to see what kind of stuff you post up.
    Prostate, it was great meeting you, too, even though you were embarrassed to tell people your online handle, hehe.

    Okay, Iím glad I brought my big newsprint pad to the workshop, though I wish I had gotten some more sustained drawing done. The models were changing so quick I mostly got gesture-stuff. I shouldíve stolen somebodyís easel . . .

    i was reallly happy to meet you too. its so great to be able to put a person with a name, and a cool person at that!

    now you've given us a little taste....if you don't keep appeasing us at semi-regular intervals, we'll become an angry mob soon enough! beware!

    hurricane, thanks, Iím glad you like them! Thanks for stopping by!
    pvpham, hey thanks for the comments! Nupastel is just a particular brand of pastel you can buy.
    steak-tron, thank you very much, sir. ďChiselĒ is such a great way to describe itósometimes I feel like Iím sculpting with the chalk.
    chaotic logic, thanks so much and thanks for looking!
    jetpack42, oh no, what have I done? I donít want any angry mobs! Hehe, hopefully sf will not be the last time we meet.
    bojee, thanks for taking a look at my little thread. Maybe one day I can have a thread like yours.

    Ok, hereís a few little things.
    This is something I did for fun in a more childrenís book style.

    Hey Emily! Didn't I work with you at Waterford? Great stuff here, I love your figurative work and it reminded me of BYU illustration...then that Dragon I think I remember before I left.

    Keep up the great work! Post more!
