    I love your work, it's all very strong and dynamic. Very expressive stuff, especially the really sketchy stuff, I like that stuff the most.

    I think you are on the right track with the values.

    And the sleeping pig is just too cute
    I know that it´s very challenging to draw animals, as most won´t keep the same position for more than a few seconds.... So: cool stuff.

    Spacemanchris - Thanks a lot for the compliments. I like the rougher work, too.

    Johnny78 - Thanks, I enjoyed doing the value studies. The pigs were really cute, until some annoying kids started making noise until they woke them up, so they got all grumpy
    I really loved drawing those animals, I'm gonna have to come back there when I can.
    This Thursday Im actually going to see the Body Worlds 2 show at the science centre. That'll be fun to draw, too!

    Here's some stuff I did today

    No model in life drawing, so we did a sketch of one of the classmates. I focused on the value of the face and the likeness, and am happy with it.


    These two were quick self-portraits. I like the first one, it has good value. The second one was too rushed, so I messed the proportions. Gotta learn to slow down once in a while.



    Thanks for all the comments and critiques so far everyone, it really encourages me to work more!

    That Fat Kid - Thanks, recently I've been using HB pencils exclusively, but I've noticed that different brands of pencil create different looks and effects. Right now I'm mainly using KohiNoor pencils, both regular graphite and the woodless progresso pencils, they layer lighter than staedtler but can still achieve the same darkness. The paper is just a regular cheapo Canson sketchbook.
    I like the gestural lines, too. They often look better than the final rendered drawing because they are so loose.

    thejester - Thanks, sometimes I think I may draw a bit too much. I tend to go through a 100 page sketchbook every 2-4 weeks


    Unto today's stuff!

    BodyWorlds 2 was freaking awesome! I have to come back there again, since this time we had an assignment mostly involving gestures...
    There was some really interesting stuff, and no time to draw it all. Here is most of the work, I didnt include some of the really rough crappy gestures, just the decent to good stuff.

    This next one is a page of sketches of people blocking my view from drawing the above figure. That'll teach em!

    This last one was an experiment I did at home after the show. I did a light, rough selfportrait, then using an anatomy book, a mirror, and by feeling the bones of my face created the bone structure. The parts I feel are most accurate are the jaw, teeth and eye areas.


    And thats all for today folks! Thanks for looking!

    Haha, you're right about the skeleton looking like Calvin! Now I can't stop noticing it.

    I actually do post almost all of my sketchbook drawings. The only ones I skip are the odd stray doodles that don't represent the work that I do and that I strive for, and have faults that I'm aware of. Basically, its only the really really crappy work that I don't post, since all this work is in my online gallery.

    I had a lot of trouble with getting proportions to look right in these studies actually. Partially because I'm not use to drawing these kinds of poses, partially since I needed to do them fairly quickly so I could move on. Didnt have time to touch up details. I plan on going there again sometime this or next month, and doing fewer studies so I can do a better job.
    Thanks for constantly coming back to look, comment and critique man, I really really appreciate it.

    You seem to notice all the problems you need to work on, that's an important skill. What I think you should do is, in any drawing where you notice problems, do another drawing of the same thing and fix those problems. The main issue I'm noticing is proportion, the first division to memorize is between upper body and lower, which is just to split them in half. The pubis is the halfway point. Practice dividing a line in half by eye, and for figures in perspective it's just the familiar dividing a rectangle in half. Also remember hands are about the size of the face.
    A drawing that's particularly successful is on Nov. 8, the hand that's inked and pinkish watercolored. Play around with that technique some more.

    You surely draw a lot.This is good .I like those flowers on the first page.
    Maybe in some drawings you could push the lights and darks - to avoid drawing the whole picture in half tone.
    And I like that you are brave to experiment with different mediums

    Thanks for all the comments everyone!

    Armando - Thanks, I agree that I have trouble with proportion. Especially with legs, I should dedicate some attention specifically to that area. That watercolour hand was interesting to do, I was painting the sepia straight into the pinkish tones. I'll try and play with it more.

    arghmisfit - Thanks for the kind words. You should really try and check out the show if you can make it. I'm definitely coming back when I have spare time.

    shyamshriram - Thanks a lot man, thats one of my fav self-portraits, too. :p
    I noticed I dont do enough nature drawings. I plan to rectify this ASAP.

    heartbeat - Thank you. I have been using the HB a bit too much, should probably move up a notch to push the values more. I've partially been experimenting with using lighter, flatter shadows, but I should go back in to stronger value. I'm glad you like the medium experiments, its always fun to just sit down and play around with different ways of making marks on a surface.

    Okay, a few more pages for today. Since that fat kid asked for it, I'm going to post everything, including some rougher work. We'll see how that goes.

    Just some general sketches in art class. We were eating mandarins, I had some fun drawing the skin all coiled up. The figure in the top left is actually a memory exersise. Before class I was watching a person holding up a tape recorder, then attempted to redraw it later from memory.

    People and things in animation class

    No model in life drawing, drew classmates again

    Fairly quick sketch of the spray bottle I use when painting with acrylic

    Hands

    Quick figure sketches, trying to figure out pose for later drawing.

    And finally, a study of a horse from an animal anatomy book I took from the library.


    If weather and homework permits, tomorrow Im going down to a park to draw, so I should have some perspective and nature drawings. On sunday I'm hoping to go downtown to draw the St. James Cathedral. Should be challenging.

    Heroic - Thanks. I do many experiments dude, which one do you like.

    That Fat Kid - Thanks, I plan on doing a LOT more memory exercises, theyre fun and very helpful. I know what you mean about the spray bottle, I'm gonna start going in with darker pencils from now on to push the values more. Thanks for coming back again

    More stuff from today, went for a walk, stopped by local park and went around a construction yard. Here are the sketches I did:

    people in park

    Tree

    More park


    Construction equipment


    Attempt at freehand perspective. I need a lot more practice. Couldn't finish this one, hand went numb in the cold

    I'm gonna do more sketching tonight, now its unto homework!

    hey, nice sketches! Sketching from life is really cool, and the construction equipment is my favorite here : )

    Well I know sketchbooks are for sketches, but the only crit (or not really a crit, just a wish) is to see more finished stuff, like the horse study. Also try to push the values more, make the darks darker and the lights lighter.
    EDIT: or, you can change that by adjusting the brightness/contrast in an image editing program like photoshop.

    Cheers, keep posting!

    Wow, lotsa replies! Thanks everyone, you're all very encouraging!

    That fat Kid - Thanks, those sketches were fun to do. I'm going to be doing a lot more similar work, I feel ive become more confident with doing sketches like that.

    Interceptor - If I'm an animal, you're some kind of indescribable beast! Thanks!

    Alday.J - Thanks a lot. By sports ones, I assume you mean the ones at the bodyworks show, those were probably my favorite, too.

    HEROIC - Hehe, sorry for not telling you, i wasn't planning on because of the weather, but this was a last-minute decision since I had to go to the library to return all my anatomy books

    bRØk3n_sPiRiT - Thank you, I do intend on doing more finished work, especially now that I have to get a portfolio prepared. There have been a lot of crits on me needing to do darker value, meaning I DEFINITELY need to get to work on that now.

    These are sketches I did last night, but didnt get around to scanning:
    Self Portrait I tried to do without lifting pen from the page. Messed up proportioons:

    Value study of a bottle of turpentine. Pushed the darks a little but, but could do it more

    Nude study from photo reference. I think I got the proportions right for once.

    Watercolour skintone study from reference. Overall, pretty messed up, but the skintones themselves are good.

    And finally, a chalk pastel self-portrait. I'll try and do a better one later.

    I like your sketches with construction equipment and perspective. They're very quick but give lots of information about the object/place. The last ones are nice too.
    Keep posting .

    Yeah, exactly what I mean... or try to say. My english is "off" sometimes, so forgive me for that kind of imprecision/mistake. Well there's a lot of new stuff, you're an animal, Interceptor is right on that point. I really need to do more studies like you did. You blow my eyes with your stuff ! Keep posting the good stuff, my friend !

    Hello sir, nice to see you're doing lots and lots of studies. They kinda show up a little bit grey... try adjusting levels in photoshop to make your marks more clear in the digital world? I love that sheep with the funny cloak. Keep it up!

    Thank you everyone!

    Heroic - Hey man, I know what you mean about the flatness. I'll do a better one soon.

    Farvus - Thanks, I enjoyed drawing the construction equipment. Gonna go back to the site the next warm day and try to do longer/closer studies.

    Alday.J - Thanks a lot for the compliments!

    Heartbeat - Thank you, I've been trying to improve my line quality lately, I still think its too messy with too many useless lines.

    Stuff from today and yesterday. Updates will be probably be erratic for a while now, almost the end of the term, lotsa stuff due! >_<

    Bought a new fountain/nib pen, been having fun with it.
    Subway sketches


    Went downtown with Heroic to the St. James cathedral. I did two very quick sketches, it was waaay too cold that day. I didnt notice the skewing until I scanned it



    More sketchery

    Figuring some stuff out


    Experimenting with rendering, aside from a few annoyances, i think it turned out well

    More classmates. I must seem like the creepiest guy, just sitting there sketching people

    The naked asian guy #88 wierded me out when I first saw it, I thought they were having you draw freshmen in lifedrawing class, I assume your in highschool which you may have said already. The lifedrawings are excellent, screwy proportions and all.

    when i look from beginning to the present, id say that this sketchbook has undergone quite an evolution. your style has only gotten better, as has your skill. its something to be admired, the way you work, as it seems your commitment to drawing is absolute. with out question. i enjoy you graphites and some of the inks, but the colored peices are really something. youll only become greater with every finished page. dont stop the work.

    the very best to you,

    Woodruff
