    Hey hey.

    Aw, no nudity?

    Anyway. Nifty stuff you have here. I think the Brucel Willis one looks odd because you drew it from a picture eh? It's normal..happens to me too..much better to draw from life to begin with.

    Try spending more time polishing your stuff though, bringing out shadows and highlights to give everything more volume and life. Take one of your portraits and try spending more itme defining th shapes with shadows until it doesn't look like a line drawing at all, and it's all shapes.

    The cats are cute. And I like the hand sketches a lot too. Make more!

    Draw longer. I can't stress this enough. And you need to fix your shadows. It's mostly around the same tone. You need more variance in them. Again, draw longer. I'm seeing a heavy emphasis on line. If you're gonna do that, give it varying line weight. Not just solid lines all over the place. But if you want realism, it's all about the shadow shapes.

    Call it a test of patience. Take 3-4 hrs and draw a self portrait. No more quick sketches cause you will not advance as much as you will with a longer drawing. You can't hope to consistantly create a good quick sketch until you can master the long drawing.

    Well, the scanner itself makes the piece lighter, so it's one of those looks better in real life things. But I really need to take more time. I try to, but 1) I can't find a model for long enough,
    and 2)when I am drawing ymself I can't help but to sketch and do it quickly, I dont know why, I try nott o. But next weekend I am going on an art spree cuse I got about 80 bucks.

    Hey buddy glad you could make it here. It looks like your heading along the right path with your art. I know you aren't able to do any figure studies atm but you could do some anatomy studies ... next best thing cuz it gives you a solid understanding of the human body plus you can apply the anatomical knowlege to creatures by distorting the anatomy and what not cuz when you look at it all creatures are built the same .... kinda lol.

    Anyway your faces are looking good ... keep them up.

    Fast isnt bad so don't worry about it for now.... your getting lines down and getting familiar with the human face.... you'll slow down some day.

    Looking forward to more of your post ... Keep up the good work

    Later for now ... I'll keep an eye on ya.

    Hey there! - I think the most successful sketch are the hand studies. That's where the closest observation seemed to have taken place.
    I like the floating landscape you did for your friend as well.


    - Like I'm sure you've heard 1,000 times...Do as much drawing from direct -observation as you can...It doesn't have to be a nude model. Sure, that will help your figure drawing skills , which are extremely important, but there are other skills you can sharpen too. Getting that hand, eye and brain to work like one big muscle together can take some time. Photos are okay to work with if that's all you have...but try to use quality photos.Ones that are all washed out with a flash or extremely doctored in photoshop will make it more difficult to learn.

    Keep at it bro!

    Ha, I have the opposite problem-I refuse to do nude life drawing and everyone wants me to. My dad was giving me crap about it today actually. "Draw those naked people!" It looks like I will probably be kicked out of The Joe Kubert School pretty soon after I start (I hope they let me stay the first year at least) because of my "no-nudity" rule. Oh well, suicide is always an option.

    Well, looks like you too can draw better than me. Everyone can and god do I hate myself.


    ...and hey, looks like everyone else hates me too! I wish I was dead.

    Are you only saying that to scare people? At least you have some motivaiton. My Stepbrother lives with us, he's 25 and only gets like, 20 bucks a day which he spends on beer or something else.

    So I guess this begs the question: Why do you have a no-nudity rule? Even the most religious guy I knew in art school had no problems with it. is it a religious thing?

    yeah right. It's a parent thing. And becuase I'm 15, they think Im a perv more than an artist. I hope next summer (in o6) I can go to Ringlings precollege and get some done there. It's not ym faulkt, really. and it's not a rule either.

    EDIT: Oh, for him? I'd guess it's a women thing, not nerovus or anything, just he may not think it's right.
