    Anyways, thanks for the comments! Seeya for now!
    I had the same problem with focusing on just one area.
    But it doesnt have to be all your drawings, it could just be like a few studies.

    There were some really excellent excercises in the CA Acadamy section that was running a while back. On Lineweight and Linequality.
    I felt these tought me WAY more than anything else I did, because it was focused on this one topic.
    Also you could not pass until you had it correct, I did about 4 re-attempts which was rare for me,
    It also makes the habit of being able to anaylse work unemotionally.

    As for the teacher, yea i know it sucks, but what someone said early on stuck in my mind "don't let anything get in the way of your dream",
    Maybe explain to her what your doing and why, and she'll be well impressed and give you a big fat A.

    nice !

    hmm, a thought... i think you need to look more, study the light/shadows... the SP seems flat or uninteresting...maybe anatomically correct (dont know what you look like) but it has a lack of punch...

    other than that, just keep at it... 9'999 left to do


    cheers !!

    You cant really see this because of the sketchyness- He kept moving, so I drew over. If they had all been flat lines, it would have looked alot better.

    The last 3 were my lunch period. I'll continue to do this- Because we have an empty trophy case with a mirror behind it. So I sit in front and abosrb ridicule from the children and draw myself. =D

    Bus ride home.

    The first bus ones were both on different busses (Yes we have 3 different busses, don't ask.)

    Have fun commenting!

    try using Charcoal to shade and a kneeded eracer to help with tonality. You just need more subtlety when you shade.

    the pant leg is awesome because you are using a continuous and confident line. but her arm looks lumpy and not very descriptive. Study this difference in this and other sketches.

    quoted for agreement. well stated. this is a big problem for everyone when learning to draw. i did it, and i'm sure everyone on this board did it. the way i learned to stop "chicken scratching" was to practice longer pencil strokes and quick 30 second gesture drawings. TONS of them. anyhoo, good job man. =)

    Most of these I didn't so much "Pet" my line as I did go over it trying to get it correct. I think I need to be more accurate as well as more confident, because I think there may be a partial illusion of unconfidence created by the multiple over lines. I know I didn't go back and forth like i used to though. Thanks for the comments!

    Sketches from yesterday. The bottom one is not from life or anything. From imagination totally.

    awesome! the last two are great! i see the resemblence between your icon (whim i'm going to assume is you.) and the self portrait....which is the point, ne? and the other one done freehand and from memory is great. i also see an improvement as you try not to "pet" your lines. great work.

    I think i'm inspired by artists like you on this site (as well as recently discovery the link to www.savelomis.org ) to scratch everything i've been working on, and return completly to basics. to re-do everything i've learned, take the time, and make it excellent compared to how i went about it when i first learned it...i think i will make good progress that way...and you definatly are proof about the whole takeing the basics step by step=better quality art.

    Thanks for posting!

    I love watching people do the 'draw from life everyday' thing. Can see them improve exponentially. Just keep burnin' lead...

    man, very nice, very very nice work. Great improvement in a small space of time. Heres a tough one for ya, i dont mean to break your train of speed paints
    but doo a self portrait or a drawing or something, but spend about 4 or 5 hours on it
    really plan it out properl make sure everything is ok and dont rush it. then see what happens you might get some veery nice results.
