I am about to present the most amazing, wonderfu;, and beautiful... piece of crap the world has ever seen. Just as soon as i find batteries for my camera. This in all honesty was a shameless bump. Sorry to all those who wasted their time. Your checks are in the mail.

Hey it's great to see your work. Your values in the black and white drawing of the car are good. The color one could be pushed a little farther by studying the real color of those highlights on the red paint. The full size self portrait would be hard to do. I think it must have been hard to draw that big. Did you or your camera crop off part of the head and feet? Nice foreshortening on the arm. Did you do that all in pencil? Geez.

here's an update for all devoted thread watchers.
this is bill hes an idea ive had for a long time.
This is is my completed self portrait. To give you an idea of the size thats a half a piece of plywood attached to the back of the drawing paper. thats 48 inches by 48 inches. its all in graphite and now i wanna do it again because i know i can do it better.
some closeup detail shots
a statue i chose for reference for a drawing i did in blue and white colored pencils on blue mat-board.
and finally a still life im going to start in charcoals. the teacher wants to see the ceiling tiles but isnt quite sure about the las vegas sign yet. this is the best angle i could get since the drawing one students ( im the only drawing two student. others couldnt handle the craziness of the schedule) took up all the other spots. so im stuck drawing it from the floor but i think the angle lends itself to a nice compositional piece. Any C&C is always welcome.

Sorry that I didn't commented before, but man, that self portrait that you did was amazing! Principally for the size of the canvas and I loved the values that you used.
I think that you need to practice more the basic structure of construction of the objects, animals and the human body, so it'll be easier to draw anything you want from your mind instead of using references only and it'll make your knowledge rise, so when you're going to work from a reference the result will be a lot better.
It isn't a bad idea to learn how to do a basic construction but I think that you can't use that during art classes, because generally the teachers give you some time to draw the stuff they asked for, right? I've never been in an art colegge class, so I don't know how it really works... I'm just supposing things here. But having the basic construction in mind, after all you don't need to draw that always, will help you a lot in having control of what you draw.

Good Idea Devil-Inside. I see what your saying. what i really wanna do is get my rendering skills down pat so then i can learn how to draw from my head. I was always told to sraw what you see and see and draw from life because thats the only way to get better.

Nice stuff! That self portrait piece is insane, I'd go crazy working at that kind of scale. :p It looks like you could work on your anatomy some, but most of the pieces so far have really nice values. Love the car, by the way, both color and monotone. And I definitely love that flyer for the hair place.
