Spiffy's sketchbook - UPDATE: 05/16/2009
I'm gonna try and draw as much as I can, so I don't feel like a complete incompetent at the workshop! (And improve my skills for posterity, of course! ) So here's my sketch thread, hopefully it'll help push me to draw regularly.
Couple doodles from my head
Went to a drop-in life drawing session today (or yesterday now I guess).
I'm very out of practice, but it was fun! The drawings go from short poses (~1 min) to long ones (~20-30 min?).
Yeah... totally messed up on the foreshortening, and now she's got shrivelled legs... T_T

Hey Spiffy, nice work on the eyes! Those figure drawings are coming along nicely. Try and get a copy of Andrew Loomis' books online. They help alot. Hope this helps you. Keep em coming bro!

Thanks for the comments, gmags! (And I'm a sis, not a bro )
Got back from Montreal on Monday night, and I must say, it was totally awesome!
But anyways, here are more drawings, mostly from the workshop itself.
First drawing in Montreal - hostel Thunderdome: masked warrior
Some doodles and notes from the first 2 workshop sessions.
1 workshop model drawing, and some doodles. The notes on the nose I got from observing Jason Chan's painting.
Trying to draw the model on the 2nd day, but not being very successful...
Trying some more
More notes and some doodles.
Figure drawing on the 3rd day
The model on the last day, and the leg of someone I was covertly drawing at the airport in Montreal.
Sesshoumaru fanart from a month or so ago...
Here's some older paintings from my acrylic painting class last fall:
2 self portraits, one in complementary colours:
uhh... 2x3 interior study
small canvas panel imaginary landscape paintings

Beautiful studies! I really like all the time spent with the life studies. The non ref eye is very nice and awesome job on the self portraits. Keep up the studies.
Feel free to checkout my work:

yay! you started a sketchbook! thanks for hanging out in montreal, we had great fun ^^
i love the self portraits, but it seems that the realism goes down just a bit in the landscapes...but prolly you don't want to do landscapes as a living, so...*shrugs*
post all your OTHER art here too....*hint hint*

darkchild: Thanks! I find life studies the hardest to do because things keep changing, but I'll keep working at it hopefully, once the figure drawing classes start up again. In the meantime, I'll dig out my figure drawing books and try to understand what lies beneath the surface .
hp/luvr: Yeah, I really wish I went to the gay bar... darnit! Oh well, the Bioware guys were cool, too! About the landscapes... yeah, not much practice with them, which means that drawing them out of my head won't work so well . And the 3'x4' was done on the night before my portfolio was due! LOL that was a doozy! But I DO want to improve on them, so I'll try to remember to dig out some landscape photos and paint them for practice. Remind me later if I forget, k? XD
Darktwin: Thanks! I'll try to keep working at it!
So here's some new stuff, comments and critiques are greatly appreciated.
A costume design based on a dream I had about a world where women held all the power ehehe... The politics were based heavily on the game of houses, sort of like Dune, or Cairhien in The Wheel of Time, but the dress is more like Star Wars with heavy Japanese influences.
Here's what I'm working on now - more Sesshoumaru fanart! I'm trying to use a different method of digital painting, more along the lines of what I saw at the workshop with fewer layers and less airbrushing, and looser brush strokes. I'm also trying to work in other tones besides the basic shades of a single colour.
HP/luvr told me to post some of my other stuff here, so here are some older portraits that I've done from photo refs.
Chiaki Kuriyama (Go Go Yubari from Kill Bill Vol.1)
Takeshi Kaneshiro (House of Flying Daggers, Returner, Onimusha 1 & 3)
