So uh. Succumbing to peer pressure, I was talked into putting some of my sketchbook stuff on here. I've been looking at you guys for a long time but I rarely get up the nerve to try to put stuff up, but, I've been convinced.
Myxo-whatever-the-hell-it-is who started posting a few days ago is a friend of mine whom I'll be sharing a studio with next year, and I too am a 16 year old art student from MD. Yadda yadda, carver center. I'm essentially his polar opposite, I'm more of a draftsman than a painter and that's why there's no paintings in here, though I may eventually put some in. Yay.
Wouldn't it be nice if I could post in here semi-frequently, I'd enjoy that and it would probably do me some good to do so.
What I'm going to drop right now is a collection of sort of old stuff, some of its old, some of its recent. But I've picked my favorites from what I have and I'll drop them all at the same time:
Just for chronology's sake, this is from a sketchbook from. Sophomore year, I think, I was big into grayscale markers:
This is two pages from a recent sketchbook, these are sort of undefined self portraits but I like what I have anyway. These are sort of page fillers, maybe:
Another self portrait. This one was also a pretty quick one:
Continuing along, a drawing of my girlfriend, my favorite of these smaller drawings:
The last of the small sketches, other people like this one alot, I thought it was kind of bad and the more I look at it the more I question what I was thinking when I laid out these proportions:
And just as some collateral cuz I think I have better work than whats in there, this is a triptych I did around the end of last year. They're all about 1.5 ft x 4 ft:
And some more, a lifesize self portrait I did in charcoal that I just really like. It's somewhere around 3 ft x 7 ft so its actually a little bigger than lifesize, but I don't like to split hairs (this is a terrible slide, but it'll do):
That's all for now? Hopefully I'll be motivated to put more on here later. I'm sure jason (myx) will bother me until I do. As a note theres a drawing of me in there, I'm justin. http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=70375
I look like a lion, it's wonderful.
