    Your figures look good. I see that you are drawing big. My oppinion is that drawing on large paper forces you to draw from the elbow not the wrist, something I need more practice on. Unfortunatly I can't afford to buy large sketch pads. [sigh]

    You want to go to school for animation? Cool! So do I! It looks like you are studying a lot of the same stuff I am. You are lucky to be taking lots of classes. I started my first class last spring, I've been drawing with only books for a long time so I envy your instruction. Keep at it. This world needs more good animated work. What sort of stuff do you plan on doing? Do you want to make your own, or work in a studio? Where did you say you were going to school? I didn't quite catch it.

    Anyway, keep up the good work. Looks like you have a very good start (better than me at least).

    P.S. I like the MasterChief avatar, is it your own work?

    Ulver: Thanks a lot man! I will be posting soon.

    Q-Caddlewick: Thanks so much for the kind words! You dont have to buy big pads to draw big, try recycled paper, newsprint, or buy from ebay. As far as my education and goals go, I hope to attend Ringling School of Art and Design and one day work as an animator for feature film or games. Maby Imageworks or Bungie. Regarding my avatar, I unfortunatly did not make it...its Halo 3 concept art made by Isaac Hannaford from Bungie Studios

    I have to agree the figure drawings and the studies are pretty good. The line quality is up to par and overall they are working.
    There are some incertitudes here and there, especially in the paint dept. but it can all be solved with mileage.

    Keep it up.

    I have to agree with everyone else and say that the nudes are smoking, and your first oil is really looking good. can't wait to see more.

    Your latest update on the graphite still life is looking pretty good! Make sure you keep your darkest values really, really BLACK and your lightest values really really white. The way you have it right now, things are looking pretty gray, although, it shouldn't be hard to touch up. When you're working, make sure you focus on the inner values of each object. The shadow pattern in almost anything goes from light, medium, darkest, to really light from the reflected light. I think you're seeing that--I can really tell from that metallic pencil holder. Just make sure you really really exaggerate the difference from lights to dark.

    The oil painting is looking all right so far, too, although I don't think it's as strong as your drawing is. You should probably include a painting or two in your final portfolio just for variety, but the idea is you want to emphasize your strengths. You seem to be good at drawing. Include more drawings. As far as your actual painting goes, make sure that when you're mixing colors that you mix in your pallete, not on your canvas. If you mix on your canvas, it tends to make things look muddy. Keep your pallete clean. Frequently change your water/terpentine/liquin/whatever you're using. Also, don't use black AT ALL. If you want something to look dark, mix it with its complimentary color. Black is a really harsh color, and it kills everything that you put it in. It makes it look flat. I'm just relaying information I've heard from other college reps--don't take it too harshly.

    Keep up the good work!!

    HAHA a wine glass I think is mandatory for that image, even without the grapes~* It really looks like your understanding what
    your doing in your studies, which is really important. I'm curious to see how you implement what your clearly learning in your own pieces,
    keep it up~*
