    I like those deer studies that you did if you use that same technique when doing human figure studies, I believe it would be to your advantage.

    Thanks for stopping by my thread again! Great work here dude, so keep going!

    Those deer drawings are great. Definately try and think of the human form in this sense, resist all your desires to indulge in face/detail just yet. For your digi I prefered the first image, better composition and contrast in the piece. The second one is looked very flat and unreadable in comparison. Are these two the wrong way round?

    Oldnoobie - thanks, i'll try that

    isair - thank you

    aph - thanks. I see what you mean about the enviro. Actually the first one i spent hours and hours on and the second one was 30 min, just to see what i could do with it. The contrast seemed greater when i was working on it, but i was mostly going for atmosphere. Tell me if you like this one better...

    These animals are being reffed from the drawing animals book again, hence the awesome simplified forms, but obviously its a good technique so i'll try it on people for gestures. Here are some feet from sara simblet's anatomy for the artist, 80 min. And here's a quick fix for that enviro, still not that great i guess but i like it better than the old one.

    great job on the feet

    and I think I got that same book "Drawing Animals", by Norman Adams and Joe Singer, right? hehe, my copy was from the first printing in 1979.

    Good stuff here mate - and thanks for taking a peek in my SB!

    Nice job on the feet... keep playing around with those values. Also your life drawings are very cool, nice flowyness in all your characters.

    Keep it up!

    hey ,
    The feet are looking like your best digi so far, try not using so much low opacity because its turning a bit muddy .The deer is great . The bears limbs look a little stiff and it kinda looks a bit like a teddy bear

    keep it up .james.

    And this next week i will be camping so i will not be able to post, but i will continue drawing!
    Awesome stuff, the work in the post, the girl kissing, they look kinda like nurses, very frekaing good gestures. Keep it up. Leaps and bounds man. =]

    hey, gestures are nice ,some of the wrist look a bit limp and the pencikl ones the legs are to small. i really like the charcol and chalk woman and the blue man too.
    I like the zoomed in portrait but the other one the lower half seems like it pulls in to much ,unless thats how your jaw is.Also the bit between the lip and nose is missing (cant remember what it is called).Anyway

    keep it up .james.

    hyptosis - wow you dug back there a while, thanks for the complements

    james - thanks, thats why i cut that part of the portrait off >.>; it was done entirely without ref.

    Here are some figures, early ones were 30 seconds, 1 mins, 5 mins, 10 mins, and the last one was an hour. Charcoal and conte on all but last, which is graphite.

    hey,
    The red conte lifedrawings are musch better, and the animal drawings are nice but watch out for the proportions on them. Some of there legs look a bit wonky.

    keep it up .james.

    nice, bones in the figures are cool. Like the animals. concentrate on getting your value system right. You're putting darks, midtones, and lights in the right places, but you're not looking to see if the dark on the leg is darker than the dark on the arm. You can get a ton of depth noticing the subtle value shifts between large areas of the form. And line quality nees work with the conte, some of em are wide smudges.

    max xiantu - thanks giraffes are weird >.>;

    guitarjames - thanks, i was going for proportions but animals don't like to stay still Gotta study more animal anatomy to remedy the problem i guess

    Blue Severin - thanks.. hmm i'd never thought of it like that before. I will pay more attention to overall values, although generally there are like 5 light sources, which makes values harder to nail :/

    oldnoobie - thanks, i enjoyed doing the animal gestures a lot, going to have to do that again.

    I'm sick of not being able to draw faces/hands from memory, so i'm going to try to practice them daily now, only from ref/life for a little while to clear my memory of habits, Here's the frantic anger sketches, all really quick attempts to nail proportion/likeness. Once i got into the groove i felt a little better corbis.com is my new friend

    nice portfolio, these are the ones I like most





    I noticed they are almost all figures, I would suggest adding a couple more still lifes and environmental works to give it a more balanced portfolio

    I agree about balancing out your portfolio.
    I think the SP and the Dali-esque landscapes are your strongest works. I like 'em alot.
    The figure drawing seems to have more of a rushed feel to it not present in those other pieces.
    Best of luck in your application process. I look forward to seeing the CalArts portolio :.

    Oldnoobie and Max Xiantu - thanks for the input , the reason why my portfolio is like this can be explained by this quote, taken directly from the calarts website

    Submit a portfolio of at least 20 drawings from life. At least 80 percent of your application portfolio should be drawings of people and animals from real life -- these drawings ought to range from one-minute gestures to longer poses. Landscape drawings (including interiors as well as exteriors), animal, bird, marine drawings and floral studies, both linear and color, are a plus. Do not try to clean up the drawings by erasing the construction lines. These under-drawing/construction lines are especially helpful to the faculty in understanding how you approach life drawing.
    Here's my in progress portfolio. Some of the drawings are from tonights figure drawing session. I may chop up some of the gesture pages and take some from other places as well, and I am planning to add in some of those animal pages, and possibly a printout of a digi. Let me know what you think.

    Hey fish, sorry for not popping in for a long time!

    The figures are coming along nicely! Much improvement there, animal studies are good too. I think your sb is a bit lacking in imagination department, while drawing from life is great - I think putting some focus on drawing from head would be worthwhile. Maybe also some study on industrial design/architecture to balance things off.

    Keep rocking!

    james - thanks for the crits.

    Little more work, this might make it into the portfolio if i keep getting good feedback on how to improve it.

    Edit: Another version - fixed some perspective issues. I'd still love crits on this one.

    Edit2: Another version. Would love some input, running out of ideas.
