    Andy P - Thanks. Always more work to do on line

    Blue Severin - Yeah, gotta work on rhythm, i think i'll go through that section in bridgeman again soon. Value and line is a constant struggle

    guitarjames - thanks. When i doodle i mainly just mess around trying to remember anatomy/proportion/structure and apply it to fun stuff. Gotta keep my creativity sharp. I'm sure i'll churn out a full page of faces sometime soon

    Just for the cumulitive information, i post very few of my doodles here these days. I've filled about 100 pages of that brown sketchbook, and only a few are on here... although i post them when i don't have time for other projects. Here's some figures for you. I was super tired... like zombie tired. Still I think i got some okay drawings.

    Also for the cumulitive information, i never get more than 30 minute poses. My teacher tends to enjoy fast poses more. So, uh, no cool finished drawings unfortunately.

    yo,
    my favrouite are the man wiht the stick and the guy with clothes on.I think the you are making the lower muscle on the back of the leg bulge out on some off your drawings and some times your legs are too small.. something to keep in mind.

    keep it up .james.

    now go get some sleep

    You're getting better man. Try to keep your shapes clean. In example, the seated man's right arm is really fuzzy edged, even though it's getting direct light and it's against the shadow. On the second 30 min, his left foot definitely needed more work, even if you just get the big shapes of light and shadow, screw the toes. Not too much wrong the seated man though, definite improvement.

    For portfolio purposes i would deffinitely include the Arm studies that are posted on the first page with the Horse that says "Yuck." They are great. I would also probably include the Horse.

    For environments the only thing I'd put in is the Clouds and ocean on the first page. You dont want to over-do environments in a portfolio anyway. They are much more interested in figures.

    These studies are good:

    For figures, you want to have about 80% quick studies and 20% long studies. They care more that you can get proportion, form, and posture down quickly. But they also want to see you can finish a piece.

    I would also recoment not including any studies from anatomy or art books. I think i see some Hogarth stuff in there. Not that you shouldent be drawing stuff from books, but for a portfolio they realy dont want to see it. They are much more interested in how YOU approach a figure.

    I'd leave all the face/portrait stuff out, and all the digital paint stuff out.


    where are you looking to apply?

    Looking good! I second Severin's comments. Also, the backgrounds on some of these look a bit distracting. I know charcoal is difficult to control when it comes to get an even value in a big surface, specially when you have such a short time. But maybe you could focus more on the figure construction and only indicate the areas in the background, so you could fill them up after your sessions. Just a thought.
    Cheers man, and keep the pace (and get some sleep too)!

    Blue Severin - Thanks, yeah i see what you mean. I may work on him some more for my portfolio

    codenothing - thanks for the advice! although some of the stuff you said i should put in was from books, which i'm not going to put in Still, your opinion was helpful. I'm applying to calarts, art center in pasadena, and laguna college of art and design.

    fedezz - thanks. Yeah, i mainly just focus on the part of the background that is near the figure, but i guess i should finish them more for finished pieces.

    Another SP. Figure i should start getting into emotions.

    :eek: lots of improvement since iV ebeen here last.
    For your portfolio, what Ive heard are that people want to see life drawing, various traditional media( like chalk or oil pastel, or painting) of a wide variety of subjects.
    Do some portraits from ref and put in the best one.
    Overall, mix it up and make sure its your best work.

    On the self portrait, push the values a lot more.
    have a long hard look at your face and draw it as best you can.
    Keep working on it bro!

    Well, you look pissed off in that last sp I guess that was the emotion you were looking to capture? Looks great, my only advice (already mentioned) is that you push the contrast a little.
    Keep 'em coming!

    . Your understanding of form is certainly increasing. Also, do keep an eye on line and value quality. Your lines are often too heavy and your darks muddy. Great work.
