    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

    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.
