    I wish you would adjust the contrast on your scans, so they didn't look all pale and grubby. thats really easy to fix.These have a lot of potential, but I have trouble seeing around the smudges

    Question

    @Fish - thanks. Yea i know i need to post stuff. I have a bunch of sculptures and life drawings and I just started painting. Luckily my roommate has a digital camera so hopefully i will be posting more often now.

    @jdeegz - thanks

    @chaos - wow i don't know what caused such a prominent lady as yourself to stop by but thanks I used to be a computer scientist yet i still cant figure out my darn scanner I used to try for hours to get pencil drawings to show up correctly when i scan them but i just gave up I will probably be using a digital camera for almost everything from now on so hopefully they will look better

    ----------------------------------------

    heres a portrait bust i did in Figure Modeling class as well as a self portrait in gouache using a complimentary mute chart for color theory class.

    Very, very nice, dude. You have improved so much since the first page. Seeing that head sculpture makes me want to start doing it myself! Keep going, man. At first I thought that self portrait was a PS filter, surprised it was gouache.

    Awesome progress dude. The sculpture and SP are looking great. I don't care if your pencil scans don't look great, it still helps to see them, so post some more if you can! Looking forward to your next update.

    thanks guys

    @zord - doesn't look likely that i will make it to seattle. I wont know for sure till dates are announced but it sounds like it will be during final time. Also theres always the money issue. I wish i could go

    -------------------------------------

    well heres my first oil painting. Done in black and white in class. My teacher (www.brandonsmithpaintings.com check him out) said it needed more contrast to catch the eye from a distance. That class is alot of fun, oil painting is awesome. I have 2 more paintings drying in the classroom, a b&w egg and a limited pallete still life. I'll post them soon.

    also these are life drawings where we took the model and forced her to fit into the ideal proportions. All 10 minutes except the last 2 regular life drawings which are 20min. That class is also awesome. My teacher is Kieth Wicks, great guy who worked on star wars and the mummy.

    crit away

    Oil painting IS awesome. I like that one but i agree with your teacher - more contrast is needed. Figures are looking good, its good to see you measuring so much. I think they would look a lot better if the lines weren't all the same darkness and thickness, but i can understand why you weren't concentrating on that. Keep up the good work.

    @Fish - thanks man. Yea i need to work on line quality. I'll keep it in mind next time.

    ------------

    2 more oil paintings. First is black and white egg. Second is limited pallet of yellow ochre, terra rosa, black and white.
    Then studies of an ideal male and ideal female. The male is mostly referenced from Loomis but the female was pretty much made up. Loomis's looked kind of masculine and Bridgeman's was kinda plump and weird.
    Then a bunch of life drawings. we where studying the torso and we had to put the boxes in some of the drawings. The amount of time is up in the right hand corner.

    thanks

    Nice life studies! keep at it! No missing body parts please hehe. try to at least put the rest of the body parts on your figure studies. It looks like your trying to study the torso closely(torso is pretty tough). or you can just imply those othere body parts. Good luck with your studies!

    thanks guys for the comments.

    Its been so long. School has been crazy but i finally splurged on a digital camera so hopefully i will be able to keep up with this more. Then again i have to use my friend comp for internet so maybe not.

    heres a work in progress of a portrait for my head drawing class as well as a toned paper portrait done in class.
    also 2 still life paintings which where my last 2 projects from that class.
    the blurriness is due to very long exposure times cause its so dark in my dorm.

    tear em apart.

    Wow, I stumbled upon another fellow AAU-ian

    For the most part, I think "That fat Kid" hit it right on with his critique. The only advice I can give you is drawing from life, with un-posed models. I feel like it requires a different mindset than drawing from a posed model, because of time constraints it forces you to focus on the most important relationships.

    Although I think it's great that you're breaking down the figure in a way that helps you (with the blocks). I've never been able to utilize that in my drawings.

    Post more!

    Oh and by the way, I also had Brandon Smith's still life class last fall, maybe we were in the same class? I'm just guessing here though...

    wow its been a long time since i even looked at this thread.

    @That Fat Kid -
    I'm not really sure what you mean by your critique. I assure you I did not use any kind of grid for my drawing. The lines you see on the reference were drawn by my teacher to illustrate the idea that the facial features tend to be parallel.
    I'm also not sure how measuring and line produces hackneyed results. Meticulous measuring when you are developing as an artist, I believe, is one of the keys to developing your eye. I measured so meticulously for long enough now that my eye is accurate enough to draw with very little physical measuring and still produce a likeness.
    I also find it much easier to relate large value shapes as opposed to lines so i tend to aim for a four value drawing early so i can see my errors.
    I understand what you are saying about checking for problems in my work and i do do that often using the exact methods you listed.
    There is always more to learn and understand but I am not sure what you feel my drawing shows a lack of understanding in. Could you please elaborate.

    @jigokuen
    I don't actually use blocks in my drawings. That was an exercise my teacher had us do. My drawing is mostly direct now, but my preferred style is reductive because I enjoy value as opposed to line.
    I understand what you mean about the time constraint thing. I took Clothed Fig Drawing and I learned a lot because we had such a limited time for each drawing. I plan on going to clothed Fig workshops and quick studies workshops in the future to strengthen that. The thing with going out and sketching though is I don't really enjoy it, I would rather be painting or doing a value drawing.
    You may have been in my class I think it was the only one he taught that semester. I don't know if you know anyone else in it but Ian Miller, Xiau Fong, Brandon Pike, and Steven Howard were in my class. I was the fat kid with the fedora and goatee

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    heres some new stuff.
    The final of that previous work in progress. Which actually won 3rd place in Fine Art Figurative at the Spring show (the only drawing to get in the FA show).
    Also some in class portrait paintings.
    And another work in progress.
