    Chris has a sketchbook. (12/19/06)

    The last one sucked really really bad. A bunch of silly things I did on a tablet that took no effort at all.

    Right. Well, I go to The Valley Art Institute, a nifty little place taught by some nifty little people. Ammoburger and Listing, of these forums, go there too, and they rock some serious ass.

    Anyway, to kick this baby off, here's a Sargent portrait I shamelessly copied. Albert de Belleroche it was.


    I'm not too pleased with it. It's too wide and my values are lame.

    And a self portrait.



    I hate the right side of the face.

    Junk doodle


    Car from life


    Listing, from these forums. He's impossible to draw.



    Hopefully on the weekend, I'll upload some of my summer intensive work.

    I like your pen work, Chris. Especially the junk doodle and that portrait of me. Remember to train your lines around the planes and contours of the objects and not work simply in cross-hatched value. The portrait actually looks like me with a few small feature distortions. Really good. Keep posting - work is the only distance between where you are and where you want to be. Also, let's put each other's sketchbook links in our signatures to increase hits. I know you like to hit it.

    Yeah, I used to cross contour EVERYTHING when I did value work. I don't know when, but I stopped. :/

    Anyway, sure, I'll put your's and Spencer's in.

    An old life drawing. I liked how it turned out.


    Poop



    Self portrait. It looks weird. I blame the mirror.

    I really like the first so-called junk doodle. I think it has more personality than any of the life drawings or master copies.

    Yeah, it's got personality, but I'm not sure if it makes me better, ya know?

    Anyway, thanks. I'll try to pump out more things from my head.

    You got the shape of my head much better. The feature placement seems correct, too. Pay special attention to eyes. Keep posting.

    Oil Pastel with a Limitied Color Palette.


    Friend of mine


    Lame texture studies. (Part of a concrete head, some weird tin container, and silk cloth)

    nice colors for the pastel. As with this portrait of Dylan, you tend to get the form of the head but lose some of the features. There's marked improvement in your portraiture even in the few examples here. Keep studying, from our faces and Sargent's, outside of class.

    Looking really good, My personal favorites are the heads not looking directly in to the "camera", alot of sadness in there.

    I'm posting again. I never seem to bring my work home from VAI, so at the least, I'll have a huge load to dump here.

    Anyway, I installedthe tablet software on my new computer and christened it with the following.



    And Jho- Thanks, I didn't mean for it to look sad, but hey, I can pretend it was intentional

    Spencer and Miles- Thanks, as always

    Please spend more time on your drawings. I want to see them finished and bristling with eye-pleasing details. That's what I like so why don't you try to please me?

    Your frankness inspires me.

    Yeah, since I've got a painfully huge final project at my art class, I think I kinda have to finish those, at least.

    My excuse is a short attention span

    Chris that painting is so sad. A lot of sadness in there. If you aren't seeing a therapist already I'm going to kidnap you and feed you to the lions you sad bastard. EXCELSIOR!

    cool stuff, for certain. i think i am seeing alot of 2d profile lines and direct depictions. you must remember to think of things as 3d objects and shapes, and let your mind understand the shapes and translate them onto your sketchpad.

    There's a grip of real nice emotive portraits here.
    I like the sadness in the eyes.

    Post more!

    Hey! That one with the beard from 27th July looks really cool. I would love to see things more defined though. More defined/hard edges... In your painted and also your sketched pics. Maybe wile sketching try to lay down the form you want to show with the first line and not slowly get there while drawing many lines... I think drawig with a biro or marker could help. I did so too, at least most of it looked like shit in my opinion, but it its important you do that, so that you arent cared of the canvas/sketchbook anymore.
    I hope someone understands this, too early for english right now ^^

    keep posting, bye

    SUH: Yeah, it's a dirty habit I got into. I'll try to remedy that.
    Max:Thanxxxx
    Embee: Thanks for the words. I started using a sharpie a few days ago, and all of my sketches ended up being formless globs of terrifying darkness.

    And Miles/Spencer: yar, I'm back for a bit.


    I'm trying to get back into art, since I noticed a noticeable decline in my output.

    I started a new digital piece, but I haven't had the time to work on it much yet. I'm like, 30 minutes in or so.


    I'm going to try to scan in some of my history notes, since that's the class I draw the most.

    Anyhow, winter break's coming up. With any luck, I'll post more.


    And if it's not clear: THE FOLLOWING IMAGE IS A WIP. KEEP IT FROSTY.
