    Thesinfulsaint's working sketchbook/Portfolio

    Hello everyone! As of right now, I'm entering my senior year in high school. I'm *hoping* to be a Computer Animation major at Ringling School of Art and Design in the fall of 2007, but we'll see how the acceptance/funding goes.

    Thesinfulsaint's working sketchbook/Portfolio
    This is one of my pride and joy portfolio pieces. Prisma colors on Cold press watercolor paper, 18" x 24".

    Another one of my pride and joy portfolio pieces. Graphite on regular sketchbook paper, and I can't remember the size...but it's pretty big.

    Here are a few life drawings I did at the Columbus College of Art and Design Summer Preview program. (They're in chronological order)

    Then, finally, here are a couple of poor photos of a series of self portraits I'm working on for my portfolio. In the end, there will be three. All three will be done with oil.

    (Please keep in mind that these are still VERY rough)

    Aaaand here are just a couple of random pages out of my sketchbook.

    I know that I don't have any cartoony-type work posted here, but I talked to Eric from Ringling, and he told me on my visit that it was best to not even let them know that I could do that yet. So... yep. I've been focusing on realism.

    Yeah, I tend to erase my plumb lines when I'm doing figure drawing. I'll be sure to leave more of them there next time, thanks! Thanks for stopping by.

    Your best pieces are really masterful. Keep working and soon even just your normal pieces will be as good as the best stuff you can do now. Maybe you should try different subject matter to test yourself.

    Thank you! Yes, I plan to try many different subject matter and media in my portfolio. I need to get around to setting up an interesting still life to paint or draw!

    I'm not really sure yet--probably one or two. I don't think I'm going to really make my still life a typical still life, though. I'll probably do something weird with it like change the scales all around.

    Wow, nice stuff. That portrait rendering of the guy with toothpick or straw is the best. Good work and hope to see you at Ringling next year.

    Nice sketchbook! I really like the prismacolor one of the car; although the house in the background lacks a feeling of stucture (it kind of sags a bit) the car itself is an impressive rendering of a very shiny/reflective surface.

    Of your figure work, I think that the head/portrait is best. Your proportions are pretty good over all, but a lot of the muscles and fat pads feel a little like putty; they look more like they're just stuck on rather than being attatched to/pulling/hanging off of bones and ligaments.

    All the same I applaud you! This is some very good work for just having begun to draw nudes. Your use of values is very good!

    Please post more... Admissions may not want to see your cartoony stuff, but that shouldn't keep you from showing it here!

    Yes, I agree, the house is a bit weak on the first one. Every Portfolio review I've had at least one person has said the same thing. Fixing the house is on my to-do list--thanks for the crit!

    Again, thanks for the crits (and compliment ) on my life drawings!

    All right, I guess I will get around to posting some more. I've been pretty lazy with taking photos of my stuff lately. xP

    great stuff, just keep at it and you'll get into any college you want. I like the rendering on the lips of the second one.

    All right, here's some new stuff!

    Thesinfulsaint's working sketchbook/Portfolio
    This is a new portfolio piece I'm working on. I wouldn't consider anything there done yet--I have a ton of refining to do on the crayons and hand. Not ot mention the rest of the picture. Oy.

    Thesinfulsaint's working sketchbook/Portfolio
    Did that at CCAD's Precollege, but I just got around to photographing it. I'll most likely refine it and include it in my final portfolio.

    Those last two are really nice. Are you using oils or acrylics for these?

    The first one is acrylic--the second one is oils. I'm planning on doing some refining with colored pencils on the acrylic piece.

    cosmicbeanbag--Thanks!!

    Thanks a lot! The oil painting is just on a little piece of stretched canvas. The acrylic one is on gesso'd cold press watercolor paper.
