    A Turkey's Sketchbook (upd. Sept 16)

    I need to draw way more, and starting this sketchbook will hopefully motivate me to keep producing stuff for whoever reads/looks at this. Right now I'm at about one or two art-related things a week, which is not much for someone who is just starting art school in a few days.

    Hopefully I get a decent response!

    I even did a brand-new drawing as a "cover" for this sketchbook! See, I'm trying!

    And few sketches/paintings

    Yup, if you're going to art school, get ready to make art for most of the hours you are awake. And if your school doesn't require you to make art almost every waking hour, do it anyway.

    Want to join me in doing a painting-a-day? It's a great way to whip yourself into action.
    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    I would like to, but unfortunately I have no paint right now.

    Haha! Okay, you could make it a drawing-a-day, or a sculpture-a-day, or whatever suits your fancy. :-)

    Hey Dindon
    thanks for your comment in my book.
    Keep plugging away at yours, good to see you doing studies. They can be tedious but will get you ahead.

    You're going to ACAD? What program you in? just curious what you think of the place. I'm in Edmonton.

    I can't tell you much from experience really, since I'm just starting first year studies. I hope to get into design after that.

    I've heard people say that the school is more hands-on and less lecture-y than others. There's one lecture hall for stuff like art history and whatnot. The rest appear to be devoted to the various fine arts and design courses. Class sizes for the studio courses are about 20. If you take a look at their site, you would find more info than I could ever give at the moment

    Sorry I'm not of much help.

    More stuff. Ignore the stuff at the top of the first page...

    The studies are referenced from "Drawing the Head and Figure"

    Hey there dindon!

    Thanks for dropping by my book. You have some very solid stuff in here and those studies are looking good. I'm sorry if I can't offer any proper crits!

    Anyway, keep drawing mate!

    Nice to meet ya! Fortunately my parents don't seem to want to kick me out yet, so I am living at home. I live in the NW.

    I really hope I can make it on tuesday, I haven't been going to bed as early as I should...

    Spats - Thanks for taking a look! I appreciate the comments.
