    Your pen sketches in here are really nice. Line quality and confidence is very cool.

    Can't wait to see the finished version. When you turn the tree trunk back, maybe dim down the light in the upper left corner, probably the same as the upper right? The yellow in that pocket just sticksout alot, and is actually the highest contrast. Super minor though. The still life stuff still floors me, even though those pics don't do them any justice. Dope work, but you knew that already.

    very strong figure drawings... very academy-of-art for sure though... How long have you been there? Looks like you hit the quick studies a lot huh? really good oil paintings too... Make sure you do a lot of drawings and concepts outside of school, and ENVIRONMENTS, man if I could tell every academy student one thing, itd be to do more environments, that and compositions... Thats the weakest point in everyone from the Academy's portfolio... How much time you got left there?

    Stunning work, very inspirational. Bookmarked your blog and will be lurking.

    I'm starting at AAU too, part-time in the online MFA in Illustration program (which will take me 7 years to get through at the rate I'm going since I work full-time). I wish I could have done a BFA when I was younger to get at some of the fundamentals I'm tackling now... your work is marvelously fluid and confident; it has a lot of characteristics I'm trying to develop in my own, but feel a long way from still. Keep it up!

    Mohd Al Mahdi: Thank you!

    praeclaris:

    Cotron:thanks!

    Chrome: good idea, I still haven't really played with it yet, but I've decided to definitely turn that branch back, thanks for the help!

    Stalsby: I'm glad, thank you!

    AztcFireFlower: Thanks! I feel like those drawings are too timid, I want to try and producemore powerful pieces.

    ajvenema: Thanks alot!

    Main Loop: Definitely!!! That's what I noticed too, and I don't want to be pigeon-holed into that mindset that characters are the most important!!! I still have 2 or so years left, depending on how I pace myself. This is the start of my third year, so I'm looking forward to taking more classes that will help me in layout and environment, since that's where I plan to base my portfolio around... and its my weakest point.

    monna-giovanna: Thanks for stopping by!

    leprecauna: Thank you

    TomatoMan: I'm not sure how good the illustration program is online, let alone the Masters version, but I wish you could take it on campus! one of the best parts about the academy is the free workshops they offer, you can practically get practice whenever you like, and there are some truly great teachers here. I hope you still enjoy the courses though, my perception is that the online program is pretty extensive.

    unamigosencillo: Thanks!

    Oki: Wow, I'm honored

    xysdf: Thanks so much!


    Me and a few friends from school (including Chromosome!!) went to the zoo on Thanksgiving, so cute furry things, some 2 minute poses, and classmates.

    Hey Jigo, life drawings are great, captured alot of character and charisma. In the purely conceptual stuff It would be nice to see some of that facial and figurative realism and that the life drawings have. at first glance it seems that the poses and such from your life drawings are way more dynamic than your conceptual figures, but maybe i just havent seen enough of your stuff. (Feel free to shut me up with your next post )

    2 years? you're in good shape... Lay off the figures for a while and concentrate on your weak points... Do more environments and focus on composition.. You should take Anthony Christov's drawing for film class because it will force you into that mindset,take it as soon as you can, because it will also give you the foundation to keep working on while you still got the security of being in school.. I wish the academy had workshops that focused on those kinds of things, but its always figures figures figures... And guess what, I did more figure drawing than almost anyone there when i was at that school, but at my job I havent done 1 character yet. Dont worry about your figure drawing skills slacking from not practicing as much either, yeah they will do that, but it only takes a little while to get them back, at your level... In 2 years with enough practice everything else will get to the level of your figures, which will make your portfolio 10x more appealing to employers..

    Man in chain ftw! Nice studies too.
    Just checked the first page: I like the concept work. It’s well-brought-up!

    Great update as well.

    Kroger: Thanks! I agree, I haven't been doing a lot of sketching from imagination, or not as much as I'd like to considering how much life drawing I dedicate time to. I'll try to apply what I learned from life drawing...

    Main Loop: Man, you don't how hard that will be for me, but I know, I need to take a step towards doing other things. I already took drawing for film last spring, but I will take it again before I graduate for sure. It was an awesome class and Anthony Christov was extremely helpful. Next semester I'm hoping to take Illustration 3 (with Robert) and focus on environments and composition.

    Hazart: Thanks!

    MurdokX: Thank you!

    Praeclaris: Next time, i'll just pour cold water on you

    joaKimArt: Thanks alot!!

    So much for more conceptual stuff... But oh well, Still life painting is 1/4 of my semester, so its gotta go somewhere. One 20 minute painting, 2 x 2.5 hr studies, and one 7 hr study. The colors are a little weird, but oh well.

    amazing, your deftness with drawing particularly the recent animal studies,

    seem so natural so effortless ...very humbling! .....especially in one so young!
    you will succeed, without question.

    Bhanu:
    Giraffes are always mad...lol
    ive actually seen someone get spat on by one...
    not pretty...but damn funny!

    Hey, you can really draw. Those solid pencils are exactly what I can't still get (I'll keep practicing though and will came then to laugh at you! HAHAHAHA).... Ooops sorry I forgot I was writing instead of thinking.

    Finals are over!

    Mikaul: lol yeah, I'm working on that... I hadn't realized how little I sketch from my imagination these days. I hope I get more into it now that I have a break!

    Slowdaddie: Thanks alot!

    Nethus: Thank you!

    Bhanu: Animals are so fun! and I'm so unused to the shape that it really challenged me.

    Kingshaj: Speaking of humbling, you stopping by my thread! Your work is awesome, and I hope to learn alot from you

    lennon: haha I'm not sure what you're referring to, since I don't use pencils. I use charcoal for big pad, and pen for most if not all my sketchwork. Thanks for stopping by!

    Some new stuff! Charcoals are all on big pad, with a model. The rest is all digital, photoshop CS2.
