    These are great man, keep em coming.

    Best of luck on starting school, the first year is always the best. Between drawings, be sure to meet as many people as possible in these first few months and remember to have fun.

    Jason don't worry i'm having plenty of fun

    first, a study of velazquez's christ on the cross

    and here's my homework for my drawing class, 3 hands from life...the first one is horrible (the one facing toward the viewer) but i think the other two (the fist-y one and the one holding the kendo stick are ok).

    AHHH!!! first day in Vilppu's class, it was nothing short of awesome!

    a lot of the people in class have studied with him before and they are much much better draftsmen/women than me Vilppu draws on a tablet and projects the image, so you can see his progress.....seeing him in action is incredibly helpful.

    Here are the majority of the drawings I did in class today, most are 2 minute poses, a few are 3s and 5s.....i'm really liking the focus on gesture and "life", although the proportions in my drawings really suffered since I'm used to taking my time and carefully measuring/comparing.....My critique for the day was to concentrate on expressing movement, rather than focusing on contour, and basically loosening up. Vilppu drew on my paper to illustrate the point.

    Even though it's only been a day, I think there's a definite improvement between the first figures and the last. And even if there isn't that much improvement, it's been an inspiring day.

    more studies from the museum of natural history....bison and caribou...each about 20-25 minutes...i sorta dislike the caribou though, i failed to capture the subtlety of the interlocking muscles around the shoulder and leg areas

    GNL: yep, Vilppu knows his stuff alright, I can't wait till tuesday!

    Ok, so i had a seminar yesterday with Will Weston, who teaches at Art Center, and it was awesome. He was kind enough to look through my portfolio, and had some suggestions, one of them being to do a lot of 5 minute drawings focusing on gesture and volume....

    He talked about other things I need to work on and I'm really trying to take his advice to heart. So, here are some five minute drawings from the LA natural history museum, focusing on gesture, volume and line quality.

    Idiot Apathy: thanks!

    Here is an assignment from my drawing 101 class at USC, three views of a shoe....for the most part I was moderately satisfied with these, except the view of the sole, which I'm fixing right now because the right half is too different in value from the left half.

    note: I rearranged the shoes in photoshop so that they all face the same way

    Oh, and Vilppu's class yesterday was amazing, he did a 25 minute demo and it was absolutely incredible to see him at work, such a light a but decisive touch! At one point most of the class stopped drawing and just watched him do his thing, it was awesome...

    I'll post my class work later today.
