    E.M.GIST Alrighty Erik, I'll watch out for that next time!

    the_allejo05 Thanks Allejo, I'll try longer poses in the future.

    Here's what we got done today, here i didnt do much modeling and focused on trying to get my shapes correct (they're still off...by a lot)...I haven't been feeling it too much lately for some reason...hmmm...oh well, I'll just have to fight through it

    Maxine Aww thanks, I couldn't live that far from home though, my family wants me to visit plenty and is having some trouble letting go, even though I'll only be 3 hrs away

    Tony Thank you good sir!

    So, I was talking to a friend who will also be a USC freshman animation major, and he just let me know about Karl Gnass' life classes at the American Animaton Institute, i think they run like 130 dollars and aren't too far from the university...how awesome is that??? I"m so excited, LA's gonna be awesome

    PS. Here's some stuff from today, just random limb studies

    Here's a 20 minute study of my dad during his afternoon nap...it's in pen and i managed to screw up in a bunch of places (like his side and most of his back), but i thought i'd post it anyway...

    oh and since it was a long-ish nap, i did some gestures too...most of them are done when i was sitting on the floor and he was sleeping on his bed, thus the crazy foreshortening.

    Hey there,I couldn't help checking your thread after seeing u gave some ctits to mine,which I'm really grateful for.Sadly I couldn't read this all but I'm amazed of your talent.U know what,I am an animator actually.Don't know what is the educational system there with u,but once u become a character animator, don't stop doing all these art works,as everybody does. Cause in animation it's not quite the same as in the fine art. And as I studyed animation in University,there was no fine art there,sadly!
    But good luck!I think u're a too good artist to be an animator!

    artenemy: thank you for your comments, i definitely plan to pursue fine arts along with animation, i'm going to an animation university soon, but i intend to enroll is lots of classes outside the university to learn to paint and sculpt. Also, glad i could help in your thread


    Here's my work for the day, a study of rubens' "study for abraham and <insert other name>"...took about 4 hours...ish, trying to push myself to be more accurate with my shapes and note subtle value shifts in the light areas (like the back)

    nice work on the rubens..Maybe the left leg is a tad small?? not sure..
    if you want next time work on a toned paper..a cream color..or just about any color will do....no white..simply get some watercolor plus rabbit skin glue size and warm water to disolve the glue.... an alternative can be elmer's glue diluted in water.... the glue makes a film so the paper gets stronger..
    you can tone many papers..this way you can add some highlights which rubens certainly did..also this way you can start modelling the forms with two tones..and is far easy to separate the lights from the darks.. for the white ,school chalk works fine with the charcoal..
    my new site, is crazy stuff but is my own space, I can say whatever!! hehe:

    kumagoro_beam: Glad you like the Rubens study, but hey, don't be shy to crit, my 11 year old sister doesn't draw much but she can sure point out my mistakes!
    allejo: Hey man, I kinda used whatever was at hand that day, but I really wanted to use toned paper. Thanks for the tips on preparing my own!

    Here's our work for the day, tried to do hatching of the sort that Harold Speed does in some of his demo drawings. I was feeling good about the placement before, but now it seems like the nose is too big, the eyes too far back and slightly chubbier than my mom....damn....oh well, maybe next time I'll nail it.

    my humble opinion

    Love to see your thread -there is always something new there!
    As it concerns to my opinion-the first portrait-the woman head-that's teriffic! And the lines look so nice and patiently drawn, with a sure hand!
    But the second one ,Gaspar de Crayer, I think there is some problem with the positions. That's quite a difficult position of the head though!

    artenemy: hey nice to see you around here again!

    Glad you like the portrait of my mom, I was trying to experiment with compressed charcoal instead of vine charcoal, so I ended up hatching a lot more. This one doesn't look that much like her though, and i feel like the nose is too thin :/

    You're completely right about the problems with the Gaspar de Crayer study, I had some trouble with that one and I wasn't entirely satisfied with the result. Here's the original for comparison
