    Studies.....from life and from the masters

    UPDATE: My name is Ramon Hurtado, I'm a 21 year old art student currently in Los Angeles. My sole aim is to work hard in order to master the craft and create paintings that express the beauty of the world around us, like my hero Mariano Fortuny.
    Feel free to leave comments and critiques, all feedback is greatly appreciated.

    UPDATE: My name is still Ramon Hurtado, now I'm a 19 year old art student applying for illustration (Ent Arts) at Art Center for spring 09, hoping to get some sort of scholarship. I like to think my goals are simple, I want to get really really good at drawing and painting As always, comments and critiques are greatly appreciated!

    UPDATE: My name is Ramon Hurtado, I'm an 18 year old freshman in USC's animation program, but my interests have shifted toward painting and illustration. My current inspirations are: J.C. Leyendecker, Hals, Dean Cornwell, Velazquez, Repin, Sargent, Zorn, Sorolla, and Rubens.

    I'm desperately trying to get better and every comment helps, so lemme have it!


    Original post

    Hi everybody, i havent had much luck with replies in the SB section, and i just recently started looking at this section and all the great work here, so i decided to post some of my studies for some much needed critiques.

    A bit of bkgd, my name's Ramon Hurtado, i'm a high school senior right now and will be attending USC's animation and digital arts program in the fall. My goals are to become proficient in representational drawing, painting and sculpting and to ultimately become a character animator. As of now, favorite artists are Sargent, Goya, Michelangelo, Copley and Rubens.

    Anyway, on to the work!

    some cast studies and drawings after sculptures in balboa park

    Nice work. You're on the right track. And if you are serious about improving your art, this is the section to post. you'll recieve the most helpful comments here. The other sections are mainly for those who want ass pats and ball rubs, except of course for the critiques section where you are generally told how much you suck. If you want specific comments try posting only a few pieces at a time. It's overwhelming to try to comment on a large quantity like this, but I give you much credit for your obvious hard work.

    Strange coincidence that every man whose skull has been opened had a brain.

    Hi IILooney, thanks for the response, this thread does seem really great, I'm really excited to have my work here. I apologize for the large volume of work, haha, just goes to show that I should've started posting a long time ago, from now on I'm going to be posting works as I make them, so definitely less at a time.

    And with that, here's a titian study from last night, I'm also starting to paint my first "commissioned" portrait, so I'll post more on that when I'm done

    I have to laugh
    we are working from the same books.
    I can tell
    you do it better than I do though

    beautiful work
    chaos

    To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.

    Hey panchosimpson, nice work! I really like that last piece, seems like your shading skills are growing already, even the reflected light looks good (I'm really struggling with that ). Is this from a master work too?

    Keep it up

    Woke up this morning, found out my signature was gone..

    hey Coen, thanks, this is from life, it's my little sister (she's still mad at me for making her sit there for 2 and a half hours lol)
