    Welcome to CA. I wouldnt worry about getting into CCAD. Id say you will get accepted into there, no problem. Ive just been recently accepted myself for next fall. Youve got some all over skills. The only critique is to use some cleaner lines when drawing and take your time on them as well. Ill be checking back here for sure and hope to see you at CCAD this fall along with the countless others from around the country and the world.

    I thought I would use up some of my tiny tiny canvases.

    Here is a wooden shoe

    and I used the already mixed colors on an orange

    Hmm, portraits are hard on such a tiny canvas.

    I picked up a moleskine the other day and I've had a chance to sit down and sketch a bit.

    Most of it is just bridgeman

    Great SB, mate. Your latest self portrait shows a lot of improvement from the previous. The colors are much livelier. Looks like you're putting the moleskine to good use as well.

    Love the latest portrait and tac paintings.
    What to say but keep it up! And some more pencil studies?

    Nice anatomy work in the moleskine (it's a bit hard to see because it's so light, but maybe that's my moniter's problem).
    I like your quick strokes and highlights in the male figure study.. and what everyone else said (and more pencil work, maybe with shading?)
    Keep it up!

    You really seem to grasp anatomy well!

    And your charcoals are awesome. Nice movement in your work- lots of mood. Looks to me like you've already gone to art college. The male figure like he's moving, even though relaxing- which I think is neat.

    And as for your computer generated work, very nice! Somehow it doesn't look like you used Painter for it, but perhaps some other program? MSPaint, perhaps? Illustrator? I don't know much about the programs out there... Anyway, it's a neat style.

    So how small was your canvas? Why not post some dimensions?

    I was going to say your drawings are the strongest but now I'm not sure. All in all, very very nice. Are you thinking of majoring in fine art?

    Oh, and I had never heard of "Moleskine" before I read this post...

    i really like your vector work. your charcoals are great too, i like the ideas you have running with it. You should keep that up.

    as for your recent pencil sketches I can't really see them but it looks like you've got the right stuff goin. Can you darken them up next time you post?

    Thanks, Actually I have gone to college art classes part time during my last 3 years of high school. Usually just one class a quarter.

    I'd certainly be happy about that plein air painting- those things scare me. I started one once but it's like 4% done... or less...

    I admire how you put so many different varying colors on. I always have a problem with that part- I want to do everything in layers, like how I do my oils, and I have such a hard time with mixing.

    May I ask how long it took you to do that painting?

    Love that landscape. If there is one thing I wish I had the time and energy to do more, it has to be plein air. I only did 3 during the community college painting class here and it was very rewarding. It's the best way to learn colors if you ask me. As for the painting itself, the placement of the bridge is awkward, it's leading my eyes to the right edge of the canvas. I think if you add a bit more canvas space to the right, it will balance things out.

    The corner of the eye is supposed to line up with the outside wings of the nose, so your eye in your self portrait is too far to the left (and a wee bit too big perhaps?). I do this all the time myself... x) I have problems drawing both eyes
    I like your plein air painting! (and agree with above comments)

    Good sketches. They look proportional, which is good, but they seem very scratchy. I would like to see some longer studies. Especially with your traditionals.

    Looking good alvarado. A tablet is really fun to use. Try to use longer and larger brush strokes. It will save you time and make your images look more solid. Careful with the shading on the ball as well. The core shadow should follow the form (sphere) and not the shape (circle). The highlight should only be a small round bright spot as well, since it's where the light reflects directly into your eyes.

    Bags of talent here. Charcoal portraits with skulls and horns are particularly good. I'd like to see some of your work a few years into the future.
