    FunFetus- Thanks for the link! That's a really awesome resource. I'm gonna dig right in. I've been really enjoying looking through your sketchbook. You do great stuff.

    I've got a few updates from my computer class. I've never used illustrator before this so these are really simple. I'm just learning the tools. And the wings seem to have cropped themselves when I opened them in Photoshop. In Illustrator when I saved it they weren't cut off like that. I'm going to have to figure out why that happened.

    More stuff. Mostly figure drawings of rather short poses. And one painting...which I don't particulairly like. I'm re-doing it now so any critiques on this, the version that bombed, would be helpful as I paint the new one.

    And my personal logo/signature as created for computer class. The letters are my initials. I'm thinking of drawing a fishbowl around him when I go to the computer lab today. Somehow the idea of fishing in a fishbowl amuses me.

    Been too long since I've last updated. It's not that i haven't been drawing it's just that I haven't been updating. I'll try to get some of the stuff I've done over the past week up.

    This is a small (3x5 in maybe) postcard painting. I'm painting it to mail to my granny since she's not feeling well. It's not done yet. I need to add the crowd walking down the sidewalk and then sharpen up and detail the foreground a lot(street light, and closest cars). Critiques really appreciate on this one. I did it REALLY fast and I never work fast. Plus I want it to be nice for my grandma.

    Illustrator stuff. Still learning the tools. The self portrait started out as an assignment to learn how to trace using the pen. So the guts of this one ARE traced. It was an in-class assignment and we were allowed to mess around with it and stylize if we got bored. I just messed around and ended up with this.
    Oh and in my defense the picture I traced was from Halloween.

    Hehe funny old doodles

    I was just procrastinating on finishing my homework and I found some doodles I made about a year ago to make some friends of mine laugh. They made me giggle when I ran across them on my computer again. The were drawn with a mouse using my left hand. The last one was a joke on the fact that I looked back at these and realized they all had mitten hands.

    Take two on the beach still life. Done on a completely different canvas. I started over totally. I think it turned out a tad better but I'm still not pleased with it. I'll probably at least rework the umbrella at the top before I declare it done.

    Nice update you're having, I like the paintings,
    keep the lines in you figure's clean I did that to till recently.
    If you're drawing clean lines you will learn faster because you remember it better.
    And the airbag thing is Hilarius!

    Thanks for the comment, Flutic. I've been told before by teachers that my figures are too scratchy and I should watch my line. Thanks for the reminder. It really is something I need to watch.


    Been working from Loomis a bit. This drawing took me a practical eternity because I really wanted to get the proportion right so I could learn from it. I'm gonna keep going with Loomis. He's a good writer too! I found myself really engrossed in what he wrote.

    nice start with the human anatomy, keep working on the shading, and work on doing light contour lines first that way its easier to find the good cut out for your shading. keep posting up your art and ill keep checking in to see how your progressing.
