Dude the chicks of post 374 are excellent. Best you've done. You've found just the right balance between lines and shading or whatever. And the gestures you've been pumping out are great too. ...What has become of me
Jamesy- thanks brother.
Alexandr Pascenko- thanks man! I fuckin love you man.
jackpot_anjr90- ahaha, thanks man, Im glad you liked what you saw, I definitely got to keep moving forward.
Kyle Steed- Thanks buddy. Im down to do studies with you anytime.
deanna- Things have been rough. No employment and lots of emoness.
Mark Vatsel- Haha, I looked at your comment and decided to post. Im a real big jerk, and I don't know how to stop it.
well, I have a bad condition of working really hard for a short period of time, maybe a month or so, and then I slip into a deep boredom where everything really dulls me to death. I end up leaving CA and turning off all my messenger services to hide from all the art people. I begin playing video games and diverting from my art studies and then just end up missing what I was doing (drawing) and come back. I don't know how to stop this from happening and if anyone has been through a similar situation and knows how to stay focused, or how to get rid of that boredom. I don't know, maybe I just don't really enjoy drawing that much? Or am I being worn down by the constant drawing? This really slows down my progression, and I do want to end this cycle, but I don't know how. Whenever I say I will stay focused and do it right this time, I end up falling back into that cycle of boredom and my focus shifts.
Anyways I want to keep studying and get good enough. I kind of gave up on the art job search after not finding anything for a long time, got a normal job cleaning floors servin burgers with a bachelors degree. I want to stay focused at least.
Heres what I did do over that break period which shouldn't have happened. Not in any order. I'll try to keep it up, maybe you guys have some tips to stay focused.
Ill have a look at everyone's sketchbook tomorrow morning.

Hey Dennis, nice to see you posting again! I'm sorry to hear about the job hunt, I'm sure things will get better once the economy's good again. I don't really have much to say about the boredom issue other than I suppose it's just a natural thing that occurs. Luckily for me the past couple years I haven't gone more than a couple days without drawing something(actually I can't really remember even a day without drawing...). A few years back when I became an art major down in Oregon, I tried to force myself to a routine of drawing everyday...but that didn't work too well as I easily got bored of it and lacked direction. It wasn't until a few quarters in that I found some random sketchbook on this site and realized that maybe I was lacking influences and inspiration to draw stuff. There was so much information and images to take in that it overwhelmed me for the first few months...so much so that I switched my chosen career path and transferred up to AiS. I think the main thing that has kept me going since then is just actively finding new things that influence me to draw and paint. There's always seems to be a new blog or a new sketchbook to dig through and analyze. I probably have hundreds of website addresses and artist's names written down in my sketchbooks that I go back to and reference from time to time. It really keeps me going on an everyday basis. Also, I think just being around other people who are ambitious with their goals can rub off on you the right way. I had to bug a few people last quarter to get the concept art club started again, and now that it's up, I've met quite a few individuals who are quite talented and we push ourselves every week with assignments and such. I'm not sure if you can still get onto campus, but you're welcome to join us (thursdays at 4:30 in NC 104). Haha, I said I didn't have much to say...but I got carried away, lol. Come to the life drawing sessions again, dood!
Jamesy-haha, thanks man. I felt really bad that that i wasn't posting and as time went by I kept telling myself i'd post something and 2 months passed by and damn its so hard to get up in the morning sometimes and get right to drawing, but I gotta do it. Shit im full of regrets but whatever I gotta think of the future. So life drawings are on Thursdays, or is that concept art club?
I wish I had more time to draw, all I could get through with my crappy fulltime job. Anyways thanks for looking.
just a few things I did for daggers still lifes so far. Havent finished any yet, gonna try to finish the last one. First attempt I did was the apple then the cups and now I'm trying to finish the bowls.
