    Fishies and things

    I'm twenty year old college student studying psychology and a little bit of art. I'm interested in creativity as a psychological process... what conditions are conducive to creativity, how to measure creativity, what people consider creative in artwork, and the motivation behind creativity.


    Some pastels...

    Wow these are really well done. I find pastles to be difficult but you do a very good job of capturing emotion in both of these works.

    You should post some more! =)

    The orange gold fish and butterfly remind me of old japenese prints. I like seeing that you work in various mediums. Your abstract deisgn is very good too...lots of movement and life to it. It looks like it took a while to create... =)

    Sealegs- thanks for the advice! I really appreciate it. I just got a gift certificate to barnes and noble so I may have to check out that book. I would like to get better at heads and hands.

    Some musculature sketches

    I'm glad you posted these last couple sketches of the muscles.... it shows your devotion to improvment!

    I need to do more studies like this and get my anatomy skills up a bit.

    Great location! What is sumi-e painting exactly?

    My only crit. would be that the horizon has a very harsh dark line. It would help if it was faded out or blended into the sky. Remember atmospheric perspective =)

    Tacticallywacked- thanks for the crit... you are right about the horizon line being too harsh. Sumi-e is a traditional chinese ink painting style. =)

    Here are a couple more recent sketches. Please give me some critique/advice!!!!! It would be very much appreciated
