    This is supposed to be sort of a zombie-esque creature, because on sundays I draw zombies sometimes. Practicing with painter.

    This is a portrait of a guy around the evergreen campus. I'm happy with the overall thing, but I feel like I didn't quite resolve the eyes. Eyebrows give me grief. Also I'm just noting to myself I had some trouble with the beard, like how to make the value dark enough and still suggest the form of the hairs.

    This is a copy after a Rembrandt etching. And the other is envisioning a dragon. My concept of what their wings would look like is pretty hazy. Studies forthcoming?

    My goals are to do some ink washes and to start doing some oil painting.

    So I learned what watercolor pencils are. Seems I had a gross misconception as to their use.

    so this is not the best picture of this, but it will have to do. about 2 hours.
    and a fairly quick sketch of one of my professors.

    ive been outside doing oil sketches every day. they are around two hours each. the picture quality is so crappy on some of them, im not exactly sure how to get the lighting right. ive read a few guides on it, but they still always either have all this reflected light if i have the flash on, or with the flash off the picture is all blurry. nn?

    The bearded guy is nice. I think the rough edges on the beard alone suggests hairs very well, you don't particularly have to draw them per se. You're right about the eyes, however.

    Good start!

    i felt like i was floundering with oils, frustrated in general, so i did some reading. i decided to limit my palette after reading k4pka's painting blog. i had 12 colors on there including black and white, that was probably screwing me up big time.

    i also watched some bob ross paintings, which i had never done, and a few other videos on youtube. that was kind of helpful.

    anyway then i painted this. about an hour probably.

    an unsatisfying picture of my stove. i still want to have these studies be around 2 hours.

    then i thought to myself i would work on a portrait in monotone, and see if i could figure that out some.

    that didnt really work, so i retired in disgrace for the day.
