Some stuff from oh-nine:
2nd of January 2009
eventually turned into this:
And then.. hm well, I did a ton of exercises most of the year, not much doodeling, nothing interesting
11th of February 2009
I put the original on the left, then draw a "construct" with just lines by eye. It's to develop accuracy in judging proportions, still one of my major weaknesses and time-wasters in drawing from life. I usually do them at different sizes and then after the time is up (usually 15 or 30 minutes) I dublicate the line layer, put it over the original image and resize to fit best, then color-code the accuracy. Green = good, Orange = nah, Red = wtf?
I imagine these are incredibly boring to look at but here are some variations for the nerds among us
and maybe a tiny bit more interesting for some, a while ago I started writing down notes
back to other things:

Thanks to everybody at the fellowship, what an awesome group...!!
some things I learned there
some things I've drawn and painted there:
hooope ya diggit!
Dorian those are awesome! The landscape studies are beautiful, and the proportion studies are a really interesting idea, I think I will make those a daily exercise, since proportion is a constant issue for me. It's so awesome that you went to the HRF, I want to go to school studying under Jacob Collins in the Grand Central Academy once I graduate high school, what did you think of him and the other leaders of the fellowship? Thank you for making that other thread on the fellowship, what a goldmine of information. Your journey is inspiring, and although I do not believe I have ever commented on your work, your work and progress has been a big inspiration to me over the past year and has led me to pursue the path of a strong classical realism education. Thank you very much for posting your work up on the boards .
thank you guys
cdejong: that means a lot..!! thank you!
I recommend you go visit GCA and check it out in person to form your own opinion but I think it is an excellent school!
Glad you read and enjoyed that HRF thread
