jackpot- Thanks so much, man! Thanks for the advice, too.
Yautja- Hey, dude! Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for the advice. Actually, last session, I did change my approach and medium, and it did indeed make all the difference!
Hah, I know just how you feel. This is actually my second time writing this response. ConceptArt.org shorted out when I started attaching my images last time I wrote this.
So, the big news is, Jason Manley has confirmed that I'll be getting a half ride scholarship! Suh-weeeet! Now the hard work begins. I've been hoping to get by on freelance art jobs, but those aren't coming in with regularity, and it won't cover the cost of TAD anyway, so I'm going to be returning to the daily retail grind here next week. I'll also start work on some serious portfolio illustrations, so that I can hopefully get some more freelance illustration work to supplement my income. I have some ideas, which I'll share with you as soon as I draw them.
For this update, I am sharing with you the final pages of my little hardcover sketchbook, which began with those skeleton studies I posted many pages and a couple of years ago. I work in multiple sketchbooks simultaneously, and go long periods of just painting digitally with little sketching, which is why it took me so long to fill this one. Does anyone else get a little emotional after finishing up a sketchbook?
Anyway, these are the quick observational sketches I've been doing for my life drawing class. They are mostly caricatures of my classmates, of varying degrees of accuracy and exaggeration. Hopefully you'll be able to spot some recurring characters.
The last few images were drawn during a recent critique, which offered an excellent opportunity to capture likenesses and personalities.
As I mentioned you Yautja892, this is my second time making this post. CA pooped when I tried to post it last time. I hope it works this time.
