almost forgot about these sculptures that i did over the winter break.
Well, second semester has started, lots more homework and the classes gets tougher...Ok...now for the fig. drawing dump from the last three weeks of school, enjoy!
Sketchbook drawing from workshops. Kinda hate drawing small, it's too cheating. 40 min
This guy is the worst model ever. He always falls asleep during the seesion, and he's so damn boring to draw. 40 min
From quick studies workshop 5 min each
ok, now for the 18"x24" newsprint charcoal drawings. Took ages to scan them all in, especially with my 8x11" scanner..... nudes are from fig. drawing class and clothes are from clothe fig. class.
either 15 or 20 mins
40 min structure study
40 mins torso study

First time I've seen your sketchbook and I quite enjoyed spending time browsing through it. I like the way you use pencils and your life drawings remind me of good times at university and school taking life drawing classes and makes me wish I was doing them again because I miss it so much!!
Your studies on page 4 are amazing, keep up the good work and keep updating!
quite simply stunning works here. love your lineart. really like the colors for the last enviro. as well.
To live is to create, to create is to live. Without art and music, I do not know how I would get by in my day to day life.
Im big fan of how you leave part of the drawing to the imagination of the viewer. you detail important parts, and with a very mature approach, you leave out deatails or evern lines which are not needed to get the message accross.
Very impressed to say the least.
Very Very nice man, You inspire me to work harder at my drawing skill. Also i like all the quick line sketches and the shading. YOu make it look simple and easy. Keep the updates coming i look forward to it.
algenpfleger: thanks, dude.
tensai: Thanks, yes it helps my understanding of form a lot! In fact, me and my friend took like more than 600 hundred pounds of clay from school to sculpt on our free time.
Chermilla: thanks, you should do some life drawings from time to time, it always helps improve your conceptual work also.
RandAlThor : thanks, i'll keep it up
Flipnastywebby: thanks, the technique you are refering to is called "lost and found" . Like most teachers says: " only those who have earned the rights can be able to use it correctly.
rupeshtalaskar: thanks, those sculptures were just practice, they got trashed afterwards
MeTaL-Mike: drawing from a live model for the first time can be difficult, but you can improve more if you practice and just go to open workshops a lot
flamable: Yea, it is knida big. I sculpt from a eye leveled view ang the sculpt was laying flat, so that makes it hard to see the proportions. You can't really tell untill you see it from a top view. The classes i have right now does only 2 mins for the shortest gesture pose.
l0stinth0ughts: thanks, making it easy is from lots and lots of practice and learning and finding your own techniques to make your drawings consistant.
Maidith : ty, i try to make it more beautiful by the sec.
A few sketches from last night's fig. workshop with my main man Henry(Sifu) Yan.
Drawing students instead of the model when im bored
And, a 20 min pose. For some reason i always get a side view from this model for like 10 consecutive times now
Your sketches are awesome, I love the ease in which your strokes flow.
Nice keep it up
Choose to live a life that matters.

O.K now let`s ROCK
Hey.. Fantastic work, the second sculpture has real life within it, really think you nailed the expression superbly, I hope you plan to do more. Sweet life drawing too, I'm well envious of you Yan students
Try using less saturated colours on the enviros and keep the hues closer together and they'll look more real.
Great stuff man! full on from me! Not to state the obvious but doing this and more will improve U greatly!
Whew, madd skillz, sir. Keep that pencil smokin'!
Look, see! Nifty art! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=99803
