Man, I still suck at painting apples! Trying to hit these fundamentals some more.
Trying the deathline btw.
i like how you approach still lifes with big brush when possible, sometimes some of those apples seem little cloudy, like not really there? maybe it is gray or light values? the last apple does not show this problem so it is going better, also whats out for correct angles, the head of the bottle seems to be little off in perspective
good stuff, more

Been a while, updates on my blog. I'm gonna keep updating this for posterity at least. We'll see where it goes I guess.
Currently I'm just plowing through a perspective book and loomis for the figure. It's a nice way to have something concrete to study. Taking lots of notes and trying to really dig in to what I'm learning. More on what I'm up to soon!
Yeah, how is Marlee? she came onto CA, blazed so bright for a while, then vanished...
watch the proportions - many of the things in the previous post are a bit too long.
Sorry for the long wait guys. I think Marlee is doing well, I see her post some things on facebook sometimes. I haven't talked to her a whole lot lately though either. Maybe she'll come back some day!
Not a lot to show right now, trying to figure some stuff out. See you soon!(?)
Guess there's a few things!

Every once in a while I hit a huge wall and end up coming back here to look at my "progress". There's a lot of mixed feelings surrounding this place. Over the past few months I've discovered a lot about the kind of art I want to make, then a movement toward that art, then realizing that I still need to practice what I had been drawing before to really make progress anyway. It's strange to be able to see that mental sludge is the biggest factor holding you back, but it being just about the hardest thing in the world to overcome it.
Well I haven't stopped, and that's about all that can be said!
