Photo taken with a 16 second open shutter exposure. Unaltered other than the editing on the face and addition of the hood. Pretty pleased with how this one turned out
Sup man good to see another washington person posting I'll keep an eye on this thread.

Hey thanks for your comments guys. I guess I was hesitent about posting my sketchbook work because I don't feel like its up to my full potential. The thing to remember is that I only spend 2-3 minutes on each one of those pieces. Something I could never have done with those results before I got to Digipen. I am really excited for the summer when I'll have a chance to put more focus into each piece.
little 5 minute squirrel doodle I did during film history last night, thought it was sort of funny.
good work man, keep it up or abbott will eat you
why do you think he's so fat =p YEAAAAAAAARMP swollows you whole.
good work, try to do more life studies.
N & B
yea i've been trying to make it to our drawing lab every thursday, but its frustrating because we don't have anatomy until next semester. they want us to suffer and stuggle so we value the class more i guess. anyway i'll be in there in a couple of months so HOPEFULLY my life drawings will improve a lot
dude, one thing ive learned at DP, is dont 'wait until we have that class' to learn something, go get some anatomy books start studying, dont let someone else (especially abbott) hold something above your head telling you that they're the only person who can teach it to you, that is just wrong. or tell you that this or that artist is 'ok' to study and that artist is not, you know what you like, go study it, if there is knowlege to be learned then learn it. if i listened or waited till i 'had a class' in something, i wouldnt know 90% of the shit im doing. dont wait for it, go out and get it man, lifes too short to be waiting around. sorry, i have many issues with school lately.
its good motivational advice man. i realize education is what you make of it. just being a digipen doesnt mean you'll learn anything, its having the desire to actually learn and improve +work that makes you better. the one really tough thing about going out and finding and learning what I want is that with the load they give us here I'm spending 95% of my time jumping through the hoops. i do still constantly browse around and look at other artists. i have just started reading some of the loomis stuff and am really excited about it, but i agree 100% with you. my biggest issue is just simpley finding time to do it.
a little 10 minute doodle tonight. just something to get my mind off the sketchbook load. im really looking forward to using my wacom pad more
Very abstract, crazy stuff, man! Here's some advice, work from life as much as you can! And do some studies (anatomy, etc.). They'll help! I promise. And remember to form the figure, make it feel three dimensional. Think of it as sculpting clay. Alot of your forms look flat or unnatural. If you try and do it this way it'll help. Keep it going!
five minute doodle just before bed, no erasing
finals week is right around the corner, getting ready to have my first semester at DigiPen done with, and that feels god damn wonderful
been FOR-EV-VER since i updated. i'll scan some sketch book pages soon. back up for my second year at digipen. should be able to post a bit of photoshop work this semester.
getting into the spirit of halloween. heres a little zombie painting
I've been trying to sketch a few drawings as soon as I wake up in the morning as some sort of personal experiment regarding right/left brain and sleeping.
heres a couple of 5 minute 7am sketches
here are some 8am 5 minute in class sketches
some farting around with forms. i am aware that the ogre's ear is totally free floating from his head. my bad .
heres a just woke up 15 minute of a Titian
and a few animal studies.
digi back lit still life. about an hour and a half time wise. pretty organic shapes. i need to work on that

just wanted to touch it up. quick 2 minute fix, feels a lot better.
Wow, I can really see the progression in your work. You got the hang of digital media really fast, I envy you sooo much. I would say that you might want to try some more full body poses (not nessicarrily nudes, but whole people from top to bottom) since I don't see a lot of them. It might help fill out your portfolio a bit and also is a great way to really work you proportions. I notices that in one of your earlier drawings, the girl looked a bit short in the mid section. Still, you have a beautiful subtlety to your work. Keep cranking them out. As my Senior Studio proff. would say, "More more more, faster faster faster."
See you areound the .org!

Most of the illustrations with the black frame are two years old now, and were my portfolio from Montana State Uni to transfer up to the school which I'm currently at, Digipen. Since then I've had a years worth of life drawing labs and an anatomy course. Though I'll be the first to admit I still have major issues with the basics, perspective, the fluidity and overall cohesiveness of my forms and as you pointed out, proportion. It usually takes me a good hour of drawing from the model before I feel like I'm really warmed up and not producing total crap. Usually when I life draw, its on 18x24 newsprint and too big for me to scan here at the house. I think what I'll do is try to remember to jot a few in my smaller sketch book towards the end of each session so at least i have something to show here anatomy/life drawing wise. Thanks again buddy. Creating is sure addicting!!! I can't wait to do more.
