Pool Exhausted

I have nothing to say. I was trying to experiment with new brushes. I think I got that poop texture just right.

Super Life Drawing Old Throwback

These were done two weeks ago. I've been working on my film so no time for studies right now. Especially since I'm in no hurry to finish the anatomy book. I can apparently keep renewing it forever AHAHAHAHAH.

One way or another, there will be a post tomorrow. I've got another stash of life drawing, and one of the them is in COLOUR! Just what you've been waiting for.

Rotary Phone

Finally got to my still life, and it looks like butt. Rendering is not something I like to do, so I stopped after an hour. Maybe in the future I will get better? I will do at least two more B&W studies before I move into colour, depending on how quickly I improve.

I don't know about you, but I'm obsessed with Justin Timberlake recently. That new song of his is rocking my brain.

Now I don't usually do this, but since I've been too busy to draw I'm gonna show you some character sketches for my film that I'll be working on this summer. Studies coming once I pick a roommate.

Taste of Updates to Come

Real short today. Ran errands for most of the day, so had no time to draw. Dipping into my backlog of new art, this is probably my last portrait of roomie Will. He's moving out and I'm never gonna see him again. Unless I go and find him in Kansas. Which I probably will.
Roughly an hour and half.

Cs5 does make you better.

This is my first round of hogarths with cs5 on my new laptop. It's so much more pleasant to draw on this thing, I can't even describe it. But actually I just started using the same method I do for life drawing in my studies, which is, starting with brushes and not lines.

These dudes are positioned roughly in the same poses as the guys from the book, and I occasionally glance at it for reference, however they are lit from imagination. They are in chronological order, done today and yesterday. By the end I started to experiment with different brushes and I think I kinda like it. Got inspired by LINRAN's post on I have a lot more stuff on the backlog, but sometimes I just forget to update. Most of the time, actually. Still life tonight. Finally.

Starting the Machine

First comes the hogarth dump. I started to put twice as much time into these, hoping to render them realistically. However, this is not all that useful without still life practice, which I'm going to do tonight or tomorrow.

So.. I graduated. Everyone's been congraduating me but I don't really feel that accomplished. All I did was not quit school, which, admittedly, would have been a more rational choice if I chose to pursue live action. Anyway I have a lot of paintings on the backlog. I'm starting work on my film tomorrow and returning to daily studies. Finally schoolwork is out of the way. I'm pumped.

Exams Almost Done

I've got time for a breather until the final plunge. If you know what I mean -

Here's a few hogerths. I really need to catch up before I'm forced to return this book to the library.

I'm really putting time into these guys now. I need to learn how form works, maybe even more so than where the muscles are. But I would imagine this will only do me good later on.
