Overall I'm pretty pleased with the result.
Je suis tres desole!!! My internet was down for a while and then i got busy. I am back for critiques and then after this weekend i will put some more of my own work up!
I love that painting even if it isn't my kinda thing. He's really creepy. More MORE!! LOL
Part one of two in a work in progress.
Here it is still in the rough stagesssss.
classroom doodle turned coloured painting
and for good measure here's a moleskine drawing I plan on cleaning it up and re-working the compostion...you know, an overhaul haha
I am praying for exams and winter break to come and go because that marks the beginning of my first art classes! a;sklfjhglakrjsdfhnlvksjdhfgv I'm excited
more basic technical/core studies stuff i've assigned myself.....or whatever
i need to start going to life drawing classes again
the big problem I have (and always hear about) is that there is never enough contrast/value in my lifedrawings.
all of them are either 2 or 5 minutes
Yes, good studies. And keep that moleskin alive... because it has a great start and it's time to update again!
Exams are finally over and I can enjoy a nice winter break
First off is my winter postcard that I drew for my best friend (who is coming back next week!! We are going on a road trip to Sarasota together yay! )
Incomplete Zombie self-portrait of how I was feeling during Exam week.
And of course my best friend...... Toned Paper!
I did some Gouache with this....wanted to work with stranger colours, I'm pretty satisfied with the blue/green highlights.
A lot of Zombies, Beatles, Who, Stones and a irregular incontinuity trip with T.Rex.
Work in progress......I still wanted to finish some of the musical saints that I had sketched out (old project). But never finished.
A LA TIE DYESQUE
It's actually a decently large size.
Your style is becoming more and more drool-worthy... I love that last update and those digi's are great to.
Well i'm not dead.
Mainly i've had school assignments to keep me busy.
Here's what i've been up to.
Traditional Male Outfit from my tribe ( Taino Indians of the Caribbean )
Stylized Personal Poster
School Assignment ( Line Drawing of 5 Objects )
Bad Photographs....i Know
Since I have this new workload my posting will probably end up being very spread apart and full.
I have more stuff but they are silly illustrations, and if you really want to see them you can go visit my Livejournal or Deviantart account.
I'm pretty pissed off right now because the 2D composition class that I'm in is turning out to be a big joke. Time to take matters into my own capable hands.
( honestly the only thing we are doing is cutting out magazine images and making COLLAGES! ...Every assignment....every week! WTF?! )
So if any of you have taken a 2D Comp course, PLEASE tell me what your assignments were so I can do some work to actually learn something!!
I'm going to search the forums for help too.
hey rob.11 i like your sketches dude(pencil and color work)keep posting.
I honestly think that if you don't like what you are doing in class then you should go and tell it to somebody who will listen and maybe do something about it, because sometimes teachers just don't know what they are doing and the students get shafted. As simple as that. You don have to be disrespectful and mean, but you should take control of your learning, whatever level you are at. Ask wbout what you are doing, how it will help you in the long run, what skills are you getting out of it, and how will you be able to apply them to something else.
All of those line drawings look great, especially the camera, but i really like the indian! That one is really cool.
This one its sweet so does the line drawings,
I specially like the scissor, great line control!!
I would love to see a close up of that one
Well heres the deal, photo realism might be your goal or might be
the goal of a given painter, it all boils down to your personal likening,
but don't mistake photorealism with realism, photos tend to flatten
the images cause its a picture taken with one lens as opposed to your eyes,
and the exposition its much less dynamic than what your eyes and
brain can do, now realism can help you to understand how is that
the objects around you work, and the whys about how to draw
a person that looks believable, so you need to be able to understand
the anatomy on higher level to be able to reduce it to a successful
style, theres something called Scale of Iconicity, which is a way
to grade how close or far an image is form realistic representation,
to achieve a good abstract shape (cartoony style if you will)
you need a complex form to being with, and the most complex
forms comes straight form reality, so yes, learning to draw
realistically its useful, it can be your goal by it self, or it can be
the means to to an end, that end being drawing some really cool
comic art, I like the comic art my self, but I respect the
ppl that do representational art as their goal just as much.
Take a look at this page you might find it useful it has
info about the Scale of Iconicity and how it works
any way I hope this helps you a little, and take my thoughts with lots
of salt I'm just learning as I go

My roots and original desire to draw came from Comic books....I guess I've got a mixture of styles going on right about now.
aaand an illustration
this is a bit older, forgot to post it! D:
Comixnut : I've talked to the people in charge and tried to have a conversation with my Instructor...but he is seriously from another planet.
He went off on a tangent about how the 'student' should never ever question the 'master' and we should be grateful etc.etc.etc. So i'm just sticking it out this semester. I've got an A , so I guess I can plow through it. :/
Maxetormer Thanks so much for your advice. Since I posted that I've done a lot more observational drawings and such ( the school day is loooong) My new Drawing teacher is fantastic and has definetly brought up my confidence. So I have all my nice 'realistic' refrences and it lends itself to properly abstract it for my simple illustrations.
I started reading the site that you linked me too, and it seems very interesting...so i'm going to continue reading! haha
Hahahaha, "EPIC FAIL", hahaha. Awesome!
In that first one, you seem to be bending the bones and skeleton a bit much. In the arms, mostly. I know this is kind of a matter of style, but I thought it looked like a bit much.
I realy like your style. And though you might consider your current 2d compostion class a total waste of time, I must admit that your compostions are exceptional and is some of that I enjoy the most about your pictures. Though if that comes from selfstudy or school I wouldnt know.
I'd also want to encourage you in pursuing your own style, even if your parents dosent understand it completely. It's definetly art, and it looks great .
eeee....Sorry i've been gone for so long.
I've been busy with paper work for studying abroad this summer. ( final letter goes out tomorrow! )
But I've been productive and mainly posting at the Sketchtavern ( it's a smaller crowd )
Here's what i've been up to!
Legend of the Ogre Princess
and an observation.
Your post brought a smile to my tired face, thanks for that!
This one is price less bw.
Oh and the Firefly fan art is pretty cool as well, I loved that series to da dead
