Subject title: Elle Tries To Draw

Vixie wrote:That was really thorough explanaition, thank you! =) And it sounds more student-friendly with switching ´majors´ if you struggle. We have educational system more similar to this in Belgium than in the US, so I get it pretty well :D But we end ´primary school´ (pretty much combo of primary and secondary school in the US) at 15 and then choose school with more specialization, but I´m not aware if we have sorted in categories as you mentioned (ASO/TSO/BSO/KSO). But unfortunately you cannot switch between them, because they are so specialized, so you owuld have to start from year 1 again. And then you are pretty much trapped in the direction you have chones at age 15 and you will most likely do it most of your life =/

eh, sorry for so much off topic rambling :oops: also I´m not very cautios person, so i missed the note under the picture :roll: anyhow, keep up the good job, best luck with school and hope to see more stuff on your blog :D

    No problem at all. And it is. There are very few people that actually stay in the same 'major' their whole student life. Your system sounds stressful! Or at least I'd have stress knowing that there was no going back after my choice. u.u

    That's okay! Thank you and I'd say the same about you :)

    Okay .. finally I have the time to update. Unfortunately, most of the artistic class teachers like to keep our work for very extended amounts of time. So all I can show you
    currently is the work from the teacher that does return it and my sketchbook.

    Starting with my sketchbook (in chronological order). A lot of improvement here. I apologize for the terrible scans x.x

    ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage


    And then the work from our observational drawing class. We've basically only drawn a bunch of boxes so far (all freehand of course.. xD).

    ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage


    And lastly - all the digital work I've had time to do since the beginning of school /hides in shame

    ImageImage


    Pffft I love the school I go to, I really do, but the days are so long for me. I go out the door at 6.30am and I come home at 6.30pm. And however much I
    miss being active here, I'm pretty sure I won't be able to for a good while. So I'll just spam you with huge posts now and then. xD

nice pencil shadings! for a sketches it is cool, however, I suggest to push the values a bit more for practice reasons (might also be the scan...). nice stuff anyway!

    Thanks a lot! Yeah .. I'm having a lot of trouble with my values in traditional work. For observational drawing my score is currently around 50% because I just can't figure it out. x.x

    Was really hoping we'd get back all our paintings from the first trimester before the exams .. but unfortunately that
    isn't the case. So I snuck a picture of my latest work before handing it in, an eagle in black and white with watercolors. ^^

    Image

    Will post more of my recovered work after the exams. C:

I like where that horse portrait was going, you can really feel the depth because you put almost no detail on the hindquarters.

About your boxes, where you told to make them orthographic? If not, I really think they'd benefit from having more convergence.

    Thank you!! And yeah -- that's probably a good idea. xD

    I hate hate hate hate hate this. I finally get more comfortable traditionally (will post
    some of that this weekend) and now when I try to do a digital piece again it's like I've
    forgotten how the hell to work with photoshop. Grr, so frustrated. x.x

    I gave up on my Epic Santa illustration, maybe I'll come back to it one day.
    Painted a self portrait to make up for it this morning, aprox 2-3 hours. Lost
    my patience at the end and so deemed it as finished. It's painted from a
    photograph, side-by-side. Colorpicked the flats.

It's been a while since I visited your post, and I can see a lot of improvements!
I love that eagle piece, it looks cool!

Those faces are bomb. I love how creepy you made some of them look, especially the one with the clamps attached to the mouth and eyelids. That one is the equivalent of nightmare fuel. ;-;
Hey there! My name is Jeoffrey Robinson, but you can call me Jeff, or anything you feel comfortable with. I have been drawing for nearly a year now, and am just getting back from a long hiatus. I am eager to start improving again and finally get good with art!

    I've been doing mainly commissions lately, and having a lot of fun with it. :)

    Image Image Image

    School is also going better. We recently tried color pencils for observational drawing
    and I was expecting a huge failure since I've never used color pencils before, but prior
    digital knowledge blessed me and I'm quite pleased with the results.

    Phew, been a while since I posted. Really want to become active here again, going to try my best. ;^;

    Here's some of my recent traditional work, a bunch of sketches and a painting (too lazy to scan, don't know why they're turned sry).

    Thanks Oli ^-^

    More portraits, pretty happy with the purple-haired guy.

    ImageImage

    I am glad I'm doing so many, because y'know mileage. I know my construction and form is getting better through doing so many.
    But I feel that they're getting boring, losing interest and appeal. I don't know. I'm going to be starting a new, more personal project
    soon, and I'm curious to see if my personal work will be more interesting than commissions. Let's wait and see.

    I've barely shared anything from my painting class this year, because the teacher refuses to
    return our work. So I made sure to snap a photo of my red pepper when I saw it on the wall.
    Random post, but I actually really liked this study. It only took me about 1hr30min, which I
    was ecstatic about (less work at home xD). Ignore the fact that my blacks are so intense. ;^;

Ooh I really like that head painting. The way you curved your brush strokes around the forms of the head makes it feel very believable without needing too much extra rendering. hey why are the colors so dark tho some people like to browse the forum at low phone brightness >:[
I'm kidding, of course ;P
