And this concludes my massive art dump. Hope you enjoyed, and I guess stay tuned for all the stuff that I should be producing next semester?

Nae mentioned you took an art class, had to check it out for myself. Sorry if that's super old news, don't get on here as much as I'd like anymore.

Some of that stuff is pretty decent, especially the figure work. Not bad for what I'm assuming is your first time doing that sort of thing.

Your still life drawings would probably be nice if I could see them :P What do you have against contrast? Use those darks! Break out the 6b pencil for your shadows to pull out the rest of the image. I used to have the same problem, and every time I drew a still life it was always too light. Make yourself push your darks to bump up the contrast.

Photos are pretty cool looking, never really done anything with that myself so I don't fully understand the process, but looks pretty sweet. Could be fun to experiment more and integrate into some of your more simple cartoon type stuff.

Looks like you got a lot out of your art class, maybe a few more in your future?


Look at my art!

Hahaha, yeah, glad you came by to take a look.

Yeah, last time I took an art class was 10 years ago, hahaha,

Mmm, yeah, those were my first time, and they didn't come out great being documented.

What you do is take masking fluid and blot out the portions of the photos you want to keep. Then, after it dries, you submerge the photo in a solution of bleach and water, and it makes the ink run off the page. The longer it's in the solution, the more ink will run off.

Looks like you got a lot out of your art class, maybe a few more in your future?

Oh definitely, I'm taking another art class this semester, and this one is all drawings, so expect another larger art dump once I'm done this semester. There's gonna be a lot more stuff because not only do we do a lot more in class work, but we also have personal sketchbooks, so there's definitely gonna be a lot more to see.

I know it probably won't surprise any of you...... but I made a pair of nunchuks.

I should probably get around to documenting all the work from my second art class and uploading that......

Time to start uploading the sketchbook work, starting from the top.
For each piece, I'll name the subject and what kind of piece it is.
Hopefully there's an improvement as the pieces carry on.
All of these pictures were taken with my phone's camera, because my scanner wasn't capturing the lines well.

Looks like a good start here. One thing you might want to consider is trying to get in longer lines. It looks a little "fuzzy" which means you're probably inching your way along very carefully to try and capture what's in front of you. Instead "shadow draw" as long of a line as you can before you put your pencil down onto the paper. Then make that line in one fell swoop with confidence. Great drawing is all about having confidence in your lines, and that comes with practice. But you do have to practice it, otherwise you'll only practice timid, short lines.

Here's an example of sorts, if it's helpful: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-RNTyMY2oU&list=UU88alnRehVT XcQ0rRReyLcw&index=1&feature=plcp

You want to first look for the big sweeping lines and then you can always go back in after and add details. Starting with the details and every little bump and curve will only slow down your progress. Good luck with it, and keep at it!

Thanks for the input.
Just want to point out though that these pictures are from my sketchbook during my previous semester of school, starting back in January, till the most recent in April. I've already been told about that issue, and I think I've corrected it by now, so hopefully you should be able to notice it in the later drawings of the set. I'm posting everything so that I can show what I've done and the progress I've made. But I appreciate any and all feedback.
