Wooo, new thread!
First of all, sorry about the enormous amount of pics here, I'll try and update more regularly so that doesn't happen again haha
I'm 20, currently living in Los Angeles, and these are all (except the last 3 portraits) from my first term at school (10 weeks at LAAFA) that I've just finished, most of it sucks, but I think there's a nice progression at least Hope you agree!
If you like what you see, hate it, or have anything to say that you think will help me improve at all then please, don't be shy!
It isn't ALL pages of gesture drawings btw, there's better stuff further down
Having a little fun in an uninstructed class, why not?
2 light sources, ouch..
I HATE this one...
I'm quite happy with this though, not because it's particularly good at all, but I only had about 30-40 mins to rush through it and I think I did pretty well with the time I had
This and the drawing below with 2 figures side by side are the only things worth showing from my sight size block-in class, I'm actually quite happy with them though
The head on the side was my teacher's, sergio sanchez, not mine :p
I started running out of time with this one so I decided to quickly just hatch in all the shadows roughly instead of being really smooth with them, I actually quite like how it came out
If you got this far, thanks for looking!

Wow, this is a really good start. Those first few pages of life drawing are especially nice.
I really like some of the portraits too. It's really cool that you've picked up on some facial features of the models though I think you might be exaggerating them a bit too much which is easy to do. I know I do that a lot!
It'll be cool to see the next update
Thanks for the comment stew!
Okay, so... I really suck at updating. Here's some new stuff though

Wowie! Your figure studies and portraits are great! =D I can see how your line work has become more fluid compared to your earlier drawings. All I can say is keep doing what you're doing! ^^

|| sketchbook || up+running
Oooh, 2 comments, thanks guys!
Here's some stuff from my sketchbook that I didn't put up yesterday, I thought it would be a nice break from life drawings of heads and naked people
These first few are studies from claire wendling, as recommended to me by Mr. Ron Lemen
The rest of these are all from either life or imagination, I'm sure it's obvious which are which
(this one was actually from a photo a friend sent me, the shell was from life though)
not sure where i was going with this... The horse was actually a quick sketch of a random little plastic horse toy on my windowsill
drawing of the kitchen at school
Just a quick portrait and a few 5/10 min poses
I've not used colour at all in far too long and just wanted to have a little fun with the portrait, especially as I did it just after 4 hours straight of cast drawing
The model for the portrait was a redhead with fair skin so of course I used orange
I don't have a scanner so the background got a little weird but whatever, I like it more this way!
Thanks for the comment man!
I'm really enjoying school, it has its faults, as all places do, but I've learned an absolute tonne so far and I'm only 2 quarters down
These first images are all in my sketchbook from life, mostly done pretty quickly
One of my friends doing homework before a class
Yeah, teeny head, I know
Mostly made up, it was one of my friends during a model break at school but pretty much 30 seconds after I started drawing he got up
Another one of my friends at school, this time during cast drawing :p
Aaand another friend at school, this time during lunch waiting for a class
These next 3 are my attempts at some character designs, I need to do a lot more...
"a diver with squid arms"
The rest of the pics are from school
arm study time!
Trying to be a bit more creative in these little portraits
full page 18*24", around 15mins, had to really work fast and loose for this one!
wish i had some more time on this one... oh yeah, and ignore the face
Gonna give this one to my grandparents for christmas Needs some work still though... Think I'm gonna soften the arm shadow, add some tone to the shirt area and darken the background. I don't really want to lose the hair into the background too much though, I like the s-curve gesture it's making... Gonna just have to be careful i guess
Speaking of my grandparents... Check out my amazing new toy my grandpa gave me on thanksgiving
His old hasselblad camera, perfect condition, I actually couldn't believe it! Time to go buy some film
For anyone unfamiliar with it, here's an example picture taken from one ;p
Just a few more for now, a quick stereotypical artist drawing i did in a car ride to the amazing getty, a life drawing from in my grandparents car, and a few master copies of some arms
great sketchbook! And awesome camera by the way
"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye."
Just keep going Jeremy and keep studying.
Another long delay.. Oh well, here's another big dump, some more life drawings (all short poses), some sketchbook stuff, and a cast
Thanks for the comments rhoads/ james!
Just a little update this time
I never noticed before I saw it on the screen, but the head is too small in the middle pic... I kinda like the rest of it still though
The last pic was about 40 mins, first 20 being just lines and the second 20 working on rendering
Annnnd some more
Studies of raphael and michelangelo, and 2 little drawings of people while I was watching an amazing painting demo by ignat ignatov
cool start for your sketchbook alot of progression shown just on this page
keep it up and have a good one
sketchbook updated October 6th
Some naked people to start off with, standard
This one took slightly longer, about an hour or so, it's also a lot bigger
anatomy studies of the back from life, had to really think for these... the obvious darker stuff ron lemen did on top of my drawings
Not my best portrait ever... I don't really like the rendering technique I had to use, but I'm posting it up anyway
Quick sketchbook drawing at school
I like this last one, me and two other people from school all put bits into this
Just a little post this time, a few things from costume quick sketch today, 3 and 5 minute poses
Our teacher (mark mcdonnel) brought in some animation paper for everyone to try and I have to say, it's actually really nice stuff
Little update since I haven't posted anything in a while
Studies, gestures, and sketchbook pages
Starting with some naked people
Slightly longer pose, obviously. Not happy with the enlarged hand though.
Arm anatomy studies from life, not easy, the arms are such a maze...
Quick little head studies, not too happy with these... Trying to think a bit more constructively rather than just carefully drawing what I see
Costume gestures, shorter to longer poses (shortest is 2, longest is 5)
Sketchbook pages, 2 master copies, 2 quick head drawings from life, and a doodle chicken creature
(this one is actually unfinished, but all the major pieces are in place and a finish would just mean darkening and gradating areas, I'll probably finish it at some point, but I think it's solid enough as it is to post)
All figures and a skull
The skull was from life, and the figures are a mix of life and one master copy
The clothed figures I did during jury duty, as well as the prud'hon copy
I haven't posted in ages... I'm no longer in school full time after having ran out of money, but I'm still in class once a week. Here's an old drawing from a David Kassan workshop, and 2 paintings
I'm finally at a point where I'm not totally embarrased of every painting I do
The paintings were both sketches done in one sitting for larger more finished versions, they're pretty small, only 8x10 inches
I did a bigger finished one of the red one, but I prefer the sketch really
For some reason it's really hard to take a good photo of a painting, but whatever
(this is cropped, I'm not a huge fan of the full picture)
Close up, this is bigger than I painted it

Nice updates and improvement. I think for your figure drawings, studying the structure of the skeleton will def help you to understand what you are drawing. I also notice with some of your 3/4 views, your noses seem a little big. That might just be me.
