ummm i also won 1st prize for the latest SP at a local exhibition, its a big wad of cash for me so im really stoked! it was hard to finish that amidst art school and work.
OK...well ive just been really trying to step up how much i draw
Been doing a lot of life drawing around trains and stuff, as well as tons of gestures.
i havent had time to do much else so im sorry about that, but ive been getting home at 10 from most nights so yeah very very long days at school/work and no time to scan or post.
and this is basically all from the past week and a half. lot of it is at work and out, but of course i cant post everything since its mostly shite anyway !
Life drawings/...just posting some gestures again
all the dark ones with the fold in the middle are on A2 size so i took photos.
anywhere between 5-10 i cant remember.
on the train..fun but really hard!
during one of the members here called "briggsy@ashtons" lectures (it was on neck/head)
and just fun stuff ive been doing at work or at art school in my free time..i usually spray it with tria ink in some and work on it later while im away from home...obviously some are inspired by the art gods of massive black

Fkn awesome update man! Really really like your figures, awesome volume you get with your lines. Love it. So i assume you go to Julian Ashtons? I've heard its a great school, really interested in it after i finish high school.
Ink some was awesome, pencils are sweet as usual mate.
Whey-hey! Congrats on the win Rodrigo! With the amount of kickassness you've been pulling out recently i'm not surprised.
Ah bother... if i'd only been this dedicated at your age.
CONGRAST BROOOO!!!! good to hear you are getting the recognition
you deserve, and yep you can bet I do read the replies you write har har
nice to see such a nice hefty amount of work, your well on your way towards
greatness mate, thanks for the inspiration boost!
congrats on that 1st, keep it up man awesome and inspiring work u do! cheers

dude, youre getting really good, and all these studies and drawing will pay off.
Ive seen that in your work, some of it is more contrasted than others, and the contrasted ones are much better.
Keep up all this drawing shenanigans!
ohhhh man! fucking sweet man! overwhelmed here by the greatness so Ill just leave you with a question if thats alright, how do you construct your heads? they are always so well proportioned and 3-dimensional, do you use loomis technique or just go from scratch? I have a feeling my proportions are all fucked up so im just wondering if theres anything to do about it Its a pretty big question though, just pretty much wondering if you use any special technique or something...
Well anyway, amazingly your lifedrawing just keep on improving and improving (well ALL of your stuff is improving ofcourse)
Baahh keep it up

yay! very tasty indeed. Interesting to see some experiments and stuff other than pencil! grats on the comp win, that piece was very cool, I still dont know what the blacks are (conte?) very impressive stuff man! keep the pages comin, look forward to the next update
Hey man, i just wanted to say you have some good stuff in here, solid anatomy. keep it up.

hey all, just posting up some stuff done in the past week, last weeks stuff sucked too much to post. theyre all life drawings from my sketchbook pad (A2 size).
sorry i havent had time much to visit your art, ive been leaving home at 8 and getting home at 10 30 most nights so not much time to do anything!!
with some of these gestures i try to get the proportions and shadow shapes in and then add the halftones afterwards in the breaks, so some are more worked up than i would do in the actual time slot. still i had a massive struggle the past week drawing. ill post the rest of them later
thanks for the wonderful support!!
hurricane:thanks man! no you dont!
j a k e: thanks man, when do you finish school?
dirty_c:thanks man. i was sixteen tho. hhaha yes, the days of Nar's
maxetormer:cheers, thanks for the oc session.
Burning Eyes:thanks a lot
Recursive end- thanks heaps
rblitz7: around 17" by 24"? thanks!
iolarnula:thanks, i wouldnt call a fluke steamrolling though
archipelago:thanks so much man. no probs, mainly i think construction techniques are great but you need 3 things- planes, proportions and structure..they all woik with each other. loomis is great for all, 3rds for the face and halfway for the eyes, look at some skulls for structure, and loomis has some great stuff on the facial planes (eg. side/upper/lower). look at all that and then dont stop drawing it
Stay-cheers ! ill try to do some better ones
Sarcophagus:there you go, i use both tip hatching and side for blocking in areas of shadow...thanks a lot!
Spade:thanks a lot man. conte was just for whites. blacks were pencil.
bumskee: ahh man! thanks so much! huge admiration for your work ! dont be so down all the time! coming from me that probably doesnt help hahaha!
Skeiff:thanks dude! hopefully i can do a big update soon.
in chrono order (days)…
10-15 mins + a bammes study
plus i know youre sick of this drawing by now, but i thought it was a cool photo, its an in progress shot before the bg was finished, i forgot to post it before.

nice stuff rodrigo..one thing i notice and is often seen on people who have learned in modern ateliers is the use of straight lines..is good when beginning to use straight lines to get to the curve ones!!..look at any master drawing..i was looking at tintoretto's yesterday you'll see what i mean....there is not a single straight line in the human body , i remember reading from a master saying that this kinda lines reminds him of crystals (i was doing that for a while..but know feel those curves..) ...i dont know if is a modern trend but that makes artist dont look hard enough..yes its good for simplifying planes and looking for geometries within the body,but ultimately the body is convex..
Lovely stuff as usual Rodrigo.
I've still got a year to go in high school. I start my HSC final piece next term. How exciting!
the_allejo05:thanks a lot man for the crit, much appreciated. I think sometimes with the weight bearing limbs you can get away with a bit more rigidity but yeah i think youre suggestion is helpful thanks!
jake- ahhh cool. the journey begins! youll never beat my mark for visual arts, bwahahahahaha
so these are some more stuff..
some imagination stuff from work
memory drawing of a dude i saw..real quick..
life drawing i forgot to scan before, its a couple weeks old + unfinished.
I really like the way you build tone on that last life drawing. It looks as though you attack patches of ground in a fairly random way, but by keeping on doing it, build up texture and tone with it. There's definitely a very alive feeling to the way the light is on the skin of that model. Nice one.
excellent sp!, everthing else is looking nice
Thanks alot for the answer man
woot! I love the sense of life and character in those lifedrawings, excellent! have you ever tried using different mediums on those though? Id recommend trying a more permanent medium like ballpoint or pen, could be interesting to see!
cirtyD: thanks bro i appreciate it
arch- thanks a lot man, yeah ive used pens a bit and stuff with tria markers as well, but the results were ugly. im still very much a beginner, later when if im more proficient at it maybe ill post my other media stuff. thanks!
this is just a sketch i did in between other drawings im working on atm. i think ill develop it more tomorrow and tighten it up.
ho ho! getting wilder by the minute,
the life stuff is pretty asum as well.
The way you smeared this page, gives a really weird sence
of movement to this one, wich I happen to like a lot
oh and just one critic...:d post more of this goodies je je
damn fine work!!! I love hitting your sb...
