wow, what a cool sketchboook, your quick studies definitly got a lot better already. I mostly like your tonal studies though. Like on your DSGs when you have these subtle variations in color and tone, very nice. Keep at it. I'll try to join in the DSG a bit more often again aswell,
I like the watercolor sky in that factory aquarel, sucha difficult medium to master isnt it. Wouldv been cool if u maybe drew a bit mroe of the background in on which the bum was sitting or lying, although you get enough from the gestures anyway. Love those soft tones in that slug painting.
You sure cover a variety of topics in your studies, i presume you study from picture. Cant imagine that all those bums and disabled people live all on your street. I really like the big studies the most, like your gun flapper, thats just an awesome image. I love the sketchcover too, makes it very artistic.
While the bums of Columbus are full of interesting stories about how their car was towed, the church was closed and their kid had an asthma attack, I would prefer to avoid them. The work in my sketchbook is mostly photo ref.
The larger pieces are in class from a model, and are on much bigger paper (I need 2 passes on a large scanner to get it all)
Today we have some gardners.

15 minutes per little sketch on my own, compared to nearly 3 hours on one large figure with the supervision of an instructor? I think it goes far beyond the difference between photo ref and life drawing.
Studying colors comes secondary after struggling with my left hand to draw, I could do more if it was just color.
Scientist! non are mad afaik.

Circus freaks, side show geeks. Ball point pen, as requested by my assessors today.
Was an interesting day here in CCAD, at 10:30 I took an anonymous survey testing my knowledge of American culture, with such multiple answer questions such as which 4 artist are Afro-American (I made an educated guess) What Iwo Jima, Gudalacanal and Soloman Islands were (I know they are WWII Pacific battles) and if the art shown was African, Native American, European or East Asian (Easy)
At 2:30 pm I had the illustration review - spread out various work on the tables, paintings, sketchbooks, drawings, illustrations...
No digital work, which is possibly the reason they were surprised when I said my goal is to be a concept artist. What do you think? Do I have what it takes?
