Wow! You've been busy!
I don't have anything else (productive) to say right now, though... Some really solid work this time, man, I really liked the "football helmet" on Peter Pan. The shading on his face was a good try, but I think you made it a little too round... like a ball, you know? There's a lot more (and I know you know this) "in and out" to the face than you gave him. (There, I guess that was productive...)
There's a lot of other good stuff here, but I'm not going to talk about it. Sorry, I just got off work, and my brain's trying to wake up. Monkeys could do my job! Ha-Ha!
That portrait of you is great by the way! I love looking at little kid's drawings. It gives us insights that we may have never considered before.
Talk at you later!
thanks i was drawing all day sunday.
been doing a little color work, i ran out of yellow on my pallet so it looks horrible.
a oil pastel apple
some art history notes

How... is ... it ... that.... I'VE NEVER BEEN IN HERE BEFORE?!
Ack, ahem; sorry to yell. Just a little strange, you've got some really nice pencil work in here.
Man, wouldn't it be sweet if we all lived near each other? I need some art buddies to study with, sigh!
I like the guy in the robe reaching for the globe, you sir should finish it! Full color! I command it! Well, maybe you should get a tablet first yeah? $90USD gets you a Wacom Graphire4 mate, save up!

nice values and its a bit more confident, energetic.
i also liked where your acrylic was going. you gonna do more of those?

good, your getting it Draw ANYTHING, from a glue stick to a rubber! If you cant choose, place lots of objects on a desk( about 10 ), and then close your eyes, then just pick one straight away, then just draw it, simple as pie! Also, i know you have the motivation, just do it! And if that doesn't work, keep on saying this in your head, i must make Qxzi jealouse, i must make Qxzi jealouse. Which isn't hard to do!
So keep at it, and ddddooonnt stop
thanks a lot guys Qxzi i've been drawing some random stuff for ya but not a lot. thanks Andy P.
ick, this is just gross
this is from a fantasy art type book, its a mermaid's eye
not to productive today for myself atleast. i taught noah(that 8 year old kid) how to draw some stuff. he learned a lot today.

Tony DiTerlizzi? Am I right?
Don't be too hard on yourself on that watercolor piece, It's really pretty solid aside from some small scale issues. One thing about that though, is that you're consistant, and it works...
The SPs are getting really good... In general, this last post was really good. Just gotta work on consistancy, you know?
I'd talk more specifically about individual stuff, but since this is now the top of page three (Page three already?! Whew, you've been busy. It's great to see, and the amount of improvement, too.) I can't go back and look at what's there, and have a think about them... sorry.
Keep up the great work, man! Work and think and improve and work... That's the way we always have to be, right?
zord - thanks a lot dude! gotta keep truckin
zulle - i'm workin on em! thanks.
KC - yeah your right about the watercolor it's not soo bad. thanks to you too.
Always great to hear from you guys! oh i almost forgot 3RD PAGE! yes.
the most addicting game in the world
and this is my latest color work. i think i'm getting a little better :]
like the digi piece man! Your getting there! If you would like to progress even further with digi colour stuff, i would say to do 3 - 4 of them a day! Sounds alot, but it would be worth it! And also, with the life studies, keep them up too! You will get the hang of it when your into day 3 of drawing anything! You just gotta keep on going! And i know you can do it!
Did I miss something? What game?
Yes! That digi totally has what the graphite drawings are missing! I noticed the same thing about the oil painting you did awhile back too (unfortunately, I think about things later... Usually when I'm miles away from the library... and a computer... and on my bike. So I didn't mention it before, but this pic reminded me.). With color, you can get the full range of values, but for some reason it eludes you in grayscale.
At any rate, keep up the great work man.
P.S. Did I say congrats on making it to page three? No, I didn't. Well... congrats on making it to page three!
thanks qxzi. but if i did three to four of them a day i would have no life it took me about 1 1/2 hours or more. oh and sorry no life studies today but i will soon.
KC hey the game is called "N" its a puzzle flash game and i drew the little guy on the page with the girls. he's staring down a missle. you can find it at harveycartel.org/metanet. it's sooo addicting. and thanks for the reminder on values i'll try to think about it more when i'm drawing. umm is it a problem with the fruit from the other page or just the faces or what. cause i guess i can't see the problems
k so i'm observing a junior high art class for my teaching class and the teacher (at the middle school) wanted me to teach portrait drawing. i think i did ok. man it's really wierd drawing in front of a whole class though. and it's hard to think about what you're drawing and tell the students how to do it at the same time. but they did pretty good for being in middleschool. and you get pretty tired after four classes in a row too.
and i've been dying to do a landscape type painting and i finally got the time and inspiration. i really need to use reference though more than trying to remember what i saw on the way home cause i don't know what the details should look like :]

Good job teaching. SO you are taking a class to learn how to teach art?
The Painting is great. whenever a light is surrounded by a dark value the transition color inbetween the light and dark is much easier to see. It's blue pretty much always if the light is a white light. Now this is only if you want to paint realistic. It's more of a optional rule.
It would be great to see a couple more digital paintings.
Also if you use photo reference make sure it's good, or if it's pretty flat just go to levels in photoshop and raise the midtons about 20 and you will be set.
Actually, the fruit on the last page turned out pretty good... I'd totally forgotten about them. Mainly, it was the faces... It's been awhile since we were talking about that, but if it's something you're serious about "getting" then it has to be constant, you know? Basically, the main issue here is contrast... your shadows should be dark and highlights light. I don't know if this is making sense, but generally there's too much overall gray going on in your rendering, making the whole thing flat... Um, the portraits on this last post, for example, work because you took care of the heavy shadows and the rest kind of works itself out. I don't think I'm really making a whole lot of sense here... Maybe I'm just totally off base, and need to just shut it.
Can anybody else help me out here?
It looks like you did a good job teaching portraits there! I'm glad to see how much attention you gave just the eyes... You're totally right about how important they are, and (especially with how popular manga is with the "kids" these days) its so important to learn this stuff before bad habits form. I'm still struggling and paying for some (okay, a lot) of my bad habits.
Sorry if it seems like I'm giving you a hard time, sometimes... I really don't mean to come off negatively.
Keep up the good work, man!
lol @ teacher pennington haha, you're looking good there.
thanks chris for the tips, and KC your not negative it's a big help thanks, Pesmerga, i look like a total goof, but thanks.
heh heh. i don't know what i was thinking but i liked it so i kept working on it.
very, very nice!
keep up the great work! teaching middle schoolers... that's cool, This was the point at which I kind of dove into heading towards doing something with art ... even though they are middle schoolers to challenge them is important. My middle school teacher had me copying vesalius anatomical plates on big blue sheets of paper. Anyways, this is very nice.
That fat guy's great! You might try adding a little darker shadow under his chin(s) and the left (our left, his right) side of his face. More the tone of what you did in his eye sockits (which are just lovely by the way). I started doing eye studies from hogarth and in the mirror yesterday and today... I hope that after awhile I'll get them. Part of the problem is that my (my real ones, not the ones I draw...) eyes are pretty different from probably anybody else I know. Dang droopy Irish eyes...
Keep it up man! You get closer every day!
thanks joel. yeah i started to draw a lot of cartoons in 7th and 8th grade. mostly dragonball z! heh heh, heh... yeah but i really liked to draw then somebody stole my sketchbook and i stopped drawing so much. wish i didn't tho. anyway, you had a crazy teacher! but in junior high the art teachers have basically free reign to do what they want as long as the students are in control and working on stuff.
placeboast, nice sketchbook. i wasn't too nervous i think mainly cause they were young and i knew a ton more than they so no one could really criticize me.
KC thanlks for the advice. and i'm really glad you're studying eyes. hogarth is the way to go i really learned a lot from his eyes.
so i haven't really been too enthused to draw anything in particular lately. cept heads and figures (sorry Qxzi no still lifes) i don't have the patience to draw and so i'm really tight.
it took me about this whole page to get warmed up and then i got board. go figure.
and here's todays stuff.
teaching a class, wow, cool Good stuff, hope your having fun Is it just me has fooxoo posted 2 comments ?
thanks fooxoo! qxzi got a still life for you sorry it's unfinished cause the steak was too good
