OK, well after several days of holidays, no internet, a busy work schedule and a break up; I am now BACK!! :D (please, hold all appalause till the end)
Now, I have been working on amny things lately. Here are the pics to prove it.
So I've been boning up on my anatomy by taking these dvd courses called "Structure of Man" By Riven Phoenix. Let me tell you, these are amazing tools to learn anatomy, even if its just a refresher course. And once I start watching them I'm hooked and watching them till 11pm-2am at night. They are that good.

Ok so now I FINALLY have some time to talk. School is now over for the next month. Most people like or have to deal with the holidays. Working, spending money on loved ones, etc. In other words, they don't produce any art. I am determined to not be that person. I have constructed an illustration regiment that I will practice everyday till school starts again. Today was 1 hour of anatomy while watching River Phoenix's "Structure of Man" dvds, then started a portrait drawing, read "The skillful Huntsman", worked on thumbnails for the next school project about the big bad wolf and then did a cloud study. Here's everything I did today:

Once I'm done I will try the "Donato Method" of making a printed copy, of the drawing and then using matte medium to mount it on a board and then painting on the copy of the drawing itself.
Here's a better drawing.
And this is how we did her makeup :P

so I started the two paintings today and blocked them in. I used blue black and flack white on plywood. My teacher, Ralph, told me he's never seen anyone use this type of plywood for painting before so he and I are both intrigued with what the results will be. I have some idea. Theoretically, the texture should peak through. But with some thick passages, the texture will be mixed with painted textures and be more integrated. Right now the texture is too distracting. But, this is sophomore year. A year for experimentation. But this texture is intriguing.
