So I have this drawing project that I should be doing... but instead I ended up just doing a bunch of stuff in my sketchbook. I hate when art classes interfere with my art. Here's some schtuff.

Basically going for the tall dark and scary type you hear about in the horoscopes

I stuck it to the Man and used oil pastels to color up this sketch. It was my first time to ever use them, kinda fun! but I definitely need to practice with it

Random creature drawing. I really need to improve my imaginative drawings of people and creatures. Sorry the quality isn't to good, it was really late at night when i took this picture and the lighting isn't ideal for photos in my room, but I think you can get the idea.

And well, these weren't from yesterday, but I decided to put them in anyway. Theyre 30 second -1 minute poses from FEWS on Friday. Again sorry for the poor quality and somewhat rainbowish backgrounds. While my phone is awesome at taking pictures outside and with natural light, its not too good at shots of artwork.

Hehe... I like your creature drawings. Cool design on that! Something I think you should focus on is the proportions in your gesture drawings. It's hard to get all of the information down in 30 seconds, but try to make sure that you get the basic forms down. Especially watch the head--it consistently seems a little large.

But...yeah! Wow! I can't believe how much you've improved this semester!

Cool work Gordon!! I love the first one. I really like the creature design too.
Another thing you could think about is to add some sort of face on the gestures. This is something my figure teacher really stresses and it helps a lot...even if its just really quick and simple.
You should post that portrait you did at Costume Night earlier this week that was great!

Hey man! you have some interesting things going on here! I especially like the first one. kind of different from what I've seen so far. I think the desigin is cool, with the angularity in the face, and the structure seems to work well. I'd love to see more of that!
