    Jim's day to day record

    Attachment: study 1.jpg

    Ok, so I'm gonna try and be a bit more devoted to my art work. I wanna get myself into the habit of drawing more than every now and again.

     

    This is my start. Just a warm up and some studies.   Date 16/08/2012

    Thanks for the kind words Baxter.

     

    The portrait isn't me, I saw the image an was like "I have to draw you" to quote the infamous Peter Griffin. But as a coincidence I had started a self portrait today. And here it is.

    Jimsday, I find your portraits packed with emotions and personalities. They are whimsical and expressive.

    Thanks a lot Yian and Milli, That really put a smile on my face, and not an uninterested stare into space. 

     

    This is a wip from this months challenge. I'm gonna get on to painting it so I want to keep record of the drawing stage.

    Nice works, Jim. Really liking the line work above, and looks like it will have a great story to it.

    Re: Jim's day to day record

    Oooh really liking their expressions as well as the spacing you've put in with each figure. The sense of them actually existing together is totally there, too

    Sorry, totally misread the original post.  Anyway, I love your portraits and as the others say they are very expressive.  I like the way you utilise colour to add depth and add a bit of character.

    Attachment: water and ink.jpg

    I had a go at some waters and ink today. I have to say I really enjoyed the process. I kept the colours simple, but I'm happy with the out come. I say I'll give it a go again. Maybe something with a bit more colour. 

     Oh also just to add thanks for the kind words. 

    Here's the results. As always comments and crits welcome.

    Just another update. This a life study of a stag. I think. Anyway I think I'll use this plus a photo reference I took to do a colour render of this. 

     

    I hope this is clear and visible.

    Re: Jim's day to day record

    Nice sketch, Jim. Not 100% positive, but it sure looks like an African Kudu to me. One of the more sought after animals they hunt in Africa. ... Here's some images, if you're interested in checking them out. https://www.google.com/search?q=african+Kudu&hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=yEw&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&channel=fflb&prmd=imvns&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=hw1AUN2tJ_GN0QHRp4HYDQ&ved=0CCAQsAQ&biw=1910&bih=1274

    Re: Jim's day to day record

    Thanks Dave. Yeah that dose look like the guy I was drawing. Not to far from me we have the natural history museum, or "the dead zoo as we call it". Its great because you get to draw from life, kinda, ha.  There was one point when I was drawing and I started feeling really crowded, so I looked up to find myself surrounded by about 15 Italian people watching me draw. Weird moment, but it was ok with because most of them where pretty girls. Ha ha good times, good times.

    Edit:Yes Dave I totally agree. Tones of room for improvement. I will most definitely keep tipping at it hoping for improvement. 

     

    Thanks w1r3d I'm glad you like it. That one is for this months challenge.
