Advanced Figure Drawing Stuff

Wow. It took forever for these pictures to upload... but I think it will be worth it. (hopefully..) 

Aside from my current frustration with technology, things are going pretty well! I am working on a couple freelancing projects this week. I can't even begin to tell you how much fun I am having this summer already! ^-^ drawing is the best thing.

So this post is a bunch of stuff from my Advanced Figure Drawing class this semester... it's all the in-class work that I never got a chance to show you guys.
I also was a little lazy and didn't crop the photos.. I figured you guys don't care... right?? There are a couple funny things you can see in the background... like the Christmas card my family sent out last year. I'm wearing reindeer antlers. Look for it, you know you want to see it.

Fashion illustration attempts... it was definitely my weak point in the class.

A creepy smooshy-faced girl... but look at her boots! Makes me want to draw comics.

It looks like she is wearing a mask.. I did it on purpose/accident. She is secretly a hideous creature underneath.

The prompt was to draw the model as a queen... this was definitely one of my favorites for the semester.

This one is funny cuz we had to draw the female model like a guy with a mustache and a top hat (heh heh)... isn't she dashing? 
Weird poses...

.... and more weird poses.

Practice with expressions... the pig is the best.

Probably the most realistic figure drawing I did all semester. The class was a lot different than I thought it would be, but it was so much fun!

Sketchbooks - Part II

This week has been pretty rad... busy, but rad. I thought I would show you guys some more drawings from my sketchbook this past semester. I really am missing school... more than I thought I would! 
These are mostly strange drawings, but I hope you enjoy them! And make this coming week the coolest week, buds!

Sketchbooks - Part I

Hello fellow humans! I got my assignments back! I am so stoked to show you guys a little peek into my sketchbooks from this past semester. I am planning on having another post about the process of one of my drawings in a couple days... I think it might be fun. I am really proud of the page of hands I drew and the Emily Dickenson drawing.. let me know what you think! Enjoy! ^-^

The cup with the sexy legs was a collaboration with a bunch of my friends. Lovely, isn't it?

mostly turquoise stuff

Yeah, yeah, yeah... It's been over a week since I updated this blog, but I decided that updating on Wednesdays will be the best for me this summer, so lets plan on that! :D It was my birthday this week, so cut me some slack, yo! 
Still waiting on getting all my finals back, but I should start posting sketchbook/finals stuff next Wednesday! So get stoked for that, dudes. 
Here are some drawings I have been working on... Apparently, blue was my color of choice for the week.
I got this new gold metallic marker that I have been messing around with... I really like adding details with it. With this doodle, I got a little carried away... heh heh.

This drawing was done by my good friend Alex for my birthday. Its a drawing of me destroying a reptilian creature. You guys have seen his stuff on my blog before, so why don't you just go check out his stuff? He rocks... visit it right HERE!

I decided to draw a self portrait the other night... besides the silly cartoon I did of myself, I haven't done a self portrait since high school. This definitely means a lot to me and its one of the few times where everything turned out exactly how I planned it. I am so proud of this.

Ta-dah! I made this bowl and just covered it with doodles... fun, eh? (See? I told you everything I've been making is drawn in turquoise blue!)

Well, I hope your week has been awesome! Talk with you soon!
