been skimping heavily on personal work

also, it all looks terrrrible.

here is a nudie woman i painted today. 1 1/2 hrs. I think that this is pretty much the highest level of finish I can get to when I do these studies..

oh, and 3 more pages of nudie women.. I've been hitting the anatomy books lately. Haven't scanned any of those in or anything though. ..... I really need to go focus on drawing men instead of women. Whyyyy am I so boring?..

Oh, and the first thing I've ever posted from schoolwork. This is a painting I did for my photoshop class. I'm not sure what is going on, but I rationalized that the girl is going through some ritual involving penguin spirits. I find it kind of 'meh', but it's something different from what I usually do..

It's really been hectic in the last two weeks or so. Schedules being pushed around, making time for things... I've been doing so much of this and that and hustling around to places that I barely did any personal work at all, and I've just been struggling to get my homework and such in on time! It's mostly just because of my bad time management, but I haven't even had the time to update this blog, which sorely needs updating lol. This is the first free weekend I've had in a while, so I can finally get my shit straight. ._. And do some personal studies and stuff - without those, I always feel like I'm being lazy or cheating myself. And since I don't post homework or school things here, it makes for a more boring blog.

This week I decided to start maintaining a tiny life drawing sketchbook, after seeing this guy at red engine over the weekend with one. I'm shooting for five pages a day.. I'm so rusty with it though! Proportions kill me.

In this post - sketch spam! Ah, so many sketches and so little improvement.

anyway, trying to get myself back on track!
oh, and I got my sketchbook signed by James Gurney!
and I got this book signed by Scott Robertson. :D
