*pats self on the back*
So I finally went out and baught a new digital camera! Woohoo! and a bonus I got a new scanner/printer with it as well!
So I resnapped some old life drawing and some new ones. You can actually see the attention I gave to line quiality, and tone. Unfortunately I do life drawing with animators. No disrespect to them but for $%^& sake can we do some longer poses pleeeeeaaaase!? So the max I can get is 15minutes for a pose, which sucks, because I'm trying to study more in depth than just quick line work and gesture. As you can see I started rendering the hair, in my earlier drawings. but as I become more accustomed to my time constraints I begin to make larger broader strokes to show hair, and leaving some areas untouched to show highlights. Optimally I'd like to do atleast one hour studies, but with 3 hour classes animators get fussy when they have to draw longer than 15mins. No complaints here though, coz I'm not exactly paying for all my sessions. I'm just glad to be allowed to sit in. Anyway, I've posted my drawing chronologically(left to right - earlier to latest). Fellow artists please C&C!!
Once I get my scanner setup I'll scan some creative/illustrative pieces I've finished. I'm horrified the scanner will deteriorate the drawing with it's crappy quality so I'm holding off. As well I've noticed my blogs getting a little cafe/life heavy. So more fun stuff to come soon. Stay Tuned!

Some cafe studies I've been doing. I've been doing a lot of life drawing, and been getting some great results with the new techniques I've been using. But my camera takes horrible pictures so I'm looking into a buying a new digital camera. But at the same time I want something to do photography with. So I'm leaning towards picking up a digital SLR camera. Any suggestions would be great! Enjoy.

Some Life drawing I did at TSA. Trying something new. I was fairly happy with the results I got from this. Working a little with tone, and line weight. I picked these techniques from Henry Yan's Life drawing. I really need to invest in a proper digital camera the one I have is absoloute garbage. I apologize about the poor quality.

A small selection of work I did this weekend. My digital camera is just garbage so the life drawing piece looks all crooked and the colour..... well you can see... But I wanted to post it because the lines are still there. I really enjoyed the results of the big lady I drew on the second page (sitting, near the middle of the page), I think I was really able to capture the pose right. Anyhoo..... Enjoy, hope everyone in toronto enjoyed the excellent weather, I know I did.

Who's bandit!? He's the silly raccoon that keeps me awake at night. My bedroom unfortunately overlooks the garbage area in my apartment. Luckily there is no smell. But this giant raccoon comes byt every night to rummage through the garbage. I would imagine he's the happiest raccoon on the planet. He has buffet on his plate every night!
The rest are just some cafe drawings.
