More Friday Life Drawings

The top drawing was done this morning and the bottom drawing was from last Friday. The drawing I did last week was turning out OK, but then I ran out of time. I always spend too much time trying to get the face right which never leaves me with enough time to get the rest of the figure to a more finished state. I really debated weather or not I should even post the one from today as it's a pretty terrible drawing, but I figure I might as well post my failures as well as my successes. Not that I consider everything else on here a success... far from it. But usually there is at least one part of my drawing that I'm pleased with; there's nothing in the drawing I did today that I'm really happy with. Oh well... better luck next time, I guess.

Life Drawing Dump 3

Well, I guess I had enough life drawings piled up already for this to qualify as a dump. Again, these are all from the Avalanche friday morning drawing sessions and they all took about an hour and a half to complete -- except for the very bottom one which is a two and a half hour drawing that I did today. I'm not sure if it actually looks any better than the one and a half hour drawings though. I've been trying something new lately, using black and brown and sometimes white nupastel and charcoal on toned paper. I think it looks kinda nice; the brown keeps the drawing warm but I can still get some deep blacks and cool shadows. It's a bit more work though. It's almost like I have to do the whole drawing twice. I haven't decide yet if it's worth the trouble... we'll see.

Life Drawing Dump 2

Here's another shload of drawings from the art sessions we have at work. These all took about an hour and a half, which these days, isn't enough time for me to do a decent finished drawing... gotta keep working on it. Hopefully, this will be my last big life drawing dump as in the future I'll post one or two drawings on a more regular basis.

New Avatar

Every once in a while I like to mess around with logo design, and since I needed a new avatar for my blogger profile I thought, why not design a new personal logo. So this is what I came up with.

This is my logo in it's most basic black and white form. I don't know if I'm in love with it, but I guess it works.

Here then, is my new avatar. I hope y'all like it!
