Critters from my headbox

Sketch Pages 189-194

I didn't realize I was so close to page 200 :D

I'm trying out Vilppu's way of drawing gestures. The emphasis of each drawing is attitude and gesture rather than exact form and proportion. You're not supposed to draw contours although I "slipped" and drew some. oops :P
These gestures were a great way to loosen up. I think that as long as they are traded off with detailed studies of form and weight they could be really handy.

Sketch Pages 178-180 and a PS fail

Lots of sugar and no sleep make Camille go something-something...

eye studies
5 minutes each

And my piece of crap Photoshop study. I don't understand what I am doing with Photoshop.
It feels like I'm flailing at the software like a barbarian while so many other people finesse it and make perfect creations.

Well, it's my first day of winter break. Ahhh, 3 weeks of not going to school.
I'm so bored!

My niece and nephew are candy cane fiends...

Sketch Pages 168-171

I'll post it here so I won't forget it: My goal is to finish 50 pages in my new sketchbook before this my 3 week break is through.
I've already reached page 7 in the sketchbook and I only started it a couple days ago so that's a good sign, I suppose.
At the very least I would like to reach my 200th page post on here before the year is up.
It's hard to believe it has been a year already....
Which is odd because this year has been very difficult on my family and friends.
Well, whatever. Next year we can have a fresh start.
I bought the weta workshop Narnia artbook :B Here are some environment studies
Aaaand timed gesture drawings. 30 seconds

60 seconds

60 seconds

Sketch Pages 166-167

A page of studies from the Lord of the Rings and Star Wars art books

I realized all of these studies won't be much good unless I USE them (durr) so here are some practice doodles.

Sketch Pages 163-165

Welp. Finals are finally over for this term. I can finally breathe a sigh of relief.
The term wasn't necessarily harder than any of the previous ones. In fact, this term pushed me to a point of discovery: I now know my career goals and what I want to do for the rest of my life.
Nope. I just got me some hardcore seasonal affective disorder.
Not to mention all of my classes were computer classes.
No drawing classes and no going outside, two negatives that add to Camille going CRAZY.
But whatever. It's over now. I can draw! I can go outside!
And I finished my big sketchbook yesterday!
Some dude with a weird back-o-da-head
Drawn during FINALS RAGE

A shape exercise. I need to do more of these.

Sketch Page 161-162

I should have posted these yesterday... OH WELL.
This sketchblog was a good idea. It's probably the only thing keeping me drawing right now.
It allows me to see how far I've come and how far I need to go, which is cool cuz I needs to see me some progress or I just stop, yo.

Sketch Pages 152-157

Ahh, that feels much better. I haven't had much time (or desire) to draw for the last couple of days.
However, today I had ample time to just sit and drawr. Good times.
Below are studies from posemaniacs, pixelovely, various books, and a skull demon dude.

Sorry for not posting much lately. Finals are next week!
Here are some sketches to help me relax. Frogs from ref using a nib pen and a little bit of oil pastel practice.
Yeah I know that frog in the upper right looks crazy. He can't help it. His mom says he's very handsome.

Sketch Pages 149 and 150

Fear my wangst!
Yeah so I'm sick of doing studies. I needed a break and it really shows in these sketches.
I started out with a couple studies, immediately became irritable, and drew my version of a sparkle pony (with extra sparkles!)
From the second page, the top drawing is just a sketch based on random design shapes and the bottom one is me wangsting some more.
This is usually the point where I would just stop drawing for awhile but no! I will force my way through this not-wanting-to-draw period!
