Well after a semester of figure class where I was sure I would learn a bit I apparently did. I got some really good direction on this piece though from Custode my figure instructor. I am going to miss being in that class. Anyhow more to learn in the future and more ways to improve my work as well.

Drawing done from a photograph while i was working on my scratch board project. I ended up doing another image but enjoyed laying down such large areas of dark and palying with value.

Just working the pencil

sketchesofcourse, originally uploaded by Morty79.

Ah sadly only one sketch page (out of many I have yet to scan).more importantly I have been approved for my green card as of Monday after my interview, went in for my final fingerprinting yesterday and should receive my card within a another week or so. So school looks very very likely this semester plus I can possibly go see my family this Christmas or maybe early next year. Ahh finally after 15 years.

Living in Sarasota now(well I have been for about a month )

Things do change thankfully and I am here in Sarasota with a nice job(my first job since getting my work permit). Living in my first apartment and got paid last week :D. It feels relly nice though I still have some things to still solidify with USCIS I am feeling like I have a chance now to just try my hand at things. Really trying as usual to get my work in gear to prepare for this upcoming fall(this should be the August FINALLY). Of course here are a few pages of my sketch book.

Some bits and ends

A lava lamp I drew with my left hand with out realizing it, was very odd when I noticed.
Sketches as usual .
A page of sketches I recently completed, I find the orbit of the eye quite interesting to mess around with.
This is the sketch for another one I am working on, the other is roughly the same just some differences in the face and hands.
This is a fairly finished sketch to a piece I am doing in color on illustration board, looks like me somewhat.

Back after a hiatus

Well I actually didn't go anywhere for long anyway.It as been interesting over the last month I received my receipt notices for my immigration forms which allows me to really keep track of their progress. On the 31st I actually had my fingerprinting done so background check then work permit. No on to the fun stuff dare I say "magical" I actually was out of town for a four day weekend took the grayhound and spent four glorious days in Sarasota stayed on campus at Ringling which gave me much better idea of what to expect in some ways plus gave me an extra fire in me belly to make sure I am there this Fall. Well I had fun and was comfortable which is rare and I made some new friends (it will be my duty to make them question there mental states for the rest of their lives)...the fools. On to the drawings only going to post a few of what I have done over the month.
