Senior Concentration: 6/12

I really am not a fan of this one.  I feel like the idea was a hit, where the execution was a miss..

Senior Concentration: 5/12

So, I was doing good with posting every day... for about 4 days... then failed!  
I don't know if it's lack of motivation, fear of saying the wrong thing, or whatever, but I have to get back to keeping up with this lifeless blog!
This is the first piece I actually had kind of liked (big accomplishment mentally) but then again... I felt I could do a lot better.  Piece 5.

Senior Concentration: 4/12

So at this point I was a third way through my senior concentration.  I was continuing to develop my theme/ideas, and was progressing rather well.  Looking back on this piece, I'm extremely unhappy.  I see so many anatomically wrong features, but I'm just really not feeling like they're worth fixing.  So this is piece four.

Senior Concentration: 3/12

This is the third piece of my concentration.  At this point I had developed a method for my paintings.  I would start with the pattern by using acrylic paints.  After the acrylic pattern dried, I would move on to doing the portrait in oil paints.  My portraiture was getting a weeee bit better, but yeah, I was just in the beginnings of my journey.

Yes.. as I promised.. this is part two of my senior concentration.. 
Yes, it makes me want to cry.
Yes, it's complete crap.
But hey, we all start somewhere right?
