Blackwing and TomBow
Most people have a love affair with the Palomino Blackwing pencil. Personally, I think they are just OK. First thing to keep in mind is, I like to draw. Almost all of my pencil use is drawing something or other. Over the past year I've been trying out diffe...

Hogarth
No, not Hodor... Hogarth. Anyone who spends time drawing will eventually find  Dynamic Figure Drawing  by Burne Hogarth. One of the interesting things about the figure drawings in the book is they were all done without a model. He accomplishes this by layin...

Olde Tyme Drawing Course
I came across  an old fashioned drawing course. I think it may have been this one: Charles Bargue Drawing Course  It's premise is that students should draw casts of great greek statues in order to learn classic style and rendering human anatomy. They start ...

Introduction and Some History
When I was a kid I told my parents that I wanted to be an artist. They were a bit frightened since they were sure I'd never be able to make a living as an artist. Even if I was very good, I'd never be able to support a family. Eventually they convinced me t...

Working through the #alclass final. It would have been really nice to be able to download the videos in a format that iTunes understands. That way I could have reviewed them on the train into work while doing the final problems. Yes, I'm working on the final while riding the commuter rail.

In any case, 3/4 done and I think I'll do OK. I hope. :)

Andrew Loomis
For those who don't know Andrew Loomis was an illustrator and art instructor. But he was most well know for a series of books on drawing. His book "Figure Drawing for all it's Worth" has been the reference on human figure proportions in illustration for man...

Drawing the same thing over and over and over...
When I look on my instagram feed I notice that some people seem to draw the same thing over and over. It's like they get comfortable drawing something and just keep doing it. I fell into that too. It started with a bird... And then... I'd start with a piece...

Digital Painting
Once inktober finished I wasn't sure what to do next. I happened to come across a link to Noah Bradley's Art Camp.  http://artcamp.com/  And more importantly the first lesson video. It inspired me to try digital painting. I didn't have a copy of Photoshop o...

Really good. A LOT of probability and Bayes Theorem. The only thing I would have preferred is if I could have downloaded the videos and watched them offline. (On the train to and from work.) But then I wouldn't have been able to do the integrated quizes.

I wish I had time to do all the programming exercises for the Machine Learning class. But between trying to do too much and the snow storm in Oct I had to revert to the basic track from the advanced track of the ML class. I really liked the ML class too. Yes, I took 2 classes...

Finished my #aiclass midterm. Screwed up 2 or 3 questions. Not sure about a couple. Got the rest correct. I think, I hope.
