How is he enjoying school thus far??

says he is absolutely loving it. Busy now....with his wife and daughter, his work on commissions aside, and school.

His goal is to push himself as hard and as is possible...

Jason is so good. I hope he has instructors who respond to that by pushing him further. There are too many teachers out there who recognize the best in the class and pretty much just feed them A's. It's obvious that Jason pushes himself, but some extra pushing and direction and knowledge along with that is invaluable. Then again, I was a slacker, so maybe it's just something I wish I'd had!

Thanks Ted..

Jason is cutting into his commission potential, and other opportunities to do this, believing it will make him a better artist in the long run. I think if anything, Jason may prove a pain in the b_tt wanting to learn more.

If there is a problem, it might be profs wanting to address something that doesn't go over most heads...but Jason will want his neck up to it!

He wants good grades...but he wants to earn them. It wasn't grades though that brought Jason to this school...but a drive to out do himself and improve.
I'm sure he'd agree with all you said, Ted!

take care

Hey everyone, I just saw this post. Things are going well at school. I am being challenged which is nice. Different techniques that I've never done or used. The anatomy is learning all the parts of the body, bones and muscle's, and how to draw them in the correct porportions. I'm excited to say I recieved the highest "A" in the class on my skulls...so that was a little weight off my chest. Due in a couple weeks are the front and back of the torso...I'll try to post those as well. For my other class I did a charcoal collage of different building pieces that I found around the city. We all had the same assignment...I'll try to post that as well. The point of this assignment was composition...I'm very pleased with the way it turned out...my instructor is very happy with it as well. Tomorrow we will dicuss what we did, he'll walk around and critique them.

I am being pushed, and loving it...and when I'm not being pushed I go ahead and push myself.

Talk to you all later!

Hi Jason! You look like you are settling in well in class - these drawings are superb! But, I think I wouldn't expect any less from you.

Glad you are being pushed and challenged - you'll be the better for it. :clap:

Yipe, definitely some skillful skulls! That third view, from the rear, if you changed a bit of shading on the jaw to bring it forward, make the teeth a bit more pointy, would make an excellent alien. :wink2:

Those are some amazing looking skulls! Wouldn't have expected anything less. I look forward to seeing your buildings!
