|I ROCKED a pear, yo.|
|We did a lot of still life studies in class. This is pen & ink, not charcoal/pencil like the others.|
|It's harder to capture the white balance than I thought.|
|The best thing in class was seeing how many different ways people drew what they saw. |
No drawings were even remotely similar. Angles & shading can change the entire picture.
|Experimenting with different ways to shade.|
|Here I was trying to draw a body that contained a bit of a belly to see about different physical forms.|
|Another pen & ink.|
|I enjoyed trying to draw Edvard Munch's Madonna but it's on the flat side. |
I need to learn good shading techniques to add dimension.
|I struggled with the face here (and you can tell) but I was mostly concentrating on the body since|
it was one of the first times I was branching out to a whole figure.
|Here, experimenting with different postures.|
|A quick 5-minute sketch of my hand.|
|Eyes are extremely difficult for me -- getting the right proportions is a huge challenge.|
|Charcoal drawing of fruit on a cloth setting. Capturing wrinkles in cloth is also extremely difficult. |
Here I introduced color to add dimension.
|I didn't intend for this to resemble Julia Roberts -- if I TRIED, I'm pretty sure it would have failed!|
But kind of neat that it turned out that way.
|Mug shot! Not really, but that's what this looks like.|
|This reminds me, in retrospect, of Mad Magazine's Spy vs. Spy series, for the outfit and rushing inference.|
