continuing to get my Watts on - updated a lil bit [02.07.06]
Hey everyone, I'm back and recuperated after break and the very inspiring but mentally exhausting SF workshop (I miss it already). but I'm back and ready to get on with classes.
This is Quarter #2 for me at Watts Atelier. I started a new thread because the old one was getting really cluttered... this time around I'm not going to include *every* single drawing I do in class. If anyone feels like seeing the quarter 1 stuff it's here: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=33900
Anyway, I'm enjoying it as always and I hope this term will be as rewarding as my first.
Without further ado, here's what I've been up to these first two weeks. Critiques are very welcome. There's so much to learn. Thanks for looking!
First night back, 5 min head warmups.
Long portrait drawing from the same night. My hand was feeling pretty rusty - a sign I should have drawn more over the break.
Figure drawing. I was pleased with portions of this drawing (mostly just happy that I managed to push things a little darker than I usually do-one of my goals for this term)
This model doesn't really have a frankenstein forehead. That's what I get for rushing into things rather than taking my time and measuring properly. Lesson learned.
This is just a page of quicksketches that I thought came out ok.
2nd week, 5-minute head warmups
Portrait drawing from that same night. Any time I thought this was going well, all I had to do was stand up and watch Ron, Vanessa, and Patrick drawing to put me right back in my place ;)
Figure drawing from this morning. I made a conscious effort to slow down and take my time measuring and re-checking, rather than get ahead of myself. I think it paid off.
