Week 2 Extra Life

-Extra Life-
Included some more muscles then last time, basing them off the sheets handed out @ body worlds.

When I went to extra life, I was having the worst day of this year basically >___< style="text-align: center;">

and when i got so frustrated, i tried to draw someone like kim possible style! haha

Week 2 Cafe

i've had this tiny sketchbook for awhile, and decided to start using it. its fun, i'm less pressured to fill the page and such, and i seem to compose more or feel like making it an entire artwork, not just crappy little sketches here and there. i find when i'm thinking it's homework, i become less original and creative, so my sketchbooks are kinda meh, but with my sketches i doodle in class, theyre so pretty looking! im trying to get that with my cafe drawings, feel more free and make it look like a full artwork. this sketchbook has made that happen, so far. i havnt done much to be honest. im kinda behind...>O<.

last year an illustrator came into seneca and lectured about his art, and showed how he colours his tiny sketchbook with water colour pencil crayons with a brush that holds water inside it. i thought it was awesome, so i got some but i found it annoying to carry around so i gave up. at sketchjam i saw juan kind of did the same thing with that brush but holding a tiny watercolour set, and now i'm trying that because it's brilliant.

i only tried the colouring once. it was rele fun.


Week 1 Cafe Sketchjam

Cafe sketches from sketchjam. alot of them done walking, i was not comfortable. it was a blast, but the drawings are lacking. you can tell which ones where the ones i enjoyed. haha. especially the last one, that was my contest submission for a "festive zombie". in graves''s disturbing. haha. im glad i impressed him. haha. XD

Week 2 Cafe Body Worlds

so here are my "in class" body world sketches. it was creepy and cool, and even though i was inspired, i found i was more intimidated. all the lines made me dizzy, and while i was drawing i had a hard time thinking straight. therefore, gesture, proportion, and vital other things to make a study sketch "solid" are kind of missing...i'm not that proud of most of them.

they look stiff, amateur-ish, and just weird. when the body was all opened up, i was thinking more about omg-that-guys-ribs-are-opened-up-that's-so-cool-i-can't-believe-it's-a-dead-body-that's-so-awesome-maybe-i-should-donate...instead of attempting to draw a rib cage and pelvis or even just boxed so my drawing would be okay. i just couldn't see them when there's someone's spine bending out of their body straight at me so i can see their brain. lol.

i most likely seem extremely unprofessional right now, but that's okay. come on, dead posed bodies! haha...either way, i learned alot, and i had a good time, but it was hard to push through. i was aware of what mindset i was in, and kept working to get over my "awe" and just draw accurate drawings i can study from later. i don't know how that's going to go.

i'm happy i saw all this early though, and tried to get over it, and that i see my mistakes, and am not just thinking "they're good enough...." when people tell me they are. i'm trying to get better, not be a pessimistic, even though it seems that way. kk, i'll stop talking. i did try to work hard on these though.
