Sketching

"Art Class - Part 2"

Today was my second lesson and everyone brought in something they had done previously. Everyone's style was different and the teacher praised everyone's drawings. Some were fantastic drawings.

Today in class we just dealt with speed drawing (refreshed on that), clothing of our character, their shape, form etc. I didn't take as many notes as last time but I know I need to work on lightening my lines that I use and work out what clothes I want to use on my character. I think she will turn out pretty good at the end of it all.

I asked the teacher (this is his first teaching gig and it was voluntary) about future art classes and he has agreed to give, those who want it, his phone number to arrange private classes in the future or just someone we can ask for hints and tips. If I could find some of his work to display I would but I am not sure it is up on the net.

The main picture I showed today (we had to bring our own art, was of a male drow (dark elf).

"Sketching"

Last night I finally got to starting on my homework. It is amazing how busy you get when you have kids and then it doesn't stop till you get to bed. Last night I said no to playing cards with the family, I said no to watching tv and started on my pre-lim sketches of the character I want to create for art class. I actually drew two figures but the second one really was no good. They are full of lines but they are only the roughs, outlines, etc.

I really enjoy these art classes but may have to forfeit next monday's class due to rellies coming to stay (needing to be picked up from the gold coast - 2 hr drive there). I am hopefully going to be able to organise it so that I can arrive late and stay late.
Our first lesson consisted mainly with the basics, looking at the musclces in the body, how to get proper height, positioning, shapes etc.
My next class is tomorrow
