WoW and Figure Drawing

WoW means Word of the Week, not World of Warcraft.....

So our first WoW was "Home."

To me, home is sometimes just sitting outside on a bench somewhere and just enjoying the nice, crisp air in the night sky.

Here are the pages I shelled out my ideas on.... 

 ....until I finally made a breakthrough.....

....and voila! I hope you like it!!

Here is some stuff from Figure Drawing with the Shrunkenheadman Club on 9/22. It was quite fun! Some of it was put on my portfolio for my figure drawing class.

Gestures = Story!

"Scribble! Shape! Structure! = Story! Design! Form!"

Was that right? I think that's right....

That was our "lesson" today in my figure drawing class. Sheldon Borenstein is really one of the weirdest teachers I've had so far.

So for class, we had to compile a portfolio of 8-10 of our best gestures. Here is what I turned in. 
I think I'm getting better at it. Yay for improvement?

Two old sketches

I've been sick since Saturday, but I am starting to get a little better. I just hope I'm fully recovered by Friday, so I'm all good for Saturday's football game.

Anyhoo, here are a few of my favorite sketches in my first sketchbook. They aren't much, but they were particularly better than the sketches I was dishing at the time. There aren't any dates on them, but they were both done sometime during this past summer.

They don't got no body....but the other guy does....haha.......humor.

 This is of my cousin's 2-month-old baby daughter, Sophia. She was sleeping at the time.

School has started.....some time ago

I'm going to try to update more now that school has started. For this Fall 2011, I'm taking Ani 28 and 55, so I will be drawing a lot, a lot a lot. But don't fret, that's a good thing.

So in Ani 28, we're working on cubes and how to draw them in perfect perspective, location studies, and gestures. The cubes were really confusing at first, but I think I was able to pull through.

Here are some pages of drawing cubes freehand from my sketchbook. They were done by me holding a plastic cube in one hand and draw with the other. as much as I can in an hour.

Then we went on to perspective. Perspective was somewhat hard for me and it took me a little while to get, but now it's okay at best. Gotta keep on practicing!

This one above should be rotated 90 degrees clockwise, but eh...

Next we did location studies. We just sat somewhere and drew what we saw, which is what I did.......sort of. 

It's been a lot of work but I love every minute of it. :) I'll post what I've done in figure drawing later. I gotta get back to cubes....
