CGMA winter Quarter: Week 4

I'm struggling with my CGMA work. Come to think of it, I'm struggling with everything right now. No idea why.

Here are my latest projects from week 4. Cartoon girl is for the Digital Painting Class; 3 point perspective sketches are for the Environment Sketching class.

More Live Studies

Hi everyone!

Sorry it took me a while to post an update. I've been slammed with all my classes and work. Here are a few new pieces I did in my Live Study class. The image with the 2 models was giving me so much grief, I almost gave up. I decided to continue out of stubbornness and ended up with a somewhat presentable piece.

The model sitting with her back toward us was done in about 40 minutes, the model on her back was completed in around 30. The piece with two models took about 2 hours 20 minutes of intense struggle, at which point I erased the sitting model and drew an improved version of her in the last 20 minutes of the 3 hour session.

The lesson I learned from all these is that I need to improve my understanding of hands (among other things), so I'm doing a bunch of hand copies from Bridgman. I hope we'll see an improvement in the future.

I'll try to post new work from my CGMA classes, when I make something post-worthy.

1000 Gestures

Hi everyone!

Time for an update. Here are some more live studies. The sketchy images were completed in around 30 minutes (could be 40). The male nude was done in 3 hours. Every time I make one of these, they look worse and worse. I console myself by reminding me that I've put in the hours, so I hope I'll eventually improve..

And on a slightly related note, here are my final 100 gestures: the 1000 gesture drawings challenge is now officially complete!

I will now switch to drawing the rest of my 1000 face gestures and then go down the list of other things I want to draw a thousand times :)
