Finals Complete!

One eighth done with school! Here is the final post for this semester. These are the last few poses from my anatomy class. Something changed over these three weeks. Each one was done over the course of a full three hour class. Each drawing represents about two hours of actual drawing. However, something changed in my…

The rest of the week. of November 9th.

This was a good week. I feel like I’m getting more out of my posed figures. These are from my anatomy class. The first was a 40 minute pose from Friday last and the second is from three days ago. It was a two hour pose broken into 20 minute sections. There are some things I’m…

Alice in Wonderland II continued

I spent most of Thursday inking my Alice in Wonderland project. I actually started over entirely and it feels a lot cleaner and more refined. I went away from the dry brush and just stuck to dip pen work. I still have to shade the cups which will hopefully bring the focus down lower. That…

Alice in Wonderland II

In my Thursday class we are working on a poster for Alice In Wonderland II. We were asked to choose a character and do an Illustration depicting that character and telling us a little of their story. I wanted to choose a character that no one else would pick so I chose the Dormouse. After…

5 Weeks and Finally Up for a Breath!

So I’m going to do this chronologically from oldest to newest. Theoretically, it should get better as you scroll down. I’m going to brush over the earlier stuff and just choose the best one or two since there is so much. I will also keep the commentary brief. Anatomy class. We focused on the torso….

It’s been too long!

Sorry for the delay. It turns out that school is a time intensive activity! I’m going to change the way I do this blog which should allow me to post easier. As I do assignments at home or in class I’m just going to take a photo and then post them. That will be easier…

My first day of class

Today I had my first day of classes at FIT. I had a drawing class called Fashion Applications which is a basic drawing class. My other two classes are Basic Photography and History of Modern Art. It was a great day and I am tired but here is what I did in my drawing class….

FIT Orientation Week 00

Okay, so this week was my orientation week at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology). Going back to school was the whole point of starting this blog. I’m going to do my best to track my progress and have a good way of looking back at where my work was “once upon a time”. I’ve been…

Dinosaurs!

Two posts in one day! I visited the New York Museum of Natural History yesterday. It is probably my favorite place to go and draw. There is SO MUCH great stuff there. The crowds are a little unruly but it teaches you patience as you wait for people to move out of the way. It…

Heads and face practice

In my eternal quest to draw heads and faces better, I worked through a few pages. I tried to get some expressions out as drawing generic faces does become repetitive. I started warming up by practicing the male head in various positions on the first page. That lead to the top of the second page…
