I started a Friday night drawing class last night. In the past it's been life drawing or portrait drawing and actually, I thought this would be the same - didn't read the class description. But it is really a basic drawing class. At first I was not sure, but I like the instructor, he knows me and in the end - of course - I learned. We did a still life and some random drawings, he knows my style and helps with little things. So no matter what, I'll learn.
First he had us use ballpoint pen (which I abandoned after the block shown below) and do our own mental still life - all about volume and light source and shadows. I think I was the only one who ended up with a block of swiss cheese, and snake and a boat full of mice on a water filled table top. Tom was great, and helped me with the top of the snake - i'm not great on volume.
And then he set up a still life for use to work on. And I really did work on that cup laying on it's side - I really struggled with that perspective.
Next week starts my comic class - which I am very excited about
I've got to get the scanning and computer thing down...and the word placement - Yikes.
But - I've got 39 pages done so far. Thirty Nine!!! I can't believe it. Once I get them all scanned in I'll show you....
Wish me luck!!
