But, part of what I am doing involves have a critique of my (non-existant) portfolio. I don't think cobbling together little sketches will make for a great portfolio. So I am trying to beef it up (past two pages!) and have something that can be meaningfully critiqued.
To that end, I am working on one or two sketches for a few stories. I'm starting with Peter and the Wolf. I always loved that story and music, the first time I heard it was at the Children's Symphony at the Brooklyn Academy of Music conducted by none other than Leonard Bernstein. And he explained to so beautifully to the kids, I just adored it and him. So I decided to start there.
I'll add some Water Lily Girl pics, and "Dad and his Pizza" and some other stuff. I don't know what to expect, so I'll just bring what I can.
Pencil sketches below. I plan to show the sketches and some finished work from each series. (oohh, I just noticed how small the head is in the first shot, gotta go work on that)
(I really think I need a new scanner )
If anyone has any experience with this type of conference or critique - let me know!
Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year to all!!!
