Well here it is, my final drawing for the 8 week course I’ve been taking. I think I did a decent job with this class, especially considering I haven’t drawn much of anything in nearly 30 years. Still not sure if I’ll continue with it, but if I do, I will likely try to illustrate some of my own books.
It’s snowing here again in Wisconsin, and although it’s pretty, I still wish spring would stop teasing us. On the upside, it certainly does make for a great day of creativity in some form or another, which I’ll most likely take full advantage of. Anyway, hope everyone is having a great weekend! ~M xo
Here’s my final project for this week. I took photos along the way to show the entire process. The overall drawing took me approximately 15 hours to complete and I used a 4B graphite pencil for the entire drawing. I was surprised a handkerchief could take this long to sketch. Lol… 😉
Well, here’s my final sketch for my mid-term project. My teacher didn’t really want me adding anything else, but I snuck in an extra book because I thought it looked too plain without it. He also wanted me to shade the table, so I did that as well. This was a lot more difficult from my first sketch since this one was done in charcoal and my original sketch was done in graphite. Hopefully I get a good grade. My teacher seems like a tough grader and so far I’m at an 89%. So I’ve got to bring that up a bit if I want to get an “A” in the class. Hope everyone is having a good weekend! 😉
*Sorry, I know the Super Bowl has passed, but there’s gotta be at least some sort of game on the tube to keep you happily occupied this weekend; if in fact, you’re having this done. I don’t see an expiration date on this, so sounds like it’s still a valid coupon; and with free pizza and a bag of frozen peas, you can’t possibly go wrong! Have a lovely weekend boys! Lol… 😉
