Yeah, so I took a drawing class last summer… I wanted to post the pictures up here, but then got in a hurry to get ready to go to Poland…. so here they are, a year later. I haven’t decided whether or not to take a class this summer.. sorta need to decide, lol. I do need the motivation, because left on my own, I hardly ever draw complete things (just little squiggles and sketches).
12 hours of charcoal… massive drawing…someone in my class wanted me to give it to them…lol, obviously i said no
Painted on rubber cement, washed with india ink, removed rubber cement…
Unfinished mixed media of Ophelia based on a classical painting. Google it…lol. Hair is embroidery floss, pastels for skin and face, she doesn’t have horns – there is a vine and flowers entangled in her hair. I was going to do those with silk fabric.
A few days ago I found one of my old notebooks tucked away in my room. Its a grid-design, top-spiral bound note book that I used back when I was in driver’s ed to kill time (nope, not a single driver’s ed note in it – lol, so maybe THATs why I had that accident about 3 years ago). I was “in my prime” as an artist back then. Sad, I know, considering the quality of drawings. These days I’m not even this good, since I don’t practice often 😦 I really should get back to it.
Just for fun I thought I’d upload the scans here so you can see them. The highlight of the bunch is the 3 pages of comic-intro that I was making. I’ve always wanted to make a comic / manga but I often get stuck trying to figure out a good plot. After looking at these pages, I feel kinda like I want to restart PROJECT PEACH (which btw, was inspired by my love of peach-buns from the Chinese buffet! lol).
So… here are the pictures… lol. Tell me what you think of my mad16-yr-old drawing skills (other than the obviously lack of understanding in regards to human anatomy). At the time I was trying to move away from manga style drawings… with a mediocre amount of success. Unfortunately, this notebook is from the time right around when I started to develop serious symptoms of narcolepsy… I pretty much slept through the last 2 years of high school and stopped doing everything.
Hurrah for uni-boobs!
Pirate-elf? Or Elven pirate?
Peach – It begins
Thats supposed to be fire and smoke coming out of the bottom of the mother tree
Peach 3 – um… lets not talk about that last image (pencil part)
