So In trying to start a new local sketch club, I bought a sketchbook to test if it would be a good fit for beginners.
Here is the first drawing in it.
Roughly a hour and a half, in colored pencils on a toned sketchbook.
I am also trying to learn more about drawing the figure and have made some mental changes to my approach to figure drawing.
I have picked up Force: Dynamic Life Drawing, by Mike Mattesi. As I wanted to Really expand on the teaching i received in college for life drawing. This was a book that was recommended to me, by my Professor, and sadly I never picked it up. In wondering what my drawings would look like with Mattesi’s technique, I’ve decided to go back, and read and learn from that book
I’ve also trying to change up my workflows, Scheduling of projects, allowing myself to become engrossed in a piece or project. Even writing more in this blog instead of Just posting images for posterity’s sake. I don’t know if it will actually happen, but I can only hope I am going to be Enriched and grow as an Artist through these changes.
