I'm back. I know it's been forever, but as I promised here's an update.
FINALLY AP art tests (the portfolio) is over and I can now focus on some studies. Had to make sure I got everything done for my concentration and all.
OKay, I didn't realize how horrible I scanned these in, so I will try and get better pics, sometimes my scanner can kinda mess with me too.
Here's some things that I have so far, We'll start with sketchbook stuff:
Most of these went in my Breadth portfolio section.
For the one below, I was bored sitting in my brothers car waiting on the food to arrive and so I sketched my shoe.
Didn't get too many details in because we had to leave and I can't draw while driving, I have major motion sickness problems.
And when I got tired of drawing people I focused on Reptiles and Amphibians which are the joy of my life. I have 3 lizards, one of them is on this page. It's the unfinished one. xD I didn't finish Merlin (my Water Dragon) you can tell which one it is because it has barely any details whatsoever. xD
And I did this one while sitting in my boyfriends truck while he was putting gas in. I pulled down the sun visor thing that has a mirror attached to it and drew my eye really quick. xD
Crap! Due to the fact that a malfunction in my cameras usb cable occured I can't take pics of the other stuff. I can scan in some things tomorrow.
Here is the rest!
This is the one that I am most proud of! It's a mixed media with ink and water color.
Detail of face:
This piece was included in my AP art quality portfolio.
As for the next few:
This is the Batik I made in art class. After it was dye'd and waxed I put acrylic paint and prisma color marker on it for added affect. This was the first Batik I ever made and its kinda crazy...
Detail of cloud:
And this is just a charcoal drawing I did.
I can scan in more later. As for the ones that I'd rather take a picture for I can wait on that till I get this problem fixed. And for some of my pieces they are sent away for ap portfolio testing. I wanted to scan or take a picture of Jestermoon, but its not with me now.
This'll have to do for now. Will update again much sooner.
PLEASE feel free to comment & critique, its so lonely in here.
This is a graphic background that I worked on during Computer App 2 class when I had nothing to do using Photoshop Elements. I really like it and I made another, but I didn't have time to send it to my email to save it on my computer.
I will show tomorrow hopefully.
You have a very good start here. I make this suggestion to anyone learning the human form. Get a sketch book and use it only for figure study. Go to a park, downtown, bus stop...anywhere with a lot of people and make quick gesture drawings. This enables you to see how people move and sit, what their bodies are doing as they perform these movements. You'll be surprised at how quickly the book fills up and before you know it, you will have captured hundreds of figures with very few lines keep it up!
Thank you and I'm glad to see you again. I have graduated high school on June 7th and I am hoping to go into the graphic design program at my community college for 2 years and transfer for NC School of the Arts.
@ RoboBobo: Thank you for the wonderful suggestion.
I have often thought of going out and drawing people from life.
I live in a small town so we don't have very good parks or downtown train stops. xD
Although I can make-do in a restaurant or in the food cort section of the mall that I love going too. I kinda get nervous to think about what would happen if someone caught me drawing them. I don't do well socially sometimes and I'd be afraid they'd want me to stop drawing them. >.<
But I won't try and let that stop me because I am really wanting to draw from life and I hope to start soon. It would be a great help and wonderful learning experience. =D
Hey good stuff seeing progress from the initial post. Just watch the proportions a bit. on that loomis study you should check that the waist is at least similar the front seems a little too skinny and the back just a tad wide. don't be afraid to draw in reference lines then you can seewhat lines up with what. keep up the good work.
