i have bin away some time. you must do what you think is right. like the painting with the naked mole rat and the lady. i think te sene will be much more dramatic with stronger contrasts. de background more darker and te licht more brighter. Just sugesting
make sure in some of your paintings you figure out the proportions first before you paint it in. the girly guy has some major anatomy problems but it's rendered very well which looks kind of strange. i think you could also work on adding more details to your eyes. they don't hold up to how good the skin is.
whee, thank you guys and girls (im in a hurry, sorry! cant miss classes)
Yay, I got internet at school!
These are sketches I did at Angel Academy of Art, Florence. It's not much, I know! But it's only my 2nd day ever here, (my 3rd, as of today), and we've been working mainly on the Bargue drawings only. Mine is 50% finished, I wonder if that makes me fast or slow?? Anyway, I'll upload it soon.
Angel Academy of Art is cool. I couldn't think of a better art education (for me). It focuses on technique and craft only, which I'm convinced are the only things in art that can be taught. And Michael John Angel, the founder, is really cool. In general, people here are really nice! And they're from many different countries - Sweden, Switzerland, Argentinia, Finland, France, New Zealand...
And Florence is really beautiful but also scary. With its number of cars and motorcycles, the city center looks like Mumbai at rush hour, but all day (and probably night too). Düsseldorf looks so cozy in comparison...
Life drawing is going to happen next week, yeah, yeah! These are gesture drawings from reproductions. We were instructed to "draw only the pose, not the figure" (that's essentially gesture drawing). I had to simplify shapes a lot.
I'll upload the first Bargue drawing later
