Those enviroment references you shot in a couple of post back are pretty amazing, your digi-enviros are coming along nicely too. Colour in the foliage looks great, too bad i live in a pretty built up urban area...
So, as you've probably guessed, TAD started a couple of weeks ago, so I haven't been updating this thread. Here's a taste of some of the stuff I'm doing.
These are done in Conte Carre pastel (should be using Nupastel but they aren't easy to get outside the U.S. Conte Carre, I'm told, is very similar- a hard pastel that's still soft enough to blend, be sensitive, and not scratch the paper) from photoreference provided by TAD. They follow a procedure designed by Mark English to help students see the whole silhouette of a figure. 15 minutes each. Attachment 1025350
This one uses the same procedure, but was not for a class, and was copied from a photo of my own. The original photo was taken with the flash on; I designed the lighting for the drawing. Attachment 1025359
Straight lines from Marshall Vandruff's Perspective class. This was my tenth page. Attachment 1025360
Colour and Composition:
An excersise in creating composition with a specific emotion with abstract shapes and two values.

Wow, was my last post really that long ago? TAD has been keeping me hella busy, but here's an update on where I am with those figures.
In media class, we just finished the ink section, taught by George Pratt, and Android Jones is coming in for the next few weeks to teach us digital painting. We're wrapping up vignettes in Colour and Composition. There's so much to tackle in a vignette; it's like bootcamp. I'm learning so much that I'm a noticeably better artist than I was two weeks ago.
