Painted with acrylics in class today! Sorry, I thought it was dry but apparently it wasn't when I stuck it in my sketchbook, so there's bits of white paper attached to some of the trees. Alas.
Also I'm pretty sure if my teacher wasn't as nice a person as she is (it's a beginner's class, so) she would have been breathing down my neck going WIPE YOUR BRUSH and MORE WATER. I kept putting the paint on too thickly and forgetting to wipe my brush.
It was really fun trying not to use black and white, though. Managed not to use black, but I ended up having to use white for the sky.
... adding to what Black Spot says... try to get the head shapes right first... work big to small. Even if eyes are misplaced on a well drawn head, it will look more correct than well placed eyes on a skewed shaped head.
Making your shapes (3D volumes) read is one of the most difficult things to do (I'm still learning it), but once you're there, everything else become immensely easier (light/value/color/detail/etc).
Black Spot & p sage: Thanks for the advice! I'll do some studies and work on my volume and so on.
Lolwhoops barely did anything the last month.
Here's stuff from class, as well as the WIP which is taking forever because I have the attention span of a gnat.
Barely done anything in weeks. I hate that; I feel like I'm busy, but I'm actually not, I just get exhausted when I've done everything I need to do so I slack off on everything else, because by the time I have free time to draw and stuff, I'm too tired to feel any motivation.
