    Idea's

    Dunno who's going to get a chance to read this before tommorrow, but here are a few idea's for a few theme's

    1) A creature portrait in a classical style... like if vermeer were commissioned to paint 'alien', or Rembrant to paint ET...

    2) An Art gallery of the future. In this future, Many alien races mingle and interact. This gallery is all about appreciating the diverse kinds of art found amongst different species and planets. (and the kind of spaces one would use to exhibit them)

    3) The transport museum... in 3000 years.

    Well. Just some idea's. Will hopefully see a few of ya tommorrow... if ya come late and we have actually found eachother and gone somewhere, then my number is a couple a posts up.
    Tomollo then

    hello playmates,

    was there a decent turnout on Saturday? I really wanted to be there: sketchling's ideas sounded fun. Unfortunately, I couldn't get a babysitter to look after my kids for the day.

    We have to do this again some day soon.

    Keep me posted.

    Hehe don't worry too much, it wasn't a complete loss that you weren't all with us. It turned out to be the most rabid organisers amongst us hashing out exactly what we wanted to do, at length in the Princess Louise tavern

    The first thing we learnt is that the galleries maybe aren't the best idea. On the weekend, many of them are booked solid, and you tend to wait about two hours to see any shows. So we've decided that the focus of the next one will most likely be the Natural History Museum. For those with an inclination to draw dinosaurs, it's your dream holiday, and there's plenty of other interesting forms and whatnot there too. Makes me think of what Android said in Amsterdam - every book about "artists' anatomy" you read is by an artist, and in some way tainted by their opinion: It's better to read a book which is actually about anatomy and take away only the facts.

    Sketchling (Kim)'s ideas got us going alot, and we decided that we're setting an assignment. Kim's ideas are really solid, and exactly what we need for developing skills and imagination, so before the next meet, which henceforth will be the FIRST WEEKEND OF EVERY MONTH, everyone planning to attend will have to produce a Rennaissance Alien. Aliens are maybe a little easy - there's loads of reference we all know and love. But the Rennaissance is a way to draw from artists maybe we don't look at enough - not just their anatomy, but the style of their colours and brushstrokes, yadda yadda. Plus it's an awesome way to turn usual thinking on its head. So get cracking. Maybe we can say final posting should be the Wednesday before the next meet.

    Sketchling's got the pics of our beer-and-sarnie conference, so I hope he posts them soon. And I'm looking forward to seeing what you all come up with.

    hey, you forgot next weeks lottery numbers. ah well, no worries ^-^


    sounds like you had fun. i really wish i came, to meet all you guys, but next month i will go for sure. first weekend of every month, sounds great. should become a healthy regular.
    so, what we have to do is draw an alien head in the style of an old master? or am i missing something.

    hmmm, so did you meet again today? if not, why not? when i go, its gonna cost alot to come from cardiff (coach is loads, train is even more i think) so it would be a bit of a dent in my pocket if i only came for one day.


    well sketchling, post those damn photos man. ^-^
    and everyone, if you can, post some scans of your sketchbook pages you did.



    peace

    The Photo's

    Hi all!

    I do have the photo's ready for your consumption... most had no heads... but here are some of the better ones:

    Mollyx, Dirty_c and some curls of Sketchling... With research material for the Renaissance alien idea... :chug:
    United Kingdom

    Dirty_c:
    United Kingdom

    Mollyx or 'T'
    United Kingdom

    The 3 of us outside the Princess louise...
    United Kingdom


    (disclaimer here: that alien-in-classical-style idea I got mainly from the
    'design studio press book, 'Concept Design' LINK
    Its a really good book for promoting different
    ways of thinking about concept art and design.)
    Other idea's are mine

    UK weekly...

    You know I've been thinking....

    Why dont we do a kind of ' uk (or London) weekly sketch group' thing.... we pick a subject...agree on it and do some artwork based on the theme. I'd love to do a daily but I wouldn't get time to....but a weekly one would be cool..

    It might be a really good way for us all to work on similar themes plus it would be a great talking point for any meets we go to.


    Thoughts?

    daily sketchbook

    You need to do more anatomy...and check your values....wait...did I just say that?

    weekly sketch thing

    Lowpoly - Yeah, funnily enough we discussed that at the meeting. Im very keen for that and would be willing to help come up with idea's for the topics. I also just dont have the time for the Daily thing all the time.

    Weekly things would get us motivated and give us something to show on the monthly meetings over and above the project we set for that.

    I vote YAY

    WOO! Sounds like a winner and should be the incentive I need to get off my fat ass and actually do some art!

    I'm well up for it. So who wants to pick the next subject?

    Wednesday it is then. So we set a task on a wednesday... and display the previous one at the same time? I assume so. Can do WIP along the way anyways.

    Another point : Are we going to mix between character/creature/environments? some people tend towards one or the other, but its a good idea to try different things.. What ya all think?

    We could nominate a few people to take it in turns to set the next weeks project... that way character lovers can set characters... etc. that way we can tend towards what we like and still have challenges every week...
    (especially if you try to stick with one genre and have to turn something like 'Environment : Ancient Spaceport ' into a character...It could lead to interesting results.)

    Hi all

    Mollyx and I were chatting and descided that Weekly Brief's should take the form of 2-3 words, to leave things open ended. DSG style... EG 'Dwarven Astronaught', 'Derelect Planet-Factory' , 'Rusty Steel Garden'... um 'Elven Lumberjack'

    So for this week.. as im posting this, lets make the topic one of the above!

    - dude, Sketchling in one of his previous posts, suggested:

    "We could nominate a few people to take it in turns to set the next weeks project... that way character lovers can set characters... etc. that way we can tend towards what we like and still have challenges every week...
    (especially if you try to stick with one genre and have to turn something like 'Environment : Ancient Spaceport ' into a character...It could lead to interesting results.)"
