Hi, I'm AC
I feel like I'm plateauing in my art so I made this account hoping for inspiration and motivation mostly. Some personal items which I need to remind myself to practice in particular are as follows (list will be updated as needed): <b>environments<b>, color, mood, space relationships (in life drawings especially)
Crit is always appreciated!
I will scan some paper stuff in a moment, until then
2. Draw a figure using a reference - link to reference
I decided to try something different than usual: charcoal
Also, I'm pretty sure no one reads this, but on the off chance that somebody is, any tips on the nuances of properly sealing with hairspray would be magnificent because I think I screwed up when I tried to seal this. It worked but the moisture made the paper do that wavy thing that paper tends to do when it gets wet then dries :/

7. Pick the weirdest object in your house/room. Draw it. Shadows and Highlights.
The weirdest thing I could see from my chair is this half finished puppet-head I was sewing a while ago. I really need to finish this guy...
15. Halfway there! Draw three Ďactioní scenes with different compositions in each. Quick sketches are fine, just make them interesting and understandable! Bonus points if itís the same scene, but different composition.
these plus a bunch more that sort of happened when I was trying to figure out where to go with this
My compositions are so weak. I'm gonna go watch an action movie or something and work on this..
20. Pick an object in your house/room. Now design a character from it, using the shapes, forms, textures, purpose and colors as inspiration. Also link/post the object you used. Negative points for using a humanoid action figure.
21. Draw a character/object/scene, and shade them using ONLY solid blacks and whites. Bonus points for good use of lights/shadows
One from life, one not
22. Draw a different object/scene/character. Shade using hatching, crosshatcing, and/or pointillism. Bonus points for lights/shadows and textures.
This is on scratch-board and I'm probably gonna put in more time later.
23. Colors! Pick a color palette, and paint a scene/character/object using only those colors (some blending allowed). Bonus points for good use of lights/shadows.
I'm supposed to be planning for a sculpture for AP art that uses symbolism to describe a transition in our lives and I wasn't really sure where I was going with this until I realized I might be able to fill my own head with plants. Gonna have to talk to my teacher about that one though...ha
