class has started again and its nice to get out of the office and out to where the kids want piggyback rides all day, where i can be a . the kids are so ; its awesome. and i get to sneak time to draw, like with the two birthday pics. gonna make 2 more on monday, so im looking forward to that. the art store didnt have the sketchbook i wanted, but the owner of the store actually lives in my town so when they get some in stock he said he'd bring it to me. schway! ended up getting some copic brushpens for my arsenal, and i tried out some copic markers in the store. theyre so smooth...i can see why people really like them. wanted to try out some prismacolor pencils, but i was afraid that id buy them so maybe next time. shopped online for bridgman last night, but for some reason theyre not accepting cash anymore so i skipped out on it. lo and behold, i found a couple bridgman books at the bookstore today so i bought the ones i wanted except for the female figure one, which wasnt in stock (as far as i know, didnt ask...maybe next time as well). hundred hands, human machine, constructive anatomy, and drapery and folds. from today, im setting specific goals for line practice; for the next howeverlong (i dunno yet), ill be trying to work on making lines a specified length. today; not so great, just so-so. some stuff from the hundred hands book, studies for my commission for the local library. crits, comments, cantelopes please; yum!
