hello everyone. since some of you guys are already done with the first week's easy-mcheesy homework i'll go ahead the second's week homework since it is on a similar vein.
1. do a finished work in the style, format, medium, subject, ref or no ref, etc. representative of what you want to do as an artist. this will be your 'personal work', outside of academic interests. no time limit, no restrictions. just do your best.
remember to label the post containing your homework with 'week2 homework' in bold.
p.s. for the people on the more noobular scale this might be difficult since you are probably in a 'i need to learn to draw first before i do cool stuff' mode. the best advice i got on this topic was from a teacher who said 'you should never wait, never ask for permission' to do the things that interest you. remember the academic stuff is really the easier part. creative decision making is where the real work is and that part will never get better unless you do that stuff!
note: to the majority: don't feel behind or rushed if you haven't finished the first week's homework. i won't be stacking assignments in the future. i'm only doing it this week because the first week's assignment was timed.
i've been looking at everyone's threads and sketchbooks trying to get a handle on what each person's about, which is taking some time.
i'm also thinking about how to go about demonstrations. right now i am leaning towards some online video setup but i'm not sure. thoughts?
UPDATE: OCT 1
2. also do a 30 min portrait. parameters much like the first weeks.
3. also please post all homework in the following format: (also repost 1st weeks homework in this format if you want it critted)
make ref and drawing fit in 1280x800 pixels, as that's going to be the video crit size. put the ref on the left and the drawing on the right. if there is no ref for that week's homework then obviously you don't need to worry about that. put your name on the bottom in 18 point arial 50% grey.
here's an example:
