Grad School Week 8: Layout, Develop a Concept, Jungle

We were given 8 or so simple prompts to inspire us for a small 5FLD concept sketch. That’s a pretty small layout drawing, which was good, because concepts should be small. We did thumbs and then larger thumbs and then … Continue reading

Luckily it’s a light week of Grad School, and we had the big fat holiday, but I’m going to start next week more exhausted then I left the last one. I’m spent, and my body seems to think it can … Continue reading

3 figures in different perspectives (reclinig 2pt, sitting 3pt, walking 2pt vertical). We were allowed to use photographs for anatomy reference, but not allowed to draw from actual poses. I used more reference on the 2pt reclining then the others, … Continue reading

One more week off, and then it’s back to teaching…

The time off from teaching has not been nearly as fruitful and relaxing as I had hoped. The “perspective” course I’m taking in Grad School is incredibly time-consuming. Both courses are challenging, but I don’t find myself feeling as rewarded … Continue reading
