Some Drawings from week 5

Figure dump from FEWS and Monumental Still Life.

Mass Project

Whoohoo this is my mass project! It was an assignment that was suppossed to depict mass. The concept is a bulky man on top of an octopus. I could have done better with the anatomy on the man and the octopus but I am satisfied with the final result. My favorite part was painting it.

Ringling Week 4 is over!

I can't believe a month has passed at Ringling! I came to the school wondering what it would be like being surrounded by an artistic community. I had never visited the campus before coming here. As I arrived on campus after a two-day road trip, I was greeted by some friendly orientation leaders. The campus was definitely more colorful and well landscaped than I had pictured. My favorite part about Ringling,though, are the students. The artists here range from every possible skill level. Everyone here is friendly and helps each other out. If there are assholes, I've yet to meet one.

Well I can say I've learned or relearned stuff like building armatures,the human skeleton,contour lines,reflected light,and negative spaces. Also I'm thankful for more opportunities to draw from life.

I'm still trying my best to update weekly (i missed by a day lol)Here is a sample of sketchbook pages and live anatomy studies from this week. Everything posted was done 20 min or under.
