First Drawing Class for Third Semester

So yes, the third semester has begun, and boy oh boy, there is work to be done. The professors at F.I.T. don't waste any time, which is a really good thing! Although I have been practicing, I've been a bit rusty when drawing live models, especially when you are timed.
In this particular class, we will be studying shadow intensely, as well as building up volume in the figure. We will work in different mediums, such as charcoal, watercolor and pencil. In these particular drawings, I used charcoal and newsprint, which is a really good combination.

UGG Australia II

Everyone always says to challenge yourself as much as you can, that way you can get better at what you are doing. For example, when it comes to drawing models or pictures of magazines, I always tend to try to and look out for models that are in weird productions; something that I hope that I succeeded in today.

Something for my brother....

Drew Barrymore is my brother's secret crush. He doesn't just tell anyone that, but whenever he sees her on the television, he always says something like, "Wow....." and just trails off; which is why I decided to draw her out today. Hope you like it Javier!

Another Ann Taylor Ad...

I tried to practice more rendering today, something that does take great concentration, I do admit. Thing is, this coming fall semester, I have to take a rendering class, something that I'm excited about. However, the more practice I get, the more I can get out of it.

Throughout art, I always tend to think that silhouettes are also very powerful. This image is just blacks and grays, but, mostly bold black. It's not powerful, but according to the photograph, I think it makes a statement.

Sticking with It....

Of course, when in the art world, you do have to experiment with a great many things, especially when it comes to materials. However, when you have a great liking to a specific material, you sort of stick with it. I don't know if its because of the consistency, or the color, but lets say that walnut ink has been officially added my favorite list. I know that I have said this before in previous postings, but I will say it again, I highly recommend you use walnut ink! This commercial ad for Anne Klein clothing is something that  I have created by incorporating walnut ink and pastels into a drawing, something that up until today I would never have thought of using.

UGG Australia

I really like the snug look of this girl. It reminds of fall, with the big sweater and the cozy boots. I've decided to go a bit crazy with this piece, using a variety of mediums: water-soluble crayons, sharpie markers, and black ink. Since I've been using the walnut ink nowadays, I felt that the black ink was a bit intimidating for me today.....
