Life drawing stuff from last week

Panting model from last week. I can't remember if these were 2 or 5 minute poses. 

Also guys I put this book as a PDF on the assets drive in the weekly section.  Please check it out, it could be a great source of inspiration to get you drawing more in your sketchbooks.

hey guys I was working on some various clothing options for my character so this is just a draft of a couple of the different clothing choices I had in mind.
I think I am also going to end up making this a finished artwork when I am done as well.

Post stuff

Hey everyone!

So we've decided we're gonna have a workshop style class next Tuesday the 30th 
10am-1pm in room 8. 

I was going to focus on the face, feet and hands and wouldn't mind if anyone wanted to talk about their approaches to these as well. Also we will do some drawing icebreakers.  I'll bring some snacks, feel free to bring some as well. Please post in the  comments if you have other suggestions:) 

Don't forget to post some work from our life drawing class today!


Hey everyone,
I just wanted to encourage you all to keep filling in your sketchbooks as this is an assessment that is worth 40% DUE in week 12. 

Visual diary Feedback MED104
Here are some tips based on viewings of visual diaries so far.
You should take note of these points in order to get the best possible marks for your visual diary. Remember this item is worth 40% of your assessment for this subject!
  • Put dates and time spent on all drawings (even those done outside of class)
  • Include descriptions (is it an idea for a game character? etc.)
  • Do more drawing outside of class (you should be doing about 6
    hours a week- show evidence of this in your visual diaries!!)
  • Do more drawing from life- (real objects and people rather than just
    fantasy work)
  • Show evidence of research (paste in magazine images or printouts from the web- and use them as inspiration)
  • Finish class exercises (use your out-of-college drawing time to complete class exercises- make sure you indicate how much time you spend on this)
  • Experiment with different media (have a go at using markers, watercolour, or charcoal etc. Keep in mind soft pencils and charcoal may smudge so maybe invest in some spray fixative- or hairspray!)
  • Make sure you do any readings recommended by your lecturer or tutor. Drawings based on extra readings and self-research will be highly regarded when assessing visual diaries. Check your weekly lecture notes and folders for these.
  • Use your Visual diary to take notes during the lecture- particularly to note artists I mention which you need to know about (and might not be in the PowerPoints). In my experience, Qantm students who take notes in lectures do better than those who don’t. It also helps to identify students who have a good work ethic when it comes to things like Internships! ☺

was checking out this website called chrome experiments, and essentially its just little toys and things experimenting with html 5, there is some pretty cool artistic stuff in there too though
most of them require google chrome to work

draw lines to block off rays of light, and deflect them, sounds weird, looks nice

sculpt  in 3d.
I prefer to use the bronze texture, you can make some cool stuff with patience

the web page where I found them,
theres a lot of cool nerdy stuff on here too, if you are into that

Anita's first post

Ive been practising character emotions for assignment 3. This stylised version of Ariel was done by David Bilson.

I just copied the above one however I used his style to create my own versions with different emotions. I realise Im avoiding hands and feet but just doing emotions is an achievement for me! :) 

I hope they're not too hard to see.

Stippling is going to be the death of me  I swear.

Strip Search

Hey everyone!

I'm kinda hooked on this web show at the moment called STRIP SEARCH.
The best way to describe it's format is probably 'America's next top web comic artist'. The first 2 episodes are kind of boring but after that I think you will find it interesting and maybe inspiring.
