Independent Study Drawing 1

"Nowhere to Go" (working title)

Here is the drawing I've been working on for the last month and a half. It's part of a series of three drawings I am doing over the summer (for fall credit). In case you want to know, that girl in the drawing is my mom. :D

To try and show more my process, I decided to take photos as I was working on this. So... I'll post those now. I apologize for the horrific quality. I was just snapping photos quick in order to help me with proportions.

(For the finished drawing I scanned it, hence the super better quality)

Ahh! Wow. That's a lot of sad girls. This post will probably look like a sad girl invasion. :D

Random Update/Sad Little Girl

Uh... well, more than two days have passed, and still I have not updated with my new drawing. Though this is hard for me to believe, I am still not done. Keep in mind that I have labored intensely over this drawing for almost two months. You think it could spare me a few moments of sanity and just finish itself! Blah. Thankfully I'll be finishing it tonight, which means thankfully I'll be posting something I actually worked hard on - and is new - soon.

For now, here's a sad little girl.

Two pieces that I have a like/hate relationship with...

Okay... so I feel like updating my blog, even though I don't have all that much to show. Like, I just have these two pieces that have been buried in my documents folder for god knows how long now. I've decided to post them since, well, I did work really hard on them, and I do, sometimes - in a rare and fleeting moment - like their existence. During all other times, though, I can't help but pick them apart and talk about all their flaws, which I guess I do with all of my pieces, but these... even more so.

This first piece is from my Dry Media class. The assignment was to do a pastel portrait of any screen shot in the movie Blade Runner. So I drew that one girl... I don't even really remember her name, oh well. So yeah, that's her. The documentation isn't all that great. That blue is actually a little more turquoise. But whatever.

"That One Girl from Blade Runner"

This second piece is a skate deck design for Illustration 2. The prompt was "dogs doing bad things." I decided to draw some fire breathing Dalmatians setting a forest on fire. I do have a color version of this, but it is awful, awful, so awful... Like, the fire makes me want to puke. I don't know why - something about it does not work! The only thing redeemable on the color version are the dogs' fire hats. I was proud of those, but yeah, not enough to post. So here's the black and white charcoal drawing... Doesn't really look like the Dalmatians are breathing fire, which makes me a little sad. Instead it could almost be water! And yep, that makes me sadder.

"Fire Breathing Dalmatians Setting a Forest on Fire"

In the next day or two I should be updating with a drawing that is actually new! So I am excited for that. I guess I don't know why I'm announcing it on this post. But hey, yeah! I'm going to bed now.
