sketchbook doodle that I scanned and colored
Study of a Leon Bonnat painting I did. All opaque brush so that I could practice picking colors by eye!
Illustration assignment where we had to depict what hell and heaven meant to us, with an emphasis on the impact lighting can have!
Completed my yearlong project of drawing a robot every day. This is piece number 365!
It’s been an interesting experience. Originally, the goal was set to make myself draw every day. That worked well, especially through the summer, but when the fall semester came, It became taxing. Having anatomy and pictorial foundation meant I was drawing for ~4 hours every day in those classes and the days I did homework, I rarely had it in me to sit down for another hour or so to do a well thought out robot. Eventually I resorted to last minute track pad robots before heading to bed. By the end of the year, daily robots became more of a technicality than an excuse to draw. Eventually I found the theme of robots confining, and resorted to dropping a tiny robot in a large landscape or stapling rivets to an otherwise normal human body to satisfy my own criteria. But what I did realize was that school work and personal work didn’t and shouldn’t have to be separate. Last semester I produced more personal work than my whole first year at college. Robot a Day taught me how to be excited about an assignment even if it was me doing the assigning.
sketch I’ll hopefully develop. Really pleased so far! feels nice when you surprise yourself when you draw
