Day 07_Stalking Easton

This time, we took a 'field trip' to the Easton Mall to draw from life.
Besides getting in my 50 drawings that are mandatory for each drawing session for class, me and my friends wandered about and saw the sites.
We stopped in Gamestop for Palkia and pokeballs.
And then to Cinnabon because it is SO GOOD.
(also my first time having it so, wooo.)

Day 06_Boxing Sumo Ice Skaters, GO!

Gestures that were done in class.
They were done from three different videos.
Most were actually done with the video still playing and just trying to remember the pose and get is down as quick as possible. The others were done from freeze frame.

The first video was of Yu-Na Kim from the 2010 Olympics.
Second video was the World Title match between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman.
The last video was of sumo wrestlers wrestling.

Exercise 04_Comedians

Oskar_Låt den rätte komma in

Decided to do a quick speed paint from the movie Låt den rätte komma in (Let the Right One In) before hitting the sack for the day.

Also, f you haven't seen it, I definitely recommend seeing the original Swedish version rather than the terrible American remake.

In the screenshot, it features the main characters: Eli and Oskar.
In the screenshot, Oskar is on the left and Eli is on the left.

For a quick paint, I decided to just focus on Oskar's head and how the colours in the foreground and background interact.
Hope you enjoy.

Quick study done in under 30 min.
Done in Photoshop, one layer.
Original Screenshot.

If you want to see a synopsis of the movie;
here is a link to the IMBD page.
Go check it!

For this assignment, we had to draw from life and then draw the same pose exaggerated.
In the exaggerated pose, we had to substitute the model for one of our own characters
I'm really disappointed in what came out.
Gotta try better in the future. No slacking.

Day 05_Classes in Ballet

For one of my Cafe Sketch classes, we got to sit in on a classic ballet class at the BalletMet.
We got to sketch intermediate dancers and their basic practice routine.
All in all, I really love sketching ballerinas. Especially, if they do classical ballet.
Also, we had to only focus on one ballerina.
(That is difficult for whatever reason.)

Exercise 03_Swing Your Hair and Dress

We had to draw from life or video of women with long hair, long dresses, or both. 
At first I thought it would be hard to find these references.
However, the internet has proven me wrong once again.

Poses range from the waltz, ballroom dancing, and Iraqi interpretation dancing.
Guess which be which.

A later homework post for Cafe Sketch.
No scanner this weekend and class.
Here it is... I'm such a terrible personne.


Day 04_Behind the Dates

I've been having teeth problems and it has put me behind on my post and dates.
So, just to say, these sketches are from September 16.
I've yet to put my missed class make-ups up. They shall come in a future post.
