Gabo and Michelle

So I've been really loving photoshop as a life drawing tool as of late. I can experiment wth color and compositions and capture the information that i need in a quicker amount of time then i can by hand. I still love the feeling of traditional media far more, but it's nice to be able to get a nice colored sketch of my friends while we're just casually hanging out.

It's also great because it allows me to experiment with different palettes without wasting materials. Which is AWESOME.

My illustration teacher was sick today, and she told us to go with Warren Linn's visual journalism class and sketch from life. I took this opportunity to respond to my buddy Craig Bower's 4 page spread. That's right! 6 page spread ! It's just of a floor on the University of Baltimore campus. Not nearly as exciting as Craig's......but mine is 6 pages.

I also came to the terrifying and exciting conclusion that I have to start writing my thesis now in order to get it done during senior year.

The grumpiest Cat

Okay so...little known fact that only my high school art teacher knows. I hate watercolor and chalk pastels. Having said this I began to notice that my pastel drawing improved as my knowledge of color theory expanded. I was wondering if the same were true about watercolor, and I have to say the answer is also yes. Granted, I haven't touched this stuff since freshmen year of high school when i swore it was the devil.

I'm Not Dead!

Sorry about not posting in so long, here, look at this. It's about 3ft x 6ft and the medium is pastel. The top right is not complete, but you get the idea. I think it's my best drawing ever. I did it for life drawing last week. I'll also do another post soon for my illustration homework.....I will....I don't need your sass....
