More Messy Writing :p
I know I am not the only one that can sometimes have problems starting the first page in a sketchbook. I've tried just skipping ahead a few pages which for some reason seemed to make it easier to put pencil to paper. This time I just decided to put pencil to the first page and of course a dragon showed up. But its almost a full bodied sketch so maybe college is doing more for my art then I think it is.
Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying going just not 100% sure what I am achieving besides a lot of drawings of skulls and nekkid people :p Having said that, I think that life drawing class is probably what is helping me when drawing things other then portraits and close ups. Easier to see how things are connected in the bigger picture, not just one area.
Possibly over analyzing what we are doing but hmm probably something I can't help doing. And in the end I will probably see improvement, (at least I would hope lol) when going through everything from start to finish. So I figure at the very least I will have learned to draw the human form better, at the very best have some drawings I like, and at the very worst have decided that going to school for art isn't for me. One or more of those options.
Did I mention its cold? No? Well it is, and if I knew more Scottish sayings about the cold I would write them here. But my luck they would probably get me into trouble or I would get angry emails about them. I can think of a few I heard in Canada describing the cold but once again would result in me probably getting angry emails so I will just say its cold and leave it at that. But its bloody cold out!
Question for readers :) Cold sayings where you live if it gets cold, and if it doesn't get cold can I sleep on your couch? (I cook and clean and could walk the dog :D :p)
