My pencil sharpener broke so I ended up doing these with a sharpie. I'll get a new sharpener or make a sanding block and try again tomorrow. Lots of room for growth on these, but I like this approach. I'm going to be doing more these with my drawing group via Zoom on Sunday, December 3rd. If anyone wants to join us, DM me.
Hokay, so this one was NOT in my comfort zone, but I loved it. It's a great feeling to be given a new and useful approach to drawing. I'm going to have to lean into this one a bit before it feels natural, but I'm happy with what I learned with this first one.
Here are my first drawings of the course from this morning. A few of us taking the course have formed a drawing group that meets via Zoom. We meet on Sunday EST at 7PM and we also meet a few times a week early in the morning-- 3AM EST, which might be a good option for those in different time zones, or for those who don't mind getting up crazy-early. DM me if interested.
Would anyone like to join me in a study session type group chat? We'd meet every few days, watch the lessons, critique each others art, and so on. I'm only level 1 in this, and my line art isn't great, but that's why I want other people I can have conversations and critiques on each others art with, so I can see where I need to go and be kept accountable for doing the lessons. Dm me if interested.
Is there anyone else here doing this course that have a chronic illness? I struggle alot atm. My illness has been worse the last 7 weeks. With fever everyday and im just lying in bed. I live for doing art but havent been able to draw or sculp anything the last weeks. It makes me so sad. Anyone else in similar situation?
I'm a very anxious artist. There isnt much I get anxious about any more. But I gotta say, The whole concept of intuition and allowing my self to trust my self really makes me anxious. Even watching Stans video about this master study i was anxious the whole time. It feels so big and mysterious even if at some level I think i understand. Letting my self not make a perfect copy of the master i'm studying. At times when i start to copy a piece i'm not sure if i'm doing it right, Am I just mindlessly copying a piece of art? Or am I learning something important from it. I have been attempting to copy the works of other artists better then me for a while. But I have difficult time taking off those training wheels and allowing my self to draw something from imagination, while using the shapes, or designs, or lines that I should of learned from the masters i studied . This is just getting some of my thoughts out. I'm super anxious just thinking about it, i hope one day I can throw aside my anxiety and just draw.
