First attempts, before watching the demo vs second attempts after watching the demo video. (Second attempts have the dates at the bottom) The biggest difference I noticed is the attention to detail in my boot laces. And also the general shape of the snail.
Hello! my name is Mason and I am a costume designer and illustrator from LA. I do have a bit of self taught drawing experience, but I have never taken a formal drawing class! as for materials, I love ProCreate, but my New Years resolution is to work on my traditional skills again! My main drawing utensils are Lyra Rembrandt colored pencils. I also love Markers and graphite. Can’t wait to see what we come up with in this class :)
My favorite medium of choice has always been graphite but really want to learn to paint in oils. After watching the Morgan Weistling video How to Draw Like a Painter, I really can see how learning one medium contributes to another and now refocusing on the basics. Until then, here’s my first attempt on the He-man bear.
I originally started out doodling references from a library book for fun, then I got interested in the lighting for some of the other photos and did quick little studies. I switched to traditional for one last study before bed, I hope to keep up this momentum throughout the course!!
