Love the first two for clean powerful graphics . The intentionally limited palette, color washes, and shape distributions of the first and second images elicits a very satisfying Japanese screen printing vibe for me. Love your variation of shapes and distribution of hues in the second one, and well controlled value distribution and line in the first one!

My Unexpected Superhero is the Digital Security Warrior and protector inside all my IOS devices, but specifically my Ipad.  Unseen, and unsung, the IOS defender effectively repels an onslaught of digital threats.  I have imagined, gendered, incarnated, and depicted him as a hyper-masculine digital seraphim warrior. He has many devices in his tool belt to protect and repair code from oncoming malware threats, but he mostly employs a binary code-wielding sword against the invaders, and launches telepathically controlled “repair algorithm cubes”to restore corrupted code. His gauzy levitating wings and halo, also composed of binary code, inform you that this telepathic digital warrier operates with the support of mystical allies.  I imagined the digital malware invaders coming in swarms. I represented the large dominant malware attackers (shown in translucent cream) to be a chimeric amalgamation comprised of machine, insect, human, virus, and blemmyae (a mythical race of headless people) The scene depicts the slaying of a malware invader by our superhero. The malware  attacker depicted has a redundant “spine”, and bleeds red and green blood where it is transected at the midriff.  It will require strength, bravery, endurance, and a mystical devotion to manage the ongoing digital malware invasion. My unexpected superhero is ready.

Where are the assignments in the premium version. In the non-premium version you could download them from YouTube but I don’t see them in the premium version. To get the assignments should I be going to YouTube? Or is it somewhere in the premium course that I downloaded but I don’t know where it is? I’m looking for the downloads for the spine assignment

Here’s my attempt at drawing the loomis head from extreme angles (maybe not extreme enough?). I should have probably left the neck outlines out but I’m fascinated with the way the neck connects to the head in these angles. Also no.4 looks off proportion wise but I’m not sure why? Any critique & tips are much appreciated!

Drawings 4,7,8 lack lines showing the relationship of the neck and shoulders. The other 5 drawings have Lines indicating the neck shoulders and sternocleidomastoid muscles. That is why 4,7,8 drawings make the head look at disembodied.

OK Andrew, you asked for it! The first sculpture Of the first sculpture course that I took as an adult was 2 years ago. It was human portrait sculpting in water based clay. It was the only weekend I had off so I took the course even though it was way above my skill set of nothing in figurative sculpture . I had a little memory of human proportions as it had been years since I did any visual arts at all, even drawing. The textures are terrible the proportions are off, The cranialfacial structure is abnormal, And the ear looks like an old boxer’s!! The neck is collapsed. From the front view, my otherwise normal looking 20 something model looks like an older “Data”from Star Trek ' if I remember correctly! There are some good aspects and it was a great learning experience!. It looked nothing like a model at all. It was vaguely humanoid and that was an accomplishment for me at the time.

Got the NSP Chavant clay brick from Amazon. Found it in my mailbox this morning in New Hampshire, and it was cold. I had a hard time cutting it with a butter knife so I stabbed a lot and broke it into hard pieces. I discovered on the internet  that 30 to 45 seconds in the microwave warmed it up. I tried to build foil boxes as an Armature. I would discover later that they were too big . I had to rip out the foil in the pelvis region later in the project, and I was literally carving on foil in the torso. If you haven’t done this project yet, make a smaller Armature and make sure there’s plenty of clay over it. I made the basic shape of the torso and compared against the computer pictures but finally gave up and printed out 10 pictures because I was worried about my oily hands all over the computer. I added bits and pieces trying to get the basic shape and eventually adding anatomy as I understand it. I used less than a quarter  brick of clay, a butter knife to smooth things, and a paper clip to cut off excess, and dig  out clay.

How do you study anatomy from Bridgman? What are the prerequisites or necessary skills/theories you need to learn before delving into that? Also, aside from Bridgman, what others artists or sources would you suggest for beginners to use to learn anatomy? Thank you very much for taking questions from us!

Looked at some you tube videos. Don't know what else I need to start. For the first lessonI guess I will also need wire cutters or Pliers to make an armature? How will I soften the clay? Torches, lighters, double boiler?hair dryer?What is recommended? What solvent is safest for a low circulation area? I Never made an armature or worked with oil based clay. I apologize I posted these questions elsewhere also. Thanks!!

I understand for your course, you suggested oil based clay, and you recommended:NSP medium by Chavant. Will you post complete list of what is necessary for your course. How many bricks do you suggest I order for the course?. Do I need a lighter, a torch? a double boiler? which solvent is safest to use in a basement, my work space? Do I need a solvent? I am seeing hints from youtube that different folks are using different stuff. I have worked in water based clay, but have no idea what tools are specific to oil-based clay. I would like to begin to order, make, or locate them in preparation for coursework.

I am interested in doing The Proko course work digitally. This is new to me as I have no digital training. I have done some research and decided to purchase a 2020 iPad Pro with procreate ap and an apple pen (2nd gen.) Does anyone know where I can find a video of how to use the procreate app on a tablet ( ipad) to do anatomy contouring Of muscles Or drawing bones over imported photographic images? Also, how to isolate and Colorize muscle groups would help. Any tutorial on the mechanics of using the digital equipment for the assignments of Stans course would help. I downloaded procreate pocket on the iPhone so I can begin to understand the basic tools . I have found some very basic videos that give me clues, and very complicated videos on YouTube that I can’t follow. I can guess how this might happen using the tools I have seen, but I still have some questions about How do you use layers and alpha masks and reference assignment and the other tools in the program. Is there a “lasso tool” in procreate pocket 4.0 ? Can’t find it. What does it mean to lock or group layers? Why can’t I paint on a layer that’s been grouped? Can someone make a video Of doing Prokos anatomy assignments with the iPad and procreate app, Then I I could focus on the anatomy and not the mechanics of the digital device.

The shading could be used to create better volumes with more light, shadow core and reflected light. Muscles of arm need more asymmetry
