Bits from my final project.
Ink on mylar / ballpoint pen on mylar.
We did far less gestures in the second half of the course, so I think we all felt a little rusty.
But these are the best (“best”) from my second half.
This is the same model but, as you can see, it is of considerably less quality. I am retroactively considering it a warm-up. :)
Hated this one. I hated it from the first 20 minutes I started drawing it, and it was the last thing in my portfolio I touched up. And it was all a drag.
The model was pretty cool, though.
So at the end of this last art class (which ended on Thursday), our syllabus invited us to an art show on campus. This art show was the masters presentation for my art professor from this last spring, & I had already decided to go. (My spring classmates (mostly) all agreed to go, too).
Anyway, I’ve never been to an opening before, but I went last night and man it was not a fun experience.
So we’re at the end of this drawing class (the last week is next week) and to cap off the coarse we had a small class show on campus. It’s nothing major, but it’s in a fairly busy spot on campus and it’s going to be up all month, so we’re treating it like a show proper.
Anyway, the opening reception was last night; a first for all of us. It was a lot more stressful than I thought it would be. I drank something like three bottles of water in the first half an hour (and a gross sanpeligrino orange juice).
But it was fun. And my final project turned out pretty decently. I don’t know if I’ll be posting it (it and like four other projects were all self-portraits and, eh… we’ll see).
