It's Time for MY FIRST DRAWING!
Ruben Deanda's fall figure drawing 1 in Jan of 2007. I was so nervous and so excited to be embarking on this new part of my .. self.. life.. And yes - I thought I was rockin' the HOUSe with my drawing.. it got voted 3rd best in class ( this one girl.. I still see her in the hallways.. she was fantastic and dropped the class in week 2).. Ruben taught me so much.. I still hear his voice when I am drawing ( 'shapes, pit of the neck, shoulders aren't the big, it's a sphere, that's a wedge/traingle .. so many tools).. oh man look at that left ARM - it's a knuckle-dragger! and two different knees ? torso that is for a 7 footer ? hah! --- if anyone wonders whether - if you work REALLY hard can you get somewhere ? well not that I'm all that (not YET!) but .. the miles pay off!!
..and that's my first drawing of my 4th semester! Head and Hands last night.. about 1 hour - very unfinished but the model was tilting back and on the edge of falling asleep.. i tried to capture that angle and the eyelids.. not an expert w/Carb Othello sanguine 645 and white but now I want to do more! Tae Park - our teacher, is amazing!
