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!

Isn't Ruben a great instructor? His was the first class I ever took at the academy as well and god I think it was in that class that I realized how much there was to learn about art. It's so funny to dig up the old drawings isn't it? Ya almost have to keep them to see how far you've come, and you, well you have come pretty far in just a year. WOW!

Oh wow that is really a shame about Ruben I had no idea. I am not sure what drawings were my first but I actually just uploaded a drawing of a fabric fold for this portfolio I'm making through lulu.com so I posted it on my blog too. I know I drew this in his class cuz that is the majority of the assignments he gave out. I had flashbacks looking through all of that old stuff.

I should find my first figure drawing too. lol

I am freakin' amazed by your progress in only a year!

let's give 110% in chuck's and tae's class!!!

Gue said...

CF3 is awesome. Chuck is very nice and a understanding guy, but I'm still nervous approaching him. Our class is so-so, but they could get better if they work hard. Yeah, i know, i was freaking rusty on day one. How's the bunch in your's?

well wait - to be clear it WAS a year and 3/4 ago!!! ( see not as much development as you all think!!!) ;-) Gu - after the first drawing i thought all the juniors and seniors were crazy good.. then I settled down and think they are.. fine.. i think the key is drawing on the west side of the room as the sun sets i got a bit whited-out by light.. also.. drawing right next to Chuck on the first day.. MISTAKE!! ;-)
