These are all of my works from the first semester of my college schooling. I'm really pleased with most of'em, and can see some decent improvement over time. I'll post them in chronological order so you can get a better sense of that.
We first started with perspective, which was good. I got a good grip on it fast, but could probably use more practice. (I'll get around to that once it gets warm out. No way am I sitting outside in the cold just to draw buildings.)Yeah, the lines are kind of curvered.. But all in all its not bad. I think each one's about 2.5 hours each. (I know, a long while for some simple lines, right?)
Then we did some other practices involving tonal mark-making, (No lines, and in this case sideways), and some negative space work. It turns out its really hard to make a negative space drawing turn out decent since it becomes quite hard to proportion stuff. But it was still fun. Skeletons always look cool.
We ended up doing some still-lifes as well, which are kinda fun, but only for so long. I really like the way the deer turned out. Even though he looks like a chihuahua-giraffe. 4.5 hours on both I think. More like 6 on the piggy bank now that I think of it..
One of my favorite things to draw turns out to be trees, which are extremely fun. The large lonely one was an in-class, while the other was a homework assignment I didn't really put enough time into.
