More drawings

More of the older drawings I've recently photographed.

This was drawn with a foot-long string dipped in ink.

It's one thing when you're in crunch time for a project. Quite another when everything is in crunch at once.

I haven't studied for the AP English test in ages, and, with fourteen school days left, my class has another 80 years to cover in AP US History. AP Studio Art is in a similar situation; I have three pieces to finish, but would like to redo two or more.

"Bye Bye Birdie" opens in a week (go if you're in the area!), and rehearsals are going to be lasting until ten or so for the next week.

Most importantly, "PiRats" has got to get done. We're in full swing for production, and after a week of going to bed past midnight, voice acting has been organized and recorded with a cast I was very happy with. Luckily, when the show's over, I'll be able to spend more time cranking out footage.

Obviously, the most important thing to do in this situation is to take everything one step at a time, but that ges difficult when everything overlaps (I've risked missing many a cue by running across campus to grab something from the animation room). Figure drawing's probably the only remaining time where I have the comfort of not only focusing on the present. So! Enough rambling, here are some of the older drawings I've just shot.

Aw, heck

Might as well throw a few more up while I'm online.

I really should also talk to a couple of my old instructors, as well as get some color into my drawings. The reason for the lacking in that department is that when I started this figure drawing class, I decided it would be a foundation course. I wanted to relearn what I thought I knew about drawing (considering how poor a draftsman I found myself to be in the past few months), so I tried to avoid complicating that with color. However, with portfolios due in 8 months (!), I can't afford to wait any longer.

Then again, if that doesn't work out, a career as a burger flipper is also honorable.

Shameful, just shameful

Yes, it's been over a month. Even with figure drawing classes weekly (with Dennis and Lauren from CSSSA, no less), AP Studio Art, and animating for K9's class film (8 weeks to deadline!), my art posting here has been sadly mediocre. However, until I do some digital clean up on some drawings, here are a few samplings.

Well, that's that! I still have a shot for animation to finish (the learning curve with digital clean-up is killing me) and a project for art to complete, so it's back to work for me.
