Bendragon: Yest sir! I plan on doing just that.
BlackDelphin: Hehe... that's my leg so thanks! No one wants to sit still for me. The neck isn't a study, but doing neck studies earlier helped a ton.
bill main: Thanks! Need to go dust those watercolours off some more.
Weeeeelllll... I've decided I'm going to take a bit of a break from digital work. Traditional is just so much easier and faster for me personally. It's more enjoyable and easier to just let loose. Currently I'm..... I don't want to say confused, 'cause I'm not, but I'm just really, really unsure as to what on earth I'm going to do with myself after I finish high school and that's been haunting me. Whenever I have free time, I just kinda wander and do a bit of everything I enjoy (too much reading!!!) and just in general feel a bit aimless. I have no goal or passion or whatever. I'll browse people's sketchbooks etc. and see people who are working sooooo hard to be concept artists, and architects etc. and it bothers me to no end. I just feel that if I had a definite goal, I could be more focused. I don't know.... gahhhh. Emotion dump. I've been thinking of this a lot obviously.
And now for the real post.... Went to an air show yesterday!!!!!!!! Saw aerobatics with the smoke and everything, and fighter jets, and vintage planes from the 30s onwards. By the end of the day I had sunburn and was too drained and excited to draw properly which can be seen in the worsening of the pen sketches.
So, there's an acrylic study. It turned out pretty well (better than the photo shows). I only have titanium white, cadmium red med., hansa yellow med., mars black, and pthalo blue (red shade). This means that it's impossible to get a good purple or pink because of the such non-blue red. I've had to pick objects to paint very carefully.
