I'm having a hard time liking my sketchbooks right now. Just started this one yesterday.. i'm not sure about it yet maybe with due time it will get better but for now i feel like everything im drawing is forced because i'm really nervous about applying for calarts again. I want it so bad i'm staying positive but i think im over thinking everything. I should be having fun not hating my work! Maybe i need to take a short break.
I love life drawing! It's just so much fun!! I went to another session today, here are some of my favorites i did.
1 minute each
2 minutes each
1 minute each
Also i went to SDCC!! It was a blast i met so many wonderful artists and spent all my money on art books and prints from everyone. I also so Misha Collins! How rad is that? Here's my haul from the con
So many art books so little time! Honestly my favorite book i got from the con was Stephen Silver's Passion for Life book. His life drawings are incredible i could look at that book all day! Speaking of Stephen Silver, here i am with him:
He talked to me for a while about art and signed the book i bought from him. And then i talked to David Coleman and he drew an owl in the book i bought from him! That was so neat. I met Chris Sanders as well, and i made a fool of myself in front of him i got so nervous and flustered but it was so cool to meet him! I went to Brittney Lee's booth but she wasn't there and i was totally bummed but i still got a print from her. I was so nervous i didn't go up to Cory Loftis and i really really wanted to haha i get so nervous around these amazing people. Also saw Stan Lee, that was pretty neat. So many famous people so many amazing artists it was crazy. I had so much fun i hope i can go again next year!!
Today i finally got to go to my first life drawing session. Needless to say i was extremely nervous, however when i got there i felt much more relaxed and it was a great environment and i was surrounded by a lot of great people. A lot of great old people, but still great. I am extremely rusty and out of practice but i gave it my best shot! I can't wait to go again next week!!
