Distraction.

My sibling wants me to complete this, and since it requires putting together small pieces, it will take some time.

I’m taking a while on Week 3 since I’m researching facial planes not covered by Hampton’s videos. Neither is study on skull planes.

Sorry for the unresponsive last few days.

I went through a withdrawal from my assignment and was decompressing. Though I didn’t get as far as I hoped, I didn’t entirely forget about what I had to do and watched some videos about drawing heads and one of Vilppu’s gesture video. I was completely discouraged about my last timed gesture sketches and that contributed to a blow on my self-esteem.

I was distraught over the appearance of my head constructions, too. But hey, practice makes perfect and getting stuck on this is not good for me in the long run.

Tired today.

I will be spending time today looking at Vilppu gesture vids and browsing Hampton’s figure drawing book. Using Vilppu as a supplemental guide is a great benefit. He even explains the box body that Hampton didn’t explain in the first video.

But yea, I’m tired. I created three other secret blogs about other studies to update along with this blog, and I also clean and cook around the apartment because my youngest sibling can’t take care of herself.

Also I’m spending too much time browsing 4chan so that’s my mistake. I won’t go on 4chan or other networking sites until the end of this year.

I’m going to sleep early.

(I have like, three days to finish my head constructions.)

Edit: Starting on value study for a tree. Now I go to sleep.

Gesture warmups, then notes.

Yesterday I went to B&N and got a cheap skeleton book. It didn’t have a lot of pages but it was pretty much the only other anatomy book I can find that didn’t lean towards medical ref. The selection for artist anatomy books was disappointing.

Today I’m sitting through a session of quick poses. I stopped cleaning up the gesture lines because it was eating up my time. Watching head construction video again.

Edit: Stopped at 27 minutes to go to bed. Due to the rain I am tired earlier than expected.
