Almost halfway done.

I will use polymer clay next time. This clay that I’m using keeps breaking because it’s a stiff and crumbling type clay (breaks on the spinal process and ribs). But I am finally finished with the scapula, just need to mold the skeletal hand before baking.

Skeletal hand that needs to be molded.

I’ve made more notes. I’ve decided to write with a blue pencil since I keep getting graphite on my hand. I’m almost out of General’s Colortex np blue pencil. Haven’t gone through Prismacolor’s np pencil yet.

I drew my previous notes in graphite then inked it. The tracing paper still leaves smudges though.
Writing my notes in np blue pencil. No smudges.
I sharpen with a razor and a small cheap sand block for the tips. Less waste for these blue leads. I use to draw in Crayola color pencils.

That didn’t go the way I thought it would.

Before trying to practice drawing heads, I wanted to see what would happen if I sat through a longer session and shorter amount of time than my previous gesture practices. No erasing or tuning up the drawings. I wanted to see where I was going.

Well, it was worse than I thought. At 30 second intervals instead of 45 (and 40 weird poses per session), I panicked more than I anticipated. No time to think where to put down my strokes. It didn’t help that I didn’t draw yesterday either.

I’ll try again tomorrow since I wasn’t use to the pace. I dove into some notes in Hampton’s figure drawing book since it went more in depth than his videos.

notesThis is pretty embarrassing too, but I forgot so much steps in his head construction lecture. I think I have to refer to¬†skull studies to understand it more. I’m not even to the muscles yet, but I regret not learning figure drawing when I was younger. Oh well. Better late than never.

Anatomy notes.

I didn’t understand much of the landmarks on the forearm and legs when practicing anatomy, so I watched a few videos and took notes instead.

My sibling bought Arkham Horror LCG so I’ve been playing with it. That ate up my time yesterday. Now I will go make sticky rice.

Just a lot of notes.

Took some notes from Hampton’s vid and started reading a pdf on color theory. Also found out I have his figure drawing book so I can refer to it when drawing weird proportions. My assignment is to complete 25 constructions. On top of that and why the hell not, more gestures.

Here’s an image that I screencapped from his first video. This is the schedule I am following. I’ll be skimming through a few more art books for other assignments after I’m done with Hampton.
