Sketch face

Decided to try writing my dissertation proposal last night. I've been dreading it all semester. I filled in my name, course and matriculation number and thought, "This isn't so bad." Then I got to the bit about summarising what I plan to write about and freaked out and closed the window. Ended up doodling instead, which was much more fun.

The first page was just doodles, then on the second I was trying to caricature Rachel when I remembered that I can't do that worth a damn so ended up stalking randomly selected friends on Faceboak and just drawing them.

It feels really nice just to draw for the sake of drawing. I don't do it enough but I think I'll try to more. I always say that though...

'Tis the Seasoning

But what were the cutlery up to? Fork knows....

Drawn from life

Have a selection of crappy life drawing I did. First a "best of" selection of doodles from the end of second year:

And now for some from third year. I've been trying to work more on my tonal work as I feel I'm lacking in that particular regard:

These last few are from last week. I had a feedback session with Reinhard and the main thing he suggested was to try some different mediums, so I decided to crack out the biro and invest in some pastel paper. I think it'll take a wee while to warm up to something new though:

Filler filler filler...

I only drew the Buff-allo. Lynsey contributed the original Buffalo (modified by Kat) and the In-da-buff-allo. I'll try and get something a little more nutritious up soon...
