Whoa, it's already March! Soon my life will be consumed with the Nintendo Switch and the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. BUT FEAR NOT! I have been drawing, only it's been of the life drawing nature. So I will warn you now that there will be nudity in this post.
So a few months back, I discovered this school in Park Forest, IL called the Tall Grass Arts Assocation. Every second Sunday they have a life drawing session where you can just come in and draw from a model. It costs $15 per session but essentially you are just paying for the model alone. You can bring your own supplies and it's a free, chill environment. I am out of practice so I decided to take advantage of this class to do what I miss about being at the Academy. The human body is honestly my favorite subject to draw, hence why I love character design so much. So I'm just going to post a few sketches/drawings I've made from the sessions! (Model: Gen, 01/12/17)
I decided to use my watercolor markers again for a quick close-up and color study of the model. I didn't turn my sketchbook horizontally so I didn't capture all that I wanted to draw. Should've trusted my instincts the first time.
ALSO I have decided to start up a Patreon account. It was a bold move on my part and I'm pretty glad I made the decision to do it now. Just to quote myself: "Patreon is a place for content creators (artists, musicians, podcasts, etc.) and what it does is help us, well, create! You, the supporter, would pick out the amount to pay per month with the available tiers shown or per post and you will actually get rewards back such as a new print or a private live stream...you know, things like that!" With the Patreon, I hope to start on a comic book series that I am currently calling project: HANASU.
Here's the link to the Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/avdoodles
So far, I've decided to post about once or twice a week. Reminder, the higher the tier, the more content you get to see from me behind the scenes! :D
But that's all I have to say for now. I'll probably have more to post when I get my Patreon up and running! See you later!
