Another Watercolor

This year I'm in Advanced Watercolor, my third semester of taking watercolor. YAY! ^_^ Being in Advanced Watercolor, I'm allowed to decide what I paint. But the catch is it has to be fine arts like, so NO illustrations. Sad face. My teacher used to allow Illustration majors do illustrations, but he kept thinking they were doing homework in his class instead.
Anyways, I chose to do portraits of loved ones. So I decided to do a picture of my brother and niece. It's such a beautiful picture, I love it a LOT! So I thought I would paint it. ^_^
Of course it doesn't look exactly like the photo, but then if I wanted that I wouldn't of painted it I would have just enlarged the photo and left well enough alone. It was fun painting it and a little nerve-wracking. As I progressed and saw that all was well so far, I got nervous wondering if I'd mess it up. But I think it's pretty well done. What do you think?

Let me tell you, babies are HARD to draw. And HARD to paint. I think this is the second baby I've EVER tried to draw realistically. I can see the mistakes ...

It was really fun painting my brother's hair, and I couldn't help but giggle as I painted in my brother's chest hair. ^_^

Alright, have a GREAT weekend lovelies! ^_^

Humorous Il.

Adam West
watercolor, colored pencils
Fall 2010

This year at CCAD (also my LAST one), I'm taking the Humorous Illustration class. Our first assignment was to draw a caricature of a famous person. I chose Adam West, the best Batman EVER! I chose a middle aged picture of him to work from, not totally sure why.
Maybe because he has glasses in his older life and I'm a sucker for glasses on anyone. ^_^ Or maybe I wanted to make it seem like he's taking up his cape and cowl again for the greater good. Hmm, who knows? Don't you love how profound I am? ^_^

Portrait Drawing

graphite (F, 3B), 9-2-10

This past week was the LAST first week of school for me (hopefully)! I am now a senior (I still find it hard to believe my teachers passed me those previous years) at CCAD (Columbus College of Art and Design). Crazy, right?

Anyhoo, this little guy is the first portrait I've done in my Portrait class I'm taking this semester. I feel as if I should have taken that class last year, but my schedule was crazy as it was. Better late then never I guess. ^_^

I set myself up to do a profile view of the model, I feel that's my strength when it comes to the human head. I had fun drawing him, though the beard was different, I've never tried to draw a white beard before. The ear is messed up, the angles aren't quite right. But I LOVE his nose and eyes. ^_^ I wish I had time to finish it off, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Alright then, bye bye!
