Didn't have SOCA last week, so no sketches. But we're getting together to do our Faux SOCA friday, so I should have stuff from that. Here's a set of playing card faces I did.
I'm going to be doing an acrylic painting this weekend, so hopefully I'll be able to put something up here that's not just more sketches soon! I just have a lot of semester long projects this semester, so I won't have much to show until it's over.

The idea of this piece was to portray a steam machine without directly drawing one. So I've tried to grab the essence of the technology, and use it to get the feeling of the machine. I made the copper oxidized to show the age and wear of the tech, seeing as how it's not really used anymore, and highly inefficient.
I used watercolor, gouache, acrylic and a bit of white ink on this.

It's spring break! Which means just doing more work! So Maybe you'll see something from me that's more than figure drawings by the end of the week. Maybe.

playing with gouache, trying to get a feel for it. The colors can get muddy so fast. Just some random tentacle haired guy for the test. I think I went over board on the lighting. I think I'll just use white chalk on it's own next time, and probably not ink it. A fun experiment either way. I learned a lot.

Since it was first friday, and the shows were all closed by the time I was done in the crafts dept, myself, Tiffany and Sarah all got together and drew each other. Each drawing was about 10 minutes, since none of us are professional models, and holding poses past that really sucks. What we're thinking of doing, is every first friday getting together, and possibly bring some kind of interesting prop to interact with to draw each other. This would give us all practice with clothes and with people interactions with objects, so I'm all for doing it. We each got about six pages out of this in about two hours or so.
I drew Tiffany saying arg because she was covering one eye, and we were calling her a pirate. :B It was fun! A relaxed atmosphere, no rush between poses, and we could break any time it was needed.

Two non SOCA related life drawings. The one on the left is a person who moved before I could finish her and the view I get from the place I sit for lunch. The drawing on the right is my wax organic object I made in my crafts class. It's been affectionately deemed the death squid.
Three drawings from SOCA. the first one was five minutes, and the other two were 15. She was a lot of fun to draw, I hope she gets to model for us again. My scanner was not a fan of these colors. They WERE a pale yellow and purple with red ink.
And a 20 minute pose. Lots of fun foreshortening.
