I wanted to post my drawings from my first class. She had us draw a face and our hand before giving us any instructions. It took me forever to draw my face it seemed. I kept erasing and redrawing! These might be hard to see since the drawings are in pencil.
Then she gave us some instruction and then told us to do blind contour. We were to draw our hand but couldn't look at our paper!
Then after doing this exercise, we did modified contour which we could look at our paper 10% of the time. I kept moving my hand and then I didn't get it back in the original position. My hand looks a little off for that reason!
Then she got out a photo of an eye and had us draw the outline and then we added shading. Shading really is what makes the picture. I feel like I need to work more on shading. I didn't like how I did my eyelashes. This isn't bad for my first try!
Then class was over. :-( I hope to be able to go back in the next week or so and learn more! :-)
