Whelp, I am officially done with my studies at Angel Academy, done with my last figure drawing, and as done as I’ll ever be with my cast drawing. I learned a TON in the two trimesters I spent at Angel Academy and am now looking forward to learning heaps more with Angela Cunningham at her studio in Marshall, NC.
I finished my long pose figure drawing that took around 30-ish hours I guess. I am pretty happy with how it turned out… I struggled a lot throughout the drawing and kept fixing problems over and over again which is great for learning purposes. If there wasn’t any struggle there wouldn’t be any learning. This is a 40 cm figure done with graphite on Canson paper.
I also almost finished my cast drawing. I had to skimp on some things because I ran out of time. It would have been nice to have another week to really get everything finished but it will have to do the way it is. I learned TONS from doing this cast (which means I struggled tons). The cast was done with Fusian Charcoal on Roma paper.
And a few details:
My friend Hemali took the pictures… I couldn’t have really made this post without her awesome camera skills. Thanks!!
There may be a brief pause in posts for the next few weeks as I will be on the road but do check back soon. I plan on sketching the next few weeks and will continue to update throughout my studies with Angela as well. Thanks for following a long!
