A pastel

I hesitate to post this, because it is only the second pastel I’ve ever tried to do, and the first pastel was just the week before last. I was really not confident about pastels, but after this one, I feel a lot better and I am looking forward to the pastel self-portrait we will be doing as out final project. Some areas are more developed than others because I was really focused on the face. This is from Academy reference and it’s about 16″x20″.12_graysm.jpg

First semester – done!

I am finally done with my first semester at the Academy of Art University. It was tough, I learned a lot, and now I am sitting back with a Guinness. Here is my last drawing. It’s not all that great, but then again it’s not that bad either. This is black and white charcoal on toned paper, about 16″x20″, and I enjoyed doing it.

Another from Figure Studio

Finally, I have done a figure drawing that I feel is decent enough to post. It’s a foreshortening study, and it took a little under two hours. Charcoal, as usual.
