apparently we'll be the whole year drawing this kind of sutff at the drawing class... i guess it'll help me see shapes, negative spaces, proportions, in order to start with the human figure in a couple of years... i need to be positive, how i wish i could take my set of watercolours and start sketching but i can't. the good thing also is we've started working in big papers so i'm outta my 6x8" sketchbooks.

life drawing

life drawing Originally uploaded by dibujandoarte
today i tried to do a sketch in a bigger size, 80 x 100 cm. i made several mistakes in the models' size, especially in her legs, but i was fun to so such a big work. i tried this because from next monday on we'll be drawing (shapes, cubes, bottles, not human figure) in 70x100 cm paper at school.

this one is smaller however I drew the model shorter, then this makes him look fatter than he really is. in the previous waercolour you can see that... the WC shows better his real shape.

oh! it's been such a long time since i last took my WC set with me!! I felt i lost some looseness, the little I had gained... anyway, this is another quick sketch during a class today.

my first woodcut

my first woodcut Originally uploaded by dibujandoarte

it's been such a long time (over a month) since my last post! even just now i realize last march 18th. it was one year since i started blogging! MY BIG THANKS TO YOU ALL WHO VISITED AND YOUR ENCOURAGEMENT DURING THIS PAST YEAR!!!!

well, this is my first woodcut ever, for school. it's a scan of the wood itself as i still havent printed it. i've been (am) too busy with school and work. unfortunately this week i had to miss several classes as i wasn't feeling alright then had to stay home. anyway, next tuesday i'll make some prints out of it as it is (unfinished) then after that i have to cut all the white parts in the hen and sun. the first printings have to be made only contour. i'll post it again once it's finished.
