Daily Sketchbook 4/29

Here is the full image from what you have worked on from two previous class periods. As before, PENCIL ONLY. Begin making the image more complete. In terms of the background you may choose to include the bench they are sitting on, or you may choose to create a different surface.
Do not do any shading in the background other than a sitting surface. 
I want you to concern yourself more with getting them drawn and shaded well.
Also, as before, use the ipad only for utilizing the photo reference.

Daily Sketchbook 4/27

Today you can use your in-class daily sketchbook time to work on a study drawing that you will turn in on Friday - which is when your monthly study drawing due date is. Only take 15 min for this and then move on to your project please.
And don't forget that your study drawings are due at the beginning of class on Friday.


Daily Sketchbook 4/25

Here is the image for the right hand side of the double page spread you began last time.
Remember, PENCIL ONLY.
You will not "finish" this today - and are not expected to. You are expected to get the proportions down and to do a great job overall though.
Also, ONLY USE AN IPAD FOR REFERENCING THE PHOTO. So if you are reading this on your phone, walk over and get an ipad please. Prop it up on your desk for reference.

Daily Sketchbook 4/21

This is your image inspiration to draw IN PENCIL ONLY today.
Begin by designating the next blank double page spread with this guy on the left hand side page. Draw him as realistically as possible. Do not expect to completely finish.
We will be working on this image and double page spread for multiple days so DO NOT draw anything else on these two pages.
Remember, pencil only. Also, ONLY USE AN IPAD FOR REFERENCING THE PHOTO. So if you are reading this on your phone, walk over and get an ipad please. Prop it up on your desk for reference.

I took just a few photos in class yesterday so you can see what some of the process looks like.

Daily Sketchbook 4/13

Before and After...
Go back to a previous daily sketchbook prompt and take a photo of the entire page.
Add to that page to make it more visually interesting and/or complete.
Take an after picture and stitch/combine the two images together so that I can see both at the same time.
Upload this to Canvas.

You can easily combine two images together by inserting them from the camera roll in procreate on the iPads and then exporting that image back to the camera roll to upload to canvas. I would strongly prefer for you to use the iPads for this purpose.

Daily Sketchbook 4/11

Draw an object floating.

How do we know it is floating? What about the context tells us this is the case.
Avoid the most obvious options such as a balloon in the air by itself.

Use any media you like but make it LOOK like you spent at least 13 solid minutes on the image.
