Some Art #9 and November 4

The person-I-know-and-decided-to-draw today is one of my classmates, Kendal (with the glasses).

Tonight, I decided to go to a sex talk seminar because my teacher said to do so for extra credit. Turns out it was fun! Especially when someone asks about fisting and if there should be such a thing as "consent"...I don't understand, either. But hey, that's college for ya.

November 1, 2, 3

My first personal project, and already I start it late...So here are my three people for the three first days. The three smaller drawings of people equal one big drawing of a person. My logic makes so much sense!

Some Art #8

The corner of Main St. and Harrison St. nearby the wonderful Piccola's...mmm.

In-progress drawing of the VCU library. Needs more random people.

Yes, I do think it's fun to draw my grocery list...especially since I always use the same list, so why not? And me with the normal faces I make. And a chibi dinner with Corey, Tin and Ameenah!

Some warm-ups in Concept Drawing class. The objective was to draw my favorite shoe, bike, and family car (all from my past). This includes a Barbie was my pride and joy. You'll see this page again because I'll be adding more to it.

Next Project

Now that November's around the corner, I've decided to take up my own project. It's more to improve/entertain myself. Every day of the month, I'll draw someone I see around Richmond, whether I know the person or not. I'll most likely use inks, but I'm undecided about coloring with watercolors or on Photoshop (that would be more simplified). It'll be the first time I've done an ongoing project like this, but I can't wait to see how I progress.

Some Art #7

Some Art #6

Did some different art today. It's something loosely based off a meme I found via DeviantArt. I illustrated myself at the ages of 5, 13 and 20 (my current age).

Here's me at five years old. I was definitely a weird one; I preferred playing alone, getting lost in the woods nearby my old home. My head was a big poof of hair, and I had a speech problem. This was the age when I finally spoke, but not clearly (I had some symptoms of autism). Oh, and I loved everything about the Power Rangers.

Me at thirteen years old. Probably my most awkward age, especially physically. Little boobs, messy hair, always wanting to wear Abercrombie & Fitch (to fit in with everyone), and showing off my belly (a lot of girls at my middle school started doing it). It didn't help having braces, that's for sure. The one thing I had going for me was playing basketball (once I got to high school, I immediately got on the varsity team). At the time, I thought basketball was going to be my future. Interesting how things turn out.

Finally! I'm normal-looking now. Now that I've found my comfort with being in art school, it shows through the way I dress (I stick to what's most comfortable for me). I'm more conscious of the way I look and what lies ahead beyond school. We'll see how that goes.
