Hands and feet life drawing

My lecturers feedback to me the other day was to loosen up, so from here on out i plan on making an attempt at drawing a lot more freely. These aren’t exactly my best work but its a start of a new era… sort of.

Heres a few pieces from last night procrastination and todays life drawing class where we focused on hands and feet. im still trying to loosen up my lines so i kept most of these around the 2 minute mark. really loose sketching is slowly building my confidence with exaggeration, but lots of practice is still needed!!!

Student designer work

So ive been working for my Students Union as a student designer for a couple weeks now and ive been lucky enough to complete a few projects and given permission to upload them online, heres 2 of my more recent pieces. Im loving the work so far as ive got pretty much complete creative freedom with what i design, its a bit daunting as i dont really know what im doing but hey, its all a learning curve :) 

Something ive brought to the table is re-working the students union's logo into what ever i design. they were a little cautious when i first suggested it as they were worried whether it would look ok and work with the piece, but so far its all been positive feedback. i took it to an extreme and re drew the logo completely in the scroll design making it a stamp, but they were really enthusiastic for me to do that so i'll try to take a few more risks and hope they work out.

Preparation for CalArts: back to life drawing class

Finally back on to a life drawing class, its mainly specialising in anatomy however ive been given complete freedom to either tag along with the class or do my own thing ready for my CalArts submission. I’ve been questioning whether or not to apply this year due to the crazy amount of work ive got going on, but my lecturer being awesome as always is kicking my ass in the right direction to apply. Heres some sketches from the past couple of weeks classes, mainly focusing on upper torso and portraits for now, but soon i’ll start working on a lot more full body gestures.

First digital illustration

figured i'd give painting my own environment a go for once. Im trying to slowly start producing my own portfolio of visual development work, need a lot more practice but everyone starts somewhere. 

I figured i'd start with something simple, not much story, just seeing how my painting skills work with my own concept.
