For my Creative Processes class, I have to take an existing painting by an artist I admire and recreate it "with elements of my own life". I decided to use Bierstadt's, "The Domes of Yosemite", and for the elements of my life, I'm going to show my artistic progression, from photography to 3D to painting in Photoshop to finally drawing in pencil (yes, I'm moving backwards, sue me!)
Here's the first draft, minus the photoshop painting, which I will try to do Saturday and Sunday. The final piece is due at the printer @ 2:00pm on Monday, where I will make a 2'x3' print on photo matte paper.
My friend Jimmy started up a character challenge, "Lionfish Knight", and I played around with it tonight....nothing complex, nothing complete, just two ideas, one a cyberknight and the other more traditional.
Had my initial orientation for Emily Carr today, but managed to get a bit of drawing done this evening....poses weren't really that successful this time, but I did lightbox the warrior woman onto bristol board, and began some very basic pencil rendering.
