Inspiring Artists and Free Sketch

This week we had a free sketch. 

Jeff Smith came to CCAD this week as well 
and talked about his art and comics. 

We also talked about artists that inspire us
 what we liked about their art, including...

Animal Gestures!

This week we focused on drawing animals!  
Jinny brought in a wide range of reference materials:

We started by looking over a handout she made for us.  
The goal of the session was to capture the pose of the animal, 
focusing on larger shapes and working in.  Jinny put together a
 timed powerpoint for us to draw from. 

She also recommended "The Art of Animal Drawing" by Ken Hultgren, 
which goes into the skeletal structure of many animals.


-See you next week!-

Welcome Back! First Meeting

This Friday we held out first meeting for the Fall semester.
It was a free sketch, chat-with-your-friends event, and it was fun!

Our next two meetings will be human gesture drawing, and then animals.
We hope to see you there, at 6pm in the Sandbox.

Here are some of the sketches our members made during the meeting:

Until next time.
