Drawing of a parrot I did the other day. The park up the street from me, there are people outside that always have parrots. I think they are a bird adoption group, anyways, whenever I walk by and I have my camera, I photograph the birds. I like this photo in particular so I did a drawing of it.

Here is the 2nd long figure drawing from class. This was a total of 40 or so hours, I lost track at one point. 15 hours in class and the rest from a photo. One thing that I am really happy with in this drawing was that I thought more about my edges, not exactly what I saw on the model, but what could I do to manipulate the edges to create a stronger/more interesting drawing. Often times I am too accurate, where I will make something look how it is as I see it and not always think of the image as a whole and I felt like I got away from that a bit, I could have done it more so still. I am currently working on a long portrait study, where I am thinking about my edges more so, I am curious as to how it will turn out. Will post it when finished.

This maybe the first post I have ever done with out any artwork. PACT is a group of professionals trying to raise the standard of living for fantasy and sci-fi Illustrators. They have started a fundraiser to raise money to create a website and hire lawyers. I am not affiliated with them, but I believe in their cause and have donated, being that I work in this field as well and would like to continue to grow in it. Here is a link to their fundraiser, http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/pact-professional-artist-client-toolkit.
