Trompe l'oeil project

When viewed at the right angle it should look like her head is stretching out of the wall. It doesn't work quite as well as I would like.

Life Drawing project

The goal was to imitate another artist's style, background optional. In my case it was Leyendecker. Started as a 10min gesture in class.

2 point perspective

This is my cityscape project, loosely based on the city of Braavos from A Song of Ice and Fire series. I could work on it a bit more, upping contrast and grouping values but I had to turn it in as is. Graphite

Life drawing

Halfway through I somehow messed up my photoshop settings and making a stroke wouldn't do anything. Couldn't figure it out so I switched to painter. Remains unfinished.

I tried to do more wet-in-wet and overall mixing colors less muddy. I wish I had more time to finish.

Quick life drawing of my classmate Julie.
Some practice. Top one is from a photo, bottom are paintings.

Life drawing

2 hours. I got there late and couldn't find any chairs so I just stood up holding my laptop.

Updated fairy tale

For Expressive Drawing class. Needed to find a fairy tale/myth and "update" it. I chose Andromeda, with Perseus coming to save her.

Painted ground with acrylic. Black and white charcoal on top.
