Re: Basic 101: Pre-Class Assignments and FAQs

Hi everyone,

I'm very excited to find this class. While I would like to get better at drawing figures and living things, I'm also interested in drawing everything else too. I took a drawing class many years ago as an elective in college, but haven't really done much with it since then.

For my pre-class drawing, I chose to do a still life of the plastic Vault Boy bobblehead that came with the Fallout 3 collector's edition. (Fallout 3 is a computer/video game.)

I'll have to post the image in another post due to my need to make 2 posts or more.

Re: Basic 101: Pre-Class Assignments and FAQs

Hi! I've been lurking for over a year. Taking oil painting at various places. Trying to skip the basics and get on to the good stuff. So while I am not giving the other up...I am here to learn to draw. Taking a human form drawing class locally and going to do the basics...All of it! With you guys. Still not too familiar with how it all works posting and all (I have an iPad that can hopefully do it all???). I've begun lesson one. Bought the book. I'll post my stuff soon. Excited to find a community to work at my pace but still have feedback. So, thank you for doing this.

Re: Basic 101: Pre-Class Assignments and FAQs

Jill - Thank you for posting the pre-class drawing. That was what I was missing . One remark though, the size of the picture is far too small. Ok for this thread, but I cannot possibly comment on your assignments in this size. You may go up to 800 px square, but the advised maxima are 800 for width, 600 for height.

Re: Basic 101: Pre-Class Assignments and FAQs

Hello! I'm excited to be here. I have some art background, but most of my classes at university were of the self-expression variety rather than the skill-building variety, and I would rather like to build some skills with which to express myself!

I really enjoy drawing people and that is where the majority of my practice to date has been placed. Now I'd like to draw people in different settings, which means being able to draw the settings as well as the people.

I struggle the most with architecture and perspective, as you can see from the bizarrely crooked window in my pre-class drawing. (Reference was this image from the reference library.)

demitas - Welcome to the classroom . I'm sure you will master perspective soon. We have even an advanced class on perspective in the 102 series .
Please move on to class 1.

Re: Basic 101: Pre-Class Assignments and FAQs

Hi all,

So I'm peeking at everyone's pre-drawing assignment and mine just seems to utterly fail in comparison. I have to start somewhere though, so guess I'll be brave and upload my pic on here. I'd rather bite the bullet and progress, then forever be a lurker and NEVER progress.

Re: Basic 101: Pre-Class Assignments and FAQs

Ok so here is my pre-class assignment. The original intention was to draw something that totally intimidates you, right? Meet my intimidation, I love this pic, and man was it hard to even ATTEMPT to draw. If you like me you'll ignore my feeble attempts at ever trying to recreate realistic facial impressions. That's probably my biggest problem. Then again....

Anyway, its here and now I can move on.....

Red face Re: Basic 101: Pre-Class Assignments and FAQs

Hi, I'm Gina and I've been drawing, or attempting to draw, on and off since I was a teenager. I've included my Pre-Class Drawing (the house, which is supposed to look like this reference photo http://www.wetcanvas.com/RefLib/showphoto.php?photo=40021

As you can see, I really need help! I also included an unfinished drawing I did some years ago of a statue. I do have the How To Draw What You See book but I have not done any of the lessons out of it yet.
