I've been going to Life Drawing about 4 to 5 times a week to really practice and get great. The first weeks have been tough with assignments (which was what I expected and actually wanted), I work better under pressure.
The first few weeks I wasted an amazing amount of time going downtown to get a check from work like 3 to 4 hours, and the first time I went it was closed! The agency is open from Tuesday to Thursday from 12:00pm to 5:00pm, but on a random day (which had to be the only day I could go) it was closed! As I read the scribbled note on the agency door, I was quite angered because I would have to come the next day and make time to get the check so total of 6 to 7 hours wasted in the week. Not totally wasted because I had done some sketching of very interesting people on the subway and bus, as well as some observing and imitating for acting class (which I enjoy very much).
My management skills have improved and I am thinking ahead, the experience of first year has tremendously helped out. I see how important it was to go through that year though.
Anyways here are couple life drawings I thought were alright, I WILL post better ones!
