Life Drawing - Harvey

Our life model didn't show up to class today, so my tutor Harvey had to pose for us instead. So no naked people on my blog this week, sorry, but here is Harvey looking tired and Harvey ala Picasso. I had a lot of fun making the second image! I bought these great new coloured pencils recently and I love them, they are so smooth to draw with.

Week Four - Acoustic Ranching Editorial

I read an article called "How do you train a fish?" about possible solutions to the ecologically unfriendly fish farming methods in use at the moment. You can read it here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/8283701.stm

Its basically about how you can train sea bass to respond to a frequency played in the water to make them swim to a certain point. I thought the robotic shark bit was pretty interesting too.

Psychedelic Colin (Life Drawing)

We had life drawing today, so I took my coloured pencils along and had some fun. The first image was four 10 minute drawings, and the second was 55 mins. Colin has a quizzical eyebrow and I think he looks like a pirate.
