|Sean's class - wk 8|
Animal Quicksketch in Nathan's class this week
I just started Sketchbook 31 - the paper is actually a bright salmon - but it scans to a very pleasing tan. I'm pleased.

Hey so I'm starting up a Environment Design class with Charles Lee and Him Lur at Kazone Art Academy. The first week we went over some basic art principles regarding light source. I was painting along while the teacher was demoing.

She did a b-boy freeze, bridge, and a bunch of yoga and kung-fu poses. SICK!
Here is the special treat!
Sean Cheetham's photo demo. I think it's good to note the work done before the actual painting. He said it took him a long time to take the photo and choose which one to paint. There was also a great deal of effort photoshopping the photo to get it to his liking. He printed out 4-5 different versions, some with photoshop filters, cropped a little bigger, and looked at them in rotation during his painting.
