My Drawing

My Drawing - student project

     As someone with zero artistic ability what so ever, I must say this class was a blast to take. I saw that my sister-in-law uploaded this class and I thought I would give it a shot, and I think I might have found a new hobby. Following her step by step directions was so simple and easy to follow. The class flew by before I knew it. I only wish I would have paid a little more attention to the proportions video. I am also looking forward to printing out the class work sheets and sitting down and practicing each feature. Before this class I had never attempted a portrait in my life, so I was pretty excited with the finished product even though there is a lot of things to work on. Surprising Gabs was actually my favorite part about doing this because her reaction was genuinely excited and encouraging. She even took the time to take my picture and upload it in Photoshop to show just how important proportions are! (see 2nd photo) It really allowed me to see my potential if I practice more. Seeing her line everything up and make some changes to the eyes showed me what practice can do and made me eager to continue and draw more. I am looking forward to taking more classes and growing my artistic abilities!
