Week 24 - Focus on Originals

The previous weeks studies I spent much more time copying than doing originals. As a result of always trying to apply new techniques and styles to my originals I feel like they become stiff. In an effort to correct this, this week I devoted to originals. Besides a half hour of gesture to warm up, this weeks exercises were all originals. This was a good measuring stick for my progress. I am surprised to say, I have improved more than I realized before doing this weeks exercises.

Weeks 20, 21, 22 - Clothes and Fold

Weeks 20, 21, and 21 are from the chapter 9 of the Famous Artist Cartoon Course. When I started, I didn't know it would take 3 weeks. It is a very in depth chapter. It is an excellent lesson, in the way it shows how folds work, then shows where they usually appear on clothing. After the first week of studies, I began to notice the rules on every bodies shirts, pants and jackets in day to day life. Week 20 was how folds fall in general, week 21 was how folds fall on the male figure, week 22 was how folds fall on the female figure.
