well sadly all vacations must come to an end... i miss my family like crazy :/. here is some sketches i did in my free time while i was there. i really pushed to sketch from life as much as i could wherever i was, because i have been avoiding sketching from life ever since starting to draw( but the only way to get better is to work out of your comfort zone) so this trip i focused on sketching from life and making a picture from the environment i was in to the best of my ability. I also begin using pen so that i think about the lines I'm about to make and make sure I'm certain of it b4 i make a decision (was advised by many people to do this when sketching). So i am posting every sketch i did regardless of how it turned out. i also was able to do some digital composition and value studies while we would watch movies or not much was going on. lot of sketches came from the homes i stayed / visited. Things are getting back to normal and my second semester at TAD is about to start up again in august so i am very excited for that. for now i will take it easy and sketch and still continue doing value and comp studies. some were from shorpy.com and some from Craig Thompson's "Carnet De Voyage" ( a book Francis lent me to borrow). its a book of his travels while he was in Europe and he sketched everywhere he go. this is something i wish to achieve as an artist. i want to be able to record what i was doing and where i was visually and do it well.
anyways thank you for stopping by do look forward to more work as the semester begins to start up again.
