Head Anatomy 1, Week 2
Week of June 13
12h 22m of drawing
one day you write a song
the next day you write a poem
and then the third day you do a drawing
and none of it adds up to anything
all you're doing is laying a single brick of a million different
houses and expecting that one day it'll magically become a mansion
The past year I've tried learning how to make music, play guitar, do
game dev, skateboard, and render with blender -- but I didn't reach a
significant level with proficiency with any of these because I kept
switching between all of them.
Drawing is the first thing in a while that I believe I'll stick with
and get really good at.
I improved a ton over the past week. I started using a blending stick
towards the end, and the increase in shading fidelity helped me define
forms a lot better.
Cooked dinner and hung out with friends, but I still manage to squeeze
in some time to work through the Proko tutorial on the anatomy of
Started on the 100
I've previously read the advice of don't go to art
school (tl;dr 4-year undergrad programs often focus on the
conceptual rather than craft side of art, and they're very expensive),
but right before I went to bed I started researching a 1-year concept
art school in Singapore called FZD
I spent a lot of time this week collecting as many reviews and leaked
course materials as I could. All students have to sign an NDA so it was
surprisingly hard to find info. I think there's a 50% chance I travel to
Asia for the first time in my life to attend FZD.
I posted some of my notes on FZD here
I like how having a fixed challenge, in this case drawing 100 heads from
a list of references, removes the possibility of procrastination through
decision making. It's clear that the only productive thing to do right
now is put pencil to paper.
First time using a blending stick. I love how the two old men look.
Really happy with the shading of the two on the left
Got stuck at a party that I didn't want to be at, so it was nice to be
able to draw in the corner.
