Gonna go through Sketchbook by sketch book and class lesson to lesson. First up: Facial feature and likeness studies from Master Copies, Photos, and (in the last one)plaster cast studies. The sketches in the first image are of the Actress from Orphan Black, Tatiana Maslany.These were done in graphite and white charcoal. The white is already fading a bit because I use a cheap fixative(hairspray) but, since these are for study, preserving them is not a big priority. I just don’t want them to smear on the adjacent page 

These have helped IMMENSELY!!! Especially drawing plaster cast studies from life and doing master copies. I highly recommend browsing through Wikiart.org and looking for ten to twenty artists to study and then chunk it down. Once you understand structure(research Loomis, Reilly Abstraction, and Asaro heads), it helps to look at each feature one by one before you put them all back together. Some of my favorites to study: Rockwell, Bouguereau, Alma-Tadema, Leyendecker, Adam Hughes(not pictured), and Drew Struzan(not pictured.) 

Only a few days left at bootcamp.

Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.

Part 4.

Take note: The moment people stopped reblogging and tweeting and writing news articles and calling attention to Ferguson, they brought back the armored cars. It is not over. They were waiting for the world to lose interest and knew it would.

Studying at Watts Atelier Bootcamp. So worth the time and money.
