Even as a sketch, the teachers work is so professional, well constructed, and gorgeous that it makes very obvious how far I still have to go. Suppose that means it’s about time to start working on the next homework assignment…

This month has been being a little crazy. I got my homework in (as posted right below this). And I just have four more pages done to finish the current projects I've been working on for the Hatman and Indigo issues. Sweet! (yes that image to your left is a secret sneak peak).
I also wanted to discuss my feeling so far on the correspondent course, since my first reaction were- well, first reactions. Initially I thought that the correspondent course was geared towards any age. Any level would learn from doing this course, but the homework assignment was hard work. I think the book threw me off a little, because it is not the kind of “text book” I was expecting. It is not about drawing in general, it is practice, assignments and tips on penciling (which I guess makes sense, it is a penciling course).
The first assignment definitely pointed out what my strengths and weaknesses are. I can't believe that in 4 years of art school I never had to draw a horse (and in retrospect on the assignment I think my cowboy is too big in comparison to that horse).
Aw, well. I'm excited to get my homework back, and to start on the next assignment.
