Insects studies 1

Hi guys! 
This is my first entry for the group, so I'll add a few notes. First, this has been incredibly hard for me! I really don't know how you can reach that amazing level in such a short time! 
I think that the silver one took me much more that 40 minutes. The second took me exactly 40 min and with the third I tried to stay in the 20 minutes. It has been very interesting for me to try with a fixed time. 
I hope I'll improve next time!:)

New Assignment: Creature development!

Hey guys,

sorry I didn't post this sooner, but it's good for you to get used to tighter deadlines anyway haha

so you guys are doing great on portraits, but now we are going to switch to creatures for something new!

We are going to start easy for now- the emphasis of this first task is to learn about forms, textures and anatomy of existing creatures!

so, your assignment is to the following sketches:

-3 mammals

-3 reptiles

-3 insects

go on google, find some nice pictures of interesting animals ( try to find some unusual creatures! not the typical cat or dog or something -surprise us!) then just do a study of the image- it can be a 20-40 minute study- it does not have to be super polished.

Post these on friday so we can talk about your works then!

good luck!
