Today I experimented with going a little abstract and using pastels. I have used pastels in the pasts, but not in life drawing. The results were much better than expected. I even experimented with using a Sharpie with the pastels.  Gonna do a bigger mix later.  - DM


Today I adjusted my style by putting in the highlights first, and then adding shadow.  It helped stupendously. - HL

Today I played with complementary colors to define shadows and highlights, and not just on white paper, but black paper.  I used this to define muscles and build a story around the model. - JM

Today was a very big addition to my set of skills in which I fully took advantage of. Different colors set the mood for my drawings and really gave the figure depth in a way I couldn't achieve before using only black and white.  I will continue to work with color media to better improve my ability to capture a correct human figure.  - JT

I feel amazing after tonight's class.  I've really grasped shading contours and even picked up more skills in perspective.  Thank God.  I was beginning to get frustrated that I wouldn't get better, ha ha.  - AA
