Gesture Drawing Class (Weeks 4 and 5)

Hope everyone is doing well out there!  Below are my results from Weeks 4 and 5 of Mark McDonnell's gesture drawing class at the Animation Guild in Burbank.  Mark has been encouraging us to push our drawings more (using basic principles of design, shape, value, composition, silhouettes, etc.)...and to have more fun overall.

One small way to help...

**UPDATE (3/14/11):  I'm very happy to share that both pieces have been sold as of today – and as mentioned below, all proceeds ($150) are being donated to the American Red Cross - Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami disaster relief funds. Many thanks for everyone's support and inquiries – and of course, thank you to the individuals who bought these pieces in an effort to make a difference. Cheers :)
The two pieces below (recently done for the "Characters!" show) have been repriced at $75 each – and 100% of the sales will be donated to the American Red Cross and those affected by the Japan earthquake and Pacific tsunami:

Price includes shipping where applicable. These are framed 5"x7" originals done in pencil & watercolor.
If interested, please email me at the address below, and I'll respond in the order received.

Thanks for considering...this is just one small way to help out.
You can also donate to the relief efforts here:

Hearts and warm thoughts to everyone affected by this tragic event.

Gesture Drawing Class (Weeks 1/2/3)

My friend & fellow artist Kendra Melton highly recommended a gesture drawing class taught by Mark McDonnell at the Animation Guild in that's what I'm taking now :)

Below are my class results from the past 3 weeks.  Sorry for the poor quality on some of the images...I'm drawing on a large pad that won't fit on my scanner, so I'm resorting to taking quick camera shots.

Loving this class so far & learning a ton :)  I'll try to post results from each week.  Thanks for visiting!
