Ball With Legs and Tail

Ball with legs and tail excercise. I didn't do as well as I'd hoped. I'm hoping to get some advice from Don in the future about what went wrong and how I can improve.
I'll post some figure drawings up soon. I had a lot of fun with negative space.

First Day!

I haven't been into a classroom with such a good atmosphere in a long time. It was nice. I am pleased to have met some of my classmates. I still haven't met a great deal of them but we'll have all year to be better aquainted with each other. I know a good amount missed the introduction at noon. I'm glad I got a seat next to Reetta, though I'll probably feel inferior at times since I love her stuff. I know I also met and spoke with lots of artists, but unfortunately I have a hard time remembering some of them since I'm bad with names. Don't be upset if I forget your name, just remind me and I'll get it.

The figure drawing class was awesome, but kind of intimidating. I've always kind of lacked when it came to figure drawing. I understand the proportions well enough but I have to relearn everything since I developed my own weird way of drawing (or not drawing) structure. I have to work on that more than anything, and get a more confident line in my sketchwork. Those are my big things to work on for now.

Just a simple sketch I did in my new sketchbook-I'd scan some figure drawing stuff but it's so big and hard to scan. This'll have to do. Also some new stuff in my devart as well. Been working on doing more digital painting/work on my tablet and trying to keep the transition from paper to tablet less awkward (because I've totally been neglecting paper lately). God am I excited about those Cintiqs in class. If there's one thing to turn an artist on, it's a Cintiq for sure.

Expect to see more sketches soon.
