This gal was modeling at a small Comic Convention a few years back. She was much prettier than I drew her. My teacher at the time organized a space on the convention floor where we could all draw the models. It was an effort to get some students into the school. I don’t know if anyone joined, but I suspect that most who wandered by didn’t know what they were looking at or missing.
The drawing was done as a 20 minute pose after warm-ups. It’s a little weird to draw with that many people looking over your shoulder and shuffling past.
I teach drawing and painting now myself, but from the comfort of my own home. Technology has made it possible that you can learn(and teach) at your convenience. I record videos of critiques and demos then upload them to the school server.
However, this places more responsibility on students. The onus is on them to practice and get better. Actually that has always been the way, the good ones know it.
Currently, I wish I had more students. That’s been the big drawback to the teaching, the numbers. Also, I’m not a ‘name’ artist. So students who end up in my class likely wound up there by luck rather than seeking me out.
Here’s my material list:
Since the image map got rejected, I’m going to try with this nested table of social media icons. Let’s see if this works.
I wonder if I need to upload from the Elegance.blue website for this to work. I may do that for the one. But the convenience of uploading from my own server is unbeatable.
