As promised, my work from Illustration 2 (watercolor) and Clothed Figure 3! Enjoy.

These are my first watercolor paintings since I was like 12. Watercolor can be tricky, but you sort of get hang of it soon. Anyways, our first homework was just daylight vs. indoor light, nothing crazy.

An in-class assignment. We went to the prop room and picked out our object of choice (mine being this old, old camera bag), then we were supposed to paint it, with emphasis on textures. As you can see there's bunch of textures there, but mostly its just a jumbled mess. Looks alright from far away though, haha.

Another in-class assignment. Our next assignment will be a portrait, so we were supposed to practice painting a head. I painted this out of my head. My generic male head, heh.

Alright! Our first watercolor illustration! The assignment was to create a design for a shopping bag for a store. I didn't know which store to do, so I did this for my friends store, Krakk, on Skólavörðustíg back home. It's a store that sells designs by independent artists/designers. Really cool. ( I might be designing something for them in the future).

Alright, here are bunch of my clothed figure drawings from the first few weeks, organized by pose duration:

5 minute drawings

10 minute drawings

15 minute drawings

That's all for now!
