I wish I had more artwork to post, but most of the stuff I’ve been doing is for figure drawing, and while that’s fun, it’s unfortunately less creative.
Frankly, I’ve been a little disappointed with my illustration class so far. The guy is brand new to teaching, and he’s a great artist, it’s just I get the feeling he’s trying too hard to be the cool teacher/friend that everyone likes. That’s kind of the persona that the head of the department has naturally, but I feel like the downside of that is that I DON’T GET FEEDBACK. I fully ascribe to the idea that you don’t get better from praise, you grow from critique.
If every joe out there gets a smile and a pat on the back, how am I supposed to tell if my piece was any freaking good??
