Here's a snapshot of some of the skills I picked up this first quarter at Angel Academy.
Learning how to construct the human anatomy using the comparative technique.
Let's throw in a sitting pose and a chair to make things a little more complex.
A focus on shadow shapes.
The introduction of Big Form Modelling.
... and taking an image to as best a render as possible.
It's amazing what I've picked up in 10 weeks! And this is a reminder to me that given any situation, I'd rather be taught then be self-taught. Actually, I don't believe in this term, "self-taught". Be it in music, business, sports, etc, if one seeks knowledge from either Youtube, Google, or even by casually asking a friend for tips and advice, isn't the internet already one's teacher? And if one claims to be self-taught, chances are that person i not diving deep enough into the subject. Food for thought.
Looking forward to the coming summer!!!
