Rosco has commandeered the armchair to sleep close to the wood stove.
I came down with a 24 hour stomach flu Monday night which laid me low for closer to 36 hours. Slept through last night’s drawing time.
So happy to find a single daffodil in bloom on our morning walk today. Spring is just around the corner.
Self portrait, walking with my dog.
Self portrait with Rosco, my miniature schnauzer and walking companion.
Rosco, my miniature schnauzer, is my best model, and when nothing else in the day sparks my interest for a sketch, he is always willing.
Our dog, Rosco, is most attentive in the kitchen, hoping for samples of what we’ve put on the table.
In the middle of the day when I hear my dog raving, it is usually because the neighbor’s cat is taunting him from the other side of the glass doors. He barks until breathless, and then watches with great focus.
Unit 4 Assignment
To turn in two illustrations. One based on criteria outlined in the lesson, where they can use their own characters and one colored drawing using all three characters.
Featuring Rosco, his friend, Crow and Cat.
I think I probably blew the collaboration part on this portion of the assignment. In using the characters that I created, I left out the motorcycle and driver. My initial thought was that Rosco would chase Cat wildly, all over the road and risk getting hit by a car, so the cross walk guard is trying to stop him. I brought the cross walk guard forward because it worked better in the composition to have her in the foreground.
Assignments based on perspective, using developed characters.
