Shape drawings

This was an excersise we did in school for a character design class.  First you would draw some random shape with nothing really in mind, just let the pencil flow.  Then you take a look at the shape, you turn it around, swuint your eyes at it, until you saw somehting in the shape, and then you draw.  It's a great excersise in creativity, in finding new shapes to play with and new approaches to subjects that might be getting a bit stagnant.  I was feeling the ned to stretch myself and so I did these.  I put up the shapes first and then the drawing I did based on that shape.  Enjoy.

Painting Practice

I was teaching an art lesson yesterday and we were just having some fun painting.  This is what I came up with in the 45 minutes we had.  I was pretty happy with it.  Working on cardboard turned out to be alot of fun.  I may have to do some more art on it.  Enjoy.
