These are a selection of gestures from today's Drawing From The Tablet class. We were given 30 seconds to describe each pose. Still working on varying my line quality and remaining loose- I think I remained nice and relaxed for this round but was pretty heavy-handed, so the line quality isn't as good as this post's.
In other news, the blog will be getting a much-needed revamp as soon as I can squeeze in the time.

For Illustration II we were asked to create a drink label in acrylics. Been a long time since I painted with them so it didn't exactly end up how I had planned... I'm not a fan of how the flames turned out.... Anyway, I ended up choosing Sobe's "Energy" drink, and went with a phoenix motif since they tend to go for a mythological-Aztec vibe with their bottles. We were allowed to tinker with it digitally, so I fooled around with hue/saturation.

For Narrative Illustration, I had to design a wraparound CD single cover for the artist/song of my choice. I ended up choosing Regina Spektor's "Hotel Song". The beginning of the refrain is " I have dreams of orca whales and owls", which inspired the piece. Was really an experiment in line weight and value, was initially going to do the linework in pen but ended up going digital. There's some hiccups but I'm think I'm content with it.... for now at least!

Some more gestures from this week's Drawing From The Tablet... my aim in the game was to try and loosen up for once and vary my line quality. I'm far too tight in the wrist when gesturing (and drawing in general, actually...) but I think I made a huge jump when compared to this post.
