I thought I'd share this with our visitors to the Academy's blog. It's a class demonstration I drew on Saturday during the most recent session of the Teen Program.
The blue pencil sketch took a few minutes to complete and was intended as an example of some fundamentals I was attempting to underscore. Among them solid construction, building a good foundation for your composition, variations in line density, and tonal touch ups to help establish form. What makes this particular subject interesting is that the art of our teens influenced the final result of the demo stylistically.
