The first publication of one's artwork is always a special occasion and I'm happy to feature Conor FitzGerald and his debut on the Academy's blog. Conor's been with us in the Teen Program making excellent progress. Here's a recent example of what he's been up to.
Conor's approach to this action oriented composition is solid in many respects. He's drawn the anatomy of the figure first then flushed out the clothing and design elements, used a counter twist in his pose, made effective use of overlaps and gave the drawing a feeling of motion by showing drag. A good job all around. Looking forward to more of Conor's art in the future.
