negativity in negative shapes

thats what is going on in my life right now. ill be honest.. i didnt feel as mentally prepared this semester as i normally do, but i think im slowly getting back into the swing of things. im really glad it is forcing me to focus on my art... i love drawing. 

so, as it turns out, i only have one studio class that actually requires drawings/sketching. i totally lucked out! that being said, im attempting to update my blog with current projects 'n stuff im working on! in my figure drawing class we are currently focusing on negative shapes, or "what you don't see." i must say, its not as easy as i thought it would be. he also only let us use black prismacolor... which if you dont know, you cant erase it! augh. so.. the first sketch was done from a live model, while the other 4 were from photographs. hope you enjoy this simple post! :D

 from our model in class today 

her torso is a little elongated, but you get the idea

ive been listening to a lot of Rilo Kiley, which i guess is a reflection of my mood recently. good thing we are working on negative shapes for my negative attitude... get it? heh.. well, hopefully i can get some angry/bitter looking artwork pumped out! (i try to make the most of everything haha)

anyways, thanks for stopping by! and have the best day ever.
