As you may remember I was very scared to take my Rendering class. The voices from the past in my head have been telling me I can not draw for so many years that the thought of taking a drawing class worried me. With each drawing I soon learned that I can draw and that I just need to keep drawing and learn and grow and find my own style.
These last two assignments were very challenging. For the first drawing we had to create a composite of a car and place it into a background and use the proper perspective and lighting for the environment. We also had to include the car logo. I'm not a big car person so I decided to do my father-in-laws classic pink Cadillac. Since they live in Vegas I picked that as my background. This drawing was a lesson in patiences. It's a large drawing, 11x17 inches, so the background took many, many hours to complete but in the end I was extremely happy with the result.
Our final project was to draw an object but change the texture of that object. We had to use 2-3 different textures. I found a great photo of a horse running and changed it's body into metal, it's joints into fabric and the hair into fire. The fire was very challenging, I still didn't quite get it but it's pretty close. I love how the metal and fabric turned out.
You might be wondering why I said 'for now' in my title. I'm seriously thinking about taking another drawing class in the fall just for fun. I really enjoy this class and want to learn more. It makes me wonder what other thinks that I'm afraid of will bring me joy if I faced them. Is there something you keep telling yourself you can not do? What's stopping you from trying?
