I'll have better luck next time with the amount of sketches.

This week most of our class managed to go to Polaris to draw people on their individual shopping missions. I felt like I didn't get much this session due to finding a good spot to sketch. Also, there didn't seem to be much individuality between people walking around (except for a few) unless the were in a store shopping. What I found more entertaining were the children. Lots of kids that were there had a variety of steps and expressions. For example, there was screen AD near the Apple store, where I set up base, and there were two children in coats bouncing around it and swinging their arms around. It was cute and hilarious and I believe I managed to capture one of them in these sketches.

Last weeks assignment we had to come up with a vampire character we had to design and pose. As a result of watching a lot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer I ended up doing a twist on it by making a Supernatural Vampire Slayer. I mean it's still close to a vampire... right?
I feel like I had success on 2/3 poses. Most of them I got just watching Buffy kick ass (and a lot of rewind freeze frames).
On a final note I need to learn how to scan my work better. I was never really taught how to make adjustments on scans so they just end up looking messy and unprofessional.

Here are copies from master paintings on studying the dynamic figures in them. I will update this post soon with images of the paintings themselves soon. I had classes all day and couldn't get to a scanner in time to post them. So these are pretty crappy scans.
*EDIT* I added the original paintings I drew from.

Here is where I will be posting my sketches weekly from my Cafe Sketch drawing class. Right now I feel my observational work is incredibly rusty. I haven't had a real drawing class in a while and it shows. Hopefully that changes soon once I get myself into the swing of things.
