Alright, so this is more or less the key thing we're doing at Uni right now. Every Monday we get a list of artists that we have to research, and then do a journal page about. Basically we're supposed to include some info about each artist and then draw one of their artworks, or something in their style or something along those lines, and this is my journal so far. I decided to include everything I got up to this point, the good the bad and the ugly. Some of these I am proud of, some I seriously never want to speak of again, and most are somewhere in between. These journal pages are my acquaintance with traditional media though, so even though right now I got a long way to go, I am confident that, in time, I'll get a better grasp of it.
I am far too lazy to list the tools used for each individual image, but my repertoire goes something like this: pencils, colored pencils, pastels, chalk, conte, acrylics, a whole lot of watercolor, and a little guache.
ALSO, since the original size of this image is of somewhat gargantuan proportions, I decided to make the real size download only. Don't want to crash any browsers or nothing. For those of you with slower bandwidth however, I also have this journal update split up into three parts (they're still pretty big though), which you can access
