One of the courses I've been taking recently is through Rise Design & Shine. If you haven't heard of them, when you have some time, do check them out. It's run quite well and I've really gained a lot through the experience. I believe the next workshop runs in the Fall so if you are interested be sure to sign up to be notified of enrollment through their website.
Each week I receive a new brief on a different topic. It is has been soooo much fun!
This week is people. Honestly I didn't know how I'd manage it as I haven't done faces in a very long time. Fortunately it is working out! Yay!
No matter what the topic, I just love to pull out my Sharpies and a fresh sketch pad. I've tried quite a few markers and for me personally, nothing really comes close to the end result that I'm able to achieve with a Sharpie. My doodles come out crisp and clean, all ready to scan. This really helps when I need to take my drawings into Illustrator to work on them further.
(Just for fun and my own personal enjoyment)I'm also addicted to Prisma filters! There are so many options to choose from, making the possibilities endless!
We still have a couple weeks left but so far my favorite brief has been abstracts(florals are a close second!). I wouldn't say it was easy to construct but I sure loved the outcome.
How about yourself? Are you an artist? Do you like to create? Even if you enjoy just collecting art, do you have a favorite subject you enjoy the most?
