I had several days off work last week and went on a short trip to the beautiful town of Innsbruck (Western Austria) with my family. We had a really good time! :)
But both my trip and work left me little time for elaborate drawing lately. At least I finally managed to do the second Lab from Carla Sonheim's Drawing Lab. I'm doing this together with other people in a group and actually, we should all be working on Lab number four already.^^' But from what I saw I'm not the only one who's a little behind. I'll just try to catch up these days! Lab four and five are about drawing animals at the zoo - something I've already done several times anway. Maybe I'll have time to go again at the weekend. :)
Anyhow, here are my scans from Lab 2 - "Blind Contour Giraffes". I love blind contour drawings, they are just sooo funny! I know you're supposed to do them slowly and focused (and then they aren't even looking bad), but sometimes it's just so much fun to do them quickly and then burst out in a fit of laughter when looking at your results. xD Can you guess which were the quick ones? Haha...
After a while I had enough of giraffes and tried some bears, too. I like the one on the lower right. :D
Well, on to the next labs! I have to admit that this book really challenges me. :D I can be really stubborn, impatient and inhibited when drawing and all these tasks hit my weak spots and makes me try a lot of new things.
But I guess I'll be a lot better afterwards. :)
