Heads!!

The following were done in Zhaoming's HH class and serve to illustrate the life/struggles of an artist. First you did a decent drawing and you thought you're going to rock your way to the top.

Then, you DETERIORATE!! (Freaking drawing paper!! But that's no excuse... Zhaoming draws on Color and Design bristol vellum!) You can do even less when given more time.

And you continue to deteriorate as you learn more, and deteriorate, deteriorate...

until you feel that you're grabbing onto something...

Then... pop in the hands too...

Oh my, the magic of Zhaoming's class!!!

And these are some digital head paintings of friends that I did a while back. They fit the theme of heads.
