charcoal, s’mores, and skeletons

18 Sep

just try think of three better reasons than charcoal, s’mores, and skeletons to love drawing class.

fire pit for making charcoal

we spend some time in class last week making our own charcoal.

we found some twigs, shaved the bark off, and  burned em up.

here is a website that explains the process. it was neat!

and obviously, we had to make s’mores.

the charcoal turned out super awesome, too. it is really great to use, it was very cheap (free!? yes, free.)

the charcoal also has a wide variety of shapes and sizes, which is really intriguing and exciting.

can’t wait to make use of it all.

hans: 2 hrs

and onto some actual artwork…

we are working on still life’s in class right now,

baade and i are both working on this guy. i figured i would post updates

of his progress whenever i spend a good chunk of time drawing.

his name is hans, “cause he has no hans!” ahahaha

best,
