The most recent session for Cafe Sketch, Rafael brought in his copy of Kirosawa's 7 Samurai. We focused on the compositions of each shot, something Kirosawa is renowned for. I got a lot of individual figures done in this class session, which I'm excited about.
Our final session at the Shadowbox was a dress rehearsal for their show "Holiday Hoopla." It was bittersweet, but the show was great. I ended up paying more attention to the stage than actually sketching, so there aren't as many figures as I would have hoped.
A lot of pages for this class! We focused on using charcoal and conte rather than just ball-point pen. I'm not used to media like this, so my sketches were really large.
Lines of Action depicting specific words and actions
I learned that I really like drawing deer and polar bears, but not that great at charcoal in general.
