Class Portfolio 1

This is the first portfolio I turned in for ANI 55.  I'm ok with these drawings, but I intend to improve a TON from this by the end of the semester!

This weekend I went on a wonderful and emotional retreat at the beach with some very good friends from San Jose Christian Assembly.  The theme was "Shine," and Pastor Ernie came from New York to speak with us about how everybody can shine.  He is a fantastic speaker and had excellent, captivating sermons.  I'm still learning a lot and don't understand nearly enough about the Bible, but I am so glad to be part of a group that supports each other, and has so much fun together.  And, anyone who has patience for me and my terrible puns is always great.

We stayed in a gorgeous beach house:
Basement (pool, pool table, etc.)
What I thought was the coolest part: the hole in
the 3rd floor for the 2nd floor laundry room!
Our beach house
There were beautiful landscapes and colors:

I brought my sketchbook and really tried to work on perspective:

The beach houses were great inspiration for this.

A castle-house!

Here are more of the drawings I did:


I plan to clean these up and color them later on Photoshop.

Sketchbook 1/28-2/15

I love drawing people.  So, I drew a lot of people.  I need to work on perspective quite a bit, however.  My clumsy attempts at it are below--I hope to see and share any prospective perspective improvement with you all.  Also, sorry if I drew you.
