  1. Lifedrawing
    I have found myself a new lifedrawing group, and have attended the last two weeks. It’s a bit different from the class I was doing in the UK, as it’s not a class per se. There’s no teacher – you just turn up, draw for a bit, and go home. There’s a couple of disadvantages to that. Firstly, if you’re doing something wrong, you kinda have to work out what that is by yourself. There doesn’t seem to be *so* much exploration of alternative media – mostly people seem to be using pencil/charcoal and I think it could be easy to get into a rut where you turn up every week, do the same thing as last time, then leave again. I’m going to try and set different exercises for each class and I decided in the class this week (on Tuesday) that I’d try and concentrate on drawing heads and faces. Most of my efforts were pretty crap, but I’ll keep practicing.There’s a couple of advantages too, though. Firstly, it’s really really frigging cheap! $7 for 2.5 hours, plus a glass of wine (red) or oj. Also, I’m not locked into any sort of course so i can attend or not as I like. Everyone seems very nice too and there’s a good spread of people attending. The picture featured here was from my ‘Head and Faces’ class, but the head wasn’t really obvious from my spot so I went for the whole body instead.

    This group is my first foray into the ‘art community’ here in WA. I look forward to finding stuff out.

  2. Comics
    When I got my new computer, it came with a program called ‘Comic Life’, which allows you to make up comics from photos, etc, etc. Never did I think that I’d actually use it, so I’m glad I’ve had the opportunity to do so 🙂
  3. Book
    Oh, yeah. And Ben Peek’s new book Black Sheep is now out. I have plans to read it in about 2.3 books time…

    Very skilful use of Comic Life there. 🙂

    Thanks! I seriously thought I’d never use it.

    It’s actually not a bad program – and a very clever idea.

    Have you used it much? I have to say, I’ve never had the urge to turn my photos into comics.
    Until now…

    No, I haven’t – it hasn’t been available for Windows (I think the Windows version has gone into beta only very recently), so I’ve frankly been envious of my friends who have it.

    Ah ok – I thought you had a Mac allready
    (But I guess you want to upgrade?)

    I’ve been talking about getting a Mac for about a year now. I don’t think I’ll be able to get one for a while yet, though.

    You should see the latest thing that the people who made Comic Life (plasq) have come up with. I’ll put the video up on my LJ, gimme a couple of minutes.

    Sorry, just click here to see the video. I can’t work out how to embed it into LJ.

    Oh, okay – it’s a very cool sketch/photo program.

    you’re right – it’s very cool 🙂

    Yet another reason why I want to buy a Mac. *sigh*
    I did the math, and I don’t think I can get one till sometime next year, though.
