I've got some good news: My landscape from my previous post got into the Society of Illustrators Student Competition! I found out on Valentine's Day, and the previous few weeks had been pretty terrible for one reason or another (illness, money, frustration with progress, etc--the stuff we all struggle with, right?), so this news really buoyed me up. I feel humbled to be included among so much talent. 7 other BYU students got in, including my good friends Liz, Colt, Melissa, Brittany, and Josh! Check out Society's winner page for our school here.
On another note, I'm taking Bob Barrett's Life Drawing class this semester. I had been very frustrated with my progress for some time, but I feel like I've made a breakthrough over the past few weeks. Here are a few drawings I'm pretty happy with so far.
