Not much done on this, but there's some sketchy stuff and a partial first layer of paint. Who knows when I'll get around to working on it more, and I don't want to forget about posting these or lose them, so here they are.

Of course, yesterday continued along the way this week has been going, so I ended up an hour late to studio after sleeping through my alarm and missing work. I'd like to think I'd have found more of this picture if I'd had that extra hour.

Still looking for that balance between accuracy and expression.

The promised disaster from yesterday's art class. I was already frustrated and emotional, and that carried over into studio time.
Points made by my art professor I'd do well to remember:
  • My job is not accuracy, but believability, emotion, and movement.
  • The struggle is an important part of the process.
  • Sometimes you have to go outside and jump up and down and scream. "Sometimes it takes that much."
I did, after trying for the better part of 2 hours to ignore my frustration and keep trying, end up leaving the room for 10 minutes and having a quiet crying spell in the bathroom.  Unsurprisingly, when I went back to work, everything fell into place.
