Arrow Sketchbook Thread of Annemee

Here are a few drawings from my Life Drawing class. All are done in traditional pencil media. What do you think?

Annemee,

Wow! For whatever reason, I forgot to reply to this thread, but I did see it. Great work here, I am really impressed! Can you tell us a bit about your bkgrd and training?

Definitely post more of your work!

By the way, I just posted this in the the Announcements thread. Basically, in order to keep things streamlined, I'd like to have people name their personal threads according to the same naming convention. As such, might I have permission to change the name of your thread to:

Anatomy Thread of Annemee
? Thank you,

~Rebeccak

Thank you for your comments Right now I am taking classes at Art Institute Online. These are from my recent Life Drawing class. I have some other things I have been working on, but have just been too lazy to resize and post them up

Please feel free to change the name on my thread.

Here are some more from that life drawing class:

Annemee,

No problem! Sorry I didn't get to your stuff sooner...but I am thrilled that you will be keeping something of an art journal here, it will be really fun to see your progress as you move through your course!

Your work here is very impressive, and it will be cool to see where your course takes you! Thanks for posting here!

I have to admit to being really curious as to how things are run through your online course ~ when you do life drawings online, is there a tutorial given with photos provided, then instructor feedback? Since I am trying to do something similar here on the Forum with the Open Figure Drawing Workshops, and as well with my upcoming CGWorkshop, I admit it would be really interesting to know.

Links to the Open Figure Drawing Workshops (OFDWs), by the way, can be found here:

Tutorials, Workshops, Anatomy Reviews & More ... [links within]
(see post #3)

I hope you will join us sometime when you get a break from your other studies!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Thanks again My class has been over for a while, but here is a -sorta- brief summary:

The classes are very different than land based schools...mainly in the personal time and dedication needed. Each course is 5.5 weeks, and participation is required 5 of 7 days. By participation I mean, attendance and meaningful contributions to the discussion threads for the week (either on lecture content, or critique of works by other students). While each class is different, the life drawing class goes something like this:

Lecture is to be read in the beginning of the week, and is presented online. Along with lecture, there is alot of reading from the selected text books. Then discussion threads are started based on the theory presented. Lots of assignments!!! Timed practice sessions and detailed anatomy drawings mostly. These are all "on your own" meaning, you do them, scan or digitally photograph, then post to the appropriate thread. There is little direction givin by the teacher. Other students comment etc. The "teacher" is really more of a facilitator, and doesnt really do a whole lot of teaching. More just offering guided critiques of works, and answering a few questions that come up.

The classroom itsself is asyncronous, meaning, while there are still deadlines for assignments, there is no set class meeting time, which makes it great for working folks

Alot of the assignments in this class were to copy illustrations out of Peck's Atlas of Human Anatomy. Others were figure studies, usually timed. In my experience, I found that alot of students have a really hard time keeping up with the assignments and attendance. (which unfortunately makes it hard for the students that are keeping up, to comment and participate) But the advantage to the forced participation is that all the students really help each other with tips and tricks for improvement. The teacher in a way does also, but is more a passive pressence than anything.

Its not a perfect system, in fact its very flawed...however, for students dedicated to learning mostly on their own, and putting in a good bit of time doing so, its a pretty good way of doing things. For working adults, such as myself, it is a perfect way to attend college classes from the comfort of home. Its also great for people that already have a degree in something completely different (for example Computer Science (me!)) and are looking to make a career change without giving up on their life to become a full time college student again.

Honestly, I often wonder about the program, and the quality of students...but for me, its fun and convienient, I think I am growing in my art, and so, its great for me I would say I have learned alot from it (almost as much as I have learned lurking around these forums )

Annemee,

Thanks greatly for your detailed comments and description of your online coursework...as you can imagine, it's really interesting for me to hear, as it helps me to figure out the best way to run online Workshops as well.

Your work really shows the hard work and dedication you put into your class...I am really super impressed, and it's really encouraging to see that this kind of quality work can be the result of an online course. It's actually not surprising, given all of the great work that I have seen come out of the Open Figure Drawing Workshop ~ in fact, in some ways, I think the online format actually has a number of advantages over a live class, though of course there are many disadvantages as well. I think the advantage is getting to see everyone's work and having the ability to save it along with lectures / demos, etc. I don't have any pictorial record (eg, photographs) of my art school career, and I think having the ability to look at notes ad infinitum is a huge bonus feature of distance learning, as it is somewhat blandly called.

May I ask, which career are you looking to transition into? Being an artist, animator, modeler ~ or some combination? It is interesting to know. You do know about the CGWorkshops ~ they are adding more and more courses (the program is relatively new) ~ but if you were interested in things like Maya, etc., these might be good courses for you as well. I am excited to be teaching my first CGWorkshop starting Oct. 3, and in truth, it is structured much like the course which you took. That is why it is really exciting for me to see the quality and level of work which you have created for your course. Very cool to see!

It's great to have you aboard, and if you have any suggestions for how we might improve / add to the Anatomy Forum, I am always open to suggestions.

Great work, and I hope to see more!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Thank you

I am looking to possibly focus on computer animation. But at this time, I am doing a Game Art and Design degree...I may switch once I get a good reel set up for admissions to the MFA program in computer animation.

I have checked out the workshops here, and they all look really great! However, with my current school expenses, its just not possible for me to do at this time. I do love all the knowledge that I have gathered from the collective experience here though. This community is a fantastic resource!

Its funny, but I must admit, the best thing about working online from home is: the ability to listen to my favorite music while working on my assignments in my pj's!

Annemee,

You're welcome! ROFL, the bit about the pj's is pretty true. Much luck in your pursuit of an MFA, I've been in my own program (part~time) forever, and I may graduate in 200 years with any luck!

For drawing/painting practice, definitely check out our Open Figure Drawing Workshops here on the Anatomy Forum if you haven't already done so (I may have mentioned it, but I'm getting senile, lol!) ~ they're free and a lot of really great work is being done there. New nude drawings are posted every 2 weeks, and you may use whichever digital or traditional medium you choose to draw or paint from the model. Hope you can join us! We are currently in the 2nd week of OFDW 004.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

I know what you mean about the part time thing! If I continue in the same schedule of classes, I will graduate in oh...12 years or something rediculous like that. Good luck with your studies!

Heres to both of us someday finishing! KONBAE!!

ROFL, I know...I knew I wanted to be a life~long learner, but I didn't think that it would be all at one place!!!
