New Years Resolutions and Sketch Dump

My new years resolution: draw more, learn pastels.

My parents got me an amazing set of Prismacolor pastels for Christmas, they are wonderful. I've never tried pastels before, so this is all very new to me. Heres my first attempt, a quick portrait of my dog, Missy. I learned a valuable lesson: don't get too excited, sketch first, or you get an out of proportion pup. But strangely shaped dogs aside, it was a lot of fun trying these out and I'm excited to try more. I'm considering taking a pastel class at a local art studio, could be fun, we'll see!

Also below are sketches of people at JFK and Burlington airports from last week. Below that are "master sketches" of Disney's Tarzan- these are not my original poses, they are just copies that I did of pre-existing work to warm up. And last are a few doodles of tree branches with snow, I thought it was kind of fun

More stuff soon!
