When I showed him some of my older works he said "oh, that's good.... mhm... you should bring that in the winter time..." ever so calmly as he passed by.
I was a bit confused at first, so I questioned him with a "why?"
He replies "those would be good to put under my tires..." and he walked off to look at the other student's work. I only laughed. I know he's not a fan of Japanese Animation so I thought nothing of it. I didn't even take his insult to heart. But when I showed him my newest sketches of 2012 homework assignments, the ones I posted on this blog last week, he said "good, nice" and because he had no insult to dish out to them, I could tell he was impressed.
Shortly after, the class began. We got to prop up the light boxes before switching on the light and mounting our paper on them. The professor requested that we sharpen an H or HB pencil for this exercise. He started us off drawing very round, perfect circles. Each circle had to be exactly the same shape and size; sides touching. When drawing the circle you would first start off motioning your hand in a circle, the tip of your pencil hovering just above the paper. When your hand was warmed up after about 5-8 rounds, you would, at first, lightly press the tip of the pencil to the paper still following the circular motion. When you were confident enough that you had the motion and the size down, you would continue and press hard for a darker outlining of the circle. When continuing to the next circle you were to look back at the last for reference and make it exactly the same. Ever circle after that should be using the very first circle you drew as reference for the the next. This way you would not stray from the original by making each circle smaller, wider, or taller than the next.
Day 2 is not through! To be continued... (in the next post)
