Back to doing the visual arts homeschooling for my niece after a brief break: we had to evacuate for a while due to a Freaking Forest Fire. Needless to say, that threw any interest in learning out the window for a while.
We finished up color theory (for now) and she proved she has a good grasp of it and what it's for. That's more than I could say for myself when I was her age!
Tonight we went over thumbnail sketches and why they're useful. I felt awful because it was mostly lecture and very little practice... boring stuff, and I'm sure it's hard to see why they're useful if you don't do them. Do any of you do thumbnail sketches before you start on a project?
I find I spend more time planning a render with words and outlines than I do actually putting the things together in Poser.
Speaking of which, I need to get back to planning an "I" twi'lek render... Inquisitor, maybe! (Not like there weren't any twi'leks in the old Inquisitorius guild on Starsider ::coughcough:
