I'm taking Lilla Rogers Bootcamp again this year and I just finished our first assignment! I love this class, it is so inspiring and motivating.
Each assignment starts out with a mini exercise that you build on to create a final piece of art. This time it was to draw Edwardian brooches. Here's my first go at that:
I wasn't really getting into the subject matter, but something about them reminded me of the lushness of the Lady and Unicorn tapestries, so from that, I sketched these:
which became drawings for my final project, to design a journal cover. This was kind of a challenging assignment but I think I like how it turned out. I also did some heavy Photoshop work to create that fancy pen to go with it! I had fun with that, I haven't done any super Photoshopping in awhile. :)
On Monday the class gallery will be posted, my favorite part! I can't wait to see what everyone else has done.
