Here is the continuation of the last post.  Consider class four as the textures class. Well, textures part one, that is. We actually had so much to cover that we didn't get to finish all the textures that Ty had in mind for us.  This class basically covered natural textures such as foliage, rock, water, and fire. Smoke was the one that we didn't have the opportunity to try.

I also have a LOT of homework for this class that I didn't actually do yet. I know, bad jupe. I'll be asking my neighbours later if I can borrow their table and work in quiet without two wild kids climbing all over me as I do it. Plus, they have a clean dining room table whereas mine looks like Armageddon.

Anyway, here we go. Week Four.

First up was water textures. I had a lot of trouble with this and will be working on them a lot more in my homework. It's starting to come around but I have a long way to go.

And here is the water exercise. The person who did the penciling had no idea how to draw water, so it was up to us to make it look like water and to NOT trace what he did, originally.

Next up is the foliage texture. If you look at the top of the page, you'll see a bit more water practice.  Foliage was really easy for me. I picked it up without much problem at all. There are two kinds of pine trees: one is alive and one is dying. It's kind of cool learning how to do both, We learned leaves, conifers, deciduous, grass, flowers, plants, etc. It's neat how you do all of them individually.

After foliage was rocks. My buddy, Greg, is really good at rocks. I was good at some, but not others. I need more practice and have yet to do the rocks homework. I wish I had a picture of Greg's rocks. They were awesome.

Here are my less awesome rocks and rubble and mountains.

Finally, we learned fire. We didn't have a lot of time for fire, but that's okay. Here's the jist of it.

Lastly, we were given a few assignments to work on. Here is the one that I started. It's Rogue in a loincloth with a dinosaur in the background. She's in the jungle, and there are plenty of rocks and water and foliage to work on. When I finish the homework part, I'll likely ink Rogue and the dinosaur, too, because it's MFing Rogue and a dinosaur, right?

Stay tuned in. I'll have Week Five coming up this week, as well as some of my homework.
