After many hours of concentrated work, I'm going to call this one finished. I think the last time I did a cast drawing was back at Pafa so this was a good exercise to return to. The most difficult part was rendering the background and getting the value dark enough. The instructors taught us rendering techniques and how to control the values, which was what I always wanted to learn.
Today marks the halfway point of my first semester of grad school. I'm really beyond happy with the way this program is going. If anyone out there is a teacher (or interested in teaching) and looking for a solid atelier graduate program then you should apply to the Florence Academy program.
