Another piece drawn with a regular mechanical pencil and completed the day before it was due (see Studio Art Project #1). Our job was to draw a person, full-bodied, with clothes (my teacher was adamant about that), but I couldn't get anything to come out at first. I tried drawing character skeletons, but my poses were getting increasingly awkward. Then a few hours passed and I thought "Screw it. I'm just going to start drawing and see what comes out." So here we have Medusa, inspired by reading Edith Hamilton's Mythology for summer homework! You may have noticed that I drew her a bit on the plump side; I'm going to experiment with drawing different body types this year. Stay tuned!
