Then the rest of the week, I attended the AQS Quilt Show held for the first time in Phoenix. You can see a list of winners here. I will post more about the show later this week. I also took 3 classes with Noriko Endo, a quilt and fiber artist from Japan.I will also post about these classes later this week.
Today, I want to post my sketches I did this week. I continued to work on my dragon head sketches from J. "Neon Dragon" Peffer's book Dragonart Evolution. I started with the eyes in week 3. In week 4, I drew 3 of the different types of jaws Peffer introduces. This week, I finished the other 3 type of jaws. Again I added more details to make an entire dragon head.
Pencil sketch on drawing paper. Closed under bite jaw. In researching
dragons, I realized that I could use any animal to get inspiration for a
dragon. I chose a ram's horns to create the horns for this dragon's head.
Pencil sketch on drawing paper. Closed beak jaw. I added feather-like
details for this dragon, like an archaeopteryx.
Pencil sketch on drawing paper. Open beak jaw. I had the most fun
drawing this dragon. I just added frills here and there for details.
I just realized there's not a pupil in the last sketch with the open beak. But, that's okay. I'm learning to live with imperfections - I don't have to draw something perfectly before showing it off. I can just enjoy the process! I hope you enjoy my sketches, too.
