Toy dinosaurs and relativity

I had my second drawing class today (as you might have gathered from the photo). We discussed contour drawing, gesture drawing and started on shading. As our models for the day, our teacher brought in many of his son's toy dinosaurs. After a while, we were encouraged to wander around and see each other's efforts.

It turns out that I am relatively good at this (at least from what I could see). Of course, that is based solely on the relative scale of adults taking a summer introductory drawing class. Still, I feared I'd be surrounded by people woefully unaware of their amazing talents. Phew!

Self Portrait of the "Artist"

My introductory drawing class starts tomorrow. I alternate between being excited and what was I thinking? I'm thinking I will record my progress here, as I doubt anybody actually reads it.

Here is a self portrait free handed in Gimp (though my drawing class is for the old fashioned sort with a pencil and paper).
