cello, finish


here is my final cello piece. Sterling gave it his blessing (on the Illustration Academy forum) so I feel good about it!

What's up with you guys? It's been quiet. I feel like a blog hog. Heather, have you started school? How are the self portraits coming along? I just started sketches on mine today... it's going to be sterling & andrea-esque. i will probably post my sketch before i proceed to final.

I miss you guys! I hope everyone is happy!

sterling was probably right. i dont have any complaints. i think it is a very fine piece. that cello looks hard. about his lack of eyes is there any particular reason for that? not saying i dont like it but just wondering.good job.

Hey cat! It looks great! The cello woodgrain texture and everything look great. All of the shapes fit together beautifully!
Sorry I haven't written on the blog in a while....I was over half-finished with my portrait than I screwed it up and had to start all over. :( So I'm stressing about finishing it now.

thanks for the kind words :)

He doesn't have eyes cause when I drew them in there it took away from the mood somehow... I wasn't tryingn to be totally realistic and I liked the way it looked without them. But it has no conceptual meaning. Maybe I could make something up. I could say my dad's blind and he FEELS the cello while he plays it.

and sarah, on one hand I want to say "don't stress," but on the other hand, I'm glad that having assignments and a deadline is encouraging you to work! And I'm writing this after you already posted your near-finished piece which is amazing. I had to start the cello piece over from scratch - it's annoying but so worth it sometimes!

I LOVE this cello, Cat! That wood grain is beautiful, and the highlights strike me as perfect! I love the juxtaposition between a beautifully rendered cello and the more abstract person. I love the fact that the shape created between the arm and the background mirror the shape of the top of the cello. It just really draws me in. Great job!
