Weekly Sketches #1

Sorry my artistic absence, school's been somewhat busy recently and to be honest I just haven't been drawing anything terribly interesting. School's really hammering us with the basics (like colour theory and shape, construction, etc.) and we haven't gotten many chances just to let ourselves be free~

But my conceptual process class, taught by Julia Breckenreid (I'm not gonna lie to you guys, I've always wanted to do that :'D ) forces us to keep a daily sketchbook so I thought,
why don't I just post what I have in there? It proves to the internet I'm not artistically dead and it'll help motivate me to actually do them every day :p
Every week, most likely on Mondays, I'll post 6 pictures from my sketchbook. Since I'm starting this late though the sketches on this post are from the middle of September. I might post a few more in a couple of days to catch up. 

My reading week just finished... today I guess so I'll be getting a lot of projects back, like my figure drawing portfolio and some painting pieces. I'll upload them when I get the chance :)

What is art?

Once upon a time,
there was once a sketch.

It was a nice sketch,
clean, neat and tidy.

but soon after,
the sketch was overpowered by a terrible force.

It was drowned in useless decorations.
Lost in a sea of senseless colour.

Now the sketch lies buried underneath,
waiting one day for someone to see it's former glory.

And that's what happens to all of my pictures. HOW DO YOU ART????
I'll upload some school stuff once I actually start not being terrible.
