Stick drawing: Oh my goodness! This was SO much harder than I remembered (and yes, I'm 30+ years older, too, I know!). My back does NOT like this at all. I've got to sit down. And I'm amazed at the concentration this required! My professor is having a good laugh in heaven, no doubt!
This is my final effort (you should have see the 1st!). But there's so much more actual distortion in this than when I "tried" to draw a distorted image. The other drawing still retains far too much precision. This is the kind of distortion I had in mind, so I'm grateful to my professor, who continues to help me, all these years later.
I can't try to do anymore today (or I'll end up in traction, no joke!). But it works! It's true that we suffer for our art!
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
