Before my time at the League, I was mostly a digital artist, so I was really looking forward to drawing on paper. I also had never had an actual art class before, so I came in really looking forward to absorbing any training I could get. In my short time here, I’ve gained a better understanding of lighting and shading and really fallen in love with this medium.
I still have a lot of improving to do, but I definitely feel more capable of doing it because of the fundamentals Costa taught me in class. I’ve already noticed how much faster I can sketch and render and how much faster I can identify shapes.
I find Costa’s comments on people’s drawings very helpful because he makes them to the whole class. This class has made me eager to improve and learn more, and to continue being a student with the League.
