I love this weeks' class. I love doing detail. And I love drawing buildings. Learning foreshortening is a little harder. I really get a lot of zen from doing tiny details. I almost don't need to sleep when I get that much zen. I also love drawing in 3D.

Flowing Frameworks class was super challenging but so much fun! I'm pretty happy with my finished product and learned so much in the process.

 Learning how to create whimsical 3D Buildings was an intense amount of focus which transported me into a whole new world. I could see the 3D effect instantly and the simplistic clarity in which the lesson was taught made it super easy to get results . I was thrilled to see the sketch come to life.
