In a stroke of genius, I dug up my wacom tablet's complimentary program disc and uploaded adobe photoshop elements. It's a lot like regular photoshop except hard to navigate, non-customizable, and missing a few key options and tools. Needless to say I won't be digitally painting anything in this program anytime soon, but it gets the job done for simple inks, flats, and cel-shading I suppose. It will tide me over for a while at least.

the face is wonky but I guess it's OK. :/
for some reason the model instructor wanted our model to hold a smile for a good 10 minutes. I felt sorry that no one else seemed to even be drawing much of the face, so I took it upon myself to draw the expression to show him that his suffering meant something!

the model had a a sunburn on her shoulders and her arms and feet were tan, but the rest of her was PALE. I was trying to convey that, but it just came out looking like the markings of a koi fish, haha. I had a very limited color palette on me though.
and something I made using a stock photo as reference:
I really want to do this, but from a live model. I know I'd have to do the cut n' paste stuff once the model is gone, of course.

the rest I've done in like the past 3 or so days:
not sure how much I like how this turned out- it's based off of a gesture I did of my cat, Myuu, but I didn't use any more reference than that. Animals aren't exactly my strong suit :/
yeah, the feet are wrong! oops! I've fixed it on the original verison, I'm just too lazy to change it right now :) haha. Things like that happen to anyone.
Probably my favorite of the bunch. First pose's reference comes from a gesture I did from Charlie Chaplin. yaaaay.
