The only thing I learned from art class last semester: stippling is a pain, but it can look pretty damn good
(fyi, stippling is a process of shading using dots, and I decided to use it for the entire sky. RIP my hand)
Some may recognize this place from my Inktober comic as the mysterious hidden sanctuary (which I’m putting the comic on hiatus again until next fall, I’m sorry but the holidays and finals really got in the way, and I’d rather not post Inktober stuff before or after the season)
This little place actually has a bit of a backstory
As a kid, when I couldn’t sleep, and I was lying bored in bed at night, I’d sometimes imagine a pretty moonlit garden floating in the sky that I could fly up to. This garden was a sort of hub for other imaginary worlds and places that I could visit, the marble platform at the end magically transporting me wherever I wanted.
Nowadays, it’s a relic of my past, holding a couple homages to the things I enjoyed as a kid, as sort of a nostalgic reminder of those fun, innocent days
Starting an art class today for the first time in a long time and drawing something like this is one of my goals.

then again, I kinda had to rush it, the teacher didn’t give us too much time
The Meaning of Foreground and Background in Painting
The school doesn’t have an official art teacher I guess so on my timetable they wrote “Teacher” instead of leaving it blank
Art Project - Self Logo
By Corbin Leach | 2008/2009
Assigment was to design a logo for yourself compiled of logos of things you like. I used Papermate, BalloonShop, Vinnie Veritas, and a clapboard.
Result of one of my art class projects where we had to create an image based on the meaning of a song, using the song’s lyrics
I’ll admit, it’s not as clean or as perfect as I wanted it to be, but I’m pretty damn proud of this one
Lyrics from Punish My Love - Delta Heavy
Litteraly no one:
Me slamming the door open to my art class: HeLLo ChiLdReN iT IS I, tHe DrAmAtIc BeInG yOu HaVe aLL bEeN aWaItInG
Also me: *walks up to a table and proceeds to be gay with my platonic wife*
My teacher: ight so pop art-
Nothing too interesting for this compilation dump, just all the warm-up and mini project drawings I had to do for art class that I’ve deemed worthy enough to post
The rest is pretty boring or messy, I never really liked having to do these since they felt kinda pointless
And the teacher wasn’t great at communicating what she actually wanted us to do, or what a certain definition means :/
Why did I post it in the first place? Idk, it’s still art, it’s still a bunch of drawings I’ve accomplished that I don’t hate, so why not
Art Project: Capture
By Corbin Leach | 2008/2009
Assignment was to create this sort of collage of gradients using a certain theme. Mine was camera and film.
DON’T CHUCK THOSE MARKERS.
15 pounds of dead markers that will NOT end up in landfills or our oceans. Did you know that Crayola has a program called ColorCycle? Crayola ColorCycle will accept all brands of plastic markers, not just Crayola markers. That includes dry erase markers & highlighters. If you collect the dead markers, they’ll send you a free shipping label & you can ship them back to Crayola to be recycled! Link to get started with this program: https://www.crayola.com/colorcycle.aspx This program is currently in the US & parts of Canada, check website & www.crayola.com/colorcycle/frequently-asked-questions.aspx - FAQ’s. Kids get so excited to set up boxes at their schools…know any teachers? These markers were collected in just 3 months at a preschool! Imagine what we could divert from landfills during the whole school year at every school! Thanks for Sharing & Caring, Kim Miller 🖍️🌊
Crayola will take any brand, including dry erase markers & highlighters. Spread the word!
i did this drawing of my high school’s art class sink a few years back. it was always crowded and full of stuff and even though this drawing is super old now it still stirs up a lot of memories lol.
