On Saturday, September 3rd, I decided to get some extra credit and go to the women’s volleyball game! I was having a lot of fun making gesture sketches in class on Wednesday, so I thought this would be a fun extra credit opportunity. There were so many different types of body movement at the game, not only from the volleyball players, but also from the refs, the crowd, the cheerleaders, and coaches, that I tried to sketch more than just the players. When being taught about how to make gesture sketches, I was so intrigued. My entire life I have only been making simple stick figures that had no dimension or depth, or I would make my own version of little people. Hot dogs and balloons was a GAME CHANGER.
I also saw a few of my classmates, Brian Sath and Stephanie Arciva. When I walked in I saw a girl with a sketchbook out and we introduced ourselves to each other. Her name was Samantha Gomez and she goes by Sam. I honestly had a great time and the gesture sketches, although not the best, came out well! It was a little hard to fully capture certain gestures, but I still tried. It was a sad game because Long Beach lost, but I still had fun! They played a good game and some parts got very intense. OH! And how could I forget… The concession stand food was bomb. Stephanie and I had shared a large popcorn and I had a soft pretzel which was a little too salty, but that’s how I like it. Overall, I would give this experience a 10/10 and would recommend for future students because I had so much fun.
