In highschool we would have to play popcorn and we would pick Pat Fenech over and over again because he couldn't read, and we'd waste a lot of classtime waiting for him to get through a full sentence every 3 minutes.

This was the first time I had ever drawn Ron, which was in Foundation Drawing 2 with Elena Arnaoutova. It is quite a shame that he is gone because future students at CCS will never have the chance to use him for a model. Ron, you will be missed a lot by everyone.

He was typical of these faces and gestures that made drawing a treat.
This is one of my favorite portraits that I did while at CCS. I felt as though it actually captured the likeness of him.
This was the last portrait I did at CCS and it was of Ron. It was a good note to leave on.

Figure Drawing I, December 5, 2005.
This is my favorite drawing/painting of Ron that I have. Why? Because in Anatomy, Eugene wanted us to try water based oils. I had never tried them before. We had to crop our painting to just a few features rather than a whole figure. I always had a fascination with Ron's hair. It was always one of my favorite parts of drawing him. Sometimes it would be long and flowy, sometimes it was in a ponytail, I even have a few where he has a bun. And no matter how crappy of a drawing someone did of him, or how unlike him it looked, if you saw that nice hair of his, you knew that was a drawing of Ron. When this pose was done, Ron went around the room like he always did to see what everyone drew. I was still doing some things to mine when he came up to me and said "wow, that's really neat, I don't think I've seen anyone crop a pose of me like that before." I remember telling him "thanks Ron! I just think you have great hair," and he smiled and laughed and walked on. Therefore, this is very dear to me. I am sad and happy now.

Man I really hope more people submit something for this, even if it's late! As I was doing this drawing I thought...oh my god...I am going to cry if someone doesn't try to draw the picture from the doodle episode. Literally as I was drawing George I heard him saying "I look like a troll!" So I had to do it myself, but I know some of you could do a way better version! I know others must know exactly what episode I'm talking about...come on!
