Fist week back an we started off with some warm up one minute poses, I don’t have much here to show as I had a rough start. The class finished with us drawing the model in a chair, I think my attempt wasn’t too bad but my perspective could be more informed, mike drew the figure on the right hand side of this drawing.
Homework – Research form
Started off with some warmups, still a bit rough, I need to practice drawing people more so I am quicker at identifying how i should shape their curves and add perspective. At the end of the class we did a dead rotation, mine sort of has a resemblance to Jackie but could use a lot of work, I struggle doing drawings like this with Conte.
This week didn’t go well, my drawings aren’t showing weight or balance, the perspective needs a lot of fixing also some of my warmup drawings are ok though. At the end of class we had to draw imagining we were looking at the model from a different perspective, this was fun and confusing and quite hard as my attempt shows.
I think that this week went well, I liked my warmup drawings I think the proportions, weight and balance show. I also really enjoyed drawing the hands which I didn’t expect to happen, thinking about the underlying form as simple cubes helped a lot.
Also completed, page flip hand animation
Another good week in my opinion, I feel my warm up studies are fairly accomplished, the balance is iffy in some but other than that I’m quite happy with how they are turning out. Drawing feet wasn’t too bad either, the simple shapes made them easier to draw.
This was a difficult week, we had to draw storyboards as Mike told a story of a lady who was trying to catch a bus as Jackie did poses. Looking back at what I drew I’m not sure what plot line I tried get across, it was an interesting exercise to say the least.
Warmups were a bit off today, my lines weren’t very solid, the shapes could be improved upon. At the end of class we did a head portrait, I struggled at the beginning, my second attempt was bit better, I sometimes just find it difficult to put complex shapes in perspective, I need to work on this.
Robert’s back and lifting boxes, i like some of my warm ups more than others, I think the show good balance. For today we were supposed to have a character idea so we could draw our character using Robert as a reference, i did not have this done so I experimented with different designs, I liked the last ones I did, kind of just long, strong slender men.
My apologies for the awful picture quality…
