I'm too late for this assignment buuut I wanted to try and do something! I found this drawing some years ago and really liked and thought it might be fitting to try and do it as an assignment piece. However I did change the end result slightly. P.S. If someone knows the original artist of the artwork, please let me know! Thanks!
Here is my attempt at sketching from imagination with various references. Nerd alert. I created a Star Wars inspired Gungan Jedi. I was always fascinated with the Darth JarJar fan theory lol, so I thought I’d give it a go. This character is meant to be a light side Jedi. I wanted to give the character a sense of grace in combat, much Luke from the Mandalorian, while also trying to stay true to the ‘Drunken Boxing’ martial arts style, which gives the illusion of clumsiness and utilization of distraction techniques. The lightsaber is inspired from the various gungan weapons seen in Star Wars episode 1. Designs of the Jedi robe were taken from Boss Nass attire. It was a fun project and I learned a lot!
I do not know if I am very late or too late, but I just finished Level 1. The hand was the easiest one for me, the pinguin was the hardest. I drew this $%&& bird 5 times because he kept looking stupid. My lines got better with each time and that's what matters.
Level 1 guy attempting to make a jump. I tried to sketch the giraffe looking at the camera while running. My main problem seems to be establishing proportions, so rather than doing it with the pencil I use a scale divider. Is that ok or should I try to work without it?
This was fun :) I decided to design a simple fox character (who doesn't love foxes?). I also wanted to practice more fluid lines and dynamic poses (hence I looked at some more dynamic-looking animal illustrations). I really enjoyed the sketching process, and I would be happy to receive feedback / thoughts :)
Here's my inspiration board of a crab. First page I did as warm up and getting a feel of how to construct this creature, and to get an idea of what it looks like from front- and backview. On the second picture I wanted to have a crab do some acrobatics :D This was so much fun. Tomorrow I'll sketch more crab and attempt to add some character in them. I'll edit pictures in this post.
