Wow after Lines and a few Shape lessons. I have finally reached the hardest part of the skill and the most tedious and time consuming skill required. Im so happy I made it this far. But I am very fearful already this is one of the most complicated habit I need to acquire. Here it goes :)
For this assignment, it was interesting to simplify the animal faces into shapes even though I’m not very good at drawing animals to begin with. It taught me to break things down into it’s important shapes which was a bit frustrating but fun. If anyone has any advice they’d like to give me on what I can improve then go ahead, I’m all ears.
First attempt at level 2 of this project. I wasn't sure how far to take the simplification of the skeleton captain, so that's one thing I hope to clarify for myself with the demos. Still, this was really good practice. Thanks for the assignment. Any feedback is appreciated.
'An adult giraffe eating from a tree, whilst a baby giraffe drinks from a stream underneath'. (Unfortunately the tree is only there in heart) I wanted to research an animal that I knew almost nothing about before attempting my own drawing from imagination, doing sketches of giraffe's over the past few days. Its a fun task I'll definitely revisit regularly.
Day eight. I didn't have any time to sketch before work, so I brought along a little A6 sketchbook that's been laying around for weeks in my room and I think I've finally found it's use; carrying around with me to sketch whenever possible.
Here are my sketches for the project, starting with the penguin, I failed countless times before this one getting the proportions right. The VR Girl and Spider Hand here are the first attempt. I've been listening to the Draftsmen a lot whilst drawing and critiquing your own work is an important thing I've taken away from episodes.
