I used overhand grip with a charcoal pencil on newspaper print. It was challenging, interesting and fun assignment. Proko's lesson -confident swooping strokes makes sketching faster was reenforced. Attached is my submission for rhythm assignment
Here are my simple animal shapes. First three are level one, rest are level two assignment. The dog portrait I choose make me feel I was looking at an old person who is kind of annoyed with life in general. I tried to make him a happy man in one.
My Master study project . I attempted Peter Paul Rubens “Child’sHead” This is the first time I have ever attempted a project like this. My understanding of the image was that it has been done using pen, brush and ink. I instead tried to do it using graphite. Where ever there were very thick line I used wordless pencils. Background where it seems he has used bold brush strokes I used wood less pencil sides.
Here is my assignment. Along with two for light and order of importance I tried third one where I have light coming from different source. For the Level 2, I have tried a landscape I have attached the photograph. It was not a live observation but photograph that I took myself.
Never imagined I could draw a creature from imagination but after the lesson, I looked at my own photographs of Yellowstone wildlife, I came up with this creature which has a face and a body sort of a cow with deer antlers. neck like a reflection of a swan and how can I not have wings when it only has two legs. since it was from my imagination i was not fearful of the proportions so I was more confident with drawing lines.
Tried all 4. For me the boots were most difficult as I was trying more to be correct with proportion. The others I concentrated more on drawing confident lines. Was drawing from shoulder but sometimes hand was shaking too much
