Chapter 2 Assignment

187
Course In Progress
For this chapter, start by filling your sketchbook with 5 to 10 pages of figure drawings. Really practice experimenting with shape and form and applying design elements. From there, do another 5 to 10 pages of coffee shop sketches. Design the form from what you’re seeing, and don’t forget to add to what you see. Finally, design the adjective “depressed” using only curves. You should end up with an ambiguous, undefined form that still describes a personal narrative.

Hey! I've finally completed the 2nd assignment: 1)Figure drawing without (or almost) design as a warm-up 2)Figure drawing+design based on it 3)Depressed shapes 4)Sketching from life, photos and videos. I have a problem with sketching from life: I'm kinda slow, I can't observe and design at the same time (+super shy). @David Colman do you have any advice on how to practice this skill (I mean, something extra to just go practice :))?

Looking great. Honestly there is no magic answer. It comes with time. Just focus on capturing the natural gesture and acting... Then later go back in and try to design from that observation sketch. Over time you will be able to design characters from life on the spot. Eventually you will get over the shyness but it takes some time.

Hi, I have completed my second assignment and I'd like to ask you for feedback. I'm still very fresh in traditional art and feel a bit more confident digitally.

Here are 10 out of the 16 pages that were from the Chapter 1 assignment. What I had used for this assignment, was graphite, gel pen, and non-photo blue colored pencil.

Hey, here's some of my figure study, focusing on design as a second step. I feel i'm still too close to reality, having troubles leaving out the details...
