We began by simply drawing a personal character of ours so the instructor could gauge where we were, skill-wise. I chose my gargoyle critter, Grin, and immediately felt rather boring. The second project helped alleviate those feelings very effectively and made me realize how little attention I've been paying to silhouettes in general.
Above are some guerrilla life drawings from my sketchbook. The gist was that we were supposed to draw the essence of a person; glance at 'em for a moment and configure a character. Fun x 1000
|Hand practice- I should do this more often.|
|'Jem' character redesign|
|Mockbee Satyr Expressions|
And lastly, an expression sheet for a faun lady character I've been toying with. Overall I'm having mixed reactions toward my work and motivation in this class; it's fun as hell, but it's also proving once again that group collaboration isn't my forte. BUT, onwards and upwards, much to learn, etc.
