- I took photos of my drawing at the end of each day of class. This is the progression of the first of two drawing projects. We spent the first half of the semester on one drawing and have started the second drawing.
- This is the finished drawing of Brooks for the first half of the semester. I’m very pleased with it. I’ve learned a lot about planar structure, the emphemeral quality of light and shadow, and when to let the details go and blend into haziness when the composition of the piece demands it. I’m excited to see how my painting style evolves with the knowledge that I’ve gained after the last couple of semesters of intensive drawing and composition.
This is the beginning of the second half of the semester project. I’m still working on getting the proportions of the figure right in comparison to the model. At the end of class, my professor said the drawing was getting too tight too quickly (which I often have a tendency to do), and brushed off the edges of much of the figure with his hands. Tough love, but that’s why he’s such a good instructor. Deconstructing the image always makes it better in the end.
This is the most recent version. I adjusted the height of the pelvis & width of the torso. Still working on the proportions of the arms, shoulders & legs.
