Y1 Painting: Moodscapes

Was going to Photoshop before posting but... I suppose that would be cheating.

Y1 Life Drawing: BONES

Exhausting bones project. Please ignore the text. It's both poorly written and erroneous... I'm truly ashamed!
The title page was influenced by the wonderful Florian Satzinger!

Y1 Character: Rotation

DIGIMON STYLE!

For outsiders: an animated sequence of the individual angles helps to determine how accurate the drawings are. I actually really like the look of bad pencil testing. Hand-in assignment:


In-class posing + silhouette value practice: we were told to draw them 1. pulling a rabbit out of a hat and 2. punching itself.

Early concept sketches:
