Today we were given a reference sheet with four boxes and four dinosaurs on it. We had to draw each of the dinosaurs in the small amount of space within the corresponding box.
I tackled this challenge by trying to create caricatures of each dinosaur. Caricatures are easy to identify because they highlight important or prominent features of the subject. That was what I tried to do. Let’s just say, cavemen illustrated the prehistoric beasts better than me.
Today’s challenge was to take a very static photograph of a man holding an umbrella and manipulate it. We were shown the silhouette and it was mostly one big blob. Not very exciting.
In my rendition, I focused on making the silhouette more dynamic. I wanted to give the man more angles and pieces sticking out. I realized that drawing the man in a storm with the wind pushing against him, would create the picture I was looking for.
Don’t mind the equations at the top of the picture. I was bored in math class when I drew this picture.
Yesterday’s drawing challenge was to draw an image representing four abstract words. The catch was that you couldn’t use symbols or letters and you couldn’t draw faces. Otherwise you could be as literal or metaphorical as you wanted.
Yesterday’s challenge was to draw 2 of 4 pictures of man made objects as accurately as possible. The options were a house, headphones, an espresso machine and a plane. I’m fairly happy with the results but straight lines seem to be difficult for me.
Today’s drawing challenge came with a worksheet of six faces and six directions of light. It was my task to fill in the shadows according to the direction of the light. My video production degree has finally come in handy.
I apologize, some of the shading is light and hard to see in this post.
Again, I am posting my art long after I drew it. The challenge? Draw something you like. A lot of times people put more effort into something if they like it. That definitely goes for me. I actually really like this drawing. Can you guess what my favorite thing is?
Today’s challenge was to draw one of four subjects in the style of cubism. I had to research what cubist artists were attempting to do when they created art. The main ideas I found were multiple perspectives and geometric shapes. The following is my attempt to follow those two basic ideas. It definitely looks funky but I don’t know if it would classify as cubism.
