Week 6 Journal

What I made:

Gesture drawings

Anatomic drawings, the first page is just is just some pencil drawings from life. The rest are anatomic drawings, a lot of them focussing on muscle structure as well as experimenting with different lead pencils/shades. Page 2 uses hatching as a shading method. Page 3 and 4 uses contour drawing. The arm on page 6 uses simple contour shading and smudging. I personally liked contour drawing the best, just works better, with some more work on graduation it will look a lot better, looks more natural too. Page 2 onwards drawn from reference from Hogarth.

What I learnt:

The difference between different values of lead pencil, and way that the darker shades are easier to smudge and feels softer/smoother to draw with.

Resources used:

Didn’t really use too many sites this week, due to Steve helping out on the project and my workload within the group decreasing to a certain extent as I did more organisational stuff. I did do google searches for tutorials relating to ziplines, teleportation, grappling hooks and climbing up a rope. But I didn’t watch any tutorials because my lecturer Steve ended up creating this for my team.
