Here are my life drawing exercises:
At first we started drawing Sharon with a time limit of 20 minutes, this was so we could get used to drawing again. After I had stepped back from my drawing I suddenly realised how disproportionate I had made Shannon. I needed to elongate the arms and legs, and perhaps make her head smaller!
The next time round we only had five minutes to draw and observe each position. I slowly began to come out of my comfort zone, of "neat" and "tidy" drawings. Rather than focusing on small details I kept my charcoal on the paper and studied the body with my eyes. By the third set of sketches I could see a dramatic improvement with my proportions and I only had two minutes to complete each pose!
The last drawing of Sharon's face was my favourite, as faces are something that i'm used to. Even so, I still think there is room for improvement on this one!
Making this map was very difficult, as I'm still learning the wonderful ways of Photoshop! Eventually I understood exactly how to place and crop the images the way I wanted to on the template. This map only portrays images from an interior perspective, which will help me gain some inspiration for my key thumbnails.
