[DRAWING] In-class Assignment (4 hours)

I regret working on newsprint as It’s hard to get dark values on it. It’s pretty difficult to capture all the elements into a single composition, but I tried to challenge myself. I also came in late because the LRT broke down so I wasn’t in a particularly good mood when I started drawing but I got more into it… Read more →

[DRAWING] Still Life Composition Homework (outlines)

  Reflections: The tape dispenser was extremely hard to draw. Especially the curved part as there is no defined edge.

I like how the ribbon on the box juts out of the silhouette, adding visual interest. Same goes to the flap on the tissue… Read more →

[DRAWING] 30 Composition Ranking – Photos

1. This is my favourite composition as there is balance between the foreground, midground and background. The elements on the chair are also clearly visible from an engaging top-down angle, where we can see details on both the top of the tissue roll and box. The small flap on the tissue roll also creates an additional shape outside of its… Read more →
