(We had no lesson on week 9.)
As the title of this post suggests, we had our fourth life drawing! Only this time, we had a male model instead of a female model as per the previous three life drawing sessions. It was a tricky challenge drawing this week’s life model as he had a muscular and well-defined body. Many details had to be looked into for his features to be brought out. The following are the sketches I did during the lesson (in sequential order – from the start to the end of the tutorial):
Week 7 sure was an eventful week. We started class on Monday with an examination of lights on different objects – lightest light, middle tones, darkest dark, shadow, cast shadow, reflective light, and tone next to tone. Thereafter, we began our third life drawing. This time applying all the techniques we’ve learnt previously, such as proportions, relativity, and toning.
The pictures below are of the assignment we did in class – life drawing III.
We ended the last week of the first part of Semester I with a trip to the Dragon Kiln on Saturday. It sure was an interesting experience to end off the hectic week! Our trip to the Dragon Kiln will be further elaborated in the next post.
As the title of this post suggests, we had another life drawing session during tutorial. Unlike the previous tutorial class to get us warmed up with life drawing and poses, we focused on getting the proportions right, as well as pay close attention to the details of the feet – how it arches, where the big and small toes lie et cetera this class. The following are pictures of the assignment we did in class:
The assignment Professor Kelly gave us to do at home was to examine and draw five different poses/perspectives of our feet and hands respectively. The following are pictures of the assignment:
I must say, life drawing has been interesting thus far. It’s amazing how the features of a model can be brought to life with lines, strokes, proportions, and gradients. Have a good day!
The following are pictures of the assignment we did in class – life drawing of a nude model:
The assignment we are to do at home was to draw 20 poses, similar to the drawings we did above. The pictures of the assignment are as followed:
