For my diptych final assignment, I was looking for organic shapes that I could experiment with, some of my options were underwater scenery, human emotions ( eg: wrinkles/laughter ; organic lines that I can be creative with ) and lastly, forest/mountain scenery.

I wanted a focal point to anchor both artworks down so I decided to look for animals/other objects that were asymmetrical to achieve a more dynamic rather than static look.

After much consideration, I decided to settle for a rabbit that is in this pose (as seen in the sketch below ) as I felt that the silhouette of the rabbit provides subtle curves that fit into the forest scenery that I envisioned best.

For this final assignment, I wanted to challenge myself in creating depth by using the medium that I’m most uncomfortable with and new to, that is ink.

Below is a rough sketch of how I want the final piece to look like.

I was experimenting with :

-creating two different artworks

-how can I create depth and volume using different kinds of line work?

– not use pencil / charcoal but still achieve the wide range of tonality it gives through ink?

– As I was using reference pictures for this final piece, the light source had to be reconstructed.

-Uniting both artworks when it is placed together. How do I want it to feel?
