For this online class I knew I would be drawing on cardboard but I couldn’t find my charcoal so I ended up drawing with pastels. But at first I was put into a smaller group of 3 and I had to do a 10 min drawing of both of the other students and then one more.
My 10 Min Drawings…..
This was my first 10 mins drawing. It is really hard to do life drawing this way as we are all trying to draw each other at the same time. This means that no one is staying still and the lighting is always moving around the person.
I really like this piece but I think that the facial shape could be better and that I should have done more detail on hair.
My Second 10 Min Drawing…..
This was my second 10 min drawing. I am not keen on this piece at all because I feel I could have done a lot better. I feel I could have made an improvement on every aspect on this drawing.
This one was hard as she wasn’t looking at the screen and she would keep moving from this angle to look at someone on the call. Due to her drawing as well.
I do find 10 min drawing difficult as I don’t feel I have enough time to make the drawing look right. In terms of proportion and getting the features within the right place on the face.
My Third 10 Min Drawing…..
While making the first two I lost track of time so I ended up with about 5 mins to do this drawing. So I just concentrated on the face and getting the size and features right.
I feel that I did improve from the first one to the last. I do think I would rather spend some time doing it first though, so I just get a better understanding of how to use the material so I can then concentrate on how I can use that to make a face.
Drawing On Cardboard…..
This was my first drawing on cardboard i really liked the process of doing this and the effect it has. how I created this was I used pastels to cover the whole background with black and then I rubbed it in.
I then used the rubber to start taking away from black background, this would give the effect of highlight. I has 30 mins to do this, so I decided to add white to top as she was wearing a white shirt. but also to where there was a lot of highlight (e.g. nose ring, nose and check bone).
My Second Cardboard Drawing…..
At first I preferred the other drawing to this one. I defiantly found the first one easier than this one. That is because this girl had the window behind her so it was hard to decided where the light is on face.
I now don’t know what one I like better. I do like drawing like this, so I think I might look into developing it and see if I could use it within a drawing I will do of a skull. As I have just recently found a rat skull.
