This is the lion skull with a main I designed. from the other I used the main to show the life within the lion. I really do like this one but I feel I could used the idea of different zones of time within a different and more artist way. I really did like doing this because it did make me learn how to add in more detail and I feel I am getting more comfortable with being more relaxed when adding in details (e.g. in the skull) so next I want to try and use time zone for effectively
This is a fennec fox skull. This lino print is black oil based ink and on paper. The idea behind this is that it shows life and death and how death can also bring life to other things, this then shows time and how over a big part of time we all play our part but also life and death within it. death is a horrible thing but sometimes you need death of one thing for another to live, like how animals kill so they can eat.
I really like this piece and feel I’m getting a lot more confident within shading and how to use the lino print to create the look of depth. for these I use a scalpel as I find I have a lot more control.
From knowing i didn’t really want to go in the direction of ‘creatures’ from the quick sketches in the woodlands, i wanted to keep doing work but figure out where i wanted to go. so i decided to do something i know as a bridge to somewhere new. so i started to draw skulls.
when i finished this drawing i was so happy with it and got so exited to do another one, so i decided to do another. i decided to do skulls because we trust our skulls to looks after our brains but they cant help us from the inside so it cant protect us from mental health.
this was the second skull i drew, as i was really exited to carry on but while i did this i started to think about they eyes of a human and how there is more on a connections with the eyes, i feel this would be a better way to convey my idea.
after these two skulls i wanted to start looking into human eyes. in my own time i do want to draw more skulls though.
