Week 3 - Homework (16/10/16)

These tasks were fairly simple except the coloured photo in which I got slightly confused with the task that was set, but after a bit of research I think I understood. These drawings are not my best work (due to personal reasons) as they are slightly wonky in places. However I feel like I did embrace the tasks which were set and managed to do my best. I am happy with how the lighthouse has turned out in multiple photos, however the camera could be improved. 

Week 3 - Class Work (10/10/16)

This session was one of the most trickiest sessions I have done. I found some tasks that were set very channelling at points. However I managed to power through and therefore come to terms more with the proportions of which the picture in drawn. I also learnt a few new techniques that I am sure with practise will help me create a much more in portion drawing.

Week 2 - Homework (09/10/2016)

These drawings were interesting to draw as I haven't had much practise with drawing in a negative space, so was unsure of what was expected of me. However after a little research I became clear of the concept and gave it my best. Some objects worked out better than others for example I personally thought that the scissors were more in portion compared to the sharpener. However now I have had some practise, I feel like I am more prepared to use both negative space and tone in my work. 

Week 2 - Class Work (03/10/2016)

Whilst creating these drawings I came to the understanding that I need to focus more on my proportions on the way in which the drawing in formed. However as time progressed through the session I began to feel more confident with drawing that I felt that my pictures were looking better. A way in which I wish to improve my proportions I think will be to keep practising until I can create less wonky drawings. Overall I was impressed with how some pictures turned out as they were better than what I was expecting.

Week 1 - Homework (02/10/2016)

Self Portrait

I felt more confident compared to my last drawings due to the freedom to be able use as much time as I'd like. I have found in the past that I am a somewhat slow drawer so not being put under the pressure of time helped me to focus on drawing to the best of my ability. However I did again feel like my outcome had a lot of cartoon characteristics. I think this is a weakness of mine that I am going to look into improving, in order to create a more realistic drawing in the future. 

Week 1 - Class Work (26/09/2016)

Charlie | 20 mins | No rules
Emily | 10 mins | Speed drawing
Emily | 5 mins | Speed drawing
Kian | 5 mins | Blind drawing
Josh | 3 mins | Blind drawing
Karolina | 20 mins | No rules
Emily | 10 mins | Speed drawing
Josh | 5 mins | Two pens
Sean | 20 mins | Left hand
Josh | 15 mins | 50/50 looking

My feelings whilst creating these pictures were slightly negative due to the fact they were not turning out quite as I hoped they would. I felt that my error was in the fact that the images were not looking realistic and therefore had more of a cartoon style. I think this is one of my weaknesses that I wish to improve. I will aim to do this by drawing quickly and more frequently for example by taking a sketchbook to a local coffee shop to draw strangers within a short amount of time, like I have above in order to challenge myself on a regular basis. However I am very pleased with how some of the pictures turned out for example the left handed drawing I thought personally was impressive due to the fact that I am naturally right handed.
