Quick sketches using flow lines to construct a pose. Then we did some longer drawings focusing on the torso only. Angle sighting and measuring techniques were applied to help making the drawing accurate. More sketches but using triangular shapes only. I really liked this exercise because it’s loose and exaggerated, like a quick character design.

Started off with the quick sketches using flow lines and added in some forms. Then we did some silhouette exercises- drawing out the pose and prop and block it in completely. The aim of this exercise is that to see if the pose still makes sense, or tell the story even when its a silhouette.

Drawing the pose in a motion- I used different coloured pencils so show different stage of the move. Then we did some exaggerated drawing exercises when we sketch the original pose and exaggerate it according to the animation principle. And more silhouette exercises at the end.

Some quick sketches at the beginning using flow lines, forms and geometric shapes techniques. Then some longer poses with the circling technique, at the same time i used a blue pencil to demonstrate the angles of shoulder and hip to make the drawing more accurate. Followed by a 30 minutes shading exercise, without drawing the outline and go straight into shading for all the dark areas. Lastly we did a cross hatching exercise and drew out the dark areas only again.

Started off with some 20 seconds quick sketch using the shading technique- drawing out the dark areas only and leave the light areas. The we did a series of pose sketches, I focused mainly on the forms and shading. Then finished off with a 15 minutes pose.

This week the aim was to practice shading with lights again and the hatching technique. Poses are all dynamic and strong.

This week we went to London Zoo to sketch. Above are some of the pictures I took and my sketches. I used hatching technique for shading again as it’s quick and effective.
