From the drawing board

Here's some photos from my iPhone of something I'm working on at the moment for a class assignment. Got to design 3 apps for the iPad around a few selected theme ideas. This app here is a bit of a rip off Tiny Wings on the iPhone with some changes made to it, but I still like the idea of it.

Life Drawing session - part 2

Some life drawing taken from todays session.

Below is some 15 minute sketches. I think I need to do the under drawing in future with a blue pencil before going in with the pencil.

Life Drawing session

So I've started doing life drawing in my drawing class on Friday. It was pretty interesting exercise since I haven't done any life drawing since 1996 I think? Anyway it was mostly 1 to 2 minutes poses, with some 5 minute poses towards the end.

All of these images on the right are 2 minute poses I think of the model holding an umbrella.

Towards the end, we did a series of 6 poses with the umbrella which we were told to animate into a sequence in Photoshop, similar to the hand piece I posted before. You can see the end result below.

Below is some 5 minute sketching we did at the end of the session.

Some drawing exercises

Haven't been posting much since I've started the new semester for university, this time at a new uni. The best thing about this new course is it's more art focused than my old degree I was doing, so I am enjoying it a lot more.

Here is a drawing exercise we had to do, which is a short animated gif of 7 drawings of my hand going from open to close. I'm pretty happy with how it came out, seeing how it's not done like traditional animation with light boxes to make sure everything is smooth, but rather just drawing each hand separate then combined in Photoshop and hope it works lol

The other exercise we had to do was to draw a bike from memory, then draw a bike from observation.
