April - May 2016 - part 3

Continuing from, April - May 2016 - part 2,
 here are some works by the artists  that were discussed  during class.
I will list  a collection here and  more  in the next post so that it is not too overwhelming to  go through.
Rather than attempt to enlighten you with my own limited knowledge, I will post links  to other more knowledgeable and fun  sources.

Kelley Jones is my dear friend and I am lucky to  have this one hanging on my studio wall.

April - May 2016 - part 1

Due to me moving house and a  heavy load of work, I fell behind with weekly blog posts. I do apologise but it couldn't be helped.
Also, I appear to have mislaid  the flash drive with all this terms reference material, artsit samples and tutorials on it.
So, my plan is this,... I will recap  as best I can, the tutorials , the samples of artist's work  and also samples of your work that I  thought represented either a breakthrough  in your development, or that I thought was outstanding.

To begin with in this first post, I will as much material form the tutorial that I still have on my camera. Some tutorials I  think I gave to Andrew  and I no longer have  record of them. 
Andrew, if you have time to photograph them and e-mail the shots to  steve.beaumont127@googlemail.com   that would be very helpful. If not , no worries.

Week 1
In week 1, we looked at anatomy and flow of movement.
In this exercise, we also looked at lighting and the use of solids.
Would the drawing benefit from being able to see the creature's face, 
or, does the fact that we are unable to see her face add more interest to the drawing?
How would you shade the drawing? Where would you place solids, if any?



Week 2
 In week 2, we looked at various style of fantasy art, by artist working in all kinds of media.


Week 3



Week 4

Week 5


Week 7
Here we looked more closely at figure drawing, shapes and sizes





Week 8 




Week 10
