Jan-March 2016 week 10

KATIE WANTED GOTHS
So she got some.



Last  night was the final class of the current term.  The class could not have gone better. Everyone produced good work and had a  fun time.
I produce a tutorial to follow each week and recreate it on the flip chart (Katie snagged this one) whic is not compulsory to follow, it is just there for inspiration. The class is more about the development of the individuals interests and ability. 

Andy
Andy hit a home run with this one. Really great work Andy


Eoine

Harvey
Eoine and Harvey were on a roll last night. Great ideas and execution.

Katie
Goth by the delightful Katie

Richard
Richard takes a theme a runs with it and always produces something wonderful, with way more ideas that what are in my tutorial, which is exactly what my class is about.


Dragon Of Hope by Oliver
Oliver, you have made significant improvement this term . 
Well done


Vanessa
Vanessa channelling women power.
As would be expected.

Here are the breakdown for the class plus some reference material








The trick to drawing someone playing guitar and making it look convincing is no different from drawing someone wielding an axe. You have to imagine the weight of the item the person is holding and  transfer that weight to their body. Think about how the weight of the item  effects their posture.
For this particular exercise, maybe watch some youtube videos of  guitarist and study their posture.


watch  Paul Simonon (bass player)



Finally, don't forget, a new term of fantasy art begins, Tuesday 19th April 2016.
Swarthmore are taking enrolments now.
