Good solid body of work this term.
Your sci-fi themed work is your best in my opinion, so continue your focus and development in this area.
I also like your ideas on costumes , keep this going.
The drawing is from last term but I really like it . Nice detail and tonal range on the dragon.
Keep working on the figure work . Some strong pieces produced this term.
Nice lighting on this piece. Good work.
Keep working on your figure work. The more you observe movement and how the body works and put that into your loose sketches the more your work will improve.
Also try adding slabs of tone or solid ink with a marker or brush to develop shape and form and also to determine light source.
Have a look at Michael Oeming's site , he often posts production sketches of his work.
I like the pattern on the tree in this piece. Would be good to see it finished.
another interesting piece.
As much as I like the work produced following the exercises presented in class, I would like to see you develop your own ideas more. I think you have some great ideas waiting to burst out but I think that lack of confidence is holding you back. This is common with a lot of illustrators both amateur and pro so don't worry, it will happen, either a little at a time or maybe in one great big breakthrough.
Good progress in only 10 weeks (20 hours)
I'll be honest, at first I had some doubts about how much you would achieve within the time frame of the course but you really came through.
I was hoping to document your work better than I have but failure to bring the work in to class has made this difficult. In hindsight, I should have documented the very rough stages of your work. What I did see you develop during class showed a lot of promise. When you put your mind to it you can produce the foundations of some good work. I hope you will continue with drawing whether it be in class or elsewhere.
Some of you are limiting your work to A4 sheets of paper.You are attempting to draw what should be A3 pieces of art on A4 paper. The result is that the detail you want to put into your work is becoming cramped and in some cases messy. By this I do not mean that your drawing skill is bad, I think some of you are trying to cram too much into a small area. A4 sheets are great for rough workings and sketches of full figures or more detailed drawings of head and shoulders .
The original drawing of the wolf tutorial was drawn on an A3 portrait sheet of paper. I think I could produce a similar amount of detail on an A4 sheet if I used a 0.5 Rotring ink pen but as I was using a pencil I chose to use an A3 sheet.
Always consider the size of your proposed work and the appropriate size of paper to work on.
I am not really sure of the type of pen used but I am guessing either an ultra fine copic multiliner (or Rotring ink pen but I don't think Adi uses Rotring pens) for the fine hatching and a brush pen or an actual brush for the solid application of ink.
As much as I would like to focus more on anatomy during class , given that each course is only 10 weeks (20 hours) , there is only time for a crash course in figure drawing. I recommend investing in at least one good book that focuses on anatomy. There are plenty of good resource books out there by Andrew Loomis , Burne Hogarth and magazine omnibus editions of FX magazine.
