Drawing techniques

Challenging drawing exercises.
Using a range of materials/styles to produce a range of expressive drawing recorded from both an object and outside around me.
This was in fact a challenge for me, as I have become obsessed with detail and neat designs. It was also a great chance for me to let go and explore me techniques that I can interpret into future designs.

Drawing process.

Over the Christmas holiday, I had a lot of spare time to concentrate on my drawing techniques and experiment with new ideas.

A mixture of techniques combined together using line outlining, dot detail, shading using markers. This was a different process used in my drawings, which I really enjoyed interpreting.

Inspired from an image on Pinterest. I tried to recreate using pen and markers and allot of line detail for shading.

Drawing the public – using lines and outline detail.

Here is one of my characters using lines for shading the face and trousers.

Drawing from imagination. (Still in process). Created using pen.

My personal favourite. I enjoyed the quickness of the sketchy detail for shading.

Drawing the public. A challenge I personally hate; drawing in confined space. Or in other words, in the view of others. This chap was on the tube, playing with his phone. Playing with detail in lines

Photographic Typologies

“Typology is the study of types, and a photographic typology is a suite of images or related forms, shot in a consistent, repetitive manner; to be fully understood, the images must be viewed as complete series.”

 

One thing that I took away from the lecture was “Typology is a series of images, that treat objects like objects” – What a great expression. This stuck in my head continuously through planning. I didn’t want to be repetitive with an object, it’s not edgy enough. I wanted to create something that really pins on the idea of something being displayed as an object. My images display a bruise that starts off small through little movements, gradually expanding and taking over the face. The model acting the object, allowing the glass to portray her image.

 

Out of all the shots I took while on the journey  of telling a story, the 3 images above collaborate well. The eye being the main feature that grabs the attention of the viewer.
