The image above was the first project completed for my Drawing From Imagination class, and hence...was drawn from my imagination. The idea of this class is to learn various aspects of linear perspective in order to create realistic people, places, scenarios, etc. without the aide of visual reference. The buildings and shadows in this drawing were created using specific methods of perspective geometry to give it proper effect.
Below are two twenty minute in-class figure drawings and the first homework assignment from my Clothed Figure Drawing class. The goal of this project was to evaluate form by analyzing the elements of stretch and compression as exemplified by a flour sack, of which we were encouraged to embellish with character and narrative.
