Post Two

 I'm still working on my 101 drawings, but playing with scale.
I always find it interesting to add people or objects to give a sense of size, especially where it makes such a difference to the purpose of something.

This one is just a general look at a few more ideas.

Here I'm starting to draw out what I really liked within my concept drawings.  Some of those shapes were so organic and flowed into corals and sea creatures.

Continuing with lifeforms, I'm now starting to flesh out my ideas.  I hate creepy crawlies and generally go for more cuddly shapes but I'm finding its really interesting to try out something a bit nastier.  I'm looking at legs, jaws, teeth, stings, pincers etc. I havent decided yet whether the creature is insect sized or a people-eater!

At this point I got sidetracked with ideas for buildings and some of the shapes on the third picture above.  The third one is a tracing of the second with the edges curved.  I have no idea about drawing in perspective so I'm not sure how I will manage to do a turnaround of this though!

Summer Project 1

I thought I would start with "lifeforms" as I thought it would be easier to draw something organic.  But, having repeated the shapes I can see some lovely ideas for structures and machines forming so I may keep going with those.

Hi to everyone on the course, hope to see you all in September!

First impressions...ideas from the objects

repeating the same shapes over
extending shapes into forms

fitting shapes together. I don't like the mix of structures on the right.
