Developmental Drawing Project part 1

Just a tiny post to fill you all in with what I am currently undertaking at the moment.

I have started a developmental drawing project where I will use a range of different surfaces and drawing mediums to eventually create a final piece. For this I have to use four objects which can be in a complete contrast to one another; so eventually I had decided to use the following:-

organic – shell

contemporary – a voodoo statue

historical – an owl engraved pocket watch

manufactured – well I’m still undecided about this unfortunately.

Now to start off obviously I wanted to create a range of sketches where i explore what mediums work best together and also work best on different types of surfaces. I decided to use my first object for these little experiments – the shell – and created a nifty fifty sketches.

Not all of them are my best quality but I suppose they were an experiment worth researching and now I know myself to not use some of them ideas again! I have created a slideshow of these and to view a more in depth explanation about each one you can always view my facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.439914156044070.90452.209288559106632&type=1

Digital media development LO2 part 6

continuation of my development sketchbook.

  

here is a charcoal sketch of a skull and a self portrait which in the next few images you will see to be morphed together.

  this has been used with ‘overlay’ taken from the layers option. It has given the image a gothic feel to it as the charcoal lines look like they are dark scratches across the face and the overall portrait pose looks demonic.

  gr -1      gr -2

the above images have been created using the beloved gradient map tool. Gr -1 is in a complete contrast to the gothic outcome above of the overlay example and instead has a white which glow around the portrait. I do like the abstract look around the hair completely covering the face as though to shadow the woman. Gr -2 makes the portrait look as though she is set a light in flames; a nice effect but the colours are very bright and too overpowering.

Painting one complete

This is the first painting of my creative process.

The idea for creative process is for you to just be as creative as possible. I decided to base my project on peace and war within landscapes and explore how they are in contrast which one another.

Part 1 – peace

For this it has been produced on a pizza base using acrylics and charcoal.
