This was the other pair to the standing and sitting figures we had to do a couple months ago on kraft paper and white conte.
Creature Design and Skeleton
This was my first time designing a creature and we had to create a skeleton for it. I went for a bipedal mutated humanoid. I referenced the splicers from Bioshock a lot and I mainly did not want toes on mine.
Figuring our the skeleton for this was difficult...
Master Drawing Anatomy
We had to take a drawing from any of the old masters (a lot of people did Michelangelo this year according to my teacher) trace it and do a muscle and skeleton study of it. I chose one of Michelangelo's and we had to label 20 muscles and 25 skeleton/skeletal structures. This project taught me a lot!
I really need to work on the pelvis...
Contrast and Portrait
Our final two drawings for the year focused on contrast in the figures. One needed to be a standing pose while the other was a portrait, which I was terrified to do because I have difficulty with portraits.
Model stood for 3 hours...
My camera recognized this as a face...so I guess that's a good thing? I'm satisfied with it though.
