Osaka city, downtown. Marionet guy, but just jumping here around with the traditional Japanese dance music. The doll was so cute.

Final Drawings 8/15/07

Here are my last works from the Intro to Anatomy class.

Hands and feet

Hands and Feet

This is my own foot and hand.

EX#1 I thought we should just draw as quick drawing, so I didn't push too much for the proportion, etc. But the latter half I was getting to understand about drawing hands (such as moving the paper holizontally, and vartically to get the right proportion), so I spent more time the the first half. As you see, my first attempt of brown charcoal pencil. For the background I just added brown conte at the end where the dark was.

EX#2 I experimented the use of brown charcoal and carbon pencil again as well as practising toning the backgrond. That might not be necessary to do here. Feet were harder than hands. My feet tended to be smaller for the size of their legs. Just to finish as quick as possible, so I didn't go further for proportion.

Homework#12: I took picture of my self- hand and foot on the mirror, stood by side of a camera and used a cable. My foot came out on the edge of the mirror, so I just drew as the same, drew the f…

Mod 10 works (week 10)

I got a B again!

Here is my Mod #10.

I toned background, holded the pencils with loose finger, tried not use the tip of the pencil too much, used the cloth to smooth out the shadow & light, used the kneaded eraser insead of a stick eraser that I have been using.

I pushed more for the EX#10.1 as much as my energy allowed. The upper leg should be more clearer now. Also, I think it was something wrong with how I took the photo for the last one. sorry...

EX#10.2 posted. That was just really hard. Learned more about value making with different darkness of pencils. Sorry, I found my finger prints (sweat got oily & made marks) on the image didn't notice with my bear eyes. I may erase and post it again if I have time.
