I would like to start by saying how much I enjoyed this class. I've been drawing for years and after watching all the lectures I realized how chaotic my art process has been and how important it is to draw from the heart. I come from a background of traditional drawing with emphasis on realistic drawing and I've always struggled balancing the observational drawing with my own style.
This class has instilled more confidence and less fear drawing ideationally.
Thank you Tom for your wisdom and encouragements!
For my final illustration I created a fictional workspace as I currently draw anywhere I can. What is very accurate though is the presence of the baby figure, as I become mother 10 months ago and my little one is always around me.
I enjoyed curating the elements in the composition, but picking the colour palette and decide on a style, was a bit of a struggle.
Here's the process. From left to right, you can see the reference, mode 1 and mode 2 of the sketches.
