Art Style Exercises

Art Style Exercises - student project

Hello! 

Here are my exercises. Looking forward to see where this goes! Will update as I am doing one per day.

Day 1:

It's been forever since I've done a sketch with just pencil so this was fun!

 

Day 2:

Actually not entirely used to painting with ink. For this I started with light values to help define the shapes and then layered with darker details as I go. 

 

Day 3:

Day 4:

Day 5:

Here is my last sketch. I was nervous about finishing in the time limit, so I worked quickly which I think made me simplify and loosen up. At first everything felt like a mess but things pulled together. I still feel like I don't have a very distinct style, as I am always wanting to try new things and experiment. Since I'm always changing things up, it's hard to make it a habit! Nonetheless, I feel encouraged to just keep "being me" and continue drawing and painting after this class. Also want to check out that book!

 

Thank you for the great class!
