Charly Clements - student project

This class couldn't have come at a better time! I'm such a big fan of Tom Froese and when I saw this class I just had to create my own 'Odd Bodies". The exercises and techniques helped me so much in being more expressive with my illustrations.

 

Here's my initial sketches for drawing 5 people doing the same activity:

I really liked how these looked and decided to add a bit of colour to them!

Moving on to drawing people in shapes, this was a lot harder than I thought!

I chose my favourite pose to colour:

This class was so much fun and a great way to be more confident in letting go of perfectionism. I still have a long way to go with my poses, but I know using the techniques I learned from these exercises I'll get there eventually. Thanks for all your tips Tom, your teaching style is awesome!
