This class brought out skills I didn't know I possessed, in terms of drawing figures in perspective, creating them out of shapes and even helped me start deciding on a style of illustration moving forward. I really enjoyed the exercises and the process. My final illustration is from the first sketch I did of a girl doing yoga on the beach. I transformed that into a gymnast in mid movement in front of a crowd. I tried to exemplify the following exercises: perspective, simplification, color and shapes in this illustration and hope you like it! I'm also sharing the other drawings I did during the process and exercises. Thanks, Tom!

This was from the 5 poses on a page exercise. I chose women playing football as the similar activity they are carrying out. May digitize this one later on as I like the energy flowing through this page.
