Stylizing Sloths + Style Challenge

Stylizing Sloths + Style Challenge - student project

This class was so fun and inspiring to watch, as always. I really love when Yasmina talks about other artists and analyses their art. It makes me discover a lot of new artists and look at their art with fresh, critical eyes.

This is kind of a long project. I made a lot of drawings while watching and listening to the lessons. I've made all of this on my iPad using the Procreate app. 

So, these are some examples of step one (observation). I made these studies using reference images I found on Google. I found that the more I did, the easiest it became to draw them and I started adding more detail.

This is step 2, where I tried to play with proportions, shapes, etc.

And finally, these are step 3, where I applied colour and tried to use different techniques.

I also gave the style challenge a go. I know it's kind of basic but it was such an interesting exercise.

And that's it! Thank you for taking a look at this :)
