Vicki's Studio - student project

Working on this illustration, along with the other Tom Froese courses has created a revolution for me in the way I draw. I'm from a Fine Art background so when I switched to illustration I found it so hard to stylise and simplify. The feeling of drawing from observation, then from memory is SO liberating - it almost feels like I'm doing something naughty (in a gleeful way). I couldn't believe it was possible to draw more complex things like my desk space from memory, and it made my lines so much more confident and my shapes much clearer. It also allowed me to improvise and be more creative with my layout because it built my confidence. Making this piece has resolved a lot of my artistic dilemmas in other aspects of my working practice too, and will make my work quicker and more sustainable for the future. Thanks so much Tom for an AMAZING course!Vicki's Studio - image 1 - student projectVicki's Studio - image 2 - student projectVicki's Studio - image 3 - student projectVicki's Studio - image 4 - student projectVicki's Studio - image 5 - student projectVicki's Studio - image 6 - student projectVicki's Studio - image 7 - student projectVicki's Studio - image 8 - student projectVicki's Studio - image 9 - student project
