Just some experimenting with colored pencils and stylization, one of my classmates in figure drawing has a very beautiful line quality reminiscent of Michelangelo that I have been trying to emulate. A basic description of the style is that there are no straight lines, all lines are curved, see if these pictures help any...
The final piece to be included in my series of giANT bugs is this cicada. The 'to scale' drawing is on 11"x17" while the zoomed in drawing is on a piece of paper that was about 40"x20" I decided to incorporate color because the insect I was observing was so vibrant that it felt rude to The Creator to not include those vibrant colors.
WIP, you can see my reference in the upper left corner
This is a series I just illustrated titled "giANT" I used micron pens and copic markers, the mosquito I used a hatching shading method. I haven't hatched in a while but I feel it worked well for the texture and piece. The art comes in pairs. each piece is 11"x17" the first is a to scale drawing then a drawing that fills the page. The idea behind this series is that God has created so many wondrous creations but some are so small that we don't take time to appreciate the beauty of them up close.
The second shoe in my study of shoes was one of my own. I was fascinated by a tear at the ball of the shoe, I also saw the opportunity to use masking tape again, used here for the texture of the rubber bottom rim of the shoe.
Im also kinda sad that I didn't have any WIP pictures of this piece.
also I didn't give too much thought to composition and shoe angle, so over all this is a very boring piece, but it is a simple drawing that holds up at a distance.
I recently did a short study of shoes and collage.
I started with this dark brown shoe. I mainly chose this shoe because it reminded me of someone special to me and the paper I had was brown.
I noticed that although the shoe was very dark brown, the highlights were more blue, which makes sense because blue and orange are complimentary colors and brown is just a dark orange.
here is where the collage aspect showed up, the inside of the shoe was a cream color so I decided to use masking tape which almost matched the color perfect for that space. You can also see here the blue being put in the highlights.
I decided that the black in the bg needed to be really black so i pushed really far!
final cropped image
here is a close up of the inside of the shoe where I added a small text detail to tell a story.
