For our first assignment, to get to know the others in our class, we were told to draw a full body image of them and surround them with images of their favorite things. This i found more stressful that i thought i would; due to the pressure of drawing someone in front of them, especially someone you’ve just met. I found that there was a big pressure to draw well so that may mistakes in the technical drawing won’t make the person i’m drawing think that i purposefully drew them in that way.
Even though it was a bit stressful i found that it was quite an effective and interesting way to get to know someone, and i now find the concept of being a street cartoonist quite appealing!
Below shows some more focused portraits which i created with more time that the one above. These all are quite stylistic and don’t have much realism, however i’m slowly improving on getting the balance between stylized and realism.
