Scale Figure Explorations

I still haven't really developed a style that I like- I think that I need to find someone to emulate before I can turn them into my own

Suzanne asked us to take some earlier drawings and experiment with adding some scale figures to them- I am playing around with a couple of forms, mine tend to be highly stylized, they are in the order that I did them in, from the first figures I was messing with to the final figure- I think I like the last one the best, but it only seems to be working from a fairly frontal or rear view, making 3/4 view pretty hard for me- we'll see though

Scale Figure Examples

I found the first three of these through a search at ASAI. This first example is from an illustration by Stephanie Bower.
This next example is from an artist named Chen Wenjie.
Next we have some examples by Melissa Colson

This next example came off of a blog by Iain Stewart

This last example is from a blog called YKBK

Frustration Practice

After my massive frustration with the Coffee Shop drawings for Suzanne I got online and googled sketch tips, coming up with a bunch of different things, Above are my two favorite, one is a bowl and napkin and the other is the city of Nantes, France from a photograph I had.

Coffee Shop Drawings

Suzanne had us do some coffee shop drawings and none of them seemed to come out right, I don't know if it was the many distractions, but they just weren't coming together.

hit and miss

While these drawings weren't exactly off base, as far as relating to my inspiration images, the inspiration images weren't the greatest because this was a hard drawing to apply these principles to. In other words, the drawings nor the inspiration images were bad, they space and the style just didn't gel

Thumbnails of Mossman

Some quick Sketches of the Mossman building done for Suzanne.

Wood Project

For my inspiration for this 2x4 project I looked at the stain glass of Frank Lloyd Wright, The juxtaposition of geometrical shapes was very nice and used to create a dynamic feel. The lines on the side are for aesthetic and functional purposes- the longer line was used to set the depth of the cylinder, and the shorter line was added to help strengthen the visual power of the lines.

Just some sketches from around the studio that Suzanne had us do of some architectural details
