This is my first study.
I spent 30 minutes on it.
I was rushing it at first without thinking then I started to notice that the figure is bigger than the original. So I focused and corrected it as much as possible.
I didn't wanna spend more than 30 minutes therefor I did a lot of squinting at the end so I can get as much information as possible in a very short time.
There's emphasis of course mostly in the figure's torso. Economy in the wings, background and some parts of the figure. There's motion in his hand and the way he's leaning. Rhythm is filling the piece by the way the objects in the background are arranged, the way the figure is standing/sitting.
Spiral composition. There's a triangle but it's kinda breaking which explain the motion; the figure is planning to get up, the way he's leaning his head with one leg lying on the table. Or maybe there's no triangle at all!
There's balance for sure, contrast balance, emphasis balance and light and shadow.
I was thinking of all this while drawing it, but you might look at my study and notice that it's lacking most of those principles; Well I'm used to finish the piece by making sure they're all there.. which is not right! I will change this method in the next study.
Please any feedback would be helpful. I'm so excited that I'm doing this, I wanted to do it 6 years ago but I was busy with school!
