ooook, its been a while since i updated my last book and i've been doing a lot of different stuff so i decided to start this new book (yea zebz, i really did, whoda thunk it? thanks for the pressure by the way . anywho, my intention with this thread is to show my sketchbook as a whole without really omitting a lot of information. i do a lot of different things that kinda make my books pretty spastic. in this post, i've got a few character-esque kind of drawings, kind of along the lines of portraiture...and i've also got some sketches, ideas, notes, and drawings that are part of my senior project that will be used for my senior show in may. anyway, here goes:
these are all no refs by the way.
ballpoint. needs a lot more work...
pencil. distorted and skewed.
pencil. decided to draw best part of winter...which is of course ski bunnies. her eye's kinda f'd up
this is all stuff that is going into my senior project. BASICALLY, my senior project consists of designing/illustrating a set of tarot cards. i chose to do this due to the themes and mysticism involved in tarot, not specifically to perform it. its been a learning experience and development so far, seeing as how 1. i dont know a lot about tarot 2. its gone from a very graphic and ornamental style with mathematical influences to a more calm repetitive drawing style while still utilizing the mathematics aspects, which i'm working with now. anyway, heres kind of a chronological progression showing details of the processes i've been going through:
mathematics, compass, and pattern studies
compiled stuff from various pages (to cut down on bandwith)
this is wehre i kind of broke into the ideas that i'm concentrating on now
hi-tec pen. unfinished page
hi-tec pen. leaves.
hi-tec pen. bricks.
hi-tec pen. leaves in the well.
well, thats all i've got for now, i'll try and update again soon, been spending a lot more of my time in the sketchbook lately so i should have some more stuff to post soon enough. feel free to leave any and all comments or crits you have. a lot of this isn't entire thoughts, so hopefully its not confusing, if it is...whatever. heh.
