This week in Drawing we focused on depicting a character through the use if a descriptive text, since as illustrators if we are ever commissioned to design a character we will typically be given a short description to work from.
As part of our homework from last week we had to prepare 10 A2 sheets of paper with light coloured ink blots of various shapes and sizes.
In addition to this we were also given a list of images to collect an put into a mood board, here is mine below.
In the lesson we proceded to use said ink blots and mood board as guides to draw aspects of a character that had been described to us.
The description stated that the character had a long fox like face with a floppy hat that has a long rim and various feathers attached to it. I ended up drawing an actual fox but I rather like it.
It also stated that they had a flute or shepherd's pipe in one hand, I drew this rather cool flute that looked like it had been carved out of a stick.
It said that they had thing wrists with strings of cotton tied to their fingers with rose beetles on the ends.
It also siad they had some bamboo cages with chickens and pigeons in them. I draw this tied together cage so it looked like it had been roughly made :).
It also said that they wore pointy shoes with pom poms on the ends very similar to the ones greek guard wear.
I didn't manage to get a whole lot done as I couldn't draw anything i was happy with that often happens when I see other peoples works and think they are better then mine. it's really a stupid way to think of it, I should know better then to let that kind of thing get to me.
Well thats all for now, thanks for reading :)
