Winter Break

Finished my first semester at Ringling - now I'm back at home and doing more cafe sketching.  These are some things I've been aiming to keep in mind and interchange every time I draw.
  • Things overlapping and twisting the from creates depth and interest
  • Check silhouette for clear depiction of the pose
  • Exaggerate the silhouette to make it more clear and interesting if it's too contained
  • We use shapes to animate, so think about the most basic shape breakdown
  • Think about strong, bold shapes
  • Don't forget perspective
  • Remember that when cafe sketching, we are not just drawing people, but people doing something
  • Eat your dinner first, then you can have your dessert
  • Sight measure
  • Draw negative shapes too
