Addition to the last post. Two more illustrations from the illustration course.
The first picture is a character based on my own personality…sort of. Acrylics on paper.
The second picture I made for the news article below, which is about vandalism on the “King’s trees” in Oslo. Just for the fun of it, I threw in some references to Game of Thrones. Because I wanted to! Pen, acrylics and photoshop.
The first two weeks at school consisted of drawing portraits of a model half the day, and the second half drawing self portraits.
I mentioned the oil pastels in my first post (with the self portrait), and that it was instructive to something I’m not that comfortable with. For example, the first self potrait down on the left side, turned out to be my favourite.I think it has something extra. And maybe it captures a part of me that I’m not so much familiar with? I used 10 minutes on it and with the oil pastels you can’t make any corrections. So in the future, I’m going to continue doing things, once in a while, that I don’t like, because it might turn out more interesting.
This weeks course at school was photography, emphasizing documentation of art work. I have leared more about using a camera in general, and the tricks to get good documentation. Really useful!
