Spent two more hours on my little skeleton today. I’m having a hard time with the hip because it’s just slightly tilted away from my viewing point. All of this is done on ebony/hb pencils – 6B.
After 1 hour
After 2 hours
We start new projects on Wednesday so I’m hoping to get at least this sketch done by then (along with two others that I haven’t even started yet!).
My professor, Anne, also went over some interesting artists that I would love to share with you.
Cindy Sherman: A photographer who focuses on the role of women in the traditional space
More Cindy Sherman
Kiki Smith: Focuses on humans as sacks of bodily fluids, focuses on deconstructing the body
Kitaj: Combines line and solid form
Howardena Pindell: African-American abstract mixed media artist
Magdalena Abakanowicz: Sculptor focused on WWII and oppression, using repetition to highlight how people can be perceived as non-people
I’ve started Drawing 1 this semester, and I have to say that I’m pretty intimidated by everyone in my class. Right now I’m working on a skeleton… not much to say as of yet except “I’m out of practice.”
More images to come as I work on the arm and on other projects.
