This week was all about perspective, buildings, and architecture. Normally, I prefer to draw human figures, animals, or any sort of character, but trying my hand at buildings was nice. It was a good opportunity to work on balance, proportions, and geometric forms. I have to say, those can be much more convenient subjects to draw when we’re moving around or visit new cities. Usually, it will be easier to sit anywhere and draw an urban landscape than ask somebody to sit still for hours as a live model 🙃. I imagine how drawing fantasy-inspired themes could act as a powerful inspiration to write a story and create entirely new worlds from scratch.
In Days 63 and 64 I was supposed to use a piece of printed paper (such as a letter). Unfortunately, the ones I had at home didn’t seem suitable for this kind of work. That’s why I decided to use a filled-out exercise sheet I had completed some time ago. Anyway, it was a printed sheet of paper! The idea of that work was to encourage the students to draw on any kind of paper. We don’t need to have a blank canvas in order to start doing something on it.[Read more…] about Pen Drawing in German (Week 9) – Eine Ruine wird zum Fantasy-Palast
