Some examples of this week's assignment from the Schoolism gesture course I'm doing. This week's lesson was Extrapolation, explained by Alex Woo as: "The process of seeing beyond the surface of what's in front of you."

In my previous post you saw some studies of foxes that were part of the previous homework assignment. This lesson I had to use my chosen animal, the fox, and focus on drawing the model as if he or she was a fox. The big challenge is to keep the original gesture in the drawing without loosing the spirit of a fox, you do not want your drawing to feel like a guy dressed up as a fox.

These are just some of the examples of what I did for this assignment. As you can see I have been using film stills as an inspiration.

Red Fox Studies

Recent homework from the Gesture course on Schoolism. Apart from our usual model drawing assignments, this time we also had to research an animal of choice. We are to study the anatomy of one animal so that we are able to draw it without using reference.

As you might have guessed, I chose a Red Fox for this assignment. This is only a selection of the many sketches I did, both on loose sheets and in my sketchbook. One of the many great things about this course it how much it makes me sketch. I have started a new sketchbook early october -one of those thick old-fashioned a4-sized hardbacks-  and it is already filled halfway through! Mostly with gesture sketches and café drawings done for the gesture course. 

All of these are 100% traditional: ink, (Pentell Pocket Brushpen, Pentell Sign, Pitt Brush Pen) and color pencil on paper.

Watched Anchorman the other night, did this sketch of the bear at the end. (That Schoolism course is ruining me, I can't watch a film without pausing it to sketch interesting poses anymore!)
