I’m studying Illustration now! Here’s some of the stuff I’m doing for class!
We’re buried with work here, but at the same time learning a lot!
Here are some anatomy studies:
We’re taught the importance of copying to learn. Unless you’re copying poses, for example, it’s very hard to learn how to do them from memory later - even the most skilled artists copy and use references.
We also get projects, one was to make an illustration imitating the style of an artist, I chose Ken Wong. We would design the image, but we had to try to get close to their style. I had to do it with colour pencils, so I chose to try use similar colours and thematics. We have to learn to be versatile in case we’ll work in a studio for example, to adapt to different styles, so it’s a very interesting exercise.
We do A LOT of sketches for every project, here are some:
And here’s the final result!
I’m pretty proud of this one! I’ve been drawing more than ever.
And here’s a punk goat I made for a shirt design:
Overall I’m pretty happy with these studies despite the stress and neverending work!
