Photoshop Lesson 1

First developmental digital sketch for Anatomy Brief. Also my first time using Photoshop and I couldn't be happier with the results. It is a work in progress so keep your eyes peeled for more.

Life Drawing

my apologies to Phil for the poor quality/lighting of the pictures.

Figure Study 1

25 min life drawing

First time I've really put pencil to paper in almost a year. I am quite happy with this result. Having said that I do regret not paying more attention to her right leg which appears to be woefully short although the rest of the proportions seem to be roughly correct.

Figure Study 2

Study of me by everyone else. roughly 25 mins

Figure Study 3

20 min life drawing

CGAA Unit 1 Anatomy 2011/12


(Giraffa camelopardalis)

 Named as such for having once been mistaken for being the hybrid offspring of a camel and a leopard, not to difficult to see where they were coming from there.

The Giraffe can grow to up to 6metres in height making it the tallest animal on the planet, its 2metre long neck contains only 7 vertebrae which is the same amount as a human has. And it has an 18 inch long tongue

What a fool I was then,  not to have noticed the Giraffe climb inside the telepod with me. Standing inconspicuously in the corner of the 5ft high pod, blending in flawlessly with my giraffe pattern wallpaper... if only I had listened to my interior designer and got the Zebra pattern instead.



... the transformation has already begun.
