Following Krishna Sadasivam’s Mentor Experiment, assig. 2 “Understanding the Torso with the Help of a Flour Sack”, I’m taking it on as time permits. This is why I’m taking on the persona of a sloppy art student, late with work, and drawing on the fly. While learning concepts, you’ll see lots of rough stuff. Its not an excuse, its an attitude. LOL
I didn’t follow the original assignment order. For some, I drew various versions, and all are available for a quick peek, if you’re in a hurry, in a slideshow at the end of this post. I included them for perspective.
Kick – I drew 3 kicking poses with the flour sack. Here’s the one I liked. The silhouette kind of works, though it may be confused for someone dancing. Then again, kicking can be part dancing. The action line did the work, in my opinion.
Punch – I wasn’t too happy with this one, having concentrated on a front punch pose without thinking about the silhouette. That front punch pose can be seen in the slideshow at the bottom of this post. The line of action works ok here, but my proportions, and stance could use some work.
Bending over to pick up something – This pose works with both, line of action and silhouette. The flour sack worked in terms of bending over. The skirt does not obscure the silhouette. The thing over the mouth is supposed to be a hand. 🙂
And there you have it. Had lots of fun, drawing rough and fast, and learning from it. Speed highlights errors. Prepping this post took longer than drawing. I’d probably get a D, if not an F, from Krishna. LOL It gave me perspective while learning from a great pro. Hope you liked it. Thanks for dropping by, and have a great art time!
PS – Please look at the slideshow of all the images I wanted to post here. I uploaded even more images than show above, including additional work. WordPress goes only so far before it starts getting difficult to layout, etc.
