Figure Drawing Analysis
The importance of scale and proportion in drawing is so the piece can have overall balance and look realistic. I used dark thick lines to show volume, while using light thick lines to show where the light was hitting it. We did many warmup exercises to help us; one we did was gesture drawings. The timed ones helped us understand that only a few lines were need to show the movement of the body. The ones were were were supposed to take more time on helped us to work on proportion and balancing the differnent elements of the body. I liked using different medias because it allowed me to experiment with different materials. I think that experimenting with different medias helped my work because it allowed me to get darker with my values and be looser with my drawings. The struggles I had with this piece were, getting the body to look like it had form and mass and not just doing an outline. Overall I loved this activity and I think it helped me grow as an artist.
