Life Size Drawing

Drawing life size had many challenges in its self. For my first life size drawing I am proud of myself. It looked different on the ground compared to being taped on the wall, but I can see improvement in the smaller details of my drawing compared to day one. I really enjoyed this project. The next time I try it again, I won't do it on the ground and I will make my drawing more proportional.

figure drawings

This is the second time I have drawn figure drawings. The first time I learned to draw figure drawings was in Art 1. Watching the videos before practicing helped give me a new technique on how to make my drawings better and to help me give my drawing a realistic proportion and body shape. Drawing our figure drawings on the IPads were a lot of fun and was much easier than what I expected. The lines were able to flow and the drawings turned out good.

full body portrait (before)


This is my first full body portrait. It is also the first time I had drawn in charcoal. This project was frustrating because it was hard to get my drawing proportional. I have learned for the next time to draw out the proportions first instead of starting from the head and working my way down.

self portrait

1.This was the first time I have done a self portrait and it was fairly difficult. I am glad that we were able to practice drawing individual facial features and learned how to make it proportional to the face. It helped me make my drawing more realistic instead of animated. This has helped me improve my techniques and has given me more confidence to try more realistic drawings.
2.I was very motivated during this project because love portrait drawings. I was excited to learn how to draw facial features correctly and with an easier method. My willingness to learn different techniques helped me a lot. My drawings became more realistic and the proportions were almost exact.
3.I am very happy with my final product because it is my first time drawing a more realistic self portrait. Throughout the project I learned more and I will be able to put it towards other projects.
