One Month of Progress as a New Artist
My project was oriented around improving my artistic skills in areas of drawing that I was not familiar with. The style of art that i really started to focus on throughout the project was manga art, “a style of Japanese comic books and graphic novels, typically aimed at adults as well as children.”
I started this project watching tutorials on how to get a better understanding of anatomy and perspective, these are the two main aspects of perfecting 2D art. My beginning sketches were done with sharpie and only took a couple seconds each. This way I could start understanding the basic shapes within human anatomy and then out those shapes in perspective. Throughout the project I simply continued to refine these ideas. alongside this i studied the way clothes lay on a figure, specific aspects of anatomy such as mouths, eyes and hair. At the end of this project I’m happy with the way it turned out and a plan on continuing this practice in the future.
