Life Drawing Class: Week 11

The main focus in today's life drawing class is action displayed as key frames which would come in handy when making animations. We started the lesson off some poses of Francis for 2- 3 mins each.

To help us understand keyframes, we are to draw Francis in every movement between 4 mins and less. To make this look a bit clearer for each pose, I've draw some poses in red and blue pencils.

This method is used again for Francis sitting on a chair in various angles for 8 -10 mins. I've also introduced a black pen to highlight objects that would appear stationary from the beginning to the end of the action.

Lastly, to finish the lesson, we are to focus a specific area or the whole body for 20 mins. My main intention for this piece was to focus on the hands with the whole body included. The hands however, appeared a bit tricky as the fingers overlap each other. I'm quite happy with today's keyframing exercise :D
