For session 14, after our initial quick poses we were encouraged to draw with an emotion in mind. Including Anger- the drawing with the black halo. Nervousness- the drawing in which Jane is curled up in an arm chair and lastly Power. The poses and facial expressions certainly helped in drawing, but i feel i could have been more artistic with communicating these emotions.
Session 15 was a very interesting one. Someone made the request that we did quick poses all session and having just watched Psycho we knew exactly where to starts after completing the warm-up quick poses. To continue with a theme of dynamism and animation, Jane agreed to hold a series of poses that together created an action, paying homage Hitchcock the first action was a stabbing one.
As the session progressed we tried drawing at different speeds, having completed one animation sequence with 2 minutes for each pose, we sped up the pace with the second one having only a minute for each. You can see where I came unstuck in the first drawing only managing an arm and a shoulder at first. With more gestural shapes I managed to become quicker as the exercise continued. We tried other movements, this next charcoal one was Jane shying away as though something was being thrown at her.
Session 16 saw us going the polar opposite to all the quick poses the week before, this time we were to do a single pose for the entire session. I shrunk the scale of Jane into my page in order to incorporate the environment, I think maybe that was the wrong decision. It should not have been quite so small, I could not get any detail in Jane's features and she was just too small in the space.
