Design Process

In my 2D class, aka "tooty class", we did an object exploration drawing three different objects using only pen and ink. Pen and ink meaning a bottle of ink and pen nibs which I had never used before. These were to be line drawings - only lines, hatching, and cross-hatching.

After we explored our objects, we chose one to expound on. I chose a toy airplane. Then we did five concept drawings of our object (pictured here).  In class we had a silent critique, where we walked around to other's sketch books, looked over their concepts, and wrote down our favorite and least favorite stating why. Then from that feedback we chose one concept to redraw on a cold press board for the final project to turn in. 

Which do you think I chose?

wow---I like them all. I like the patchwork quilt effect of the plane flying over the fields, and the hand holding the toy plane, too

I'm so impressed. Great stuff. I like the last two. :)

It's hard to know which one YOU'd choose, but I think an elaboration on Number Four (the plane and its shadow) would be pretty cool.

That said... they're ALL excellent, Jess.

Either #2, or #4. I like the hand in the drawing. But, I share Buck's like of the shadow.

Toss-up!

You should see some of my drawings. Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!!!

I like #4. Do tell!

Christina LMT said...

2 and 3 are my favorites!

See, even among you 6 commenters there is a range of opinions! For me it was a tossup between #2 & #3. My teacher really liked #4 with an exaggerated shadow. Several of my fellow students remarked that the aerial scene was too busy. Ultimately, I followed my heart and went with #3 the aerial scene anyway. The final draft is turned in right now but when i get it back, I'll post it for sure!

I vote door #2!
