The work of the past few days

I’ve come up with some more ideas for my portrait. Particularly experimenting with towers in different ways. I have looked at two books to do with architecture. Sky high: Vertical Architecture by Chris Abel and the Seventy Architectural wonders of our world edited by Neil Parkyn. From this I did some very simple sketching and from that created some more images in Photoshop.

were some initial rough sketches from which Ive gone into Photoshop and generated some more alternate ways of using the towers idea. (for those who have only just started following... more information on this previous post.)

Here are Tuesdays life drawings. (I apologise for the terrible image quality)
The first, I thought came out well and i didn't have any spare time at the end either. I spent a lot of time getting the left arm right. (if that makes sense)

The second picture was much more difficult as there were less reference points. virtually the whole back was redrawn several times, but i think i rescued it in the end.

The last drawing was a quick 5 minute drawing. I think it came out reasonable.

This blog update has taken what seems like forever to do (gathering all the images / copying converting / down sizing for the internet), so i haven't gone in to as much detail is i would normally have on writing.

I think i need to focus on coming up with other
completely different ideas.


  1. Hi Ethan! Well done for getting all those images on! I am looking forward to seeing what other ideas you can come up with...I think the 'wearing a different mask for different circumstances' might also be worth investigating further, even if it doesn't come to anything. See you tomorrow! Jackie

  2. Tomorrow at 3pm in Lecture Theatre 1, Tracy Ashmore is doing a second session on structuring arguments for academic writing and creative research; it will last an hour, giving you a bit of a breather before the life-drawing class; sorry for the short notice, but it was only confirmed at the end of last week. If you could assist me in getting word out to your classmates, I'd be very grateful. Cheers!
