Line art Giger

October 13, 2010 By Paul Yeatman

Last night we began experimenting with pen and lines. After some warm up exercises we were instructed to begin to draw the photo we brought in for that purpose.

I had several as I was not sure what I wanted to draw. I had photos of a lion, a meerkat, a cicada, a beetle and some Giger sculptures.

After some initial thumbnails and experimentation I decided to draw the Nubian Queen. My reference image is a side on view from a book I have. After some more drawing when I got home I think the sculpture may be too skinny. So I am either going to a close up of it, or find some other biomechanical image to play with.

I’ll whack most of this under a cut when I get to a real computer.
