Classes are done for the year! All I have left to work on is some final papers. But as far as studio classes go, I am DONE with work. This is my latest piece from drawing for Illustration. Our assignment was to draw a gargoyle in an architectural setting. Now, I did a lot of research on gargoyles for this project, and they can be just about anything. They can be dogs, and lions, and bats, goblins, dragons, and chimeras. They were originally invented as primitive gutters. They were designed as water-spouts that channel water out their mouths and away from the edges of the stone cathedrals to prevent erosion.
I did a lot of thumbnails for this because I wanted to come up with something interesting. Once my idea was set in stone, I used sheets of tracing paper to turn rough compositional sketches into a fully developed sketch with all of the perspective worked out. Then I worked from background to foreground rendering.
