it was actually for our course project for this semester..for the task, we need to prepare a portfolio about figure drawing and a final drawing..i actually kinda enjoyed this course because we got to do lot's of drawings in class, even some real life drawing - but no, we got a fully clothed model instead..LOL..felt like so long since i last did some drawing for real huh..but yeah there were also some tense especially while making the portfolio with a very limited time..
so for the portfolio, we need to do some *actually a lot* sketches & drawings - specifically on figure drawing..so expect nothing but some revealing figure drawing..lol..but sorry i cannot post those drawings here because it was just too revealing for this blog - just wanna keep the decency of this blog (LMAO)..using some media like pencil, charcoal & pastel..& in the end, i've chosen to use soft pastel for my final drawing..
& the final drawing was actually need to be made and completed in a 3 hour session under the observation from some examiner - for the technique & etc..kinda horrifying huh..but in the end nobody really finished up their drawing in that session *except 1girl who came with her drawing already halfway done..lol*..
workin on the brighter & lighter colors
in the very last minutes of the session~
btw the final drawing must be of a craftsman working on a traditional craft.. we actually need to take the picture of the craftsman by ourselves & pick the best angle for the drawing..but we was just so short of time & didn't get to visit any craft centre..so of course in the end, internet do the wonder..thanks to Google Image, this is the pic i came out with..lmao!
& this is my final outcome..see..i didn't copied the whole thing, made some adjustment just to make it simpler & easier to draw..lol..& also to give a great focus on the craftsman himself *lame excuses*..& i am also not really a fan of realistic drawing & actually tried to give some Expressionist feeling to it by forming the figure somewhat like The Scream - but without losing the realistic feeling to it..not sure if i excelled in that..lol..but im pretty satisfied with what it turned out to be :)
& we also need to mount the drawing and frame it with glass..i chose a cream colored mounting board & a solid dark wood with gold line frame for the framing..seriously i've spent somewhat like an hour *maybe more!* picking the frame! not only to consider the color but also the size & most importantly, the price..huhu..& it cost more because i asked for the non-reflective a.k.a non-glare glass for a better view..but i think it's all worth :)
ready to be submitted
so what do you think about my new drawing? i named it Tukang Wayang Kulit a.k.a The Wayang Kulit Craftsman, because what else can be a better name than the explicit details about it..lol..& if you are wondering what is Wayang Kulit, it is a traditional puppet shadow play which is pretty common to the Southeast Asia Culture..it is known as Wayang Kulit in Malaysia & Indonesia with the word Wayang is a javanese word which means "shadow"..in Malaysia, it is most significant in the east coast especially Kelantan..just search for the word on the net & you'll find lots of information about it..lol
me with the final artwork :)
& yeah i know, only after it was framed *completely sealed at the back* i realized i didn't put my signature on it..T_T..so i got my signature signed on the back instead -_-..so thats it..pretty good for a drawing which was done in only about 3 days *just few hours a day & mostly just doing some touch up for a better result..lol* huh..wonder when will i be making my another masterpiece *not even that mastered..haha*..till then, peace out :)
