I've now tackled the second version of the same assignment (instead of tracing photos I used photos as a reference and/or made a skeleton from fantasy) .
I ended up making one from my imagination + what I've learned so far. It didn't end up so well though, so the next four pieces I made I made sure to reference from a photograph .
The way I decided to achieve this was through making a very rough skeleton, and whenever I was uncertain or felt like something was off, I moved my rough sketch on top of the photo and noted the difference and then tried to adjust this to the best of my abilities ! I tried my best to also make sure to use the joints as a reference point to one another. Meaning that I, for example, used the wrist to measure where the ankle would/could be.
This time I did not use the same person as a reference as the last post I made. This time I used google, after all, Google is your friend ! Although I am ashamed to say that I am not sure who the reference is, but I did find most of them on Pinterest :).
First Try: From Imagination.
Second Try: Ballet
Third Try: Martial Arts (?)
Fourth Try: Boxing/Martial Arts (?)
Fifth Try: Another Ballet Perhaps (?)
First try, which ened up very wonky. After this point I decided to use references !
