Late 2018 I took a break from assignments and did a couple of projects to focus more on anatomy. I also had to greatly reduce the amount of work I did due to injury.
I took what I learned about gathering references and figure drawing and applied it to Inktober for 2018. I did a witch theme and added subgenres like horoscopes and natural elements. I used a direct reference for the figure and created outfits based on inspirational images I found for each. It was really fun.
100 Portrait Study 12/2018-10/2019
I started a portrait study challenge that ended up taking about a year, but I got it done! Each was based from an image found from various royalty-free sites. The last 10 were master studies of Gerard Van Honthorst. I wanted to practice a variety of faces and accessories. I used the same basic diagram I learned in term 2.
Towards the end of 2019 I did a couple of ink drawings to start Inktober, but I ended up not finishing and took a break from drawing in 2020.
