Art School Term 1 Submission
1.1: Photoshop for Production
Assignment 1: Pen Control
Admittedly, I really took my time with this task; I wanted to ensure that before I moved on to the next task I was able to confidently execute these exercises.
As I will be studying on this course fulltime, alongside other learning material, I want to progress only when I know I have completed the work to the best of my current ability.
I feel I did ok here, and having spent a lot of time practicing these exercises, I feel I have more control of my pen and am able to draw from the shoulder more confidently. With that said, I need to be more confident when committing to drawing a line, as there are some wobbles throughout, and some flicks at the start due to underconfident execution of the lines. I also have a tendency to over shoot my lines; this is something I would like to work on moving forwards.
I found the circles very challenging initially, however, once I loosened up, I was able draw with more confidence. Though, I will continue to practice this exercise, as the circles are still quite wobbly.
As for the pen pressure exercise, the same can be said, I need more practice as there are some bubbles and wobbles.
With that said, compared to my initial attempts, and though the work is not perfect, the practice paid off.
I will now move on to colour matching.
