1st and 2nd: life drawing class
3rd: from mind
4th: mind and reference used for most of the props and cloths, aswell as hands and a bit for the stance.
I´m trying to get this done right, but i think i´m still not there. If i should put everything i know into a drawing it would take me a lot of time, uhmmm. But anyway now i understand that the sketches from mind are like benchmarks to see what is my actual level, and what do i need to improve more to reach my goal, so that i can focus on that. This week i worked with concepts, trying to get interesting concepts to draw. I find out that i usually just doodle on a subject and then draw whatever my mind anchors to faster. I start throwing random lines and then try to see ideas in them. But this limits me a lot when trying to come up with interesting and original ideas, cause it´s hard to concentrate on both drawing and concepting at the same time. I still think that it´s good to use some unpredictable method of creation, but it must work in a freamework of pre-thought ideas. I managed to do this in the skecth from mind+immag i think, even if i didn't manage to convey the concept i had pre-though. So this is something i will work on the next week i think. Along side with studying more hand and head anathomy and a bit of gesture...=)
