Imaginative Figure Drawing Workshop #001 - Self Portrait As A Creature

Imaginative Figure Drawing Workshop #001 - Self Portrait As A Creature

For this Workshop, I invite you to reimagine yourself as a creature. It's up to you as to what creature that may be, but you must combine your own portrait with that of an animal or fictional creature.

You need only create the face / neck and the top of the shoulders - no body, unless you really want to go for it. Go for QUALITY, not quantity in this piece. Polish this drawing / digital painting up to the best of your abilities!

Some General Guidelines:
For those of you with your own process, feel free to ignore this part. But for those of you without a working method, you may find the following guidelines useful:

Part 1: Decide on a creature and do your Research

Decide what creature that you want to combine with your self portrait. This can be a real life animal or any fictional character.

Reference Resources:
  • As always, Google Image, Flickr, Pbase, and your own books or books from the library are all fair game as reference resources. Just be sure to not directly copy any copyrighted references that you find - you must significantly alter any reference image in order for it to be considered legally yours. Also be sure to look through some of your favorite artists as inspiration. Check through some of your favorite blogs or image sources to get your creative juices flowing.
  • If you have other resource sites that you would like me to link, please let me know.
Part 2: Ideation

Process:
Create a set of small, rough thumbnails in your sketchbook (traditional or digital) before embarking on any finished piece. Try to convey the mood and atmosphere of the piece before ever adding any details. Think of the light source, the mood which you want to convey and a background story for this morphed self-portrait and creature.

Project Considerations / Criteria:
  • No boring, fully front on views of the head without any sense of dynamism or expression! Give some tilt or twist to the head / neck to make the pose more interesting. Maybe even the head is in the process of speaking, giving a snarl or smile, in the middle of "lunch" (whatever that is) etc. Try to evoke a mood as much as fulfill the basic requirements of creating a morphed self-portrait and creature.
  • Consider a strong sense of lighting / chiarascuro. Look at the work of Caravaggio to get a strong sense of lighting. Note the clarity of the light source and the strong sense of design via lights and darks alone.
Media:
  • As always you can use the media of your choice - 2D Traditional or Digital.
  • Feel free to work in Black / White / Grayscale only or in full color.
Part 3: Final Drawing / Digital Painting
Once you have nailed down your concept and selected your best thumbnail, work up the linework for your piece and shade / paint it.

Thumbs up

Sounds real great. More info needed Rebecca. Is this a free workshop? Will it be taking place right Here via this forum? If the answer to all the above is YES, then all I can say is WOW.

Queensoul,

The workshop has officially opened, and a few brave souls have dared post already.
The thread should be a Sticky at the top. Hope to see you post!
