Prompt: I have added in class model drawings focusing on light and shadow and my midterm, which was to draw fully colored fashion figures.

I’ve attached a couple of my in class model drawing, we focused on varying poses, as well as light and shadow, experimenting with tan paper, graphite, and highlighting using color pencil. The figure on the skateboard was a photograph exploration of light and shadow. The color piece featuring two figures is an exploration of fashion figures for a midterm assignment. I chose to explore the fashion figure, and juxtapose it with traditional fantasy figures, as both figures are unrealistic depictions of the female form which used frequently in illustrated media.
