Ignore the ‘(1)’ at the end, if this is the second or third drawing workshop we have done. I just cannot recall.
We draw everyday as illustrators (or well, we’re suppose to… or I do anyway), but I have learnt a lot about collaborating with others in this drawing workshop. Not being afraid to express or join your idea or creation with another person will not stop or differ you in any way. I found out that, while i was looking at my group or partners drawing methods or how they do the set rules, that anyone can express them in a completely different way from mine.
I tend to be an illustrator who likes to spend their time drawing in detail or sticking with one style, but I found that, the most enjoyable thing of today was just smearing a pen across the page of imitating the shape of a brick, or not paying too much heed to the things we look at. While bearing in mind, that I did have to make some consideration towards why I have made those marks, I aimed to at least capture the shapes of those objects or the things I was looking at.
I did find a method that I enjoyed the most, which was the double toned colours and the continuous drawing. With continuous drawing, it can limit you to how you move the pen or tool across whatever you’re drawing on.
