For a Figure Drawing assignment we were asked to come up with several sequential ideas for our next project. Each idea for the sequential required least five poses and showed good dynamic action in the pose and be very expressive. I tried for several ideas showing action, from fainting to screaming. All of these pictures are in order of what I started to what I finished. I notice that the later pages seem to get better in defining the action and being more expressive. I tried several mediums such as colored pencils and pens. I found that Pens and Chinese Markers are great for sketching out potential poses in thirty second to a minute intervals. During sketches I realized that i tends to help not focus on detail and just make lines as simple as possible, but capturing the energy of the pose as well.

Well gotta start somewhere and that's what these three pieces are about. As a class assignment we were called to drawing five animals of our choosing and draw them as sequentials of at least five poses. I choose the otter, the caribou, the snow leopard, the snowy owl, and the wolf. Funny enough these are animals that can be found up north(where I am originally from) and I guess some nostalgia rose within me during this assignment. I really like how I captured the energy of each pose for each animal and kept the line strokes simple but effective.
