Best Scene Titanic

I believe this is one of the greatest romantic scenes in a movie. Its cheeky but it doesn't "over do it". I love the facial expressions of Leonardo DiCaprio. Now that I look back at the movie Rose looks like a pervert because he looks way too young. Regardless of that fact the lighting and the cuts are amazing. In the beginning when Rose is in front of Jack starting to strip they immediately cut to a shot from the back (pictured as my first drawing).

first scene: Rose has stripped. You can see Leonardo's shocked reaction in front of her.
Second scene: Close up of Rose looking at Leonardo. (with a lot of confidence i should say)
Third scene: Medium shot of leonardo looking at Rose again
Fourth scene: Rose goes to lie down to position herself.

Fifth scene: Leonardo directs Rose into an aesthetically pleasing postion to recreate her in.

Can we all have personal nude models to inspire from? I know Terry Richardson does and Helmet Neuton once had many at an abundance. 

Week 10 - Expressionist Drawing Techniques

In my last post about proportions I drew this model very slim and flattering. 
I feel as though these sharp strokes suit her vibe a bit more as she was a bit androgynous.

LOL i had fun with this one. When do i ever make hands when i don't have to?
Its all about beautiful ugly mistakes and I made the model look like an beautiful organic alien who just happens to be pregnant. Believe it or not this is kind of what i thought of her. Model from the back but an unexpected bump in the front.

my expressionist scribble technique. 3 different perspectives.
Its kind of humorous and awfully intriguing. 
Maybe because my thoughts and my drawings generally tend to be polar opposites.

Best 3 "first" expressionist drawings

I do remember being told to hand in our top 3 of this style. One man...various techniques.
Also, I would also like to add that I'm glad I did this in charcoal and not pencil it just has a much more dynamic effect than pencil ever could. Sadly, because i'm not familiar with the medium there is minor smudging on all of them. 

technique used - hard THICK strokes

medium to long strokes

Its amazing how the change of stroke could immediately make the character look much more caring and warm.

I love this the best although this picture does not give it justice.
I love that it almost has a graffiti quality to it.
I used 3 "long potatoes" to create a more unified look.

Week 8- Model Drawing Proportions

Not too sure about this week...if its meant to be "exaggerating" proportions or drawing them accurately.
I included both.

the model is slightly elongated here to emphasize her slenderness
