I haven’t been able to access my blog for a while so here is a summary of what I have done. I started working on electronic drawing on my laptop. I have doodled before, but never done anything more serious, so after researching programs I fiddled around with them. Because of this, different lyrics have different art styles from different programs or are on paper, but all together it looks pretty neat.
What is your inquiry question or project?
My inquiry project is drawing a set for the song Everything at Once by LENKA. It’s a bizarre and fun song that I can get lost in easily and that has a format perfect for drawing people in different poses and expressions are the main things I want to focus on.
What challenges have you faced in it? How have you overcome them?
Time and my perfectionism are my two large issues. I always want to work on it but always prioritize something else, and I nitpick everything to the point where nothing gets done. Essentially, my progress is being held back because of my own stubbornness. These are issues I have been working on not just for this project, so the pace has picked up a fair bit from the start as my confidence in the project grows and my other work shrinks.
What are your next steps?
At this point I mainly need to focus on just sitting down and drawing. I have enough references and a basic plan, so all that’s left is continuing the execution. Over spring break when I am not focused on other school work I think I will be able to accomplish a lot and end up with a nice finished piece.
For my inquiry I am working on drawing a set for this song. I might post pictures but right now I think I can still improve them so I am going to leave them for now. The goal is to work on posing, expressions and hands because hands are impossible to draw.
