  2. I particularly like how you've anthropomorphised (!?) the high-heel shoe into some kind of huge-mouthed face thing - I'd like to see you evolve that drawing - it's like the heel is this skinny little neck, which pushes the whole head forwards, sort of like some geriatric pelican! Hmmm - but what does its body look like, I wonder...

  4. Hi Nat and welcome to CGAA,
    glad to see you diving in there on this project, the anthropomorphic has more than a hint of Mick Jagger and Steve Tyler about it. In regards to pushing the drawing don't just limit yourself to anphropomorphism you can take the idea you have generated and create a whole host of creatures/ characters that share the same basic DNA. From the simple act of creating a face from a show you may evolve 30 different ideas.

    Good luck

  5. ... hey Nat - a cautionary note; I'd like you to use the objects on the 2 sheets exclusively - i.e. your tutor is not too sure about the football/fag ends/wine bottle additions - limitation breeds creativity; obviously, the expectation is that your final designs will be a million miles away from those original humdrum objects, but I'm interested in seeing the evolution, so don't fall into the trap of only profiling your successes or the stuff you feel confident about - show me everything (but stick to the brief! It's a discipline you need to get your head around asap).

  7. Oh realy, it does. And the other thing that I undertood about this project is that you don't realy have to follow the exact shapes if you want. You can deform them in any way that you like.

  9. Hey Nat - yes, the legs are allowed; now, revisit the shoe-head - you ARE allowed to keep simplifying that shape, adding detail to it, making it more organic - the objects are starting points; drawings can extend from them, you can hybridise them by taking sections and, via layout paper, recombining those sections; your A1 page might have collaged elements for this reason - also - a word of boring blogging advice; instead of adding new images to an already existing blog post via editing, make a new post each time you upload, and that way all blog watchers will be alerted via their dashboards etc; when you slip in a new image to an existing post, the addition isn't flagged up; uploading work to new posts as and when also demonstrates the chronology of your pipeline too, so it's more truly reflective of the timescale etc.

    Oh - and The Thing is a classic, but it was a remake of the 1951 version - which is still very effective and worth a look...
