1 Be­yond re­al­ity

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

One of the ex­er­cises that I of­ten do dur­ing my ob­ser­va­tional draw­ing ses­sions is stir things up for my­self, just to turn the ex­cite­ment dial a notch or two higher. I ex­per­i­ment with my draw­ings and go be­yond the re­al­ity of the mo­ment. Some­times I ex­ag­ger­ate the ten­sion in the fig­ure to lev­els that are not achiev­able by the hu­man body, or push the ex­ist­ing sce­nario into a dif­fer­ent world of phys­i­cal laws. Purists might con­test that this isn’t ob­ser­va­tional draw­ing – and per­haps they’re right – but I’m cer­tainly hav­ing fun!
