Vis Com: Experimenting with different media

Today's lesson was Visual Communication with Vicky Wake. At the minute we're doing a unit on drawing, and we're trying to develop our own personal fashion illustration styles by looking at different illustrators to inspire us and experimenting with different media to see which ones we like best and how they make the same image look different. We were set a task to pick out an image of a face, and I chose a picture of Kate Moss circa 1990. We had to draw the same face 5 times, using different media each time to show how it can change the way an image looks. Me being a slow coach, I only got one finished, but I will post the others when I catch up. Anyway, thought I'd do a quick post to show you what I'd got done.

I've been trying to do some other practise on drawing faces in my spare time, too. I did this one of Vanessa Paradis a few weeks back:

I'm currently working on another piece too, of Sky Ferreira. This one is going to be very realistic and detailed, but it isn't finished yet. I'll post it when it is. If anyone wants to see any more of my art, you can take a look at my art blog on tumblr, and follow me if you have tumblr too. I post fashion illustration work on there but also my own personal art projects and work that I've done on fine art courses in the past. Click here to take a look.
