A Panoramic Sketch of shoppers in a shopping mall
|With iPad Pro, Apple Pencil & Procreate|
During the course of dinner, I drew the busy scene in front of me, with some personal interpretations and capturing some likeness as well. I simply populated the entire sketch with people coming and going, usually from memory. The trick is to remember (as much as possible) the shape that constitute to the figure, pose and so forth. Every figure has its unique stance, pose and the sum of it is the shape or silhouette we register in our mind, more or less with or without the details. Some knowledge of anatomy would be helpful, certainly the ability to draw the proportion is good too.
Overall I am satisfied with the result of this sketch. The composition was balanced with the strategic placements of the darks creating a rhythm leading the eyes from one point to another and back again. The white spaces also create spots of resting areas for the viewer's eyes but also place certain emphasis on specific areas of the sketch/ drawing. Sometimes not much planning was made during the process of sketching, most of the time many decisions were made somewhat intuitively. Draw more think less.... hmmmm.
