I don’t normally like people seeing my working process but I thought I should bite the bullet and give a little run down of how I work.
The brief for this project was-
“Unravel this unbelievable undertaking understanding that underachievment is unacceptable
Respond in any way you like – posters, book, animation, zine, paintings, notice we want more than one please – underpinned by appropriate research”
I researched various “un” words (dictionary, check) writing down ones that I felt I could respond to and jotting down any ideas that came to mind. One of the ideas was “Unexplained” where I thought I would catalogue different unexplained phenomena. I narrowed this down to the one that stuck in my mind most right from the start, Bigfoot/Yeti.
After finding some appropriate source material I did a quick sketch to get the idea roughed out.
I liked elements of this but the hair didn’t look good at all (originally I was thinking of it having an emo style haircut but this looked terrible) so I made a more detailed sketch of the head.
I’m happy with how this looks apart from a few minor things so tomorrow I’m going to start drawing it out onto a piece of A2 cardboard. All these are techninal drawing pen on photocopy paper if anyone is interested. Lastly today, I did a couple of quick sketches to work out whether hairy type would look ok. I’m undecided really.
