Our latest assignment for my drawing class was to draw an interior using 2-point perspective. I decided to go with Alice in Wonderland. The piece had to be 18″x24″ and done in pencil. I needed my vanishing points to be pretty far off the page, so I ended up extending the paper with “wings” taped to my desk, and making a long straight edge by taping two together. (I really should break down and buy a yard stick).
As I worked on the project, Alice evolved quite a bit. My initial sketches were a little too vixen-like, and eventually I ended up with a much more youthful Alice. I was also reminded that I need to work on my figure drawing a lot more.
At this point, I decided to go with a darker look for the drawing. There will be a lot of detail and shading work from here on out.
Here you can really see the change in Alice.
