Alex Hillkurtz shares how to create a composition with depth using architectural illustration
Composition is the foundation of all illustration, especially architectural sketches. That's why we should pay attention to how we place our elements in space before drawing them.
In this tutorial, storyboard artist Alex Hillkurtz (@alexhillkurtzart) explains how to use two techniques give compositions dynamism and lift sketches to another level. Get your pencil and paper, and let's go!
Hi, I've chosen robin due to it's cute round body :)
I'm happy with the final result but I think his head should be bit more narrow.
@artblue & @miguelon thank you guys!
I love the end picture, it's like another dimension where living creatures are made out of materials.. wood and paper :)
I love the way you created the wings and that you used the drawing of the wings to guide yourself for the construction of them on the actual bird. The result is lovely well done :)
@mm_kozerska yes the head usually needs to be smaller in the skeleton so when you cover it, it doesnt look so round. Make sure you look at lots of photos of robins in from all angles, it helps.
@cadabullos @lu_diaz thank you <3
