L is for Loris

Ok, I think I've finally got the hang of this process. I now know how long each step takes, and I know that 2 weeks for each animal won't be a problem. I wasn't sure for a while there, but I've gained confidence this time around!

Here's the documentation of steps for Lauren the Loris:

the study

the sculpture

the drawing

the vector graphic

The whole point of the process is to transform and abstract the subject with each new medium. One key lesson I'm learning is the importance of new perspective.

Instead of sculpting the loris looking straight ahead, she's looking up. Instead of drawing the sculpture from the side, I looked down at it. And, this wasn't planned, but in the vector graphic, I think Lauren now looks as if she's hanging from the branches of a tree!

I'm excited, because I'm learning how to push the envelope a little more each time. This growth is partly dependent on planning, but it's also dependent on my willingness to let go and take chances. The latter is definitely a challenge for me.

Well, it's time to make this into a collage now. I'll post it up in a few days. =)
