My final silhouettes for illustrations. I will apply colour. If you know Of Junya Watanabe, you will know of his extreme catwalk productions incorporating bizarre headwear. Here i have taken influence from his autumn/winter 2008 headwear and wrapped the sculptural heads in zips, which was also a running theme in my collection in dresses and trousers...

Drawing 1: we were given a maximum of 15 minutes to sketch the figure. Each aisle was placed seperately around the room, to provide completely differnent views of the model. The light which fell on the figure was all altered after every pose and position the model took. To create the sketch, i combined two methods one of which was 'Blind Contour' drawing. This is a very effective method in life drawing. This is when you don't look at the your page at all (covering it with another page if neccessary) and drawing the figure. The technique is to follow the outline of the figure very very slowly. As your eyes almost trace the figure, your pen or pencil moves with it. It is incredibly effective. Here i used a black fine line pen.
For this drawing we were again, given 15 minutes to produce a watercolour painting of the model. We were restricted to using only water and the sam colour paint to create the figure and all shadowing.
This is an example of blind contour drawing. I originally drew the outline of the figure using this method then looked at the page and went from here, altering sections to a more accurate proportion and adding shading.
I found this a very interesting excersise. We were given newspapers and magazines to create a collage image of the model, once again using the same materials to create shadow.

A fabric board created last year by myself and two other design students. This board was to express the knitwear range of fabrcis for the store Diesel.
