Compositions

I’ve included a sheet full of composition studies from movies as well as a comp of my own. I made mine rather abstract but it was meant to feel like downtown L.A. or what I could remember of it in my brief visit. Also, yes that is Empire Strikes Back!!

I did these doodles a few days ago at a coffee shop using my trusty ball point pen. One page is just mindless scribbles and the other I was doing some early development for an upcoming short film where a man’s arm is turned to machine! I know what your’e thinking “Yes, Greg we’ve seen that before,” but this time it will be different. For more organic and “animatey” something like the legendary Ryan Woodward mixed with myself. It’ll be months and months before official production starts but stay tuned folks!

Figure Drawing 2

Round 2 ding ding! I was back and this time just a little more experienced than before (I also had a better seat!). I decided to switch my medium from a mechanical pencil and sheets of copy paper to grey pastel paper and white/black conte sticks. I think that helped a ton and overall these had knock out improvements compared to last week. The ability to make broad elbow strokes not only saved…

So yesterday I attended my first figure drawing session since college and I’d have to say…I’m terrible. I had always been notoriously bad at this for as long as I can remember and “lo and behold” by not practicing I’m STILL bad hahaha….possibly the worst in that session. I’ve spent the bulk of my practice time on color and light and now it’s becoming pain stakingly obvious that I have I hole in my game but I am determined to fix this issue. So from now on I will attend figure drawing sessions once a week to focus on my many anatomy weaknesses ( hands, feet, face….everything) until I’m satisfied. Take a look at session 1!

Lot of choices I’m going to have to make soon so this painting was more of a reflection time than anything else. This was my sketch of the sky after my run in the morning. The grey rain clouds were beginning to reveal the light of the day. 

Greg Mitchell, His and her’s ferrari nig*&!
