Homework: Foreshortening

This was the foreshortening homework.  With the exception of the skeleton (who I did at the Halloween shop) all of them were done from the 2nd floor overhang at the Crane Center (the "deck" thing).  I happened to be out there on "National Coming Out Day" (this past Monday) where they had a table set up below me, though I drew some of the people walking down the sidewalk as well.

I hope I was able to get enough of the foreshortening effect... looking at these again, I'm a little worried it's not pushed enough... ?

  1. Kirsten,
    Overall, great work. I like how you're taking advantage of the high angle to naturally create foreshortening. Good use of interactive obejcts (bicycle, dolly, etc.)
    I would recommend to also try to work on foreshortening at eye level and work with arms and legs closer to the eye.
