Evie Frye Case Study
The game series Assassins Creed has been a great source of inspiration to me for few years now. I just love the art style. That makes it a great starting point for me to improve my drawing skills. I couldn’t stand that people were able to create this, and I weren’t.
I wanted to improve my skills for anatomy drawing, perspective drawing and drawing shade. I also wanted to train myself in using photoshop to draw.
So I started with drawing anatomy an hour a day for a while, a selection of my studies can be found below.
When I felt comfortable enough, I started drawing poses for the character I wanted to create to practice shading.
After several attempts to create a nice pose I settled with this sketch.
With the basic shape of the character done, I worked on the composition and the perspective of the drawing. To make it a little bit more complicated I decided to create a two-point perspective, with one vanishing point inside the canvas.
If I activate all my guides, the file looks like this:
The last step to achieve all my goals was the shading of the character. My process can be found here:
