Hi @DCFanArtClub! Since we are starting a new year, let’s try something we’ve never done before.
The topics for January are not about characters! You can choose any human, alien or monster you’d like, but you need to create something from 1) a bird’s eye view, 2) a worm’s eye view and 3) an extreme close up.
Wha? Huh? What’s that all about?
A lot of art is created from just a straight forward perspective. The view of the character is from the front, back or side, but the ‘camera’ is at the same level as the person. Things can get a lot more interesting when you move the camera above, below or really close to your subject.
Let’s take a look at a few examples.
A Bird’s Eye View is taken from above the characters (think of a bird flying above and looking down). It works well for flying characters or it’s a good opportunity to play with shadows for a standing figure.
A Worm’s Eye View is taken from below the figure (think of a worm on the ground looking up). Anatomy can seem really weird here depending on how extreme of a view you are trying to achieve.
An Extreme Close Up is an opportunity to show emotion or really dig into the details of a monster, creature or alien. Work those eyebrows!
Choose a favorite character and give it a try! It may get a bit challenging, but the best way to improve your skills is to draw something out of your comfort zone. You’ll never know what you’re capable of until you give it a shot!
