Better and better stuff keeps coming from Studio Maryel.
These drawing were made as a part of the preparation for the continue of my foundation course.
Drawing drapery, cloth, fabric with all these folds, overlaps, curves wasn’t exactly straightforward for me at the beginning. It really shows on my first piece which is the bottommost one shown here. Then I did a little bit of research, looked up tutorials and tried to understand the nature of the forms of a drapery. One of the most useful tutorial I’ve found is this one by Alfonso Dunn.
From our archive - 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square protests
25 years ago today, college students began to gather in Beijing and other Chinese cities mourning the death of ousted reformer Hu Yaobang. Hu Yaobang’s death in April trigged an unprecedented wave of pro-democracy demonstrations. The April-June 1989 movement was crushed by Chinese troops in June when army tanks rolled into Tiananmen Square on 4 June 1989.
