These first initial examples of experimentation with perspective turned out better than I expected, I've struggled with perspective in the past so these first tasks acted as a nice introduction into the area for me. I was unsure if all the various lines would be too overwhelming but it was surprisingly simple and easy to do.
As I continued to experiment with various shapes my confidence in the area grew as it was all becoming easier to do in general, I found I didn't need as many guide lines as I did previously and I overall started to freehand a lot more of the process rather than strictly obeying the guide lines. This resulted in a much more smooth and fluid sketching process compared to my first few attempts and I feel that my confidence is shown when you compare these two sets of sketches.
When I began sketching ellipses and cylinders is where I began encountering some problems, although the general guidelines all made sense to me some angles proved to be much harder to render than others. Also I feel that a lot of the cylinders are a little rough but I'm sure that with more practise my skills and confidence would begin to develop which should result in smother and nicer final outcomes.
Moving onto some life drawing experimentation although I did enjoy sketching everyday objects I think this is another example where I simply need more practise, my issues drawing ellipses and cylinders transfers over to these sketches which overall greatly affects the final outcomes, mainly when aiming for realisms anything but is too apparent to ignore. Additionally I feel I need to develop my shading skills as well, these sketches all have this overall smooth look to them which isn't realistic so I'll need to work on that in the future.
I found sketching people to be much simpler than sketching random objects although this is mainly down to just being more confident in the area, I aimed to make these sketches quick so that I wouldn't get to focuses on specific details. Based on my previous life drawing attempts I went into these sketches knowing I needed to focus more on adding tone so spent more time adding depth to the shadows and erasing the highlights to create more contrast. Admittedly some of these attempts are rougher than others, particularly the full body attempts, but overall I'm pleased with how they turned out.
