Elation. Grief. Suffering.

A fellow blogger suggested to me that we start doing some artistic exercises. This coming off the back of me getting him hopelessly addicted to the Draw Something app and us having the same mentality in our execution – that being you draw the most over elaborate sketch for something like “carrot”.

Using the oddball Drawing Brief Generator that Peej found on the internets somewhere we discovered that this weeks subject was:

Within one piece, express the qualities of elation, grief and suffering. Subjects need not be human.

Peej blogged this last night, so I set about sketching as my arm throbbed from being a heroic blood donor (more on that later). I’d already set my mind to doing something with robots but the blood letting sent me in a different direction and I quickly sketched this.

    Ooooh! Looking good. I like the concept! I really struggled to separate ‘grief’ from ‘suffering’ as they could be identical expressions. Elation should be fairly easy though!

      When I read the topic I thought it would be fairly simple to execute, and in concept I think it’s proved to be just that but nailing the expressions is going to be tough.
