Orthographic Drawing In plan of a person getting ready out of bed

To get to grips with orthographic drawing I first produced a plan view of an

activity at 1:5 scale, integrating key elements such as: a cutting plane, movement

of the body and line weights.

For my activity I chose a variation of my morning routine, showing transitions of

waking up, getting dressed and running out the door. As the activities progress

on, the bodies get faster in pace and more urgent, portraying the body waking up

and realising time is running out to get out of the door. I enjoyed playing with

different textures, making the present the quality of the different surfaces. I

believe that the fluid lines on the duvet worked most effectively. I also added in

personal elements such as my teddy bear and lanyard to give more context to the

activity.

To improve, I think that the drawing would benefit from more shading to

contextualise the light sources in the room and perhaps a thicker line weight to

exaggerate the cutting plane.
