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
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.
