Live from the USk Manchester Symposium #4

USk Manchester Symposium day 4 / Simpósio USk em Manchester dia 4

To balance yesterday’s all-american workshop day, my choice of workshop for today went with Indonesian instructor LK Bing. Apologizing for his English, LK decided to demonstrate his proposals for the morning, and what better way to communicate to a multi-national sketcher crowd than the universal language of sketching?

Para equilibrar o dia norte-americano de ontem, a minha escolha de oficina para hoje recaiu sobre o formador Indonésio LK Bing. Pedindo desculpas pelo seu Inglês falado, o LK decidiu demonstrar as suas propostas para a manhã, e que melhor maneira de comunicar para uma plateia de desenhadores internacionais que a linguagem universal do desenho?

The workshop “Capturing atmosphere using dramatic lighting and fast spontaneity” was split into two phases: for the testing phase, we were given tiny cardboard rectangles to capture thumbnails in marker and watercolor and test shadows and lights. All the above thumbnails were sketched in the same intersection. The skies of Manchester are ever fleeting and dynamic.

A oficina “Capturando a atmosfera usando iluminação dramática e espontaneidade rápida” estava dividida em duas fases: para a fase de teste, recebemos pequenas placas de cartão para capturarmos vistas com um marcador de feltro preto e aguarelas para testar sombra e luz. Todas as vistas acima foram desenhadas no mesmo cruzamento. Os céus de Manchester são muito dinâmicos.

For the execution phase, we would take one of the thumbnail views and expand it to a larger sheet of paper, going further into details and populating it with people, cars and action. The secret here was to explore the shadows and highlights in extremes, and at the end, pepper the sketch with strong, vivid dots of color, to make the whole thing sparkle.

Para a fase de execução, escolheriamos uma das pequenas vistas e expandi-la-iamos para uma folha de papel maior, explorando mais detalhes e populando o desenho com gente, carros e acção. Aqui o segredo era explorar as sombras e luz em extremos, e no final, polvilhar o desenho com pontos de cores vivas para que o desenho vibrasse.

I was born on the southwestern-most tip of Europe, in Lagos, Portugal. A childhood of legos and sandcastles led me to architecture school, but an adolescence of doodling drove me to sketching and later to illustration. I like to sketch, to travel and to chop vegetables into tiny manageable bits. I also like maps. The older the better!
