I knew I wanted to focus on the figure and how light and dark can portray it differently, so I took a photoshoot using myself as the subject. I collected many different angles and poses that I thought may be interesting to depict in paint. Also, I knew my face or the background would not be present so focused solely on the muscles, shadows and positions by limbs were creating. 

After realising I would need to use photoshop to produce the images I wanted, I began experimenting and familiarising myself with how to use it. Overall, I produced 5 images that I was really happy and excited about, they came out exactly as I had hoped and really allowed me to develop my project further. I produced a word document too with the step by steps of how to create one of these images for my myself in the future!
