Unlike my other independence discoveries (ID), this round I focused more on Cambodia’s arts. This round I still focused on doodlings and pencil drawings but with Cambodian culture and traditional included. Since I have never done this concept before, it took awhile to used to it.
At the beginning of this ID, I wasn’t sure what type of picture would I like to draw and doodle. I started to look at a bunch of references such as looking at Cambodian doodler’s Instagram (Chhoun Vicheka and Visoth Kakvei). Later on, I got this idea where I would have Preah Prohm as the center of the sketch in pencil drawing and traditional doodle styles around. Due to its details on the doodlings, it took me so much time doing this piece. My second idea was a comparison between Cambodia’s past and present buildings. However, due to the short amount of time I have, I couldn’t finish this piece.
Throughout this independence discovery, I realized that next time I should start with small ideas or pieces of the drawings. Nevertheless, I should have been more prepared and organized my thoughts before the class start so that I would have more time to focus on the drawings.
