    Hi all,
    I'm currently an A-level art student and for my final major project I have chosen mental illness. I have my artists sorted but part of my grade is observational drawing which I'm really stuck on "/. Anyone have any ideas on what I can do? Thanks.

    you could get a friend to pose in such a way that could reflect a mental illness - for example their head in their hands for something like depression. you could also draw details of things like closed fists and closeups of eyes etc to show emotions. that's what i would do anyway

    What kind of things have you done for the rest of the project? Which artists are you looking at? Would help if you could link your observational drawings to these things in some way. For example, if you were looking at Da Vinci, anatomical drawings of the brain/skull would be appropriate, but if you were looking at Lucian Freud, an observation of a person posing would make more sense
