Life Drawing...week 4

Tonight at life drawing saw a bit of a return to form...I found the model last week difficult to draw, and this is probably because he was a young, toned guy with lots of details in the muscle structure and tonal values when the light hit him. I tend to find the more curvaceous the figure, the easier it is to draw...anyway, all good stuff at the end of the day! Check out today's results below!

About 40 mins...the final piece of the evening.

About 23 weekly inked trial using the Pentel brush pen. 


Left and centre, 3 minute warm-up sketches and far right, a 15 minute study (there is also a third 3 minute warm-up sketch on the far right image but I didn't like that one so much!).

Life Drawing...week 3

This week's naked drawings...! Had a bit of an 'off' day that day...something just wasn't working right. Maybe I was tired as well as getting a young guy (about 20-21 ish) and he was quite toned so there was lots of detail and trying to capture lots of detail in several short span drawings is difficult to do! Roll on this Thursday! Ta!

Life Drawing!

I know, I know...haven't posted any drawing in a while. I have been working on some projects and not been doing any observational stuff, but this evening I went life drawing! I haven't been life drawing properly in a long while (by properly I don't count my good friend Matt's stag do - cos that was just funny!)...

It was very good to get back into the swing of it and this time, I was really focused on how I can connect my life drawing to my comic work. This is something I'm always told by critics and never really grasped the concept, so I started thinking about it tonight and it was beginning to make sense. It's funny to realise how one can do something for the sake of doing it, yet when doing it in relation to a set purpose it makes the experience all the more enjoyable and, more importantly, essential!

Here's this evening's scribbling!

(my favourite!)
