I’ve been pretty busy lately and haven’t had the chance to get around to scanning and uploading stuff from the last few weeks. Some of this is figure drawing, some of this is just random drawings, and there’s also 4 weeks worth of skratch klub material in here too.

So yeah. Peruse at your leisure.

Okay, I KNOW the hand is screwed up in that one. It’s not finished. We were finishing up at skratch klub before I had time to put any finishing touches/corrections on this one. Take it for what it is.










WHEW! Finished!

Life drawing

Tonight’s life drawing session was pretty fun. I didn’t get into the life drawing groove until the second half, and even then it was a little iffy. I am going to cheat and only post the good stuff from tonight:

Tonight Scott and I hit up figure drawing class. The place was packed!!! Usually there’s only like a dozen or so people in the room, but tonight there was over 30. The guy who kinda runs the show said that it was a record crowd. Scotty and I came late because we were fooling around at work and not watching the time, so we had to sit on the floor. But that was cool; we got some different angles from the ground and I think our session went relatively well. Here’s some of the stuff I did tonight (you might notice it was the same model as we had once before):

Figure Drawing (June 13th session)

with 2 comments

This weeks session was great. My friend Kyle joined Taylor and I this week and will likely be a regular to the weekly figure drawing sessions. I feel like I’m starting to get back into the figure drawing groove again. I was also very impressed with the rest of the people there too, there were some fantastic drawings and paintings made at that session and they’ve really inspired me to experiment with different media. I’d like to bring watercolour or something else to paint with next week and really focus on lighting.

Anyway, here’s a few drawings from that session.

june 13th life drawing sesh

So this was the second life-drawing session I attended, and it went much smoother than did last week’s. It’s all about getting into the proper head-space and not trying to rush your lines. Last week I was all worried about the time limit and not having enough time to finish, so I just scribbled everything in and it looked bad. But this week I was like “man, I don’t care how much of the drawing I get done just so long as whatever I DO complete has some effort put into it”. And that totally worked. I feel much better about my drawings this week, but they’re still by no means anywhere near to perfect. I’ve got a long way to go.
