Life Drawing in the morning..

I have a bit of a cold, but that did not stop me from drawing or experimenting.





Back to Life Drawing

Great, so I just started doing life drawing again. I guess I was a little bit rusty. I found it a little bit hard to get all the proportions right. Hopefully next week i’m all warmed up. I have been drawing so much those past few days that I feel like my arm might just fall off at some point.

Examples of 30 secs movement drawings. Dynamic poses.

The first 2 warm up drawings (10mins)


Then the last one where we had a little more time for details and observational study.IMG_20150909_143627

Overall, I really liked it, it was nice to get back into it after this long… I think its been a few months since I did any kind of life drawing or still life, any observational drawing really. Anyway. I hope to improve much more this year 😀

Why I think my Sketches look better than the final thing…

  1. There is just so much more energy and emotions in my sketches.
  2. All the ideas are roughly there, whether they’re good or bad, everyone sees and understands the concept
  3. They take far less time and hassle.
  4. I enjoy doing them and I don’t stress other it.
  5. I can ruin it any possible way I might want, its a sketch. I can experiment
  6. I can leave it half done with far less details and be so lazy about it.

And so I have a few Sketches; some with ink, some with pencil and random things. By “random” I mean, this teacher had me use rather strange things. I have been drawing with plastic forks, tree branches or twigs… and… It has been weird, but I did enjoy it. I missed traditional stuff… Digital will have to wait. 🙂
