Life-drawing 27th June 2011

I have inconsistent success when there's a male life model because most of the time life-drawing classes get female models in. I prefer to draw men, even though I don't always draw them particularly well. I need the practice! Some people won't turn up to a class if they know there's going to be a male model. A stupid and lazy attitude.

Model: Costa

Life-drawing 12th June 2011

My shorter poses feel a lot more unscructured than I would like, but I'm trying to speed up when it comes to applying tone to a drawing. Consequently the forms are a little erratic. I'm also trying to be a little more confident/bold with application of marker. Not always successful.
After I returned home, I realised there was a proportion problem with the final pose. her head was far too small in comparison to the rest of her body, so I distorted it in Photoshop (marked 'CORRECTED') to something that seems a lot more realistic.
So, not my best session, but not a disaster either.

Drawing Day #1

I'm unable to partake in Drawing Day quite the way I would have liked. For a start, I'm not in my home state and consequently have no access to Photoshop or, seemingly, peace and quiet. I'm being distracted and my attention demanded of every five seconds which is incredibly disruptive, but I shall do what I can.

Some 1 minute warm-up sketches using Posemaniacs:

Some pencil work. I'm very slow with this sort of thing:
