Life Drawing: October 11 Edition

Just normal life drawing here..or is it!?
It's costume life drawing time!

Some of us brought in costumes and we took turns drawing each other.  We started with 1 min poses.  Definitely a lot to think about in one minute, especially with the addition of a costume and trying to design the pose, character and story.

Some of these costumes were more made up than others.  Like this one.

This was a lot of fun.  I felt like I focused more on story and personality which made it exciting and different from regular life drawing.  OK back to some regular life drawing.

Like the torque of this one.

May have pushed the perspective a little on this one.  Juuust a little bit.
More costume life drawing on the way!

Life Drawing: October 4 Edition

Life drawing from a couple weeks ago.  Working my way up to the newer stuff.  One of the side effects of looking at drawings after doing them is rarely being satisfied with them haha.  They get a little newer at the end of the post, so don't forget to scroll down.

Saw this guy in the caf on the way to life drawing.  Had to do a quick memory sketch once I had my stuff set up.  Yes, that is a metal strainer on his head.

This one was coming along alright, well except for that "hand".  Maybe she is Mrs. Captain Hook?

Still trying to figure out what works best for 1 min or less poses.

And the "odd face" returns.  Like the rest of it though.  Hmm..might be the direction of the eye lids?

"Odd face" part II

Barrels are a good substitute for stools.  Always make them feel a bit like naked pirates.

Decent drawing, too bad the pose was hand-less.

Some OK stuff going on here.  Right leg has nice rhythm.  I'll figure out knees eventually!

Wine Taster Scribble Doodle Digital Painting

I'm trying to get better at digital painting.  I'm also trying to remember to push shapes more when designing.  An attempt at a Cup 'O Doodle (a cool blog: ) post seemed like a fun way to practice both.  It's like a digital version of the scribble game where one person scribbles something then you make a drawing out of the scribble.

The scribble that I worked from was that big thing I saw as a nose, and the square that formed his tie.

Bus Stop Sketches

I did these last week.  On the way to the bus I'd keep my eyes open for someone interesting looking.  Then when I got to school I'd try to draw them.  I managed to do at least one of these each day last week.  It was fun.
