Life Drawing

Week 3 at Art School - p.2

Finally! Some CLASSICAL style of drawing - today was life drawing day. I'm not going to say too much as I think most people know what life drawing is. Like I've mentioned before, I find drawing the human figure quite difficult, but by the end of the day I was really getting into it. As they say, 'practice, practice, practice'. In the morning we did "Proportion and Shape". Here are my drawings:




In the afternoon it was "Light and Space" and here are my results from that:




Right at the end we did a couple of 10 minute (by my watch it was more like 5 minutes!) drawings trying to be as free as possible. So these are the last drawings from the day:




Homework is to do one more line based drawing, and two more shade and form based drawings. Hmm... am going to have to find myself a willing volunteer to be a model!

Yes! Thankyou for dinner!

Love your life drawings- esp the "Proportion and Shape" ones.
The linework is super!

I like these a lot. The images really convey a sense of his weight and he looks solid and real. Very nice work!

Big change from those outline drawings like the robot arm. These have a real sense of 3D and mass. I'm sooo jealous
