Life-drawing 30th May 2011

I continue with my (albeit limited) exploration of markers. Maybe next week I'll try something more outlandish. The last pose was held for 50 minutes in total, so I took two stabs at it. I preferred the second attempt.

CTT - Detour

Aeronik gave me this. I did this:

I hate vehicles. And dirt.

Drawing Day 2011

I will be in Queensland and with NO access to a decent computer, so I'll be using my sketchbook and my mum's dubious scanner and 56k modem. That'll be a scream.

Life-drawing 22nd May 2011

I used mostly markers tonight; the 3 minute poses I did with charcoal pencil.
Got some new marker paper on the weekend, but this stuff is very smooth and occasionally the ink puddled, so not sure why this paper is different to what I used last week. Adam had the same problem. Because of the colours I was using, it looked like I'd just gone to my coffee cup for materials!

Life-drawing 16th May 2011

My first try at markers. I used them on the 5 minute poses, as well as on a 20 minuter, which was actually held for 50 mins all up. So I did a charcoal pencil version of that as well. I struggled with the smaller 'canvas' of the marker paper, so my proportion got thrown out. That said, I still made the model's head too big in the charcoal 30 minuter, so maybe using a different marker jangled me somewhat. Still, not a disaster, and I shall use markers again next week.

Life-drawing 9th May 2011

Good grief... I really need to do some drawing OTHER than life-drawing.

Life-drawing 1st May 2011

There are so many things I want to be drawing and learning about and can't because of college marking and other duties. *sad face* But at least I can still get to life-drawing.
