Life-drawing 26 Septermber 2011

I dunno what’s been going on with my life-drawing these past few weeks. I think I’m going through some kind of rut, which is very frustrating. Proportion’s all whack and last night I seemed incapable of getting the whole figure done! Whilst I was reasonably happy with the 50 minute pose, the torso’s too short (the little duplicate next to it is a Photoshopped version with a longer torso). *sigh* I also need to start drawing in what model’s sitting on otherwise it’s just a bunch of levitating weirdness that does nothing to distract from my loopy renditions of proportion.

Life-drawing 12th September 2011

Another frustrating session. Vaughn's a good model and a vast majority of my drawings just didn't do him justice. My sense of proportion was terrible. I need to stop having my drawing pad in landscape orientation cos I'm starting to either set the figure on the page incorrectly so that feet and upstretched arms go off the page, or I mess with the proportion to fit them on - either way, terrible!
These were the ones I was least unhappy with.
