Life Drawing 5

5 Mins each!

10 Mins each - don't think they're that much better than the 5 min ones o.0

Idk why my 20 min drawing always turns out crappy.

30 Mins - happy with this but took ages to get the hand/chest part right, so didn't have time to do much shading or anything.

It's getting easier, this time I had to concentrate a lot less on trying to get the proportions right etc, so I enjoyed the process a lot more (:

Life Drawing 4

I didn't go for the session last week cuz I was at the pub with my teammates after a squash match (oops). But here's pics from a very fruitful session this week!

5 Mins - first sketch of the session!

10 Mins (each)

20 Mins - yea, he wasn't some sort of alien, I just dont know what happened to his head.

30 Mins - REALLY proud of this, seriously surprised myself with how it turned out

I think because I'm not used to drawing guys I was observing much more closely, and probably because of that the proportions turned out well, and I didn't have a problem with my drawing running off the paper (which it kept trying to do before) so I'm really pleased ^^
The next session is a taught one, so looking forward to that!

Life Drawing 3

15 mins

30 mins

Tried using charcoal for the first one, I'm really disappointed, compared to something like:

or (being slightly more realistic) even:

I really prefer the second one, I think the more varied shading looks better instead of all diagonally in one direction.

Life Drawing 2

From my second session this week:

Although the anatomy is not nearly perfect, I felt a lot more confident this time, and I feel better about how these drawings have turned out compared to the previous ones. Still need to speed up though, and to get the basic structure right faster. Also I still have serious problems doing the face, hands and hair. Trying to stop thinking of them as distractions lol.

Life Drawing!

And after a very long break in which I did very little art because I was working 6 days a week (this was supposed to be my summer holidays!!), I'm back. I had fun doing two internships. And recently I've joined the Art Society which does weekly life drawing sessions, so I'll be posting some of my sketches and drawings here.

So here's two from the first session last week -

Definitely prefer the shading on the second one, but I think the anatomy's better on the first. Going to try to be a bit more bold (and accurate) at the next session, and worry less about how it looks. But I really had trouble getting all the proportions right. Might try the pencil measurement trick, where you hold up a pencil and use it to measure relative proportions.

Havent posted for a while because I've been on holiday in Thailand (it was awesome!!). But more art coming up soon (:
