Wait no longer! Here are some images from tonights session and some earlier works:

First lifedrawing session ever, first image (god I hate it already =]):

http://www.urgaffel.com/lifedrawing/images/01.jpghttp://www.urgaffel.com/lifedrawing/images/04.jpg

Second session:
http://www.urgaffel.com/lifedrawing/images/10.jpghttp://www.urgaffel.com/lifedrawing/images/11.jpg

Third session:

http://www.urgaffel.com/lifedrawing/images/13.jpghttp://www.urgaffel.com/lifedrawing/images/14.jpg

From tonight (4th session):
http://www.urgaffel.com/lifedrawing/images/15.jpghttp://www.urgaffel.com/lifedrawing/images/16.jpghttp://www.urgaffel.com/lifedrawing/images/17.jpg

I know the proportions on the second image is a little... off... but I like the shading I managed to squeeze in :)

Whew, that's all for now. Next lifedrawing session will be on saturday. I also have 3-4 self portraits, ranging from 10 to 20 minutes to post up. Without a mirror placed in a good spot it's kind of hard to get it right but they are ok so they will be up later.

Cheers

Peter

You are improving daily Peter. I am glad the huge fees are paying for itself :D

urgaffel
09-30-2005, 11:08 AM
Hehe, this course wasn't a huge fee :) I won't say that $895CAD is cheap, but it isn't expensive considering we get all the drawing materials for free. I'm glad I'm improving enough so that it's visible :D Thank you :D

what materials? ;P Pen, pencil, eraser? what what?
heh.
Oh well no matter..
I love the last gesture drawing. The one at the very bottom right '15-30 secs'

urgaffel
09-30-2005, 11:29 AM
Thank you :love:

We got a bunch of pens, those all-coal pen type things, mechanical pencil, ruler, sharpener, binder, sketchbook (somewhere a4 and a3 size), 3 lifedrawing pads (bigger than a3, maybe a2?) and conte and stuff. So we get everything we need for free :)

Peter,

I agree with Queenie, it will be quite interesting to spy on your progress and act as proper cheerleaders along the way! You know, the typical cheerleaders, who shout things like, "Bigger! Thigh! Muscle! Thingie!" and such. :scream:

I'm glad you've started your own thread, and oh yes, we will be watching...:)

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

No lifedrawing classes yet :sad: We had a lot of perspective today though, drew a lot of stuff and learned how to break down a tree and clouds and thingies and make them work with a perspective. Maybe next week I'll have more lifedrawing classes... And hopefully I'll get out and about and start sketching people. Although that would probably be limited to quick gesture sketches rather than elaborate 15-30 minute renderings... Ah well. I'll hopefully post something new soon!

urgaffel
10-05-2005, 07:39 AM
Finally had a lifedrawing session! Four new images:

http://www.urgaffel.com/lifedrawing/images/19.jpghttp://www.urgaffel.com/lifedrawing/images/20.jpg
http://www.urgaffel.com/lifedrawing/images/21.jpghttp://www.urgaffel.com/lifedrawing/images/22.jpg

A lot of the shadows are lost because of craptacular camera :sad: And I really hate the head in the last image... Was thinking of censoring it (blurry blob or a big black box) but thought it would be better to be honest about the crap :D

Got some self portraits done in pencil I can post up if they are suitable for this thread? What say the powers that be?

Rebeccak
10-05-2005, 07:52 AM
Peter,

ROFL! Post whatever drawings you wish. :) How's your class coming? I think you are getting a bit more comfortable drawing! :) Good to see your progress.

Cheers! :)

~Rebeccak (sorry, I can't not sign my name that way on the forum ~ it's wierd!) :scream:

YEAH! Urgaffel anatomy ROOOOCKS! :buttrock:

Great quick studies. The more you do of these, the easier it will get to see those proportions nicely. I think your main issue right now is your legs. Do a few more proportion studies on the leg (in relation to length of thigh vs. length of calf).

LOVE the perspective study in the lower right.

urgaffel
10-05-2005, 11:41 PM
Hehe, faces and legs and everything in between ;) It's not really a perspective study but I felt like exaggerating the foreshortening so I guess it's a hybrid hehe :D

Tonight: Composition class.

Rebecca, what about them self portraits and hand studies, post them up here?

Rebeccak

I still haven't digitized the self portraits and hand studies, sorry! As a compensation I present the latest drawings from my (teacherless) lifedrawing class tonight!

Off we go...

Wow, tremendous progress you're making Urg! Seriously! How are you scanning in the drawings?

urgaffel
10-07-2005, 11:52 AM
Hah, scanning... Funny guy... Seriously though, I'm just taking pictures of them with my cellphone and then trying to get something that doesn't look like shit from Photoshop. No scanner for me :sad:

Glad to hear I'm making progress in the eyes of others too, thank you for the encouragment! :D I do feel that I've come some way along the path to be able to draw people in 30 seconds hehe. At least it looks a lot better compared to the first images :)

Rebeccak
10-07-2005, 12:38 PM
Nice progress, Peter! :thumbsup: You're doing quite well, I see. :) Great stuff so far.

Cheers, :)

10-07-2005, 01:25 PM
Thanks Rebecca :) I've only got 7 lessons left and not all of them will be lifedrawing... :sad: After that I'll have to join in on the OFD sessions :D

Rebeccak
10-07-2005, 09:06 PM
Peter,
We'd love to have you join the OFDWs!! :bounce:The nice bit about them is that they're free, and don't require you to find housing in Vancouver. :D :)

Cheers, :)

Yay, new images are up from satudays session. It was a so-so session though, the last hour I just couldn't draw properly so it turned out cacapoopoo. But I did get some images done that I don't have to be ashamed over :) Also uploaded one face, one hand study, eye-nose thing and a sketch I did in composition class.

Images!

Peter,

cacapoopoo??? ROFL!!! :scream:

Great to see your stuff here, and I think you very well may be learning stuff up there in chilly Canada, ay? :) Sorry...it's overdone, but I just can't help it! :)

Keep up the good work! :)

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

10-09-2005, 11:38 PM
It's so cold here :sad: And it will only get colder I guess... *sigh* Good thing I have a thick jacket with me. Anyway, I'm glad that it shows that I'm learning things :) Shading is a lot more fun now that I have gotten a few pointers and now what to think of. I did know about bounce light and the difference between shadows and shade but it just didn't work properly. Now I'm at least beginning to make it work :)

More stuff to come (I hope, otherwise I will be making regular appearances in the OFDW ;))

*edit*

Speaking of 'ay', I called a lady about a place to stay a few weeks ago and she actually ended all her sentences in 'ay'. I couldn't believe my ears lol

Hey Peter,

Good to see these! How large are these? Are you working on a large newsprint pad?

Cheers, :)

~Rebeccak

urgaffel
10-12-2005, 08:00 PM
I have to confess that I'm completely ignorant when it comes to pads so... I have no idea. It's larger than a3, slightly yellow/beige paper, not very rough surface. I'll ask tonight what they are called :) I try to use as much as possible of the pad for the longer sketches so they can be anything from one sq foot to a couple of inches tall :)

Rebeccak
10-12-2005, 08:04 PM
Peter,

Just say no to pad ignorance! :scream: No worries...I will survive another day without knowing the exact texture and dimensions of your drawing surface...somehow. :)

Good to see more work of yours! How much longer in the program? :)

Cheers,

~Rebecca

10-13-2005, 12:03 AM
Only 4 more lessons :sad: Today is composition and stuff, tomorrow another lifedrawing session, saturday is review time of our final assignment and on monday is more reviews and perspective and that be the end of it. I need to re-book my ticket home too *sigh* Hopefully I'll be able to do some sort of OFDW when I get back to Sweden. 2 and a half hours left to lesson...

Rebeccak
10-13-2005, 04:20 AM
Peter,

Vancouver seems like an awful long way to travel for life drawing lessons...are there none in your area? I know that you're interested in the school, though, so my point may be moot. :) I'm a moot pointmaker...it's a genetic property. :)

Sorry to hear you only have a few lessons left...I hope you get the most out of them possible, and return triumphal to the land of your birth! :) Ah...Koreans have a flair for the moot and the dramatic. :)

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

True, but it was a condition they had for me to be accepted to the full time 3d program. My 2d was weak-to-non-existent so I took this course to get better at it. The idea was that I was going to start on the 3d program directly after it but it got pushed up until Jan 2nd because of economic woes and needing to get a student visa and whatnot... :sad:

We get an extra lifedrawing class on tuesday next week since they didn't provide a teacher last week :bounce: so I have two more classes before it ends :D

You also seem to have a flair for rofl:ing like no other ;) Besides a dramatic flair is always nice and making moot points is... er... maybe not the most usefull of skills but I like you regardless ;)

Rebeccak
10-13-2005, 12:01 PM
ROFL...I'm glad I pass the bar! :) Much good luck to you in terms of the 3D program :) ~ I'm sure you'd do quite well. But...wouldn't you study someplace, you know, warm??!!! :eek:

Cheers,

~Rebecca

urgaffel
10-13-2005, 05:38 PM
I'd love to. On the other hand, I love Vancouver and VFS is cool so I just have to hang in there for a couple of months before it starts to get warm again in april-may :)

One last session on tuesday :sad:

*edit*

Forgot to mention that I used graphite pencil on the first three and conté on the last 10 min sketch.

Rebeccak
10-14-2005, 01:24 PM
Peter,

That last one is really nice ~ you've really started to get some confidence and moreover, movement in that one! Great stuff! :)

It's also nice to see you work with shadow shapes a bit. They can be a really great way to approach the breakdown of a figure when drawing.

Cheers, :)

And in January school starts again weeeeee :bounce:

Rebeccak
10-20-2005, 11:59 PM
Peter,

Are you back in Sweden now? :)

The upper torso and buttocks of the upper right piece are quite nice! The lower leg and foot falls apart a bit, which is where Anatomy Studies would come in handy. ;)

Cheers, :)

~Rebeccak

urgaffel
10-22-2005, 05:57 PM
Yeah, I know... I will try to do some anatomy studies on my own :) I will have to download pictures from the OFDW and then I'll try to draw traditionally (or maybe dare to do some wacom stuf...) and post them whenever I find a connection. I have the book Anatomy For Artists and Dynamic Figuredrawing so I guess I'll be set for a while at least... Although priority no 1 is to find a job and get cash, I needs it now! :D

Rebeccak

You updated! Wait...feel that cold...thats hell freezing over :p! I looked for your thread the other day and it was the very very last one in the entire sketchbook threads!

Good to see you sketching honey, am going to make you do some of the ofdw's with me :D bua ha!

Great to have you back! Now do more models!:D

urgaffel
07-26-2006, 10:28 AM
Yes dear, I will do more OFDWs. Eventually. ;)


Martin, I do models everyday at work :p Means not many models when at home heh... On the other hand, I have an interesting collaboration in the works that might come to fruition soon. Should be interesting... Mwahahaha. You know what I'm talking about Ailsa, but don't tell anyone :D

Elsie
07-26-2006, 10:45 AM

Pffffft, what do you think I am, a motormouth? Just because I tell everyone stories about crazy workstuff/swedishstuff/nonsense things you say to me in your sleep haha *scuttles off*

P.S. What would you do if someone gave you a 4 x 4 crate? zzzzzzz.....

Rebeccak
07-27-2006, 05:25 PM
Pieter!

Great to see you back on the board. :) I think the Hogarth studies will do you wonders. I will rely on Ailsa to give you a healthy kick in the bum to do more of these. It really is all about structure, and Hogarth will really teach you that well.

Cheers, :)
