Cool

agreed!

This thread is making me want to resurrect my rusty pencil of old..
Altho since doing architecture/environments for so long now.. dare I say it; that I'm scared witless to do any life drawing at all!

maybe I will have a dabble in photoshop first, keeping my rubbish off here, and keep an eye on this fantastic thread/sub forum to inspire me to practise!

These are from last fall term, my first figure drawing class. I don't have more recent ones photographed yet, and these are better anyway.




18"x24", charcoal, 25 minutes. I've always despised charcoal-- this was the first time it actually started to cooperate with me.



18"x24", graphite pencil, 1 hr. Figure drawing in pencil is a nightmare, this is one of the few that actually turned out okay.



18"x24", charcoal, 1hr.



18"x24", charcoal, 1 hr.



18"x24", charcoal, 1 hr. That's a mirror in front of her, though it doesn't show up too good.

Proportions are...sexy?

Wait. It's a trick question.

Gnarly Cranium,

Thank you for posting these! I like the second one best of the man sleeping ~ I think his restive mood affected you ~ the mood and attitude of the models always affect the artist!

Congratulations on completing your first figure drawing class, and I encourage you to keep at it!

~Rebeccak

Stalsby,

Welcome to the forum, and thanks for posting your work! I especially like your last Drawing, it looks like a longer pose. Hope to see more of your drawings here as your class progresses!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Woo circus performer!

I'm attending a figure drawing workshop, and I did this picture in about 3 hours in Painter. (I have a laptop. Everybody loves staring at my toy in the workshop... weeee....)

The model is a circus performer. She was in costume, probably because she had an awesome costume on. Her hair was crazy wild, and was really, really fun to paint.

Her expression was a little funny. She kept falling asleep while posing. I think the music just lulled her to sleep. It was absolutely adorable.

Anyhoo, any and all C&C is welcome.



FIX: I recently recalibrated my laptop monitor since other monitors seem to be getting significantly different contrasts. Here's the originally produced .jpg from the laptop. The contrast of the above image is still not perfect, but it's better.

PS. The drawings by leftyfallat are amazing. How long did those take? They remind me of drawings I saw in the Tony Ryder book.

mrtristan,

ROFL, years and years ago, there was this cartoon by Wiley? I think which showed a bunch of people behind computers holding up pencils to measure a model in front of them ~ the unspoken but implied punchline was 'Ha! Ha! Like that would ever happen!' Well...hehe, looks like that's not such an odd occurence anymore! Lol, I think this was even before laptops were prevalent...

At any rate, I think this is a really cool little painting, and I would be really interested to see what your future paintings from this workshop will look like.

If you reexamine the face, I think you might find that it looks as though the entire face is on a single plane ~ when in fact, it is comprised of innumerable small facets ~ which can be represented by a shift in value as the face subtly turns away from the viewer, or changes angle. Right now, every highlight/light area on the face is about the same value, or brightness, which is causing the face to flatten out. Try darkening areas which are slanted away from the viewer, or down. This will help significantly to help the face 'read'. (Also, the eye seems a bit close to the nose ~ generally, the space between the eyes is approximately one eye width). I think there is a much more sense of shape through value in the neck and shoulder area ~ great job there!

Great stuff, look forward to more!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

jrr,

Great to see your work here, and I recognize a bit of James McMullan's influence in your work, am I right? I checked out your website, some great stuff there! There is an unmistakable quality of linework which McMullan teaches (I learned from an amazing former student of his) and it's very nice to see this kind of linework again. I was not always the best at this approach, so I admire those who can master it.

Though the proportions on the drawings are not perfect, I don't mind this as the overall sense of the figures is very much present. There is a wonderful John Singer Sargent sketch quality to the first of these drawings, and just a very nice relaxed but considered approach to the second. Are you taking any classes currently, or have you graduated? Nice to see your work, and hope to see more.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak
