Thanks for the link to the master copies. I have created an art schedule for myself. It goes like this:
Monday Color theory and exercises. Figure or faces.
Tuesday Drawing Class (figure?), 2d design (line, value, shading etc)
Wednesday Anatomy studies, heads, painting
Thursday Drawing Class (figure?), animal drawing
Friday perspective and environments. homework
Saturday Drawing/painting from masters. Homework
Sunday Take a drawing from the week and work on it in photoshop or illustrator paying attention to color and line thickness.

Mainly that is just to give me a direction. Since the 3 art drawing classes the school offers are about over.

Life Drawing today. The model was there but mysteriously disappeared before out professor arrived. So we made due with each other again. The professor was pleased with us again. At one point he said to me, something must be going on with you today. I said, I'm just feeling it lately. And he said something about I definitely am being very expressive lately. Which is cool cause he likes expressive art. Which isn't the reason why I'm being "expressive" lately. I'm mostly getting a handle on it. Here's todays stuff.
5 Minutes


10 Minutes

3 Minutes because thats as long as he could hold the position.

There were more but they were the quickies which I dont do that great at.

Hey afgal,

Nice work with these! I agree, it does seem that you are getting more control of these, it's great. I'm sorry you're model is such a flake, but unfortunately, that's not unusual. Keep at it, this is sort of the norm in terms of models.

It sounds like you have set up a great schedule! Very cool, look forward to seeing more of your work.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

~no model?!~

Hey

I too can totally relate to the absence of model scenario - fisrt three weeks of figure drawing we had no models, and had to try on figure out what lies beneath the clothes. That said, your figure drawings look real great - love the direction your going in, especially with your lines. This last ones also look good, but my favourite are the figures.

Keep posting man.

Thank you demented!

Here is a study from Winslow Homer. This is gouache. Also this is the first time I've tried gouache. I like it. Though it dries very fast.

Hi afgal,

If your model continues to fail to show up, I would encourage you to use reference from places like:

www.characterdesigns.com > go to photosets

and

http://justmeina.deviantart.com/gallery/

to get practice drawing the figure.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Hi afgal,

These recent studies are looking good! I definitely encourage you to continue with doing Bridgeman studies ~ the way he puts together upper and lower torso is particularly helpful.

Looking forward to seeing more studies.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Try to think where the bones are and paint this in a sketch (just some lines) and what the muscles do where they are and so on. Than try to paint the form of the body(I hope you got this). Maybe this helps a little

Hi afgal,

It's good to see your sketches.

I did a review of one of them which I hope will help:



Cheers,

good work

Hi Afgal,
I'm really new to posting, but I just wanted to tell you that I can really see a progression in your work. I really like the life studies from post #16. Very "expressive". Keep it up!
