I made it along to some of the epic eight-hour life drawing marathon organised by Deryck Henley on New Year’s Eve. It was great to do some drawing from (digital) life – it had been a few months, and I was very rusty. These poses were modelled by Anna and Mariano.
Last week, I attended a life drawing session where Safire and Andrew held beautiful poses. With three cameras to choose from, I enjoyed capturing the same pose from different angles.
A couple of sketches of Naomi, from a session last month. I’ve just started a new job with Wild Child on a children’s television series. Hopefully I’ll be able to show what I’m working on sometime next year!
Vilidian modelled at this week’s life drawing session. Unfortunately I’d run out of paper (more is on the way) but I drew in Photoshop instead. I tried to resist using ‘Undo’ but didn’t always succeed … It was nice having some close-up poses near to the camera.
Liat modelled at an amazing gesture drawing session this week. I gave a brief demo on gestures before we began, showing a little of what I’ve been taught while studying animation. The response to what I shared and to the session as a whole was really positive, much more so than I expected. It seemsContinue reading “Gesture Drawing, 5th May”
My regular life drawing group has moved online, so last week I sketched Amelia from the comfort of my own home! I’ve done quite a lot of drawing from stills online, so it was familiar in that way. The shorter poses worked well, but I struggled to see the detail for the longer poses –Continue reading “Life Drawing, 14th March”
Sue modelled at last night’s life drawing session.
Hannah modelled at last night’s session.
This week our model was Alexa.
The first life drawing session of November was modelled by Zaneta.
It’s been a while since I uploaded any sketches from life drawing … here are some from sessions modelled by Maxime, Lena, Evie, and Susan.
Sketches of Bea from last week. Even after a relatively short break from life drawing I struggled to get back into it! There are an awful lot of drawings that won’t see the light of day again. However here are a few sketches I am happy with. I particularly enjoyed drawing the study of Bea’sContinue reading “Life Drawing, 12th March”
Here are some more drawings from earlier in the month, with Debbie modelling.
Susannah modelled at the final January session. Lots of nice poses, but my drawings were a bit hit and miss.
Katrina modelled at this special ‘animation’ life drawing session with short poses. Normally there are poses from 2 minutes up, but we had several 1 minute poses and (after I begged) some 30 second ones too. We began with a sequence of 1 minute poses. There were several longer poses dotted about through the session.Continue reading “Life Drawing, 15th January”
There were three models at this session, because Bill stepped in for the first few minutes as Francesca and Pete were delayed! I tested out a new 10B pencil which was lovely to draw with. I liked being able to easily switch between a soft and sharp line (something I can’t seem to get theContinue reading “Life Drawing, 18th December”
Marta held some interesting poses at this session. Challenging, but good fun.
Morna modelled for our first December session. I was struggling with the conte pastel so did most of the drawings in pencil.
I have been snowed under with a job, Christmas, and a new niece (all very exciting but quite hard work) and that’s meant my life drawing from last year has been put aside until now. First up are drawings of model Gina, from back in November!
Nat and her dog Lapa were wonderful models at last week’s life drawing session. I drew Lapa quite a lot, as you can see below … That’s me caught up!
