Christine made a wonderful mermaid model! I’ve missed MerMay, but better late than never …

All In Gesture – Leia
As a nod to Star Wars day earlier in May, the All In Gesture theme was Leia. I enjoyed the costume for this one – much simpler, and more iconic!
All In Gesture – Mary Poppins
At times I think I was drawing the costume more than the character! Drawing more subtle poses was a great challenge.
All In Gesture – Adventurer
This session is from way back in the All In Gesture archives. I’m still working my way through all the sessions – some of which result in no good drawings, so I don’t post them! These ones brought back a lot of memories of a character I wrote stories about while I was in primaryContinue reading “All In Gesture – Adventurer”
All In Gesture – Swing Dancing
I’m gradually working my way through the archives of All In Gesture and this workshop is definitely a favourite. Lots of dynamic poses with the added challenge of two figures!
I first shared some sketches of Morna here, and I’m finally diving back in to developing her design. There are lots of things still to nail down but I’m pleased with how she’s coming to life!
Happy New Year – 2022?!
Digging through my drawings from last year, I uncovered some from a year ago that I never posted. So here they are!
All In Gesture – 1940s Baseball
And here are some more recent drawings! Makenzie was the model of these ‘A League of Their Own’-inspired poses.
All In Gesture – Hula
I drew these back in May? June? I can’t remember now. Anyway, here they finally are! Anna Rose modelled these fantastic Hula poses for Todd Bright’s All In Gesture class.
All In Gesture – Travelling
Today I dusted the cobwebs off my pencil and newsprint pad and sat down to do some gesture drawing! Todd Bright’s weekly All In Gesture class gets recorded, so I was able to take part at a time that suited me. It was so much fun to do, despite being very rusty.
Sketch Club: Road Trip
Wild Child has recently started a weekly Sketch Club with a prompt. This week’s was ‘Road Trip’. I had a lot of fun doing research and creating this little image of a family on the Oregon Trail.
This character jumped out while I doodled today. I’m not sure who she is or what she’s holding, but she seems a bit worried about it.
Life Drawing, 31st December
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.
Life Drawing, 8th October
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.
Life Drawing, 14th July
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!
Character Sketching – Housewife
Julie Wions modelled at this Character Sketching event a couple of weeks ago. I loved the interaction with the doll – I was reminded of my sister and my niece at times!
Character Sketching – Fantasy Creature
It’s taken me far too long to post these sketches from this session where Daniella Traub modelled as a ‘fantasy creature’! Through the evening I explored different versions of the character – more elfin, a wild girl of the woods, a villain.
Character Sketching – Ballerina
Beatrix held some tricky-to-draw ballet poses last Friday for CTN’s On Model class.
Costumed Drawing – Maiden
Last week I was finally able to catch the free costumed drawing session CTN is running before it vanished from YouTube! As it’s a recording I was able to skip back and forward a bit as I pleased, so though poses were between two and seven minutes I spent less time on some and moreContinue reading “Costumed Drawing – Maiden”
Character Sketching – Dorothy
Rachel modelled as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz at last week’s On Model session. A little different from the last couple of weeks – this time I wasn’t following a model sheet!
