Tonights efforts. Charcoal on blue sugar paper. Need to take better photos when I get a chance.

After over 2 years away from it (WTF?!!!), I finally managed to get some Life Drawing in.

First one’s decent, 2nd half ok, the rest have major proportion issues. Still good to get my hands dirty!

All charcoal and between 20-30mins

Not the best today I have to admit. Once again I was just getting into the short poses, but then tightened up for the longer ones. Really need to make the effort to draw every day, felt like a step back from last week.

first session of 2012. Only made it four times last year, let’s try improve that this year. Went for an all charcoal affair. Going to try and not give everything an outline for once!

after several months I’ve finally got back to life drawing!

I forgot I was going though and had to make do with the ink pens I carry around at all times for doodling. Kinda glad, I think they worked out ok. I find I can draw really quickly and more economically. Means I’ve got more time to go overboard on the longer drawings though, it’s hard for me not to overdo them!

bulk update to catch up with the last few weeks. New gallery on the Life Drawing page for 2011. Last weeks (the guy) I had a bit of an epiphany too when our teacher showed a technique for continuous drawing. I think a little lightbulb went up above my head “this is how I used to do it!”. At last, I think I’ve found the missing puzzle piece that was lost through years of inactivity. Only time will tell!

well, it’s been a while but I finally got back for the last class of the year.

went for some biro action (good ole Bic!) because I’ve been trying to keep up drawing outside of class, at work or out and about, and it’s usually a biro in the pocket. I figured getting away from the shading I could concentrate on trying to improve my drawing shorthand. Started working, these drawings are still quite scratchy, but I think a few pennies dropped. I’ll try spend them wisely ;)

Last nights batch. Included some 30 second ones for posterity. They’re not great, but I do love the fast ones as the poses are more dynamic. Gives me a chance just try to and capture the weight. As the poses get longer, I find myself focusing more on light and shadow. On that note, I’m quite chuffed with the middle drawing. I avoided outlining things a bit better than usual. The last one I just went for a wander :)

aay, it’s back!
it’s been a good few months since i’d last been, and probably it shows, but for what they’re worth, here’s the new batch of life drawings…

Life Drawings 11/05 and 18/05/10

missed uploading a week, if they’d been better drawings I probably would’ve made the effort!
been trying to revive a way i used to draw with blue conte first, but i’ve been finding it more “bitey” than i remember. one of my favourite things about black conte is how it glides across with no effort, let’s you easily vary the weight of your strokes. i’ll persevere because i like the quality it gives, but i ditched it in favour of the old charcoal for the last pose last night.

most recent last.
