Hey, just making a post of some life drawings on here, because it is the best venue to do so, and they'd otherwise never see the light of day. Even though these drawings are meant to be just studies, it is probably the subject matter and approach to art that I most enjoy...I love figure drawing (duh)!
Didn't make it to as many sessions this fall/winter because of various life happenings, but still made a fair amount of drawings. The top two are from photos...the top image took about 6 hours, and the second image took about 3-4 hours. All the other images are from life, done at MCAD's figure drawing cooperative.
Poses range from 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 minutes. Pretty satisfied, overall, with the results, but still a lot of room for improvement. Probably gonna need to do some individual studies, and more specific/specialized studies of anatomy to fine tune things. There are some kinda wonky proportions and things that don't really make complete anatomical sense, and the heads are still a bit too big on some (though much less apparent than the previous year). You'd think that with as many heads that I have drawn, they would be the strongest attribute on these, but no such luck. Guess it doesn't help that the heads were drawn in caricature style...oh well, better luck next time.
