Life Drawing Dump 3






Well, I guess I had enough life drawings piled up already for this to qualify as a dump. Again, these are all from the Avalanche friday morning drawing sessions and they all took about an hour and a half to complete -- except for the very bottom one which is a two and a half hour drawing that I did today. I'm not sure if it actually looks any better than the one and a half hour drawings though. I've been trying something new lately, using black and brown and sometimes white nupastel and charcoal on toned paper. I think it looks kinda nice; the brown keeps the drawing warm but I can still get some deep blacks and cool shadows. It's a bit more work though. It's almost like I have to do the whole drawing twice. I haven't decide yet if it's worth the trouble... we'll see.

So, these are real people posing for you? Why is it that noone ever asks fat people to pose...?

Well, since you asked... Back in the days before Disney came to town, we would pay anyone we could find to come model for us: friends, family, homeless people off the street -- people of all different shapes and sizes. But now that we are dealing with the massive beurocracy that is the Walt Disney Company, they require that we hire all of our models though a modeling agency (for tax puposes I think). And since modeling agencies tend to only employ healthy attractive people, well... there you go.

Hey B, these are tight. The head shot is cool but I think the first is the most solid.

Thank you for clarifying for me. I don't feel quite as offended now. :)

I offend fat people all the time by drawing them...but just to be fair I offend the skinny ones too.

I really like the middle one here Brian -of the back pose.
