Another Sat. spent figure drawing (male)

On the way to Ex'pression @ 10:30am via bike & foot because i got a flat w/1mile to go! I was thinking it may not be as fun as last week because it would be a male this time. And with my experience its rare to get a strong defined male model but this Saturday we were in luck! It was definately worth the walk back in the pouring rain.

*note* the images are being show in the order that i drew them. Starting off with 5 minute poses then 10 and finally 20s.

Enjoy

PS I'm working on another zbursh head sculpt based off one of my ealier sketches. So look out for that post coming up! & I hope you enjoyed your weekend :D

When I challenged myself to improve my versions of the female form. I'm still not confident w/drawing women. I need a lot more practice...
but still I climb.
I want to be able to draw females in any pose from memory.
I also want my own model.
That would be nice.

Some of these were done months ago but never scanned. And some of these are brand new. No reference, just imagination :)

I think its safe to say i've improved with drawing the female form. Practice makes better.

had to lay on my stomach over the edge for this one! It was a slow Sunday morning, nothing to worry about. It was worth it. Not many people get to see the Macarthur BART Station from this perspective.

2min Warm Ups!

\\\You can learn a lot about yourself in 2min with a pen,pencil,and/or charcoal. I sure did, can you tell? Within those 120 seconds you have only enough time to put down the bare bones of the drawing, the foundation. It's about getting proportion down as fast and accurate as possible. I'm never too critical of myself in this phase, hell it's only 2minutes.
Next is 5mins, then 10, then 20s!
So the 2mins is really like your stretch before the marathon of what is timed Figure Drawing. And I will try my best to continue this exercise as long as I live!

How I Celebrated my 23rd Bday (in the AM)

I don't know if there is anything i'd rather spend my b-day morning that doing some figure drawing. Nothing beats real live models with good lighting >_< No matter what the shape there's always something you can learn about the form. Props and textures always make it fun.
I hope you like it.

PS i know it's been a pretty long minute since i posted anything of real worth. Today these drawings mean a real lot! and in years to come they will be real priceless. Especially in a nice frame.

PS pt.2 Next post will be the 2min warm up sketches. Oh joy!
