Last intense session

Last ones! The gray one is 40 min session and the yellowish one is maybe 3 hours? I didn't keep track...

When I concentrate while playing games, solving problems or drawing I don't blink. I forgot that while desperately trying to put in all the proportions correctly. Strained my eye! It hurts looking to the sides. I feel silly.

Sorry for the even more crappy snapshots than regular. The paper this time is the same, the photos look different cause i tried to do some quick balance fixes in PS.

I fell into the trap of long session=stiff figure :( Still, I feel I learned a lot this week

I hope I'll get to do some more life drawing soon. I feel a strong need for some hardcore classical training :B Maybe some boring still life again?

MOAR life model drawing

Some of the sketches from todays session. Sort of strange, I feel a lot of progress. And I can see actual progress in the 5 second sketches. Third try(the ones in this post) has far more marks/detail compared to the first two. Feels strange because I rarely feel this sort of improvement.

Some of these done with trusty old brush pen, then I swiched to charcoal. I never use charcoal, so don't be too hard on me :]

These are 5 second, 6 minute and 12 minute sketches(all on a3 format paper). The last one(yellowish one) is done in 40 minutes (on a2 format). I still kind of suck at drawing large. Somehow painting large is easier to me while drawing is harder.

More to come on friday, after the last session! :]
Maybe something in colour tomorow?

Life drawing nudes

Some of the work from the last two days. Training figurative drawing tickles my brain in a lovely way. Wouldn't mind improving my skillz.

I do love life model drawing, so glad I have the opportunity atm. More to come this week!

Ye old banner

I don't really make them as banners, but that is what they are.
The old one was just a stand-in, quickly picked out from a random sketch. I figured everyone are probably heartbroken and miss the old banner very much. So here is the original unfinished study I used for it.

It's my plant, Kate, she stands next to the monitor, was fitting to paint a study of it :] Ficus Ginseng if I am correct, some sort of a bonzai tree.

A bit late to finish it now, lacks leaves in winter and has gotten somewhat taller. I'm a slow worker sometimes :]

Ballpoint mania

This if from maybe a month ago. I love ballpoint pens. Went autistic on this one, penning in all them circles.

Yes... It is another owl. Sleeping in the morning suns delicious circle sunbeams. Circles are yummy

I think I'd like to do more pattern based image expreriments. The effect is kind of fab :]
