Just a quick sketch of a fairy I did a few weeks ago for Colour Collective on Twitter which I forgot to post on here. I actually used a pose from one of my life drawing sessions as a reference for this drawing.
I haven’t drawn a male model in a long time, and always find it more tricky than a female model, so this life drawing session was great practice for me. I don’t know if it”s because of the different shapes, but males I often find more difficult to draw and with these drawings I found myself taking my time more than I normally do with life drawing.
30 and 45 Minutes
Once again I stayed for most of the session this time which resulted in a few five minute poses, two thirty minute poses and a forty five minute pose. I even tried to incorporate some of the model’s reflection into my drawing. One of the five monte poses I could not fit onto the same page as the other two and also ran out of time to work much detail into it, so I may work back into it at some point.
These drawings are from the 19th of October, and this time I managed to stay for most of the session, meaning I got to draw an extra pose unlike my previous sessions.
We once again started with a few five minute poses before moving onto two thirty auntie poses and concluding with an hour pose. I did have to leave a bit early to catch my train home so I spent about forty five minutes on the final pose.
I was really great to stay for most of the session, however I do find it difficult drawing a pose for a full hour and wonder if I would prefer to draw a few separate, shorter poses instead.
Also, I think I really messed up the proportions of the standing pose, the head looks far to small too me, mind you it is at an odd angle.
My blog the past month has consisted of all of my inktober images, but while doing them I’ve also been life drawing a few times.
These images are from a session a few weeks ago and I stayed for the first half of the session, during which I once again drew a few five minute poses and two thirty minute poses.
I will post the rest of my life drawings throughout the week!
It’s a little late, but here is my final inktober image for 2017!
I originally didn’t know what I was going to do for the final image, but finally decided to create another poster, mirroring my first image, but this time including all of the circus characters that I have been drawing throughout the month.
It’s been great fun once again taking part in inktober this year, and hopefully I can do it again next year!
