WIP Portrait

Greetings everyone! Today’s post is a portrait that I have been working on and off for the last two months. It is still in its early stages, and I am hoping to complete it soon.  The reference is from Croquis Cafe photos archive. The photos are free and according to them, you can “[d]ownload them, draw from them, repost them, do with these photos as you will”. Their only caveat is that you keep their Croquis Cafe Logo in place.  Sweet!!

By the way, I am not affiliated with Croquis Cafe whatsoever. They are amazing, because they have such liberal usage rights when it  comes to their photos! That is a rare thing my friends! Have a great weekend!

Figure Rendering Study

Figure Rendering StudyGreetings everyone! I hope everyone is in good health and is having a great week.  Today’s drawing was all about taking the figure from gesture to semi-finished drawing. Also working on my ability to draw  and talk at the same time. Believe it or not it is quite difficult to do both. I have decided to start posting short clips of my self in the studio; just another means to hold myself accountable and to share what I love doing.

Figure Sketch Demo

Figure Sketch

Greetings everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying the Fall season. Here is a figure sketch demo that I did in graphite pencil. This was a loosely drawn sketch. I started out the gesture using the scribble technique. Focusing on negative shapes (between her torso and right arm, between her legs) to helped me to determine correct proportions. This was a very challenging pose to draw, given the contortions of the model body.
