Life Drawing Week 4

Here is a batch from this weeks open life drawing at DCAD
This week they didn't do any getsures to warm up, which I didn't like or agree with so I did some quicker drawings anyway to warm up. I got them to have a single spotlight on the figure at least, but some people complain it's too dark to see to draw...aggh!





Some quick drawings I did of folks standing around on a break.

I did this directly as a conture drawing with no underdrawing. A larger version here

I want to keep at this as it's really the best type of drawing to me, but goddam it's frustrating at times!

Nice stuff, Mr. Manley. Life drawing is not any easy task. I remember wasting 3-4 sheets before getting down a decent work back in ye olde college days. It's too easy to fall back on cartoony features, but well worth the exercise. In fact, I may ask the wife tonight if she'll pose for me...

I like the second one (standing pose) the best.
I left a more detailed commentary on thedrawingboard.

These look a little warmer from last week, keep going. Funny, I like the guy in clothes best, he feels more tossed off cartooned which I think means you were more relaxed/ confident. or didn't have time to fuss.
