Halloween Figure Drawing

last night instead of handing out candy I was at the weekly figure drawing session.

I did take along some candy to hand out to the ghouls and gobblens attending the Halloween drawing event. These are all the ususal 2 minute-5 and 20 minute drawings.

Hi Mike,
The two drawings with the Witch's hat ROCK! Nice contrast and rim lighting. I really like the one with the model on the stool. Your seem to be keeping comic standard proportions in your life drawings? Or do you have heroically proportioned models at your school?

Really like the eerie contrast on the one with the witchhat on.

Keep up the good work!

The 1st one with the witch hat is out of sight, man! Great light and shadow with those pencils. Excellent pencils, Mike!

John, I am using charcoal, mostly compressed, sometimes in bigger sticks for the broader strokes and one of those big blending stubs.

JP, I do tend to idealize, but Shanna is actually very heroically porportioned, 8 heads tall at leat, like a fashion model. My fight is to not push that idealization which is what i do drawing comics and animation all day.

I also like the smoothness of shading and rhythm on the one with her back turned to us.

Maybe fewer witches would be burned if they'd all dress like this.
