monday night lifedrawing 2011 08 01 + a wip
Late posts for the latest Monday night life drawing! Mostly because I wasn’t very happy with what I did this time.
The first drawing took roughly forty minutes. Thirty minutes into this we realised we’d forgotten to turn on a strong light source, so my shading looks like a mixed of the strong shadows and the more neutral ones from the start of the session. Not a terribly flattering drawing, unfortunately. With the second picture, I was working more from the new light source and pushed a bit harder with how much I can do with an ink wash.
The more life drawing sessions I attend, the more I learn about myself, my art preferences and different tips I can work into other things. For example, as much as I love vellum for markers, I do not like it so much for soft, smudgeable charcoals and pencil washes.
To fill out this post a bit more, here’s a screenshot from the rough what was going to be my latest piece for my current assignment in class:
This would have been my latest piece if I hadn’t lost the file anyway :B
