Life Drawing Workshop - Angela

Angela Terracotta. 18" x 24" on 50 lb Canson in colored pencil.

Angela debuted for this weeks Life Drawing Workshop. We start off with two minute warm up drawings, then the model takes one long pose, broken into 20 minute segments, for the rest of the night.

I create a new drawing during each segment, often experimenting with different media. This time, I experimented with those big rectangular blocks of graphite. I think I love them! Big and flat on one side, and pointy on the corners, it's like using a brush, except it's graphite!

The graphite drawing are below, 2 minute drawings first, then the 20 minute studies.

sketchbook - drawing other people

Sometimes, I draw the other people in the life drawing workshop between the poses. I've sat next to this fella a bunch of times, but simply cannot remember his name right now. But dang, with a nose like that, you think I'm not gonna draw him?

sketchbook - Jason Witten portrait sketches


Jason Witten # 82. Dallas Cowboys.

Alternate sketches for a soon to be published illustration about football stars.

5 x 8. pencil. sketchbook.

We decided to go with a full body action pose for the final illustration, leaving these battered warrior sketches for another day. I'll post the final illustration, sketches and the published piece in June, when it hits the newsstands.
