Monday Life Drawing



Here's a bit of drawing from a class at VFS on Monday. 2-5 min each. I was really working on recognizing surfaces and being a little more deliberate with what I put on the paper. A better experience with the model and ultimately a better drawing is the result. Although they may look a bit "messy", this is definitely a step forward in my drawing process. I've also noticed an improvement in my more illustrative and cartoony drawings after revisiting this concept of showing surface change. Thanks to Mr. Glenn Vilppu for being awesome and helpful! Oh ya, my skills of fitting photoshop scans together need some work too, I'll try and post some more from this class to get some practice lol.

Exquisite strokes. Great attention to relaxed and contracted muscles especially with the top drawing. I definitely want to see more.
