Thank you Croquis Cafe: The Artist Model Resource!! I took life drawing in college and its been literally a decade since I was able to practice gesture drawing with a nude model.
I used week #120 for today and my charcoal.
Wanted to share pictures of my dog. We adopted her a little over a year ago from our local Humane Society. She was severely under weight, hip bones and ribs were sticking out, and she was deathly sick. Even to the point where the vet offered to put her down, but I wouldn’t give up on this dog. For 3 months I nursed her back to health the best I could & kept watch over her during the worst of nights.
Now a year later she is the best dog I could ever ask for. The vet can’t even believe it’s the same dog.
I’m letting the matte finish spray dry before moving on to the final touches, which will be his eyes. I’m debating on using my Blue pastels for his eyes and perhaps red paint for ‘blood splatter’. But I’m not sure.
I’m terrible at making decisions…
What to do….what to do….
If you cant attend life drawing sessions. This is the best thing for you
Let me show you something I recently found : Croquis Cafe!
You get to see models of different colors and shapes in a life drawing setting. They move and breath while posing (breathing like in real life :O) ambient music is playing in the background and you have 1, 2 and 5 minute sessions. I find it very helpful , you should try it.
I took Life Drawing in college for two semesters where we had nude models of all ages (18+) and shapes.
I’m reblogging this because this is perfect for practice if you can’t find or attend a Life Drawing class near you.
I can’t find my white charcoal pencil and my white pastel isn’t working as well as I’d like, so I’m gonna have to wait to finish it.
I’m bummed though because I wanted Norman Reedus to sign it at Austin Comic con but he canceled due to filming conflict. :( and I wanted to give him a custom flask as a gift.
