Figure Drawing Finals

Hello everyone! Late post, I apologize. I have for you now my figure drawing final! I hope you enjoy it. Instead of a female I chose to draw my good friend Derek Morin. He was rather pleased with how this turned out. The final was 3 hours long and I had to use nothing other than pencils and bristol board. It was 18″x24″ in size. I was pretty impressed with myself that I was able to whip something like this out so fast! I guess I am learning something. I am not entirely happy with the face in this, but mostly the body. Funny, how I spent the least amount of time on it and mostly on the portrait. Let me know what you think!

3hr Drawing - Pencil + Bristol @ 18"x24"

As for the previous class, I thought I had a pretty good final drawing in it. It was our longest drawing yet with a live model coming in at 45 minutes! I found the pose to be exciting and it had some good lighting and shadows to work with! I apologize for the crappy photos. The quality isn’t as good as my scans, but I don’t know how else to capture these large images other than my cell’s 5MP camera. Here it is!

45min Drawing - Pencil, Charcoal, and Marker @ 10"x24"

I have a Toon-Boom animation that I’m working on. I’m cleaning up just a little bit of it to give it that “icing on the cake”, but it should be ready for upload soon. I really want to show it and do more of them! Hopefully I’ll have it tomorrow!


Sick Again…

Hey guys. I know that I had you expecting a new 10-second Club stop-motion piece up tonight, but I only got it half of it done. What started as just this light, empty cough, turned into a full-blown fever and body-ache disaster. I had to stop shooting and there’s just no possible way for me to go to my classes tomorrow. This totally sucks. Before the disease bomb I was able to go to my figure drawing class and do a nice 3-hour long drawing session. It was a lot of fun, and I managed to get at least one piece out of it that I’m proud of. This was a 15-minute long drawing and is about 12×20 inches big. Tell me what you think!

Forgive the crappy photo. I tried my best. Newsprint just doesn’t photograph that well and an 18×24 piece of paper does not fit in a flatbed scanner by any means.
