Hello Again Blogger!

Wow, I Guess it's been a while, here's two very different sketches from recently


The GODBOTS! finally return with the KRAKEN...I'll be getting more of these done in the near future...


...and something much more serene, I'm actually trying to push myself to simplify my color sketches mainly to work on color interaction and lighting more than anything, plus I do loads of ugly stuff as is.


I've been up to a lot of art but haven't really been documenting it for the blog here in SOME time, I'll be  rectifying that situation over the next month, so look out for more art!

Figure Drawing Fall 2010 Part Eighteen

....and we arrive at the final post of the fall figure dump, so let's end with some work from an open model session from the very end of the summer. These are all 30 seconds to 3 minutes...


....some details from the above full page...


...and some final detail shots to wrap this all up...


....and that will do it for the fall! Whenever I get around to documenting the last three months worth of figure drawing, I'll start the Winter posts but I promise I'll put up some other art before then!

Figure Drawing Fall 2010 Part Seventeen

...for part seventeen, it's all about arm anatomy, the following are some diagram drawings with detail shots documenting my attempt to explain the muscles of the arm to my summer life drawing class...


....I really don't know how successful I was in breaking this information down into understandable bits for the students, hopefully they found this helpful and not just overwhelming! I'll return with the eighteenth and final installment of this fall figure madness soon....

Figure Drawing Fall 2010 Part Sixteen

...and I return with part sixteen of this series to open this week...these are all from an open model session and range from 30 seconds to three minutes...


....as always a bunch of detail shots follow the full page above....


....and more detail shots....


....you guessed it, more detail shots...


....only two posts to go and then I'll post something besides figure drawing! Be back soon with part seventeen.....

Figure Drawing Fall 2010 Part Fifteen


...and as promised a quick return for part fifteen, these drawings are from a summer workshop on exaggeration principles for the figure and using the figure to communicate stories. Our model once again is the inspiring Jason Farrah...


...details of the above full sheet, this was concentrating on the ideas of squash and stretch and applied and directional forces...


....then we got into the idea of "plusing" poses and a concept Walt Stanchfield called "clearing the stage". It's really all about making sure that gestures really clearly tell the audience their story...


....a bunch of details shots of the above...


....we're getting close to end of this series, two or three more posts and then I'll post some other artwork of the recent past...but I'll be back with part sixteen later this week...
