25th June 2010

At the brit museum as per normal, this time focusing my effort on just figuring out proportions and form on the face of a sculpture. About 40 odd minutes perhaps? Still need loads of work.


24th June 2010

It's life drawing day today. After a few 2 and 5 minute warmups, we proceeded to do two 40min long drawings, with a focus on developing our skills to get proper proportion. I still have a *long* way to go lol ;-)

Love the challenge though ;-)

19th and 20th June

Aieee! Too tired from this hectic weekend and forgot to post (see my work/photo blog) but I did do my sketch-a-day practice :)

Starting on form studies now. I think for tonight I will try to put in an effort for gesture as well, at least a quick one.

Above is whilst on the train to Portsmouth.

18th June 2010

The friday drawing jaunt at the british museum. Apart from these gesture studies, also spent a little time playing with using ellipses to draw the form - fun but my results are crap.


17th June 2010

Quick gesture plus laying in a bit of the forms. The rest of the evening was spent attempting to get proper proportions out. Difficult :(

6th June 2010

Got a year's pass to the zoo today, and spent the afternoon trying to have a go with gestures with the critters. Here's a few of the "better" ones :D

4th and 5th June 2010

Forgot to upload again >.<

First up, two gesture studies from the brit museum. Roughed in the gesture using my new Rotring 2mm clutch pencil (which I like the feel) followed by attempting to get some form in, this time switching over to a 3mm 7B clutch

Today's was trying to understand why Ken Hultgren chooses action lines as those he chooses, I basically tried to do the gesture using what I can feel, then drew Ken's action lines over mine to try to understand the difference.
