I draw the webcomic Manly Guys Doing Manly Things and work on cartoons you might see on TV sometimes.

 

Yakuza dude life drawing model, he’s really fun but man suits are so hard to draw right because they’re so precise and geometric and hide a lot of the landmarks I’m used to looking for in figure drawing. 2-5 minute poses, I think, but I shuffled them all up condensing them onto seven pages.

Life drawing was awesome because we got to draw Stacy E Walker, perhaps more famously known as real life Red Sonja and the quintessential Heavy Metal cover girl. It’s a lot of fun drawing someone who knows and has modeled for all of the artists you admired growing up.

I dunno how long these were, but the longest are 5 minutes.

Some 1’s, 3’s, and 5’s, I think? This guy is definitely one of my favourite models. 

Someday I’ll remember to save myself enough time to draw faces…

I like this model a lot, he always comes with a different character in mind and plays that for the session

Life drawing started up again after months of hibernation so I tested out that new Mischief program and did an entire rusty session on one canvas. All vector based, the whole file only amounts to 1,188Kb. I had each pose the full size of the screen while I worked. 30 second to 5 minute poses.

Okay bleh distraction from the heavy stuff have some life drawings. I started going in with a copic marker but it was being super bleedy so I ended up switching to a really fine, stiff kuretake brush pen. Finer point than last time. Time was kind of all over the place because people were requesting she hold the poses longer but they’re all about 2-5 minutes.

I feel like every time I go to life drawing I end up drawing the model as though they’re a dozen different people with different bodies because every pose emphasizes a different part of the anatomy and I get wrapped up in exaggerating those features.

Wow, I just looked at these fullsize on my desktop and some of them are kind of shitty photos sorry about that.

Tried life drawing with a brush pen this time around.

The life drawing model we had today had a super awesome body type so of course I had to screw up every drawing I tried to do of her.

Strangers happening upon my sketchbook probably think I’m some kind of serial killer with all these pages full of naked shadowy, faceless, handless women.

Adventures in drawing the tiniest gestures possible.

30 seconds, 2 minutes, 5 minutes
