|Going for "speed" here. The pose felt like he should be moving.|
|Pushing the details on the back here to show the "stress" in the pose|
|Influenced by my painted stuff earlier in the year. Less is more.|
|Tried to have the neck line move continuously into the torso|
|Graphite stick. Might edit the leg out, really happy with it in general thou.|
So the second half of the class was an exercise where in the model takes a pose we draw, then the model rotates 90 degrees and takes up the same pose. I loved this and really went to town trying to push the silhouettes and the volumes.
|Really happy with the light on the back here|
|This drawing is what I was trying to achieve in the class that night. Pushing volumes and shapes to heighten the gesture.|
And for 1 pose, we had the model rotate 3 times. Think the second 2 drawings illustrate the idea I was going for. Extremely happy with them.
|Got a little carried away with the shadows. But you can see where the shape goes in the next drawing.|
|One of my favorite drawings of 2012. really happy with the light and extreme gesture|
|Pushed the shapes of the shoulders here to convey the model's size.|
