    Thank you. I guess Chicago isnt exactly the place for meeting CA artists. Hopefully by the time you get out here we will have some kind of response for you. If it still needs to be said: i am interested.

    Brimstone is a lot of fun, I'll post some of the drawings when I get them scanned/photographed. About 12 people showed up for this one. There was still plenty of room for more. They have room for probably ~30 artists. It's usually on the 3rd Saturday of the month. The models have been really fantastic every time I've been there.

    Hey .6. thanks for the feedback in my sketchbook (awhile back). I've been definitely thinking of moving up to drawing live models.

    I've been looking into attending the open sessions at Palette and Chisel and then I've read the notice about the Brimstone on 11/17. Sounds live, but can anyone give some advice on how useful it would be for someone not quite familiar with live model drawing?

    Drawing live models takes some getting use to, especially if you're use to drawing from photos. People move. They cramp up after sitting a certain way for too long. They are alive. It's a wonderful experience and capturing the life of someone is part of the challenge. I would tell you to take a look at a few anatomy books first. Atlas of Human Anatomy by Stephen Peck is great.

    Per previous post....
    I have now moved from TN to the suburbs of Chicago! It has been roughly 2 weeks and everything is finally beginning to settle more.
    I would definitely like to get involved in a sketch group around here, I never have been involved in one before now. I would need a little more settling in time beforeI could find my way around and actually start focusing back on drawing and sketching.
    Right now I am planning on attending Harper community College in the Spring because I am about half way through an Associates and I want to at least finish it in case one day I decide to pursue a BA.
    Next Summer/Fall I plan on applying for SORA (School of Representational Art - www.representational-art.com). Hopefully I can make it in ,it seems like an amazing school. In the mean time I am just focusing on doing some Bargue drawings on my own and I would really like to make some friends in the art community up here.
    Cheers

    That sounds great. SORA is one of the few places around here ive considered giving my money to.

    Hey Latenite, i started out by drawing people from the upper level on the metra when i visited my friend who moved to his dad's. I would say that any drawing from life is helpful but it is a bonus when the subject is paid to hold still for a little bit. Drawing people on the cta can be tricky depending on the time of day. People seem to take offense, i dont know. That kind of drawing feels like good practice, though, it forces you to lay down a fast gesture.

    Metalyst- thanks for the Peck referral. I've looked at the book before and I agree that the book is really good. I've been trying to get a grasp on anatomy for about a year now and it was one of the first books I picked up in my studies. I definitely want a permanent copy on my shelf.

    .61803 - Yeah, I've tried sketching on the train and at the airport. Good 'til they catch you, then I find that everybody gets self-conscious.

    I'm hoping to be able to make it to P&C on Sat.- With it being my last free weekend before holiday crush I want to take advantage of it and get some drawing in. We'll see if I can make it into the city.

    NiyanaMae - welcome to Chicagoland.

    Whats good folks-

    I went to the Brimstone session at P&C on Saturday. It was cool, definite change of pace from drawing from photo reference. Was any of you there? Everyone seemed to keep to themselves and were focused on the models the whole time so I couldn't really tell if the other artists were regulars or what.

    I'm hoping to try to hit their meetup again next month. We'll see.

    Regretfully, I wasn't able to make it to the November meeting of the Brimstone Drawing Club. Even more regrettably, I probably won't be able to go to the December one either. I did, however scan a couple of my drawings from the October session, and they are in my sketchbook.

    Ive been meaning to go to the P&C at some point but it is discouraging living way out in the west suburbs and not knowing anyone else. Maybe we can all schedule a meetup time? I know .61803 had mentioned it before and I think it would be really neet to meet other artists in the area. We do not necessarily have to wait each month for the Brimstone event...we can meet at P&C anytime or even at a bookstore or coffee shop. Just a place to sketch and get to know each other.
    My schedule is pretty open...
    Cheers
