    Looks nice. I really like the use of the colour in this one.

    Keep posting.

    Thanks. I’ve had a really long break from drawing and painting and am just getting back into the groove, so to speak. Recently, for my animation, I’ve been drawing an awful lot from photographs using vectors on the computer. Not drawing from real life in anger for about twenty years, I thought I’d apply the same principals I was using for the photo drawing to my hand; at least I can sit it fairly close to the monitor. All done with transparent vectors.

    It has been 27 years since I did life drawing. Yesterday I went to a class. Boy, am I rusty.

    First there were 30 second poses. What the heck? I was all kind of Eek! Then draw, draw, draw.

    Then 1 minute poses.

    Attachment 383558

    We had 5 minute poses before a couple of 15 minutes.

    Finally, there was a 30 minute pose, but I did it in charcoal and chalk, and don’t fancy cleaning my scanner. There was another one, but I had to leave to get across town back home to eat and sleep.

    Can’t wait until the next one, and I’m taking my son.

    Here's what I've been doodling at work today.

    Nice on the vector hand. I would suggest the next time you try this technique, to make the patches of color smaller and the opacity lower. Eventually, you'll get a very nice realistic flesh tones on the hand. Of course it'll involve a lot more layers, but the outcome is worth it.

    For your 30 second poses, I'd try adding more defining lines. Even if it's incorrect you still have the lines that'll represent the movement and rhythm.

    Good overall, can't wait to see more progress.

    I know. I’ve only been using the tablet for a short while and trying to get to grips with it. Big learning curve what with all the brushes I haven’t tried yet etc on DrawPlus 8. Thanks for encouragement – I’ll be working hard and posting what I can.

    These are some of my life drawing sketches from week 3 (there wasn’t much improvement in week 2). The model for the first half was dressed in a burlesque fashion. I decided I needed to loosen up so started scribbling with biro.

    Here's this week's batch. I seem to have focused on the knees a bit. About 20 minutes each.

    Wow, just looking in, you've got a lot of potential! I like the energy in your figure drawings, and the proportions are coming around. That first pastel may be a bit stiff, but it's got a great sense of light. Do a ton more pastels, and post them.

    i really like the scribble style you have with the figure drawings, and would love to see some more paintings. keep up the work and you'll catch up on that lost time soon enough!

    Thanks for the comments. I’m finding ballpoint a great way to concentrate and loosen up. This being week 5 of life classes and I’m just beginning to get to grips with the 30 second poses and begin to enjoy them; drawing smaller seems to help. This week's efforts.

    Not to sure about the minute ones. Reasonable body shape on the third figure, but the arms went a bit awry.

    5 minutes are nothing to write home about. Tightened up a bit.

    Attachment 403879

    The 10&15 minutes are not too deadly -starting to bring the background in to lend a hand with form.

    20 minutes. The first one didn’t quite get the fore-shortening of her leg right, and the second – I totally messed up her face, which is a shame as she’s pretty and has great cheekbones.

    30 minutes – I term that loosely, because someone split a drink above and it dripped all over my son’s work. The one comment of, “Quick grab a glass for free beer” cracked a few smiles in the class. It’s only now I notice that too many of the strokes are in the same direction. That thing under her breast is a hand.

    Here's a really old one showing how far I've got to go to get back to where I was before I move forward. Flesh - I want to draw flesh.

    Wow, you really do a lot more than me considering that I have much more time on my hands than most people. There are not many crits i can give yet espeically after seeing that last painting. But I think this little website will be great for you and anyone else willing to try
