    Sketches of Lauren, who I'll (inadvertently and unintentionally) be painting twice over the next couples of weeks. On much larger canvases than the small portraits I've been posting. It will be an interesting experience.

    Whenever I have absolutely nothing better to do (like waiting for my computer to load, waiting for figure drawing to start, or when I'm microwaving leftovers), I whip out a sketchbook and start drawing whatever's around me. Here's a small example of that. And some drawings of ladies.

    Finally some stuff from July's Austin Drink-n-Draw and August's Dr. Sketchy Austin.

    I had more stuff but they magically vanished from my hard drive. I should probably take a break and stop bumping this thread for a while anyways. I'll post more later.

    Full pose in china marker and a few portraits in pencil. I really loved doing these. Getting a lot more comfortable drawing.

    A couple of years ago, my professor gave us an assignment to draw an ideal male face and an ideal female face. The point of the assignment was to get us comfortable drawing a certain type of face/head so if we ever had to draw a head in the future then we would remember our ideal faces and recreate those. It sounded amazing in theory, but our curriculum was insane. We were given very few anatomy lessons and absolutely no life drawing sessions. Also, the assignment was to be completed in a weekend. The following Monday, we were "tested" by given a blank sheet of paper and told to draw our ideal heads without reference. Since very few of us had extensive experience drawing people in the past, most of us failed. Who can recreate a face after just a couple of minutes/hours worth of sketching?

    Anyways, these were done from photo reference. I was watching a movie and found this gorgeous girl, so I just kept taking nonstop screenshots. I remembered my absurd assignment and decided to give it a long run try. I'll see how much of her face I can absorb into my "default" or "ideal" female head.

    A couple more from last Sunday, Monday, and earlier today. I was starting to hate china markers because I'm losing control of the values. Then I realized that I can just sharpen them with a knife and it brings out a huge range of values. I'm working these things down to nubs. There's some extreme drawing going on here.
