    Cool Bridgeman drawings. While studying his books I found it very helpfull to watch Vilppu's DvD's on construction and anatomy.

    Keep up the good work. Cheers!

    Loomis heads

    I was studying the head from Bridgman but I got lost, the way he constructs the head is so different. So I'm back to Loomis. These are some of my studies from the first part of the book "Drawing the head and hands". I've done lots of his heads, these are my favorites.

    Some quick poses

    I'm preparing myself for life drawing classes. The first four poses were drawn in 2 minutes and the last one in 10 minutes.

    male nude

    3 studies 10 minutes each. My sketchbook is small and I'm not measuring right, so the figures don't fit the page, shame on me. I'll try to fix this next time.

    Great studies and evolution! I instantly recognized the Loomis studies, since I'm all about Loomis everyday now.

    Great watercolors and some nice studies
    For studying you can join the Spartans camp in community activities, it is a nice group + you get some feedback
    Good luck

    My first life drawings

    Now I have a model working for me. I've done my first drawings from my model. We worked for one hour, I've done 3 poses of 5 minutes and 2 poses of 15 minutes. I'm not happy with the results. The A2 size is too big and I'm using a HB conte charcoal stick which I've found too dark and hard. Also another problem I had is to find a good pose for the model. I didn't have any idea how to settle him. I wish some one here could give some tips for improvement.

    Hey Cristina well done on getting your own model, that will help you improve in so many areas. In an effort to help you find poses for your model had you thought of checking out the Fine Art forums here. There are a lot of threads there with some lovely life drawings, you could look through and take note of any your like for your model to try. Depending on the length of pose I also think you want to try to avoid to much symmetry, so making sure the head is different angle from the torso, hips varying from the torso and legs and arms also at slightly different angles from each other, so if one arm is bent you might have the other straight. Obviously you need to make sure it's comfortable for the model!

    Also ask your model what poses he can do, some practice holding different poses which you can then tweak to your liking. Another option is to look at your favourite Master artists drawings for ideas of poses. As always we learn by copying at first but I'm sure once you get more used to it you will soon know how you want to pose the model. Great to see you doing this though.
