    littlejohn's life drawings

    Here are a few from two weeks ago. All are on 18x24" Canson Biggie Sketch paper using a 2B Conte crayon.

    Sorry for the bad reproduction. Any c&c welcome.

    very nicely done... i like how you're keeping the negative in mind in your compositions. Very nice for 2 minutes. I can't wait for school to start back up again, so i can jump into clothed fig 3.

    thanks for sharing! very cool!

    I started my portraiture class today. I'm pretty excited.

    Here are some 30 second gestures from today's session.

    yo

    I like the portraits stuff. When you do figure drawings keep in mind of haveing the whole figure fit on the page, from all of these drawings you leave of the feet or they aren't finshed. But good stuff,Keep working , I am.

    Whats your thoughts on blocking out areas? How did you determine those areas needed blocking out for the negative shapes? I am a noob at this stuff....

    ELWOOD: Thanks for the tip. I tried to incorporate your feedback in last Friday's life drawing session.

    Manta_Ray: I'm by no means an expert, but I try to look at the background when I draw figures in tone. The contrast between dark parts of the background and light parts of the figure shape my interpretation of the scene. I'm only trying for 3 values and interesting negative shapes just seem to show up. It doesn't always work:

    Man, this is just great stuff! I especially dig the blue-tinted batch. And those gesture drawings are totally rad.

    Keep posting!

    Hey, mate... you blew me away! Excellent line - I HAVE to do this too - what are you working with? What kind of paper? What size? Charcoal? What kind? Tell me EVERYTHING!

    Dang!

    Ochre Face, MolvaDo & NoonThirty: Thanks a lot for the comments.

    Oblio: These are all drawn on 18x24 sketch paper using 2B black Conte crayons. I sit on one of those strange horse benches with my pad propped up in my lap. Half of the drawings are done at open life drawing sessions and the other half at my portraiture class.

    Life drawing is really a life-long pursuit. I've been doing it for four years now and there are people where I draw at that have done it for forty.

    I'll post more as soon as I have a chance to shoot them.
