    Fishw - Nice stuffs. The proportion are nice, especially on the reclining pose.(Those are damn hard to do) I like the rough textures the paper is giving you on the shaded drawings. Keep up the good work.

    Loop - I can't belive I am missing out on free workshop... So, this is what hell feels like hun? I am paying about $7.00 USD for 3 hour workshop. The models are not Loydd quality either. Better than nothing though. See the reason for my fetish in workshop?

    What city do you live in?
    I ran a life group under my house it could hold 15 people or 3 cars

    Find some people wanting to draw from life first who are committed on a regular basis to share costs.

    Find or have a space large enough to accomodate them that is private for the models. No one likes to be gawked at by non drawers.

    Check out the Universities or Art Schools to find the going rate for life models in your city you might also be able to advertise there for models.

    The model must feel safe and the people drawing act always in a professional manner toward her/him.

    If its difficult to find nude models start with bikini or clothed etc if they get confident with your group they might go nude eventually, better to have someone than noone.

    Here is one mans successful method for getting models

    Here's some figure drawings I did this semester. Sorry if you've already seen this stuff in my thread. Most of these are 2 hour sessions; however, some are nearly 4 hour drawings. Crits are welcome.

    Loop - Let's see what those free workshop is like.

    Big Keith - First year hun? You seems to be on a great start, while attending the best animation school inthe world. It must be freezing in Ontario by now.

    SprayNation - Nice feeling of light. Some of the head seems to be a little on the large side though. DSCF0013_18.jpg and DSCF0021_10.jpg are the ones I am talking about. They are not large in measurments but they just seems large.(sounds confusing doesn't it?) I think the issue is mainly about the feeling of convincing structure. For exmaple, the female figure(DSCF0021_10.jpg) feels like the shapes are accurately copied onto the paper without much of emphasis on the "volume" they represent. As a result of this, the drawing loose the feeling of convincing or belivable torso in relation to the head and the limbs. Thus making a accurately drawn image seems out of proportion. Just my opinions, could be right or wrong.


    Gotto love drawing from life model. 5~15 minutes

    le fish - thanks for the crit man! I agree with what you said. Part of the problem deals with how I approach the gesture. I feel like I treat the bottom portion of the body (the waist down) from the top part as independent parts. I definitaly gotta' work on my gestures. Anyway, I really like how you are using the charcoal stick to define mass and volume! You're hitting landmarks on the figure and disregarding alot of unnecessary information, which is great. The second gesture is particularily nice; however, I would watch the size of your drawings. It looks like you're barely fitting the figure on the page, thus squashing body parts to fit.

    big keith - I remember that temperature... it almost freezed my *^$&#6 off...

    eager - I am currently studying in San Francisco. Not sure where I will be next. Hopefully with my friends. *smile*

    Loop - Got it.

    SparyNation - My figure drawing teacher always tell me "Simplify the figure is the hardest thing to do." You are totally right about the strangely shortened legs. There are three things causing it.
    1. My board was place did not get lifted up to the right height. Causing distortioins in drawing. (2%)
    2. I am sitting too close to the model.(3%)
    3. My stupid head is not working properly. Need some smacking. (90%)
    Thanks for pointing them out. *smile*

    I decided to join.

    le_fish Very nice drawings.I like how you only suggest some parts of the
    drawing.

    Some life drawings about 15 minutes each.My lines are quite messy for now.
    I think I should watch the proportions mainly.Also I should feel the unseen parts .

    heartbeat - Glad you like them. I only have 2~5 minutes to capture them. So I try to get away with as much as I can. Your proportion looks fine to me. Perhaps making more decisive line might help.(Longer and/or darker lines) Don't be afraid of making miastakes, that's how we grow.

    DerMidlet - Er... Don't know about the free workshop. I am paying for mine... Who are you by the way?(I know you are from the Academy...)

    fishw - Thanks for the kind words. I wish I was on fire, except I am just on a tight budget. Nice studies by the way.

    heartbeat - Large pad is good... large the better.(No pun intended)

    mermuse - Really nice drawing. I love the loose feeling of the drawing. Everything just comes together with few emphasis of the dark accents. I have also been enjoying your paintings.(although I never posted much there...)

    Female model today. I probably hang around naked people too much...

    Dude, I think you just need to control the size of your drawings. It seems like you're getting all involved in the action of drawing, and not telling yourself how large you want the figures to be drawn, cause all of your figures are squashed as Main Loop says. Maybe try fitting 6-8 figures on a page instead of 1 or 2. I don't see how any of the reasons you gave are reasons for the problem.

    eager - Donno if there is ever too much life drawing. I know i haven't hit that point yet.

    Loop - Yeah, you are right about the legs. I am still struggling with the "drawing at the bottom of the page" distortion.

    Spraynation - Let me make this clear... 1 & 2 is refering to the setup that would naturally cause distortion due to perspective while viewing the model/drawing surface. If these setup were used and no correction was made during the process of drawing, the drawing will be distorted. Since The wrokshop I was attending didn't have much room for me to setup properly. Thus the only way to make it work is to use what I know to make the picture work. However, I got confused, this is where no. 3 comes in. *smile* I am not trying to make the picture sound "right". I am simply sharing the cause of the mistake so tht other people won't fall for the same trap I did. Guess my strange sense of humor made it confusing.
