    Heya! I'm starting a new thread now to keep some order and because I moved to florence and started at the angel academy of art.
    .
    .
    .

    NUMBERS: I still give a number to every painting/drawing created, I started with #1 on 1.1.2004. reeally bad drawings don't get a number and don't get scanned in either - besides these you can see pretty much everything I do in this thread, as a documentation of my process (which I hope there will be... )

    we had to do gesture sketches of the drawings we had traced, but in a bigger scale.. kiiiinda hard...?!
    (focus on idea/line-concept though, not too much on proportions yet)

    there's a quiet (probably rather unknown) museum near the place I live, with awesome old master paintings, a last supper by andrea del sarto and some of his drawings. did some copies/studies/whatever there:

    one more, on the left are the originals
    as said before, we had to copy the gestures on the white sheet to a bigger scale, using a knitting needle for measurements..

    life drawing
    I tend to go to the details to soon
    we're still supposed to stay in the gesture phase and get these very accurate
    the one on the right is from the evening short poses session, 5 minutes so no time for measuring. I went over it again before scanning to get the lines darker. the measured one does not look THAT much better, I dont know if thats a good or a bad sign

    would you mind kind of explaining the procedure a little? and at the risk of sounding like a rube, that picture of your tools had me scratching my head. are those pencils like, crazy lead sticking out time, or what? oh, i like your sketchbook, too.

    -j-: ok, the needling process:

    1.
    take model and place on model stand

    2.
    put paper on drawing board, put drawing board on easel

    3.
    draw vertical (aha!) plumbline on paper, mark hight of drawing, e.g. 25cm. for standing figure, 20 for seated, mark top, bottom and middle on plumbline

    4.
    take your plumbweight (with string attached, hold it up and find a plumbline on the model. something in the center of the figure makes sense, maybe in relation to the feet and (/or) top of figure. it's also very handy if the plumbline runs through significant points such as points of change of direction at knee, elbow, etc. lay down plumbweight and try to remember exactly where you decided to run your plumbline through the model. when you're not shure, check again with the plumbweight.

    5.
    first, mark altitude and angle of hips and shoulders. take your knitting needle and measure. e.g.: measure from top of the head (mostly = top of the drawing = top of the plumbline on your drawing paper) down to the hips like so: hold your knitting needle in front of you so that its top meets the top of the models head, then try to mark the altitude of the hips with your thumb. (kinda hard and awkward, but you get used to is.. ) keep this measurement marked with your thumb and check --- how many times this measurement fits into the whole figure ---. so, since you measured from the top of the figure down to the hips thats already -1 time- on your counter. move down your hand and put the top of the needle where your thumb was before. now see where the "bottom" (= zero altitude..) of the model is, (probably at the feet) and try to name how big the overlapping part of the needle is, compared to the measurement you took before (top of head to hips). what you get might be something like:
    man explaining this is a pain in the ass, I should make a video or something...
    aanyway:

    6.
    now go back to your drawing paper (you were measuring on the model until now) and place a guess, a pencil mark where you THINK the hips could go. then redo the measuring just described. measure down (on your drawing) from top of the drawing (top of the plumbweight = (probably) top of the head of the model) down to where you placed your mark and check if this new measurement --- also fits into the whole height of your plumbline (top of plumbline to bottom of plumbline on drawing paper) the same two and a half times.

    so you measure on the model and get: "my measurement (top of head - hips) fits in the whole figure two and a half times."
    and compare it with the mark of the position of the hips on your drawing. if it only fits in 2 times, your measurement is too big, which means you placed the hips too low. ecco: erase the mark and place it a little higher. then check again until you end up with "my measurement (top of plumbline - pencil mark of hips) fits into the whole height of my plumbline two and a half times".

    I hope that makes any sense....
    you can of course measure from the bottom of the drawing/model or compare the measurement from hips to bottom of chin or to measurement from left elbow to right elbow etc.
    start with big measurements/big distances first!

    phew..

    tried to measure everything. I tend to start eyeballing very early and thus often get some big measurements wrong..
    excessive measuring doesn't work for me, though, as this drawing perfectly shows..

    the optional evening figure drawing was packed with people, no place left for me, soo I spent some time studying my favorite cast, the flayed figure. fell in love with it.. incredible shapes
    drawing turned out prettier than expected, seems my eye is getting better!
