a friend of mine and i just had a short life drawing session with his two love-birds.
we both were working with ink and brush (was his first try at ink/brush).
it was quite a hard time as the two suckers were damn hard to spot in certain poses. they're flying free in his room, that didn't make it easier, too.
on the other hand, WHEN we were able to spot a clear pose for sketching away, it was always the same.
he promised me that he'll register here and post his attempts, too.
here are mine:
- no. 1 - tiny sketches. every bird is about 1-2 inches -
- one inbetween bird. i started warming up with my brush and became more confident with the birds' shape. size: ~3-4" -
- no. 3 - more elaborate bird, also around 4" and two heads -
all were done with a #2 synthetic bristle brush.
little goodie that wa son the page with the first doodles:
a lil' cockroach. pencil and overworked with pigment inkpens 0.2mm, 0.5mm and 0.7mm. not from life, of course
critics and comments highly appreciated.
