Here are some more figures from Glenn's, we had a 3 hour pose! Unfortunately, it was a back view and I didn't know enough to carry on the drawing for 3 hours, so I started doing studies of the figure from different angles....Glenn gave me some great advice the other day....basically what he said was that I was having trouble with the 2d aspects of drawing, that I should draw while looking at the model...i.e. not down at my paper! It works, I'm surprised at how little I look at the paper now, and everything is tons more accurate.
Also, I finally got my shit together and painted my friend Candice's portrait, it's not the best portrait ever, but in terms of color temp and paint handling I think it's one of my better efforts.
