The Drawing Club - Aug. 21st

Tonight's Drawing Club theme was the "French Maid" with the classic comedy/who-dunnit "Clue" playing in the background. The model was really good. I think she was a previous character (Audry Hepburn). Each week I have extremes of "I'm getting this stuff figured out" to "I'm freakn' never gonna figure this stuff out" while I'm drawing. But it never fails that when I get home and scan the drawings in, I find positives that I didn't see before. I'm really trying to just develop as a draftsman and do realize there are things that need to become second hand when I draw.

Here are tonight's highlights: (Click on the images to see larger versions)

The Drawing Club - Aug. 14th

This last week's theme was Circus Ringleader, with the movie inspiration being the Oscar winner, "Greatest Show on Earth". It was a tough week for me. The model was almost always straight forward and really didn't do much. Thus, most of my shots are the same angles..even when I picked up and moved around. Frustrating..but whatever. Move on to next week!

The Drawing Club - Aug. 7th

This weeks theme was "Accidental Tourist". There was a lot to the costume and character, sometimes too much for the time with each pose. But after the beginning sketches, I got into the groove. I had a few drawings toward the end that I just really got into. All in all..some more good choices for my portfolio.

The Drawing Club - July 31

Tonight's Drawing Club was "El Luchador" the Mexican wrestler. It was slow at the start for me. I was afraid it was gonna be a repeat of two weeks ago..but he started getting into better poses as the night went on. But even better was my understanding of form. I know...that's something I should have gotten through my skull back in undergraduate. I guess it's true, if you don't use lose it. Good thing you can get it back!'s some sketches from tonight! Enjoy!
