Life Drawing week 4/10

First off a big thank you to those who are now following and those who take the time to comment it is very flattering. I've been a little quiet of late due to laptop failure but hopefully now normal service will resume.
Here are my most recent life drawing pics. As you can see two of them are white on black and I've also included a warm up sketch that I liked. The proviso for that one was that we were not allowed to take the pencil off the paper. This gave some interesting results.

..but the flower sucks

So here's another speedpaint. I did this on an intuos rather than my cintiq I think it shows, it doesnt have the energy of the one I did previously. Plus the flower and butterfly are terrible but I thought Id stop fussing over it and post it as is.
Oh well, back down to earth, I guess I'll have to make a better go of the next one.

Life Drawing - Week 3/10

More on negative space, and this time with a female model yay! On a side note I was apalled to observe I only posted 11 times last year, and most of those was at the end of the year. Its the beginning of Feb and I've done nearly half of what I did last year. Here's to a more productive year.

Life Drawing - Week 2/10

The choice cuts from week 2 - this week we were drawing with charcoal at the end of a stick in order to loosen us up, it made me more tight. There is one pic which is a longer pose and I was trying to use negative shape to structure my image rather than constructing the anatomy.

Afterwork Speedpaint

Hey, so this took my about an hour. It's the first piece Ive done in a good while that's excited me, I think it shows. There is nothing untoward going on here just a father and daughter going camping or something.
