More life drawing

Computer bluescreened while saving last night, grrr.

Luckily analogue media survived... though charcoal is much more temporary in many ways,

Here are some highlights from this weeks life drawing.

2 mins - charcoal on tracing paper. Took me FOREVER to loosen up.

only one of my earlies worth saving, charcoal on my beloved simili japon hotpress

Paints coming, when they are ready :)

Sci fi!!

Heylo blog checkers!
I'm having a real sci-fi time atm, started getting back into it, just a quick drop of a sketch i did earlier, ref'd from a shot taken by the ISS. The quick interceptor design is based on the underside the the space shuttle uses for atmospheric reentry. I tried to suggest both atmospheric and vacum based engines. I'll upload some more sketches of ships based on those theories.

Life drawing


I'm thinking a change of tact is in order for my blog. The reason i updated weekly was to give myself a marker, a visible point at which i could measure how much work i was doing weekly, looking for patterns in subjects and media to see what i was missing. Now i'm doing a lot of drawing i will only be uploading what i consider good work, instead of everything i do, hopefully this will force me to really work on a solid standard. I will still try and update weekly though, but probably a bit more choice cuts.

But first!!

Life drawings.
Went to Candid arts in Angel, i am VERY rusty.
