The. Thick. Of. It.

So busy lately. Sleep deprivation. Mood swings. Exhaustion. Poor diet. I found myself weaping profusely at 2am one night, watching some rap video on youtube, scrawling grad school assignments that I’m dreadfully lucky are all seeming to work out. That’s not … Continue reading

Naked people @ weird angles.

3 figures in different perspectives (reclinig 2pt, sitting 3pt, walking 2pt vertical). We were allowed to use photographs for anatomy reference, but not allowed to draw from actual poses. I used more reference on the 2pt reclining then the others, … Continue reading

A little extra credit experiment…

Based on a common Paris Hilton photograph. Use Google Image search if you’re that interested. This one was about understanding how to make your model look the way you want them to look, even if they don’t. So I made … Continue reading

Two figure composition: Telling a story…

Originally I was going to have a friend pose for at least one of the characters in this, but the plan fell through. I had some thumbnails with a woman, but I pretty much had this idea from the start … Continue reading

Self Portraits.

Not bad, not bad. Really cut it close on the deadline this time. Big research paper was due, held me up quite a bit.

Foreshortening Extreme!

I’m pretty impressed with both of these, which is saying a lot considering how little sleep I’ve had.

Fairy Study, Folds emphasis.

These were all completed yesterday. My wife was a real trooper (though I think she enjoyed it quite a bit) for letting me dress her up in silly outfits and take her photo / draw her. The first one is … Continue reading
