Three great drawings to share with you today. The first is of the actual model. The next two, I used the model’s pose to draw one of my thesis characters, Lady Elomere.
Yesterday I entered the marvelous world of character design class. I am learning alongside several friends from previous classes and am being taught by Nicolas, one of the best teachers at the Academy and who is also very funny.
We started off with several notes and a general discussion on how to create a character and what traits and mannerisms certain archetypical characters all possess. Then Simone modeled for us and we were encouraged to “push” a few of the drawings, as you’ll see below. We also had the opportunity to draw several 10 second drawings, which I had never done before, set to AC/DC’s “Shoot to Thrill” – the best way to draw fast EVER.
Here are the pictures I submitted for my final project in Clothed Figure class. Why Clothed Figure you ask? Why not. Our teacher had us keep a shetchbook all semester and we submitted our best drawings. So here they are. Enjoy.
Had a fantastic model on Monday who wore very cool clothes. Here she is:
Seraphina is one of the best models at our school, hands down. I love her poses and costumes. Here are the drawings I did of her for my midpoint on Monday. Enjoy.
Yesterday I went to Union Square with my clothed figure class and had a grand time let me tell you. Here are the drawings that came out of Thursday’s session.
Today I felt like I could draw. It was a great feeling. Things are starting to groove together in clothed figure drawing. I am enjoying this class immensely and have learned a great deal about folds in two short weeks.
Practicing drawing folds in clothes of people in motion. Fun stuff.
Here are my drawings from Thursday’s Clothed Figure Class. The model was super fun and really got into character with her poses.
