Mark's Class - Sunday

Mark tried to help me with shoes.

The model last Sunday had a Gangs of New York inspired costume which I changed into a Muskateer and a Cowboy. My shoulder hurt and I was in a lot of pain during much of the class.

Chimaera at the Getty

Went to the Getty Villa on Wednesday and took the Drawing from Antiquity Class taught by Jaime Ursic. She seemed inspired by the "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" Methodology.
When did a lot of exercises.
Blind Contour Drawing (never look at the page while drawing).

Contour Drawing (never let the pen come off the paage).

Another Drawing. I like this one because there is a lot of energy here.

More sketches

This drawing is with someone describing the Chimaera to me without me looking at it.

A detail of the claw.
Quick Gesture drawings.

Pencil sketch that I like a lot. The last drawing of the day.

Central Library

I did this drawings at the Central Library in Downtown LA on 5th and Flower. I'm going to go there again and draw some time soon and see if I can do a little better.

Glenn's Last Class - Nov 14

I thought I was drawing like crap yesterday but now when I look at them again I don't think they are so bad. I think these were 3 minute poses. I bumped up the contrast in Photoshop this drawings are much lighter in reality. I'm ready to take a break from Glenn's classes. They classs was too big and Glenn hardly spoke to me over the 7 weeks. I was disappointed but maybe later I will realize I learned more than I thought I did. Right now I just feel like I've but a lot of time over the last 15 months into figure drawing and I have so far to go. I was I had started my blog but then so I could really look at last year's drawings.

November 7th - Trying to Find the Bean

A lot of this class was about trying to find the bean. I didn't do well. Glenn even told me I didn't get it - which made me kind of sad.

Glenn Vilppu's Bean drawing

Glenn's bean drawing.
Another Glenn drawing which is very rare. I've never seen him draw on my paper.

I started to try too hard and get super obvious.

As I looked more and more my drawings tightened up.
