Life Drawing in February

Sketches from our group's second session. Same model, while occasionally drawing my sketch pals. During this series, I switched back and forth between pencil, a Multiliner marker and Pentel Pocket Brush.

Lynch Sketching

My buddy, artist Sean Lynch dropped by my Intro to Comics class for a Q & A and workshop. We had a great time talking Story, Comics and Storytelling. While he worked with students I had a quick chance to sketch up this profile portrait.

Life Drawing in January

I joined my pals, Sean Lynch, Sam Hiti and Peter Wartman for a life drawing session at Sean's place on a Sunday in January. Like Sam said, you're probably gonna have a good session if your model has pink hair! It was real good to blow it out and draw like this for 2.5 hours intensely, and especially from life. I find I prefer this in general to nude models, which is obviously instructive, but practicing clothing folds and natural poses have much more to do with my daily work, both professional and personal.

We met once again since, and I hope to again...perhaps this Sunday?

Crits and Skrits

With a class of twenty, a full-class, verbal critique takes up too much time, even during a weekly five-hour session. So, I have students write comments on each other's sheets posted up next to their assignments. It takes far less time, and they get more feedback from their peers with each new piece every week.

And during those periods, and studio time, I get a chance to sketch a bit while they work...

Digi-Ladies

For my sketch warm-ups in Manga Studio today, I was going for simplification and an expressive line. All based on photos, I changed bits, enhancing features I wanted to play up, and removing/replacing elements I didn't care for. There's a limit to what one can learn from just copying photos.
