Last week's drawings:
This was my favorite, just because I love the gesture she was making.
Thanks to William Wray's blog I came across the Flickr page of Gamlet Koudaverdian who was a previously-unknown-to-me artist with some incredible life drawings. I love what he's doing. So much in fact that I printed out his drawings and took them with me to the life drawing session. I had them tacked up on my board as I was drawing.
Notice the influence?
I kind of liked putting multiple drawings on the same page without having them step on each other. I'm probably going to keep doing this.
I usually use the most rudimentary structure in 5-10 minute poses. I use a slightly more measured approach in the 20 minute drawings. Having some basic structure in a quick pose helps especially if you're planning on using a lot of tone because it will help you keep control of your drawing.
Having a good line quality makes your drawing better when you add in those necessary hard edges to define certain forms and boundaries. Having a reference of what you aspire to helps guide your drawing as you are drawing it.
