Revolution In The Form Of A Costume

This weekend I had the extreme pleasure of drawing a new model with an amazing skill. She is an incredibly talented seamstress who makes her own period costumes. She made this Revolution-Era costume which she was gracious enough to pose in.

The thing weighs about 15 pounds, which doesn't seem that crazy until you have to pose in it.

I was also trying these Nitram Fusains charcoal sticks. They are like a compressed vine charcoal. Even the softest sticks are still pretty hard, but they are fun to work with. They have the strength of compressed charcoal with the flow of a hard vine charcoal.

These were done in 2-minute intervals. Seems like a tough subject to tackle right? The trade-off between the complexity of the fabric is the simplicity you can take advantage of by not having to draw legs and feet.

Not super-proud of the chair on this one but I like the head. Can't say for sure how long this pose was but I think it was about 15 minutes.

Twenty minutes. Other than her right arm getting a bit wonky, I like it. She added a few accesories to this one.

Wearing the dress finally wore her out. She switched back to nude 2-minute poses, which she excels at.

One of my favorite drawings of the day. This was essentially done by tracing the core shadow down throughout the body. It's super tempting to work more on it, but it's almost always best to leave it alone at this stage.

These 2 were attempts to capture what I had just done with the previous drawing, with less satisfying results.

Rounding out the series of drawings. Can you tell how tired we all were by now?
