This was my most successful drawing from the life drawing session I attended last night.
It was a really great and strange experience for me being back in a quiet room, no one on the internet or on their phones. Everyone just looking and drawing. Everyone working on art.
Figure drawing class used to really stress me out, but this time I was just there for me. There to try and better myself. Though every now and then I got this creeping feeling that whoever was running it was going to look over my shoulder and tell me that the legs were too long or whatever. Hopefully I’ll let that go for next time.
I’m really sorry for the lack of posts lately. I had gotten into a really good groove of posting more than once a week, but this summer has consumed me. I’ve been diving in, and spending all my time on my graphic novel. Which I have mentioned once or twice here before.
I think I’m going to show more updates on it as I work on the pitch.
I have been talking about “thumb-nailing” a lot lately. And when my sister asked me what that meant, I realized not everyone might know what I am doing. Above is a sample of my thumb-nailing process. On top I write the page of the script I am writing from and the bottom is the page count of the graphic novel itself.
As you can see its super rough and wonky. But it exists to remind me what I was thinking when I wrote it. I will make the finished pages based on these sketches!
