Old digital sketches

Some of the quick sketches done a while ago. Thought you might be tired of all the figurative stuff. 100% Photoshop with no preservatives. The first two took an hour, the rest took 20 minutes. Hope to make the CraigZ proud.

Studies from this week...

Second session with the same model. Refines the face and adjusted the arm and hand a bit more. Probably fuzzing a bit too much.(Can't help it.) Now all it needs is expensive jewelry and some sort of room with fancy furniture in the background.(Assuming she got married to a rich husband who is always out on business trips. Maybe a hot pool boy if I got that far...)

Another 1.5 hour study.(The one with crazy lighting.) Started off with a strange couple trying to check out the workshop. Of course, the husband runs around the studio looking at works and the model while the model is posing nude. After chasing the crazy couple out, an old confused soul came in and was about to pull the same stunt.(Of course, was asked to leave. But he turned out to be a nice guy who just had no idea that it wasn't appropriate.) Anyway, the model was nice enough to stay put while all this madness is going on. I wish the old Lee is at this workshop...(For those of you who know what I am talking about...)

When is it going to end?

Nude figure after another nude, when is it going to end? Well, I have no clue. Still enjoy doing it.(Although I am not sure if I am getting anywhere with it.) Here are two from last weeks workshops.

This is the first week of a 2 week portrait session. Got about 1.5 hours of working time on the 12x24 board.(Found in a dumpster of course.) Still a long way to go. Hopefully I will be a bit further along in the second session.

Another addition to the nude figure painting collection.

Between answering phone call, changing music, keeping strange people from causing trouble and wiping the waters on the floor, some how I was able to keep painting. Only got this far for a little over an hour. Too bad I didn't get to finish those sexy legs. Gotto move faster I guess.

Recent drawing

It is good to finally be drawing on regular drawing paper again. Have been drawing on the cheap printing paper from Costco for a few months now. Found a local supply of Acid Free drawing paper. Although not cheap, but it is affordable for practice.
