Hey all! I’m going to publish Day 24 early. It’s just a little tight getting out to drawing class within the AM. I used to be virtually late for the primary set of poses (that’s why there’s a row of small heads in on the primary web page).
Right here’s our somewhat superb mannequin for the morning session.
I used to be fairly impressed with this fellow’s physique. In fact I didn’t ask his age, however I’m going to guess he’s over sixty? To be trustworthy, I’d put cash on him being seventy. He did have a scar from a hip substitute. Although I hear it was a automobile vs bike accident. Both method, I’ve by no means been in his form of form at any age! Even when I did nothing else however work out for the following ten years, I doubt I may obtain this. That is the physique of a lifelong athlete.
Frankly, it was an honor to make these drawings.
Yesterday I had *thought* I used to be going to come back in and be tremendous experimental. All free flowing and spontaneous. However – sitting there in entrance of at present’s fashions – I discovered myself simply making nicely noticed portraits.
I suppose I really feel, each our fashions had such gravitas, the least I may do was sketch them faithfully.
Right here’s our afternoon fellow.
I did take two liberties right here. Within the first pose I drew him heroically. His portrait is fairly shut really, however I gave him a extra chiseled construct.
Within the second pose, I felt the lighting on his face, and the autumn of his hair, referred to as for a leaner, extra monastic construct. Virtually ghostly.
He mentioned it’s precisely what he appeared like 20 years in the past 🙂
I had one little unfinished doodle left over – that 2″ head drawing. So I had some enjoyable portray him as Geralt of Rivia. (The Witcher). He has that fantasy hero hair!
