Crocodile Scars and Snowbaths

So I wanted to try and use something other than charcoal :'D
My first thought was paint, as I had started to dabble with it a while back - but I only had acrylics and a paintbrush that had never been taken care of (and was more like a spatula than a brush(!)). Never the less, these are what came out! As always, I'm really focusing on the shadows to describe the form. I'm a fan of directional light :3
Donc, je voulais utiliser autre chose que du fusain :'D
Ma première pensée était la peinture, car il y avais un moment quand j'ai commencé a l'utiliser... Mais j'avais que de l'acrylique, et un pinceau pourri. Voici les résultats! Comme d'habitude, je me concentre sur les ombres pour décrire les formes. Je suis fan de la lumière directe :3

I then tried Ink with a new brush! Woot! But I still need to figure out how to use it :'D These look a little muddy...
I recently aquired some Life Drawing video tutorials of Vilppu... and I'm like, "Woooah". So hopefully I can learn some stuff and start to apply them to my sessions n.n
En suite, j'essayais l’encre avec un nouveau pinceau! Woot! Mais il faut que je sache comment l'utiliser :'D Celle ci ont l'air un peu salle...
Récemment j'ai obtenu des vidéos tutos pour croquis de nu par Vilppu... et je suis comme ça, "Whooah". Donc j’espère d'appliquer ce que j'apprends dans les cours suivants n.n

Poses between 10-20min

"...if you're hungry before going out to draw.. weeell. you don't get much drawing done!"

'Till the Next,

Rubber Onion said...

I love the hinted form in the first set of images

Helen Ström said...

Value is almost everything... (almost)!
You can also try to paint directly without drawing, to exercise a bit more.
Great work!!
A hug! Helen

Your work with paint is great! I really like the way you are able to sugest the entire shape, working with the shadows and significant light.
The portait with pencil is also amazing.
So ... now i am curious about that drawing you said you did of your feet :D... are you really leaving it on your sketchbook? :D

jLou said...

whaaa so good! really nice approach on those figures, and lovely portrait! very clean~~

Oh definitely, I gotta grub on somethin before I draw! Otherwise I get easily grouchy with my art work XD

Kristian said...

What more can I saw than WOW!
I absolutely adore these. You have truly captured the figure. The seventh from top is a masterpiece. I mean that. I really love this post.

Frankie Swan said...

Anthony Holden said...

These are so DOPE, dude! I'm inspired. Probably one of the biggest things I miss about LA is the figure drawing--much harder to find a session in Portland.

Hope you enjoy your holidays!
