Loomis out the details

This is a non-life drawing based on a shot of a cosplayer, but I don’t know the anime reference; sorry. I’ve been re-reading “Creative Illustration” by Andrew Loomis,…

Non-non-non-non-non-non-non-non-Life Drawing

More magazine based, non-life drawing. This week, drapery, cause it’s all about that jacket.

Life has been a bit sketchy this year

More Japanese magazine, photo based, non-life drawing. If it’s Japanese, you know school girls are gonna end up being involved at some point. This is still just a…

Non-life drawing is looking up

Only in the sense this is a low angle shot. I think this is the same model from an earlier post. This was a low angle pic, and back far…

Summer is winding down, we still locked in?

I write most of these posts about a month and half out, and right now is somewhere in the middle of July. Summer for most people has been…

Another non-life drawing

Another lovely lady from a Japanese magazine. I can never complain they don’t hold the pose.

It’s a chop shop of (not so…) life drawings!

I mentioned that while researching pics for the chopper cycle in the Beano gig, I kept coming across pics of the bike with attractive women used to sell…

Figure drawing is more like the SNL skit

No seriously, it is. I’ve said before, so many guys seem to expect a silly Hollywood version, where a super model shows up. When usually it’s a guy…

Psylocke psyche!

It is, aaaaand it isn’t. Took that normal figure drawing practice, and slapped a slightly altered Psylocke costume on the lady. She seemed a bit annoyed in the…

It’s Gojira… Run, kid!

I mentioned before that I’ve been drawing from a lot of Japanese publications, since I can’t go to life drawing sessions due to the pandemic. When I see…

Thru the non-life drawing looking glass

Another cosplay, photo based, non-life drawing.

No figure drawing? Go sleep it off

You know the drill by now. Anyway, in the original photo, the girl had an additional, outer skirt, made of something like chiffon. I didn’t like it, so…

More non-figure drawing, figure drawing.

Back to sketching from photos, and for this I tried to get a little more intimate in terms of space. Often with figure drawing I’ll keep back, like…

Not everything is the Mona Lisa

‘Cause not every drawing is a success. Here’s one that I felt I never got the face right. The reason I picked this shot from a Japanese magazine…

Ravishing “life” drawing of Raven

Another not life drawing, this time I made it Raven from Teen Titans. The pic was a girl drying her hair by a pool, and I really just…

What a life… drawing.

More photo based “life” drawing. No hero assignment, just trying to get things to look right. Her hair was just draped in the photo, so I added some…

Jumping for Jubilee!

More non-life, life drawing. A lot of the mega volume comics in Japan (Shonen Weekly, Big Comic, etc…) will have a couple of pages with pretty girls at…

Haven’t had much of a life (drawing) lately…

The pandemic put a hold on the life drawing sessions, so I can only draw from photos lately. I haven’t had much time for it with all the…

Playing with water color… been a long time!

I haven’t played with watercolor in what seems like forever. This isn’t very big, and I don’t know the woman. I think it’s from a reference book on…

Waiting for Gorgo?

OK, that’s a multi sub reference from Godot, to a MST3K parody; which about two people will get. Whatever. Here’s the long pose the new model started to…
