new clothed figures and a figure and costume carnival..

Costume Carnival(e) was fun.. didn't get much drawing done but here are some 5 minute-ers I liked.. experimenting w/rough newsprint.. below a 20 min fig from friday workshop.. meh..



So I was feeling like ( 'no more ILL classes!' recently) but we pulled out the toned paper yesterday and I had a little fun. Our model was new at least to us, and had NEVER worn a dress before.. she went from a self-aware city girl to a young woman with a story.. reserved for herself only maybe.. anyway, these are all short for toned - 10-20 minutes.. so very simple not tonnes of form but.. me like. some. And yes, I'm a sucker for the head when the model is looking away and all you get is a hint of eye shape, a hint of nose and mouth ( and cheekbone).. also, it takes about 20 seconds to draw so I can be on to other things and done with my head obsession for that pose! Seacrest: OUT!

Hey Kevin! Thanks for visiting my blog! :) I appreciate the encouragement with painting, I really struggled with it at the beginning of the semester (my paintings were full of gelatinous blob people). Your latest drawings look great! Although clothed figure + tone paper seems a little scary! Uncharted territory for me. But then you would always rock Sean's anatomy workshops with your drawings, so I bet it's easy for ya! :P

really fresh minimalistic approach on the toned paper drawings, kev :D i like the costume carnival piece, you really captured the model's facial expression well. post more of it man!

thanks all for very kind comments! all these toned works were so quick that it's hard to delve too far into form.. so maybe just indicating and lost and found can be nice too.. the costume carnivale, I didn't get that much done really as I was talking with so many people.. but it was fun.. i wish they did more of those things.. and -what ? only 4 pizzas for 80 people ??? ;-) k
