A portrait for today

Drawn on a too slanted board
After looking at my drawing for a bit, I realized that it was way off, and the front-to-back in comparison to the height was really quashed. Here is a drawing that I digitally corrected. I need to do some small construction sketches beside or pay attention to measurements. I can't believe I squashed it this much and it actually looked ok while I was drawing it.

Everyone loves their own ugly progeny... ;)

At least this one looks a little better with slightly corrected parallax errors.

Various Semi-Caricature Head Studies

Here are various semi-caricature head studies

Here are some odd bits... some odder than others....

Fantasy Drawing Group studies

Studies where I paid attention to local detail over global proportions.

elaborations on some reference shots I took

Here I go back to breaking advice that I
give out about paying attention to clean
layering of hatching

And here is something scribbly

Construction Drawings

I have been trying to pay attention the last few days to where I place the origin of the legs so that they lie within as opposed to below.

Also, I have been itching to do some drawings of the geometric locking of the knees elbows, and such. I should do so. I am not quite getting what you are saying about the circle to outline the upper part of the leg cylinder.

I really need to learn the names, and that will help me distinguish and differentiate them. I am aware that my knowledge of the upper back and down to the glute muscles is lacking in development. 

I suppose in real life my back muscles could use a bit more development, but that's a different matter... ha, ha! Need to get out of the office chair...

A Figure Drawing From Last Night

a figure drawing from last night

I think that I am going to try watercolor, because the large markers are just too patchy for me. Maybe next weeks result will be better.
