MODEL FIESTA 2009!


The 2009 Model Fiesta put on by the Sktech Club was back in April but I just documented the work this week. It's always a great event and a highlight of every spring

The last of the random 2009 life drawing, but I'll be posting works from the 2009 Model Fiesta and this weekend's Dr. Sketchy's in the very near future!

Big Life Drawing Dump for Spring! Part One!










First of three for the week! This is all just random life drawing from the past 3 months.

Demos for in class model drawing!


We start off with drawing through and constructing body forms



Then we get into squash/stretch forms aka forceful shapes


And at the end we get to applied and directional forces. I use the Mike Mattesi book FORCE: Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators as a text, I have to hope that some of the info sticks because I only get a week with the model due to all the information we need to go over (Ten weeks of five hours a week is short and I have to teach them perspective from the inside out!). The good news is however that my class got bumped to a 200 level, so that means more model drawing in class starting next fall! A bonus for my students and me!
