BIG FILE WARNING

So, further proof that I can draw things that don't look like big cartoon people. haha. Sorta..

I'm partial to the shiny belly. He was not a good model, but lord, the light done did shine off his rotund stomach in a way that worked well with pastels. lol.

Oh, and that torso with the arms crisscrossed over it: that's me. haha. I had to keep posing my arm, memorizing it for a second, drawing, and flinging my arm back into the pose, rinse, repeat.

These are a mish-mash of pieces from the beginning of 2009 and then the beginning of this year. OHBOY!

Oh, and sorry about the mature content labeling. I don't want people opening this at work and getting an unwanted eye-full.

Materials: thin black sharpie, HB-6B pencils, vine charcoal (my weapon of choice), sepia conte crayon, and pastels.

loving the torso with the hands one here especially, just dramatic expression with those hands, especially with how you emphasized it with darker lines :)

Thank you! That arm one and the leg one from the other collage were actually done as homework assignments (our instructor broke the class down by body parts, haha). He was insistent that we not do half-cocked work for those homework assignments and that they be interesting and very finished looking. I kept deciding to challenge myself because of that. haha

Kudos for that! my homework tends to be... nonexistant :P or half-assed, unless it's an essay I really enjoy working on :D

hahaha. Fabulous!

And yeah, like... I don't know, I think I'm just insane. lol. I was taking the class for FUN as well, but still felt like if I didn't produce these fantastic homework assignments, that I was a failure. This is clearly the talk of a crazy person. hahaha. Blarg. Blast me and my incessant need for good grades even when they don't matter! lol

the hands/arms wrapped around the torso with the drapery--to DIE for!! Wonderful technique and fullness of the drapery makes me jealous!! Keep it up!

Am I totally weird for knowing, between this one and the other one, which parts are you? Cause I did. Immediately. hahahaha Mostly cause I'm like "I think I've seen her wear that shirt...'

For whatever reason, I LOVE the little one of the bearded man with the pole behind his back. He reminds me of Zeus haha

Omgosh, you aren't, you just know me. hahaha. And DUDE, I'M SURE YOU HAVE SEEN THAT SHIRT. And if you haven't, I like.. rebuy the same kind of clothes over and over again, so you may have seen its fraternal twin or something.

And dude, THAT guy, did I tell you about him? During one of the breaks he got to talking to me about what kind of artist I was, and I was discussing characters for animation, and suddenly he flings his business card at me and goes, "If you ever need someone to study for the character Moses, here's my info!" HAHAHAHA. He was QUITE the wheeling and dealing model. This was just at one of my random sessions, too. lol. FABULOUS.
