Art Student League sketches

March 2, 2012figure drawing, Sketches

This February I took a class at the Art Student League to do figure drawing. This is the second class I’m taking at the league, and so far both classes have been let downs. I’ve read good reviews of the League, so I don’t understand why my experience with it is so different. The class … Read More

Society of Illustrators Sketch night

September 17, 2011figure drawing, Sketches

I’d been meaning to go to the Society of Illustrators figure drawing sessions. Somebody had told me the sessions were like parties, and I wanted to see it for myself. I finally went on Thursday night, and it was by far the most upscale drawing session I’ve ever been to. Instead of being held in … Read More

Figure drawing : couple

Went to a life-drawing session last Wednesday and had both a male and a female model. It’s only the fourth time I’ve drawn two models at the same time and it can be challenging to draw two bodies in short poses. I personally wonder how the heck the models can actually be both naked at … Read More

I often see these figure drawings by artists that depict both highlights and shadow , so I want to try that … Read More

Figure drawing

February 13, 2011figure drawing, Sketches

Went to do some life drawing at the Spring Street Studio. In many ways I prefer the studio over the Art Student League, where I went last November. My main gripe against the life drawing classes at the league were the amount of long poses. Any pose over ten minutes long, to me, is a … Read More

Figure Drawing week 3

November 29, 2010figure drawing, Sketches

Last week was split between a male and female model. An interesting observation of these two models is that both of them look angry while posing. I wonder if it’s because they don’t really like posing, and if they don’t like it why do they do it? On another topic, I finished a sketchbook in … Read More
