View Full Version : life drawing thread
This years class just kicked off, hence are some pics.
Feel free to post yours!
Second pic: Her face looks excessively masculine?
(or am I blind?)
Pretty nice either way... /images/graemlins/wink.gif
Oh, and... nude? O_O
10-22-2004, 04:25 PM
I agree about the face being little too masculine (tho with more feminine hair she would look more like a female)
Also on the 1st pic her back is kinda "broken"
But they have that nice made by Pior look to them /images/graemlins/laugh.gif
/me is fanboy
10-22-2004, 08:59 PM
The pics simply reek with your style pior, but as stated previously,
the 2nd pic totally freaked me out as I thought I was looking at a man with a boob job done.
maybe this is on purpose? ;o
10-23-2004, 03:01 AM
guys.. it's life drawing. He might have gotten the face dead on and you're doing nothing but insulting the woman in question. There's a much bigger problem, though; the upper body in the first pic is way large... and you spent all that time on shading! hehe. Good initiative piorman, I wish I got to do more of these
10-24-2004, 02:41 PM
so nice pior my frenchman buddy, I like the way you shade. I think though, that by using parralel lines, you are hurting the volume you could be creating by making them follow the contour of teh body. One of the biggest areas i see this is on the second picture, the shading on her ribcage, it really flattens it out, when you could be giving it a bit more roundness with curved lines. anywho they all look swank!
Jes, Tom and Bladder, yeah she was kindof masculine looking. The short hair combined with the strong facial features made her looking like a girlish man on some of the other student drawings too. But it's also true that I have been having a tendency to masculinize female headshapes recently... which sure doesn't help. /images/graemlins/smile.gif The girl was sexy tho /images/graemlins/smile.gif
Toom & Per, the back was sure relly weird on this pose... The timespan of this quick pose didn't help here either /images/graemlins/smile.gif
It's funny tho, because this teacher we are having tends to go a different way than many others. While you could think that art teachers tend to make everybody in one class draw the same way, this one insists very very much on style expression and personality conveyed by drawing even in this evening class that both beginners and advanced ppl are attending. I found this to be a really interesting approach but it's true that sometimes this can leads to some things slipping away... I guess that his take is to let the students that feel confident enough to correct their mistakes by themselfes... Maybe I simply did not see this one /images/graemlins/smile.gif
Poop, that's so true now that I look at this. I guess I should have crisscrossed this part instead of putting parallels lines on the shadowed area, or even better and as you suggest it, I should have followed the body curves... Great point! Actually I think I'll try to go this way next time :
Sometimes it's hard to think about all these things while in the life class... Better luck next time!
Post yours everyone!

Awesome shading on the aquaboy sketch. Any plans to color it some cool way?
10-27-2004, 09:09 AM
Pior, yea, she does have that kinda "Arnold" look (Sorry Guys but she does! ) about her. But for a Quick sketch it was done quite well on the back I think the area in the far right side the angle is just I dunno "off" in a way, but thats the only thing I saw that could have been corrected.
Was this off Pad? Or "Wacom"?
this weeks model was so bony... But great to work with nonetheless :]
10-29-2004, 03:09 PM
DAG on it pior! that last one has the best facial expression. I like the new contour shadding much better. good job my frenchbuddy!!!
Great stuff pior. I had life drawing class but we were working at A2 size, and I don't have a scanner. My digital camera has no batteries in at the moment /images/graemlins/smile.gif
Your line work is very fluid and confident. I love the style, as usual!

I was awfully late with my scans... And yeah thumbnails are cool!
great ones pior, as usual /images/graemlins/smile.gif
lovely man. very distinct shading, i think they are just great. You obviously have a way with simple shapes and shading but still give a wonderfull impresion of a whole thing. great.
Very nice Pior. Dang. Poop said it. But that no. 3 in your second batch there is just stunning. I want to marry her but Id settle for hanging her on my wall.
AH pior, those are great. I need to go back to some night figure classes :\
12-09-2004, 08:11 AM
How long, time, are those sketches though?
I'm taking a fast sketch figure class and some people can do that kind of quality in 5 minutes.
This school is making me feel inadequate....so I have to take more classes.
12-09-2004, 02:08 PM
Really nice work, the second lot are really nice.
12-09-2004, 07:29 PM
Go Go frenchfry power! Looking great Pior. I love the super dark shading. I think it could be a bit more powerful if you introduced a light grey and used it to draw attention to the parts that you leave in straight b&w like you have now.
Merci Vahl, tu es presque toujours celui qui les voit en premier par msn /images/graemlins/smile.gif
Arco, yeah I try to go simple, but it's sometimes annoying. I need to practice shading/rendering...
Yus Daz I like this one too /images/graemlins/smile.gif Except that the girl portrayed there is VERY bony... She came by during the break and asked me if she really has as many bones than in my sketches :/ And then she also asked me to give her bigger boobs on the next sketches. Funny conversation for sure /images/graemlins/laugh.gif
Adam, do it! It such a pleasure...
Nose, these are around 10 to 15 minutes poses on these. I'm not much of an extra fast drawer when it comes to life drawing :/ No wonder why these guys at the atelier can make better figures in less time, the gallery on the atelier website is short yet very impressive !! I also need to take more classes /images/graemlins/smile.gif
Thanks Therm, and Poop, yeah i thing you are right. I still have to practice my shading, atm I have a tendency to fall into pure black a bit too fast. So yeah your idea sounds good... Will try that later /images/graemlins/wink.gif
Below are a few from last thursday night. The teacher suprized everyone in the class when he made clear that we'll work on -5mins poses only this day. It was rather new since we don't even do superquick sketching/warming up usually. 2 hours like that, and the model almost fainted /images/graemlins/smile.gif
Hence nothing rendered below, but I'm very happy with this session tho. I liked the fragile/eerie look of everyones drawing this day.
No class next week unfortunately... I guess I need to find some naked girl somewhere else /images/graemlins/smile.gif
12-11-2004, 08:15 AM
they are always about /images/graemlins/smile.gif
third one down has a nice construction , and the last i love the back neat and tidy work.
12-15-2004, 02:55 PM
hey, aren't you the guy that made the Glumph? i came in here because i think i remember you.
12-15-2004, 05:29 PM
sweet stuff pior!
as always.. /images/graemlins/wink.gif
ye i bet u could so a little more for 10-15 min poses. i think perhaps u may wonna try get looser with ur lines and shading. perfectionism often consumes most of the pose time if u let it take over..
ill add some stuff to this thread,
unfortunately i dont have any short pose gesture stuff scanned at the moment. maybe later?
sorry for the cheap quality :~
Thermidor, I really enjoy these too. For some reason I like them more than my older/longer ones. Speedsketching is cool!
Jimmies, yus it'm me /images/graemlins/smile.gif I'm glad you enjoyed the model!
Shotgun, you're so right /images/graemlins/smile.gif I *do* need to get looser with all this, I tend to shade to hard end often end up with a little dark mess. I definately need more practice.
And man your studies are great... How long did it take to produce the first one? And this second one, whoa, it could be great as a rock/pop CD cover... It's my fav so far.
Don't hesitate and post some more!
I missed last weeks class because of a school trip... And it's winter break now... Can't wait!
12-20-2004, 06:01 PM
omg pior, would you plz stop amaze me /images/graemlins/laugh.gif Awesome stuff as usual /images/graemlins/smile.gif I really dig the last man pose.
12-21-2004, 11:53 PM
Nice work Pior, your drawings have really improved since the start of this thread.
shotgun - I really enjoy your drawings too, particularly the head studies.
Here is my humble addition to this thread, my most recent life drawings
Oil painting from life, 3 hours
tombo marker, 5 min
charcoal, 2 min
some older gesture drawings from October.
12-22-2004, 08:27 PM
Pior, this isn't your first time in life drawing, is it? I really like how your playing with line quality, especially your second batch. I hope you plan to keep us updated. Kick ass conté portraits Shotgun! The reclining portrait of the chick is friggen awesome. Eli, you have very nice motion in your gestures. Good stuff, I'm envious.
I'm in the same boat as mop, I don't have a digi handy so I can't show any of my conté/ink etc. drawings. I did lug my laptop to class a couple times and drew with the trusty `ol Wacom (which proved challenging). So, here's my poop, I mean drawings.

Hey Eli I'm glad to see you posting here! I'm sure Poop posed for you at MBW, so don't feel shy and all, post these too!
Masta, you could use the computer 'opportunity' to try your hand at full color sketches maybe... Man I'd really like to have a laptop to be able to Opencanvas during the class /images/graemlins/wink.gif
Some more below. I've been changing tools for tonight's class it turned out to be a bit different... I don't know yet.
First batch is for the ladies!

HAHAHA pior ... poop poses for everyone /images/graemlins/wink.gif
Here are a couple I did during the MBW:
5 mins, marker only:
15-20 mins, marker and ink:
3 mins, pen:
Cool stuff here pior... nice thread! /images/graemlins/smile.gif
01-14-2005, 08:39 AM
Still figuring out how to take digital photos
This is an example of what I was crank'n out in my QuickSketch Life Drawing class. These are 3 to 5 minute poses. The teacher wants me to emphasize more rendering and shading.......and I've seen the teacher do it, so it's possible.
Woo woo Moppy I dig the lightness of the last one.. And the Tria+ink combo works well on the nude too. Funky hairdo she has! I think I saw this girl on an oil painting done at the mbw too.
Noserider, each time you post its the perfect ad for the Wattsatelier... You really make me want to be in a place like that. And hummmm a teacher that actually draws during the class sounds like the gem /images/graemlins/smile.gif
All in one I love these. Can you tell a bit more about the technique? Especially the tool you use to shade. I've been trying to find something that'd allow broad and smooth crosshatching like on your bottom-right bunch. Or maybe I'm just not doing it properly... I don't know. I've been trying the 'pierre noire' thing recently, and its getting closer, but some insights would be appreciated anyways /images/graemlins/wink.gif
And btw, are you taking the class full time? Or is that like an evening class you are taking as an extra? Just curious /images/graemlins/wink.gif
01-14-2005, 10:35 AM
These guys are using charcoal [pencils],not charcoal sticks....pencils with charcoal.
However, Watts Atelier emphasizes holding your charcoal pencil differently then when you hold a regular pencil to write with, so there's still a technique involved.
[ QUOTE ]
Holding the Drawing Tool - The way the tool is held is very important in drawing. It is usually better to hold it very loosely in the fingers - in the usual way, but with the thumb and first two fingers 2 or more inches above the point. Even better is to have the thumb and first two fingers in a more straightened out position, palm facing down. With a piece of charcoal or pastel, a good way is to hold the tool between the thumb and all of the fingers, palm down. These last two positions make it easier to use cross-hatching, which is a good way to do shading of lights and darks (chiaroscuro). Although it is OK to draw with the hand in some cases, it is usually better to draw not just with the hand, but with the arm itself. Especially when one is standing to draw at an easel, this lends itself to a looser way of working. Also, one is then able to see the drawing from more of a distance away, which is good for checking proportions, and progress in general.
[/ QUOTE ]
This is the best it can be described without making photo reference.
They emphasize Conte Charcoal Pencils:
This is an example of the teachers QuickSketch Work, and I've seen better:
Right now I'm taking 4 classes and a Maya 3D Software Class at a different school.
01-25-2005, 09:29 AM
This was done at a 3 hour uninstructed workshop class.....and I still don't know how to render with charcoal pencil, according to my instructors. So that gives you an idea of what kind of talent I go up against.
01-26-2005, 06:17 AM
and so on.
Will never stop loving your work pior :P
Do you construct your drawings? I can never see any evidence of it in your work, either that or you do it very faintly /images/graemlins/smile.gif If you dont, you should try it, makes everything far simpler.
Although listening to me may not work since ive never had a class in my life, my degree does not let me have the time /images/graemlins/frown.gif I wish i could go to something similar to where you guys do!
01-26-2005, 06:53 AM
nose rider. very interesting actually i was thinkin about tryin charcoal as i remember it a teacher of mine used it.
thanks for the tips...
01-26-2005, 10:53 AM
charcoal penciles give me the hibbi gibbiz!
its like putting ur front teeth into a popstickal
or slowly tearing a piece of paper
or scratching ur nails on
well u know
dont like it
Hey Mak, smooth stuff you have here. That looks like some good practice!
About construction lines and all, well I guess it depends. When drawing from photos and/or while concept sketching I think its the way to go... But when it comes to life drawing my instructor tends to emphasize on what you feel about the model, his/her personality and so on...
I used very 'hard' lines some weeks ago (for both construction and rendering) and he told me that the drawing was looking like some heavy stone statue, that it was hard to 'enter' the drawing because of this. Wooo that was so true... I'm trying to use light, uncertain lines for construction and I like this better.
I'm having a hard time with rendering tho... Charcoal pencils are cool but I don't master them at all, everything tends to turn pitch black. I'm happy with the first one but the others went out of hand. Any advice NoseRider? This girl you did is great btw... Really nice.

pior- I am not sure if you are sticking to charcoal pencils only but I tend to like pencils and blocks of charcoal for just what u mentioned. I grind up a little amount off a block into a power and then get dirty with my fingers and eraser. Tends to let me control depth and contrast more gradualy. I am sure you feel the same way but every finger used to apply chacoal is like a diffrent grade pencil, altho I do like to use my thumb,index, and pinky the most. Give a try sometime, and have fun.
These new ones are excellent Pior - the first one is my favourite, very well done. The lines are very nice, and a there's good sense of weight to the model.
Makaveli: Nice pencil work!
01-27-2005, 10:30 PM
Nice use of value Pior, You really get the full range out of those.
Makaveli, lots of nice work there. I would recomend getting an ebony, or 8b pencil to really add some darks in there.
Noserider, looking good, but I would say the biggest thing I notice, is that you aren't really popping the forms. Try to get more value range, and use some of the lines to contour your volumes.
01-28-2005, 12:43 PM
this model seriously cant sit still for more than 1 minute,
so its mostly made up and finished from my head
Hmmm Shotgun I like this bearded guy that pop up once in a while in your studies... Looks like a good model to work from.

02-04-2005, 12:16 PM
ye i like him a lot!
he is one of the better models we have here, very still, cool shave..
good stuff pior, very smoothy very piorish
i think they would work a lot better if u just pushed the values on some areas
like just put ur darkest darks in and make things "lock" u know what i mean.. cuz its all there the figuer and pose etc, just matter of putting it in and it could easily make things look a lot better
02-04-2005, 08:01 PM
Great work as always Shotgun and Pior
Another 3-hour oil painting from me.
02-05-2005, 11:58 AM
im not sure what it is eli, but she has a lot of you in her
the way she looks
the pink hue on the cheeks maybe? /images/graemlins/smile.gif
from my non existing experience in oil paintings (im just starting acrilycs now) id say that i think u should have put more effort into the background, even just values and colors to pop the girl out
also, compoistion wise its not exactly bust its not exactly lower bust with hands its kinda in the middle.. say if u chopped her off below neck i believe itd be a stronger piece
the vest is pretty rough compared to the face, and the left shoulder is not really there to support it so it looks kinda off

the first batch is very rigid, I don't like them :/ I forced myself to use gesture drawings as a base for most of the sketches during yesterdays class and it was sooo much easier /images/graemlins/smile.gif
Eli, its nice to see you are experimenting with oils. What color do you use? I mean, do you mix them tourself or are you using some starter kit with flesh colors ready? I don't know what to buy/where to start with oils...
03-14-2005, 07:42 AM
Come on, you guys can't let this thread die!
Life drawing class where teacher allowed us to draw with any medium we wanted.....this case digital.
03-14-2005, 03:42 PM
just some stuff i am including in my 6th term portfolio review for school...
03-14-2005, 05:21 PM
what the heck
a hands study from today
03-17-2005, 12:27 AM
Qualifies as life drawing....it's from life.
Wooo I love the 'graphic' qualities of these Nose. What are you bringing with you for the classes actually? Laptop + tablet, or some kind of PDA or PocketPC?
If possible, you might want to try your hands at opencanvas1, I feel like it would work like a charm in such an environnement.
More to come!
03-17-2005, 07:56 AM
Thanks! I'm using a HP AMD 2200 Laptop with a Wacom Intutous 2 6x8 tablet.
I'm familiar with opencanvas, but I use Multi Layer with my digital drawings in Photoshop.....I don't know if opencanvas has that layering system?

Drawing more naked people. I'm forced to do it.

Awesome stuff in here, love the varient of styles. Top notch! Here are a few of my own pieces, and I hope to see this thread continue, as life drawing is something that should get some respect.
04-30-2005, 08:05 AM
I figured I should get in on this action, now that I'm finally drawing from life again...
Shotgun and prior, you guys are inspirational!
This model was the most awesomest model I've drawn from. Check out some of these poses. She could only hold most of them for 10 minutes, but still.. it's rare to find a model who enjoys coming up with such crazy poses.
04-30-2005, 08:06 AM
oh, those little ones were 30-45 second poses.
04-30-2005, 08:47 AM
joe: awesome! seriously.
05-04-2005, 01:40 AM
Spark, these are excellent.
Please post more.
Some random studies.
I feel shamefull posting this,
sorry for the crappy cam job :~
05-04-2005, 05:29 AM
The only pics I have photo's from.
Maybe I will post some more recent work now I have a digital camera.

Here are a few more pieces to add to this thread.
Shotgun, thanks for the kind comments...and ditto about your work. I especially like the lady with the collar, great wieght and line quality to your work.
Noserider, I love the classic feel to your work, and the use of positive and negative shapes.
Pior, nice work as usual!

Finally got a decent drawing of my little boy. It seems like he NEVER stops moving!
05-18-2005, 03:08 PM
First time i did a drawing with charcoal (it was my first class). The model was great, only i wish the teacher gave us more time to draw!!!
charcoal powder and pencil [edit : second pic fucked up... got to fix that up :/ ]

Pior, you know how Feng Zhu puts down line art and uses PrismaColor Markers....try that. I think markers would look great with your line style. Your powder charcoal reminds me of markers.
I've been playing around with 10, 30, 50, 70, 100 percent black/grey markers, and I like the result.
05-23-2005, 12:19 PM
pior shotgun, luv u
everybody in here, this is really cool. I'm a turd, don't put in time for the traditional.
Sorry for the spam!
06-25-2005, 11:17 PM
Y'know, traditional art is important.........eh, whatever.
06-26-2005, 04:03 AM
dont you just hate those models..?
their face is beautiful, they manner is very sexy, but they have let their body down too much
you cant help but wonder "what if..", and you always have conflicting thoughts while you are drawing them..
do you know what im talking about?
anyways, unapropriate thoughts aside, great control in these, good to see u posting man.. deffinately keep it up.
06-26-2005, 06:39 AM
You mean "Do I wanna do a chubby, and what will my friends think?" or "I'll do her when I'm lonely, but I wont go out with her." thoughts?
Yeah, I know what you mean......more unapropirate thoughts.
I know I'm inviting flamers....I don't care. Take a midol.
shotgun started it.
Besides, if you start flaming maybe you'll take an interest in this dieing thread.
06-26-2005, 07:08 AM
right on bro, u know exactly what i mean.
tbh the intellect of a woman is far more important than a few flaps of fat.
besides, u know what they say about the chubbies /images/graemlins/wink.gif
07-30-2005, 08:29 PM
I've been playing around with different mediums in different life drawing classes.
1st one to the left is just a 40 minute prisma color cool grey marker drawing, 2nd is a 40 minute digital color photoshop drawing from life.
Y'know, traditional art classes are important....eh, whatever.
07-30-2005, 11:18 PM
pior if you have some sort of disease that's making you draw like this, you really must bottle that shit and sell it.
08-24-2006, 07:40 AM
Oh noes! Oh yes! It's the life drawing thread /images/graemlins/smile.gif
My drawings here are really huge (1m/30inches tall) so these are all photos of them.
I got absolutely drenched in pastel dust while doing these, much fun /images/graemlins/laugh.gif
11-03-2006, 05:24 AM
And again! Come on lets see some from the rest of yous mofos /images/graemlins/laugh.gif
11-05-2006, 01:22 PM
Theres some amazing stuff in here. Heres some of my own life drawings.
Sorry for the way some of them are arranged /images/graemlins/frown.gif
Theres some beautiful drawings in this thread, lets keep them coming.
Necrothread no more!
Thought of putting these in a digital sketchbook but I find it more motivating when everybody puts up things in a shared thread, for suggestion and critiques.
Finally have access to newsprint, loving it! First two are charcoal, next are Nupastels. The one on a 5/10 grey background was done on a spray paint base. It makes newsprint hard and smooth and allows for complete erasure. Will coat tons of pages for next time!

Why, that's a genius idea! What kind of spraypaint do you use?
And, since I've just recently gotten back into figure drawing...
The mean kind!
What an awesome thread :D I am glad it has been brought back from the dead.
Now I am incredibly sad I'm out of school and don't have life drawing all the time... DAMN do I miss it. :( Not sure where I have that I could go to now...
Amazing stuff, post again people! Do it! I wanna see more!
10-13-2008, 04:48 AM
Haven't posted anything in a while. These are a few months old. Man, I need to do more life drawing.
same pose, 2 angles:
10-13-2008, 07:07 PM
Sweet! A life drawing thread!!!
These are from the other night. Between 10 and 15 minutes each.
10-14-2008, 12:53 PM
Those are great, struve.
Here's one more:
Funka--Lovely penwork, the shading with the pen looks really awesome!
Struve--Such a soft and beautiful style, it's awesome. How do you make your shadows so flowy and yet still properly convey the shape and definition of the body? I'm impressed :)
Great stuff, more! :D -sniffs- I'm so jealous, I miss my life drawing class... I'm so deprived of drawing naked peoples....
10-16-2008, 06:00 AM
struve im impressed you do a terriffic job of keeping soft shadows while it can be quite tempting to go too dark while using charchoal...unless its vine, but it dosnt appear to be, nice work!
