Figure Drawing Friday, March 8th 2019

It’s Figure Drawing Friday again! And, again, I’m reaching into the archives. This weeks drawings are among my favorites. I composited the sketches in this weeks image in Photoshop–I didn’t draw them on the same page or at that relative size. No, each drawing is about 8 inches square. I drew these in a Strathmore 400 series 11 x 14 hardbound sketchbook (the old black cover design) with Col-Erase Carmine Red pencil.

The drawing on the left has proportion issues, but I like it anyway. The drawing in the center, of the model sitting and leaning forward, is high on my list of favorites. It was one of those days where everything just worked.

I like the foreshortening challenge of the pose and am pleased with the rendering of the shoulders, hips, and legs. The angles of the shoulders and neck are realistic. However, I should have have drawn the clavicles to make it stronger.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the sketches.
