Life Drawing - 11th March 2013 II by TheElvishDevil Life Drawing - 11th March 2013 II by TheElvishDevil
:iconfaveandcomment1plz::iconfaveandcomment2plz: :iconccwelcomedplz1::iconccwelcomedplz2:

Drawn from life, 40mins. This is the first time since I have been going to this Life Drawing club (I say club as it isn't really a class because there isn't a teacher or any kind of tuition) that we have actually done a drawing that is longer than like 15mins per person - when we had two models together we did 30min drawings. I do like doing quicker drawings but it was nice to have longer to work on a drawing.

(I have no idea why this looks so fuzzy on DA but it is annoying :( )

Really interesting using the turquoise & red. I especially like the feet. It's really well done for a quick sketch. Would love to see a fully fleshed out piece.

This is a really nice sketch! I can already see you had fun with this! I like how you used two colors for the artwork instead of just one or many. You did a really great job on the folds and the perspective! Although to show the perspective a bit better using more vivid likes for things which are closer helps. The composition shows how the lady's lying down, your point of view and so on however the more vivid lines brings the head closer than the legs. I'm not saying that you should cut down on detail, oh no, the detail is great, but maybe that will help in the future with sketches. You're doing great! Good luck!

This looks really good.
You've done a great job on the perspective and pose with the decrease in length.
I also like the shading and how the two colours work together. :)

Wow, amazing! The details are great, and the different colors really give the piece some character.

Something I personally would change is the torso. I don't know what the model looked like, but I feel as if it's a bit awkward.
Also, the chin seems a bit small compared to the rest of her body. It makes her face look rather childish.

But other than that, this is a truly fantastic piece! :D The simple details are just amazing!

Really nice. I like the shading and the choices of colour. The facial expression of sleeping is well caught too.

I love your style of art, and the way you used only two colors for the image. I like the way you've captured the model, she looks restful yet trouble, deep in sleep and lost to the world

I'm having trouble figuring out how her legs (particularly her calves) are supposed to go. The cloth (even for all the wrinkles) still presents as sort of flat -- a lot of lights and darks but not a lot of perspective maybe. A good overall drawing anyway, especially if this was straight to pen/marker with no chance to modify.

Thank you :heart: It was drawn straight into pen.

I do agree with what you are saying *nodnod* it was drawn from life and that was how the dress was because I remember thinking that it did look rather flat.

This is awesome. I love how you've captured her sleeping with just the red and blue and the style. It's really nice :) I wish I could draw people this well!

Love it! :D I was guessing ball-point pen on the last one with these two colors but now I'm thinking marker? Anyway, I love the use of red and blue in your sketching.
