Figure Drawing Portrait

Wednesdays are long pose nights, approx 1 hour and 30 min.  The hair is sort of a blahsville and I need to focus on the entire body's construction since I tend to do a lot of portraits and profiles.  Looks a lot better in person...


  1. HA! Blahsville, population you bro.

    Also, her arm is like, looks like, smooshed in to her chest.

    I like the ear. Sorry bud, I'm really no help.

    Keep trucking.

  2. I see... I think a lot of trouble came from when we take breaks during the session and the model has to reposition herself. I remember having trouble with the chest, right shoulder, and hair because of that (the charcoal just smeared when I tried doing adjusting the hair, hence the thick black line towards the back of her head).

    Even if I draw faster it's still going to be a bit of a prob since there are always going to be differences in the pose after the break. Maybe putting values down more lighty beforehand so I know where everything is placed, then pushing values and using the figure just for blending/light transitions reference after she repositions.
