Usually I use grid for my pencil portrait but this one was done freehand,without any measurement.
I guess I will be doing more like these, try different paper and see what emerges!

This is more like the work of Derek Jones ...he is very good at these figure drawings.You can see him in my blog roll.I like his style.

Second one is a bit older...I did it sitting at a picnic table in our neighbourhood park while the sun was still shining.An elderly couple, enjoying the sun and having their snacks at the bench nearby.Later I used ink pen and brush on the drawing.

Pencil and charcoal on paper
Tuesday, November 8, 2011
At yesterday's figure drawing session, my attempt at black paper and chalk failed miserably.Lack of contrast being one reason-- the only light that we had was reflected greyish daylight coming from the big windows coupled with two or three overhead fluorescent lights. Not really dramatic!....I switched to a more versatile medium, my colour pencils.And last two sketches were done in these- about 30 minutes each.You are right about this being a tough job for these guys who pose for us.This guy is probably new to the job; not really used to it.He has a cute face;looks like' Hagrid' of Harry Potter because of his size and wavy long hair.He does seem a bit shy, keeps shifting, can't hold a pose comfortably for more than 15 minutes.The skinny guy in my last pose was a pro.He gave poses without prompting, sat through them in a very relax manner and even came to each of us, checking our progress - time to time...It takes guts! :)

Some of the sketches I have been doing in my Figure Drawing sessions.As you can see, model P (plump) was more fun to draw than model S ( skinny).I have been doing these in pencil so far, but in today's session I am taking black craft paper and some colored chalk.I hope the results would be good enough for sharing here.So watch out for this space tomorrow for something new!
Have a good day
