Naked Tuesdays

Well, this is going to be the last Naked Tuesdays update for a while. Tonight's session was the last one for the summer. Apparently enough people don't come in the summertime to really make it worthwhile for the lady who runs the studio. It makes me sad but also gives me quite a sense of accomplishment.

I've been going consistently for 9 months now and I think there has been quite an improvement in my work. Sure, some weeks are misses and other weeks I am trying out new looks and techniques but for the most part I think what has helped the most is the consistancy in going.

And...I've enjoyed it. Don't get me wrong, I liked life drawing in school but it was also an enormous pressure/stress point for me whilst sojourning in Oh Canada. Even now I can see Werner's big yellow coat as he would burst angrily into the life drawing room and pace, hissing through his teeth in disapproval at our work.

So, I am proud of myself this year...for seeking it out, for going and for starting to love it. There were points when Tuesday nights were the only thing in my life I looked forward to. It got me through an enormous depression and I credit Naked Tuesdays with giving me the jump start I needed to get my career...and my LIFE back on track.

Lest you, gentle reader, be disheartened, fear not. I have my class on Thursday nights and I believe there is a class in July on Tuesdays I will be taking so there will be occassional updates...and hey, October really isn't that far away.

Five Minute Gestures
Naked! Nude

15 Minute Gesture:
Okay, this one is really rough but I was going for a quick powerful line instead of futzing around trying to get it perfect. Parts of it work, parts really don't...but I like it for the energy in it. For a more sedate pose, it's a high energy drawing. That's my excuse anyway. Heh.
and Cold!

What do you think sirs?

  • "ARRROOOO?" or "Is anybody there?"

    I miss the long form writing I used to do with my life. I should get back to it. Is anyone still here?

  • Checking in

    Got a notice that if I don't do a post every so often they'll delete my LJ account. I'd rather that not happen.

  • "10 Things" or "Q&A"

    In no particular order: 10. So?!! Well, the very short version is, I didn't get the job from Pixar. 9. Longer version? The slightly longer…
