Naked Tuesday

It's the end of the month and so the last time with Steve.  Last week I used the last page of my "ghetto book" and while they have been fun I'm looking forward to drawing on something other than flattened out paper bags stitched together with a cover of scrap mat board.  In order to celebrate I went out and bought nice paper specifically for the Tuesday night session.

Some clarification to Naked Tuesday since  there seems to be some confusion.

I am not a student.  This is not a bona fide class. 

I am a professional animator and I do this every Tuesday because
1. I love it.
2. It's good for my portfolio.
3. It's good for me artistically.
4. Many other reasons.

What it IS is a group that meets at an artist's studio every Tuesday night for the purpose of figure studies.  We start out with 5 gestures that last five minutes and then the rest of the evening is a long pose.

Any other questions?

  Steve: A selection of 5 minute gestures

I like them.  I wish I had been able to go a little bit faster so I could have done a better job on his feet and hands but his face actually isn't too bad in most of the drawings.  The one in right top corner is actually only a 3 minute drawing.

  Steve: One Hour

Well...I have mixed feelings about this one.  One the one hand, I think there is a lot that works rather well.  On the other it comes out looking a little more cariacatured than I would have liked.  It also come out a little more `high contrast' than I had originally anticipated though that does seem to be one of my trademarks.



What do you think sirs?

Yowza...I really, REALLY like the 1-hour drawing. I adore higher contrast charcoals and the like, so that really impressed me. Besides, the pose is amazing. :)

Yeah, he is such a fantabulous model I don't think I've ever seen him do a BAD pose.

I am a big sucker for high contrast drawings for the most part too. :)

Those 5-min gestures are fabulous. I love the kneeling one the best.

The questions people pose to you are exactly why I decided to do the politically motivated piece I titled "NO NUDITY"

Dedicated to the people who asked me why I did nudes. I feel insanely proud of myself when I actually do a good job of rendering the human body - Men I have a real hard time with because they are not curvy!

This class is a "bona fide" as any other.

I get together once a week with 3 other smart geeks to read and study together one of the classical works in Computer Science.

People getting together and doing that are the origin of the western tradition of the "college".

We've joked in deadly seriousness that when we reach the end of this course of study, we should award each other diplomas. They would be just as "real" as most any other diploma, which at the end of the day, is backed by nothing more than the earned respect of whoever grants one.
