Bargue Plate 10.

This one took a while. Not only are these plates challenging to learn, working with graphite on newsprint was a bad idea. Eh, I try things, sometimes they don’t work out. It was good practice due to the struggle for shading, though! Here’s the completed drawing:

Flexor group of the lower arm

I was dreading the lower arm, so many muscles! Here is the page I did for the flexor group of the lower arm. Lots of good practice drawing lower arm and upper hand bones, too.

Da Vinci shoulder study copy

This will be a thank you card for the friend who bought me the Da Vinci anatomy book. See, buy me good art books and you might get a drawing out of it! About 5-6″, graphite.

Loomis Mannikins

Working on the 2nd stage mannikins from Loomis’ Figure Drawing. These are really helping my visualize proportions. Besides adding a bit more structure, it’s getting a feel for the gesture of the bones and simplifies the 8-head scale into quarters (mostly for the lower half).

Loomis Mannikins

Working on 1st stage Loomis mannikins. Some from the book, some from abstracting photos, some from imagination.

Good for whipping up quick poses and builds nicely off the proportion work I was doing earlier in this book.

Darth Malgus

I did a drawing using a promo statue of Darth Malgus as reference. I started it on May 4th for a Star Wars project, but I also wanted to practice working from a live reference rather than a drawing copy. Graphite 9×12.
