Floofy makes ARTS (now with kiddies illustration)

A whole semester of life drawing. They're mostly in sequence. Some photos are a bit blurry- all the images were A1 and a bitch to capture.

SKELETAL STUDIES YEAH
The first thing we tackled. I was so VERY proud of these at the time but now they make me cringe.

Charcoal sketches
Each about 2-10 mins max. Generally this was the warm up for the day.

Motion studies
The model walks around, pausing for around a minute here and there whilst you cry all over your paper.

Tonal studies
Well, not entirely tonal, but starting to add more form and bulk rather than just looking at negative space etc.

B+W Paintings
Our male model had a tiny tiny penis. It sat on top of his largish, round balls, barely poking past them. This is why my paintings of him are rather crudely finished. IT WAS WINKING AT ME. Also I hate acrylic.

Pastels
However, I love oil pastels so much. I think I wanted a Cadbury's caramel dairy milk when I did the purple and yellow one, though. It's understandable, though, my Uni is in Bournville, just down the road from Cadbury's world. It's a weird little quaker village. There's no pubs, no chain stores, no cash points, and it smells of chocolate when it rains.

    No real crits at the moment, but I enjoy these. I can definitely see progress.

    The first pastel is gorgeous. You set up a very nice composition.

    THE END.

    Argh. Well apparently photo bucket have a taken a load down for violating their ToS. It seems really random, the one's they've pick out and left. Anyway I'm going to have to find a new free host, anybody know good ones? I've put up life drawings on photo buckets loads of times before, this has never been an issue.

    Weird.

    Imageshack moderates their content as well... not as tight as photobucket, though. There's always deviantart where they appreciate [strike]artistic porn[/strike] nudes better.

    That oil pastel piece is really really beautiful.

    So, some children's book illustration for some MAJOR contrast. I don't usually draw this way, incidentally.

    They're not in sequence- they were done up for a children's book competition that required 4 full page spreads and these were the strongest ideas out of the storyboarding.

    Didn't get in, but the only applicant from our uni that did had spent 2 years working on it in her MA- we had 9 weeks.

    I fourth (or whatever the hell we're on) that you finish that and try for publication. You may make it.

    love the childrens illustration, but for my money theres a couple grammatical errors that should be sorted out, after all you are supposed to be teaching, correct?

    "each night she dreamed up rainbows of beautiful colours"

    sounds off, I would have either 'she dreamt up rainbows' or 'she dreamed up a rainbow'

    "...and painted the fishies and sky and water"

    punctuation needed. 'and painted the fishies, the sky and the water'

    thats what I think anyhoo
