Going life drawing once a week during this film has seriously been one of the best decisions ive mader in a long time. Its been a great way to relax and cool down ready to carry on animating. If anyone is thinking about making a short film, i seriously recommend going to a life drawing class once a week!
Anywho, heres a few of the pieces ive done from said classes.
Attempt 1: 10 mins per individual pose with ink
Attempt 2: 10 mins per individual pose with ink
Experimenting with black chalk on white paper and erasing tone with a rubber
Experimenting with white chalk pencil on black paper
Experimenting with drawing tone with a 2B pencil
A failed experiment drawing with tone using charcoal on a foreshortened pose. the pose was a tricky one and i really struggle with drawing just with tone and no outlines, but i gave it my best and learnt a lot from it, the main thing being that the life model mentioned AFTER drawing her that she had fake boobs and they're dam near impossible to draw!
