Pin-up Life Drawing



Here is a drawing I did of the model Nikki Halley over at the Bee on Kettner street downtown.

How long was the pose for the figure?

After subtracting model brakes and lunch I'd say about 4 and a half hours give or take. I purposefully spent the first session doing rough thumbs just to warm-up and plan out the composition plus I screwed up my first lay-in. I hadn't done any life drawing in two weeks so I took my time. I think it shows (in some parts).

Thanks for the compliment man but thats not a good attitude. Go find yourself a life drawing workshop somewhere and draw. Even if I have a bad day drawing I still get motivated to get better as a professional and it keeps everything I do in perspective especially when I see teacher and my peers who are much better than me.
