I decided to bring my laptop to class today and draw on the Wacom tablet. I feel pretty good about the results, although I'm still fighting with the operating system a bit (stupid Vista!). I don't think Photoshop CS3 likes Vista, because I keep crashing mid-drawing. I finally started saving every 5 minutes or so, but I did lose at least one full drawing today. Anyway, I'm going to post just a few of the 3 minute gestures. I also had a couple of interesting longer poses. Here's everything. Comments welcome.
Everything you see here was drawn directly from life on a Wacom tablet. I did work back into the last couple of drawings in Photoshop when I got home, but not too much.
I wanted to push the darks in this next drawing.
It was pretty dark from my side of the room, so I looked for the heavy shadows to build the form.
I really like drawing from this model. She has a classical form, holds a pose like a stone, and always makes me look good.
For once, it looks like everything is clickable. So click on each drawing to see more detail. Enjoy, and let me hear form you!
