Some Recent Practice Stuff.

These are all just really quick sketches, the time varied between 5-15 minutes. The first set are from a couple different nude drawing sessions, the second are of my fellow students who modeled in my class, and the last picture is just a hand study thing we did for a bit in one class.

There was a week between these (Above) drawings and the ones below. I can see an improvement.

The Drawings below are all from my class this last Thursday.

Friedrich Nietzsche

"When you look into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you."
-Friedrich Nietzsche

I got inspiration to do this drawing from a photo of Nietzsche towards the end of his life. He had a mental breakdown and was just staring at the wall.

This is my first pastel drawing. I did it pretty quick, only one night of work. I feel like it is still not done, but I am not sure what else it needs, I think that the white outlining that I did was probably a mistake... Oh well... I used oil pastels and a 18x24" canvas board.

Just finished this tonight, I was working from small photos, so details were hard. It is charcoal on watercolor paper.

Some Recent Drawings

These are two that I did a couple of weeks ago, the top one I am pretty happy with, the nose is really off but other than that I like it. The bottom one was done from a very small photo, so getting decent shading was really difficult.
