    DAY 20 (yesterday)

    Not figure work, but related to the previous post, I want to use soap bubbles as a visual element to tie the portrait together, so I spent the evening practicing rendering some in charcoal and graphite.  Most from reference, a couple from imagination.

    DAY 21

    I started this drawing quite few weeks ago and have been working on it on and off, but it had been long enough since I touched it that I was starting to feel like I was avoiding it a bit. So I spent a little time on it tonight. I think the head migh t be a bit big, but I’m kind of commited now.

    Thank you, dude! I need to prove to myself I can do this kind of figure drawing and that only laziness has previously held me back 😀

    Thank you! My Art School career was short and not very sweet! I went to Glasgow School of Art in 1999, completed first year, failed second year and dropped out after one term of my repeat year. But I would not have learned much about traditional art there anyway. I then gave up drawing and painting for a little over a decade (I was a huge dumbass back then), did a degree in Neuroscience (don’t ask), worked as a cancer scientist for several years and then returned to art in 2012 or so. I won a summer scholarship at the Florence Academy in 2014, which was amazing, but other than that my learning has been self directed from books, the web, the masters , etc. My lack of comprehensive training has always sapped my confidence and been a great weight hanging on me since I started drawing and painting again and I have never made it work as a career, to the extent that I had almost given up on it again over the last few years. Hence why I’m here! Sorry – you probably weren’t expecting my life story in response to your comment!

    DAY 23

    Started developing the background on this. Used a mixture of compressed and Nitram charcoal, which may have been a mistake, but I think it’s looking ok.r Cappy phone pic, sorry.

    DAY 24 & 25

    Still pluggin away at this thing. I’ve been deepening some of the shadows on the figure and lightening the background and I think the two are beginning to marry a bit better. Will need to revisit every area of the figure and make sure the the tonal heirarchy is working as I continue developing the environment. Slow progress, and a little tedious, but I’m determined to do the ebst job I can with this one.

    DAY 26 & 27

    Still working away on the figure drawing, and also finished the side view stereometric figure


    Lightroom seems to have added a watermark, which looks a bit pretentious.

    I was impressed with the work you submitted for Glenn’s drawing materials course, but I just now looked through this thread. Your work is amazing and so is your background! I especially love the charcoal figure drawing. I don’t feel qualified to offer any constructive feedback other than to say wow! I look forward to more of your posts!
