Another chalk and charcoal attempt. Here, I was too aggressive with the white chalk, which I feel flattens the model out somewhat too much.
Another leg, was really trying so hard to be correct on the knee, and then she went into a different five-minute pose.
Every sketch hour has one…’blarh’ sketch, I feel. The only thing you can do is work at it the best you can and move on, despite the poor proportions and so forth.
20 minute pose. Loved having to deal with crossed limbs.
Such an amazingly challenging pose! Wished it lasted longer.
Apologies for the desmbodied legs. Focusing on only the lower body leaves not a whole lot of time for the upper body. Here I was thinking that I almost had the structure of the knees and ankles down…Think I still need to work on that.
Really trying to buckle down on how legs work. I think I did all right at the foreshortening on her upper leg. This was a five-minute study and I even got some shading in.
20 minute pose, totally set out to focus on the lower half of the body and improve my ability to render waists and legs, but I had never seen such a prominent backbone and became fascinated. I don’t think I rendered that correctly either, but maybe I’ll get to work with this wonderful model again sometime!
