as you may well know, every Tuesday and Thursday Society of Illustrators hold sketch night. Tuesdays is nude, Thursdays is costumed. Its got fun live music, excellent models, and a reasonably priced cash bar. I frequented it with some regularity last summer. Now that I am in New York for good, I intend to go whenever possible.
I hit it up last night, and here are some doodles for you.
5 minutes:10 minutes:
that one stinks up the joint a bit. I made the head a little bit too big and sort of accidentally gave her a man's face. And not just any man's face, either. Now that I look at it, I totally drew the face of my friend Joe Bierma, which is odd, I must admit.
This one is a darn shame. I'm pleased with the way I drew the figure, but that head! barf! I erased and started over and that I think only made it worse. It certainly doesn't help that I switched to a black prismacolor to redo the head.
That sketch reminds me of when I was in high school I used to doodle these nice imaginary figures, but I was afraid to do the faces because I didn't think I could do them well, so rather than ruin a nice figure with a terrible face, I would draw animal's heads on them. I sort of wish I had done that here.
There. That's much improved.
Last pose of the evening:
