Naturmuseum Luzern

Sketching session at the Naturmuseum in Luzern. Tried to do as many sketches as possible. Bird heads were the most challenging. I need to be more careful with the proportions on them.

Playmobile Tractor 3/4

I did a 3/4 version of the playmobile tractor I did last week. Line quality could be better I suppose but I tried to stay loose.

Toy bulldozer

Was warming up drawing this bulldozer toy model. Perspective is a bit dodgy but that's the best I can do today. I am taking the week off. Hopefully the quality of practice will improve.

Congo masks

Congo masks today, from Rietberg. Just layins, no rendering. Head construction drills from the figure drawing class are definitely helped me handled these.

Quick side view of son's shoe.

Did some gestures in a waiting room, using magazine laying around. Continuing to work on the head construction.

A propos gestures, this stuff is good.

Took a walk at lunch and sketched some stuff. Also did some gestures and head construction on this ugly yellow paper.
Not much energy to complete the homework ;)

I burnt my hand. Luckily daily practice was already done.

Analytical Figure Drawing Day 41

Did a page of figure construction, from this.

And finally found a good source for interesting pose, mime. For example this link

Still struggling with the "flow aspect" of the gesture.

Analytical Figure Drawing Day 39

Here is the page I submitted for week 7. One week to go.

Friday, June 7, 2013


I had a tough week.  Just one page of quick mma kicks gestures. Still not very happy with the flow of the gestures, I think there are still too many dangling lines. Tomorrow morning, homework.

Analytical Figure Drawing Day 38

Did not do 50 but was close.

Did also a live figure drawing session. Model was pregnant. Had a couple of beer before, was not very sharp.

Rest Part V

Tomorrow, I will try to do 50 head or gestures. Need to crank out the mileage.

Tuesday, June 4, 2013

Rest Part IV

Doodled again from today's newspaper. At some point, I will need to come back to the homework ;)

Monday, June 3, 2013

Rest Part III

At lunch break, doodled all the poses I could find in the daily newspaper.

Sunday, June 2, 2013

Rest Part II

Wanted to draw a lot today.  Had cleared time for that but stamina evaporated when I sat at my desk.
The only thing I did was this page of poses taken from the sunday newspaper at the cafe.

I think my human figure stuff will look good if I put the right amount of work!

Did only a couple of gestures today. Still trying to recover!
