Nude Female Fig. 1
This is a longer sketch done in pen- about 5min or so. I crosshatched it- which I do a lot... I like crosshatching.
Female Profile Portrait
This is the same figure from above. This is done in pencil and, once again, done with crosshatching. It took about 30min or so.
Nude Female Fig. 2
A very quick gesture- about 1-2min. This is one of many short gestures of a beginning-of-class exercise we did to loosen up for a longer piece.
Female Nude Fig. 3
On this one I tried to bring out the figure with shape by using the broad side of the charcoal instead of line like I usually do. 8min.
Ricardo Profile Portrait
Done in pencil took about 5-10min.
Action Pose w/Sword 1
Done with one of my swords- I had my friend pose for a school assignment. 1-2min.
Action Pose w/Sword 2
Same assignment.. now much cooler with 2 swords! 5min.
Action Pose w/Sword 3
These were all done in my living room. 1-2min each.
Female Nude Fig.4
This is a longer piece- one of my first in the class but one of my favorites and, I think, most successful. I attempted to use the lighting to my advantage. A longer piece not quite finished and not quite a gesture. 20-30min.
So ya these are pretty much my favorite pieces from my last days at University of Central Missouri!
