After a long day I was given the opportunity to participate in Mark Northcott's Liquid Imagination at Atelier Artista. We did a lot of short poses and though I felt rusty and fatigued I was really glad I took part by the end of it.
We ended off the Arts Academy class with using our drawing skills on a fun game, but before we did the students created their final pieces with an open choice of media after a course overview and review.

Lately my figure drawing process has become window-shading. its a fast way, after a general lay in, to capture and render from head to toe. This time I didn't quite make it to the end and left the foot unfinished revealing my process. Essentially "window-shading" is an area by area method of working on the piece after the overall composition has been drawn in. Below is the one I did from the last figure drawing session at Atelier Artista.
If you'd like to join in the fun we draw from life every Wednesday night 7 - 10 pm at Atelier Artista located n the fourth floor of cSPACE!

Take a look at Atelier Artista's regular Wednesday evening group. We were blessed by a pleasant treat, we had a live string quartet while our male model Devin did long pose. You can have a look and listen to the little iphone video I show below. Sorry viewers, no nude male model recorded here.
Here is another glimpse into the night. The sound was so much more than I could have anticipated. So much volume without amplification. Here is the drawing after the second sitting, I almost feel this is enough and I could have left it at that..........and then once the time has run out and the drawing has come to completion, after some help from my friends both in eyes and with hands :D
I had 3 of my classes at ACAd come to a close this week.
Nice work, I can't wait to continue on next semester where we will delve deeper into the anatomy and discuss sub surface tissue and muscles.
I managed to get in a bit of drawing time in of Melanin during the final figure drawing class on the last pose of the fall semester. The students had an opportunity to push their rendering in the long pose below:
