Friday Figure

I caught myself a little early this morning. I have the worst way of elongating the torso so that it just doesn't fit, but I think this one turned out better. Not perfect, but better than normal.

The World Has Ended



Well, maybe not. But it could have, because I'm posting a few drawings. These are from this morning's figure drawing session at work. Last weekend, I was going through all of my pads of drawings from college and before, and I as amazed that I have almost completely forgotten most of the good things I learned...the gesture, the construction, line quality. All of those things have slowly ended up in the garbage bin within my head. So I'm trying to get them back. I kind of like the way this drawing turned out. A little heavy on the lines and outlining, but overall, I think it came out pretty good.
