Figure Drawing Salon

Here's some stuff from Figure Drawing Salon, an open figure drawing session we hold most Wednesday nights at Cogswell. If you're interested, come on out and draw for 3 bucks from 7:00 to 10:00. Anyway not bad stuff for short poses. Fire me an email for more information. We try to keep it low key and have some fun. We play (sometimes distracting) music which gets the models into the swing......and sometimes when I'm having a bad night I just use the poses to draw trolls...Sometimes, when the night isn't going my way at all, I just make up stuff...I can't tell you where this one came from but I liked it, what do you think? Sorry BTW for not posting a challenge as of late. It's coming, I promise. Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!

Gorilla Gorilla

So I got a call from my old friend Cesar yesterday, and I felt bad because I had someplace to go and rushed him off the phone. I am VERY bad at keeping in touch with folks and really should do a better job of it, but am always very happy to hear from everybody. Thanks for calling Cesar!

If you don’t know Cesar, he’s a product of Cogswell College and just an awesome animator, he instantly earned my respect after just working with him for a few days. He is working mostly with Flash as of late and seems to be doing well with it. I remember him always going on and on about gorillas so I thought I’d post a gorilla progression I did in PS a while back. I blasted it out too quickly and was happy with the results at first but now that it’s had a chance to settle in, I feel like I need to go back and work on it more. Let me know what you think.
