Sunday figure drawing

A leisurely weekend after a long week at work...trying to loosen up with the line but probably lost focus on proportions...I blame the summer sun that's numbing my eyes!

L'aventure, c'est l'aventure

It was my father's birthday not too long ago. For the first time in years, I wanted to give him a drawing. One of the things I thank my dad for is all the  movies he showed me as I grew up and still to this day. The 70s French movie "L'aventure, c'est l'aventure" by Claude Lelouch is one of those films. I watch it every year or so and find little funny details every time. It's not the best movie ever made, but the camaraderie of the legendary cast is palpable. Some elements are dated however lots of it is still so current that it's pathetic... but isn't tragedy at the core of comedy?

The drawing is from a famous scene in the movie where the guys are trying to seduce women who are  half their age by parading in the most macho ridiculous way.  If you're curious, check out the scene here:

Joyeux anniversaire Papa!

Weekly figure drawing

I should use the term figure drawing to describe the posts from the last few months on this blog. Life drawing basically refers to drawing from a live model while I`ve been using the youtube channel "New Masters Academy" to draw. While drawing from a picture or video has nothing to do with drawing from real life, it's been  incredibly helpful to practice the basics whenever I find some time. Should you find yourself in the position where time is hard to find or if there aren't life drawing sessions near where you live, there are tons of resources online now.

Weekly life drawing

 I took a break from life drawing in the past two weeks as the weekends got busy with other activities and drawing assignments that I will post soon. In the mean time, didn't feel like the gestures were worth sharing. I needed more time to analyze.
