Hello Man-purse! Thanks for the follow! You’re my 50th follower! <3 Yay!
This is part of a 24-drawing series for my figure communication class. Each week, we had to take 2 paintings by old masters and reinterpret them and/or change the angle. For this, I chose Ruben’s “Woman with a Mirror”.
18x24, charcoal pencil and white conté
Approx. 8 hours
This is also turning into an oil painting. I’ll be sure to post it soon!
KJ Davis. Not black and white, but I had to post anyway. This is a charcoal done by a girl I went to high school with. I had no idea how talented she was. In two years time after she gets her Bachelors she will be applying to work at Pixar Studios. I only ask that you share and help get this around. Thanks!
A charcoal/pastel drawing completed over two 3-hour sessions in class. There are definite problems (man, do you see his left hand? Pffft.) but I really like it. I’m definitely improving, which is really heartening to see. This model always has the best costumes - this time he’s some kind of cowboy’s drunken sidekick - and had a great sneer on for both sessions.
