I found something pretty cool today. Posemaniacs.com is a website where they have poses for quick figure sketches. The uncool thing about it, is that they are not "real" people look alikes, the models are more like straight out of the Bodies exhibition. The cool thing is that you don't have to pay the model fee and you can do any time you want to or can for a long as pleases you.
You can set it up so that the poses change every 30, 45, 60 or 90 seconds. It's a great way to practice. It's also available for iphones (free!):)
Here is what I was doing for the last 6 minutes or so. I had it set to 45 seconds and I didn't skip any poses. I switched from pencil to charcoal towards the end. Give it a try!
Here it is. Tried a little little bit of a smile:)
Other than this, I've been a real real slacker art wise. I need to get back on doing IF but I just won't make it this week. (again) :(
I have however been working on some sewing - tank tops actually. I know we're in the middle of the winter. It's freezing outside. But I'm just ready for spring. I'll put some photos up here once I've finally gotten around to taking them. Stay put.
I've been really really slacking as far as painting is concerned. Not that I've been lying around doing nothing, but have been really busy with everything else. Aga's asked me several times about Aries. I've had it sketched out forever and I still have a long way to go but here's a proof that I have started working on it:
I think I'm finished. I've been back and forth with it. That's an awesome thing about using a tablet, I can keep redoing everything without having to worry about making it worse, but then again, with endless possibilities I'm not sure when to stop:)
