Dug out some old life drawing

20th April 2014

I was going through some old stuff and came across some old life drawings in a half empty sketch book. These are actually from when I was still at uni, probably around 2003! Just thought I’d share them as this was when I decided to use the life drawing classes to practice an illustrative take on the human figure having spent the first two years drawing exactly what I saw. I was studying illustration, after all.

Despite their age, (and my fading memory) I’m pretty certain these were done using a cartridge fountain pen, which I then washed over with a wet brush to spread and blur the ink.
