Warm Up Sketch - Superman

I did this quickly the other day.  It's actually 2 drawings, one of the head and traps, the other of the body from the chest down.  I took 'em and mashed 'em together in photoshop. It doesn't really work but I don't care.

Life Drawing - May 3rd

Here's 2x 15 min poses and a 20min. The second 15 I used a mix of 2 colors of conté and some pencil.  
I was not happy at all with the results of this drawing session and I was determined to do at least one drawing that I liked so I caved and busted out the old HB pencil for this 20 minute pose.

Life Drawing - May 3rd

I missed last weeks life drawing because I was sick.  This week I went big and used almost all conté or graphite.  I did not love the results but I'm trying to figure it out. I have a hard time using conté or graphite how you're supposed to and not use it like a pencil.  My problem is that unlike a pencil they don't do exactly what I want them to do. 

Here's 3x 1 min poses & 3x 2 mins.

Life Drawing - April 19

I did some with pencil, ball point pen, & some with conte. I'm not super happy with any of these.  Next week, I'll use a large paper pad and only conte.
