I’ve had yesterday’s model before. She’s a ballerina and models like this professionally. What a difference it makes!
She’s a real fantastic model. She poses well and she has a real strange body type with a prominent rib cage. She also looks like marionette. There’s also a real big indent in the space between her rib cage and the pelvic area that does well to emphasize a twisting motion. The ribs are subtle and real hard to shade in. Actually they’re easy to block in with charcoal or the like but real tough to do with cross hatching because the shadow is so soft. Good practice, though. It turned out the best with the ass/legs at the top.
Other projects that aren’t lady poses soon, perhaps.
I went to figure drawing on Monday but the model was bad. REALLY bad. This chick was too and she constantly complained even though she was 20 minutes late. She gets a pass, though, because she went for a pose on a stool and by the time I looked up she had thunked onto the stage and then flopped onto the concrete. She was alright and she posed well overall so a zero sum, I guess.
The girl that came in Monday hadn’t posed for folks before so, to be fair, she had no idea what she was doing. So I got nothing out of that part of Monday but I did remember that I forgot these. So here.
