There really is no cheating in drawing or painting but I made a little "cheat sheet" for lack of a better word of some ideas that have really helped me over the last year or so. Just got around to updating it with some new stuff and thought I'd share. When I organize the information I find I retain it better. I learned most of this from classes from Rad Sechrist, Jackson Sze,  Marshall Vandruff, Bill Perkins and Walt Stanfield's notes.

Red Sonja at the Drawing Club

Haven't been figure drawing in awhile so I headed to Bob Kato's Drawing Club last Thursday. Just got around to posting. The theme was Red Sonja. One of my instructors from the Academy recommended the model. She has posed for Boris Vallejo and looked like she stepped right out of a Frazetta painting. These drawings are ok. I think the foreshortening on the second drawing could be better. I also kept running off the page - and didn't get the full figure in - not getting the grounding leg in the second drawing is a big no no. Although I would argue her balance was resting more forward. Excuses Excuses. Note to self ... need to do more hand and leg studies.

I Heart My Tombow Pen

More painting to come... hit a plateau so my current paintings are just for me.
