The view from my seat
Throughout the class the model would pose in different ways and we all had to draw them, each pose lasted 5 minutes, and Dusty Limits (the host) would add random ideas which we had to fit into our drawings, for example one was that the model was in a secret garden. I started to draw 'properly' for a while, and then once the male model Lieutenant Luke came on, Dusty told us to draw him solely of geometric shapes, I realised from this that the way I draw actually is of made up shapes! This is probably because I work best when collaging, and like to create images using illustrator too, so I see everything I draw as made up shapes.
Amelie Soleil and my drawing of her in that pose
My first drawing of Lieutenant Luke, and then my
'geometric shapes' drawing of him, which is much better!
My drawings of Lieutenant Luke and Amelie Soleil
and both performers posing together.
I had a great time, it really helped me to think about how I draw people, especially because it was exactly the kind of people that I like to draw too. I cant wait until I can get down to another Dr Sketchy event!
