“It’s Not Easy Beeing Green.” “Don’t Be So Negative.”

Posted by Mark in Mark's Sketchbook


A couple of my favorites from today’s class. Above is a rare moment where I loosened up. The teacher mentioned that my initial sketch was too small on the page. So, I spent the last minute of the 5-minute pose enlarging it and quickly scribbling the curves. I need to see if I can maintain this sort of looseness, especially for quick sketches.

The drawing below was done using negative space. In other words, instead of drawing the model, we had to draw the areas of space outside of her, such as the space between her and the pole, which I’ve highlighted in red.

    Yeah, I’ve been lucky so far. 😉  But I think odds are at some point I’ll walk in and have to draw an off-season mall Santa Claus.
