Going to conventions with a sketchbook is kind of cool. I just spend all downtime drawing and the place is swarming with other artists to get feedback and talk about techniques. Dino really helped me out today.
I should conserve some space in my small sketchbook, what I did today with one-character-per-page was kind of awful.
Today I learned about a technique for drawing gesture called "The Bean" at a youtube channel called Proko. I used it in conjunction with a neat little life drawing service featuring lots of cool poses by nude or dressed female and male models.
I've also been experimenting with hands since Chloe referred me to Milt Kahl.
Besides that I've been looking in to life drawing events in London. Turns out there is one pretty close to where I live which is run in a strip club. What I find a little funny, is that because of the life-drawing events, they've got student discount on entering the club.
I had a stab at drawing the skeletal structure above the torso. Some googling around and I now know the name of a few bones.
Since my colleague Duncan is a recreational dancer, he usually strike pretty good poses in the office. Tried to capture some of his gestures at lunch today.
Other than that I managed to capture a few interesting ones on the tube.
