Quite rusty.

After i filled up my last sketch book, i discovered that having not done much regular sketching outside of class has had me slowly but surely losing my confidence with drawing people. I bought myself a moleskin to try and get back into the swing of things...things are off to a rocky start, whoooo boy.

My life drawing has gotta a little stiff, i need to find some ways to loosen it up a bit.

good stuff katie! nice work with mike, looks just like him! loosening up at life drawing...hmmm...i think the first step is showing up more than once a semester. maybe even more than twice. THEN, you could always come in completely trashed! but if that doesn't sound like a good idea, i would recommend treating the drawing process the same as you would for one of your characters...instead of trying to copy the model, make the model into a character, even adding clothes or turning the fat old lady into a skinny little supermodel. loosey goosey.
