life drawing 2012/10/17 at chester/anny's

short poses wednesday, model name was unknown... something "ke ren" (fellow drawer called her 蕭亞軒). suspect: there are rather few models around (even though so far there has been no repeats) that there's really no reason to remember the names.

attempted "calligraphic" approaches as Jeff Watts recommended on course description for the figure quickdraw class. failed miserably as the figures were only drawn with the torso and no other approach was attempted. again, found that the practices done on paper with a ball-point pen simply do not translate to "real" events.

one influence on calligraphy is that it's highly muscular: e.g. the way/strength a pencil is held strongly influences the outcome under high-speed, intuitive, brainless outputs. suspect: to have a good quickdraw something muscular also has to be trained. an attempt was made this week to do some "under-hand" strokes as this was the approach outlined by Gist on his techniques. the posture is foreign and produced a few less attractive lines.

continue to struggle with tone, with lines -- will revert back to mannekin drawings. not sure how Jorge is producing those great tones with the same materials (also very thin lines... this i found approximatible by sharpening bunch of pencils).
