Last night I went over to Gaijin Studios to participate in their now weekly figure drawing class. The Gaijin guys are an amazingly talented bunch, and I figured they would know what they were doing in finding a good model and setting up some good lights, and I was not disappointed. The model was a real pro who could hold a pose like he was frozen in time. The lighting was great, and provided some good form and definition to work with. Here are the sketches I did, starting with some quick pose drawings and ending with a few 20-minute poses. All of these were done with black prismacolor pencil on light newsprint paper, except for the last two, when I got out the charcoal pencil and blending stump.
