More life drawing!




At last, after a gap of over 2 years the London chapter of the Animation Blogging Community have found a new, regular life drawing class to attend! Monday & Tuesday nights at the CANDID Arts Centre, Islington - behind Angel tube station. Here's what I did in the first session.

Very strong drawings, Matt! I love the drawings on the diagonal on the second page, especially the one in the bottom right corner! A perfect gesture.....

Twice a week? I think I really need to search out something in my area and get back into it as well.

fantastico matt!! very strong posing and wheight in your sketches. I haven't attended live drawing since I was in the art school, and it wasn't very often then either. I do some in summer at the beach, but is a bit unconfortable... all those punks playing fotball over you... your brain melting under the sun...
keep posting.
