I've been drawing at the open life drawing sessions every week, and I'll just say that I was way out of practice. I noticed a lot of lost dexterity and lack of patience in my drawings starting out. But the last two sessions have gone a lot better. I've been trying to work on nailing down proportions, good line weight and value variation, accurate musculature, and accurate values. Most of the poses have been pretty short, rarely over 30 minutes so the value studies are a little harder to come by.
This was an hour pose from last week. There are a few good things going on, but I don't think the value really strengthened the drawing at all. In some areas it makes the forms confusing.
These two are from last week as well. One is a 10 minute pose and the other was 15 or 20.
Here I was just playing around during the 5 minute warm up drawings. All were done in 5 min. except the bottom facial study which was 10.
20 min. pose
30 min. pose
This last one was 45 minutes.
